'' So this is your tower?it needs improving!" — Rose on the Dark Tower shortly after her arrival

Rose is the first mistress encountered in Overlord


Rose was born to the Wizard and is the sister of Velvet. She also seemed to be the Lady of Castle Spree, before it fell on siege.

While helping refugees of the Plague in Heaven's Peak, Castle Spree came under attack by bandits, led by someone who seemed to be Kahn and Jewel,. She was saved by the Third Overlord, who drove the bandits from the castle, and afterwards, she joined him to be his mistress.

When the Third Overlord went to Heaven's Peak to investigate the plague, Rose discovered that the woman to be married to Sir William the Black was her sister, Velvet. Initially she attempted to hide this detail, but eventually came clean when the Overlord stopped the plague by killing the source, the Succubus Queen. She holds much disdain for her younger sibling, looking down on her as a spoilt, materialistic brat too used to getting what she wants. After defeating Sir William, the Overlord deals with the mistresses

After the Overlord has defeated six of the heroes, the Wizard appears at the Dark Tower and reveals himself as the Second Overlord. She or Velvet come to the Wizard's Aid. As the Second Overlord drains the third of his spells,Rose\Velvet damages the Tower Heart, giving the current Overlord the fighting chance he needed to defeat his predecessor.

Months later, after the Abyss crisis in Overlord: Raising Hell, if the Overlord chose Rose, she will be revealed to be pregnant with the Third Overlord's child.


After the events of Overlord: Raising Hell, in either case, Rose left the Dark Tower. Canonically, this was because she was pregnant with the Third Overlord's child, and, according to Gnarl, declared that a "Dark Tower was no place to raise a baby". This allowed Florian Greenheart to attempt to steal the Tower Heart, damaging it in the process. (Whether or not Rose assisted Florian in his attempt to steal the Tower Heart is unknown). This resulted in the Great Cataclysm, destroying and warping the surrounding lands of the Dark Tower, spreading a magical plague and general disorder. 

At some point after this, Rose left the Overlad at Nordberg. Per dialogue in Overlord II, this was because she knew how strong he could become if he was allowed to become the Overlord, and wanted the Glorious Empire to have a chance to grow. Rose assisted Florian in his rise to power and the founding of his Glorious Empire, where he would take the identity of Emperor Solarius. Rose may have hoped that Florian would bring order to the world in the absence of the Third Overlord, who still remained trapped within the Infernal Abyss. She later married Marius, Solarius' right-hand man and spokesperson

Overlord II

After several years, the Overlad was found by the minions and taken to the Netherworld, until he was old enough to take the throne as Overlord. In the meanwhile the Glorious Empire grew prosperous with the help of Rose. After the Fourth Overlord conquered the cities of Nordberg and Everlight, Rose went to visit the Fourth Overlord. Rose warned him of the dangers of treading the path of an Overlord, but she told him to defeat the Glorious Empire and that the answers he sought were in the 'old lands ', now reduced to a mess of wastelands. In the final battle at the Empire City, Rose changed sides and supported the Overlord and told him to destroy Solarius and the Great Devourer. In the end, she is seen flanked by two sentinels.

Personality and Traits

Rose does not like things to be disorganized and is more proper woman compared to her spoiled sister Velvet,though this hides a more treacherous ,arrogant and childish attitude,believing that she's the 'intelligent' choice between her and her sister and to be better,it is shown to be easily manipulated,because if the player dumps her for Velvet,she will believe that the possessed Wizard is still her father. As of Overlord II she develops a belief in Order over good & evil and a cycle of balance, where when one gets too strong another must rise to defeat it, with Solarius being the 'good' (although the story proves otherwise,Florian being the one to exterminate every magic creature in order to be worshipped as a deity and the Overlord being the guy who stops him) to be defeated while the Overlad must be the 'Evil' to restore the balance, eventually to be slain


This is one of the most debated and controversial topics still discussed by fans,Although Rose is supposed to be the 'True' mistress of the Third Overlord,there are many facts that completely invalidate this,the fact that speaks about the Overlord destroying everything,the women,the minions,the dark tower will lead him to share the fate of his father,that means that the third overlord was truly evil(not possible with the elves alive and evernight forest recovering,and Rose didn't want 'chaos'),and the Demon Statues in the Wasteland,only available only if the player chose Velvet,same with the Greater Fang Top Upgrade,Gnarl could have confused the true mother since Rose remained in the Dark Tower for a while(or he lied for unknown reasons),and Rose,despising her sister,and in revenge of the Overlord killing her 'father' and dumping her,she is suspected to have kidnapped the newborn overlord from Velvet and the Minions to ensure the fall of the Overlord Empire,and later helped Florian getting into the Dark Tower,causing much chaos by make him destroy the Tower Heart and causing in this way the great cataclysm,and later being a key figure in Florian's empire as leader of the Sentinels


  • "Your little creatures are just darlings aren't they. I'm Rose." — First encounter with Rose at Castle Spree.
  • "I thought you were just the usual run-of-the-mill dungeon fodder, but you've surprised me! I think someone like you could use someone like me. Let's go!" — Rose takes charge right from the start.
  • "I'd better get up there, wouldn't want those little dears eating my things and getting a tummy ache." — Private Quarters have been set up at the Dark Tower, and Rose's luggage has been brought up.
  • "Those little Cherubs of yours, they're precious aren't they?" — Small talk in the Private Quarters.
  • "And I thought you had a brain somewhere beneath that armor!" — Rose is undignified about getting dumped for Velvet.
  • 'I'm going to help my father bringing order to the world'  if Rose was dumped,she will say this when you approach her in the Spawning Pit during the Second Overlord's return to the Dark Tower

Overlord II:

  • "I hope you don't expect me in clean this up. Men... can't destroy without getting everything all messy!" — Rose's reaction to the Overlad destroying the Devourer. She still hates disorder.
