A good natured,
passionate young woman with prodigal skills in
white magic and archery.
Rosa is a beautiful, 19-year-old girl born
of a noble family in Baron. Her father is a
highly respected dragon knight; he and her
mother maintain a large household in the city of
Baron. Rosa began learning the skill of archery
at a young age, as archery is a common military
discipline for young noble women in Baron. As a
young girl, Rosa met a boy named Cain, since
both had fathers in the dragon knight's
squadron. Cain and Rosa soon became friends because of this. Rosa
also met one of
Cain's close friends, Cecil Harvey, who lived in
the castle along with Cain. While they all grew
up together, Rosa grew very close to Cecil who
a knight in training at the military academy.
During this time the Society of White Magic
was established in Baron for the support of the
land and air troops. Rosa found this to be
fortuitous for she knew after Cecil had
graduated from the Military Academy he would
soon be assigned to duty with the army. Rosa
realized by now that she had fallen in love with
Cecil so, in order to be with him she would
needed to find a way to be involved in military
operations. Though she was skilled with the bow,
noble girls learned the skill to be able to
defend the realm, not fight on the front lines.
Rosa's mind, if she became a white mage she
could be with Cecil, because white mages
participate in battles to help fallen soldiers.
Therefore, even in battle she would be able to protect
Cecil, but more importantly be near him. After
joining the society she found she had the innate
talents of a cleric and soon became a prodigy
within the society and even began teaching
Rosa's relationship with Cecil soon became a problem because of
her status. It was quite obvious that she was
positioning herself to be as near to Cecil as
possible, making clear her feelings. This was
unacceptable for as a
daughter of a noble family, Rosa's parents...as
well as the socialites in the courts of Baron...looked down upon her infatuation with Cecil
since he was not a noble, and furthermore seen
as a bastard child of a commoner not fit to be
the squire of the King. This was because, at
this time most marriages were arranged between
families, and nobles almost exclusively made
unions with other noble families...if not from
the same country then from others such as
Damcyan or Troia. Further complicating the
situation was that Cecil had recently become a
dark knight, though this made him
highly respected for his military skills, but
also feared precisely for those skills. Dark Knights must master the same dark Mana that
black mages learn to control, only an even
darker form of the power that even master
sorcerers from Mysidia fear.
complications, Rosa's feelings would not be
denied...even if it meant disobeying her parents.
Probably the most prevalent reason for this was
that, by wielding the power of dark Mana through his body,
Cecil is beginning to taint his soul with the
power of darkness, which could rob him of his
compassion for the lives of others. It seems
Rosa could sense the conflict within Cecil, and
her skills with white magic - and her love -
have helped Cecil cope with this deepening pain.
This mutual need and want for each other has
immensely strengthened the bond between them.
Overall, Rosa can be defined as a very strong willed and compassionate human
being. This is further exemplified by the fact
that she defies her parent's wishes and
continues to see Cecil in secret (which has
led to some unfortunate tawdry rumors to be
well). Nevertheless Rosa's feelings for Cecil
are so strong that she follows after him when it
is learned that he has gone missing after the
mission to Mist Cave. She follows him into peril
and danger just to be near him. Her love for
Cecil means that she becomes a very strong
companion when she joins Cecil's mission and
will be there for him and and all her friends in times
About White Mages of Baron
Magic users, skilled in
the holy arts of healing and protection.
The primary purpose of a
White Mages (or Clerics in general) is to heal those
afflicted with illness or wounded in battle - to
Thus the advantages of having White Mages in a
military nation such as Baron were self-evident.
Upon the completion of the “Devil Road” (thus
named from the effect of the stamina it drains
from those who use it) between Baron and the
mystic nation of Mysidia, people skilled in
using and training others at White and Black
magic became available. Originally the Baron
military looked down on the employment of Black
Mages...or any magic users for that matter,
since physical fighting skills were highly
prized and respected among the military elite.
However, both Black and White mages have been
incorporated into the Baron military
organization. Though their role is limited,
White Mages serve as a kind of "rescue crew" for
soldiers in battle, and Black Mages help to
bolster the troops in large campaign strategies.
Information About Archery
Bows are a common,
light-weight weapon, with a demanding level of
skill and accuracy.
Archery is a common military
profession of men, and notably of young noble
women in Baron. The bow and arrows are important
because they are the only weapon that can be
handled and used to hit targets at a long range.
The effectiveness of the weapon is limited in
the hands of a novice, however trained archers
can aim and hit targets accurately at long
range. Especially important is the bow the
archer chooses and the arrows he or she shoots.
There are many different types of arrows, each
crafted to create a specific effect when they
hit a target.
