As a young girl, Rosalina met Luma in a rusted starship. (presumbly the starshroom) Luma was crying because he was looking for his mother, who was coming for him on a comet. Rosalina promised to wait for her with Luma. One night, Rosalina looked for Luma's mother with her father's telescope. When they could not find her anywhere, Rosalina decided to look for Luma's mother themselves. Rosalina and Luma fixed the rusty starship and set sail to the starry sky.
Many days passed, and Rosalina got hungry. She looked at her packed essentials, but realizes she forgot to bring water. Luma then gets some star bits and asks Rosalina if she wanted some. She agrees to have some star bits, and she and Luma began to collect star bits with Rosalina's net.
After traveling much, the pair finally found a comet, but Luma's mother was nowhere to be found there. Rosalina and Luma decided to rest in the comet for a while.
One night, Rosalina had a dream about her mother. When she asks her mother where she is going, her mother tells her to not fret since she is not going anywhere, and is always watching over her, like the sun in the day and the moon in the night. Rosalina then sadly asks her what about when it rains, and she can't see the sun or the moon. Her mother thinks for a moment before responding that she will turn into a star in the clouds and wait for her tears to dry. Afraid she will never see her mother again, Rosalina started crying. Luma started crying as well, before Rosalina attempted to calm Luma down. She then says to Luma that she will take care of him.
Rosalina and Luma decided to make a house of their own. They realize the house was too big for just the two of them, and Rosalina knew it would be enough if her father, brother, and mother were here. That night, she falls asleep in the starship, clutching her favorite stuffed bunny close to her heart.
One day, Rosalina meets other Lumas from an apricot planet. They all start calling Rosalina "Mama", which confused Rosalina. She decided to take all of them to the new house, after she finished naming them all.
After seeing the 100th comet, Rosalina wondered if her home planet was still as blue as it was. She used her father's telescope to find a terrace, where she used to go stargazing when she was at her home planet. She remembered the memories she spent with her father, brother, and mother, but she suddenly burst into tears when she remembered her mother.
Luma tried to comfort Rosalina by saying her mother is part of her, but Rosalina could not stop her tears. That was when Luma transformed into a comet that can carry everyone on this journey. Rosalina was surprised, so the Lumas told her about their destiny as Lumas. Rosalina hugged the Lumas and decided to no longer have star bits on her eyes.
One day, a new Luma was welcomed to the new family of Rosalina. She and the Lumas made a star cake together, and Rosalina smiled and thought to herself that she accepted her new family, and that she will stay with them until they are ready to leave home. And when they do leave, she will see them off with a smile, since that's what makes a mother happiest. That night, when Rosalina lay down to sleep, she saw a soft light which reminded her of the planet she once called home. She thought she could go back home once every hundred years to "nap in her favorite sleeping nook".
Super Mario Galaxy
During one of her centennial visits to the Mushroom Kingdom, the Comet Observatory is attacked by Bowser, who steals the observatory's Power Stars and Grand Stars. Rosalina later appeared to Mario/Luigi after Peach is kidnapped. In order to aid Mario/Luigi she gives him Luma, the same one seen with Peach at the Star Festival. Once Mario/Luigi collects the first Grand Star, she explains to him that Bowser stole the Power Stars and requests that he help get them back.
After Mario/Luigi collects enough stars to power the ship, Rosalina flies the observatory to the center of the universe for the final confrontation with Bowser. After the Lumas sacrifice themselves to stop the giant black hole created by the sun thus, erasing the game's events from history, and thus, resetting the timeline.
Rosalina appears to Mario/Luigi and explains the "cycle of life" to him before he awakens at Peach's Castle. She then proceeds to transform the Comet Observatory into a comet, and shoots off into the stars.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Rosalina is captured by Bowser frequently in the game but does not reveal her identity until the end. Where she reveals to have met Lubba before.
When Mario and Luigi collect 120 stars in the game and defeat the final boss again, she will be in her library reading the story of the game to Lumas, she will reveal that there are green stars in the game.
After the player gets all green stars, and completes "The Perfect Run", Rosalina is met at the end of "The Perfect Run" and thanks the player for getting all the stars. She joins Mario above Starship Mario.

Rosalina has been a playable character since Mario Kart Wii and was classified as a Cruiser Weight or Heavyweight character due to her tall height. She has the same biker suit along with Peach and Daisy while riding a bike in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8.

Mario & Sonic Series
Like most other human Mario characters Rosalina has blue eyes, though hers are more cyan in color. Only her left eye is visible from a directly frontal view as her particularly large bang of her hair hides her right eye. She has peach-colored defined lips, and long platinum-blonde hair that reaches to her waist. While she was young, according to her storybook, her hair was something more like a red or strawberry-blonde, which had similarly happened to Peach due to NES limitations. Her primary outfit consists of a turquoise long-sleeved gown that bares her shoulders, along with a silver crown with four gems on it, a sliver star-shaped brooch, gold star-shaped earrings, and silver high heels. She notably appears in this outfit when playing golf, making her one of two girls (White Mage the other) to participate in a primarily sports-themed game wearing her heels (though she keeps the full-length dress, whereas White Mage sports a mini dress-like garment). Her Super Smash Bros. design adds glittery star outlines around the bottom of her dress. Like Peach and Daisy, she has a biker suit when riding bikes or ATVs in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8. Hers is primarily white and teal, to differentiate hers from those of Peach and Daisy. Like with Daisy, her hair needs to be flowing up to see the heart-shaped decal on the back of the suit. Her primary sports outfit is akin to the sporty mini dresses of Peach and Daisy (though, again, teal), but with what appears to be white leggings instead of the other two girls' socks. Her swimwear (as seen in the fifth Mario and Sonic game) is based on those of Peach and Daisy (though teal again), but tweaked, along with sleeves to resemble her usual dress.
Rosalina has made protecting the cosmos her mission in life. She is a loving figure, caring for her children diligently. She still misses her mother, who apparently died years ago. She also uses the phrase "May the stars shine down on you." as a way of saying "Good luck." She is known to be exceptionally intelligent.

|“||Do you hear the baby stars? These newborns will grow up to become galaxies someday. When stars die, they turn to stardust and scatter across the cosmos. Eventually, that stardust reforms to create a new star..and so the cycle of life continues. But the cycle never repeats itself in quite the same way... So..you'll see.||„|

But I knew we'd see each other again. Because... There is a force that binds us, defying even time and space... Not even the laws of the universe can stop it. I knew its gentle pull would prevail. It is the desire to be reunited with someone who is important to you. That pull is what brought us together. We have come through so much to meet again. This is not some mere whim of the stars... I am sure of that. Mario... Thank you for returning this child to me...||„|
