Princess Rosalina (known as Princess Rosetta in Japan) is a character who has made her first appereance in Super Mario Galaxy. She is the adopted mother of the Luma. Princess Rosalina commands the Comet Observatory. She is a very powerful figure, as her duty is to protect the cosmos as well as the Luma.
Princess Rosalina's back-story is chronicled in a storybook told by her in the Comet Observatory's Library in Super Mario Galaxy. Nine chapters are unlocked throughout the game, and the last is unlocked by completing the game.
Super Mario Galaxy series
Super Mario Galaxy
During one of these centennial visits to Mushroom World, the Comet Observatory is attacked by Bowser, who steals the observatory's Power Stars and Grand Stars. Rosalina later appeared to Mario/Luigi after Peach is kidnapped. In order to aid Mario/Luigi she gives him a Luma, the same one seen with Princess Peach at the Star Festival. After Mario/Luigi collects enough stars to power the ship, Princess Rosalina flies the observatory to the center of the universe for the final confrontation with Bowser.
Super Mario Galaxy 2
Rosalina appears during the ending sequence of Super Mario Galaxy 2. Lubba reveals at this time that he and Princess Rosalina had met before, but the details of their meeting remain unknown. Princess Rosalina also frequently sends letters to the Baby Luma that's with Mario, but she does not reveal her identity in them.
When the player manages to get 120 Stars and beats the final boss again, a scene is shown, showing Princess Rosalina and her Lumas in the Library, revealing that she was telling the story of Super Mario Galaxy 2. Then, she decides to narrate how Mario (and Luigi) collect every Green Star to her Lumas. If Mario and Luigi manage to collect every single star in the game, and survive the Grandmaster Galaxy Daredevil Comet run, Princess Rosalina will thank and join the two on the Starship Mario.
Players can also use Princess Rosalina to represent their file on the file select screen. However, the Princess Rosalina avatar can only be used on save files in which the player has collected 120 stars, and unlocked the Green Star Prankster Comets.
This game also features a cosmic entity that highly resembles Princess Rosalina, known as the Cosmic Spirit.
Mario Kart Wii
Princess Rosalina makes her first playable appearence in Mario Kart Wii as an unlockable character. She can be unlocked by having a save file for Super Mario Galaxy and racing in 50 races, or the player can attain at least a 1 Star Rank for all Mirror Grand Prix Cups. Unlike Princess Peach and Princess Daisy, Princess Rosalina appears in the large weight class, while the other two are in the middle weight class. During races, a small yellow Luma circles around her at all times. When she wears a dress while riding karts, she wears a racing suit when on a bike. Princess Rosalina is the staff ghost character for Rainbow Road, and her racing symbol is a Grand Star.

Physical Description and Traits
Princess Rosalina is a human with teal-blue eyes and platinum-blond hair. She is portrayed to be very kind and caring.
Princess Rosalina has a very tall frame in terms of other characters. Princess Rosalina appears to have a similar body composition to Princess Peach, though she is taller and is even classified as a Large-Sized character as a result. Princess Rosalina's skin is very light, being a white pale tone. Most of her facial features and structure are similar to Princess Peach's, but not exactly the same. At first glance, it isn't easy to notice Princess Rosalina's sharper facial features. She has the same type of lips and nose as Princess Peach, though her mouth has more of a natural frown and a different pink-tone. Her eyes are similar to Princess Peach's as well, but are more slanted and have a blond shade to her lashes rather than black. Like the other main human characters, Princess Rosalina has blue eyes, though hers have a noticeably lighter hue.
Princess Rosalina's hair is depicted as a platinum-blonde, a much lighter blond than Princess Peach's yellow-blond. Princess Rosalina's hair style is very similar to Princess Peach's, as it consists of two separate flips on the sides in the same shape. Unlike Princess Peach's hair however, Princess Rosalina's includes one large bang (which covers her right eye completely), two long, straight side-burns and two rows of flips at her shoulder. Continuing from her shoulder is a large single flip down her back.
Princess Rosalina currently appears in a teal dress said to be a color that only exists when the sun peers out of the clouds. Her brooch and crown are silver star shaped accessories. Her earrings are also star shaped, but gold colored. The brooch's jewel is yellow and her crown jewels are pink in the front and back, and blue on the sides. The dress cuts off at the top of her chest, where a light teal flap loops around. The dress has long sleeves with wide openings at the bottom, which are topped with light teal frills. At the bottom of her dress is a unique light teal frill that loops around until turning up to a point at the middle; under this a layer of a white lined under-dress is visible. Princess Rosalina's nail-polish is a light purple. In Super Mario Galaxy, Princess Rosalina holds a silver wand with a golden star at the top. Princess Rosalina has silver dress shoes.
Princess Rosalina is generally wise, kind, thoughtful and mother-like. She has an intimate knowledge of the universe and cares deeply for the Lumas. Princess Rosalina is also a friend of Mario and Luigi; towards the end of Galaxy she aids Mario to reach King Bowser Koopa in order to save poor Princess Peach, who is getting captured. Her outward strength and inner sorrow is most likely due to the loss of her mother, as Rosalina is often described as feeling lonely.
