Half rusalka, half the breath, officially of the Sun. She shows up in Strings.

Her actual name is Clementine, but use it at your peril.

She currently lives in Manhattan, and is one of the best healers out there – which is why she counts herself among the People of the Sun. They don’t see her as one of them, but Rosa is never one to let others tell her what to think.

She adopted a bizarre, stereotyped fortune-teller guise in the 1950s, since at the time, being willingly campy (and thus self-denigrating) was a good way to avoid the kind of persecution that could often come the way of anybody who didn’t fit the cultural-Caucasian role.

She kept the guise because she likes it, plain and simple.

We feel she’s allowed.
