Player Name: Ascaloth
Character Name: Katyusha "Kitty Kat" Kalinin
Class: Pegasus Knight
Skill: Nullify (Negates bonuses from effective weapons against the user)
Ever since she was born Kateryna Kalinin to a minor functionary in Tujivaro, little Katyusha had always known she was out of place in the land of the mages. Though she was no less smart than her peers, she was never able to grasp the subtleties of manipulating magical energies for some unknown reason. Crushed under the bullying of scornful children and the disappointment of her parents, what could have been a lively, cheerful child withdrew into herself. Her only friend was a little pegasus foal she had found abandoned in an open field, which she had taken in and christened Maksim.
The turning point came when, having been set upon yet again by a particularly persistant gang of bullies who used their magic to pummel her around, Katyusha in her pain unlocked her latent ability; stretching her hand out, she caught an eldritch blast from one of the bullies in her palm, and squeezing it in her fist, dissipated the magical energies. Before the suddenly fearful eyes of her tormentors, little Katyusha got her hands upon a stick on the ground, and standing up, went after the bullies...
That was years ago, and it was how Kateryna came to the attention of the Tujivaro government, who took her in for her latent ability, with plans in mind for her.
Today, the 15-year-old Kateryna Kalinin serves as a member of the Pegasus Knight Corps of Tujivaro, with the full-grown Maksim as her lifelong companion. More often addressed by the diminutive Katyusha, and nicknamed "Kitty Kat" for her decidedly feline wariness, the young pegasus knight holds a special status even in her position, answering to mysterious superiors as a Special Agent who regularly gets assigned to top-secret missions for the Tujivaro government.
It is one of those missions which has her travelling incognito to Chalym, where news of a ragtag group attempting to escort the legendary Fire Emblem to the Prince of Garganth have reached her superior's ears. Though her orders were that she should assist the group in protecting the Fire Emblem until it reaches its destination by any means necessary, Katyusha was no stranger to having her true objectives concealed from even herself until she was in position. Personally, her educated guess was that her task to escort the Fire Emblem was but a cover, so as to get her as close as possible to the Prince of Garganth, for whatever purpose...
A pretty, petite little blonde-and-blue-eyed girl, Katyusha acts just like she looks, an innocent little damsel who exudes an aura of needing protection from the big, strong men around her. And it has been pretty effective in winning her the affections of many such men, indeed.
Or, at least, that is one of her acts.
On demand, she can be a coquettish little vixen, an alluring forbidden fruit to arouse conflicting emotions in hot-blooded males. Or she could be a damsel in distress, screaming in fear as a misdirection. At still other times, she could be a cold-blooded killer, dispatching her enemies with her trusty spear with nary a glance.
"Kitty Kat" Katyusha is well-trained; few, if any, know who the real her is. Or what her motivations might be. All most people know of Katyusha is what they see of her, and what they see is determined by Katyusha herself.
