By the 2030's, an older Rose is under the protection of the BSAA as due to her parents' mutation, she has developed powers similar to Eveline; having grown up fully aware of the Dulvey incident, Rose has a deep hatred for being compared to the psychotic bio-weapon. Despite this hatred, she is constantly shadowed by BSAA agents, ready to kill her at the sign of any aggression. She visits Ethan's grave on his birthday every year. One of her cherished possessions is the Village of Shadows storybook and another is her father's jacket, which she wears. Per the promise to her father, Chris has had a hand in her upbringing; to teach her how to be strong of heart.
On one such outing to Ethan's grave, Rose barely has time to talk to him before an agent comes to pick her up. The agent tells Rose the BSAA needs her (hinting that she is an agent or an agent in training), jokingly calling her Eveline. Enraged at the comparison, Rose throttles the agent, telling him not to call her that again or she would do things to him that even Chris doesn't know about before getting in the car, where the agent has to tell a nearby sniper to not shoot her for the aggressive act. She scolds herself for the slip and calmly listens to the agent, whom tells her that she is very much like Ethan, to which she smiles and replies that she knew. However before they could fully drive away from the cemetery, they are stopped by a mysterious stranger.
