(full name: Katelyn Joan Olsen)
Real character sheet moved to here
, though I'm going to leave this around for reference of what she was
Tall and lanky, with a build that tends to get compared to a horse. Dusky mulatto skin, black hair, red eyes, and honest-to-goodness fangs. Nobody is quite sure where she got the money for custom colored contacts or artistic dentistry; if asked, she just claims that she lost a bet and refuses to elaborate.
Yearbook Entry: Voted most likely to beat up the yearbook organizers if they don't put something flattering here. Err, we mean a beautiful and charming young lady.
high concept: the kelpie's daughter
trouble: unbridled nature
other aspects: smarter than she looks, you and what army?, power is beauty*
apex skill: athletics
Kate grew up with her mother (the only one of the three with a known mortal parent) in east palo alto; while she's had occasional issues with the gangs there, most of them realized early on that harassing her was more dangerous than it was worth, and her exposure was further limited by her mother sending her to a school in a different city. Still, she was notorious for getting into fights, and would probably have been expelled if Tim hadn't been able to convince the authorities that she'd only been defending herself. Kate has been involved in a number of sports, most notably track, swimming, and hockey. She's given up on competition swimming after a very public "rescue" when she forgot that she was supposed to need to breathe air, but is still quite active in the other two - to the point that she's currently attending HMTI on an athletic scholarship that pays for at least most of her expenses.
She's currently attempting to major in mechanical engineering, having apparently been quite impressed by Ryan's exoskeleton.
Of the three, Kate has the least power manifested so far; she's stronger than she ought to be, and can breathe underwater, and that's about it.
* This aspect probably deserves a bit of explanation. It's referring explicitly to physical power, and is also explicitly not might makes right. Invokes include looking good in any situation where physical power is in play (such as sports), picking out a winning race horse on appearance alone, or sweet-talking an ugly-as-sin minotaur with sincere flattery. Compels include failing at social conflicts that depend on traditional definitions of beauty, stopping to compliment the hulking monster that she should really have done her best to not attract attention from in the first place (or assuming that the monster is the good guy until proven otherwise), or falling for the guy who just beat a troll in a fistfight.
