Scarlet Hair is a boss in Final Fantasy IX. He is the comrade of Lani, and they both were ordered by Queen Brahne to retrieve Garnet's pendant. In Madain Sari, Lani takes Eiko as a hostage, forcing the party to surrender the pendant. "Scarlet Hair" objects to her methods and ends their alliance. After Lani flees, the Scarlet hair challenges Zidane to a one on one battle. He joins the party as Amarant, or whatever the player chooses to name him after being defeated.

Battle Edit

Though Zidane is alone in this battle, it is not too difficult to win. Scarlet Hair will spend many turns simply dancing around the battlefield, during which his Evasion will be higher and will Counter if attacked. Equip Zidane with his own Counter ability to even the odds. Distract will help Zidane evade physical attacks. It is a good idea bring Zidane near to getting to Trance so he can defeat Scarlet Hair with his Trance's skills. MP Attack and Man Eater can also increase Zidane's damage-dealing potential.

Etymology Edit

Scarlet is a bright red with a slight orange tinge. Scarlet and other bright shades of red are associated with courage, force, passion, heat, and joy. In the Roman Catholic Church, scarlet is worn by a cardinal, and is associated with the blood of Christ and the Christian martyrs, and with sacrifice. Scarlet is also often associated with immorality and sin, particularly prostitution or adultery, largely because of a passage referring to "The Great Harlot", "dressed in purple and scarlet", in the Bible.
