Roselia appears as a young girl with blonde hair long enough to touch the floor and an archaic way of speaking. She is the Holy Beast sworn to protect the Ark Rouge, titled the Burning Sphinx (《翼ある灼獣》ローゼリア).
The name 'Roselia' originally belonged to the Holy Beast that fused with the elder of the Kinship of the Blaze (Hexen Clan) in order to handle the Great Collapse. The current Roselia is the second iteration; she was originally a familiar in a position similar to Celine's and after the first Roselia was betrayed by the Gnomes and perished in S.306,[Note 2] she followed her predecessor's instructions to visit the Luna Sanctuary to inherit her predecessor's memories and mission.
Roselia collaborated with Emperor Hector Reise Arnor I to defeat the Dark Dragon. Together with the head of the Gnomes, they sealed the Hector's Deus-Excellion Testa-Rossa in the depths underneath Valflame Palace.

The next record of Roselia's activities are dated S.942, when Roselia guides Lianne Sandlot through the trial to become the Awakener of Argreion, the Silver Deus-Excellion, at Lohengrin Castle. Ten years later, she guides Dreichels Reise Arnor through the trial to become the Awakener of Valimar, the Ashen Deus-Excellion, near Trista.[Note 3] Lianne Sandlot succumbs to mortal wounds during the conclusive battle with the Vermillion Apocalypse. Roselia took Lianne's corpse with her back to Elin, leaving behind only rumors regarding the disappearance of Lianne's corpse. Half a year later, Lianne revives before Roselia's eyes and leaves Elin to wander through the world.

Around S.1000,[Note 4] Roselia collaborated with the Septian Church to eradicate the rampaging vampires in Heimdallr. The last remaining True Ancestor of the race herself, Roselia defeated the Elder Vampires single-handedly and ended her own bloodline of vampirism. The novel, Red Moon Rose, is based on these events.
Although Roselia stayed on good terms with Lianne Sandlot for centuries until S.1186, when the latter met the Grandmaster of Ouroboros and decided to cut ties with Roselia. They would not meet again until twenty years later.
Sometime around S.1203, Roselia ran into Ragnard, the Holy Beast sworn to protect the Aureole. Ragnard had been dismissed of his contract, so it is likely that the two simply had a casual conversation.
The two other witches in the series, Vita Clotilde and Emma Millstein, were both trained by Roselia. Vita lost her parents at a young age. She displayed great affinity for magic and Roselia adopted her as one of her disciples. Vita's talents make her Roselia's greatest disciple to date. Emma lost her mother in an unfortunate accident and was raised by Roselia instead.
Roselia also created them their familiars: Grianos for Vita, and Celine for Emma. Creating them drained a considerable amount of her life force, so she appears to others as a seemingly young girl. In areas with high spiritual energy, Roselia is able to harness it to temporarily return to her adult form. Vita eventually joined Ouroboros following an unknown incident, while Roselia sent Emma to Thors Military Academy to test Rean Schwarzer, who would be Valimar's Awakener.
With the turbulent times in Erebonia of S.1206, Roselia decided to make an appearance before the protagonists and team up once again with the Septian Church, this time with Dominion Thomas Lysander. As the elder of the Hexen Clan, Roselia is tasked with the safekeeping of the Ark Rouge, the Sept-Terrion of Blaze.
When the Great Twilight began, Roselia assisted in the group's escape by teleporting both new and old Class VII to Eryn.
After the Great War concluded, Roselia confirmed that the two Sept-Terrions and the Divine Knights had left Zemuria. Sometime around March S.1207, the veins began to act up once more, causing spirit paths to reopen once more. Unsure as to what was causing the calamity, Roselia also made contact with Zeit, who similarly to Ragnard, had been dismissed of his duties as a Holy Beast.
