Character: Remilia Scarlet
Timeline: canon: post-Hisoutensoku, A-Fac: post Week 162
Remilia could be most accurately summed up as "Chaotic Neutral." She has her own goals. and she'll be dammed if anyone gets in her way, whether they're fighting for Gensokyo's good or Gensokyo's complete incineration.

She is a 500 year old vampire, yet has the appearance of a ten-year-old girl. That in itself showcases the two sides to her personality. On one hand, she definitely can act how she appears--like a spoiled, selfish brat. Throughout her scenario in Immaterial and Missing Power, she gets upset at the lack of "respect" she gets from the others. Which, in essence, is total obedience. Her views of self-entitlement are very, very strong, and if she does not feel they are fulfilled, there will be hell to pay in the form of Remilia knocking your door off of its hinges. She is used to getting everything that she wants, immediately when she wants it. She has a habit of thinking everything and everyone is hers--your house? Better bring her some tea. Your sunny village? Too sunny for her tastes.

Remilia is the mistress of the Scarlet Devil Mansion, and the master of the absurdly-powerful Sakuya for a reason, though. She can be mature when the situation calls for it. In the heat of the moment, her charisma is to the level of a queen, and her words can ring powerful enough to command an entire army. Remilia is a lady of high court--she knows the proper manners and table places, and she can throw one hell of a banquet. That's charisma for you. She does know the difference between right and wrong, and can be counted on to make a wise decision. For instance, she sealed her younger sister Flandre up in the basement not out of malice, but out of worry--that Flandre would blow up Gensokyo on a bad day, with her uncontrollable power.

Another notable facet of Remi is her fierce loyalty--you screw with her employees, you screw with The Scarlet Devil herself. It's implied she'd raised Sakuya, and lets Patchouli live at the mansion out of pure friendship and kindness. No one screws with Flandre, period. She holds immense pride in being a vampire (perhaps why her wings are always out), and will not hesitate to speak ill of anyone who says otherwise. She does like humans, though, and never kills the ones she feeds from (and therefore finds no reason to kill humans at all).

Remi really, really just wants to have a good time. The whole reason she blotted out the sun in EoSD was so she could go outside like a normal human. She's frequently seen drinking tea and eating pastries even though they give her no nutritional value. Her attitude is more easy going than uptight (except those moments when she has her dignity to defend), and more often than not things will "bore" her and receive only a shrug.

Her personality changes from being in A-Fac:
Most notably, Remilia's sense of pride and egoism has been severely reduced. While she still does, undeniably, have pride in her family name and her species, she doesn't view herself as the single greatest thing to ever walk the face of the planet, as she's slowly starting to come to terms with the whole "clone" business. Her "protective" level has gone up a billion notches as well, from already having Meiling, Flandre, and Sakuya all taken from her. Those she values now have a permanent spot under her wing, and anyone who harms them will find themselves tied to a chair with their own intestines. Or something akin to that. Her "charisma" levels have gone down a lot as well, as being in the completely desperate environment she was lead her to change her belief of 'if you must do it, do it gracefully'--survival was her goal, and so she adapted. Whereas the canon Remilia dislikes violence for violence's sake and won't get her hands dirty unless it's necessary, Remilia from the Facility has come to terms with doing dirty work if that's what she needs to do to fend for herself. She will not hesitate to swear and use harsh language, unlike her canon counterpart, and her battle tactics are less about strategy and more about pure brute force; read: overkill has become her new best friend.

She may or may not begin to change back to her old self, or at least reduce her paranoia and stress, by being in 3step, as laid back as it is.

A while in the past, Remilia and her sister Flandre fled from their home and moved into Gensokyo. Not much else is known about them before that, other than that Remilia befriended a witch named Patchouli, and hired two servants: Meiling, a gatekeeper, and Sakuya, a maid.

During the events of Embodiment of the Scarlet Devil, Remilia grew tired of going outside with her parasol, and released a red mist into the sky, blocking out the sun. She did this completely for her own gain, and was subsequently beaten up by Reimu and Marisa. After that, she quickly became a prominent character.

She has her own storyline in Immaterial and Missing Power, in which she encounters Suika Ibuki while "on a midnight trip to bring terror to Gensokyo," and she sends out Sakuya, to investigate the neverending winter in Perfect Cherry Blossom.

Her next major role was in Imperishable Night. Remilia heads out to find the cause of the fake moon, and is followed by Sakuya. After a few detours, they are pointed in the right direction, but are again interrupted by Reimu. Remilia achieves her "revenge" for Reimu winning the fight in EoSD, and she and Sakuya make their way to Eientei. There, they discover the truth about the fake moon, and defeat Kaguya, who in turn asks them to assassinate her rival, Mokou. Mokou is immortal, however, and upon discovering this Remilia takes an interest turning Sakuya the same, though the latter declines.

Remilia has a minor role in Shoot the Bullet, wherein she is chased down and photographed by Aya Shameimaru. In Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, Remilia returns with a storyline, in which she attempts to find the mastermind behind Gensokyo's fluctuating weather by having Sakuya kidnap "suspects" for interrogation. In the end, she is visited by Yukari Yakumo, who explains things to her. She appears in the arcade mode of Unthinkable Natural Law/Touhou Hisoutensoku, and exchanges dialogue with the characters there.

Remilia spent approximately seven and a half months in [community profile] a_facility . In short, it was a very stressful and dangerous setting, during which she died multiple times, amassed numerous bodily injuries, made some enemies, and had a closer (if it's possible) relationship with Patchouli. A full writeup of her history can be found here, though please note it's extremely long.
Abilities/Additional Notes:
Remi's unique ablity is "manipulation of fate." This is not very well explained in canon, though it's typically made out to be something like "the ability to alter the outcome of an individual's life or a fight." It's almost always used long-term, and has no visible immediate effects. She can also morph herself into a nigh-endless swarm of bats, and is able to regenerate from a single scrap of flesh. She can summon the spear of Gungnir, aka that pulsing red spear used by the Norse god Odin, said to always hit its target with 100% accuracy. In terms of more general abilities, Remilia is extremely fast and extremely strong, can fly, and makes use of danmaku in fights.

Additionally, unique to Fac!Remilia, is her clone state. In the game proper, she is a complete clone of the canon Remilia, with her abilities, appearance, memories, and personality. However, she is prone to clone sickness, randomly dropping comatose on the floor. She will, most of the time, recover and be back in tip-top shape, however it can occasionally result in a complete failure of her cardiovascular system, resulting in death.

She also has a lot of scars. No, really, a lot. Third-degree burns over most of her body, a tear in her right wing, and heterochromatic eyes (one her birth color red, and one blue), as of note.
