um... it kinda dependes on what context your using it in if you are talking about WoW then it means a character who can be stealthy and be invisile. Or if your talking about a rogue agent it the same thing as a double agent. Ambiguous Rogue . A rogue, as stated above, can be used to describe som…e renegade that took off from that person's duties, regardless of the dangers of doing so. A rogue is pretty much the same as a renegade or a vigilante, and yes I do love synomyms (same meaning words)! Also, an undercover agent may be called a rogue one simply to protect the organization, such is the case with David Webb, also known as Jason Bourne, played by Matt Damon.. Rogue is also a member of the Uncanny X-men, led by the psychic genius Professor X, Charles Xavier. She is, in the cartoon, at least, a young woman with thick red curly hair with a white streak down the middle. She wore a brown leather jacket over her green and yellow oufit.. Her powers were much like Peter Patrelli from Hereos on nbc (or abc, one of those), as both of them absorb the powers of everyone else, though she had to do it by actually touching them every time, and when she did so, the person usually passed out, leaving Rogue with their powers for a time. However, unlike Peter, she can't keep or draw from any traces of the power, and unlike Peter, she can't simply be relatively close to someone to take their power, she has to physicaly touch a person each and every time, in an appropriate way, and no, she never inapropriately touched children to get their powers or for any other reason!

This idiom, and the associated "wake up with the cows", means to go to bed early in the evening, so as to get good rest durign each night's sleep (and similarly, to wake up early, to utilise the daylight available instead of sleeping). It derives from a time when farming was dependent on being able… to see what was going on. Chickens would go to bed around dusk; because there was little to do after this time, the farmer may as well sleep at this time too. Likewise, waking up when the cows do (around dawn) meant that the maximum of daylight could be used; the cows would also need milking at that time, so it was doubly a good idea. (MORE)

It is used metaphorically. Presumably, if an animal has just past, its trail is still warm, and signs like foot prints, or scent, or pieces of fur will still be there to indicate where the animal went.
