Rachael Thorne, also known as Rose, is one of the main characters of Entry Point and the mission coordinator of the player for multiple missions. She plays an important role in the story. Her codename, Roselin, is french for "Finch" which fits with the bird naming pattern for other characters.
Rose is first introduced in the Black Dawn cutscene, where she plays a major role as she is the only one that Jackdaw leaves alive. In the following missions, she is rescued by The Freelancer in The Blacksite and then accompanies them for multiple years as their mission coordinator. Later on, the Freelancer finds out that she was actually a double agent and was working for Phoenix the whole time. They last meet her during The Lakehouse after which we learn about her death during Retribution.
Rose has firebrick colored hair along with a brown jacket, black pants, and brown shoes and wields the Raven given to her by the Freelancer in The Blacksite. She is very fond of thermite and explosions as pointed out by multiple lines when placing thermite, and blowing up panic room doors.
Initially in The Blacksite, Rose is seen to be rude and snobby. However, as she warms up to the protagonist, she is seen to be optimistic and takes most missions rather lightly. Although we see a much more serious Rose during the cutscenes Rose and Critical. She enjoys her time as a Mission Coordinator, however, she does reminisce about her times as an operative. It is also known that she was trained by Jackdaw.
Rachael Thorne was born in Monaco on May 21st, 1986. She came from a semi-wealthy family and was a self-taught hacker.
