| Rosa Ushiromiya|
|Name|| Rosa Ushiromiya|
|First Appearance||Legend of the Golden Witch|
|Voiced By||Ami Koshimizu|
Rosa Ushiromiya (右代宮 楼座 Ushiromiya Rōza ) is Kinzo Ushiromiya's fourth and youngest child. She is ranked the fifth of all family members. As the youngest Ushiromiya child, she has very little say at the family meetings.
Rosa only has one child, Maria. Before her birth, Maria's father abandoned them.
Rosa is in charge of a company called Anti-Rosa, which designs western-styled clothing. Lately, the company has floundered, and Rosa seeks Kinzo's money to pay off her co-endorsers. She works extremely hard, and as a result, Maria is often left home alone.
At some point, Maria supposed that the truth of the matter behind her mother's long hours; is because Rosa often secretly went on small vacations to lavish locations with her supposed boyfriend. However, that was in fact never true.
Rosa had been working long hours, hoping to earn enough money in order to repay the debt that she owed to her absent husband, in the hopes that he would finally come back and be a proper father for Maria...
The hotel receipt that Maria had once discovered, was from a meeting that Rosa had with Rudolf and Eva on the topic of what they could do to make Krauss share the inheritence, the only reason Rosa didn't take Maria along ( despite Rudolf suggesting that she did) was because she hated talking about the gold in front of Maria, not wanting to drag her daughter into something that only concerned the siblings themselves.
Rosa suffers from moodswings, and sometimes abuses her daughter, because of the childish way she acts, especially if Maria is acting particularly difficult or when Maria acts extremely creepy.
Rosa is actually terrified by Maria overly expressing her belief in the occult, as well as mentioning the name of a certain witch whom Rosa had convinced herself that she was to blame for the witch's death years ago.
Usually, after slapping her daughter, Rosa will feel guilty and reconcile with Maria, often who remarks that she is glad her mother is not controlled by 'the black witch'.

Rosa has sandy brown hair with a hime cut. Her hair falls just below her shoulders, and her bangs end somewhere at her chin. Her eyes were originally black, but were changed to light brown for the anime and PS3 adaption. She has fair skin and appears to be somewhat more flat-chested than other women.
She wears a long, black, country-styled gown, combined with what appears to be a long red skirt and a white dress shirt. Her casual attire is a blue vest over a white, long-sleeved shirt with a matching blue skirt. When she was young, she wore a checkered red-and-black skirt and wore her hair in ponytails. She wore a blue vest over a white, long-sleeved shirt.
Role in the GamesEdit
In Legend of the Golden Witch Rosa is killed on the first twilight with her head smashed in, so that was impossible to recognize,despite the clothes. Earlier, she gets into a fight with Maria over Maria's rose in the rose garden which leads to Beatrice's first letter appearing. Rosa is killed as the sacrifice chosen by the key for Beatrice's revival, as depicted on Kinzo's epitaph.
Her corpse was found inside
the storehouse of the rose garden.
Her face is believed to have been
damaged after her death.
Another meeting is possible.
So, no sadness.
In Turn of the Golden Witch, Rosa survives the first twilight and leads the group of survivors. In addition, she appears to be "collaborating" with Beatrice, under whose direction she lies at several key points in the story, creating a locked-room puzzle (when the door in question was never locked) and later providing an alibi for the killer. She is the gun-holder for this episode. Under the guise of mistrust of the servants, she divides the survivors several times into "Wolves" and "Sheep," isolating certain individuals that become sacrifices for the later twilights. As with Eva in the first game, her attempts to shift blame to the servants provoke a sympathetic response from Battler, dissuading him from attempting to solve the mystery. From the magical perspective, Rosa turns against Beatrice when she realizes that being the witch's accomplice is no guarantee of safety for herself and her daughter. She and Maria survive the entire ceremony but are captured and killed by the Goats while trying to escape the island, or, alternately, killed by the bomb, their attempts to escape hampered by the gold ingot Rosa insists on liberating.
She was tortured and forced by beatrice to eat a meal made of each one of the siblings: Bloody Krauss, Double Eva 's tongue seasonal's salad, Sea Bass Pie (wrapped in Rudolf 's face) and finally, Oven baked Maria with apples.
Missing. In the Golden Land, she finally
found her own treasure, more
important than the gold.
However, that was only for a brief
time. Because of a fool, she was
forced to once again lose sight of
what she had found at great pains.
Afterwards, she was torn to pieces
and eaten by the demons,
and went to hell.
After her sister, Eva solves the epitaph, Rosa also solves it and arrives seconds too late. She congratulates her sister on finding the gold and Eva asks her to keep it a secret. Seconds later in a magic perspective, Beatrice "coincidentally" appears to Eva and acknowledges her victory. Later Rosa is sacrificed again, ironically (in the magical perspective) by her own witch-transformed sister Eva-Beatrice. She is brutally tortured with some bizarre magic along with her daughter, Maria, before finally being killed by Beatrice who ended her torment by piercing her head onto the spear-shaped part of the fence.
Died in the rose garden, her medulla oblongata
was pierced by a spear-shaped part of the fence.
If Maria hadn't been killed by
another person, you might suspect
that Rosa died in an accident.
She was the sacrifice for the birth of the new witch.
Rosa was sacrificed once again by her own father, Kinzo. While she tries to get a grip on her situation, Siesta 00 killed her by piercing her golden arrow through Rosa, baring all her flesh to the floor. In the anime, her throat is slashed open.
In the 1998 scenes, Ange, through reading Maria's diary, learns of Rosa's complex relationship with her, showing her creation and destruction of Sakutaro, and her ongoing cycles of affection and neglect/abuse. After her death, Rosa awakens in the meta-world, where she is repeatedly killed and revived by Maria and Beatrice for her past abuse and destruction of Sakutaro, ultimately screaming that she has hated Maria since the day she was born.
Her body was found in
the dining hall.
Her head was half destroyed.
It is probably appropriate to think that she was murdered with
something like a powerful gun.
However, the witnesses don't believe
that she was killed with a gun...
Her body was discovered in the cousins' room on the second floor of the guesthouse.
The direct cause of death is unknown,
but her neck was slashed open by a sharp knife.
The wound is very deep,
so anyone can easily see that she definitely died.
Her body was found in the parlor.
Erika didn't perform a detailed examination.
Her neck was completely severed by a blade.
Perfect kind of corpse. Impossible to be mistaken on an autopsy and being perfectly capable of being identified.
She was killed by Kyrie by a shot to her head.
Was killed on the First Twilight
- Umineko fans ironically dubbed her "Best Mom Ever", or "Mother of the Year", due to her cruel treatment of Maria.
- Rosa's escape attempt during the second game earned her the fan nickname "Musou Rosa" because of her strength to face dozens of goat servants (and the similarities to the Sangoku Musou/Dynasty Warriors game series this brings to mind). A flash titled "Rosa Musou" was made based on the scene and, in the expansion of the spin-off fighting game, "Ougon Musou Kyoku", one of her super moves is the 4-hit Goat Killer combo that starts her now famous scene in the visual novel.
- Upon reading the witches' record for each game, Rosa is shown to have the worst luck, especially when the torture she suffered at the hands of Maria, Eva-Beatrice, and Beatrice (during the second game) are taken into account.
- On many accounts Rosa plays a vital role as an accomplice in the 2nd game while on a few she is believed to be Beatrice. Believers in this theory base this on the similar appearance and vital scenes. They claim she planned the murders in an attempt to revive the 2nd Beatrice whose life she thought she was responsible for cutting short. Under this theory in which she is the culprit to the first four games, she maintains an accomplice whom she often betrays in the end or betrays her in the case of the 3rd game(One of the few cases where Maria suffers a violent death).
