"The show must go on!"
Soft-spoken and light of frame, Honoka Kawamoto fuses her unique acrobatic talents with no-nonsense kenpo into a potent and unique fighting style. Starting with humble origins, Kawamoto traded her fame as star juggler of the Twilight Star Circus for a successful fighting career, rising to prominence with her teams' prestige finishes in the King of Fighters tournaments. In recent years, the performer has gained renown as an outspoken environmentalist and a tireless advocate for the dwindling Ainu culture. However, beneath Kawamoto's carefully-maintained public persona lurks a secretive underworld shadow. Scarlet Dahlia earned herself a seat at the Shadow Council table as the Machiavellian mastermind of the Rumble in the Streets. When Outworld threatened to take over Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat, it was Dahlia who brokered an alliance between good and evil to triumph as Champion of Earthrealm. Understandably, she's been loath to let anyone forget it ever since, as she works to gird humanity for the inevitable clash with the forces of Outworld.

"Honoka Kawamoto" is a pathological liar who adopts multiple personas to advance her personal agenda.
- As "Honoka Kawamoto" she was the star juggler of the Twilight Star Circus. She had been giving "suggestions" to the circus manager on how to run business. The circus was shut down due to unspecified reasons.
- As "Scarlet Dahlia" she is the de-facto ruler of the Akatsuki-gumi yakuza clan. "Tora" Takanawa heads the ruling council, overseeing clans operated by Kyong Su and Jin "Jaws" Fujiwara. Scarlet Dahlia came to power as the second-in-command of the Maebara clan. More significantly, Scarlet Dahlia is the Champion of Mortal Kombat, having defeated Goro in the tournament and securing Earthrealm from the advances of Outworld.
- As "Miko Kobayashi" she had previously served as a lieutenant to Daigo Kazama, guiding students of Gedo High on gang expeditions.
- As "Shizue Murano" she was the historical consultant -- and unofficially, lead content producer -- for a series of virtual reality programs on the V-Gage Educator virtual reality console.
KNOWN ASSOCIATES (as Honoka Kawamoto):
- Lightning Spangles (on-stage rival)
- Zach Glenn (Ex-Boyfriend)
- Elise Isabela Harkness (Ringmaster/Negotiator, Twilight Star Circus, status: unknown)
- Jun-Hwe "Oboro" Nakashita (Performer/Assassin, Twilight Star Circus, status: unknown)
KNOWN ASSOCIATES (as Scarlet Dahlia):
- Shadaloo (Full partnership)
- R (Arms/weapons sales)
- Kano (Arms, mercenary)
- Skilled at tracking multiple moving objects simultaneously, Honoka can juggle anything she can carry. She specializes in the diabolo and yo-yo tricks.
- Honoka's combat abilities are inspired by a number of divergent techniques. Her diabolo wands are often used as striking weapons in the style of Escrima (the Filipino stick-wielding art) and the sansetsukon (Chinese three-sectioned staff). Her acrobatic style is inspired by taikyokuken and judo.
- Onstage, Honoka has been known to create intricate, life-like illusions with her psychic abilities.
- In stage performances, her psychic attacks often take on pink/purple hues, and are styled to resemble chi attacks. However, this is a conscious effort at showmanship -- in their "natural" state her attacks manifest as invisible waves of force.
- Honoka can also control minds to some degree, through psychic suggestions. These "mind tricks" work best on subjects already agreeable to Honoka, so she usually tries to win people over with words first. Honoka's powers of mind control are especially strong on sleeping subjects.
