Eye Color: Pink
First Ability: Necromancy
Second Ability: Telepathy
Third Ability: None

Power Description
Necromancy: Katherine can speak to the souls of the dearly departed. She is also capable of raising the dead, though she has done this only once before and has sworn to never do so again. Telepathy: Kat can hear the thoughts of those in her immediate vicinity (roughly the size of a large dining room), though walls and structures impede her range significantly. She can also project her own thoughts towards another individual, though she can only communicate with one person at a time. Rooms of five or more people (or ghosts) tend to give her headaches, and prolonged exposure or use of her powers results in severe migraines. She tends to only pick up concrete, worded thoughts: not pictographs or feelings or urges.

Personality

Katherine is easily irritated, and tends to be mistrusting of others -- if only because she has a bad habit of detecting their less-than-polite intentions whether or not they are obvious to the layman. She enjoys the company of others, though she herself can seem unapproachable or even unstable -- she is not afraid to speak to the spirits that often congregate near her person, and usually justifies it via the excuse of talking to herself. Her friends readily describe her as a space-case, often with her head stuck in the clouds; she much prefers to talk about high-minded ideals and long-term, big picture goals than she does the minutiae of the day-to-day.

History

Katherine was the bastard daughter of the owner of a traveling carnival (a rare thing in modern times to be sure, but they did still exist). Though her origins were far from opulent, she grew up in an environment full of love and support. To her father, she was an absolute beacon of joy; he spent most of his life savings to send her to college near Cordova, where she ended up opening an occult bookstore in the downtown area. It had always been a dream of hers to offer a refuge for the more peculiar-minded folks of the world -- and in this day and age, such places seemed rarer and rarer still. Katherine has always been a firm believer in the supernatural. Even before her powers manifested at the age of fifteen, when the spirits of the deceased would crop up in the fallow fields where the carnival laid its attractions, she was captivated by stories of magic and wonder. She even tried her hand at performing in her father's road show for a time, serving as a gymnast and a fortune teller during her nights while being home schooled during her days. Though her powers often brought her pain -- both in hearing the often gruesome stories of the damned and, later, in the painful physiological side effects that accompanied developing telepathy in a home that so often filled with people, she believed them to be a gift, and swore one day to share the wonders and mysteries of the metaphysical with any who sought refuge from the mundanities of the 'normal' world.
