Rose is of Boer decent her family having been ranchers in Basutoland Africa. Her grand parents fled and immigrated to the united states shortly after World War 2. She grew up on a small but proud ranch owned by her family in Montana. She learned to work with animals and machinery at a young age and also how to hunt, fish and survive off of the land. As a young girl she showed a particular fondness for shooting and working on mechanical objects.

There here grandmother tested her then revealed to rose that she was also a Bastet (lioness) and began teaching her the ways of her people, her grandmother being the only other Bastet she has ever known.
When not helping her family run there ranch Rose went to a local trade school where she learned metalworking, CAD and machining along with some agricultural science and biology. While going to the school she joined and was later captain of the schools rifle marksmanship team. After graduation she became a apprentice gunsmith under a old master gunsmith for several years.
