My name is Ruby Scarlet Rothschild. If that sounds familiar perhaps you’ve read about me in the society pages? The press love to call me little Lettie. Personally, I prefer Scarlet. Allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. (If you somehow missed my entire life being played out under the media microscope). My grandfather is famously known as the Red Shield. He was one of the big name heroes in the 1960’s. My mother was his sidekick, Red Girl in the seventies after he went public with his identity. Of course you may know my mother by her other name, Robin the Red? Not many heroines are known for turning evil.
There is a bit of a theme and between the three of us, the Rothschild clan shares some similar power traits including the color red. Each of us has the ability to absorb kinetic energy and thus immunity to energy in motion. I store the kinetic energy I absorb which I then use to give myself a physical boost. Don’t think I count only on my powers in a fight. Grandpa made sure to train me on how to take a hit and to give as good as I get.
Things you would know
Little Lettie was born under controversy as the bastard daughter of Robin the Red, a villainess who sought sanctuary with her superhero father. A huge deal was cut and the previous villainess lives under house arrest with her own father as her warden.
Little Lettie never really left the media’s eye as she grew up. Her birthday parties always took place at the Red Mansion and were filled with supers, even her play dates were hero filled. She never was far from a camera or magazine cover.
The media has dubbed her Red Girl II, Red Shield II, and Red Shield Girl, when talking about her super outings.
The Red Mansion was previously the Red Shield’s secret base. It is not a secret any more.
