Scarlet is a main character and the point of view for the fifth Star Darling book, Scarlet Discovers True Strength. She is confident, independent, and a little rebellious. Her special power is manipulating gravity; she can make things super heavy or light. Scarlet is continually searching for that place where she feels comfortable enough to let her inner light shine through! Her wish is to live on Wishworld.
Scarlet went from being home-schooled while on tour with her parents to being with girls her own age all day, every day. It hasn't been easy. To her classmates, Scarlet seems to be in a completely different orbit. And that's just fine with her. She's confident, strong, and independent.
Scarlet's parents, Andromedus and Melodia, are super-stellar classical musicians, who, for as long as Scarlet can remember, have played in the planet's most star-studded concert halls. They were thrilled when she showed an interest in music. But they wanted her to take up the starflooty, a delicate woodwind instrument. Instead, Scarlet's rebellious nature led her to the drums! As an only child on the road with her family most of the year; Scarlet had to learn how to entertain herself. Scarlet knows she needs to work on opening up to the other girls, but she's been a loner her whole life. She's just not a warm, fuzzy, touchy-feely kind of girl.
Scarlet's wish-granting potential is off the charts. Now if she could only visit Wishworld and grant her own wish - to find a place where she feels comfortable letting her inner light shine through.
She was dismissed from the Star Darlings in Leona's Unlucky Mission, when Lady Stella found out that she (Scarlet) wasn't supposed to be a Star Darling. She then had to move out of her and Leona's shared dorm room and was replaced by Ophelia in Leona's Unlucky Mission and Scarlet Discovers True Strength as both Leona's roommate and a Star Darling. It wasn't until her own book that it was confirmed that she was a Star Darling after all when Ophelia's wish orb came to her and transformed into a Punkypow. As of Cassie Comes Through, she and Leona are roommates once more.
Scarlet has hot-pink hair with streaks of black in it and fuchsia eyes. She wears blacks and pinks and like all Starlings, her skin is slightly sparkly. Her Wish Pendant is a row of star-shaped buckles on each of her boots and they do more than secure them to her feet. They also alert her that she's close to her Wisher! After she was reintegrated back into the Star Darlings, Lady Stella gave her a new pair of boots to replace the ones she had to give back when she was forced out.
Star Darlings must blend in on Wishworld during their missions. Luckily, Wish Pendants have a cloaking device that lets the Star darlings change their appearances.
On Wishworld, Scarlet's bright fuchsia hair is toned down as if she dyed it; her skin loses its sparkle and is flat and freckled; and her outfit transforms from a glowing getup to clothes that are rockin' but won't give away her real identity!
Scarlet's Room Edit
Scarlet designed her space so she can skateboard down its walls. Good thing her board doesn't leave scuff marks! Her drum set is up on a small platform. But no worries about the noise problem; if Leona needs to study, Scarlet can flick on the drum system's self-muting switch and play silent beats all day and night.
Scarlet's staircase leads to a small nook, where she can go for some frequently needed alone time.
