Dove Cameron Hired to Play Ruby:

What character will Dove Cameron play on Agents of SHIELD?

Agents of SHIELD has confirmed that actress Dove Cameron will be playing a role in the show in Season 5.  Dove Cameron is an up and coming actress known for her role on Descendants and she also lends her voice to Spider-Gwen in the cartoon Ultimate Spider-Man.  In the announcement Dove shows her excitement and is about to reveal more when she is cut off by a familiar face.

Who will Dove play?

My guess is that she could play a significant character but that is pretty hard to say.  If SWORD is involved in this season its possible she could be Abigail Brand.  She also could be any number of female aliens, or agents.  I don't have any hard theories now but will follow the show closely and look for more clues.

Update:  Dove will be playing a character called Ruby who is the daughter of General Hale and has a mysterious obsession with Quake.  General Hale is a villain who appeared in the episode where Fitz was trying to get into the future with his team.  Hale was running the operation that imprisoned him and also to retrieve him after he escaped.  The base where Hale was located was revealed to have a warehouse containing both SHIELD and alien artifacts.  When Hale's two agents Evans and Lucas failed to reacquire Fitz she executed both by shooting them in the head.   She then called for a clean up crew.  Hale seems ruthlessness and position in charge of an important facility point to her being part of something larger than a typical military operation.  It is even possible that she herself is an Inhuman, Alien, etc.    Ruby is going to be this character's daughter and that opens up a lot possibilities.

Ruby as described by showrunners on EW:

Ruby, a young woman of cunning intelligence who has a mysterious obsession with Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) — oh, and she’s the daughter of General Hale (Catherine Dent).

There is in fact a Ruby in the comics.   Ruby is a character called Ruby Summers who is the daughter of Cyclops / Scott Summers and Emma Frost.  She is an extremely powerful mutant with powers that are a variation on those of her parents:  She fires black optic blasts from her eyes similar to her father.  She turn her body into ruby and be nearly invulnerable like her mother.  Ruby generally remains in her ruby form and come around fine in that form.  The Ruby form prevents her from aging and when depicted in the comics she is actually in her 80s.  She confesses that she does not know if leaving her Ruby form will lead her to automatically age.

Could Dove be playing Ruby Summers?  I would say this is unlikely as Marvel just acquired Fox who held the mutant licenses.  Also Ruby Summers would be a difficult character to integrate with her ties to both Cyclops and Emma Frost without either of those characters being introduced as yet into the MCU.
