As V for Vendetta begins, Rosemary Almond is the quiet, timid wife of Derek Almond. When V murders her husband, Rosemary is denied a pension from the government, and risks falling into poverty. Desperate to survive, she’s forced to use her beauty and her sexuality—first turning to Roger Dascombe (who may or may not be propositioning her sexually) and then working as a showgirl in the Kitty Kat Killer Club. In the end, Rosemary turns on the Leader, the man responsible for denying her a pension, for revenge.
