Faith Rosco (née Flynn) was a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. Cynthia Preston originated the role in December 2002 and portrayed the mafia princess until the character's death in 2005.
Faith Rosco arrived in Port Charles in late 2002 to take down rival mobster, Sonny Corinthos. She partnered up with Ned Ashton, who blamed Sonny for the death of Kristina Cassadine. However, Ned soon became fed up with her, and ended their partnership.
Rosco found a new partner in Sonny's new lawyer Ric Lansing. But when Ric attempted to end his partnership with Faith, she didn't want to let him go. Encouraged by their one night stand, Faith continued to pursue Ric, though he to rejected her advances at every turn. After realizing that Ric had fallen in love and eloped with Elizabeth Webber, Faith tried to run her off. When she found out that Elizabeth was pregnant, she tricked Elizabeth into a supposed meeting with Sonny, and when Liz's back was turned she pushed her down the stairs. Elizabeth had a miscarriage, and Ric blamed Sonny.
Rosco continually tried to convince Ric that he wouldn't be happy with Elizabeth. She went as far breaking into Ric and Liz's home to poison Liz. Elizabeth survived, and when Ric found out about what she did, he set her up to confess while the PCPD listened in. To avoid going to prison, Faith made a deal with the FBI to bring down Lorenzo Alcazar. Part of the deal was to pose as Sonny's mistress.
She turned on Sonny, and teamed up with Alcazar. The two planned to bring Sonny's ex-wife, Lily Rivera Corinthos, "back from the dead" to haunt him. The plan fell through. Faith begun working on her own plan, and at the next meeting of the five families, Faith had them all killed. She gloated about her accomplishment to Sonny, until Sonny informed her that Jason survived the shooting. Faith panicked and offered to work with him against Alcazar, Sonny refused and pulled out his gun - but he couldn't seem to pull the trigger.
Faith, next became involved with Luke Spencer, Skye Chandler, and their casino, The Haunted Star. After she won a poker game against Luke, she became a partner in the casino. Worried, Skye hired Justus Ward to protect Luke's ownership rights while he was out of town. It was revealed that Justus and Faith had a past together. Justus had represented Faith's ex-boyfriend, and they had an affair. Faith's ex was convicted and killed in prison. She believed that Justus intentionally sent her boyfriend to jail so that he could be with her. Justus denied this.
Rosco realizing that she was at the end of her rope, went to Sonny to beg for her life. Through eavesdropping she found that he was the real father of Sam McCall's baby and planned to use it to her advantage. Sonny eventually came clean to his wife, Carly, and Faith lost her leverage.
Rosco went to Alcazar to help her leave town, but Alcazar secretly planned to blow up the yacht she was on and frame Jason and Sonny for her murder. Alcazar's plan failed when the PCPD found Faith alive in the harbor. She was arrested once again, and begged Justus to help her. Justus agreed, feeling the need to make for their past. When a prison inmate stabbed Faith, she was rushed to General Hospital, and from their escaped. Justus hid her in the basement of the Quartermaine mansion. There, she confessed her love for Justus and they made love. Soon Faith met her end in March 2005 where she was shot and killed by Jason Morgan.
