Who is Rosalind in Fate: The Winx Saga? Let’s get the character explained and consider what we know about her so far.

Netflix has already unveiled a wealth of exciting titles in 2021 and Fate: The Winx Saga currently sits atop their Top 10.

The streaming service released six episodes of the young-adult fantasy drama on Friday, January 22nd 2021 and audiences have made quick work of them.

Developed by Brian Young, the series is actually inspired by the Nickelodeon animated series Winx Club, which was created by Iginio Straffi. It premiered in 2010 and ran for eight seasons up until 2019, a year after the live-action series we’ve just witnessed was announced.

The animation centred on a fairy warrior named Bloom, played in the new series by Abigail Cowen.

As you’ll know, Rosalind’s connection to Bloom is important, but who exactly is she? Let’s consider what we know so far…

Fate: The Winx Saga: Who is Rosalind?

Although Rosalind was introduced to audiences in episode 3, her role in the narrative spans much further back.

Looking back through the episodes, Bloom began grappling with her powers after experiencing a serious accident. Searching for help and answers, she went to the Otherworld and began attending Alfea Academy.

Bloom realised that she was a Changeling who was supposedly swapped at birth. However, she didn’t know the reasons why or the true identity of her parents.

In episode 3, she has a vision which presents to her a stranger’s face. Only after research does she discover that the woman in her vision is Rosalind.

Approaching Miss Dowling, Bloom learns that Rosalind was the school’s headmistress before she died. Yet, after speaking with Beatrix, our protagonist is told that Rosalind is actually alive.

The two then embark on a quest to free Rosalind from her confines, but it turns out that Rosalind set fire to the city where her real parents lived, in hopes of eradicating non-fairy magic. On the other hand, it’s then revealed that they weren’t actually her parents, but rather, the town was rife with blood witches who stole Bloom as a baby.

It was Rosalind who rescued her from their clutches, handing her over to safe and human hands.

The season was on track to wrap Rosalind up nicely, but audiences were left conflicted with the way things ended with her character. As highlighted by Elite Daily, she released the Unburned Ones into the Otherworld and proceeded to murder Miss Dowling.

That’s what we know so far, and season 2 is sure to add much more depth to her character and motivations.
