Early Life and Drug AddictionEdit
When Rosalee was a kid, she spent a lot of summers with her mother's family in Ireland, which is how she picked up the Irish language. As she grew up, she tried to follow in the footsteps of her parents to become an apothecary, but at the time, she didn't like the job. Rosalee went through a rough patch of seven years where she was addicted to drugs, specifically Jay, which she bought from Cecil as well as the gang North End Crew. On one occasion, she was arrested for shoplifting a watch and served time in jail for it, during which time her father passed away, and she missed his funeral. She was unaware of this until after she was released from jail and her mother and sister were no longer speaking to her. After those seven years of bad behavior, Rosalee cleaned up her act, with some help from her brother, Freddy, and moved to Seattle.
Spring 2012: Season 1Edit
Arrival in PortlandEdit
In late March of 2011, Rosalee received a call from Nick Burkhardt of the Portland Police Department, informing her that her brother, Freddy had recently been murdered in an attempted robbery of his spice shop. Rosalee left her Seattle home to pay her respects to her brother and to pack up his Portland shop to sell it. While at the shop one night, Nick brought Monroe to the shop so they can search the basement to see if they could find something Wesen would kill for. Before leaving, Rosalee grabbed Monroe's arm and subtly woged to see if he was telling the truth about having known her brother. Monroe returned the gesture. Feeling more comfortable with someone like herself, she readily accepted temporary protective custody in Monroe's home. Rosalee assisted in her own brother's case when she betrayed some old friends at a Trauminsel she knew about. During the informal raid, she hit one of the murderers in the head with a brick. ("Island of Dreams")
Rosalee decided to reopen the apothecary, and she seeked the help of Monroe. Soon, Nick realized Rosalee's pharmaceutical skill would be useful in his detective work, and Rosalee gradually became more and more involved in his cases as Monroe had before. She assisted Nick to remove an Unbezahlbar out of a Seltenvogel's throat by reading the directions out of one of the books in her shop. ("The Thing with Feathers") Along with Monroe, she helped Nick develop an antidote for Wu to reverse the effects of Adalind Schade's Zaubertrank. Soon after, she helped Nick save his partner, detective Hank Griffin's life through her book knowledge about Hexenbiests. ("Love Sick")
Rosalee was grabbed by a man as she walked into the spice shop one morning. She was alarmed at first, but she quickly recognized him as an old friend, Ian Harmon, who had been shot by a bounty hunter, Edgar Waltz. She assisted Ian, a leader of the Laufer, and enlisted the help of Nick and Monroe. Rosalee later went to get papers for Ian to leave the country, but Waltz followed her back to the shop and threatened to kill Rosalee if Monroe didn't bring Ian back. Nick arrived at the shop just before Edgar was going to shoot Rosalee, and using a clever diversion tactic with Monroe, were able to give Ian the opportunity to shoot him. ("Cat and Mouse")
After Adalind's cat scratched Nick's girlfriend, Juliette Silverton, at her veterinary hospital, Juliette soon fell into a coma, so Nick and Monroe brought the cat to the spice shop for testing. Rosalee gassed the cat with valerian so she could check its claws and saliva. ("Woman in Black")
Spring 2012-Spring 2013: Season 2Edit
Monroe and Rosalee arrived at Nick's house just after the fight with Akira Kimura. After Nick told them that Kimura was responsible for the damage in the house, Monroe and Rosalee realized that someone else was in the house by catching their scent. Nick's mom, Kelly Burkhardt, then attacked Monroe and pulled out a knife. After things calmed down, Monroe and Rosalee were both shocked to be told Kelly was Nick's mother, who they thought was dead. Rosalee then told Nick that she and Monroe were working on a cure for the spell that put Juliette into a coma and that it would take 16 hours for it to be ready.
Rosalee and Monroe waited impatiently at the hospital while unknown to them, Kelly and Nick fought and killed a Mauvais Dentes. Once they arrived, Rosalee instructed Nick on how to apply the cure and told him that there was no way to know if it worked until she woke up. Rosalee and Monroe then drove Kelly back to Nick's house, and Rosalee told Kelly about the recent events and how she trusted Nick. Once at Nick's house, Rosalee hugged Kelly as she said goodbye. Later on, Rosalee was threatened by Catherine Schade in the spice shop and called Nick to tell him. ("The Kiss")
Yellow Plague on the First DateEdit
After Rosalee managed to "deal" with Adalind's cat, who had done some damage to the spice shop, Monroe asked Rosalee to go on a picnic with him. During the picnic, they were attacked by an infected Stangebär. They managed to escape and drove back to the spice shop. Once there, Rosalee began to get very touchy with Monroe and heavily kissed him. Simultaneously, Monroe was speaking to Nick on the phone, wile telling him about the symptoms of the infection (being extremely love drunk). Monroe then realized that Rosalee was exhibiting the symptom and saw a scratch on her neck. Monroe hung up and told her that she was infected. While Monroe was making the antidote for the disease, Rosalee broke out the window of the spice shop. Nick then arrived, along with Hank and Ryan Gilko, the Stangebär who infected Rosalee. Nick went after Rosalee in the back alley way where she attacked him with a pair of scissors, but Nick managed to disarm her and knocked her unconscious. Nick then brought Rosalee back into the shop where she was given the antidote. When she woke up, Rosalee asked Monroe if they kissed, which he told her that they had. ("Quill")
One night, Rosalee went over to Monroe's house for dinner where they discovered that they both liked the same artist and began kissing. In the middle of this, they were interrupted by Angelina Lasser, Monroe's ex-girlfriend, which caused Rosalee to leave. She later apologized to Monroe over the phone and told him that she was leaving Portland for a little while because her aunt was ill. She then asked Monroe to look after the shop while she was gone, which Monroe agreed to do. Later, while Rosalee was on a bus out of town, Monroe, Nick, Hank, and Angelina called her to get her help to make a Dead Faint Potion for Monroe. She was reluctant to help at first because of the risks, but she ended up helping and also warned the group about how to save Monroe if the potion went wrong. Later on, Nick called Rosalee to tell her everything went well, much to her relief. ("Over My Dead Body")
Rosalee later called Monroe while he was in the shop to inform him of an order placed by Leroy Estes, a man with balance problems. She then gave him the recipe for the Inner Ear Potion and told him about the assourdissant to give to Leroy. Awhile later, Rosalee called Monroe at the spice shop and told him her aunt was getting better and that she should be home soon. ("To Protect and Serve Man") After Monroe later informed Rosalee of the Captain Renard-Nick-Juliette love triangle, Rosalee figured out that Renard was the one who woke Juliette from her spell-induced coma. She then told Monroe that her aunt was doing much better and that she was returning to Portland, which she did the next morning. At the shop, Rosalee blended a batch of the potion for Nick to drink. ("Face Off") Monroe gave a blood sample from Nick to Rosalee, who added it to part of the potion she was making (just Juliette's) for Renard and Juliette. ("Natural Born Wesen")
The Wesen CouncilEdit
Later on, Rosalee and Monroe talked about the bank robberies around Portland and the possibility of getting the Wesen Council involved. Monroe hoped it wouldn't come to that, but after Rosalee addressed a meeting of very scared Wesen in the spice shop and promised to deal with the situation, she later revealed to Monroe that her father and brother had a contact on the Council. She and Monroe searched Freddy's papers and found the contact details, and Rosalee made the call. ("Natural Born Wesen")
Nick, Hank, Monroe, and Rosalee discussed Nick telling them that Captain Renard woged into a Hexenbiest. Rosalee said that since he was male, he was technically a Zauberbiest. Later, Juliette visited Rosalee at the spice shop and described what was happening to her, but when Rosalee came over, she was unable to see the visions that Juliette was seeing. Rosalee later helped Nick after he was blinded by Andre, finding the cure for the Jinnamuru Xunte worms and administering it to Nick's eyes to help him regain his vision. ("Mr. Sandman")
Juliette after came to Rosalee and Monroe after her visions became clearer and she realized she was seeing Nick, and when Monroe blurted out a reference to the trailer, Rosalee said that it might help Juliette's memory to go there. ("Nameless")
Justice is ServedEdit
Rosalee was on jury duty as the forewoman at the trial of Don Nidaria. Upon returning to the spice shop, she told Monroe that she hadn't been feeling well and that at the court, she felt one way about the case but suddenly was leaning the other way. Once Monroe discovered that the defense attorney, Barry Kellogg, was a Ziegevolk, he called Nick to the courthouse and told him what he discovered. Back at the spice shop, they told Rosalee what was going on, and they started looking for a way to stop Kellogg. Rosalee discovered that Ziegevolk have a special gland and found a neutralizing potion. She made the potion and gave it to Monroe to inject into one of Kellogg's toads before he ate it.
The potion worked, and Rosalee announced the guilty verdict. Back at the spice shop, Nick, Hank, Monroe, Rosalee, and Bud Wurstner celebrated with champagne, but Kellogg entered the spice shop for help. Kellogg recognized her from the jury, accused her of poisoning him, and woged and attacked her, but Monroe woged, grabbed Kellogg, and threw him into shelf of supplies while defending her. ("One Angry Fuchsbau")
Aliens and a MuseEdit
Rosalee and Monroe talked about whether Monroe should invite his parents to Portland, but he was unsure because Nick might cut off their heads, as they were not Wieder Blutbaden.
Nick later asked Rosalee about Glühenvolk, and she told him how she thought they were extinct, as they were hunted for their luminescent skins, and that when she was little, she thought that they looked beautiful and that seeing one was good luck. Rosalee found a book that males hunt for cow ovaries when females are pregnant. Monroe, Rosalee, and Nick found George Lazure's trailer and entered, where Rosalee identified a fleshing knife. Rosalee then found the bottle of Sauver Sa Peau, and Monroe said that if a Wesen was shot with the laced bullets, the potion would cause the Wesen to remain in full woge after death for 6-8 hours.
When they arrived at the cabin where Jocelyn was, Rosalee introduced herself, Monroe, and Nick, and explained that they were there to help. Rosalee took charge when Jocelyn went into labor and helped delivered the baby as Vincent returned. When Lazure confronted them, Rosalee, along with Monroe and Vincent, woged and challenged him. With the help of Nick, they killed him, and Rosalee, Nick, and Monroe then wished Vincent, Jocelyn, and the baby good luck as they drove away in Lazure's truck on their way to Alaska. ("Endangered")
Later, Hank consulted with Rosalee and Monroe regarding Nick's strange behavior. He showed them the picture that Nick drew of Khloe Sedgwick's woged form in the bar, but neither knew what kind of Wesen they were dealing with. They all go to the trailer, which fascinated and intrigued Rosalee, until Monroe pointed out that its purpose was to aid Grimms in the killing of Wesen. After awhile, they figured out that Khloe was a Musai. Now that she knew what type of Wesen was involved, Rosalee was able to use the books in the spice shop to discover more about Musai, including the fact that there was no known antidote to the effect of a Musai's kiss. Rosalee theorized that as the effect was like love, then the only cure would be the real thing. Juliette then arrived asking for the key to the trailer, and Rosalee convinced Monroe to give it to her. After Juliette returned from visiting the trailer, Monroe and Rosalee attempted to explain what was wrong with Nick. They said that it was similar to what happened to her, but that she was the cure, not a potion that Rosalee could concoct. All three then went to the precinct to find Nick, where Juliette helped cure him. ("Kiss of the Muse")
Making Juliette a Kehrseite-Schlich-KennenEdit
Rosalee was working in the spice shop when Monroe, Bud, and Juliette arrived. Monroe explained that Juliette had asked to see what a "woge" was, and they thought that it would be best if they demonstrated where medical attention would be nearby if required. Rosalee woged first, followed by Bud and finally, Monroe. Later, Rosalee told Nick that Juliette had seen all three of them woge. ("The Waking Dead")
Zombies in PortlandEdit
Rosalee was in the spice shop with Monroe when Nick and Hank brought Al in. When Nick told her that they were dealing with a Cracher-Mortel, she looked in the books and found a cure. She and Monroe started to make the cure while Nick and Hank left. Once the cure had been made, Rosalee administered it using a Piqure-Gigantesque. Nick returned with Juliette and gave Rosalee his key to hide, and then Rosalee, Monroe, Nick, and Juliette made more antidote and headed to the container yard. At the yard, Rosalee administered the cure to a couple of victims and fled to the car with Monroe and Juliette as the zombies overran them. ("Goodnight, Sweet Grimm")
Spring 2013-Spring 2014: Season 3Edit
Dealing with Zombie NickEdit
After Monroe crashed the car, she followed him and Juliette up a crane onto a container where she fought with the others to prevent the zombies from reaching the top. The police arrived and helped contain the zombies, and Captain Renard then took Hank, Monroe, Rosalee, and Juliette to the airport where the coffin containing Nick was going. On their way there, Rosalee said she didn't think Nick would behave the same as the other zombies because he was a Grimm. The group arrived at the airport just as the plane was taking off, and Hank told Rosalee that she needed to make more of the antidote.
Rosalee later realized the antidote could also be administered as a gas, and she returned to the container yard and told Wu and Franco about the new way of administering the cure. Monroe distracted the zombies in a container by banging on the wall, and the police quickly opened the container while Rosalee and Juliette threw jars of the antidote in. After a little while, the shipping container grew quiet. When the police opened it up, they were confronted with a bunch of bewildered people. Rosalee told them that they would all be okay now. Upon hearing news that Nick's plane had crashed, Monroe, Rosalee, and Juliette arrived to the crash site, but Nick was nowhere to be found. They went to a nearby bar where there was a reported brawl, and Rosalee said that Nick's scent was different, but she didn't know what it was. ("The Ungrateful Dead")
The group later arrived at a house where Nick and Monroe told them that they had Nick temporarily trapped in a barn. Hank, Renard, and Monroe soon went into the barn as they heard Nick breaking free. After a few minutes, Juliette and Rosalee went in, and Juliette stabbed Nick in the stomach with the Piqure-Gigantesque, but Nick hit her to the ground before she could administer the antidote, so Rosalee quickly ran up and pushed the plunger. As Nick moved forward to attack her, Monroe moved between them and Nick collapsed.
Back at the spice shop, Rosalee administered another dosage of the antidote into Nick. Rosalee said there was nothing else they could do. She wasn't sure if the antidote would even work on him, but Nick later woke up, asking why he was there and what was happening. Captain Renard later explained to Hank, Juliette, Monroe, and Rosalee that one of the belligerents in the bar fight died, and he warned them that they would soon be questioned and had them get the details of their stories straight. Later, when Monroe and Rosalee were cleaning the spice shop, Detective Holtby and Detective Bauer arrived to question Rosalee about the events at the bar. After they left, Rosalee called Juliette to let her know the detectives had been at the spice shop. ("PTZD")
Moving in with MonroeEdit
Rosalee had dinner with Monroe at Raven & Rose. Before the meal, they were each offered a beef and mushroom tartlet as compliments of the chef. After allowing Monroe to smell his, Rosalee ate both to prevent him from falling off the meat wagon. During the meal, Monroe asked Rosalee to move in with him, and she accepted. Monroe's old friend, Sam then walked past with his wife Kimber, and they greeted each other warmly.
When Monroe found out Sam was missing, Nick and Monroe eventually figured out that victims who died after eating at Raven & Rose were all Blutbaden. Juliette told Rosalee that the victims' insides basically bursting were causing them to die, similar to gastric dilatation volvulus. Sounding familiar, Rosalee found info on Völlige Verzweiflung at the spice shop. Rosalee remembered the tartlets at the restaurant and that they were given to everyone, but Monroe didn't eat his because it had meat in it.
Rosalee later tried to calm Monroe down about the Bauerschwein at the restaurant killing Blutbaden, but Monroe wasn't convinced and left to try and go handle the situation himself after Nick arrived and told them that Chef Ostler knew what he was doing but wouldn't turn himself in.
Later, Rosalee was moving her belongings into Monroe's house when she said all her stuff made Monroe's place look smaller. Monroe said that it was an opportunity to clear out some of his junk. Nick and Hank arrived later to talk about another case involving Naiads, and Rosalee said she knew one in Seattle. ("One Night Stand")
Monroe was doing his morning exercises one day, so Rosalee answered the phone when it rang. The caller was Monroe's mother, so Monroe spoke to her and explained that the person who answered the phone was Rosalee, his girlfriend. ("El Cucuy")
Genetics, Grausen, and Dēcapitāre (Oh my!)Edit
Rosalee was in the spice shop with Monroe when Nick and Hank arrived to ask about the offspring between Wesen and humans, so they gave a brief overview. When Nick described what happened to Daniel Keary, Rosalee and Monroe thought that he may be Grausen, and if that was the case, Rosalee said she had to inform the Wesen Council. Later, Monroe and Rosalee were asleep when someone knocked on their door. Monroe answered expecting Nick, but it was Alexander who asked for Rosalee. Rosalee appeared and reluctantly told Alexander where to find Daniel. ("Stories We Tell Our Young")
One night, Rosalee and Monroe met with Nick, Hank, and Juliette to discuss and research Gelumcaedus. Later, when Nick called to ask what Dēcapitāre meant, Rosalee answered the phone and told Nick that it was Latin for Grimm, as in "he who decapitates." ("Cold Blooded")
First Christmas with MonroeEdit
As Rosalee was getting ready to head to the shop, she asked Monroe if he would be coming by, but he excused himself. When she returned home that evening, she found the house full of Christmas decorations. Rosalee told Monroe that her favorite aunt and uncle, Jeanette and Henry, died in a car crash on Christmas eve on the way to her house when she was a kid, so Christmas was a dark time for her. Rosalee woke up the next morning to find Monroe not in bed, so she went downstairs to find the decorations gone and Monroe asleep on the couch.
She later talked with Juliette and told her she felt bad that Monroe took down the decorations because of her. Juliette told her that she and Monroe just needed to make their own traditions. After Monroe came home from helping Nick find Krampus, he saw that Rosalee had put all the decorations back up, but instead of milk & cookies, there was a beer & cigar, being the only tradition she remembered from her childhood. He saw Rosalee passed out on the couch, which caused him to smile and put a blanket on her. ("Twelve Days of Krampus")
Nick and Hank went to the spice shop looking for information about Wesen gangs, and Rosalee said she knew the North End Crew, having bought drugs from them when she was an addict. She told Nick and Hank that they were all Yaguaraté. The detectives then asked if she knew about the 7th Street Savages, and she told them that they were a Seattle-based gang that didn't usually come to Portland. Later, Juliette visited Rosalee to ask about the response of her friend, Alicia, to Juliette's asking about her Wesen side. Rosalee explained that Nick's, Hank's, and her reaction to Wesen was not normal. She also explained that most Wesen wanted to be "normal" and to give Alicia time to "come out." ("Eyes of the Beholder")
Engagement and Family DramaEdit
At the spice shop, Monroe found a letter from Rosalee's mother inviting her to visit on the anniversary of her father's death. Rosalee was very nervous about going, since this was the first time she had heard from her mother since her father's death. With Monroe accompanying her, she decided to make the trip. She also said that her sister, DeEtta, the martyr, would be there.
Outside her mother's house, Rosalee was hesitant about ringing the doorbell until Monroe covered her hand with his. Her mother opened the door and seemed genuinely pleased to see her. DeEtta, however, was very curt. During dinner, DeEtta did her best to ruin the reunion, including insulting Monroe's heritage and job. She needled Rosalee so much about missing their father's funeral that Rosalee blurted out that the reason she did not attend was that she was in jail for shoplifting. Rosalee then rushed out of the house, with Monroe in pursuit. Once outside, Rosalee rambled on about how badly the reunion was going, while Monroe held her. Monroe asked what she stole, and when she told him it was a watch, he asked what type, which caused her to laugh, and they embraced. They went back to the house where Rosalee's mother met them halfway and hugged Rosalee. ("The Good Soldier")
Rosalee later went out to dinner with Monroe in a fancy restaurant, and they shared stories about their first woge. Rosalee wondered if they were celebrating something, but Monroe said no. Once they arrived home, Rosalee wanted to go to bed, but Monroe insisted she looked at a clock. When the clock chimed, a bird popped out with an engagement ring in its beak, while the sound repeated, "Will you marry me?" Monroe dropped to one knee and awaited her answer. Rosalee happily accepted.
When planning their wedding, Monroe and Rosalee realized that there might be a problem with some of their Wesen friends when they discovered that Nick, a Grimm, would be attending. Rosalee convinced Monroe that he should call his parents and tell them the news. Later, Monroe cheerily informed Rosalee at the spice shop that he called his parents and broke the news. They began making out, but Monroe received a call from his mother, who told Monroe that she and his father were coming to Portland the next day. Monroe protested weakly, but his mother hung up.
Rosalee was stressing about meeting Monroe's parents while cooking dinner for all four of them, when the door bell rang. Thinking it was Nick, Monroe answered the door to his parents. Monroe's parents were very happy about Monroe's engagement until they realized that Rosalee was a Fuchsbau. When they started protesting that Monroe and Rosalee were breaking the laws of nature, Rosalee stormed out of the house in disgust. ("The Wild Hunt") After leaving the house, she returned to the spice shop, sat on the floor and cried. She was later woken up by Monroe arriving to apologize. Monroe said that he loved her, and if being with her meant he had to cut all ties with his parents, that was what he would do. When they woke in the morning, Monroe would not be dissuaded from his chosen course and left to say his goodbyes to his parents.
While Rosalee was preparing a potion, Juliette arrived and told Rosalee about what happened after she left Monroe's home the previous evening. Juliette also told Rosalee about the case Nick wanted to speak to Monroe about. When Rosalee told Monroe about the Caccia Morta, he immediately left to find Nick. That night, Rosalee had just closed the shop when Monroe's mother, Alice, knocked on the door. Rosalee opened the door, and Alice explained that she did not want to lose Monroe and that Rosalee and Monroe had to decide things for themselves. Alice asked if Rosalee would be open to the Vertrautheiten. Rosalee wondered if it would work, and Alice said that it couldn't hurt. They both woged and performed the Vertrautheiten.
At a meal at Monroe and Rosalee's house with Monroe, Alice, Bart, Nick, and Juliette, Juliette asked about the wedding, which caused Bart to woge and in turn, lead to the other three Wesen to woge in response. Nick then stood up holding a carving knife and told everyone to calm down, and they all retracted. ("Revelation")
Wu's Encounter and a MummyEdit
At the spice shop, Rosalee told Nick and Hank that valerian root was a natural sedative used in teas and oils but could be very dangerous in large doses. Nick, Hank, Monroe and Rosalee went to the trailer to look for anything about attacks on pregnant women using valerian root and found that they were dealing with an Aswang. Rosalee agreed that this would not be a good gateway Wesen for Wu. ("Mommy Dearest")
At Nick and Juliette's house, Rosalee discussed what to do about Wu with Nick, Juliette, Hank, and Monroe. They decided to wait and see how he responded to treatment. At the spice shop, while Rosalee and Monroe were waiting for their wedding planner, Nick, Hank, and Juliette arrived to ask about a fully woged, mummified Anubis. Rosalee told them that lots of Egyptian Gods were Wesen. Nick then showed Monroe and Rosalee symbols that Karl Herman had left behind, and they both immediately suspected the Beati Paoli were involved and briefed Nick, Hank, and Juliette about the organization and its goals. Once the others left, Monroe asked Rosalee about informing the Wesen Council, but Rosalee said that the Council likely knew about the situation already because of media coverage.
Alexander later arrived at the spice shop asking to speak to Nick. Once he left after talking with Nick, Monroe and Rosalee thought it was strange that the Council wanted a Grimm to kill a Wesen. Nick called Monroe and Rosalee to watch Alexander's rented SUV, and they spotted him putting the mummy in the back of the vehicle. Later, in a clearing in a forest while the Anubis mummy was cremated, Rosalee, Monroe, and Alexander all woged out of respect. ("Once We Were Gods")
A Carnival and Wedding PlansEdit
During a dinner with Monroe, Rosalee, Nick, and Juliette, Monroe asked Nick to be his best man, and Rosalee asked Juliette to be her maid of honor. The four then happily toasted their glasses of wine.
When Nick and Hank visited the spice shop to ask about the Carnival, Rosalee and Monroe explained about the tradition and how, because the audience believed that the woged Wesen was a trick, it technically did not break the Gesetzbuch Ehrenkodex. Rosalee and Monroe also explained about Umkippen. After Nick and Hank left, Rosalee suggested to Monroe that they investigate the Carnival, but Monroe was unsure, and she said it would be better than Nick going as a Grimm. Monroe agreed, and they went to the Carnival. At the Carnival, because of the injury to Genvieve, Rosalee inadvertently managed to get herself hired as a performer. While changing into her costume, Rosalee talked to Genvieve and learned that all the performers were suffering from Umkippen, but her Blutbad boyfriend, Max, was suffering the most.
On stage, as Hedig cracked his whip for Rosalee to woge, Max broke out of his cage early and attacked the other performers and Hedig. As Max advanced towards Rosalee, Monroe woged and attacked him. Rosalee then stopped Monroe from further injuring Max by reminding him that Max was sick. Later, Genvieve thanked Monroe and Rosalee for their help as they drove away to get help for Max. ("The Show Must Go On")
Rosalee and Monroe were at home planning their wedding when Nick arrived. Nick told them that he thought it was too dangerous for him to be best man at the wedding because of the risk of a fight if he was identified as a Grimm. Rosalee and Monroe told him that the way they could tell that he was a Grimm was because his eyes turned to an infinite darkness that reflected a Wesen's true nature back at them. Nick put sunglasses on, and Monroe and Rosalee both woged and excitedly agreed that they successfully hid Nick's true identity, so Nick remained the best man.
Later, at a bridal shop, Juliette was looking at dresses and held them up to herself while looking in a mirror, when Rosalee came out of the fitting room in her Grandmother's wedding dress. ("Synchronicity")
Adalind and Her DaughterEdit
Monroe and Rosalee were in bed making out when Nick called to tell them that Adalind and his mother, Kelly, were in town and that Adalind now had a baby daughter, with Captain Renard being the father. Nick told them that Adalind and the baby needed a place to stay where they could be safe, so they were coming over. When everyone arrived, Nick and Renard thanked Monroe and Rosalee for helping out. Rosalee prepared a room for Adalind and the baby. After everyone left, Adalind confessed to Rosalee that she did not want to be alone, and Rosalee told her that she wouldn't be.
In the middle of the night, Adalind couldn't get her baby to stop crying. Monroe and Rosalee got out of bed to see what was going on, and Rosalee noticed the baby had a little fever. Suddenly, all the clocks in the house went wild as the baby started crying harder, and just as sudden, the clocks calmed down as she stopped crying and Kelly walked into the room. Monroe asked what just happened as Kelly walked into the living room. ("The Law of Sacrifice")
Monroe later told Rosalee about how they took back the baby from the Royals. Suddenly, there was a knock at the door. Monroe looked and saw that it was Adalind. When Monroe opened the door, Adalind went to Rosalee to tell her that Diana was taken from her and hugged Rosalee. Monroe then called Nick to tell him Adalind was at his house, and Nick told him to try to keep her there until they could figure out what to do. Rosalee wasn't real happy about what Nick said and warned Monroe that Adalind had her powers back, and if she found out he had something to do with giving the baby away, she wouldn't be happy. ("Nobody Knows the Trubel I've Seen")
With Nick on speaker, he asked Rosalee and Monroe if they could woge for Trubel like they did for Juliette to show Trubel that not all Wesen were bad. When Nick, Hank, and Trubel arrived at Monroe and Rosalee's home, Monroe and Rosalee woged so that only Nick and Trubel could see their Wesen form. Rosalee and Monroe explained to Trubel about how they could tell she was a Grimm, and Rosalee told her she needed to be careful because not all Wesen were like her and Monroe. ("My Fair Wesen") Monroe, Rosalee, Nick, Juliette, and Trubel later had dinner at Nick and Juliette's house.
Later at the spice shop, Rosalee got very stressed out by all the wedding preparations. She confessed her doubts to Monroe about having her and Monroe's families together in one room along with a Grimm, and she told Monroe that she felt that something would go wrong at their wedding. Monroe then hugged her to calm her down.
Nick, Juliette, Hank, Trubel, and Josh Porter later went to the spice shop, where Rosalee got Nick's key out of its hiding place. Nick and Monroe printed the map pieces of Nick's two keys together, and Monroe confirmed that the keys definitely lead to somewhere in the Black Forest. ("The Inheritance")
Time for a WeddingEdit
At the Zimmer Mountain Lodge, Rosalee and Monroe had their wedding rehearsal. Nick stood by Monroe as his best man, while Juliette and DeEtta stood by Rosalee as her maid of honor and matron of honor, respectively. Bart, Alice, Gloria, Hank, and Bud all watched the rehearsal from their seats. That night, Monroe, Rosalee, and everyone else from the wedding rehearsal had a rehearsal dinner. Bart made a toast where he apologized to Monroe, Rosalee, and Nick for the way he acted when he first met Rosalee and Nick. After dinner, Monroe, Rosalee, Bart, Alice, Gloria, and DeEtta all went to Monroe and Rosalee's home. Rosalee asked everyone if they wanted anything else before they went to bed, and everyone said no, except for DeEtta, who mentioned she'd take more wine. Rosalee took DeEtta to the kitchen for wine while everyone else went to bed.
In the middle of the night, there was a crash causing everyone to get out of bed. They all entered the living room to find a very drunk DeEtta in Rosalee's wedding dress. The dress had red wine stains all over it, and after DeEtta drunkenly told Rosalee she wouldn't let her get married in the dress because she had had two failed marriages after getting married in the same dress, she passed out on the floor. The next morning, Rosalee, Gloria, Bart, and Alice went to a bridal shop to find a new dress. The shop was not open yet, but after some persuading, a saleswoman let everyone in so Rosalee could get a dress.
At the wedding, Rosalee came down the stairs and met Hank, who walked her the rest of the way up the aisle. Monroe and Rosalee said their vows and put on their wedding rings. Right after they kissed each other for the first time as a married couple, Trubel ran in with an antidote for Nick, which caused all the Wesen wedding guests to freak out. Rosalee helped get Trubel away from everyone and then discovered that Nick had lost his Grimm abilities. Rosalee and Monroe stayed behind while Nick, Hank, and Juliette got Trubel away from the wedding site. ("Blond Ambition")
Spring 2014-Spring 2015: Season 4Edit
Trying to Restore Nick's Grimm PowersEdit
Juliette was disappointed that Monroe and Rosalee came over instead of going on their honeymoon. They told her there was no way they could go with everything that just happened.
Rosalee told Monroe and Juliette that they needed to figure out what was in the bottle that Trubel brought to the wedding for Nick, as Nick and Trubel then arrived home. Trubel apologized to Monroe and Rosalee for messing up their wedding, and Rosalee told her she did what she had to for Nick. Rosalee said they just needed to find out how Adalind did this, and Juliette said she slept with Nick, which shocked Monroe and Rosalee. Nick told them that Adalind made herself look like Juliette. Rosalee then said she hoped it wasn't some kind of Verfluchte Zwillingsschwester, or an entwining twin curse because they make a mess of things. Monroe and Rosalee then went to the spice shop to look for info. ("Thanks for the Memories")
At the spice shop, they had little success finding anything. They came to the conclusion that Renard must have known what Adalind did since he had a potion for Nick to drink. Monroe suggested they find out where Adalind made the potion so they could reverse engineer it, but Rosalee said that Renard could have made it himself since he's a Zauberbiest. Later, Juliette arrived at the spice shop to tell them that her and Nick weren't sure they wanted Nick to be a Grimm again because of the problems it had caused. Rosalee reminded her that just because Nick couldn't see Wesen, didn't mean he didn't know. Juliette assured them it wouldn't change their friendship in any way and left. Monroe told Rosalee he thought they should keep looking for a way to help Nick anyway. ("Octopus Head")
Kidnap Monroe or Forever Hold Your PeaceEdit
Rosalee and Monroe first became aware that some Wesen did not approve of their marriage when a brick with a Wolfsangel on it was thrown through a window of the spice shop. ("Dyin' on a Prayer") This warning message became even more sinister when a Wolfsangel was lit on fire on the lawn of Monroe and Rosalee's house while Nick, Juliette, and Hank were there. Rosalee realized that the Secundum Naturae Ordinem Wesen, also known as the Wesenrein, were likely responsible for the brick and the burning Wolfsangel. These warning messages escalated to a full-fledged threat when Rosalee received a call at the spice shop from the Wesenrein to tell her that her marriage was an abomination and that there was something at the back door, and her blood would be next. Hung above the back doors, she found a dead fox dripping blood. Rosalee told Monroe about what had happened, and his eyes woged red at the sight of the fox, clearly enraged. The night before Monroe and Rosalee were to leave for their honeymoon, the Secundum Naturae Ordinem Wesen finally took action when one of their own, Officer Acker, kept watch outside their house and helped them kidnap Monroe. ("Chupacabra")
Rosalee called 911 when she realized that Monroe was missing, and Acker attempted to mislead the rest of the police, but due to previous work of Bud and Trubel and the furious efforts of Nick, Hank, Renard, Wu, Juliette, and Rosalee, they were able to connect Acker to the Wesenrein and find out that his sister had been to Rosalee's wedding and told Acker about it. Using Acker's sister as leverage, they found out where Monroe had been taken and were able to rescue him just in time. Rosalee and Monroe, both extremely grateful for everyone's help, had a touching moment of thanks afterwards and at last, went on their honeymoon. Monroe was still traumatized a bit from the ordeal, however, and Rosalee later comforted him and told him, "We're rewound now, and we have a whole lot more ticking and tocking to do." ("Tribunal") ("Death Do Us Part") ("Hibernaculum")
While helping Nick track down a Leporem Venator that was hunting a Willahara family, Rosalee and Monroe briefly touched on the topic of parenthood at a Wesen fertility clinic, and Rosalee told Monroe that he'd be a great father. ("Bad Luck")
Losing a Friend, Helping an EnemyEdit
Unaware that Juliette's complaints to Rosalee of nausea and frequent headaches and questions about Hexenbiests were the result of a major, unforeseen side-effect to Nick getting his Grimm powers back, Rosalee found out that Juliette had turned into a Hexenbiest after Juliette went to the spice shop, desperate for help. Juliette shocked her and Monroe when she woged. Juliette then said she had made a mistake coming there and left, but not before blaming everyone for having had a hand in her current situation. When everyone except Rosalee left to investigate a frozen attacker, Rosalee loudly exclaimed, "She's a freakin' Hexenbiest?"
Rosalee and Monroe later decided to contact Renard because he had the Zaubertrank Recipe Book and witch's hat, but not every detail they needed to know was in the book, and Renard later told them that was why only a skilled Hexenbiest should be attempting to help Juliette. As Juliette's personality and behavior changed more rapidly and she started to become increasingly violent, Rosalee thought that Adalind may be the only one that could help, though Nick resisted this idea initially, and Rosalee felt it was unlikely she would help anyways. After an unsuccessful attempt by Rosalee to reach out to Juliette when she was in jail, it just so happened that Adalind had no other recourse than to ask Nick to help protect her and their unborn baby from Juliette, in exchange for Adalind's help in making a Hexenbiest suppressant for Juliette to take. Nick brought Adalind to the spice shop and caught Rosalee up to speed, and Rosalee agreed to work with Adalind in making the suppressant in order to help Juliette. ("Mishipeshu") ("Iron Hans")
Once the suppressant was finished, Juliette "agreed" to come to the spice shop to take it, with Nick, Hank, Monroe, and Rosalee still willing to help her even after she torched the trailer. With the suppressant proven to have worked on Adalind, the group tried to get Juliette to take it, but Juliette quickly turned on the group and destroyed the suppressant, despite Rosalee's best efforts to prevent her from doing the latter. After Juliette nearly forced Nick to shoot Monroe using her telekinetic abilities and left, Rosalee called her a "bitch" and declared that she was done trying to help her anymore. With Adalind still needing protection from Juliette and the Royals, Rosalee helped look after her at Bud's house while Monroe, Nick, Hank, Wu, and Trubel infiltrated a rented Royal compound and unsuccessfully attempted to get Adalind's daughter back and deal with Juliette. Unbeknownst to Rosalee, however, Juliette made her way to her former home with Nick, where Nick had an emotional encounter with her that ended with Trubel killing her with the Doppelarmbrust. ("You Don't Know Jack") ("Headache") ("Cry Havoc")
Spring 2015-Spring 2016: Season 5Edit
Spring 2016-Present: Season 6Edit
Bud Wurstner showed up at the spice shop to meet Monroe and Rosalee, whom Nick Burkhardt recommended he see regarding his hair loss problem. Bud asked if Rosalee had a remedy for hair loss for his "friend," and satisfied with their answer, he excitedly left. Rosalee employed the help of Monroe in making the hair regrowth formula, but Monroe did not exactly follow Rosalee's instructions.
Bud returned to thank Monroe and Rosalee for preparing the formula "for his friend." Rosalee also tried Monroe's "creative" baking, which involved making a dandelion-seaweed cookie. Bud came into Rosalee's shop panicking because his hair (and his friend's hair) was growing out of control. Rosalee and Monroe said that they knew that the cure was for Bud and that his hair looked okay. Bud brought in John Oblinger, who was also suffering from extreme hair growth. Rosalee and Monroe then had to wash the cure into both Bud and John's hair. ("Bad Hair Day")
Rosalee was helping Juliette to lay out the food and drinks for a spa party at Juliette's home. When the host arrived, to the surprise of the ladies, it was a man. Rosalee, Juliette, and the other guests decided that they didn't mind as he was good looking. Part way through the party, Juliette showed Rosalee a frog she found in the kitchen. Rosalee immediately realized what this meant: a Ziegevolk was present. They guessed that Madison, the male host, was the Ziegevolk and discussed what to do. With most of the ingredients needed to make the pheromone antidote in her car, Rosalee said the only other requirement was the Ziegevolk's sweat.
By turning up the central heating, they were able to make Madison sweat while wearing a sleep mask. Rosalee then used the sweat to make the potion in a blender. They disguised the potion as a smoothie and handed them around as Madison got the special one. After the spa party was over, Juliette's friend Roni was about to leave with Madison when Juliette attempted to stop her. Roni told Juliette that she was okay, and she inadvertently woged into a Ziegevolk as she did so. Rosalee was so stunned to see a female Ziegevolk that Roni and Madison were able to leave before they could warn Madison. ("Love is in the Air: Elegant Endeavors")
A Wesen with a troubled past, Rosalee had her share of ups and downs in life before coming into Monroe's. A former Jay addict, Rosalee came to Portland following her brother's brutal murder. She was seen depressed but was nonetheless willing to help Nick at bringing Freddy's killers to justice, even after realizing that he was a Grimm. Like Monroe, Rosalee has a high moral compass, demonstrated by her being noticeably appalled by immoral conducts of human and Wesen alike. Occassionally, she can be assertive, if not downright aggressive, in her approach to doing the right thing.
Rosalee also exhibits a supportive and sometimes even motherly side to those close to her, as seen when she gave advice on acceptance when Juliette came to her concerning her Wesen friend Alicia. ("Eyes of the Beholder")
First and foremost, Rosalee is a Fuchsbau and also one of Nick's more prominent Wesen friends. Hence, she has the power to shift into her true Wesen form when forced to exert herself or when under stress. While in this state, her senses, particularly her sense of smell, becomes very acute, on par with Monroe's.
Rosalee is also a talented apothecary, well-versed in multiple forms of ancient remedies. This effectively makes her among the more intellectual members of Nick's friends. She has showed some level of fighting skills and once knocked down a Drang-Zorn with a single punch. ("Bad Luck")
- Monroe - Rosalee first met Monroe when she came to Portland from Seattle after her brother, Freddy, was murdered. ("Island of Dreams") Nick contacted her, being the spice shop owner's next of kin. Monroe came to the spice shop one night with Nick while Rosalee was there. Later, she saved Monroe's life, which he thanked her by getting her flowers. With Monroe then helping Rosalee out a bit with the spice shop and both of them aiding Nick, they began to grow close. Monroe first asked Rosalee out for a picnic date, during which they also had their first kiss. ("Quill") After dating for awhile, Monroe asked Rosalee to move in with him, ("A Dish Best Served Cold") which she accepted, and they soon got engaged ("The Wild Hunt") and married. ("Blond Ambition") Monroe was kidnapped by the Secundum Naturae Ordinem Wesen due to the organization's objection to them being married, but Rosalee, along with Nick, Hank, the Captain, Wu, and Juliette, were able to rescue him, as well as Bud. ("Tribunal")
- Nick Burkhardt - She was initially wary of Nick being a Grimm and quite interested in how he could be both a cop and work with a Blutbad, but the two eventually befriended each other, and Rosalee now aids Nick with solving various Wesen related cases using her apothecary skills and knowledge of the Wesen world. Nick entrusted Rosalee with his keys and later, the rest of his surviving Grimm equipment and books.
- Juliette Silverton - Rosalee met Juliette when she was taken to the spice shop to break the bond with Renard using the Infatuation Cure. Juliette eventually became one of Rosalee's good friends and confidants, and Rosalee was also the first Wesen that Juliette saw woge. ("The Waking Dead") After Juliette turned into a Hexenbiest, however, their relationship quickly deteriorated as Juliette began to lose her humanity. Rosalee had little luck talking sense into her when she visited her in prison, ("Iron Hans") and after Juliette almost killed Monroe, ("Headache") she officially cut any ties she still had with her as a friend. In spite of her anger, Rosalee did miss the old Juliette, and when Nick informed her of Juliette's death, she was the only one other than Nick to mourn Juliette. ("The Grimm Identity")
- Hank Griffin - Rosalee first met Hank briefly after she came to Portland following Freddy's death. ("Island of Dreams") Unbeknownst to Hank at the time, Rosalee ended up playing a large role in saving his life shortly thereafter. ("Love Sick") Monroe decided to call and consult Rosalee after Nick told him about Hank's sudden infatuation with Adalind. Rosalee found out his condition was due to Le mort pour l'amour, and she informed Nick about destroying Adalind's Hexenbiest spirit and how to do it so Hank could be cured. Since Hank discovered the truth about the Wesen world, ("Bad Moon Rising") ("Quill") she was more direct in aiding Hank (and Nick) in their Wesen-related investigations, and she has helped Hank further understand Wesen and Wesen-related issues.
- Gloria Calvert - She is Rosalee's mother. When Rosalee was a drug addict and got caught for shoplifting, she was imprisoned and missed her father's funeral. Gloria and Rosalee didn't speak for seven years after that, but Gloria was able to forgive her over time and reached out to her as the anniversary of her husband's death was approaching. ("The Good Soldier") Rosalee was able to reconnect with her mother after they saw each other for the first time in seven years. They have kept in touch since and are on good terms with each other once again. ("Blond Ambition") ("Wesenrein")
- DeEtta Calvert - She is Rosalee's sister. Their relationship was uneasy for quite awhile, and they did not speak or see each other for seven years. DeEtta felt that she had to come home after their father died, and she strongly resented Rosalee for missing his funeral and not coming back home as she did, unaware that Rosalee had been in jail at the time and didn't find out about their father's death until after she got out. She showed that she still cared for Rosalee, however, when she warned Monroe not to break Rosalee's heart. DeEtta and Rosalee were able to patch things up, and DeEtta later attended Rosalee's wedding.
- Freddy Calvert - Freddy is her deceased brother. ("Island of Dreams") When they were younger, Freddy was with her when Rosalee first woged. ("The Wild Hunt") As they grew older, she only saw him once a year and mostly spoke to him on the phone. When Rosalee was hooked on Jay, Freddy helped get her clean. She did not have any knowledge that when Freddy owned the spice shop, he was involved in dealing. Rosalee was aware, however, that Freddy was involved with supporting the Resistance, and she knew that she was to take Freddy's place in communicating with the Wesen Council if anything happened to him. ("Natural Born Wesen") After his death, she was determined to help find his killers. Initially thinking that the spice shop would close down after his death, she decided to stick around for Freddy's trial and keep the shop open until she had to sell it. Now, she runs the shop herself with no intention to sell it, understanding that there are not many places like it where Wesen can go. Before moving in with Monroe, she also rented Freddy's old apartment.
- Bart and Alice - Her mother and father in-law. Rosalee is on good terms with both of them now, but at first, Bart and Alice were very opposed to Monroe marrying Rosalee because of them being different types of Wesen. However, not wanting to be on poor terms and possibly lose their relationship with their son, Alice, and later Bart, eventually came around to them being a couple. Alice engaged in Vertrautheiten with Rosalee as a way for them to bond, ("Revelation") and at the rehearsal dinner for Rosalee and Monroe's wedding, Bart later apologized to Rosalee for the way he had acted towards her. ("Blond Ambition")
- (To Monroe): "Real love is hard to find." ("Love Sick")
- (To Nick): "I know it sounds hinky, but let's just say it's their pickles and ice cream." ("Endangered")
- (Talking to George Lazure) Rosalee: "How much am I worth?" Lazure: "More than a Blutbad." ("Endangered")
- (To the woged, dying George Lazure): "How much are YOU worth?" ("Endangered")
- (To Juliette): "This is a Fuchsbau." ("The Waking Dead")
- (To Monroe): "I am so sick of this-this hatred among Wesen. Didn't I almost lose you to that kind of old-world stupidity?" ("Trial by Fire")
- (To Dr. Redfield's Nurse): "How much of that blood money do you get?" ("Bad Luck")
- (To Nick, Monroe, and Hank regarding Eve): "Well, that is definitely not Juliette. Not the good one or the bad one." ("The Believer")
- (To Monroe): "I miss Juliette, but I'm sure glad we have Eve on our side right now." ("The Beginning of the End")
