Useless, useless, useless. I don't have time to let you win.
~ Remilia's victory quote
Don't lump me in with mere youkai. I'm proud and noble.
~ Remilia, to Mokou


Remilia Scarlet is the head of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, the mistress of Sakuya and Meiling, a close friend of Patchouli's, and the older sister of Flandre Scarlet. While she often seems childish and non-threatening, she is incredibly strong and is known across Gensokyo as the "Scarlet Devil".

Upon appearing in Gensokyo in the past, she gathered many youkai under her charisma and went on a rampage before being defeated by a coalition of other powerful youkai, which led to the creation of the Spellcard rules.

Weaknesses: Remilia is burnt when exposed to sunlight or roasted soybeans, and she cannot cross flowing water, or approach a broken holly branch or the head of a sardine. She is also incredibly overconfident and vulnerable to spiritual attacks.

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

- Manipulation of Fate: Remilia apparently has the power to manipulate fate, although the specifics of this power have never been shown, as she has never been shown explicitly using it. Hieda no Akyuu has said that those in her vicinity seem to be followed by bad fortune, and it is said that she can greatly change a life with a single word. Flandre implies that she may be able to read the future, but dismisses this as boasting rather than anything concrete. It also seems to be linked to the red chains she uses in some of her attacks.

- Witching Mist: Remilia can release and shape a thick red mist that she can spread over a wide area. The mist itself is, according to Remilia and Patchouli, composed of minuscule, highly-dense jewels that bend light more than ordinary water droplets can. The wavelength of the refracted light drops past scarlet, and it is diffused and absorbed by the mist, giving it its distinctive scarlet coloration and its other name, the Scarlet Mist. Inhaling the mist makes humans quite ill. Remilia used it to blot out the sun so she could go outside without issue during the Scarlet Mist Incident.
