Character Challenge: Scarlett vs. Jenn – Most Dangerous & Deadly Slayer

This week we get back to our more violent match-ups; two female characters, who have spent years of their lives dedicated to hunting down the things that go bump in the night, will face off for the title of Dangerous and Deadly Slayer. We have Scarlett March from The Sisters Red by Jackson Pierce and Jenn Leitner from the Crusade series by Nancy Holder and Debby Viguie. Now gals (and guys) like most of our match-ups, we will look at the usual things: back story-what made them become a monster slayer, the weapons/allies they have, then of course OUR EPIC BATTLE where we see what would happen if the two girls had to face off against each other.  Since the two kill monsters, we’ll simply have the girls battle it out until first blood is drawn (I don’t feel comfortable killing one of them off). So let’s get started!

The Scenario
Lets imagine that both Scarlett and Jenn (the girls who overuse the same letter twice at the end of their names) meet up at a gym or something. It’s a dark night, the howl of Fenris, the hiss of Vampires, all that cliché drama that adds to the intense feeling growing in your stomach. They both enter the gym, clothed in battle gear, they face each other. One of them might taunt the other, saying that they are obviously the better trained Slayer. One of them might tell the other to get ready to eat their words. Whatever the situation (heh… situation) might be, it leads up to this: Scarlett and Jenn face off…freeze frame
So let’s see what leads our ladies to the awesome world of “Slayer-hood” (Marks, yes I said it, marks for the more tragic story/better reason to go about killing beasties).
Scarlett

It all happened the night that Scarlett’s Grandmother was murdered by a Fenris (fancy word for werewolf) in her own house. That same night, Scarlett risked her life defending her younger sister, Rosie. The result was having half of her body mauled by the creature before she could kill it. Now scarred up, Scarlett sent herself and Rosie on a quest for revenge, by killing every single Fenris they came across. Attracting them by wearing red cloaks before chopping them up with axes, Scarlett will stop at nothing until every Fenris is gone (high ambitions, there).

VS.
Jenn

Inspired by her grandparents, and more than willing to defend humanity, Jenn spent the past two years of her life training at the Salamanca Academy to learn how to fight against Cursed Ones (fancy word for vampire). So Jenn has a few more things going on than Scarlett (is it because Jenn has two books in her series?): her vampire boyfriend, Antonio, went crazy and she almost had to kill him and her Dad betrayed her. Her sister got kidnapped… then turned into the thing she’s been training to destroy. (SPOILER) Then her house gets burned down and all of her training mates get killed… Just another regular day in the life of a slayer.


After carefully picking and choosing, we have finally found out who would have more of a tragic story. Which would lead to who has a better reason of becoming a monster slayer. For both girls, we have a lot of reasons, most of them are motives for revenge, though most of the ones I brought up for Jenn happened during her time as a Slayer not before. And nobody, really you know… died (Except for her sister, but she came back you know). So congrats, Scarlett! You are one step closer to becoming the most Dangerous and Deadly Slayer!
Let’s see what these ladies have packed in their arsenals, and

 

whose useful on their facebook friends list.
Scarlett
Jenn
-Her Axe
-Her Cloak.
-Knowledge in various martial arts.
-Can use the environment around her.
-Her sister and slaying partner, Rosie.
-Her best friend Silas.
-Trained since a young age.
-Agile.
-Hard core upper/lower body strength.
-Her scars to remind her why she’s doing what it is she’s dong.

-Knowledge in various martial arts.
-Trained for two years.
-Should be Agile.
-Should be flexible.
-Her team of slayers (Eriko, Holgar, Jamie, Antonio, Skye, etc.)

 

Dangerous… I like it! So when I think about it, it looks like these two are pretty even when it comes down to terms of abilities and weapons and friend requests! Do you know what that means? I do too. A draw! Congrats you two, sharing this round!!

It’s all come down to this… the epic (sort of dueling) battle where Scarlett and Jenn face off. Who will get cut? Who will throw in the towel?  Only time will tell. The winner is determined by first blood… BEGIN!

…Let’s play the scenario again when this information comes into play…
if we could do video re-inactments, it would be so awesome…for now let’s use our imaginations that we reader’s are famous for…

Lets imagine that both Scarlett and Jenn met up at a gym or something. It’s a dark night, the howl of Fenris the hiss of Vampires, all that cliché drama that adds to the intense feeling growing in your stomach. They both enter the gym, clothed in battle gear, they face each other. One of them might taunt the other, saying that they are obviously the better trained Slayer. One of them might tell the other to get ready to eat their words. Whatever the situation might be, it leads up to this: Scarlett and Jenn face off, Scarlett has her axe out and since she’s spent all of her time as a slayer playing the innocent victim, she already knows when Jenn is going to come at her. Scarlett would take that opportunity to turn the tables, bringing her axe up- getting ready to draw first blood. Jenn would have some holy water of some sort on her, she would throw it into the other girl’s eye. Jenn would double backwards. They would play this game of tag for a while, going in, hitting the other then falling back when it seems too dangerous. They wouldn’t get tired. They both have trained almost equally.
There’s just one problem. One of the girls has been training longer than the other. That will make all the difference. One of the girls has been doing this for almost all of her life. It’s obvious that that girl is the one that wins. Scarlett would use some sort of martial arts move that would hit Jenn not only in the face, but take her down at the same time. Withdrawing her axe, she would slice a part of Jenn’s arm. First blood drawn. We have our winner.

That’s how it ends lovelies. It was a close match-up. I could have made it so that they drew first blood at the same time, but Scarlett has had more time to practice her ways of kick-butt fighting. Such a close fight, like a fraction of a second close. THAT CLOSE!!! But there can only be one deadliest slayerer (that’s right I put an extra er so it sounded like warrior) and that is *cue the eerie silence, then the following drum roll and applause* Scarlett!! You’ve made your family proud. Now don’t make us look stupid for giving you that title, if there’s ever a sequel to Sister’s Red

Results:  Most Dangerous & Deadly Slayer – Scarlett, Sister’s Red

Agree? Disagree? Leave comments…let us know what should change, what was missed! This is purely just my opinion :)
If you have any suggestions for future CC’s (Character Challenge) let us know! Stay tuned for next week’s line up.

    I really enjoy your character challenges! They are always so interesting. You must put a lot of work into it! Though I haven't read either of these books after reading everything I would definitely agree that Scarlett would win! Great post!
