“She becomes about as tall as Raye”

Illustrator’s comment:

“Because she’s a rival entity to Raye, I designed her around cold, black colors in contrast to Raye’s warm white colors. And because Roze was created by analyzing Raye, I wanted her to give an impression of “she’s not the original” and “fleeting”. Rather than making her hair pure black, I made it a faintly colored gray (even fainter at the tips). I drew her to create an impression that “she rarely shows emotions, but as soon as she gets in her base suit, she immediately becomes belligerent”, so her first appearance became ‘Sky Striker Maneuver – Scissors Cross’”.
