Had to wait 'til I was gone to start Remi's discussion didn't ya'. That said, I apologize to the Lunar Corps, I have failed them.
You're one of those, right?
Can't stand sunlight or odorous vegetables,
or silver things.
You know, the masters of the night with
tons of weaknesses for some reason... -Marisa Kirisame
Defeating or blah blah blah...
You're not far comparative with me, OK?
Don't tell me that the crude native like you,
can defeat the noble aristocrat like me. -Remilia Scarlet versus Suika
Remilia's power is to manipulate fate. It is unknown if she can use it consciously, but once you meet her your fate has changed.
Remilia also has the power to control demons apparently and also has some oni powers. She's still weaker than an Oni though.
If enough of her is large enough to into a bat, she can regenerate from any attack at any time.
She also wields the spear, Gungnir. In Norse mythology, this spear was wielded by Odin, the King of the people of Asgard. It was fashioned by, humorously given previous conversation, dwarves, and stolen by Loki. According to Marvel, it's wielder can channel their energy through it to shoot laser beams. Not really canon, but it explains it's danmaku capabilities. For more info, read Clarste's write-up.
She is highly charismatic, because she knows she is feared and likes to maintain her image.
She is a light eater, and is unable to drink enough blood to make another person into a vampire. It is stated by ZUN that the people she drinks often become anemic.
She likes to claim she is the descendant of Vlad "Dracula" Tepes. She is not.
She was 500 years old as of her game, making her one of the few characters who have a canon age. Excluding Flandre, I think the only others who can say that are PC-98.
She all the classic vampire weaknesses except crosses. Other than crosses she has all the weaknesses. All of them.
She uses arrows as weapons, and can spawn bats from herself for familiars.
She can go outside on sunny days by using a parasol.
She is believed to descend from France because of the etymology of Scarlet. The male name Rémy is popular in France, however ZUN made up the name Remilia. Remigia is the female of Rémy.
Septette for the Dead Princess: I can see why many people like, It personally isn't my favorite theme however. I particularly like the bit at the one minute mark on the original though. I like the SWR version the best.
ZUN states that Remilia is egotistical and childish despite her age. I tend to agree. Still with all her charisma and intimidation tactics, I imagine there is another side of her too. A cool, calculating side that sits upon her balcony seeing not Gensokyo, but a world for her kind to conquer. Then, I imagine her childish side takes over again and she realizes that "ruling Gensokyo would be boring, and where is Sakuya, I asked for tea 30 seconds ago." I think that she is closer to her sister than some people think and further from her than others think. They live in the same house, they are sisters, they probably hang out together, but Remilia has her own plans that involve leaving the house, and Flandre doesn't care for that. Since Meiling has served her for some time now I imagine she is quite friendly with her, but I assume they don't interact often. Maybe only when the Tengu drop off the new issue of Tengu Jump, as it will forever on be known. Patchy is her friend, but I'm still not sure how to describe their relationship. Patchouli seems to stay underground all day while, ironically, the vampire prefers to go outside. Sakuya is still fairly new to the mansion. I don't believe she has served Remilia for very long. She probably cares for Rémi more than Rémi cares for her, but their dialogues make me believe that she at least trusts her maid.
I'll add some quotes later, I want some good one for Remilia since she's been in many a game.

I have no horse, and I must ride.
I accomplish unlockments.
