Character: Sister Rosette Christopher
Series: Chrno Crusade (Chrono Crusade in America)
Version: Manga (between volumes 2 and 3)
Age: 16
Gender: Female
Sexuality: Straight, but isn’t really looking for a relationship at the moment.

Appearance: Rosette has shoulder-length blonde hair, bright blue eyes, and the appearance of an everyday sixteen-year-old girl. The only thing that about her that differs from that generalization is the fact that she is a bit more fit than most girls her age – years of training to fight demons will do that to you. She wears the uniform of the Magdalene Order, a Protestant order of demon-slayers prevalent throughout the United States. This outfit consists of a blue dress, matching blue habit, and green double hip holster for her pair of Colt .45 guns.

Personality: In every animal personality test, she is very much a lion. She is outgoing, generally optimistic, and almost unreasonably tenacious. She also harbors quite a bit of aggression – she’d rather fight than talk something out. Because of this, she tends to be more than a bit reckless, preferring to rely on sheer luck and tenacity instead of strategy and planning. She will do anything to protect those she cares about. On the other hand, she can be very insecure, and no matter how much she may argue, she often relies upon the wiser judgment of her partner Chrno.

Abilities/Weaponry: Physical abilities are that of any sixteen-year-old human girl. Her equipment is comprised of two Colt .45 guns modified with small grappling hooks below the barrel, four clips of Sacreds, one clip of Gospels, three vials of holy water, and a holy seal that acts as a force field.
A Sacred is a bullet filled with holy water instead of explosive charge.
A Gospel is a bullet formed of alchemically enhanced steel. The holy energy is sealed into the bullet at the base level, making it exponentially more powerful than the Sacred.

Weaknesses: Rosette tends to rush into situations without thinking, relying on her bullheadedness, luck, and the strength of her frontal assault to get her through things (instead of turning to strategy, planning, and skill). As mentioned above, she can be rather insecure and relies on her partner. Not having him in Paixao with her may affect the way she reacts to adverse situations.
On the more physical side, her ammunition supply is limited and she currently has no way of obtaining more.

History: Rosette and her younger brother Joshua were orphaned at young ages (eight and seven, respectively) and sent to live at the Seventh Bell orphanage in Michigan. There, Joshua’s illness (a disease of mysterious cause that he has had all his life with symptoms similar to a horrible bout of the flu) worsened, while his healing powers strengthened. Because of his illness, and because he is the only family Rosette has left, she was always protective, to the point of being overprotective, of him. That was why, when the Magdalene Order heard of his powers nearly four years later, she would take him out to the surrounding woods or lake whenever they came to visit – she knew that, given the chance, the Order would take her brother with them and would in all likelihood leave her behind at the orphanage.

It was during one of these “escapes” that both Rosette and Joshua fell through a loosened patch of forest earth and landed in what looked to be an underground mausoleum. Looking for a way out, they came across a pair of stone doors, behind which lay a coffin and a child-sized demon who introduced himself as Chrno. Rosette’s kind heart and outgoing personality soon made him the friend of both her and Joshua.

Unfortunately, the happy summer days they spent together were not to last. Joshua made the decision to join the Order on his own, sending Rosette running down into the forest to meet Chrno with nothing but a lantern and her own fears and doubts. Instead of the reassurance she was seeking, the situation simply turned worse. One of Chrno’s old partners in crime, Aion, turned up with a proposition for him: If Chrno would join Aion once again, Aion would give Chrno back the horns (the very source of a demon’s power) he had taken from him fifty-four years before. Chrno flatly turned him down, choosing the life had then to the life he’d had before.

Aion simply shrugged off the refusal and turned to his backup plan: he gave the horns to Joshua instead. Joshua, whose sickness had recently taken a turn for the worse, was coerced with promises of strength to combat the weakness he’d experienced all his life. Unfortunately, the human mind is not equipped to handle the influx of power that comes with demonic horns, and Joshua was no exception. He lost what little control he had and, in front of Rosette and Chrno, released the latent power of the horns: the power to freeze time. As the epicenter of the power, Joshua was spared and later taken away by Aion. Only through Chrno’s efforts were he and Rosette saved from the effects of the blast. Chrno then explained to Rosette the power of a demon’s horns and through Rosette’s insistence, made a contract with her. When the seal of the contract (in the shape of a pocket watch) was released, Chrno would be able to draw power directly from Rosette’s soul. The obvious drawback to this is that Rosette’s life would be shortened in direct proportion to how much power Chrno used.

Rosette and Chrno were then taken in by the Order, she as a Sister and he as her partner and a special case. They have spent the last four years learning to fight demons and to work together, all in preparation to hunt down Aion and get Joshua back.
They had only just received permission to do so when Rosette suddenly arrived in Paixao.

Since Arrival in Paixao: Rosette has had a terrible time of it since arriving in the fair city of Paixao. She met Sora, Riku, and Kairi within hours of arrival, and soon after watched Sora disappear. That evening, she managed to find Chrno in the city and meet with him, but the reunion was cut short when Luxord, a member of Organization XIII, arrived and kidnapped her.

What followed was, for Rosette, a week of hell. She and seven other people were subjected to the Organization's experiments on light, darkness, and the nature of the heart. After a week of having her mind broken and being subject to injections, she was unceremoniously dumped in the middle of the street in the city, unable to move or even feel her body. She was found by Kit Fisto, who managed to contact the Doctor and Chrno. They arrived and opened the seal on the pocket watch, releasing the darkness from Rosette. She has since spent time in the local Actua Are with Chrno resting and trying to recover, and is only just now beginning to find out about the Resistance against the Organization.
