Rosa has a prickly personality to put it gently. She doesn't display a lot of emotion, other than anger, divulge about her past and rarely smiles, normally remaining very blank and expressionless. Many people in the Nine-Nine are actually afraid of her as she tends to be extremely dark as well quite sadistic. Examples prove this when she was asked to go to her "happy place" by Terry and Boyle during a court case and it was a cabin in the woods with her brutally killing a lawyer whom she was annoyed by. Aside from this Rosa has a very sarcastic and macabre sense of humour.

Details about her past are quite sketchy, mostly because she doesn't share easily. What is known however was she used to ba a star pupil at a ballet class until she quit. Even her best friend, Jake Perlata knows only three things about Rosa, one of them being she owns a shower. Despite seeming emotionless, Rosa does have outbursts, she has an anger problem and tends to be massively temperamental to her co-workers however aside from this she is quite emotionless

She also proves to be a natual-born leader and was able to successfully lead the Anti-Drug Task Force into bringing down an entire drug ring. Rosa does display happiness at times. She was clearly overjoyed when she discovered the Task Force was a success and had an emotional breakdown when she had broken up with her boyfriend.
