This book is a worshipful, some say exaggerated, history of Knothole Glade's most famous Balverine Slayer, Scarlet Robe. It tells the story of her first encounter with one of the beasts, at the tender age of fifteen, when she astounded Knothole Glade's elder warriors by killing a particularly fierce Balverine using only a piece of wood. It goes on to give a detailed account of her stay with the Heroes' Guild, her pivotal role in the Great Balverine Extermination battle and her triumph in the Arena.
In Fable: TLC and Fable Anniversary, this book can be donated to the school in Bowerstone South as part of the quest Book Collection. Once donated, Mr. Gout, the headmaster, will teach his students a lesson on the book:
Mr. Gout: Balverines are the fiercest creatures in Albion, but there was once a brave young girl for whom they held no fear. One day a beast attacked Knothole Glade, where she lived. The villagers all ran away, until she alone stood to face it. The creature was twice her size, and she fought its teeth and claws armed only with a stake. By the time the warriors arrived, the beast lay dead at the girl's feet, and her dress was soaked with its blood. From that day forth she was known to all as Scarlet Robe. As she grew older, she became a great Hero, driving the evil Balverines from much of Albion and competing in the Witchwood Arena...
