Horie Asako, known as Rosalind, is one of the 10,000 people trapped in Sword Art Online and is a supporting character in the fan fiction Misfortune Made Her Sword. She began the game as a solo player, and joined Renee's party shortly before the first floor was cleared.


Rosalind is a short, slim girl with brown hair, often braided back, and bangs that fall in her face. Early in the game she wears a white tunic and brown leggings under a simple iron armour set composed of a breast plate, tassets and greaves.


Rosalind is a straightforward person and tends to approach conflict resolution with a pointed quip and passive-aggression, or, failing that, physical blows. Among the members of her guild she is the most outwardly enthusiastic about clearing the game, focusing first and foremost on leveling and (ever since her close call in the first-floor labyrinth) gaining knowledge on various aspects of the game. As a result, Renee's initial stance to stay on the first few floors is one that frustrates her constantly.




Arc 1: Into the Fire



Ursa Minor


Rosalind and Renee didn't get off to the best start. After joining the other girl's party, the two develop a harmless, albeit mildly physical, rivalry. They both appear to enjoy getting a rise out of the other.


After joining Renee's party, the two develop a quiet, amicable relationship.

  • Rosalind's friend Sayuri came up with her IGN.
  • Her IGN is a reference to the chemist Rosalind Franklin.
  • She was the one who suggested forming a guild, as well as the one who designed the guild's emblem, following its inception.


  • "So it's official, then? You're really leaving."
  • "No, you're right. You weren't looking. You were staring."
  • "Have we stopped to consider that this plan completely sucks?"
  • "You said to do as I pleased. So I did."
  • (To Renee) "I'll drop spiders in your bed while you're sleeping."
  • "Do you... do you want a hug?"
  • "I don't hate her, I disagree with her. There's a difference."
  • "I have many things. None of them help me."
  • (Okazaki: No, just making you crazy.) "Like that's hard. Feel proud."
