Flandre is the younger sister of Remilia and the "dirty little secret" of Scarlet Devil Mansion. Because of her unstable personality and incredible destructive power, her sister has had her ordered not to get out of the mansion for nearly 500 years. She knows little about the world outside and until the heroines arrived during the Extra Stage of Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, she has had no substantive contact with any humans other than Sakuya.

  • Flandre's wings have an unusual appearance which bear almost no resemblance to a vampire's typical bat-like wings (or even organic matter). It has been speculated that her wings are artificial and that she fashioned them herself and then attached them to her body. She may have lost her original wings or been born without them.

Sister of the Devil

Flandre Scarlet

Ability: Destruction of anything and everything

The Extra Boss. Also the Mistress's younger sister.

She is a vampiric magical girl and has been the Scarlet Devil's younger sister for about 495 years.

She's kind of nuts and isn't usually allowed out of the mansion, but she usually doesn't try to let herself out.

She really respects her older sister Remilia, but her raw destructive power far exceeds that of her sister's. Although she is usually docile, her insanity makes it difficult for others to understand her.

When vampires attack humans, they generally try to take their prey alive so that they can suck its blood afterward, but Flandre has always been fed with cooked dishes, so she doesn't know how to properly attack a human. Whenever she tries to attack a human, she can't control herself and blows them away without leaving a spot of blood.

Perhaps she can't tell that her daily meals are made from living humans.

Her meals look like such harmless foodstuffs as cake and tea, after all...


Book Synopsis

Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red

Main article: Article and Interview: Flandre

Aya reports on the strange explosion of a meteorite above Gensokyo. She learns that Flandre was the one who destroyed it, but becomes increasingly confused as Flandre explains she destroyed it by "going 'kyuu'" while holding the eye of the meteorite in her hand. Even more perplexing information is given by Flandre's older sister, Remilia. Apparently, it was planned that the meteorite was supposed to be aimed at the Scarlet Devil Mansion, and that Flandre would destroy it. Inexplicably, Aya ends the article with a report that spring has begun.

In her follow-up, Aya interviews Flandre about the explosion and Remilia's information. Flandre gives the same explanation for how she destroyed the meteorite, and, when questioned, says that her sister just acts like she knows what's happening. Remilia interrupts (for which Aya is thankful), and confirms that what Flandre said was true, insinuating that Aya just can't understand, while giving strange information about the meteorite's source.

Perfect Memento in Strict Sense

PMiSS flandre
Main article: Perfect Memento: Flandre Scarlet
  • Flandre is one of the two vampires at the Scarlet Devil Mansion.
  • Her apparent age is about the same as Remilia Scarlet (who looks to be around 10, even though Remilia is 5 years older and they're both about 500 years old).
  • She apparently rarely, if ever, attends the parties at the mansion.
  • Normally she's locked up in the mansion, but it seems she might actually be a shut-in who stays there willingly.
  • Everyone who enters the mansion hopes they don't run into her, even Marisa.
  • Because she is rarely seen by visitors, there are many mysteries about her.
  • Her seven-colored wings are unlike those of any other creature and most likely can't be used for flying.
  • Even without wings she can fly though, as can many other people.
  • Flandre can destroy anything she wants by moving the "eye" of the object, where the tension is highest, into her hand and pouring her power into it.
  • When she clenches her fist whatever she has moved the "eye" of into her hand will be destroyed.
  • Other than her ability itself, no simple information about it is known.
  • She also has extreme physical strength.
  • Unsurprisingly, all the toys she plays with get broken.
