Mila Rose is a tall, dark-skinned, green-eyed Arrancar with long, thick, wavy brown hair and large breasts. Her Hollow hole is positioned mid-way between her navel and breasts. Her mask fragments form a three-sectioned crown around her head and a thick necklace. Her Arrancar attire was heavily modified: it matches to the attire belonging to an Amazon warrior, with multiple armor covering her breasts and upper arms, gauntlets on her forearms, and a white skirt.
Over the seventeen months following Aizen's defeat, her mask fragments change shape. The band of the crown around her head is thicker, and has a pair of long, bull-like horns protruding from it. She wears armor and a revealing, high collared top that does not cover her breasts, exposing her white bra. She also wears a white cape with a purple gem hooking it around her neck. She wears a skirt made of strips of white fabric hanging from a red belt which is adorned by a purple clasp. She wears golden brackets around her right arm and leg too.
When she was a Hollow, Mila Rose was a large lioness Adjuchas with a brown skin body. She had white armor on her four legs, thick, dark brown hair on her back the when down her body and formed into her tail. Her mask and mane were golden.
She is more rational than Apacci, but is still angered by insults from her fellow Fracción, Cyan Sung-Sun, and Rangiku Matsumoto, who calls her a "female gorilla". She can be somewhat sadistic when fighting.
Franceska does care for her fellow Fracción. Despite her arguments with Apacci, Mila Rose didn't hesitate to save her unconscious body from Quilge Opie despite knowing how dangerous he is after absorbing Ayon.

Note: Events occurring in this episode are only in the anime and do not constitute canon material.
Hueco Mundo arc
Along with Tier Harribel and her fellow Fracción, Mila Rose observes the battle between Ichigo Kurosaki and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez. Stating the Gran Rey Cero is something which should not be used under the canopy of Las Noches, Mila Rose, saying she can hear Apacci's teeth chattering, is shaken by the Reiatsu given off by Grimmjow's Resurrección.
Fake Karakura Town arc
Along with Apacci, Sung-Sun, Harribel, the other two strongest Espada, and their Fracción, Mila Rose is summoned to the fake Karakura Town to do battle with the Gotei 13. With the pillars keeping the real Karakura Town in Soul Society successfully defended and four of Baraggan Louisenbairn's Fracción killed, the remaining Fracción pair up with a Shinigami and begin to fight. Mila Rose, Apacci, and Sung-Sun take on 10th Division Captain Tōshirō Hitsugaya and 10th Division Lieutenant Rangiku Matsumoto, but Rangiku decides to take on all three while her captain heads for their leader.
When Apacci reprimands Hitsugaya for attacking Harribel, Mila tells her to save it for later. When Apacci asks if Mila Rose thinks it is okay for Hitsugaya to attack Harribel, Mila Rose, pointing out Harribel unsheathed her sword, states Hitsugaya does not stand a chance and tells Apacci if she wishes to aid Harribel, she should defeat Rangiku before leaving. When Apacci is enraged by Rangiku's taunting, Mila Rose, stating it was a challenge, tells her to not get riled up by her words, prompting Rangiku to tell Apacci to listen to the "female gorilla". As Mila Rose furiously insults Rangiku in return, Sung-Sun, saying they are disgraceful, states they are stupid for letting Rangiku provoke them, prompting them to ask whose side she is on. As the three Fracción continue to argue with each other, Rangiku, telling them they have lost any advantage they had by not surrounding her when they had the chance, releases her Zanpakutō, Haineko, which envelops the trio in an ash cloud. After Mila Rose, Apacci, and Sung-Sun each fire a Cero, dispersing the ash, Mila Rose asks if Rangiku thinks she can defeat them with this.
Later, Momo Hinamori joins the fight. When Apacci says they can help Harribel after defeating Momo and Rangiku, Mila Rose tells her to not give her orders. Charging at the duo, they are ensnared by a Kidō net before Momo, explaining the trap, uses Tobiume to engulf the Fracción in an explosion. As Momo explains how she set up the trap, Mila Rose, Apacci, and Sung-Sun each enter their Resurrección. As Mila Rose states they should finish them in one attack, they, ripping off their left arms, activate Quimera Parca, creating a colossal beast which Apacci refers to as Ayon.
Later, when Izuru Kira and Shūhei Hisagi arrive to fight against Ayon, Apacci is annoyed when it does not respond to her commands to kill the lieutenants, prompting Mila Rose to state it cannot hear them. When Ayon is defeated by Captain-Commander Genryūsai Shigekuni Yamamoto, Mila Rose, Apacci, and Sung-Sun attack him from above, only to be effortlessly defeated by the flames of Ryūjin Jakka.
The Thousand-Year Blood War arc
Following the Wandenreich conquest of Hueco Mundo and capture of Harribel, Sung-Sun, Apacci, and Mila Rose appear at the camp of the Jagdarmee as the unit's leader, Quilge Opie, is selecting Arrancar to abduct. When Apacci attacks the group, killing two of them, Mila Rose, criticizing her about overdoing it, threatens to kill her. As Mila Rose and Apacci begin another argument with one another over the threat, Sung-Sun, deciding to challenge Quilge on her own, refers to her comrades as "primates", prompting Mila Rose and Apacci to retaliate by insulting her as well. Elsewhere, Nel Tu informs Ichigo Kurosaki the three Arrancar are called the Tres Bestias (3獣神 (トレス・ベスティア), Toresu Besutia; Spanish for "Three Beasts", Japanese for "Three Beast Gods") due to their fearsome nature. Sneezing, Apacci asks Mila Rose if she was just bad mouthing her, prompting Mila Rose to ask her if something is wrong with her ears. The two start bickering again, much to Sung-Sun's annoyance. When his underlings are defeated, Quilge offers them the chance to surrender, but the three, dismissing his offer, engage him in battle. When Ichigo arrives, Quilge stands over their defeated forms.
Regaining consciousness while Ichigo is fighting Quilge, Mila Rose, Apacci, and Sung-Sun summon Ayon, who attacks Quilge, catching him off guard while he is explaining Quincy: Vollständig to Ichigo. Telling Quilge he is still fighting them, Apacci, Mila Rose, and Sung-Sun command Ayon to attack him. When Ayon looks back at them, Mila Rose wonders why it is doing so. Watching as Ayon brutalizes Quilge, Mila Rose is stunned to see Quilge, attacking Apacci, snap his neck back into place before requesting they all die.
After witnessing Quilge absorb Ayon with Sklaverei, Mila Rose and Sung-Sun, realizing the danger they are in, grab the unconscious Apacci and flee to where Orihime Inoue and Yasutora Sado are. After Sung-Sun uses Muda to create a barrier where they cannot be detected, citing they only saved Orihime and Sado because it would be bad if two beings with powerful Reiatsu were absorbed by Quilge, Mila Rose recognizes Orihime as the person Sōsuke Aizen brought to Hueco Mundo. When she asks why she is here, Sung-Sun says she should not be worried about this right now. As they listen to Sung-Sun explain the danger they are in and what they should do next, Quilge, absorbing the barrier, begins absorbing all those within the barrier before being attacked from behind by Ichigo.

Fake Karakura Town arc (Bleach Official Character Book 3 UNMASKED)
The material world transfer which was performed by Captain Mayuri Kurotsuchi switched Karakura Town in Soul Society with the fake Karakura Town, and when this happened, the Arrancar who had passed out with deep wounds were transferred to Soul Society. Having came from Hueco Mundo to Soul Society through a Garganta with Rukia Kuchiki to meet up with Ichigo Kurosaki after he finished his battle against Sōsuke Aizen, Orihime Inoue was led by Emilou Apacci and began healing their wounds. After returning to Hueco Mundo via Garganta, Harribel and her Fracción looked upon the destruction which came from the various battles which took place. The Arrancar were greeted by Kukkapūro, the Hollow dog, whom they recognized as Yammy Llargo's companion. Feeling what was left of Yammy's Reiatsu, Harribel and the others determined the powerful Espada fought with all his might before dying. They realized the Adjuchas Hollows had detected their presence and would arrive shortly, for they were now able to approach Las Noches due to the absence of the powerful Espada. All four understood it would not be long before the fighting normal to the Hollows of Hueco Mundo would begin again. Harribel became distressed at the concept, for preventing it was her reasoning for joining Aizen, but now it would return, and she could not stop it from happening. Cyan Sung-Sun suggested now that Baraggan Louisenbairn was dead and Aizen was gone, she should rule Hueco Mundo in their place. Mila Rose and Apacci agreed it would be the best course of action, but Harribel disagreed, stating a fake sun could not bring light to the darkness of Hueco Mundo, and all which is truly needed is the silent darkness. Harribel began to make her way toward Las Noches, with her loyal Fracción following behind.
In the manga, Sung-Sun, Mila Rose, and Apacci summon Ayon by tearing off their left arms. In the anime, they hold their left arms to fire a red beam which becomes Ayon. Later on, they do not have their left arms, with red auras covering their arms instead.
