Rose Tyler was born to Jackie and Pete Tyler around 1986.
(PROSE: The Feast of the Drowned) She left school aged sixteen to pursue a romantic relationship with local Jimmy Stone, which ended badly and apparently led to her lack of A levels.

Emotionally shaped by living with a single mother and stories about a father whom she never knew, Rose seemed destined for a life as a retail worker.
The Doctor told her that 2005 was going to be a great year for her. (TV: The End of Time) According to one account, Rose first met the Ninth Doctor when he and Jack Harkness were fighting Autons.(PROSE: The Red Bicycle) She attended Jericho Street Junior School, where she joined the gymnastics club, and won a bronze medal in competition.
