Scarlet is a British turned American that joined the Stargate Phoenix site due to her skills as an engineer. Granted she is used to creating and building Tau'ri weaponry, some of the alien stuff is not her forte. That does not mean she can't sit down and disassemble it and try to piece it back together to figure it all out. She is still fairly new to the Phoenix site and finding her footing and her place within her group. It hasn't been easy since she also only knows the correct English.
