* HeroOfAnotherStory: Rose Madder, [[AntiHero possibly]]. She seems to be on the [[OrderVsChaos Order side of things cosmically speaking]], which is [[CrapsackWorld as good as cosmic beings ever get in Stephan King's world]]. She's desperately trying to complete some epic scale quest before dying, and it's large and complex enough that her role in helping Rosie isn't even really a blip.
