She is labeled as a "Pink Dye Vendor."
- "Pink isn't just pretty, it's a symbol of breast cancer awareness. To increase attention to the issue, I've whipped up a dye that will certainly increase visibility. Would you like a vial?"
- It will be my honor to wear this dye.
- If you don't mind, I'll call it Salmon-Colored Dye.
- This will go perfectly with everything else I'm going to dye pink!
- Selecting any of the three options:

- † When introduced, this item was called Pink Dye; see below.
- Rosa Salvitas was first introduced in Lion's Arch at 11:00 AM PDT on October 16, 2010, for Pink Day in LA, and stayed until the end of the month. She took the place of Loremaster Ermenred.
- In the following years, she appeared from October 1 – 31 and Ermenred remained in Lion's Arch.
- The September 30, 2011 update renamed the Vial of Dye [Pink] purchased from Rosa Salvitas to Vial of Rosa's Dye [Pink] and created a new Vial of Dye [Pink] that works like any other dye, i.e. it drops from foes, is available from dye traders, and can be traded to other players.
- "Rosa Salvitas" is a Latin-like phrase that loosely translates to "saving pink".
- Rosa's dialogue was "October, as you know, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. To increase attention, I've whipped up a dye that will certainly increase visibility. Would you like a vial?"
- Rosa offered a Vial of Rosa's Dye [Pink] described as "[a] special blend created to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month", while Sadie's dye is simply "[a] special blend created to support breast cancer awareness".
- She and Vial of Rosa's Dye [Pink] was renamed to Sadie Salvitas and Vial of Sadie's Dye [Pink], respectively, in the April 18, 2013 update in memory of the Guild Wars player Sadie Massa Kiss (nicknamed Sadie), who passed away from cancer in March 2013. She actively participated in Pink Day in LA.
- She is wielding an Ensorcelling Staff and uses the same model as Candysmith Marley.
- "Salmon-Colored" is a reference to men embarrassed by the connotations of the color, e.g. in the TV series Friends, Ross claims his shirt is salmon-colored and not pink.
