The Splicer model "Rosebud" is a female worker frantically looking for her lost child, who might have been taken to be made into a Little Sister. She cries out to her child, or for her child not to be taken from her, when she is not singing a broken version of Amazing Grace. Rosebud is positively ruthless and quite deceptive by often setting traps. She also frequently refers to the player as "monster." She speaks with a slight Eastern European accent.

Behind the Scenes[]

  • In a few locations in the Hephaestus level, there are slightly tweaked corpses of the Rosebud Splicer. It has the normal body and face, but it has the 1920s shingle bob-style hair of a Baby Jane model on top of the 1940s-style curls of the Rosebud model.
