True Name (Spoilers)
  • Wilkis Wilk (JP: either ?????????, wikueku wiku) – “Rose is Rose”

Rose is a member of the successful merchants guild Sparrowfeathers. She is good at socializing with others and holds her own opinions, but will refuse of unreasonable things. She is a lively and cheerful person who does everything at her own pace. She values the fellow guild members who accompany her above all else and comes to accompany Sorey and his companions by a stroke of fate.

Despite having high resonance like Sorey does, she is originally unable to see the seraphim. Upon joining Sorey on his journey, Rose's ability to see the seraphim began to manifest. It seems that the reason she was originally unable to sense the seraphim is related to her past. Eventually, she is also able to Armatize with the seraphim like Sorey can.

Controversy (Spoilers)
Despite Rose’s importance in the story, she was introduced very late in the game’s promotions. The Japanese fandom, mostly, highly questioned why someone with such big a role was introduced so late. Some of the Japanese fandom took this as the need to have Fujishima’s design as a main character (over Okumura’s Alisha), escalating to a point where the fandom harassed Fujishima on Twitter about it and he had to take a break from it. In addition, Rose’s Japanese voice actress, Komatsu, performed a dogeza and apologized to the fans who attended Tales of Festival 2014, asking if it was okay to become a part of the Tales family. Those attending generally accepted the act with acceptance. (Source: staff Momo who was at the event)
