Scarlett is a very beautiful girl, who inherited her mother's thick dark hair which complements her olive skin. Her face is more of an oval than Donatella's and she has a petite nose and "hazel eyes so large she always felt they gave away too much." She has a streak of grey hair after a day was taken from her during Caraval.
Scarlett is the older sister of Donatella, and is fiercely protective of her. She has grown up with stories of Caraval, told by her Nana, and has always wondered from afar of the magic of Caraval.
In Caraval, Scarlett was distrustful of most people, as a result of her abusive father. She is not impulsive; she thinks everything through, and often does not take chances.

In the start of the book, Scarlett is distrustful of most people, as a result of her abusive father. She is not impulsive; she thinks everything through, and often does not take chances. An example of this is when she slaps Julian after he and Tella unwillingly take her off the isle. Unlike Scarlett, Tella is impulsive, reckless and wild, and has a lust for danger and adventure. This is the main reason for Scarlett being so protective of her, as she knows she doesn't always think things through.
The book begins with Scarlett receiving a letter from Legend, after seven years of sending letters. Scarlett goes looking for Donatella to tell her the news, she finds her in the barrel room with Julian.
While Scarlett was informing Donatella about the tickets she received their father, Marcello Dragna, found the three of them in the barrel room.
Marcello hit Tella because he thought Scarlett was with Julian. Julian offered them passage to the isle for free, and told them the ship would set sail at dawn.
Scarlett runs after Tella to stop her from agreeing to Julian's offer, she can't find her so she sends a letter to him from the priests' confessional.
Scarlett meets Julian at midnight and tells him he can have the three tickets as long as he doesn't take Donatella, however before she realized the trap, Julian clamped a cloth over her face and she lost consciousness.
She dreamt of Donatella, and her Nana telling them a story about Legend and how he received his magic.
Scarlett and Donatella are close. They deeply care for one another and blame each other for mistakes. It is revealed that if Scarlett took the blame, Tella would be “punished” by their abusive father. Even with Scarlett’s marriage, Donatella forces Scarlett to go to Caraval by asking Julian to help her do so. Tella saw Scarlett’s stress and insecurities all due to her future marriage and their father and brought her out of her comfort zone. Even if they get in trouble. Scarlett wants to keep Donatella safe and keep her from their abusive father. While Donatella wants Scarlett to have fun and live her life instead of keeping safe.
Julian is first introduced when Scarlet finds him in the winery of her house with her sister Donatella, kissing her. Julian and Scarlett grow on each other during Caraval, Julian pushes her to take risks and go outside her comfort zone. They have a romantic relationship, however when it is revealed Julian is a performer, Scarlett starts to question their relationship. In the end, after Julian promises never to lie to her, Scarlett decides to give their relationship another go. However, in Legendary it is revealed that the Count was played by a performer, Armando. Scarlett feels betrayed and lied to. She agrees to take him back but with a twist. She will also be giving her real fiance (whom she found with the help of Jacks) another chance.
- Scarlett's name means scarlett or red, possibly referencing her tendency to connect emotions to colors.
