Scorpio Rose's most potent power is her access to gypsy magic. The limits on this magical power decrease as she gets older.
Rose suffers from a curse that prevents her from dying of old age. She can be killed through other means, but she will never succumb to the passage of time and has been alive now for over four centuries.
As a gypsy, Rose suffers from the prejudice of the population. Being a wanderer means she has no place or country to call her own, and is viewed with suspicion by every other civilization. Others are often swift to judge her and her magic without giving her a fair chance.
Because of the circumstances of her life, Rose will always watch the few friends she does make grow old, wither, and die while she herself remains young. This has caused Rose to turn off most of her emotions as a defense mechanism. The likes of love, laughter and tears are not felt by her save on only the rarest of occasions.
Rose's ordinary life was that of a typical young woman growing up in the early 17th century. In 1610, when she was sixteen years old, all of that came to an abrupt end. A demon who had taken the form of a handsome man, raped her and left her for dead.
But Rose did not die. Instead, the fires of hell served only to cauterize the wound and fed her considerable magical power. Her body remained that of a sixteen-year old, but her soul grew with strength and knowledge. She now devotes her nomadic existence to seeking out the evil that walks the planet in all forms and bringing about its destruction.
Scorpio Rose was created by Steve Englehart.
