Her parents met when the mortal Timothy Riverstone, a paranormal explorer, was lost in the woods, unable to find his way out. He had left on an adventure to see if he could kind any ghosts in the woods, but instead got lost for days. At night, he fell upon a road leading in four different directions. he knew he had walked far, and didn't know how far each road was until the next town. Afraid and hungry, he couldn't choose which path to take. Aphrodite , deciding to help this reckless mortal, appeared at the road, offering him assistance on his way home. After bringing him home, Tim found she was real proof of what he had been studying. Aphrodite found his love for ghosts adorable. This seems unlikely, due to her adoration for happy things, but she found his love for the unknown beautiful.. She came back the next night to see him and listen to his observations of the ghost world. And then the night after, and after that, and the id after that... Soon enough Kata Riverstone was born on September 18th. Aphrodite insisted he leave the paranormal business for his own safety. She told him of camp half blood, and to bring her there when monsters began to attack. Afraid, she left him. Tim married his childhood friend and ex girlfriend two years later, having children a year after.
Kata was born and raised in a suburb in northern new york. Kata, growing up with her parents, younger twin half-brothers Peter and Murray (by three years) , her grandmother and not to mention the many domestic animals, Kata was raised in a very busy home. Dedicated to her studies, she balances friends, family, school, extra curricular activities, and sports with stress, so her busy home takes a toll on her mood when all she wants is time alone. Nonetheless, she manages.
Kata was raised in a very kind, loving family, one that always taught her to be herself and accept others, which had a major impact on her personality, causing her to always do so and to never attempt or think otherwise. Her entire elementary school life , she didn’t have many friends do to her introverted ways and originality. She never was part of any social group, and because of so, never hung out with one. Kata was, and still is, a wallflower, watching and observing everybody else but refusing to join them because she simply doesn’t want to be another blur in the crowd. During her life in middle school +, she made friends with a couple of other kids in her grade. Although still not popular, she knows her 5 friends and very loyal and friendly.
Kata began showing signs of being a daughter of Aphrodite towards the age of 11. When she got extremely angry, she always seemed to make the other person feel worthless without even saying anything. She could always persuade people into doing what she wanted with little effort, and she always seemed to have doves following her. When she was 13, a new boy joined Kata's ballet class. He was very awkward and couldn't walk very well, so Kata had no idea why he had even bothered to show up in the first place, considering he never participated. The two formed a quick bond. While hanging out after school, a hellhound attacked them. Jonathan (who revealed he was a satyr) distracted the beast and instructed Kata to go hide and call her dad, and to request to go to 'the special camp'. When he did arrive, Tim brought a sword Aphrodite had given him as protection, but inexperienced, he dropped in soon into the fight. Kata's instincts kicked in and she managed to kill the hellhound with Jonathan's help. She took the fallen blade and managed to hurt the hellhound, with Jonathan's help confusing it, and ran up to the top building, where she tricked it into falling off the roof to its death. Timothy decided it was for Kata's best to send her to camp, but she refused, not wanting to leave her family. After a month (which went over her birthday), Jonathan talked to her and beged it was for her best. Angry that Jonathan didn’t believe Timothy could protect Kata, he switched her into a different school, and transferred her out of that particular ballet program. After little under a year, Jonathan managed to swap into her new school, and have a serious discussion with her dad. He realized he was being selfish, and let her go to camp. Before heading to her cabin, she chose her weapon; two daggers (one for each hand) that would together transform into a necklace of a sword at her will.
