So my idea for the best is that he will be overweight pig like, but the rose or rose bush is growing out him like a parasite. Every time the a rose withers and dies or is removed the vines slowly grow out of and overtake his body and he slowly becomes the rose bush itself and he dies.
*I will add my concept sketches when i figure out how to add the photos...
Rose Bud was a greedy and gluttonous noble man who stole a beautiful rose bush which many thought to be enchanted from a witch in the forest. the Witch caught him and cursed him to be intertwined with the bush its self, when the noble reached home he burned the bush off himself; which scarred him badly. a couple days later he awoke to great pain his face to discover the bush is still attached to him and is peeling and ripping through his skin very slowly.
