A celebrity diva known for her charity, Eliza has been a host to the skeletal Parasite Sekhmet for countless years, completely internal and hidden from everyone. In reality, Eliza's charity blood drives primarily serve to feed Sekhmet and preserve her own beauty. When the Medicis found out, they blackmailed Eliza and forced her to use her vampiric abilities for their own purposes. Now forced into the pursuit for the Skull Heart, an ancient ambition stirs... one that Samson and Leviathan are all too familiar with.[1]

In a nutshell
As the hottest lounge act at Club 28, Eliza mesmerizes crowds with her golden microphone stand, the Staff of Ra, as effortlessly as she swings it during her massive normal moves. Her bodyguards, Albus and Horace, are quick to defend Eliza should the fans get too close. Even though her talent and fame are enough to win a fight, she hides her true strength just under her shiny tan; unleashing Sekhmet puts the skeletal parasite under direct player control with her own set of abusive attacks. Eliza must first satisfy her hunger for Tension to satisfy Sekhmet's hunger for blood, so she is best played on a team that can help build meter and take advantage of her Sequel-friendly set of Blockbusters.


Walk: Slow

Dash or Run: Eliza has a very long, slow forward dash and a slow backward run that will end after a set distance.

Signature Techniques

  • Sekhmet does stuff!
    • qcb+P ejects Sekhmet with the appropriate attack. Sekhmet remains under player control for the duration of Sekhmet's Turn.
    • Sekhmet is much smaller and faster than Eliza. Wavedash go fast!
    • Sekhmet's attacks are all chainable normals. She has no throws!
    • Sekhmet attacks are subject to IPS and all generate the appropriate Drama for a normal attack.
    • Sekhmet has hyper armor, taking all hits with no stun and as 100% recoverable damage.
    • Super meter drains at 1 stock per 240f rate while controlling Sekhmet. Sekhmet attacks generate no additional meter.
    • Sekhmet can be forced by to Eliza when all her meter is gone, Sekhmet gets thrown, or Sekhmet gets hit with an Outtake. She can also return Sekhmet early with Hathor's Return.
    • The Scarlet Ladies taunt gives Sekhmet a 25% life leech property and the ability to perform Lady of Slaughter for the duration of the next Sekhmet's Turn.
    • What happens when Sekhmet takes a burst?
  • Servants?
  • DHC friendly supers?

Ensemble Selection

  • Upper Khat (→↓↘+P): While Startupinv.png anti-air specials typically make a decent Ensemble, Eliza's does not. The disjointed hit box demands careful spacing, it doesn't cause any kind of a knockdown, and every button strength of this move will only give a one hit when used as a custom Ensemble.
  • Sekhmet's Turn (↓↙←+P): Sekhmet's attacks may be Eliza's best overall assists if her team can afford the Tension to use them. Unless Eliza gets stuffed in the 3f of standard Ensemble start up, Sekhmet starting the attack means she is guaranteed to complete it because of her permanent armor. Carpenter's Axe attacks with a High.png that is faster than Dive of Horus. Butcher's Blade has similar advantages over Osiris Spiral as a lockdown Ensemble. Calling a Sekhmet attack as an Ensemble drains meter from Eliza's team a half the usual rate.
  • Dive of Horus (↓↘→+LK): Dropping Horus on the opponent as a custom Ensemble can force the opponent to block High.png and cause a Groundbounce.png on hit, setting up a combo opportunity for the point character. Eliza doesn't take any damage if her servant takes a hit.
  • Weight of Anubis (↓↘→+MK): Using this attack as a custom Ensemble adds Eliza's entrance as additional start up time and gives a visual cue to the opponent. Giving a fair warning makes this otherwise deceptive Throw.png less likely to hit.
  • Throne of Isis (↓↘→+HK): This Default Ensemble Choice has Eliza summon her fireball-like bodyguard before leaving the screen. Not only does it keep Eliza out of the line of fire, the couch negates enemy Proj.png as it charges forward.
  • Osiris Spiral (↓↙←+K): The rapid, close range hits from the Default Ensemble Choice HP version of this move make it useful for trapping an opponent in block stun. This is Eliza's best option for a lockdown Ensemble if she doesn't want to sacrifice meter to use Sekhmet.

Command Name / Quote Properties (glossary)

The clutches of eternity!
Eliza forms wings and grabs at the opponent, slamming them into the ground in a single, damaging hit. No invulnerability! Forced damage scaling 50%? She can't follow it up with anything BUT a Blockbuster Sequel, which will just undo the forced damage scaling anyway...
Qcb.png + P.png + P.png Khepri Sun Uses 3 levels of Dramatic Tension Startupinv.png
Sunrise! High noon! Sunset!
Eliza forms an effigy of the sun, flying straight up, across the top of the screen, and back down to the ground. Button inputs can trigger "early" turns. The many, rapid, low damage hits make the attack a damage efficient ending for a fully scaled combo. Does the last hit cause ground bounce?


Command Name / Quote Properties (glossary)
Mk.png , Lp.png , D.png , Lk.png , Mp.png Scarlet Ladies
Eliza leans forward with Sekhmet standing straight up out of Eliza's back, making for a doubly provocative gesture. Completing the taunt causes Eliza to regain 25% of all damage dealt by Sekhmet for the duration of the next Sekhmet's Turn and will allow standalone Sekhmet to perform Lady of Slaughter. [2]
