Personal Email address: PowerOfQi@aol.com

  • Height: 5ft. 7in.

  • Weight: 124 lbs.

  • Appearance: An attractive blond of average height, Kat lets her hair down to just above her shoulders. Her green eyes are hidden by a pair of dark sunglasses, complemented by a leather jacket, jeans, gloves and vinyl boots, all a dark black. The exception being a low-cut white tee worn under her jacket. Her clothes are drawn tight to reveal as little skin as possible.

    Alternate Appearance: Kat forgoes her usual attire and sunglasses to adopt a less UV-protective loose white Nirvana tee and blue jeans, with sneakers.

  • Fighting Style: Having had no actual training, Kat uses basic punches and kicks, enhanced by vampiric strength.

  • Button Style: King of Fighters

  • Bio: Originally, Kat was an ordinary young woman. At least as normal as one who dates self-styled superhero Jared Stark can be. However, following her boyfriend's devastating raid on a colony of vampires, the head vampire and sole survivor of the colony sought revenge. Intending to hurt the victorious hero in the most psychologically damaging way possible, he attacked Kat while Jared was away and made her one of his kind. Jared and Kat have been searching for a cure and the vampire's head on a pike ever since, neither one particularly minding that both may be one in the same.

  • Intro: Tired of waiting for her introduction into GRIT, Kat has decided to root on her creator in the GMCA in order to alleviate her boredom, and perhaps participate in a few fights to keep herself limber.

  • Theme Songs:

    • Game Theme: Wanted Undead or Alive (Blue Nothing)

    • Home Stage Theme: Living Dead Girl (Rob Zombie)

    • Alternate Theme: Just A Girl (No Doubt)

  • Stage: Metro Cemetery in Manhattan at night, outside the Wylde family crypt.

  • Weapons: Samurai Umbrella: A large, heavy metal umbrella which cannot be closed. Kat rarely uses it to attack, preferring to hold it overhead and use it to block sunlight, so that she can be outside during the day.

  • Special Resources:

    • Not one to let Kat out of his sight again, lest something else happen to her, Jared will most likely take advantage of the current slow pace of GRIT to pop in occasionally and keep tabs on his fiancée.

  • Openings:

    • 1st Round: Kat's umbrella falls heavily to the ground from off the top of the screen, only to be lifted gently as she forms out of the mist. "I suppose this is best...to keep my mind off things."

    • Standard: Kat floats down from the sky, pirouettes in the air, and lands softly on the ground. "Are you my type?"

    • Vs. Self

      Kat#1: An image of the carefree past.

      Kat#2: I fear the future.

    • Vs. Dan

      Kat: Liven things up for me, won't you, sir?

      Dan: You talk like it's my fault. It's just that the time's not right, yet.

    • Vs. Epsilon Normal opening, but with a different quote. "I don't think that blood would taste good cold."

  • Taunts:

    • -start Kat hovers and poses with her umbrella. "Please keep my mind busy. I don't want to do something bad."

    • -d+start Kat plants her umbrella, sits under it and yawns. "It's so tiring to be up during the day."

  • Finishing Poses:

    • Standard:

      • Kat clutches her stomach and floats away from her opponent. "I'm so hungry..."

      • Kat bends over her opponent in concern. "I couldn't have really hurt you, could I?"

      • Kat shows her back to the camera, then smiles over her shoulder. "That felt good."

      • Kat lifts off the ground gently. "I should go." She flies away. "Bye!"

    • Draw: Kat looks surprised. "I wonder...if you're as strong as Jared..."

    • Time Over: Kat smiles at her opponent. "Thank you for playing with me so long."

  • Victory Quotes:

    • "Are we done already? Can't you play some more?"

    • "Thank you for keeping me busy."

    • "I wonder if I would like the taste of blood. But, that's just the sort of thing I shouldn't be thinking about."

    • "I can see that you have a very strong pulse."

  • Character Strategy: Kat lacks special moves and does so-so damage. So, what's her advantage? Maneuverability. Double jumping combined with air dashes make her extremely hard to pin down, and she's quite adept at appearing to jump in, then flitting away at the last second. An adept Kat player should look to use her speed and rapid direction changing ability to confuse the enemy and avoid damage, rushing in and striking when openings present themselves.

  • Attacks:

    • Launcher: df+C "Parasol" 4% Kat jams her umbrella into her opponent's stomach and uses it to thrust them into the air.

    • Command Normals:

      • f+A "Indignity" 2% Kat slaps her opponent in the face. Has less speed and priority that her normal jab, but is easier to combo off of.

      • CD "Body Toss Attack" 4% Kat dashes into her opponent, back first. This move knocks down and can be done in the air.

      • AB or f+AB "Emergency Advance" A sudden forward movement. Kat has partial invulnerability during this move.

      • b+AB "Emergency Escape" Kat hops back quickly. She has partial invulnerability during this move.

      • f,f or b,b Dash forward or backward. Can be done in the air.

      • u (in air) Kat is capable of jumping again while already in the air, and not necessarily in the same direction. She can't double-jump after an aerial dash, however.

    • Throws:

      • f+C "Death Press" 8% Kat grabs her opponent and rams them into the edge of the stage. Always throws forward.

      • f+D "Yank" 6% Kat bends her opponents head back, as if to bite their neck, but thinks better of it and simply tosses them behind her. Always throws backward.

    • Specials:

      • qcf+p "Stiletto" +2% to punches, or 5% if thrown Kat whips a knife into her hand from somewhere up her sleeve, and uses it in her punches until she is hit or throws it. The knife can be thrown by repeating the move command.

      • hcb+p "Vector Drain" 12% Kat lifts her opponent to the top of the screen, then inverts and drives them head-first into the ground. This move can be done in the air.

      • rdp+any "Haze" Kat will disappear into mist, and reform in another location, depending on the button pressed. A is away from the opponent, in front. B is close and in front. C is close and behind. D is away and behind.

    • Supers:

      • qcf,qcf+p "Stiletto Spread" Level 1, 5% per knife Kat summons five knives, then throws them in a fan pattern. More damage close up, but harder to dodge at a distance.

      • qcb,qcb+p "EX Vector Drain" Level 1, 30% Kat performs the normal Vector Drain, but follows it with two additional slams.

      • qcf,qcf+k "Doomsday Device" Level 1, 20% Jared jumps in front of Kat and runs forward a short distance. If he connects with her opponent and isn't blocked, he'll grab them and seat them on his shoulders. Kat will then float up and send them flying with a dashing clothesline.

    • Desperation:

      • qcf,hcb+k "Jealous Boyfriend" 50% Kat will drop to her knees and yell: "Help me, darling!" Jared will then run onscreen from behind her and execute an unblockable tackle if not dodged. If the opponent is caught, Jared will proceed to pound the crap out of them before graduating to a series of throws and slams, and finally tossing them away. Before leaving, he turns to Kat and asks: "Are you okay, baby?" "Fine, thanks to you, honey," she replies while hugging his back.

    • Ultimate Attack/Summon:

      • A,A,f,B,C "Acupuncture/Acupressure" Level 3, 50% Kat moves forward a short ways and grabs her opponent. She then takes about twenty knives and jams them into various vital points of the opponent's body. Lifting them by the hair or scalp (whichever is available), she hauls them into the air then thrusts downward, pressing their knife ridden body into the ground for several seconds and driving the knives deeper. When finished, she stands her opponent up and rips the knives back out of the violently. They tend to fall down at this point.

    • Flash Finisher:

      • qcb,qcf+p "Temptation" Losing control of her hunger, Kat grabs her opponent by the throat and lifts slowly into the sky. Just barely reigning in the urge to feed, she simply chokes them until they stop struggling, and drops them to the ground when she's done. This move is unblockable.

    • Team Helper:

      • Vector Drain

    • Team Supers:

      • Team Edit: Stiletto Spread

  • Glitches:

    • None yet.

  • Motivations: Kat is bored, plain and simple. She enjoys watching fights and occasionally taking part in them, but has no intention of making a career out of it. Therefore, while she may participate in the occasional exhibition, she isn't interested in being more than a spectator for the main tournament.

  • How Kat talks:

    Kat has a fairly average accent and speech pattern from a fairly average upbringing in New England, and tends to speak simply without pretense or attempts at sounding more intelligent than she is. She also has an unnerving habit of giggling disturbingly.

  • How Kat acts:

    Originally an outgoing, friendly girl, the vampire taint has made Kat a bit creepier and more introverted. It's the influence of this darker nature that's led her to adopt a "sexy" look over her former more comfortable attire and sometimes causes her to hang over people in a discomforting way. However, the good girl she was prior to her transformation fights desperately to contain these urges, leaving Kat sometimes nervous around people which creates difficulty in relating well with others.
