Because you're the author you can of course circumvent this by manipulating the story to suit your needs, but it's usually best to start with a triad of three main traits that you can build upon and diversify from there. People change, and so can characters.
This story left us wondering if it was the scissors who drove the action or their mistress. Wonderfully characterised, the scissors were brought to life in a luxurious flurry of comedic sexualisation and bloodlust.
The fact that scissors, in a seamstress' hands, are a tool of creation, made them automatically partakers in the creative process. Furthermore, the fact that they cut and could be used to hurt made it logical for the next stage to destroy with the same blades that would otherwise make beauty.
