Faith Rosco was a mobster with attitude; she constantly tried to
eliminate her enemies, all the while playing it cool. She used sex as a
weapon and rarely showed her vulnerable side.
Faith first came to Port Charles in December 2003 as the widow of a
mobster. She was trouble and was not afraid to let people know it.
Most of her time was spent trying to take out Sonny Corinthos for
killing her husband. The only problem was that Faith did not have enough
money or power, so most of her plans almost always required a partner.
Her first partner was Ned Ashton. Ned wanted revenge on Sonny because
he blamed him for the death of his girlfriend Kristina Cassadine, and he
was angry that Sonny used Alexis Cassadine and threw her away. Most of
Faith and Ned's partnership was spent in bed; the two had sex constantly
and did not put much focus on taking Sonny down. Eventually the two
decided to use Carly's new club for their plans. The club once belonged
to Faith's grandmother (whom Faith killed).
Ned wanted to move slowly so that they wouldn't attract Sonny's
attention, but Faith wanted to move immediately. She made several moves
against Sonny through the people he loves, including his wife and
sister, but all these attempts were unsuccessful. Faith poisoned her
grandmother in order to keep a promise she'd made to not go after Sonny
while her grandmother was still alive. She then hired a hit woman to
kill Sonny at her grandmother's memorial service. However, the hit woman
did not kill Sonny, so Faith poisoned her to cover her tracks. Sonny
suspected Faith as being behind the hit and promised that one day she
would get hers. At the same time, Ned decided that he was not ready for
a partnership with Faith and called it quits. Faith also had a secret
partner, Edward Quartermaine, but he stopped being her partner when he
realized he could not get to Ned.
Faith's next partner was Ric Lansing. Faith, at the time, did not
know why Ric wanted to destroy Sonny, but she did not care, just as long
as Sonny died. Ric and Faith planned a staged argument in front of the
five families over Sonny's territory, but the plan backfired when Sonny
showed up at the meeting. At the same time, Jason Morgan, Sonny's hit
man and friend, formed a fake partnership with Faith to find out who her
real partner was, but before she could tell him, Ric shot her. Scared
that Ric would kill her, Faith told Jason that she didn't have a
partner. Ric then attempted to throw Sonny off his trail by framing
as Faith's partner. Jason kidnapped Faith to get her to tell who her
real partner was.
When Faith wasn't trying to kill or ruin Sonny, she was trying to
come on to him. When they had to work together for the Feds and make it
look like she and he were having an affair, she tried everything she
could to get him to make it for real, including putting on his wife's
dresses. He was just not interested because he loved his
wife, and Faith was not the type to be trusted. But there was always a
sexual connection between them.
Since then, Faith's track record included: being obsessed with Ric;
helping to brainwash Carly into loving Lorenzo; being temporarily
committed to an institution; pushing Elizabeth down some stairs, causing her
to lose her baby; sleeping with Lorenzo; taking over Lorenzo's
territory; and framing Zander for shooting police officer, Brian. It
was also revealed that Faith had a past with lawyer
Faith did not like or trust anyone else in town; she just used them
whenever she could, to get to Sonny or to get money and power. She got
Luke and Skye to let her be a
business partner on their boat and then used them to launder mob money.
Faith was always trying to get out of some jam. She seemed to always
escape both being murdered by Sonny and Jason, and going to jail. She
probably one of the most villainous characters ever on daytime. She was written as being kind of crazy
and immoral. She came very close to being murdered by many people.
Probably the worst thing she did was conspire with AJ to kidnap Michael,
and Sonny's other kids. They made it look like Michael had died.
Eventually, Faith did get into a relationship with Justus and they fled town
together. However, when she returned, she was murdered by a hit man, hired
by John Durant.
