Rose is the female lead in The Legend of Dragoon. She is very beautiful, dark, mysterious, aloof, and armed with a tongue that can pierce more effectively than her rapier. Rose seems drawn to Dart and his companions and she keeps her secrets well guarded. As Lavitz points out, she seems to know too much about things nobody else knows.
Rose saves Dart from a rampaging Dragon in the beginning of the game as he rushes back to Seles. Later during a battle in the fortress town of Hoax, they meet again. Rose assists Dart in defeating the Giganto Kongol by awakening his dormant Dragoon Spirit, and afterwards shows him the ways of Dragoon combat. She joins the party for no apparent reason other than she finds them 'interesting' and that they remind her of her 'dear old friends'. Throughout the game, she grows closer to all the characters, and learns to open up a little bit when she's around them.
Late in the game, the party finds out that Rose is both a hero of the Dragon Campaign and the Black Monster, but Dart cannot continue with his quest on revenge for the death of his parents. He forgives her for what she has done because he knew it was for the greater good.
