Felix ''Lucky'' Avery
Well known to most she comes across, Felix is her fiancé and the love of her life.
The two met on a hunting trip to Annesburg and, charmed by his carefree, boyish nature, they became fast friends. Despite their stark differences, they soon became inseparable, spending almost every day together since.
Though cautious of them, Rose’s feelings developed quickly, only spurred along by the time they spent together at MacFarlane’s Ranch during the ‘Valen du Sang’ pandemic. Felix’s admission to his own feelings still managed to catch Rose off-guard, but gave her comfort in her own, and soon the two began to court - becoming ‘official’ in October of 1899.
Rose credits Felix with helping her become the person she has grown into - stronger and more confident in all areas of her life. His recklessness sparked her interest in medicine, and his contagious passion inspires her to fight for what she believes in, no matter what. She wholeheartedly believes that when they are together, they can take on anything that comes their way.
The pair got engaged in January of 1900 and are due to be married in November.
Henry & Twinkle Valentine -
Some of Rose’s first true friends, Henry and Twinkle hold a special place in her heart. The three met very early in Rose’s venture East from New Austin, and the pair helped her come out of her shell and feel like she really belonged.
Rose spent many days with them on all kinds of adventures - hikes through the mountains, wagon rides to Coulter, even venturing across the sea for the first time to see Guarma. She holds these memories close to her, thanking the pair for helping her experience so many new things and accepting her with open arms.
Henry and Twinkle’s patience and advice played a huge part in her and Felix’s budding relationship, the two of them often turning to the couple for guidance. The theme of love was ever prevalent in their friendship, Rose eventually being asked to be Twinkle’s Maid of Honour at their wedding, to which she obviously agreed.
Though the four of them see each other far less, their love and trust never dwindle and Rose has faith they will remain life-long friends.
Jean, Sam and Siku-
Rose is not quiet about her distaste for ‘’family’’ and refuses to use the label for anyone, except these three.
It began as a joke between Rose and Jean, but eventually the two of them realized they did care for one another as siblings would. Rose was soon introduced to Jean’s other sisters, Sam (now his daughter and Rose’s niece) and Siku
, and the four of them accepted one another immediately and began referring to one another and spending time as a family. Though not overly close, Rose keeps the family title for the four of them. On the surface, this is played as a novelty, but deep down Rose appreciates having them around her and it is slowly rebuilding her faith in what a family is supposed to be.
Johnny O’Connor -
Rose and Johnny’s friendship can best be described as complex. The two became friends rather slowly, building a foundation of trust and fondness over time - though Rose had her reservations in the beginning. They eventually became closer, Rose beginning to see him as some sort of brotherly figure - standing, defending and fighting alongside him when he created the 3rd generation of Krays and beyond, giving advice when she could and learning a thing or two from him along the way.
After fighting together, bleeding together, and even witnessing the death of a mutually beloved friend at each other’s side, her trust in him was deep-rooted, but the mixture of hardships, grief, opposing views and conflicting morals wound up causing a tear in their relationship. The two of them began to drift and due to many difficult situations, Rose became convinced their friendship and trust can never be fully recovered, though she still promises to have his back should he ever need her.
Johnny Cooke & Fly Wilson -
Rose knew Fly and Johnny far less than she wished to, but her desire to get closer to them was robbed from her far too early in their lives. The time she had managed to spend with them was valuable to her and she hoped they would have grown to be good friends, if given the chance. Their willingness to help her and Felix, their generosity and even kindness shown to Rose is something she will not easily forget, and their deaths are something she will not easily let go.
Rose and Felix’s shared anger towards their murderers is not exactly a hidden secret and despite many attempts from friends to dissuade them, they do not plan on ‘’forgiving and forgetting’’ anytime soon.
Evelyn Hurst & George Bennett -
Rose met Evelyn and George far before they became actual friends, but always admired them both from a distance. Always friendly towards her, she enjoyed the early moments they spent with one another - observing friendly fights or other lighthearted shenanigans.
They became close following George establishing a friendship with O’Connor and his joining of the Dapper Flats alongside Felix. Rose spent a lot of time with both of the pair, especially as the conflict with the Freemans grew. The day before Evelyn died, she and Rose had a talk about their willingness to have each other’s backs and expressed their desire to get closer as friends.
Following her murder, Rose, alongside others, vowed to help George in his hunt for the Freemans, to help him get his revenge. His descent into grief was difficult to watch but Rose remained by his side, keeping her promise and doing her best to keep him safe.
Rose and Johnny were the ones who found him mere seconds after he was shot and killed by the Freemans in Armadillo. As they carried his body out of the town to shouts of ‘’Stay free’’, Rose knew that this was something else she would not let go, not until every Freeman was dead and Georgie got his unfulfilled revenge.
