Biography[edit | edit source]

Born to pioneer parents who died saving her from the destruction of their frontier island home - a dark, driving memory she shares with only a few close friends - Kat was forced to raise herself. The hardships of her vagabond childhood forced Kat to prove her worth amid the toughs and beggars of the Ramsgate streets, and she soon learned that she was a natural fighter - but hunting behemoths was her calling. Before the injuries that force her into retirement, Kat lives to destroy behemoths like those that killed her family in hope no other family has to go through the same experience. Kat is well-known not just as a slayer, but a trainer of slayers whose students often go on to be among the greatest to follow the path. She trains a single apprentice at a time, taking the time to imbue each with all her years of experience and skill.

Outwardly gruff and no-nonsense, but lets her guard down to reveal a droll sense of gallows humor with those she trusts. She has little patience for time-wasters and takes training apprentice slayers very seriously, having seen too many cocky, half-trained monster hunters killed by behemoths. She can seem contemptuous of the soft, easy-living people who live in the towns and cities, but she secretly envies them - at least until her retirement later in the story, when she will immediately begin to crave a return to the skies. Her early life taught her the value of standing up for those who can’t fight for themselves, but her hatred of behemoths is her ultimate driving force. Only her injuries will keep her grounded, to her frustration, but eventually she will rejoin the sky ship as a crew member.

Initially Kat is a source of inspiration and knowledge for the player - a trusted mentor more than a parental substitute who can crack wise with trusted subordinates, but also command immediate attention and snap into a serious, professional demeanor in an instant. After she retires, these qualities will be tempered a bit by drink and frustration at being grounded, but they’re still the core of who Kat is.
