"That girl could be the answer to the torments of a lifetime for a lot of people, including me." - Rosemary's purpose into finding Celeste.
Rosemary Reed is the main and playable character in the upcoming game Remothered: Tormented Fathers.
Curious, smart, and with a high resolve, Rosemary is a 35 year old woman with ambiguous intentions. Her true reasons for investigating the disappearance of Celeste and the mysterious past of her guardian, Dr. Richard Felton, are unknown.
"I believe in people's willpower, everything else is not God, but ineptitude or mankind's cruelty."
- Rosemary's main philosophy.With her philosophy in mind, the fact that she smokes doesn't come as a surprise.
Rosemary is an atheist - and a very skeptical one. She disowns her past - events turned her into a disbeliever of personal relations. Rosemary feels bad if other people suffer, but she always puts her needs before everything else. She is not a proud person - she almost feels uncomfortable with herself. However, she knows that she is what she is thanks to her past.
Rosemary listens to jazz music. She looks very classy and sophisticated, but the real Rosemary can be very different. And in fact she is not narcissistic by any means. Rosemary is a very mysterious lady. The way she dresses reflects the complexity of her multifaceted personality.
If asked about her professional career, she will probably be very elusive. Selfish without being self-indulgent, Rosemary has a void inside, due to a guilty feeling that makes a match with melancholy.
She knows her limits, but she goes beyond them as she wants to give herself a chance to put an end on her nightmares. She's ambiguous and shady. Rosemary is not the traditional heroine, she is far from being spotless and fearless.
Her motives are intentionally ambiguous, leaving her true purpose as a mystery to be uncovered during the game's story, and quite possibly, Rosemary Reed is not her real name.
- At one point, Rosemary Reed was intended to be the game's villain, but when the story was rewritten her role was changed to become the protagonist for the first chapter of the trilogy.
- Much like Richard and Celeste, Rosemary's design and backstory has undergone multiple changes during development, though she has always kept a distinctly sophisticated appearance.
- Her appearance was somewhat inspired by Jodie Foster in her role as Clarice Starling in the 1991 adaptation of The Silence of the Lambs.
- Her name is an homage to Roman Polanski's horror film, Rosemary's Baby.
- Rosemary's style and personality is an homage to female characters from big screen such as Tippi Hedren's character from Hitchcock's The Birds. and Naomi Watts' character from Lynch's Mulholland Drive.
