“So please, wipe that sad look off your face. We're going to kick some butt!”
—Scarlet to the Avatar, Birthright Chapter 14: Light Scatters

Scarlet (クリムゾン Kurimuzon, lit. Crimson) is a playable character in Fire Emblem Fates on the Birthright and Revelation routes. A feisty, passionate individual with strong morals, Scarlet is the leader of the Chevian resistance effort.

Scarlet is voiced by Ayano Ishikawa in the Japanese version and Marcella Lentz-Pope in the English version.

ProfileEdit

The leader of the anti-Nohr resistance in the occupied city of Cheve, Scarlet is known to have gained her inspiration from her grandfather, who was a servant of the king of Hoshido many years earlier.

BirthrightEdit

Just as Leo attempts to execute the Avatar at the end of Chapter 13 in the village of Cheve, a masked resistance General arrives and wounds him, halting him in his attempt. Scarlet and her resistance force then arrive shortly after, forcing Leo, Camilla, Hans and the rest of the Nohrian forces to retreat. Scarlet then briefly introduces herself and her position to the Avatar before the resistance General reveals himself to be Ryoma.

Under Ryoma's lead, the Avatar's army is then led to the Cheve Underground, which functions as the resistance effort's base of operations in Chapter 14. Here, Scarlet is surprised to learn that the Ryoma who had joined the resistance is not merely a random stranger who had assumed the name, but the actual Prince Ryoma of Hoshido in the flesh. Midway through their conversation, the Cheve Underground is suddenly besieged by Nohrian forces. The Avatar and Ryoma promptly decide to circumvent any possible crackdowns on Cheve by Nohrian forces and use the opportunity to invade Nohr. Although initially reluctant to leave the rest of the Resistance, Scarlet eventually makes the decision to join the Avatar's army, knowing that if they succeed in their invasion attempt, Cheve will finally be liberated.

Scarlet subsequently aids the Avatar's effort to put an end to the age-old conflict shared between Hoshido and Nohr.

ConquestEdit

Scarlet appears in Chapter 13, where she, alongside Takumi, Reina and Orochi, leads a rebellion uprising that has broken out in Cheve. The rebels clash with the Avatar's army when the latter is deployed by Garon to eliminate them. Despite the best effort of the rebels, they are eventually defeated in the ensuing battle. When Hans and the Nohrian troops begin massacring the local civilians and the wounded Hoshidans who are left behind, Scarlet is executed in an especially gruesome manner.

RevelationEdit

Scarlet first appears alongside Ryoma and the Hoshidan army in Chapter 13, where they take up arms against Nohr in Cyrkensia. Following the subduing of the battle by the Avatar's army's intervention to put an end to the fighting, Scarlet introduces herself to the Avatar when they attempt to convince Ryoma to join their cause. She then makes the decision to place her trust in them even before Ryoma does, under the pretext that they have good eyes that do not lie of their owner's intentions. When Ryoma expresses incredulity at Scarlet's decision, an amusing scene ensues that sees Ryoma becoming flustered when she snaps at him and assures the Avatar that she will lecture him while they are en route to Castle Shirasagi. She then departs from the vicinity with Ryoma.

Scarlet next appears in Castle Shirasagi in the opening sequence of Chapter 16 with Ryoma, where they quickly rush to aid Yukimura in quelling a Nohrian invasion that has broken out there. They then engage him in conversation, during which they exchange information on the Avatar's cause, where it is revealed that the Avatar had urged them to meet them at the Bottomless Canyon before the skies over Hoshido and Nohr change colour. When Ryoma later resolves to join the Avatar's cause, Scarlet decides to accompany him. Later, as the Avatar's army is ambushed by a Nohrian force led by Hans in the Bottomless Canyon, Scarlet shows up alongside Ryoma, Hinoka, Azama and Setsuna to serve as reinforcements.

Scarlet is directly involved in the plot again in the opening sequence of Chapter 18, where she and the rest of the Avatar's army prepare to leap into the Bottomless Canyon to enter the realm of Valla. Shortly before she joins her allies, Scarlet pins a flower onto the front of her chest armor, informing the Avatar that she is following a Chevian custom that is practised during monumental events. She then leaps into the canyon alongside the Avatar. While falling towards the bottom of the canyon, the Avatar is attacked by the mysterious hooded man, but is saved when Scarlet sacrifices her life by using her body as a shield to absorb the full impact of his blows. Following the conclusion of an attack led by Arete, Scarlet's death is made known to Ryoma and the rest of the Avatar's army. Ryoma, shocked beyond measure, manages to regain his composure and urges the Avatar not to continue blaming themselves for her death.

Scarlet appears one final time in Chapter 23, where her corpse is reanimated by Anankos to fight alongside Arete. Robbed of her ability to act of her own free will, Scarlet only achieves peace when she is killed in battle, whereupon she express gratitude to the Avatar's army for freeing her from Anankos' control.

PersonalityEdit

Scarlet is depicted as a character who refuses to bow down to conventions that she disagrees with, choosing instead to live life on her own beliefs and rules. This fact alone is precisely what motivates her into spearheading the Chevian rebellion effort, the result of her inability to continue tolerating the oppressive rule of King Garon.

Lively and freewheeling by nature, Scarlet has also been portrayed as a character who is openly honest with her thoughts and feelings, displaying no fear or hesitation in sharing them with others. This fact can be observed through her interactions with both Ryoma and the Avatar, where she is known to make brutally honest comments about their actions, and in the case of the latter, reveal her penchant for embellishing her equipment with precious stones.

Scarlet is also known to be quite the romantic, although she keeps this tightly under wraps, only revealing it when faced with the person whom she loves. This fact can be observed in her S support with the male Avatar, where she proclaims her love for him and vows to spend the remainder of her life with him.

Scarlet is said to like shiny things the most in the army. Her birthday is August 3.

OverviewEdit

Base Class SetEdit

Scarlet is a solid offensive unit when she is recruited in both Birthright and Revelation. Her base Strength, Skill, Speed and Defense are above average for a pre-promoted unit, and this is further complemented by the fact that her growths in these stats are quite decent. Considering that Scarlet is the only non-Einherjar Wyvern Lord on the Birthright route, she is worth considering as a unit for more unit diversity. On Revelation, Scarlet is, unfortunately, only available for use between Chapter 16 and Chapter 18 before she is killed off due to plot reasons. Regardless of this, Scarlet is a solid unit who is heavily recommended for use on the Birthright route. Her personal skill, In Extremis, boosts her critical hit rate by 30 whenever her health is under 25%, making her deadly when heavily wounded. With Killer weapons, she can become a dangerous Critical unit in that state, though she needs to be handled with care as well as recklessness can lead to her downfall.

Scarlet is recruited with her Wyvern Rider skills equipped; Strength +2 gives her a small boost to her Strength, while Lunge can be put to use for swarming tactics. In her Wyvern Lord base class, the skills that she has access to include Rally Defense and Swordbreaker. Rally Defense is best suited for supportive play and is thus not quite recommended for an offensive unit like Scarlet. Swordbreaker, on the other hand, complements her natural proficiency in Axes by giving her the upper edge when facing against Sword and Katana-wielding foes. Scarlet also has access to the Malig Knight class, giving her Savage Blow to weaken units and Trample to give her offensive superiority over non-mounted units.

Secondary Class SetsEdit

Scarlet has access to two secondary class sets: The Outlaw and Knight class sets. While both the Outlaw and Knight classes do not have any decent skills that are worth keeping on Scarlet, the Movement +1 skill that she stands to learn as an Outlaw can help her intercept enemies with more ease. Scarlet can also learn Locktouch from the Outlaw class set, however Kaze, Saizo, and Kagero all have Locktouch upon being recruited, so there is really no need for Scarlet to use this skill.

As part of the Outlaw class set, Scarlet gains access to the Adventurer and Bow Knight promotions. As an Adventurer, Scarlet can learn Lucky Seven, a skill that can boost her accuracy and help her better avoid enemy attacks, although it is only useful for a meagre seven turns. She can also learn Pass to flee from mobs of enemies if surrounded. As a Bow Knight, Scarlet stands to learn Rally Skill, a support skill that is best suited for a support-oriented unit. She can also learn Shurikenbreaker, a very useful skill that allows her to better fend against Shuriken and Dagger-wielding enemies who often have the tendency to be uncannily accurate in their attacks and can prevent having to take stat penalties from them.

As part of the Knight class set, Scarlet gains access to the General and Great Knight promotions, both of which bequeaths a plethora of useful skills to her. As a General, she can learn Wary Fighter, although it is rather counterproductive as it completely ignores her above average Speed and prevents her from performing double attacks. Pavise, the other skill she can learn, is far more helpful by contrast, as it will, when activated, reduce the amount of damage that she can potentially sustain from physical attacks, especially those inflicted by enemies wielding dragon-slaying weapons. As a Great Knight, Scarlet can learn Luna, a powerful offensive skill that complements her Strength by further enhancing her damage output. She can also learn Armored Blow, a skill that transforms her into a solid physical tank when she initiates attacks.

Marriage Class SetsEdit

The Avatar is Scarlet's sole marriage partner. This means that if wanting to acquire a specific skill for her, the Avatar needs to marry her with the class as his secondary, otherwise, the player will need to search the game's online features for users who have a Scarlet with the skill.

Some classes worth considering to give her skills include the Berserker and Spear Master classes which gives her Axefaire and Lancefaire respectively to boost damage to her base class' weapons. Sorcerer class from the Dark Mage base gives her Bowbreaker, removing some of the threat of Bow users who deal effective damage to her flying mount base class. Dark Knight and Priestess provides Lifetaker and Renewal respectively for solid self-regeneration for her health. Lastly Sorcerer, Hero, Basara, Swordmaster and Master Ninja provide other attacking skills if Luna is not to the player's liking.

There are two skills in particular that syncs incredibly well with her personal skill as the Samurai class has Vantage which allows her to attack first during the enemy's turn when under half health and Vengeance which increases damage the more heavily wounded she is. Death Blow from the Oni Chieftain is also worth considering as the boost from the skill during the player's turn means that she has a base 50% Critical hit rate without factoring her weapon when wounded. With the boost from a Killer Weapon, she can achieve a 90% crit activation during the player's turn when heavily wounded.

Possible EndingsEdit

Scarlet - Rebellious Streak (豪快な女竜騎士 Gōkai na Onna Ryūkishi lit. Hearty Female Dragon Knight)

Scarlet returned to Cheve to rebuild the knightly orders of old. Her positivity moved many youth to join her cause. Legend has it she is the reason the Chevois knights wield such flashy weapons.
Scarlet and the Avatar (Birthright)
Avatar was hailed as a hero, working alongside his spouse to spread peace worldwide. His wife, Scarlet, was known for always seeing the bright side of things. They adored each other.

EtymologyEdit

Both Scarlet and Crimson are shades of red.

Trivia Edit

  • Scarlet shares her English voice actress, Marcella Lentz-Pope, with one of the female Avatar's voice choices.
    • She also shares her Japanese voice actress, Ayano Ishikawa, with Setsuna.
  • Besides Azura, Scarlet is the only playable character who dies in multiple routes of the story. Birthright is the only route where she survives throughout the entire game.
  • Scarlet was voted as the 30th most popular female character on Nintendo's official Fates character poll.
  • During the opening cutscene of Revelation chapter 18, Scarlet has a special battle model depicting her wearing a white and yellow flower.
  • Due to plot reasons, the Scarlet Statue building in My Castle can only be built between chapters 16-18 in the Revelation route. This requires her to kill at least 20 enemy units before the cut-off point (with 50+ and 100+ kills needed to upgrade the statue to level 2 and 3 respectively).
  • In Chapter 23 of Revelation, Scarlet can have lower weapon ranks as an enemy than she did when she left the player's party.
  • When she scores a critical, she can yell "I'm gonna get Nohrian on your butt", a possible reference to Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.
