Rose resurfaces with an altered backstory and no mention of her employment by N.O.W.H.E.R.E. or subsequent appearances. She is established as the illegitimate daughter of Deathstroke by Lillian Worth, a Hmong woman Slade encountered in Cambodia, rather than Adeline Kane as initially believed. At a young age, she was rescued by Slade and Billy Wintergreen, Slade killing her mother in the process,[2] while Slade's child with Adeline, Joey, was kidnapped and had his throat slit. This resulted in a rift between Slade and Adeline and Adeline's strong dislike of Rose.[3] Not wanting her to be exposed to him and his lack of morality, Slade formed a secret agreement with Robin — in exchange for Slade not killing the Teen Titans in retaliation for Grant Wilson's death, Robin would train Rose in martial arts and act as a role model for his daughter, which Robin agreed to.[4]

Later in life, as a young adult, she worked as a bouncer and precognitive mercenary, accepting contracts to prevent other hitmen from carrying out theirs, the latter job in particular earning Slade's disdain.[5] When Slade learns of an assassination notice put out on her, he reappears in her life under the guise of wanting to help her track down the one responsible. Following an encounter with Batman, it is revealed that Deathstroke himself put the hit out on her as a means to bond with her.[6][7] Disillusioned with her already troubled relationship with her father, Rose instead decided to bond with her mother's family, seeking them out in Northern Vietnam, where she learned of the name her mother had given her, Xia,[8] before finding her mother's family in Minneapolis.[9] Despite being happy with her new family, Hosun Park sought her out for protection from her father, proposing to her under the impression that Deathstroke would not harm his daughter's husband.[10] Rose refused but, after learning that her new family was in actuality hired by Slade[11], accepted Hosun's proposal in order to spite her father, before she returned to Los Angeles for Joey's wedding to Etienne. During the ceremony, when confronted on his manipulation, Slade claimed he hired Rose's fake family so she could learn about her Hmong heritage. Soon after, an enraged Jericho attacked his father for supposedly killing Etienne, Rose being injured when she attempted to restrain her brother,[12] leaving her with a fractured skull.[13]
