The Iron Rose Stylist Legion is a group of stylists led by Queen Elle of Pigeon Kingdom. They are best known for traveling around Miraland committing various crimes in order to gain access to exclusive designs and materials.
Year 676 Edit
Four years after the Nine-Day War, 20-year-old Elle assumed the throne and started the age of the "Iron Blood Reign". A group of 10 elite stylists, the Iron Roses, was organized by Queen Elle to seize precious clothes parts across the whole land.
Year 680 Edit
After being transported to Miraland, Nikki first encountered the Iron Rose when she learned Mela had stolen a design belonging to Lunar, which was for the Stringless Guqin. Nikki managed to beat Mela in a styling battle and retrieved the design for Lunar, but Mela gave her the warning to beware the Iron Rose.
They next became an issue when Nikki and her friends traveled to Moonlit City, where they discovered Lunar had yet again been the victim of an attack. Mela had robbed the Silk Shop in order to gain the spices used to make Cloud Calico. However, it was later revealed that Lunar, Lunar's mother, and the Mayor of Moonlit City had set up an elaborate plan to hoodwink Mela and made it seem as though Mela had won, when in fact they had protected the vast majority of Moonlit City's treasures.
At the Fantasy Styling Contest, a number of higher-ups such as Orlando and Royce suspected that Elle would yet again use her Iron Rose for a nefarious plot. However, though Sherry and Mela were there, it was Nidhogg that used the context to stage a rebellion. Sherry and Mela managed to escape as the contest turned into chaos.
After traveling to the Republic of Wasteland, Nikki and her friends met yet another member of the Iron Rose: Ransa, who had taken control of the Pota tribe and unseated Tuda's father as head of the tribe. Tuda and Nikki managed to defeat her and Ransa did leave. Tuda's father revealed once she was gone that she was part of the Iron Rose.
Still traveling through the Republic of Wasteland, Nikki and her friends, including Ace, encountered Sherry. Sherry told Ace she needed to have a private conversation with her, and though Nikki and her friends were extremely wary, when Sherry mentioned Ace's purple hair, she went with her without complaint.
The next time the Iron Rose acted, it was as allies of Nikki rather than foes. Queen Elle, who views the Pigeon Kingdom as a "peacekeeper" within Miraland politics, instructed them to fly an airship to Cloud City from their base outside Lor River City in order to help Nikki defeat Nidhogg. Sherry, Mela, and Ransa tried to get Debbie to come with them, but she was lost in a book, so they left without her and brought Nikki the Dawnblade. With this, Nikki easily defeated Nidhogg, and the Iron Rose took her back to Lor River City and parted ways with her.
One of the Iron Rose Styling Legion's tasks was to find materials in order to craft one of King Sayet's relics, which was a design that required a special material. In order to work towards this goal, the Iron Rose went into the mountains of Pigeon Kingdom; however, they were unable to find the material. Because of this, Elle made the decision to disband the Iron Rose.
The members of the Iron Rose reacted differently to their disbandment. Though Ransa was confused and depressed at first, she refused to give up. Instead, she began to work together with Nikki in order to seek out more of Sayet's designs and find out their secrets. With Nikki's encouragement, she also began to feel there was another reason for the disbandment that Elle wasn't telling them, and vowed to discover it as well.
Sherry took the news the hardest. She was still loyal to Elle and did not want to disobey her orders, but after running into Ransa and Nikki in Oren, she helped them sneak into the city to further their goals.
