Mansion of E Wiki

Rosemary Ripley is a very singular young woman who arrives at the Mansion of E at the very beginning of the comic. Although she arrived with Mortimer, she has spent the majority of her time since arriving with Sylvester.

Near the end of the Endless Day, Rosemary passes a Quizslab test and decides to stay(E.png). She is appointed(E.png) Taskmistress. Rosemary and Sylvester decide to hide her identity(E.png), so she takes the name Rosemary Aurora Dapple (using her father's last name).

Rosemary can apparently communicate with magical devices. She visited(E.png) the Quiet Room and warned the contents to behave and received a response(E.png). This conversation was watched by Frowgler who supported Rosemary's statement(E.png).

Rosemary warns Sylvester to not repeat(E.png) her middle name of 'Imogene', but the reason for the warning isn't given.


Rosemary's most notable characteristic is almost total fearlessness. She is remarkably impulsive. Although capable of frightening levels of violence, she does not seem to enjoy hurting other people. She is a very skilled combatant, quite intelligent, a quick learner and a skilled juggler. Although at first she was overwhelmed by the strangeness of every aspect of life in the Mansion, she has come to terms with the situation with remarkable quickness.


Rosemary is known among magical creatures:



  • Elwin Ripley (his father is Dwight) and Hettie Sandhall Ripley, from long-time Gnomin farming families.
  • Jasper Pilkington and Verity Wolfert Pilkington, from Genny.

Rosemary's father was Connor Sandhall Dapple and her mother was Paprika Pilkington. Paprika moved from Genny to Moonin province when they married. Rosemary was born(E.png) on Dyngusmyles Island. They died at sea while Rosemary was a very small child. Her parents went to Genny for the funeral of Verity(E.png). They were heading back to Gnomin from Genny when a storm sunk their ship(E.png). Rosemary was under quarantine(E.png) with jibjib pox. She barely has any memory of her parents. She was brought up by Aunt Eva and her ex-bodyguard/friend Zeke. Zeke taught her to use a sword.

Once she grew up, she decided to leave her home-island. She spent a great deal of time traveling and taking up various jobs. She was a farmhand from time to time, she "sharpened pencils" (likely means that she was an assistant) for a man named Erwing. She was even on rigging duty on a ship named Oshinoxtra.

She met(E.png) Scratch and eventually found gainful employment within Hack N' Slash mercenary company, where also she received training and some education.

There, she became a caravan guard disguised as a juggler. Her superior was Baldy. What happened to cause her to leave them is revealed in the comic in 2016/2017.

During the Endless Day Rosemary ends up under the control(E.png) of Mortimer. (At one point she is told to act like a dog(E.png) and Sylvester says Mortimer really needs to take her for walks.

Mortimer releases control of Rosemary in an appropriate manner (to the surprise(E.png) of Myrrh) and tells her to think for herself(E.png).

Myrrh believes Mortimer's order is important(E.png) as "people" will try to convince her to make inappropriate decisions. These "people" include these "local dignitaries":

After returning from the basement and dinner(E.png), Sylvester formally gives Rosemary the Taskmistress position with Mortimer as witness.

Rosemary then asks Amos to show her(E.png) the library and picks up some books to read(E.png).

On her way back to her room Rosemary hears(E.png) something from Quiet Room and talks(E.png) to the occupants. She describes her situation(E.png) with them and threatens(E.png) to thrown them in the Great Chasm if they cause problems. Frowgler was watching. He comes out of hiding after Rosemary leaves and supports her threat(E.png).
