A few years after his divorce from Adeline Kane, Slade Wilson - the mercenary known as Deathstroke, The Terminator - took a search-and-rescue mission under contract. Slade met Lillian "Sweet-Lilli" Worth, an Oriental clan princess whose life fell in ruins after her kingdom was destroyed by a war in the Far East. It was Slade's mission to bring Lilli from war-torn Cambodia to Thailand, where she would have relative freedom.
The mission was successful; During the journey, Slade and Lillian became lovers as well. Slade and Lillian remained in contact, embarking an an on/off love affair whenever their paths crossed. During one of their trysts, Slade impregnated Lillian, who later gave birth to Rose Worth. Lillian kept Rose a secret from Slade, rationalizing it was in the child's best interest to do so.
Lillian eventually settled outside New York City, where she established a brothel and lived in luxury. Despite the environment, Rose was raised with other children her age and was schooled by private tutors. She not only received a happy childhood, but was also taught how to defend herself.
When Slade was injured and on the lam from the law, Lillian took him in and nursed his wounds. It was at this time that Wintergreen met 14-year-old Rose Worth and suspected Slade was her father.
The Madison family adopted Rose and she enjoys a short period of a normal life until a new man assuming the identity of the Ravager (who was later revealed to be Slade's half-brother, Wade DeFarge) was hunting down Slade's friends and loved ones, killing his informant Maurice, and his tech supplier, Squirrel. Ravager abducted Rose Worth when he discovered her connection to Slade. As Ravager tortured Rose, he also revealed to her that Slade Wilson was her father. Meanwhile, Wintergreen and Lillian launched a rescue attempt. Eventually, Lillian and Wintergreen reached their quarry in the snow-covered wilderness in the Adirondack Mountains. To save her daughter, Lillian attempted to run over Ravager in a Jeep – but her Jeep careened off a cliff and exploded. Lilian was presumed dead, but her body was never recovered. Wintergreen and Rose were able to elude Ravager and escaped.
Rose wakes to find her self in Deathstroke's lair where he offers to train her. She accepts to find her first task is to kill Wade Defrage. She does without mercy and takes his name, Ravager. Little does she know that Slade has drugged her with the same serum that gives him his powers. Also unknown to Rose is that her father had hired Wade DeFrage to kill her adopive family in an attempt to draw her closer. Slade thought it would be best if Rose had nothing to do with him, since he felt he brought about the death of both his sons. Fearing he would not be a good father, he left Rose primarily in the care of Wintergreen, who was prepared to adopt the girl. Slade, however, had already made arrangements with Sarge Steel to place her in protective custody with the Titans. Sarge Steel - who oversaw the group during this stage - saw potential in the young girl, although he also found her to be prone to violence and a bit unstable.
During her brief time on the team, Rose befriended some of the younger members of the team. During a training exercise with Damage, Rose was injured and almost fell into a coma. As Damage brought her to the hospital, her meta-gene powers kicked in. Rose had an extensive precognitive vision where she saw her father's future. She appeared as an astral form, witnessing her Deathstroke's future unfold – a future where he was caught in a never-ending drudge match with Hawkman. During this jaunt, Rose was able to project her astral form and inhabit the body of someone in the future, similar to her brother Jericho's ability. Before Rose could explore these abilities further, she recovered at the hospital – thus ending her dream vision.
Still reeling over the death of her mother, Rose became sullen and somewhat reckless. Fellow Titan Donna Troy tried to reach out to her, but Rose rejected her. Fellow Titan Impulse developed a crush on Rose but she was oblivious to his affections. Rose was not a Titan for very long; She eventually left the team to embark on her own. It is believed she stayed with her mother's friend.
Rose Wilson later aided the Titans again during the Technis Imperative conflict, which involved the Justice League as well as all Titans, past and present. The two teams eventually worked together to save the earth and former Titans teammate, Victor Stone (Cyborg).
When the Titans later threw a surprise party for Donna Troy, Rose Wilson was in attendance. Roy Harper offered Rose a job as nanny to his daughter Lian. She accepted and served as Lian's nanny for a time.
A Hero again
Since that time, Rose has broken free of her father's control with some help from Nightwing. After the serum ran its course, Rose returned to sanity and was granted membership in the Teen Titans at the request of Nightwing. Once a dangerous and unstable adversary, it may be some time before all her teammates fully trust her. While Rose initially clashed with Wonder Girl, she also found a trusted friend in new member, Kid Devil.
After Raven successfully brought back Jericho by using one of Brother Blood's resurrection rituals, he was cleansed of any evil influence. At this time, Jericho rejoined the Teen Titan and met his sister, Rose, for the first time.
Rose got to show where her loyalties stood when the Titans Tower got breached by the Terror Titans. They villainous team was sent by their leader The Clock King to retrieve the Titans but Ravager would not go down with out a fight. Showing a great display of heart and fighting ability Ravager was able to hold them long enough for Wendy and Marvin to escape the Tower before it blew up. It was believed that Ravager was dead when the rest of the Titans arrived back at the tower but Robin was able to figure out a way that she could have escaped. Still unsure the Titans went to meet the Clock King and I was shown that Ravager, with a destroyed costume was following behind them in the shadows proving that she still lived. Clock King, while they were fighting, offered her a spot on his team but she abruptly declined his offer.
After taking down the first headquarters of the Terror Titans, Rose and the Teen Titans returned to Titans Tower to do repairs. While there, Rose overheard Cassandra and Tim talking about how they thought Rose was out of control (for the most part). Rose took this offensively and left the Teen Titans to join up with the Terror Titans much to the disdain of the other Terror Titans. She also has entered herself in the Darkside Tournament though refuses to kill anyone, suggesting that she isn't all as bad as everyone wants to think. Thus far, she has proved to be one of the toughest combatants in the Darkside Tournament and in the Terror Titans. Only time will tell if she chooses to continue to walk down this road or not.
Powers & Abilities
Rose's powers include limited precognitive abilities which may blossom into much more. She is sometimes able to use her precognitive abilities to 'see' her opponent's next moves, although her visions come and go. Rose is a skilled martial arts expert, with enhanced agility, speed, strength and endurance. She is also very skilled in the use of a bo staff.
In one instance, was able to have an extensive precognitive vision where she saw her father's (Deathstroke's) future. During this jaunt, Rose was able to project her astral form and inhabit the body of someone in the future (similar to her brother Jericho's ability).
Recently, in Terror Titans #1, Rose had been given an inhaler by Clock King to trigger her precognitive abilities. Therefore, she can now use them pretty much at will. In Terror Titans #2, Rose suggested to Clock King that she could see as far as weeks into the future possibly implying that soon her precognitive skills will develop into even more.
