Cath'rinne stands fairly tall for a women (5'8") and weighs 165 lbs, with a build of agile muscles. She is a blond women with blue eyes and fairly gorgeous at that, although her looks are partly hidden by dark robes that make her look somewhat more threatening.

Pre-game background

  • She grew up in small fishermen town called Dieppe, near the Arques fortress, in northern Normandie, by the coast. She is of viking descent.
  • Her blatant gift caused troubles for her from a young age, and her parents had troubles dealing with her presence, never really growing accustomed to the gift. She remembers being spanked, scolded, and shouted after for being what she is. She was very happy at being sold to a wandering magi.
  • Her parens was Anastasia ex Bjornaer, from the clan Arelie, who was known for an eagle heartbeast. She was a peacemaker from Crintera, who attempted to dissuade the order from waging war on House Diedne. She stayed out of politics from the moment it became clear the war on the pagan house could not be avoided, and that anyone who was too vocal against the war might get marched or be the target of a wizard's war. Anastasia would be aged 72 at game start.
  • Cath'rinne was gauntleted right arround the time when the Schism war was declared. As such, she stayed secluded in Crintera with much of her House for the past ten years, growing more eager as time past to see the world out there. Her obsession with the warzone and what might be recovered became an obsession that grew through the past few years.
