(sister-from-another-mister, deceased, watcher)Height:
Long blondeEyes: Sea greenUsual Style/Clothes:
Scarlett has an affinity for form fitting clothing, anything from yoga pants and tank tops for lounging around the apartment to spandex for working out, to even tight jeans and cute blouses. While on patrol this doesn't change much, she's purchased several bodysuits of leather. Having them custom ordered for ease of movement she wears the body-hugging black leather with a domino mask. She's been burned once for vamps seeing her face, she's not making the same mistake twice. The body suit has no sleeves, and a silver (literal silver) zipper than runs down to just under her breasts. She often has it unzipped to show off the miracle of a push-up bra that gives her a nice cleavage shelf. The "costume" has silver and wooden stakes that she wears along her thigh, knee-high boots with a three-inch wedge heel and a silver toe. For anything more she carries around a black bag of "tricks" that has extra stakes, and a few other medieval looking weapons in it.Appearance:
Scarlett is a petite blonde with sea green eyes and a physique that one would expect with the Slayer. She's physically fit from years of gymnastics and dance, although both are well in her past. Her legs are shapely, and lead into a generous rear with a good six-pack abdomen, pert 34B breasts (although they can look like C's with the right bra). Her hair is naturally wavy, though she also enjoys wearing it straight every now and again just to mix things up. She also keeps her hair up in buns or ponytails while patrolling or working out.Powers:Strength:Speed:Agility:Reflexes:Senses:Resilience:Healing:Dreams:Martial Arts:Personality:
Scarlett loves to have a good time, always coming off as a bit bubbly. She loves to laugh, party, and try new things. On occasion some might say she's down to earth, though it's often in crisis mode when she needs to think clearly and not just have fun. In that way some might say it's hard to pin her personality down, at least, until they learn that she's the slayer. Or rather "Slayer" her name she goes by when she's out on patrol and in full costume. When in costume she loves to throw quips out while fighting, sometimes feeling just a little bit
like Spiderman. Knowing her life is on the line, but she may as well have fun while doing it. She's a little bit of a goofball at times as well.Favorite Quote:
Slayer comes in the niiiiiiiiiiiiiiight"Quirks:
Scarlett can be a bit of a goofball sometimes while others like flipping a switch can turn on the feminine wiles. It comes from a couple of years modeling for her mom's teen-line of clothing. Or rather, being able to turn the sexy on, she's always been something of a goofball.Hobbies:
Singing, drawing, slaying vampires.History:
Scarlett has just recently moved across the country from Atlanta to Fairview so that she can just get away
from the largest city in the south. It's too busy there, too many people know her name, and most of all it
happened there. She became a slayer at seventeen and shortly found out the new History teacher Ms. Swift was to be her watcher. Telling her things like she's going to save the world and that she's the only one that can do it. Scarlett thought it was cool at first, she'd always been into comic books, getting lost in the fantasy of being bad-ass enough to dare put on an outfit like Black Canary or Huntress and then fight crime in it. Now she was one, more like super girl than the other two, but still a superheroine that could be kick ass.
Turns out that it's not that simple. And being a slayer isn't about stopping crime, but slaying vampires and other demons. She started off by calling Alexis "Alfred" then moved on to "Oracle" as it seemed the woman was an endless book of knowledge on potential demons she could be facing. Having a photographic memory helps apparently, and left her with one of the youngest watchers out there. She learned though, that the woman could fight. To the point that even with her innate knowledge and new-found powers, that Scarlett had a hard time keeping up with her.
She would often quip that Alexis should be out fighting vampires, not herself. They became friends pretty quick, not only with slayer duties but going out shopping for new clothes (and sometimes weapons), while also training and going on missions together. Mostly it's boring patrols, but she felt like she was getting better. She'd been dissuaded from wearing a mask at night, it'd block her vision. Besides she kills vampires, it's not as if they'd track her back to her house or anything, and even if they did, then they still would need to be invited inside. And once there, her dad is ex-special forces. Vampires were not messing with the right family.
Her training got to the point where she could do solo patrols, she learned a lot by not having the back-up of Alexis with her. She fed her parents a lie about her teacher and how they'd become friends. She hated it, and she was fairly certain her dad could tell, even with Alexis backed her up. She'd had a particularly rough night of fighting vampire after vampire when her dad showed up right when she was dusting one. She saved him from another and then they had to have a very long talk about what in the hell was going on. He was...surprisingly understanding about it. Said he'd seen some things he couldn't explain in his time in special forces, and now it made a little more sense.
Where as they were drifting apart from the lies and conspiracy, now they were drifting back together, her becoming her daddy's little girl once more. They'd just about resolved to leave her mom out of it, fairly certain she couldn't handle it, and that her dad would help field questions about it. However then her dad's cell rang and her mom was on the other end. She was panicked saying something about a monster of a man trying to get inside with giant teeth, looked like something off of a movie set, an orc or a troll. Alexis was there but it was tearing up their house.
The whole thing (besides her dad finding out) had been a set-up. Some crazed demon had found out about the slayer, stalked her, found out her identity, then sent the biggest and baddest thing after her family it could find. Before her dad could say a thing Scarlett was sprinting back to the house, though by the time she got there the monster was dead and her mom was over Alexis holding a blood-soaked towel over her abdomen. Her watcher was still alive, enough to tell her who was behind it, telling her that maybe the mask wasn't such a bad idea after all, and then perished.
Scarlett spent a good ten minutes trying to revive Alexis but had to be pried away by her mom and dad both. When she said she had to go, her dad understood, but her mom managed to freak out, only held back by her dad. Scarlett changed into black denim pants, boots, a leather top, and leather jacket and strapped herself to go to war, then went after the demon. Alexis' dying words had been to tell her where it was most likely hiding. So the pissed-off slayer went to him, tortured him for information and then lopped his head off in one clean swipe with her ax. He hadn't told anyone else, other than the ogre that entered her house and was hell bent on tearing her family apart...literally. What better way to destroy a slayer than to destroy her family? No good to kill her, another one would come, but her family that was what would destroy a girl.
Scarlett had three months to graduation at the time and felt like a zombie going through it. Previously she'd decided to go to SCAD Atlanta, but then thought that moving across the country may better protect her family. The vampires would probably follow her, trying to kill her. If not, then well, at least they knew what to do.
She's been in Fairview for a little less than a year now. She found herself an apartment, using funding from her parents and her previous modeling job, she's at least been able to focus on her studies (all core classes, she doesn't even know if she wants to try anything) and being Slayer. She's come up with the identity for herself, again found her parents resources to be a huge boon to her success as a slayer. And wouldn't you know it? There's a Hellmouth in Fairview too.
She uses her training from Alexis to fight without a watcher. And while she "makes friends" with people at school she never allows them close enough so that if a demon did figure out who she was, that they wouldn't have anyone to go after. Not here anyway. No one but her, and that's the way she likes it. Granted...that's all about to be turned upside down...or perhaps right side up, nothing has felt right since Alexis sacrificed herself to kill that ogre and save her mom. It's not exactly as if she can see a counselor and explain to him all of her woes. She's just going to tough it out, and completely ignore any new watchers that the watcher's guild sends her way. She doesn't need any more blood on her hands.
