Chairman Rose is a tall and handsome tan-skinned man with black hair, green eyes, and neatly trimmed facial hair. Despite his svelte appearance, he also has a round, portly belly (although it's barely visible when he wears his regular attire). Clothing-wise, Rose has one ear pierced and usually wears a sharp gray business suit, as befits his status and wealth. His suit consists of a gray vest with numerous black buttons, a gray overcoat with a single gold button, a white shirt, and a red tie. He also wears classy gray pants that match his suit, along with a gold and black belt, pointed red and black shoes, and a gold watch.
Rose seems to be approachable and amiable, but it appears that he has a darker agenda. Although he mostly acknowledges potential Trainers, he is also rather arrogant and impulsive, such as trying to re-enact the Darkest Day just to prevent the resources of Galar from depleting without putting the people's lives into calculation, and ignores the consequences of uncontrollably Dynamaxed Pokémon. He is best described a someone who can be quite ruthless in order to achieve a certain goal, and can be manipulative as well. Unlike his game counterpart, who is well-meaning but unintentionally causes chaos, he is shown to be more overtly evil in the anime.
As a child, Rose once experienced the death of his miner father, who died untimely in a mining accident. This tragic incident had significantly impacted his perspective on gathering the resources of Galar, which eventually shaped his obsession on Eternatus and his very concept of gathering infinite power.

Relying on Galar's abundant resources, he soon became the chairperson and founder of the Macro Cosmos company, and trained many talented Trainers, including Leon. He even invented the Dynamax Band with Professor Magnolia, as well as researching how to convert particles into energy sources. However, Magnolia saw through his ruthlessness, and later decided to quit his research project.

Rose was seen at the Energy Plant alongside Oleana, observing the capsule containing large quantities of energy. Although technician had warned them that the particles were going to be out of control, he still praised the particles' power as they were exerted from the device and scattered all over Galar. In his car, when Oleana reported that the particles had caused Pokémon to Dynamax uncontrollably, he deemed this as an inevitable sacrifice.
When Oleana asked him whether they should cut the supply of the particles, Rose declined her request and called Eternatus as the savior of Galar. He and Oleana later met up with Leon and encountered Ash for the first time and invited Ash for a dinner. Although he offered to take Ash under his wing, Ash turned him down.
After Eternatus had escaped from the Galar Energy Plant, Chairman Rose confronted Ash and Leon, explaining his plan and having a double battle with them. After he lost the battle and Oleana lost to Goh, the two went into hiding and were never seen again.
