"Me crew embodies the true spirit o' piracy—freedom t' do whatever ye damn well please, and no one t' answer to but yer good self...and me, o' course."

Though Captain Rhoswen was born in a settlement in western La Noscea, she left upon reaching her fifteenth nameday, fleeing from her violent drunk and letch of a father. Forced to live in the back alleys of Limsa Lominsa as a beggar, the Midlander girl learned of the Sanguine Sirens and began working for the crew. Having discovered the family she longed for amongst the Sirens, Rhoswen became a proper deckhand, and her devotion (in addition to a few timely deaths) eventually saw her elevated to the captain's chair.

Now in her thirty-sixth year, Rhoswen is an intriguing figure. She continues to see the first leader of the Sirens as a second mother, and remains attached to the old ways of the pirates from her example. Some have speculated this opinion has led to her fiery hatred for Captain Carvallain and his Krakens.

Ye won't find no mollycoddles or ministers in my crew—just real buccaneers what know how to stand up for 'emselves! A far cry from Carvallain's band o' dandies—make no bones about it!
Etymology

A likely etymology comes from Welch, where "rhos" means rose and "wen" can mean white or blessed, though her full name may simply mean rosen. This fits with the theme of redness surrounding Rhoswen's crew.
