Biography[edit | edit source]
Early life[edit | edit source]
Rose Wilson was born to Slade Wilson and Mei after a one night stand in Kansas City. Slade was married to his wife Adeline at the time so he chose not to be a part of his daughters life. However, he made sure she was well cared for, paying for her house, bills and even her mother and step-father Gary's membership at a country club. As she grew older, Rose realised she had accelerated healing, which prevented her from being hurt. After confronting her mother about her birth father's identity, she soon tracked him down. Although initially dismissive of his daughter, Slade had a change of heart and invited Rose to live with him. He gifted her a suit similar to his own Deathstroke uniform and trained her in combat. He eventually told her about her half-brother Jericho and how he was preparing her to help him takedown the people he saw as responsible for his death the Titans. He tasked her with going undercover and infiltrate the group under the pretence that he was hunting her, even making Rose sacrifice her left eye for the charade.
Meeting the Titans[edit | edit source]
While on the run, Rose stole a vehicle and was pursued by police, resulting in a police chase. She was cornered on the top of a multistory car park, where she engaged in a fight with them. Escaping, she jumped from the top of the building and crashed through another, falling into an active conference. She got up and continued on, falling unconscious on the street. Rose was rescued by Dick Grayson, who took her to Titans Tower to recuperate. When she regained consciousness, she expressed that she did not need their help, nor did she want to stay there. Promising coffee, Dick took Rose on a drive. After driving around the city in order to make sure they were not being followed, the two bid farewell, but not before a planted light-bomb started to go off in the back seat. Dick grabbed Rose and they ran to safety before the car could explode.
They returned to Titans Tower, where Rose examined her eye wound. Having learned of her identity, Dick questioned her on her father and explained that she had been intending to avenge her brother's death. That night, Rose and Rachel got properly acquainted, bonding over their bad fathers. Eventually, she and Dick sparred in the training room, giving her the opportunity to demonstrate her swordsmanship. Although she was proficient enough, Dick bested her in battle.
Following Jason's abduction, Rose was awoken by the commotion in the tower. Encountering Gar in the kitchen, she questioned him on the search for Jason. As she casually complained about the lack of good cereal available, her calm attitude angered Gar, who accused her of not caring about Jason. Rose deflected by probing Gar about his and Rachel's possible romance, further infuriating Gar. In response to Gar's anger, she claimed that Jason got himself in the said situation and that Gar's guilt should not be thrown on her. When the erstwhile Titans return from their search in the tunnels, they go off with Kory to fill her in on what's happened. In the control room, Rose impelled Gar to turn on the sound so they can eavesdrop on what is going on. When Rose learned that they are deliberating whether to turn her over to Deathstroke, she attempted to flee but was stopped by the tower's lockdown mode. First, she encountered Hank and managed to fight out from his grasp. Secondly, she met Rachel and reluctantly engaged in combat with her. This prompted Rachel's powers to emerge and injure Rose, having nearly every bone broken in her body. This left Rachel horrified. Dawn checked Rose's pulse and, to everyone's surprise, discovered that she was alive. Rose's rapid regeneration powers take effect and they tend to her. She is transported to the medical ward where she is guarded by Gar.

Personality[edit | edit source]
Rose is more of a loner, wanting to fight battles on her own a lot, even refusing a helping hand from Dick Grayson when he pulled her off the street. Even when she took the phone that was given to her, she took it just to get Dick off her back. However, Rose does have moments where she is friendlier to them, such as when she meets and immediately bonds with Rachel. Rose repeatedly demonstrates that she has a very sarcastic sense of humor, often discussing her past in a very sardonic and humorous way.
However, Rose can be very cold, such as during the kidnapping of Jason Todd, as, while everyone else was worried, she only cared about cereal.
Later, it's revealed that Rose had secretly been working as an infiltrator for her father in a twisted form of devotion and loyalty towards him. But after she begins getting closer to Jason, she begins to care for him, enough to sever ties with her father showing that there is some decency in her.
