Rosaura was cloistered in a covenant after her parents' death, but it was only a temporary refuge from her brother's cruelty. Baldesar recalled her to Rome and put her through one harrowing ordeal after another, defeating her over and over again before offering her the salvation of the Embrace.
Baldesar sought to impress his power of life and death over Rosaura, but the Embrace had the opposite effect. The ghosts of the dead whispered to Rosaura in the few brief moments that she hung between life and death; a sense of purpose and calm arose in her. That's when Rosaura smiled, knowing that her brother no longer controlled her destiny.
Rosaura is a small, birdlike woman who wears her brown hair short and unadorned. Her clothes are similarly plain; she wears a conservative gray dress. Her only affectation is a small golden crucifix. Rosaura's eyes are black and moist, like orbs of onyx suspended in oil. She moves with modest, precise gestures. There is somewhat ethereal quality to her, as though a strong gust of wind could blow her away. She has a soft, shy voice - when she speaks at all.
