(Rosa's model is America Ferrera.)

Rosa has creamy, sun-kissed color skin with a healthy glow to her baby-face cheeks. She is a bit on the heavy side, as she has a terrible sweet tooth.

Dark brown hair, angel-soft with a slight wave to its fullness, this teen has equally rich dark brown eyes. But as of 33.03.22, they no longer see. Rosa is blind.
PERSONALITY DESCRIPTION As sweet natured as they come, Rosa has a quick smile and a gentle disposition and is generally too soft-hearted to speak poorly of others.

Despite the emotional upheavals of her parents' and siblings' deaths, several Hatchings gone by without Impressing, a disaster of a visit to Omega and an accident that left her blind for Turns, Rosa continues to have a hard time holding a grudge. Especially with her remaining siblings who have her best interest at heart.
HOBBIES Rosa has a lovely singing voice and enjoys writing songs, but her favorite past-time is dancing. She hasn't done any of these things in many Turns, focused on her new loves - N'val and their children.
PLACE OF BIRTH Offworld - Madrid, Spain
SIBLINGS Twins: Enrique (Sr. Journeyman Dolphineer) & Issy (deceased)
Manny (Journeyman Leatherworker)
Angel (deceased
R'co (her Twin, Brown Dragonrider - deceased)
SHORT HISTORY Five years before the move to Pern, Rosa's parents perished in a Terra Forming accident and her oldest brother, in the Spanish tradition, took over the care of his siblings. Rosa and the rest of her brothers and sisters hitched a ride with the last supply run to the planet before the FSP pulled out for good.

Several years later, Rosa took a shine to the leatherworking process after spending countless hours watching her brothers work. She became fascinated with the strips of hide that could be worked into such brilliant pieces and after awhile, she started adding her own personal touches to finished orders. What else could the brothers do but start teaching her the techniques they employed to make various goods.

Like her twin brother, R'co, Rosa Stood at several Hatchings, hoping to Impress a dragon of her own, but it was not to be.

Rosa had developed a heated dislike of fellow Candidate Elenda over her treatment of their mutual friend, Murren. Something she eventually learned to overcome, while a friendship grew with Tanda when they both followed Murren to Omega to experience something new and exciting. What they got was put to work and Rosa grew sullen and detatched after their return. Unfortuanetly, an unpleasant vendetta built between she and former friend Tanda over Murren, a grudge that was plenty ugly before it ended.

Add to her own issues, Rosa had no idea that her brothers R'co and Angel were conniving to get her married off- to different boys! (F'igo and Murren.)

Nearing Turns End, Tanda and she patched up their issues, thanks to an apology from Chameleon Meeko (11.15) for her role in the rumor spreading that helped lead up to their feud.

Tanda and Rosa regained their close friendship, though she and Murren had been growing apart and F'igo no longer seemed to have an interest in the Spaniard. But Rosa moved on and through a passion for singing, she found that she and R'co's pal, V'rik, had much in common. A crush began brewing... And Rosa got that kiss.

Thread fell the next day and an accident in the workshop led to Rosa becoming blind.

After a series of grueling personal struggles, her brother Manny took her to Dawnsisters Hold where the sightless Lady Lyris opened her up and taught her what it meant to have lost the use of her sight. And though the Lady protested Rosa moving on, Manny took his sister to Alpha where Greenrider Tina had been training a canine to be her eyes.

Now she is back home, at Dawnsisters Weyr, with the rest of her family, which includes a long-lost Grandmother with a flair for the regal and dramatic.
