Varla has bra strap or mid-back length violet hair with dark red sunglasses resting on her head. She has a butterfly tattoo on her right arm along with roses designs, another tattoo around her belly button is two revolvers, her last tattoo is on her left breast with a kiss design embedded. She has a gun holster on her right thigh with a brown strap wrapped around her legs.
She wears a mini vest revealing ample cleavage and midriff with a high cut red skirt revealing her hips as well. She wears purple light brown boots with purple star designs on them.
Varla accompanies G and Isaac Washington with the intention of avenging Jasper Guns (Varla's brother), whom Papa Caesar used. By the end of the fifth chapter, she is kidnapped by Caesar and taken to the police compound. At the end of the sixth chapter she's shown tied up in an electric chair and then taken down an elevator by a true mastermind person named Clement Darling. Later on, it's revealed that her still-living brain had been taken out of her body and placed in a jar by Clement as he had replaced it with his elderly mother's brain. From this moment on, Varla remains silent as she is unable to do anything, though Clement claims that she's still alive. In the end, she's taken to an escape helicopter by G, who tells her that if she can hear him that she's the most beautiful woman in the world (a saying that Isaac finds wrong).
Her fate afterward is unknown. She may have lived out the rest of the series in the jar she was put in or maybe (though not likely) was killed by someone like G in a mercy killing. Another possibility is that she will return either still a brain in a jar or in a new body.
- According to the article titled "The Making of... The House of the Dead: Overkill" by British Gaming UK back in February of 2009, Varla is modeled after a glamour model named Vikki Blows.
- Many of Varla Guns' quotes in Extended Cut throwback to the character Varla in Russ Meyer's 1965 exploitation film Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Archived from the original on March 22, 2020. “...Washington is cosmetically based on Common”, an American rapper and actor, known for over-the-top action flicks such as Wanted and Smoking Aces, while G is a mish-mash of straight up, enigmatic and professional agents; “Keanu Reaves from Point Break” is one of his influences. Varla Guns is based on Parisian model Vikki Blows and “Papa Caesar is Burt Reynolds.”
