At a young age, she watches her mother die at the hands of a terminal illness. It had been a confusing time for a young girl barely capable of comprehending the finality of death. Soon after, Scarlett is adopted under the care of The Order - a sect run by Djinn with several alliances with other groups. It is there that she is not raised as a daughter but as a tool. She sleeps in barracks with other orphaned, vulnerable children. Each one of them fleshed out of childhood early and into something other. Scarlett hones a multitude of skills from reading and writing to physical combat and mythical studies.
By the time she reaches her early teens she gains the favor of the clergy and is swiftly alienated from her peers as a result. Her training grows more strenuous as does the pressure on her shoulders. Many eyes are on her and there is little room for error than ever before. Then one day, the line of duty is blurred as firm hands touch her lithe body in the name of the greater good, or so they say. Scarlett is hollow throughout the ordeal. A new routine of tutoring begins.
Once she is a young woman, Scarlett is given her first task as an official member of The Order. Her mission is to extract information and bestow punishment upon a human man that has murdered two of their kind. A young male Djinn that was sent before her mysteriously goes missing, and so she is instructed to approach under the guise of a fellow researcher and peace offering. For the first time in forever, she sleeps under a roof that is not keenly watched under the eyes of The Order. For the first time in forever, she dreams of something warm and bubbly.
She learns that the man she is sent to kill is called Jasper Holstein. He is not a fool. Not a bone in his body believes her presence to be a genuine peace offering. However, in favor of fabricating a temporary alliance with The Order, he accepts Scarlett under his watch as an assistant to his research. Somehow they manage to settle on an agreeable, albeit awkward, working arrangement. After months of delicately dancing around one another, Scarlett finds chinks are developing in her armor the more she learns about Mr. Holstein.
It is inevitable that she falls in love with him, she thinks. Her affections for Mr. Holstein grow out of control when her loyalty to the sect is questioned. The reports she sends back to them come and go at infrequent intervals and gradually contain fewer useful pieces of information. After a year of her living with Mr. Holstein, a letter requesting her presence back at The Order waits for her on the end of her bed. Upon her arrival, she is immediately ordered to terminate Jasper Holstein and return to the sect.
Scarlett confides in Mr. Holstein, spilling the nature of her mission and the conflict she felt in completing it due to her feelings the moment she returns to his home. She never had the foresight to think his research meant more to him than her. He cages her in his lab and proclaims that if she loved him she would do as he says. And she loved him, she loved him so much that she endured the truth that he did not love her if it meant she could still hold him close.
However, once The Order caught wind of the situation, an ambush was sent to Mr. Holstein's home. He was killed - and along with it, Scarlett's loyalty to the sect. Those sent to rescue her were killed by her hands. Scarlett came out of that battle bathed in blood and soot from a blazing fire.

Okay, I'm kind of a bad guy."
