History Edit


Events of Dead Space 3 Edit

Alongside his co-pilot, Locke, Rosen piloted the Eudora down to the New Horizons Lunar Colony to secure Isaac Clarke from the Circle Unitologists under Jacob Danik's command[1]. Under Captain Robert Norton's orders, he and Locke entered shockspace using the last known coordinates used by Ellie Langford. When they arrived at Tau Volantis, the ship is bombarded and severely damaged by the mines[2]. During the rush to safety, Rosen injured his leg and is incapacitated.

The destruction of the Eudora sent the room that Rosen and Locke are sealed inside hurling through space straight into the debris field of the Sovereign Colonies Armed Forces Flotilla. Norton, Clarke and Carver managed to evade the mines and regain control of the compartment. They took shelter inside the CMS Roanoke. On top of losing oxygen, Rosen is still losing blood from his injury in spite of Locke's attempts to stop it. Norton and Carver attended to the pilots while Isaac Clarke triangulated the location of Langford's S.O.S. signal.

Once Langford and her team are found, Rosen begrudgingly assisted in the salvage of parts for the CMS Crozier in order to get the shuttle running again. Once the Crozier is repaired, the group made the journey down to the planet. The debris and mines damaged the shuttle significantly. A hull breach killed Locke. Further deterioration of the ship as it plummeted further into the atmosphere resulted in a breach of the containment glass. Shrapnel from the ship is shaken loose and sliced Rosen's head in half.[3]

Isaac later came across Rosen's corpse buried underneath the snow in the remains of the Crozier on Tau Volantis. He frantically dug it up, initially believing it to be Ellie, but tossed it aside upon realizing that it is not.
