Little is known of what becomes of the Roses of Jima when their beauty fades and bodies lose the firmness of youth.

It is told in hushed rumour that she can see into the future, knowing the actions of men before they have even realised themselves. To anger or harm her is as foolish and unlucky as slurring the Five themselves.
