How Skarlet joined the Tourney
The female kombatant known as Skarlet is actually a being made by Shao Kahn himself, due to the fact that he trusted very few people. Shao Kahn created Skarlet by collecting the blood of countless warriors, and infusing them with sorcery. A literally bloodthirsty warrior, Skarlet gained strength from the blood of her opponents, which meant that she was only released by her master as a last resort. As such, she is typically kept chained until he had a need of her services.
After failing Shao Kahn during the Earthrealm invasion, Skarlet sought to find a vessel in hopes of resurrecting Shao Kahn. She found it in a girl named Nutmeg.
