“There are forms of beauty out there we don't even have names for. Unique, precious things. If I can show people even a little more of the diversity in the world, I'll be happy. It'll mean I've helped build a world where folks accept and appreciate each other's differences.”
—Rosado to Alear

Rosado is a character from Fire Emblem Engage. He is, unofficially, one of Hortensia's retainers.


Rosado is a royal knight from Elusia who hails from a village near the Lake of Mystery. He describes it as a place of wonder where things like beauty are not restricted by "silly expectations that comes with stuff like gender." Eventually enrolling into Elusia's academy, he befriended Hortensia and Goldmary. When Hortensia was summoned by King Hyacinth, Rosado took Goldmary with him and followed him with Hortensia back to Elusia Castle. Though he was not officially made a retainer to Hortensia by King Hyacinth, Hortensia treats him and Goldmary as such.

Rosado and Goldmary accompany Hortensia on her mission to steal the Emblem Rings from the Divine Dragon Alear. They are unsuccessful when they attack Alear's forces at the Firene-Brodia border and later during the attack on Destinea Cathedral. After the revival of the Fell Dragon Sombron, Hortensia spearheads an attack on Solm on her own, leaving behind both Rosado and Goldmary. After hearing word that Hortensia joined Alear's forces, Rosado and Goldmary pose as loyal Elusian soldiers and are able to steal the Ring of the Azure Twins. The two quickly head to the Azure Coast where they reunite with Hortensia and officially join Alear's army. Though Rosado returns the ring to Alear, they allow him to utilize its power in the ensuing battle.

In the alternate universe, Rosado stayed behind so Hortensia can flee from the Corrupted. After his death, Hortensia's heart was in despair.

Rosado is cheerful, positive, and an optimist who lives his life to the fullest by pursuing all things cute and pretty. He appreciates external cuteness, but believes that cuteness starts within one's self. Having been raised in a welcoming village, Rosado is not deterred by the views of how one should be by others by things like gender norms. While confident in his cuteness and does brag about it on occasion, he enjoys seeing the "cuteness" in others and is not bothered when people shine in his presence. He actively encourages it in some who do not see it in them like with Lapis and Louis.

Rosado has a talent for the arts and is a skilled sketch artist, able to quickly sketch a cute, flattering picture of Hortensia in a short session. He particularly loves drawing landscapes which evoke strong reactions in those who gaze upon them. This passion would become the foundation of his endings in Engage, where he becomes a renowned artist.

Rosado joins at the end of the Solm arc and is the ''last'' of the royal retainers the player obtains. His overall growth rates are some of the best in the game, being both high and well-distributed, with strong HP, Dexterity, and Speed growths coupled with the tied-highest Strength growth in the entire cast. While promising excellent lategame potential, these growths are unfortunately completely let down by his base statistics, which are worse than many characters introduced much earlier than him. In particular, his starting 16 base Strength is very low for his class, level and join time, lower than many relatively tanky units such as his companion Goldmary, who herself does not have stellar Strength. Compounding this is his very poor base Build of just 8, meaning he will be weighed down by the majority of Axes and Lances that he can wield. His starting Speed is salvageable and he will eventually become fast enough to outspeed most enemies after a few levels, but he will be unlikely to be able to wield very many heavy weapons to do so, and he will take significant time and effort to catch up regardless.

Rosaado's starting class, Wyvern Knight, is one of the strongest in Engage, with good class bases, growths and solid command of the Weapon Triangle, and as such, if the player is intending to make him work as a combat unit, there is usually no need to class him out of it, though there is value in reclassing him to a Sword variant instead of lances or axes to suit his Build better. If a combat role is not needed, his starting SP of 1800 can also allow him to become a reasonably strong Chain Attack support unit as a Hero or Warrior with relatively little investment, though this niche is easier to fill with Goldmary, who already begins as a Hero just two levels away from Brave Assist.

Rosado begins wielding the Ring of the Azure Twins, but makes poor initial use of the ring due to his Speed being impacted so heavily by his Build. If given a lighter weapon, it can help to compensate for his low Strength, but otherwise makes no particularly standout use of it. For other Emblem Rings, the Ring of the Sage Lord goes some way to fixing his low Build, allowing him access to stronger weapons to compensate for his low starting strength. The Ring of the Young Lion is also an interesting option on him, as not only does he enjoy the ring's high Strength bonuses, but his high growth rates pair well with the Engage skill Rise Above.

Overall, Rosado unfortunately does not match up to the high standards set by many of the preceding pre-promoted units before him. His high growth rates and good starting class means he is not unsalvageable, but his low base stats mean he is not a match for stronger units statistically at almost any point in the game. He can be a reasonable filler unit or replacement, but otherwise is generally overlooked in most runs.
