Whispering Roses (Murmura Rossa) are darkness-inhibiting rosaceous flowers encountered all around Ærria. Whispering Roses are silver-white in colour and grow in networks of uninterrupted vines.
Whispering Roses are wrongly described as “white, glow-in-the-dark” flowers, when in fact their special pigment, arrestis lumene, merely absorbs the surrounding darkness.
One of the most distinct characteristics of Whispering Roses is their ability to record emotionally-charged sounds and fragmentary lines of dialogue. Once recorded, the roses will whisper the message down the chain, from one petalled-mouth to the next, in a twisted game version of “Broken Telephone” or “Chinese Whispers”.
