Her father, Chris, met Apate at a spring festival she tricked him and threw a water balloon at him. He laughed and ran after her and threw a water balloon at her. They became good friends playing around together, that friendship became more. Apate left Chris after a few weeks and 3 months later Chris heard a knock at the door and a baby girl, Cat, was left at his door along with the present for her 11th birthday and a note. (She was left there by a nymph commanded by Apate)
Cat was born and raised in a small town and her dad worked as a primary school teacher. She doesn’t remember her mother but her father told her that she left her a gift for her 11th birthday. She grew up with her father and their dog, a springer spaniel named Lisa, in a small house. Her dad taught her how to draw and play the guitar when she was young and she developed a creative streak. She loved her school as her dad taught her there and she made friends with a girl called Jessica Roth they were partnered together in music and were both incredibly talented.
Cat got in trouble several times for back talking and breaking the rules by climbing trees and fences. But she was never disciplined much only a few detentions and warnings. Cat favourite pastime was playing truth or dare with her friends and playing pranks on kids at school, they would always forgive her though she would just smile sweetly. Once Cat and her friends went to and abandoned, haunted house. Cat climbed on the roof and stayed there till it got dark. Her dad always let her play out since she got back from school to the time it got dark. She was given a cell phone when she was young and her dad trusted her to go around town with her friends as long as she had her phone. She won several awards for her music; she wasn’t the most academic student but she got through with average levels, art and music were the only places she excelled at. This was a trait she shared with her best friend Jess they often spent their lunchtimes singing and playing the guitar. Her dad brought her a guitar for her 8th birthday. On the last day of primary school Cat played a prank on the music teacher she filled his car with newspapers then wrapped it up in wrapping paper, the kids had spent months planning the prank. The teacher, Mr Jefferies laughed and got the students to help him clean it up then they used the paper as snowballs as such and had a paper ball fight. Cat’s team won.
When Cat moved to her high school she was bullied because she did'nt understand the english work she felt alone even Jessica could'nt comfort her. Music was the only thing that calmed her down. Eventually after weeks of bulling she went to the teacher after the lesson and told her about what happened. The school punished the boys and Cat avoided them as much as she could. Her music teacher entered her into a music competion which she won and was in the local newspaper she still has the trophy to this day.
When she turned 11 she got home and Jessica brought her an I-pod after her party her dad came into her room and gave her the present. Without a word he left the room and gave Cat a sad smile. She opened the present her mother had left for her. It was a necklace with a masquerade mask pendant and a note.
The note read:
To my dear daughter Catherine, one day you will need this when the time comes trust in it and it will save you. You are my daughter and because of this you are special be careful there are things out there that want to hurt you because of what you are. This will protect you wear it always. There is somewhere safe for you and you will find it…
Your Loving Mother/Father Apate/Apollo/Hermes
Confused at what her mother ment she asked her dad and he said he did'nt know anymore about it. She spent hours staring at the necklace trying to figure it out but she found nothing. Cat eventually gave up but sometimes late at night it still annoyed her and she would stare at it. That day Cat wore that necklace every day just in case, she didn’t understand any of it but she trusted her mother. She wore it under her top to school so the teachers would'nt tell her off. After a while Cat was diagnosed with dyslexia which is why she found it so hard in english, she then got work more suited to her so she worked better. School was normal, Music was her highlight of the week and she was in chore with Jessica. More kids started to accept her and she was never bullied anymore. On her 13th birthday Cat and Jess went to a tattoo parlour luckily for them if they put on the right makeup they easily looked older so they got tattoos. Cat and Jess got matching tatoo's on their backs, a quote: ‘All I can do is be myself, whoever that is’. When she got home her dad said it looked lovely and just made sure that she had paid for it with her own money.
First Monster Attack: They were 13. Cat and Jessica were playing out in the woods near Jessica’s house; Jessica lived with her mother, when a large dog-like creature attacked them. Cat grabbed the necklace and it turned into a sword surprised Cat looked down at them, then at the thing that was heading straight for Jessica.
Jessica pushed out in desperation and a gust of wind blew the dog away. A boy (saytr) appeared from behind a tree and leapt at the hound swiping at it with a sword, Cat gripped her necklace which turned into a sword and Cat jumped at the beast from behind stabbing it in the neck. The creature whimpered, convulsed then died. “Jessica are you ok?” Cat asked. “Yo-our not afraid of me” Jess asked. Cat grinned “No you’re like me”. The girls grinned. Jessica was a daughter of Aeolus. The boy looked at them a said “Follow me, I know somehwere safe for you. He kicked off his shoes and they saw he had hooves; A satyr. “You are half-bloods this world is not safe for you follow me there is a camp which is safe.” He put his shoes back on to hide his hooves.
The saytr took them to their homes and told their parents about camp and the gods and everything. Luckily their parents let them go. They then followed him and he took them to the edge of town it was late so no one was around. The satyr summoned a taxi but not just any taxi, the taxi drivers weren’t exactly human….. (Sorry I forgot the name of the taxi, the grey sisters something like that) The taxi led them to a place neither of the girls had seen before. As the satyr led them through the archway they gasped and grinned…. They were home.
A sword which turns into a necklace with a pendant of a masquerade mask.
