Rose is a character first introduced in "Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield". Being the president of the Galarian mega-corperation Macro Cosmos, as well as serving as current chairman of the Galarian Pokemon League, he was tasked with managing the Gyms, challengers, and attendees, as well as being a visionary behind the creation of Dynamax Bands.
After losing his father in a mining accident in some canons, Rose was traumatized into believing that Galar needed a new energy source better than coal, electricity, wind, or water and they needed it fast, despite the current energy source still having 1,000 years left of life. This inspired him to capture the legendary Pokémon Eternatus, and summon it to restart an ancient devastating event called The Darkest Day, in the hopes of harnessing the power generated from it to power the Galar region and the entire world for centuries to come.
His miscalculations caused Eternatus to get free and go beserk, and it required the use of Dande and the player, Victor
, to capture it and end The Darkest Day. After this, he would turn himself in. Leon would take his Chairman position after the events and losing his champion title
Rose is a cold, calculating, and manipulative man, having used Bede
as a grunt for his bidding, but immediately airing him out to dry after Bede was caught, manipulating Oleana
's feelings and using her talents when no one else would, and making the region think he was a chill dude. However, he was an honest worker at the same time, having worked in the coal mines just like his father did prior to his success. After becoming a child prodigy, his younger brother, Peony
, would defect from the family, and Rose would scrub all mention of him from available records when it came to his biography. This strain in relationship caused Peony to step down from being the Galarian champion not long after Rose became Chairman. Due to this family relation, Rose is the uncle of both Peonia
