Character Challenge: Rose vs. Izzy - Most Lethal Lady

Hey guys, this week we're going to check out something that is a bit similar to the Patch/Jace match-up (aren't you excited? No? Well you should be!) It's another one of those situations that I just need to see happen...what would happen if you took Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments series and Rose from the Vampire Academy series and put them against each other? Which of the girls would prove to be more skilled and dangerous? Which of the two would be the more dangerous? Well guess what everybody, we are about to find out. This week we'll be checking out their past, their arsenal and our character battle!!! All to see who wins the title of:

Lethal Lady.

P.S. There might be spoilers. Your first and only warning.

The Scenario
It's been a long night- Isabelle just killed a demon that has been known for stealing cookies and tip jars while Rose just finished staking a Strigoi outside of the movie theater after he threatened to eat Lissa (because Strigoi always ruin Friday night movies) and began talking about all of the good times he used to have with one Dimitri Belikov. As Lissa and Rose walk away from the theater, waiting for the alchemists to come and clean up the Strigoi corpse, they take a back alley detour unknowingly approaching a figure killing something with purple skin that just killed some human. The figure rises, turns around and appears to be Isabelle. She sees Lissa whose fangs have extended from the blood pooling from the human body a few feet away from the dead purple demon.

Let's see what made these two girls so scary (worth marks).
Rose Hatheway


Rose is a seventeen year old dhampir (half-human, half-moroi). She ran away from St. Vladimir Academy with her vampire Princess/Best Friend Lissa, only to find herself dragged back by a Guardian who would one day end up being her forbidden lover (*cough* Dimitri *cough*). But that is hardly the reason why Rose Hathaway is so frightening and maybe it's because she died in a car accident with the rest of Princess/ Best Friend Lissa's family and was then brought back to life by Lissa using the extremely rare element of spirit creating a bond between the two girls. Maybe that's the reason why. Maybe it isn't. All I know is that our sources here at Chappy by Chappy say that it's because she has been trained all her life (except for when she left St. Vladimir's) to be able to hunt and kill the Strigoi aka. bad vampires. Plus attacking things is basically second nature for Rose.
 VS.
Isabelle Lightwood

Isabelle is a sixteen year old Shadow Hunter (Nephilim) living in NYC at the institute with her two biological brother's Alec and Max (though he dies at one point- but we'll get to that in a minute) and her adopted brother Jace. Izzy is often viewed as rebellious for dating downworlders (but who wouldn't? Vampires, werewolves and faeries it's like living in a novel! Wait a minute...) and is very protective of her brothers. Like most Shadow Hunter's Izzy was trained from a young age to be able to kill any demons that stand in her way. So why is she dangerous? Maybe it's because she killed the guy who murdered her little brother. Maybe it's because she's so pretty she easily seduced a demon into following her before killing it (as seen in City of Bones) or maybe it's because she uses a whip as her signature weapon. All I know is that I wouldn't want to get her mad.

Interesting. Both of them have been training since they were kiddies, they both kill the bad guys. Could we have had a more similair match-up? I'm calling a tie!

Now let's see what these ladies have packed in their purses (or boots/wrist for you Isabelle) worth marks.

Rose Hatheway:
Isabelle Lightwood:
-Silver stakes.
-Enhanced strength and speed
(Dhampir ability).
-She's Shadow Kissed.
-Trained in various martial arts.
-Enhanced agility.
-Enhanced stamina.
-Quick thinker.
-Resourceful.
-The Stele used to carve runes though Izzy uses it more for healing purposes.
-She has Angel Blood.
-Trained for all her life on how to kill all those things that your parents tell you don't exist...
-She has marks.
-Izzy has superhuman physiology.
-Izzy's whip that she keeps wrapped around her wrist (que the snap sound)
-Daggers.
-She once used an angel blade.
-She has weapons hidden in her tall boots.


Well after long consideration I have decided that full marks go to Isabelle. 
She just seems to have more useful stuff, you know?

Now the moment we have all been waiting for!! Our super scary match-up where both girls would find each other, pit up against the other in a fight to the DEATH!!!! Yeah. I went there. Who are you cheering on? Who do you think will lose? Did you notice I made more original questions? Do you want me to stop so we can get to the challenge? Alrightie then.

The Scenario
Let's jump straight into the situation...It's been a long night- Isabelle just killed a demon that has been known for stealing cookies and tip jars while Rose just finished staking a Strigoi outside of the movie theater after he threatened to eat Lissa (because Strigoi always ruin Friday night movies) and began talking about all of the good times he used to have with one Dimitri Belikov. As Lissa and Rose walk away from the theater, waiting for the alchemists to come and clean up the Strigoi corpse they take a back alley detour unknowingly approaching a figure killing something with purple skin that just killed some human. The figure rises, turns around and appears to be Isabelle. She sees Lissa whose fangs have extended from the blood pooling from the human body a few feet away from the dead purple demon.

Isabelle takes Lissa for a threat (because in Mortal Instruments, some vampires aren't nice and we can't take any chances) and tries to attack her by snapping her whip at Lissa's throat. Rose grabs the whip mid-air and the two enter a battle of circling, strategics and using the weapons that the two have on hand. Rose only has one stake on her but...oh no! She just used it to kill that Strigoi outside of the movie theater. She has to go hand to whip against Isabelle! Rose gets a few good hits in, being resourcefu,l she uses a broken beer bottle as her weapon but it probably doesn't fare well against Isabelle's whip. The two struggle around, Rose evades, Isabelle evades, Rose gets a hit in, Isabelle gets a hit in and it shows just how equally their skill levels are. But despite Rose being used to fighting the big bad Strigoi, she hasn't dealt with Shadow Hunters who have fought things a lot worse than Strigoi. So at the end of the day when Rose is exhausted (even for a Dhampir), Isabelle just has to crack her whip one final time and it's obvious how this fight ends.

I really am happy that Izzy got to be victorious. I'm kinda mad that my favorite slayer Rose lost for the first time ever. All I know is that we finally know who gets our title. 
Congratulations Isabelle Lightwood for getting to win the title of Lethal Lady! Now go tuck that title into your tall boots and show it off!

I don't actually know Rose, so I would have DEFINITELY voted for Izzy!
