The Legend of Dragoon Wiki
She is a beautiful warrior with a sharp tongue and a deadly sword. She will teach Dart much about the art of Dragoon warfare and fights beside him in many battles. There is a well-guarded mystique about her.

-The manual

Rose (ロゼ, Roze) is a playable character in The Legend of Dragoon. She is a mysterious travelling warrior who saves Dart at the beginning of his adventure, and later joins the party as she is the first to recognize that Dart wears an inactive Dragoon Spirit.

Character Design[]

Rose has a long black hair with long fringes in each sides, pale skin and charcoal gray eyes. She wears a dark blue dragon circlet with horns in each sides.

Her usual outfit is a dark blue high-neck long sleeved armor short dress with gold accents and a matching boots with gold accents in different sides as the right boot appears as thigh-high and her left boot is short. She also wears a matching gloves with gold accents and wields the rapier.

As a Dragoon, her appearance remain unchanged during the events of the Dragon Campaign.

She wears a dark blue Dragoon armor with red accents along with a matching long dark blue greaves and a red gem in the center, black tights and a matching knee-high dark blue Dragoon armor boots with a red gem at the center. She also wears a matching gauntlets while the rapier she wields becomes a Dragoon Rapier in a black motif. Her Dragoon wings are pale green and dark blue with red outlines.


Rose is often serious, harsh and cold, but becomes kinder throughout the game. Her knowledge about the Dragoons and the Dragon Campaign make her a good mentor for the team.


Abilities and Attributes[]

Rose is a character with above average physical and good magical offense, as well as mostly average stats otherwise and rather low HP. Rose has a notoriously strong early game when she joins on CD 1, surpassing the other party members in terms of physical attack and being approximately on par with Lavitz in physical defense, as well as boasting unrivaled magical attributes at the time, most notably an outstanding magical attack which allows her to use magical attack items to their best potential. This solidifies her as a very competent offensive character, to which a slightly above average speed of 55 adds.

While her HP are fairly low and make her quite frail in comparison to Lavitz and Dart, in the early game she will still be more durable than Shana who tends to be under-leveled during the entirety of CD 1 due to missing out on the Defense of Hoax and Shirley’s Shrine.

As the game progresses and other characters gain experience and skill, Rose’s actual strengths and weaknesses relative to the rest of the cast become more apparent. Having the second lowest HP of the group and only average physical and magical defense, she has a remarkably low survivability in battles. However, both her magical and physical offensive prowess stays useful throughout the game, which is aided by being the second character in the party to have the potential to unlock a final addition after Lavitz and Albert, having only three additions to master before. Said final addition, Demon’s Dance, also has the third highest damage multiplier of all additions in the game (just a single percent below Haschel's Omni-Sweep). Her physical attacking strength is brought to the extremes in the endgame, where she receives the Dragon Buster for the final boss fight.

Rose has a useful Dragoon form too, although two of its magical spells are largely situational. Astral Drain, arguably her best spell, is a 50% damage (incorrectly described as 25% in the game) single-target dark magic, costs only 10 MP and is available from the beginning, while Death Dimension and Demon’s Gate tend to be only useful in regular encounters (with the rare exception of minion enemies in boss fights).

Rose’s arguably biggest drawback is that while having noteworthy strengths, other characters tend to surpass her later in the game. While she stays an offensively strong character, other members of the cast eventually still surpass her, such as Albert and Haschel in their physical damaging potential, as well as Shana and Meru in terms of magic. Overall, Rose has a tremendous early game, but from approximately CD 2 onwards, she can be described more as a glass cannon, still boasting high magical and physical attack, but being quite frail due to her low HP and mediocre defense.


Rose's weapon of choice are one-handed swords, rapiers and daggers.

The Legend of Dragoon- Rose- Black Dragoon Form

Rose's Dark Dragoon form.


Acquiring the Dragoon Spirit[]

Rose is already a Dragoon when she joins the party, having held her Dragoon Spirit since the Dragon Campaign.

Dragoon Transformation[]

To transform into her Dragoon form, Rose crosses her arms while being embedded in lightning as it flashes in white. Her Dragoon form is formed while being covered in a dark shadowed sphere as it disappears before she reveals herself and striking her pose.

Dragoon Magic[]

Main article: Dragoon Magic

Her magical abilities also deal Dark damage, and have varying effects. Her magical abilities are as follows:

Name Dragoon Level MP Target Effect
Astral Drain Initial 10 Single enemy Dark 50% and HP recovery*
Death Dimension 2 20 All enemies Dark 25% and Fear
Demon's Gate 3 30 All enemies Instant kill (No effect on bosses)
Dark Dragon 5 80 Single enemy Dark 100%

*The in-game description erroneously says 25%. The HP is equally distributed among the group, however, should a group member reach max HP due to this, the surplus HP is distributed to the other members.

WARNING: Sections contains spoilers.

Rose is first seen as a travelling warrior who saves Dart from the dragon Feyrbrand at the beginning of the game. She joins the party after the battle of Hoax, where she awakens the Dragoon forces in Dart's dragoon spirit, which he inherited from his father.

The reality of her situation becomes apparent later in the game, when it is revealed that she was one of the original Dragoons who fought in the Dragon Campaign and was apparently the only survivor having watched all her friends who were also Dragoons die in battle, either giving up their lives heroically or being killed by the weapons of the enemy. Since then she has remained immortal, by wearing a magical choker, in order to prevent the end of the world by destroying the Moon Child.

As part of her task, she was not only required to kill the Moon Child, but also any who laid eyes on her, as they would become thralls to the Moon Child later in life. To this end, she burned entire villages, killing any and all she could find and tales of survivors of her battles to stop the God of Destruction soon became the legend of the Black Monster. She was directly responsible for the destruction of Neet and possibly (although it could easily have been Melbu Frahma) the death of Dart's mother and Haschel's daughter, Claire. Her assassination of Shana's sister Princess Louvia and the crew of the ship bearing the Princess' name turned it into a doomed ghost ship.

Chapter 1: The Serdian War[]

The Return home[]

Rose's mystery and prowess are seen at the beginning of the game, long before she joins the party. Atop a cliff, she stands watch, presumably already aware of the advance of the Sandoran army and the dragon, Feyrbrand. Spying the beast far off, towering over the trees, she leaps down to close the distance between. Feyrbrand is running amok, threatening Sandoran soldiers and their enemies alike. A young blonde man in red armor is attacked by Feyrbrand. In a feat of strength and agility, Rose sweeps him to safety. The man thanks her and leaves. Her dragoon spirit begins to glow as, after 1,000 years, it resonates in harmony with another Spirit. Rose thinks of the man in red Armor. "It couldn't be, could it?"

Power Revealed[]

She later reappears in Hoax as she flies in as a powerful being telling Dart to use his dragoon spirit. Dart uses it and he becomes the Red-Eye Dragoon. She shows Dart he isn't the only one, she is the Dark Dragoon. Dart later mentions the Black Monster and in her head she says "How does he know about that?"

Death of a Dragon[]

They march off into their journey to Villude Volcano, where she tells the group that the ancient fossil belongs to a race once called Virage. After Shana goes through something weird the group thinks something is wrong with her. Rose and company go through the Nest of the Dragon. They fight Greham and Feybrand. She is surprised that Greham is using the Jade Dragoon spirit. He is killed and the spirit gets passed onto Lavitz who becomes the new master of the Jade Dragon. They head off to Lohan because Shana falls sick.

A Cure for Shana[]

They then go to Shrine of Shirley to look for a legendary Dragoni Plant to heal Shana. They don't find one but Rose and company meet Shirley, Shirley happens to recognize Rose. After a series of questions she gives them the White Silver Dragoon spirit. They go back to Lohan and give it to Shana who becomes the new master of the White Silver Dragon. They go to the little festival and watch Dart fight in the competition. They find out King Albert has been kidnapped so they go to Hellena Prison to save him. Rose watches as the Man in the Hood takes out an ancient, legendary weapon known to her as the Dragon Buster just as Lavitz turns into a dragoon and attacks him. Rose shouts out to Lavitz but he has already decided to attack. Lavitz is killed when the Man in Hood impales him through the chest, and the hood fall off, revealing the man to be Lloyd. He takes off in the direction of Kazas.

The group in Seles then decides to go to Kazas to end this pointless war. They go through a secret pathway and they head into the castle. They fight Kongol and as he asks them to kill him. Rose is about to but Shana and Dart stop her. They then head in and fight Emperor Doel, who carries the Violet Dragoon spirit. They fatally wound him. He tells the group that Lloyd is heading to the land of Tiberoa. The Violet Dragoon spirit chooses Hachel as its new master with no surprise to Rose as she thinks that anyone along in their journey will eventually become a dragoon. So the group heads to Tiberoa.

Chapter 2: The Platinum Shadow[]

Chapter 4: Fate and Soul[]

Rose's Choker[]

Rose's Choker is a necklace that was bestowed unto the darkness dragoon Rose by Charle Frahma, Melbu's sister, 11,000 years ago after the Dragon Campaign. This choker holds the power to freeze time for the wearer suspending aging, it also has the ability to lead the way to Ulara the last surviving Wingly city. It can grant the wearer or those around them the ability to see Ulara, hidden with Wingly magic amongst the dunes of the Death Frontier. Caron, the Wingly who greets Rose and Dart at the entrance to Ulara, says that Rose has begun to "regain a sense of time"; evidently the loss was one of the effects of the choker and its magic. Perhaps it was not an unintended side effect, either: better perhaps for someone who had to kill innocents and then wait 108 years before killing them again, that they forgot the passage of time.

Rose was granted this necklace and eternal youth for the sole purpose of stopping and killing the Moon Child every 108 years and those around it to prevent the birth of Virage Embryo, the God of Destruction. This choker appears to have perished alongside Rose and Zieg with the destruction of the Moon That Never Sets.


Dark Bird Alights

The bird with the dark feathers aligning next to the bird with red feathers on remains of the Divine Tree in the ending.

After the destruction of the Moon That Never Sets, Rose and Zieg died in the explosion along with Melbu Frahma. However in the FMV, a seagull is shown flying all over Endiness starting from Rouge then goes to Deningrad, Fletz, Bale and finally Seles. If watched carefully, the seagull has a blackish-purple stripe on it's tail, the same color with the Darkness Dragoon. And in the final FMV after the credits, another seagull is sitting on the dead branch of the Divine Tree. The second seagull has a red stripe on it's tail, considering the color it's strongly possible that the red tailed seagull is Zieg while the other one is Rose. Which means her spirit lives on in the seagull, and the place she visited before means that she still remembered about her friends and wanted to visit them once more to see what they are doing now at peace time. After that, Zieg and Rose are finally reunited, as their spirits live on in the form of a seagull.



  • If left idle while on the Queen Fury, Rose will wrap her arms around her chest and stand perfectly straight and still.
  • When you have control of her in Neet, she will not perform an idle pose no matter how long you wait.
  • When defending, Rose holds her rapier diagonally in front of her body.
  • When dispirited, Rose slouches forward with her head down while standing and lazily holds her rapier, having lost the will to hold it up.
  • When in Critical Health, Rose kneels down and slouches forward.
  • In the Japanese manual's credits, Rose is credited as "Ros'e".[1] This may have been done due to a lack of font handling for accented characters. An apostrophe technically works because of it representing a glottal stop, which would mean a final letter would be pronounced rather than silent. However, an appropriately accented character would make it "Rosé" more in line with Western typography and as a real word often in reference to a rosé wine as a pink rather than strictly red or white wine.
