"I've never met her, so...I don't know. But I'm inclined to trust my husband. His entire life is about keeping people safe. Rachel's extremely fortunate to have him as her father." — Rose to Chloe in "Hell Is Empty"

Rose Amber is James Amber's wife and Rachel Amber's step-mother in Life is Strange: Before the Storm.


Rose appears friendly and welcoming, especially to Chloe. However, she may come off as humorless, since at Chloe's several attempts to make jokes, Rose does not seem to react. Instead, she says, "You are a riot, Chloe." This could also be a simple difference in sense of humor, since the jokes Chloe tells are play on words. For example, when Rose says that the glasses are in the china cabinet, Chloe replies, "How am I supposed to get to China?"


Rose Amber has short brown hair and brown eyes. She wears an elbow-length red jacket over a cream-colored shirt with a white floral pattern, ruffles along the bottom, and a red hem along the top. She wears dark brown pants that end above her ankles and cream-colored shoes with light brown heels. She has a white necklace with a round pendant and a white bracelet on her left hand.


The following is what Chloe Price wrote about Rose in her journal:

Rose, Rachel's mom, also seems pretty decent. She certainly really loves Rachel and James. Poor lady.

Chloe finds out that Rose Amber is assisting Blackwell's production of The Tempest and is among those thanked in the playbill. Rachel wears the costume that her step-mother sewed for her role as Prospera.

Episode Two - "Brave New World"

Rose is first seen at the very beginning of the episode, alongside James Amber and Rachel in Principal Wells' office. Later on in the episode, she is seen again at the Amber household after Chloe and Rachel decide they are going to leave Arcadia Bay and both Rose and James invite Chloe to stay for dinner at their house. Rose has Chloe set the table, including asking what James would like to drink. When at dinner, Rose asks Chloe if she and Rachel are in any of the same classes. As Rose was present when Chloe was excluded it seems an odd question, whether she forgot or it is a continuity error is unknown. Rose is welcoming to Chloe and says that the Amber house is always open to her. When an argument breaks out between James, Rachel and Chloe, Rose defends Chloe and is upset at her husband for being rude to Chloe. She is upset to learn that James is cheating on her. Rose, along with James and Chloe, are shocked when Rachel smashes the table.
