"The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails."
It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing.
Katherine is generally very blunt when it comes to confrontation. In addition, she is cautious and very wary to trust people, and this makes her appear cold to those not close to her. Katherine likes to joke around, but can be very serious when the time arises. She can be seen as a “motherly” figure. Katherine has a very good ability of reading people’s feelings, and often uses it to either manipulate or help others in situations where it is necessary. Katherine can be apologetic at times, sometimes to the point of being irritating, but can also be overly confident of her beliefs. She embraces the willingness to serve others, enjoys actively caring for others, and prefers to tell the truth.

Aurora Combs was an average woman, an editor and writer for the local newspaper in the city of Glendale. Aurora, however, was also on the search for a new topic for her article, and her boss had told her to go look around and interview people in the outskirt suburban county of Bluffwood. Bluffwood had been experiencing strong winds that were blowing down trees and buildings, and she was sent to ask people what was going on and if they’d seen anything. When she went down to Bluffwood in her small cherry-red Chevy, she found the city abandoned, flattened to the ground. It was as if Bluffwood never existed.As she was walking, she called out, searching for another soul in the lifeless rubble that was the county. A loud voice responded to her, “Ma’am?”

She searched for the source and saw a man: tall, dirty-blonde hair, blue eyes, well built. A short, stubbly beard traced the sides of his jaw, and Aurora couldn’t help but stare as she took him in. Notebook and pen in hand, she stepped closer, “Yes?”

The man said, “Are you alone?”

She ignored his question, and responded, “I’m here from the Glendale City Inquirer. I’m supposed to interview people from Bluffdale. Seeing as you’re the only one here, I suppose I have to interview you.”

The man ignored a majority of her statements, as well. “I think I have information that could be useful for your…interviews.”

“What’s that?” she asked. "I know information about what happened in Bluffdale."

Several months later, Aurora Combs found herself pregnant. Though she had slept with the man, it was only to get more information for the paper. The man seemed to be an endless supply of context about what happened in Bluffdale, and her article was a success thanks to him. But she didn't expect herself to get pregnant.

About a year after Katherine was born, in 1997, the man came back to her, and asked her, "Are you Aurora?" She nodded. "Is that child...mine?" he asked. Aurora nodded again.

"Perhaps there are things we need to discuss," Aurora suggested.

Aurora and the man talked about what had happened, and everything seemed fine. The man was unmarried, and Aurora suggested that they get married so her daughter, Katherine, could have a father figure in her life, too. But, the man refused. He said it wouldn't be right.

Aurora was confused, and asked what that meant. The man said, "I have some...explaining to do."

Then, he explained that Katherine was not a human child, but rather the child of a human and a god. When asked what that meant, the man simply said, "You are the human, and I'm the god. We both caused this child to come into existence as a demigod. She is the daughter of you and I, the daughter of Aurora Combs and of the god Aeolus."

After telling her this information, he said that he had to leave. There was nothing more that he could do. The man stood, a twinkle to his eye and a smile, and left.

Aurora and Katherine never saw him again.

Katherine was born April 13, 1996 in Glendale. The only person present at her birth was her own mother. Her father was kept a secret from her and she never knew him.

Katherine was a nice girl, and did her best academically. Eventually, she began slipping in her grades and started caring less about what she got on test scores and more about seeing the world and feeding her insatiable wanderlust. Her mother got angry at her, but Katherine just said that she wanted to be free to make her own decisions. After this, her mother let her go, and began nicknaming her “Sparrow.” Now, Katherine prefers that name over her given one.

On her fifteenth birthday, Katherine’s mother called her to the dinner table to blow out her candles. She gave Katherine a small box, and inside it was an envelope. In the envelope was a blue-and-white cardstock rectangle, which, upon closer inspection, turned out to be two train tickets. “Why am I getting a train ticket to,” Katherine squinted at the ticket, “Bluffwood? It was obliterated years ago.”

“We need to go there. It’s…your present.”

Katherine left with her mother. She went to Bluffdale, and an angry wind blew dust and rubble around on the flat expanse where Bluffdale used to be. Her mother led her to the middle of the vacant land, and said, "This is where I met your father."

"In the middle of a destroyed county?"

"That's not what's important. The...important thing is that I explain what your father meant for your birth." Aurora paused for a minute, wistfully thinking back. "You...were not born as a full human, Katherine."

"What's that supposed to mean?"

"You're a partial human because of me. But you're also a partial god because of your father."

"Who's my father?"


Katherine’s first encounter of a monster was a hellhound when she was twelve. She had been walking through a park when the creature appeared in the dark, long in the distance. Katherine felt an unsettling feeling rush through her, and she turned to look at it. The dog whipped and looked at her, before starting to give chase. The hellhound chased her, and she grappled for something to do. Something deep within Katherine told her that this wasn't a normal dog.

In the shadows, a figure stood and shoved a longbow and three arrows to Katherine. Katherine was still unfamiliar on how to use the longbow, and struggled to use it, only managing under pure adrenaline. She managed to get two of the arrows into the creature, the third missing and skidding on the ground next to it.

Since then, Katherine does not know who the figure in the shadows was, and has accumulated more arrows for her longbow. She hasn’t run into very many creatures, only the occasional Telekhine. These encounters were hardly threatening to her, due to the training Katherine put herself through to occupy the time that she had now that she didn’t go to school anymore.

Before getting to the camp, she ran into a few Telekhines, one more hellhound, and her most recent one before reaching the camp was a Giant Scorpion. She managed to take these down progressively easier as she got more used to using her longbow, and Katherine found the Scorpion easy to handle because of its vulnerability to arrows and her previous interactions with other creatures.

Katherine got to camp on an accident. She had been wandering through the woods and stumbled into a clearing. Here, she found a huddle of buildings in a variety of designs and shapes, and was approached by a satyress. The satyress told her that she had reached a wrong turn, until the creature touched her. Then, the satyress knew that she was a demigod. Katherine was welcomed into the camp, and spoke to a variety of the people until they concluded what cabin she was to stay in and the different things important to her registration. Katherine was then told to go back to her home and get anything she would need to move permanently into the camp and to say goodbye to her mortal parent. The satyress, named Sage, accompanied her there and back so she would not get lost.

Offensive 1. Children of Aeolus have the ability to create a small tornado, about the size of the user, which can be sent across short distances to knock opponents off their feet or used to send small debris flying at opponents. 2. Children of Aeolus are able to use air itself to slice objects, focusing a current of wind to the point where it takes on a sharp edge, which the caster launches at foes. Although this attack does usually slashing damage, some users are able to focus it into single piercing stab like a bullet.

Defensive 1. Children of Aeolus have the ability to create a dome shaped torrent of wind, roughly two or three times the size of the user, which can be used to block attacks for a very short time. 2, Children of Aeolus have the ability to create powerful gusts of wind, however, the stronger the gust, the more it drains them. The gusts can be used to block incoming attacks.

Passive 1. Children of Aeolus feel stronger when they are touched by strong winds they did not create. 2. Children of Aeolus are innately able to lower air resistance and move faster on the ground, granting them an enhanced level of speed. 3. Children of Aeolus can contain more air in their lungs than the average human, allowing them to survive longer when they cannot gather oxygen.

Supplementary 1. Children of Aeolus have the ability to hover or fly, however, the longer they fly the more it drains them. Due to their rare ability to lower air resistance, users are able to fly faster than anyone else with the ability to fly. 2. Children of Aeolus have the ability to call upon the winds to speed their movements or attacks; conversely this can also be used to slow the movements or attacks of others. 3. Children of Aeolus can use the wind to either surround themselves to block enemies and projectiles or to surround an enemy trapping them within the winds. The longer they maintain the wind, the more it drains. 4. Children of Aeolus can curse an opponent by draining some of the air from an opponent’s lungs and make it somewhat hard for them to breathe for a short time. This leaves them vulnerable to attack or giving the user a chance to flee.
