Rose Red was an estate in Seattle, Washington built in 1908 by John Rimbauer.

Built on cursed land, Rose Red was thought to be "born bad", as even before it was completed, severel workmen died under strange circumstances.

The house itself -- or rather, the force behind it -- can be described as a parasite that drains both life and spiritual energy from its victims. First, it drains the victim's life energy by killing him/her and then feeds off of the spritual energy of the his/her spirit.

The force inside the house was very unpredictable. When the house was still occupied by the Rimbauer family, it took a victim whenever it pleased; its favorite victims were female. It took Ellen Rimbauer's daughter, April, to remind the woman who was really in charge.
