Rose is a minor but important character in Dragon Quest IV.



Rose has long pink hair and pointed ears. She wears a lavender dress with a red ribbon, a golden hairband and a golden bracelet.


Dragon Quest IV[]

As an elf, she had the rare gift of shedding ruby tears and thus, she faced constant harassment from humans who wanted to add to their wealth. Ironically, as the magical rubies were filled with Rose's most powerful inner desires, as soon as the gems touched their hands they shattered, so all their work and misdeeds in kidnapping and beating Rose were for nothing after all.

Psaro, a prominent demon, met and fell in love with Rose after rescuing her from such an attack, and sought to protect her. To this end, after naming her "Rose" in honor of his cherished hometown of Rosehill, he took her to said village and built in it a small fortress for her far away from human grasp, installing a powerful watchman dubbed Sir Roseguardin (first name Percival) to keep her safe in his absence, as well as cleverly hiding the passage for her chambers behind the use of a Flute of Revelation. Psaro paid frequent visits to Rosehill in order to see Rose; he told her of his plans to destroy humanity to free the world for demons, and continued on with righteousness in spite of her pleas to stop and try for coexistence. His plans went against her kind and compassionate nature, but she could see the good in Psaro and still hoped he might ultimately be dissuaded.

Before this ever had a chance of happening, Aamon secretly had Rose murdered, so that Psaro would be driven mad by her death and use the Secret of Evolution on himself. This would allow Aamon, his closest retainer, to steal the secret for himself and become the new master of monsterkind.


In the remake of Dragon Quest IV, there is an additional chapter, in which the party of the Chosen used the Yggdrasil flower to revive Rose from death. Deciding to bravely follow them during their confrontation with her lover, upon seeing the transformed Psaro, Rose's desire filled ruby tears reversed the effects of the Secret of Evolution, and after informing Psaro of the true mastermind behind her death, he decided to finally abbandon his previous plans of eradication and joined the Chosen to take down Aamon once and for all. With the world at peace, the two were free start their lives together in the newfound peace, quietly retiting.
