Scarlet is a high attack, Victorian steampunk-styled legend, featuring the Hammer and Rocket Lance as her weapons. She can be unlocked for 5400 gold. Scarlet's cultured, high-class background is reflected in her equally sophisticated Victorian-era clothing, coloured brightly in white, maroon and blue. Her eyes show her curiosity of and desire to dismantle everything around her, and her weapons are both enhanced with steam power, making their impacts far harder, her offensive style far more potent, and her attacks far harder to forget when tending wounds.

Lady Necessity, The daVinci of Steam
"Scarlet Dashwood is the inventor of the steam dirigible, the aethor oculuscope, the undersea bathydrome, the electric light bulb, the rocket lance, the first practicable space travel, the first practicable time travel..." -Encyclopedia Omnibus, 1889 Edition
Scarlet Dashwood was the youngest person ever elected to the Royal Society, and the only female boxing champion of England. On an expedition to the remote Andes searching for the source of the mysterious aether-flux, she discovered a Lost World of dinosaurs, but was betrayed by her partner, the most beloved scientist of the age, Baron Von Evilstein. The Baron stole her inventions, framed Scarlet for his supposed murder, and vanished. Ten years later, the Baron emerged from the Lost World at the head of a vast armada of airships and dinosaur-riding ape warriors. One after another, the armies of the world fell before the Baron's high-tech aether weapons until Scarlet and her Royal Airship Navy were all that stood between the Baron and World domination. In the skies over the English Channel, Scarlet led the counterattack, finally defeating the Baron in a vast air battle that twice circumnavigated the world. Since arriving in Valhalla, Scarlet has been obsessed with the wondrous technology of the gods, and is constantly devising new weapons and challenges to add to the tournament.
"Ignore the pterodactyls! Get me on that Zeppelin!" -Scarlet to her air skiff pilot, Second Battle of the Andes.
Victorian, steampunk-styled gentlewoman Scarlet's cultured, high-class background is reflected in her equally sophisticated Victorian-era clothing, coloured brightly in white, maroon and blue: her gleaming white blouse is worn under a small blue coat that covers her upper torso, with maroon trousers and high boots covering her legs. She wears on her chest a shining green gem, likely an emerald, set into a golden broach that clips her blue coat together. Her hair, immaculately kept and coloured a striking dark red, is tied behind the head to stop it getting in the way of her inventing and/or disassembling work. Her hair also shows her brass inventor's goggles that are inset with bright green glass, while her eyes themselves show her curiosity of and desire to dismantle everything around her. Her Rocket Lance, called the Aetheric Rocket Drill (of her own invention), and her Pneumatic Hammer, are both ornamental pieces, made of gold or gold-plate metal and rich red wood. Their decorations are extravagant and typical of the Victorian style of her era, incorporating many curving edges and Fleur-de-Lis.
|Rocket Lance |
|Neutral||Scarlet reels back and swings her hammer at a high upwards diagonal angle, knocking back airborne enemies with tremendous force. Has long reach, though does not reliably hit close targets. Carries Scarlet forward a very slight distance.||Scarlet hits only in the front part of her swing and cannot damage anyone with the backswing of her hammer during this move. Nevertheless, this is a powerful and very effective anti-air move that has many purposes, and steam makes it hard to watch its hitbox.|
|Scarlet leaps into the air, bringing the hammer smashing down in an overhead arc into the ground in front of her. Carries Scarlet forward a short distance - if there is no ground underneath where she lands as the hammer comes down, the arc of the hammer reaches a little farther where it would otherwise strike ground as Scarlet carries the move through into a mid-air twirl.||This move is somewhat similar to Bodvar's side hammer signature, though slower and more powerful. Its hitbox extends slightly when there is no ground underneath the landing spot.|
|↓||Scarlet propels her hammer in a low, fast horizontal arc in front of her. If the blow connects, the target is caught onto the hammerhead, and Scarlet twirls them around her one more time before releasing them and sending them hurling back behind and above her.||Like with Bodvar’s Hammer down signature, this move is good for catching unaware opponents, although it has far less reach and comes out more quickly. When used properly, can be immensely powerful in the air.|
|Neutral||Scarlet bucks the lance forward like a rearing horse as it charges, curving the charge upwards and striking anything close in front and also above.||Due to its combination of horizontal and vertical movement, this attack can easily surprise most unexperienced or unprepared opponents, especially at the tip. Many Scarlet players love to use this attack to finish enemies who are trying to land back on the arena.|
|Scarlet hops on her lance and casually sits sidesaddle as it propels forward. This has a long forward reach and motion, and a powerful knockback.||This move hits for a very long distance, right until Scarlet’s lance begins to descend. Use it when the enemy is landing on the ground or running toward you blindly. Watch out – this move’s range saves you from riposte strikes, but you are still vulnerable from above.|
|↓||Scarlet takes a small step back and points her lance's thruster at the enemy before ejecting a plume of steam from it's mouth. The gout of steam hits anything in a long range ahead of where Scarlet is standing, and slightly above.||The hitbox of the attack is very huge, making it perfect for stopping a blindly approaching enemy dead in their tracks. However, it leaves Scarlet vulnerable right after the attack, making her a sitting duck if the steam blast is used improperly.|

- Because Scarlet is a very high damage Legend with very risky/situational abilities, she relies heavily on unarmed combat and light attacks, and requires using signatures sparingly.
Use of Signatures
- Scarlet's signatures are huge and effective. Nevertheless, you must make sure to use her sigs more defensively, as they are easy to punish.
- Use Scarlet's Lance down signature for effective counter play, both offensive or defensive.
- Her lance neutral signature hits at the base of lance too. This makes it great for ledge guarding!
- Scarlet's Hammer neutral signature raises her above the ground level. Helpful in 2v2 situations!
- Air canceling Her Hammer side signature increases the size of the attack's hitbox.

• Scarlet Hammer Neutral: Increased Time to Hit.
