Description: Rose Tico was a female human who served in the Resistance as a maintenance worker during their conflict with the First Order, whom Tico had hated since she was a child. Tico’s older sister, Paige, was a gunner in the Resistance.
Rose Tico, her older sister Paige and her parents Hue and Thanya grew up on Hays Minor, a impoverished mining colony in the Otomok system. Rose and her sister trained in their grandmother Etta’s Z-95 Headhunter simulation. During one of their simulations, Rose crashed. She and her family would watch holodramas, some of which included fathiers.
The First Order took over Hays Minor’s mines and forced Rose’s people to mine their planet’s resources to feed their war machine. Rose and Paige protected their parents and fellow citizens from the First Order and their mining pollution. Rose was able to blow up twelve OreDiggers and stop the First Order’s mining operations for three days. Her parents told her that she and Paige had to find the Resistance and join them in their fight against the First Order. Rose and Paige were welcomed into the Resistance by Admirals Gial Ackbar and Amilyn Holdo. The two of them joined the Resistance’s Cobalt Squadron. Rose eventually received news that the First order shelled her people to test the results. Having lost everything they had to the First Order, Rose and her sister committed themselves to the Resistance to avenge their homeworld. The two of them were approached by General Leia Organa, who offered them her condolences for the First Order’s genocide of Hays Minor. Organa told Rose and her sister that she would let them go after First Order on their own. However, the two sisters decided to stay, knowing, they could make a bigger impact on the First Order. Rose and Paige promised themselves that they would stop the First Order from pillaging and destroying other worlds.
After being transferred to the Resistance cruiser Raddus, Rose spent a long time reading through how it worked. Another mechanic named Lazslo mocked her by saying she never did any hard work, just sat there and read. Paige then told her to go to sleep, but Rose continued, stating that she had to keep reading as some commands were even in Calamarian. When First Order ships appeared and Poe Dameron was trapped outside the ship with the hangar door being unable to open, Rose helped him by figuring out the problem and opening the door. Everyone thanked her and in the end, all the reading paid off.
Rose Tico and her sister were both active fighters in General Leia Organa’s Resistance. Her older sister Paige was a gunner on the Resistance bomber Cobalt Hammer, which served as part of Cobalt Squadron. While Rose was a mechanic, both siblings were very close; they each wore matching pendants around their necks at all times. Paige died in the Battle of D’Qar, which greatly upset Rose, who was aboard the Raddus during the evacuation.
She was stationed in the Raddus’ escape-pod bay to prevent any deserters from escaping during the ensuing battle between the First Order and Resistance fleets. Finn, in an attempt to warn Rey of the critical danger that the Resistance now faced, attempted to leave the Raddus and make contact with her by stealing one of the escape pods.
When Rose caught Finn trying to escape she was initially flustered at meeting a “Resistance hero,” not realizing his intent to leave. When she did finally notice his packed bag, she stunned him with an electro-shock prod, put him on a cart and attempted to drag him to the brig, believing him to be one of many attempting to desert in light of the overwhelming odds the Resistance was facing.
When Finn came to, he tried to convince her that he was not merely a deserter but was trying to warn his friend of the direness of the Resistance’s situation, pointing out the fact that the Raddus would be tracked by the First Order through hyperspace, chasing them down until they ran out of fuel and were destroyed.
Rose realized that the First Order must be using a tracking device aboard the Supremacy. With Rose’s knowledge of mechanics and Finn’s knowledge of First Order ships, the two devised a plan to shut down the tracking device and allow the Raddus to escape into hyperspace. They informed Dameron of their plan to infiltrate the Supremacy, although they did not know how to decrypt the ship’s computer codes to be able to gain access to the ship itself. Dameron called Maz Kanata, who referred them to a “Master Codebreaker” that they would be able to find on Cantonica.
