Rifts®: Megaversal Highway™
Scarlet Cayce Aerihman
“I’m just a girl after all, don’t you go letting me out of your sight now…”
Scarlet Cayce Aerihman was born and trained to be a body-double for the daughter of an important member of the Sunaj. Alas, during the earliest years the Splugorth demanded her charge be handed over and trained as a gladiator as a test of her father’s loyalty. Outraged, her father quietly accepted and handed over his daughter, thus robbing Scarlet
of her life’s purpose. As a compromise, she would once again find value but this time as a candidate in the Zenith Day Project as test subject #19 where she would meet the man who would later become her betrothed.
Scarlet is an opportunistic social butterfly devoid of sympathy for those less fortunate than herself. She is also a trained Sunaj Assassin and a moderately skilled Burster. Though she acts daft behind the veil ignorance, she is a keen and vindictive mind whose only loyalties are to her own best interests and those of her beloved. If it were it not for her husband’s instance to the contrary, she would have betrayed Cygnus long ago.
Alignment: Miscreant (Evil)
Motivation: Live a life of luxury and destroy all those who would stand in the way of her beloved.
Disposition: Selfish to a ruthless degree. She is capable of committing deeds of limitless evil or betraying anyone as long as it is what best serves her interests. Her only true allegiance is to that of her husband: Jason Parker
R.C.C.: True Atlantean
Weight: 170 lbs.
Appearance: A true bombshell by any standards. She has long, vibrant red hair; and a slender, well-toned body with legs that seem to stretch to infinity. If one were to search for a flaw in this creature of near divine beauty, it would be her tattoos on each wrist, but let’s face it, you are kind of in to that too.
