Scarlette, (PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street) née Lucita Marne (AUDIO: The Ship of a Billion Years, PROSE: Cobweb and Ivory) and known as Isobel in her youth, (COMIC: Political Animals) was the owner of a brothel on Henrietta Street in the early 1780s. Scarlette married the Eighth Doctor as part of a ceremony to bind him with the Earth. (PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street)

Early life[]

This section's awfully stubby.

Please help by adding some more information.

Scarlette was "born" in 1762. (PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street, AUDIO: The Ship of a Billion Years) More precisely, she was created in a remembrance tank in a Faction Paradox race bank in Civita and discovered by Astarte and Corwyn Marne, who named her "Lucita". (AUDIO: The Ship of a Billion Years)

As "Isobel"[]

In 1774, Isobel assisted Snaddon in caring for George III's royal menagerie. When Mother Francesca of Faction Paradox caught her eavesdropping on a conversation about the War in Heaven, the woman helped her ride the King's woolly mammoth. (COMIC: Political Animals) Avus briefly saw Lucita tending to the mammoth during his Praxis-induced vision. (PROSE: Cobweb and Ivory)

After Mayakatula escaped her cell, Isobel confronted her in a church, and Mayakatula began to teach her the ways of the Mayakai. (COMIC: Bêtes Noires & Dark Horses, PROSE: The Adventuress of Henrietta Street)

A girl with George's woolly mammoth briefly appeared in a non sequitur clip from Michael Brookhaven's film Mujun: The Ghost Kingdom. The girl was stated to be the daughter of one of the main characters, (PROSE: The Book of the War) for she was a child of Faction Paradox. (AUDIO: The Ship of a Billion Years)

The Babewyn invasion[]

Long before meeting Scarlette, the Eighth Doctor had a vision of "a young woman in a scarlet tunic with long blonde hair" while he was exposed to temporal energies on the Supremacy. (PROSE: Father Time)

Scarlette was the owner of the Henrietta Street House. She wore a totemic piece of glass on a cord around her neck. In 1782, she used her Mayakai training to help the Eighth Doctor coordinate a defence against a new danger from outside the conscious universe. She married the Doctor in a ceremony designed to symbolically bind the Doctor to Earth and allow him to participate in its defence; however, over their time together, the two actually fell in love, the ceremony developing a deeper meaning for both parties.

However, recognising that the Doctor's feelings for her would keep him on Earth when he needed to continue helping other worlds, Scarlette faked her death once the crisis was over, leaving the Henrietta Street House to Lisa-Beth Lachlan and leaving England altogether in late 1783. She would go on to feature in innumerable tales told in ritualist circles: her confrontation of George Washington in America after the Siege; her role as Mistress of the Revolution in Paris in 1789; her visit to Egypt during its occupation by Napoleon; and her presence at the Battle of Trafalgar.
