Skarlet as our "vampire" character
03/12/2019 05:03 PM EST

Just wanted to throw this topic out there. Since Skarlet uses blood magic, would you consider her a "vampire" character. That being said, Vaeternus be represented by her in a since since Nitara isn't featured?

What does everyone think?

Skarlet already has an established backstory. She's a construct made by Shao Kahn from the blood of fallen warriors. Similar to Ermac, except with blood instead of souls.

For that reason no, I do not consider her a vampire, nor would I want her to represent Vaeternus, because it conflicts with her established backstory. She's not from Vaeternus. She's from Outworld.

No thanks.

If that realm is going to be represented in a new MK game, Nitara should be the one filling that role.

I wonder would Nitara see Skarlet as one big walking talking delicious looking bacon cheeseburger.

Nah, and if this is a "characters are just functions" argument then I can easily propose other ways to handle Nitara rather than have her revolve around blood magic.

Like, oh I don't know, have her move set revolve around summoning bats? Transforming into beasts? Flying?

Her spitting up blood always irked me anyway.

Why would a vampire sacrifice
