She used to be raised through her grandmother, an ex-military pilot who now owns a small farm in southern France, who not just taught Scarlet how one can fly a spaceship and shoot a gun, but in addition to have a fit admire and appreciation for nature. i suppose that is loads of issues that entice me approximately her, yet she's been a truly enjoyable personality to jot down! (The best males in Scarlet, Wolf and Captain Thorne, aren't part undesirable either.)
