In fact, she was designed to be one. Her parents, who were early financial backers of Nanite Systems Detroit and profited greatly off of the quite risky investment they placed in the company in its early days, and decided to create and finance from the profits their own robotics research firm that would greatly aid Nanite Systems to the threshold they would be come to be known at today.

However, they were unable to physically have children together, and realized that if something were to happen, there was no one in their family that they trusted enough to be their heir to that money and power, as most of the family were so entangled into the Mafia, an organization they didn't trust and sooner would shut down and...dispose...of anyone who was a part of than fund it. They also didn't want to run the course of adoption, as they didn't know what kind of child they would end up getting from the system in those days, being Detroit. Fortunately for them, all was not lost. Through their backing of Nanite Systems as well as their firm, they knew of people who were well known in the worlds of science and medicine and were able to convince them to aid them in creating a child for them that they would be proud of. So, the scientists they met with agreed to take an egg and sperm and genetically modify them to create for them a daughter who would be far more intelligent than any other human to date by allowing her the ability to use all of her mind at once, not only half of it like most humans; they improved her natural reflexes, allowing her to be nearly three times as agile as the normal human being; she was given extrasensory perception, being able to anticipate what move someone would make and be able to adjust her move accordingly; she was given a photographic memory; and they slowed her natural aging process to half that of a normal human being as well as increased her genetic resilience to most known threats. The new embryo was then placed into an artificial womb that was grafted into her mother in place of her natural one, and they decided to name their daughter-to-be Scarlett.

Scarlett grew up and excelled in school, graduating from high school 2 years ahead of the rest of her class with honors, achieving a GPA of 5.0, developing a keen interest in the fields of biotechnology, cybertechnology, and robotics. From there, she recieved a full academic scholarship to  the Robotics Institute at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

It was while she was in school for a couple of years, though, that she learned of a horrible incident. Her parents had been killed in a horrible incident while visiting a new facility at one of their robotics facilities that had blown up the building they were in, critically-and eventually fatally-wounding her parents in the process. Their injuries were extensive, due to shrapnel penetrating their skull and embedding itself into both of their brain stems, as well as their hearts. By the time they arrived at the University of Michigan Cardiology and Heart Center, it was too late. To make matters worse, the firm's shareholders saw this as a momentous occaision to rush onto the market and not only sell their stock, but the firm's board decided that there was too much risk in remaining open anymore and shut down the firm overnight, citing that they had seen what the city thought about the research being conducted there and had been questioning it for years, and that the PR nightmare this incident would cause would be catastrophic. Scarlett was upset. She had lost her parents and her inheritance overnight. However, she knew that with the right funding, she could keep a situation like this from happening to anyone else. So, she put her effort into her studies, and by 2014, had graduated from CMU with a doctorate in biotechnology-the fastest time that anyone had ever taken to get a doctorate.

Once she had graduated from school and gathered the funding needed to start her own robotics firm by the year 2015, she had heard of the new colony on Eisa being formed, and by a very familiar name to her-Nanite Systems. She had come to trust Nanite Systems very deeply, working with some of their more basic research principles in college and saw an opportunity to work with them more closely, and help take some of their tech and reuse it in the use of biotechnology. So, out of a partnership that was hammered out with the CEO of Nanite Systems, Tammy Peluso, a new sister company to NS was announced and work on their headquarters began on Eisa, headed by Scarlett herself, and called humaCorp, Ltd. Her dream had begun, and the building was completed rather quickly and was opened for business 6 months later. Business took off right from the start, with major hospitals on both Earth and Eisa so interested in the new technologies that humaCorp had thought up that they sent millions to the company in monetary backing for these products-a new artificial heart that tapped into the brain via the spinal cord and worked much the same way as the actual heart would, replacing blood with nanites; a new spinal cord for paralysis victims that not only replaced the spine but tied into the nerve clusters already there via use of nanites, rendering therapy vitrually needless; and spun off of the spinal implant, biomechanical arms that tied into the nerves that were already there and powered themselves like a organic limb would-via brain signals sent down the nerves.

However, it would not be long that another incident would have come up. A few days after the first prototypes of the first humaCorp hearts, spinal implants, and biomechanical arms were designed and stored in their storage facility, Scarlett herself began working on constructing the prototypes of a few pet projects she had thought up for military use: a plugsuit designed for mobility; a synthetic skin-like polymer that would be tougher than normal skin with the common thickness and texture of human skin; and her biggest pride of them all, thermal proplusion boots for humans and implants for the synthetics that would allow a soldier or operative to take to the sky without the sky-high thermal output that would accompany the more traditional jetpack, and to aid in the use of any military use of her arms, decided to program some nanites to alter a skeleton for combative purposes.

Scarlett worked hard overnight to finish these so she could present the prototypes to the military the very next day, and finish them she did. However, she didn't know that there was a bomb set to match her thermal signature near the exit of her lab by a disgruntled employee that she was forced to let go the day before for lack of performance, as she was so engrossed in her work to notice that he had snuck in there before he had left that day. So she, unbeknownst to the risk at hand, had an aide take the prototypes she had just finished to the storage facility for her whilst she cleaned up the lab. Once that was done, she went out as normal, but that bomb went off, sending her flying into the back wall, shattering her spinal cord, her arms, and knocking her out, and the bomb's shrapnel destroyed her ocular nerves and penetrated her heart, as well as covered her body with third degree plasma burns, placing her in the same state that killed her parents. It was then that her aide was coming back in and heard the alarms from her lab, and noticed Scarlett in this condition. So, knowing that the prototypes were designed with the knowledge of NS, rushed her over to the lab area there and explained what happened. Here, they performed together an emergency operation, installing the prototypes into her body and replacing the charred skin with the synthetic polymer. When Scarlett woke up the next morning, she saw her state, and immediately realized what had occurred, and couldn't figure out how she didn't notice that bomb. Knowing that she was no longer in any physical state to run a company now, though, she ordered that humaCorp be shut down for good, and immedately put in an app at NanoSec.

Now, she still lives on NanoSec, but as a cyborg with her biotechnology at her disposal. She now has the very endoskeleton that she designed, as well as the arms she created. NS gave her ocular implants, as the nerves were beyond repair, and gave her the very synthetic polymer to replace her skin that she designed. Her aide took the liberty of upgrading the plugsuit for her with nanoconnectivity interfaces, and they replaced her spine with her prototype implant modified to allow her to operate its power source mentally, an XSU controller powered by a sonofusion battery. They replaced her heart with her artificial heart she designed, and equipped her with NanoSec-grade weaponry and shield at her disposal, and installed in place of her lower legs a modified version of the thermal propulsion boot that she designed specifically for her to tie into her new controller as an implant.

She's not without flaws by this new design that happened to save her life though-when there is a power surge near her, she will lose minor cognitive functionality. Beyond the normal drawbacks of having a Nanite Systems controller, she will also briefly lose her extrasensory perception and her eidetic memory, as well as have her reflexes slow for a brief moment to half that of a normal human's. Her endoskeleton's augments will freeze for a moment as well, and her energy shield will drop momentarily. If she is powered down, the only things that will remain functional is her mind and her heart, as that also draws from her human mind's electrical energies as well. Her endoskeleton and any other augmentations will lose power, as would her controller. On the bright side, though, she no longer requires biological neccessities like food or sleep as her nanitesprovide nutrients for her remaining biological components and her battery her energy supply, so she can remain "functional" as a working operative for NanoSec for a full 24 hours before requiring a charge, unless she takes damage, in which case she would require a repair.
