History

 

As early as 10 years of age, Scarlet was able to use a bow and arrow better than most professional archers. Her parents drilled Scarlet's brother, Ace, and her younger sister, Pink in a highly competitive manner. The father, Ashton, had won the gold medal for archery in the Olympics three times in a row, while Scarlet's mother, Amelia, won the gold twice. The parents hoped that maybe one of them would find their way to Olympic competition one day. Interestingly enough, all three eventually made it to the Olympics.

Scarlet's sister, Pink, was competitive and spirited, usually using the 'help me' mentality to garner more of her parents attention to 'helping' her do better in archery. Scarlet instead was told in her teenage years by her parents to 'suck it up' and 'start showing some self-motivated progress' instead of finding fault with everyone else. Pink didn't help by taunting Scarlet at every turn, mostly in a playful way, but later on, it started to get personal. In their teen years, Scarlet and Pink would routinely break into fist fights with one another in knock-down, drag-out spats.  Ace, the younger brother, was always the peacemaker and had no sides; he loved his sisters equally enough.  Ace also had a natural talent for marksmanship, and although a master in archery in his own right, he preferred rifle sharpshooting events.  When Ace was training with his sisters, he was brutally honest on assessments on each other, including himself. All three of them touted each other on a daily basis in order to get one anther's competitive spirit flowing.  Eventually, that touting paid with a heavy price.

When all three went to the Summer Olympics to compete in their respective archery events, they each made their own way to their related medal rounds.  The media broadcast the archery medal rounds calling it "the most watched Olympic competition event of the games". The media loved the  three siblings' dynamics and their aggressive competitive personalities. Ace and Pink had earned their spots on the Team USA men's and women's teams, respectively, with both taking Bronze medals in their respective team events. Scarlet disliked teams; she believed she'd excel beyond both siblings in individual competitions instead.  Pink and Ace, after winning their medals, were hugging each other and smiling and making cute faces for the media, all while Scarlet was trying to focus. Scarlet wanted the limelight as well and was getting angrier by the minute over the exposure of her siblings to the press while Scarlet had to wait days for her individual events. As a result, one night in the Olympic village, Scarlet exploded in verbal rage against her siblings telling each of them to 'grow up' and start 'acting like adults'.

 

The whole exchange was recorded on social media and went viral in an hour. Scarlet soon starting getting angry face emojis and angry texts from those she thought were her fans.  Scarlet instead grew even angrier and the individual matches finally approached.

For this Olympics, the individual match system had been completely overhauled for the games that year. Though single eliminations with bronze medal matches was retained, the matches now consisted of sets. Each set comprised of both medaling archers shooting three arrows each. The archer with the best score in the set receives two points; if the set is a drawn, each archer receives one point. The match continues until one archer reaches six points. If the match is tied after five sets, a single arrow 'shoot-off' is held with the closest arrow to center winning.

Pink and Scarlet eventually found each other in the single arrow 'shoot-off' against each other.

In their final shots, Scarlet lost by 2mm of distance from Pink's Gold medal shot.

 

Scarlet lost it live on international TV.

 

She went on a tirade in front of the media and cameras, attacking and pummeling Pink in the face.  Their brother, Ace, who was attending as a viewer at Pink's and Scarlet's medal round jumped the barriers, separating the two of them, preaching calm and sportsmanship to Scarlet.  In a fit of rage, Scarlet drew an arrow to shoot a crippling shot at Pink's bow hand, however, Ace intercepted the arrow...with his body.

 

It went straight through his heart, causing Ace to die instantly.

 

As the media and spectators looked on in shock and awe of what had transpired, the siblings parents screamed at Scarlet, saying she was no longer their daughter; she was disowned. 

 

Scarlet put an arrow through each of her parents heads.

 

As Scarlet was reeling about to shoot Pink next, Pink attacked Scarlet in utter despair.  The two fought savagely before the cameras of the world.  Eventually, Olympic security shot Scarlet in the bow arm and leg.  Scarlet ran off, never to be seen as the girl she once was. 

 

After the brother and parents funerals, Pink recovered, and eventually joined the superhero team, the Challengers as "Pink Arrow" at the bequest of the team leader, Major Deej. Scarlet on the other hand, went into a VERY dark place.

Scarlet found herself on skid row, drunk, strung on on heroine and meth, selling herself for sex to pay for a flea bag hotel, and all the while hating Pink and the regular world more and more for what 'they' made 'her' do.

After a few years, Scarlet encountered a mercenary who went by the code-name "Redshot".  He'd bought Scarlet for a couple nights as a call girl and instead discovered who she really was.  After testing her archery skills (which even in Scarlet's sad physical and mental state, her skills presented themselves as a professional's second nature), she was able to hit the bulls-eye every time.  As such, Redshot got her out of the drugs, alcohol and prostitution and got her cleaned up and back into being a functional human being.  It was a rough time for both of them getting her clean, but eventually Scarlet got off the drugs and alcohol. The sex, however, well, Scarlet wasn't being prostituted out anymore (Redshot killed her sleazeball pimp), but she and Redshot quickly became quite adept in each other's carnal pleasures...

Recently, Redshot went out as an assassin on a Death Legion 'mark' (hit) and brought along Scarlet, whom he now named "Redbow" for her bloody bow she still had from the Olympics.  During that assassination, Redshot got into trouble and thanks to Scarlet as Redbow, she saved him by killing seven security men that were trying to kill Redshot.  They quickly realized they were made for each other, and since then, have been a duo of of love, sex, adventure, assassinations, excitement...and killing.

Today, Redbow is still madly in love with Redshot and continue to do contract assassination work together through Death Legion. They complement each other well in their skills are are adrenaline junkies as well as psychopathic killers.  Together, they are truly seeing 'red'...

NOTE: To this day, Pink Arrow still has no idea what happened to her sister Scarlet.  She's seen reports and files on Redbow, but thanks to the drugs, different hair and smoking, Pink doesn't even recognize Redbow as her sister.  Redbow, however, knows that Pink Arrow is indeed her sister, Pink...
