Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
For years, the gods and goddesses have watched on while the humans developed through the years, as they advanced both personally and technologically. Lately one thing has become quite clear to them; humans have a habit of being very irresponsible when it comes to their environment and the animals that reside within that environment. They came to a decision, fearing for the safety and longevity of their sacred animals, they have decided to create a special group of nymphs to help protect their sacred animals.
Spring 2012, Mace was created by her patron Hecate. Cats have been deeply in danger especially in most part of Asia as some of them are being smuggled to restaurants that serves feline meat. Hecate sent Mace firstly to China where there are most cases of smuggling felines.
Mace had been roaming the Asia, particularly China, Vietnam and Philippines until in January 2015. She had been informed of smuggling of cats from China to Vietnam, a cargo containing atleast 3 tons of cats for a restaurant that uses cats meat for their cuisine. Being in Vietnam that time made it easier for her but dealing with it was more difficult than she could've thought. Before she can even rescue the cats, Vietnam Authorities had already taken care of the cats but to her dismay the Vietnamese decided to bury the cats, even those who were alive. Even though Mace had pulled every strings she have she only had recued few of the living cats and kittens though it's only like a bite of the 3 tons of the smuggled cats.
Mace brought the cats to the nearest farm she could stay for. An old woman who owns the farm allowed Mace to stay with her cats and she even provided milk for the kittens.
The burying of the felines caused Mace to fall into depression but quickly recovered from it because of the cats she'd rescued. Although they were only few, seeing them recover from the event of the smuggling cause Mace to also recover on her own. Hecate, watching her sacred animal from above, appeared in Mace's dream and ordered for her to take further rest at Camp Half-blood and telling her to take her time on the Camp before accepting another assignment from her.
Going to camp at 2016 near christmas, Mace was only able to take one cat with her since the Old woman who had helped her needed the cats to lessen the rats from pestering the old woman's crops. Although she felt very lonely at spending christmas with only one cat, she thought of herself and her health first, vowing that next time she'll do her best to avoid failure.
Mace is more of like an affectionate cat. The way she moves is with grace and elegance. Like a feline, The animal nymph is always alert and curious on her surroundings. Mace has a gentle disposition which allows her to interact well with other animals and she deeply loves her people but has a tendency to become dominant at times.
The guardian of Cats tend to purr alot whenever she's with the person she likes/loves.

All Animal Nymphs
They have a telepathic/empathetic connection with nature and other nymphs. They also have a special, stronger connection with other animal nymphs.
As they are nymphs they do not age, remaining eternally young.
Their senses of smell, sight and hearing are enhanced, enabling them to sniff out monsters, track down demigods, etc.
They are able to summon animals to aid them; they have the best control over their own animal type.
Specific to each Animal Type
Each type of animal nymph has its life force attached to that species, so if a species were to go extinct the nymphs would die.
Each nymph is able to change into the type of animal he/she is, and only that type. So the bear nymph could not turn into a mouse, but he/she could turn into a grizzly bear, black bear, polar bear, etc.
While in animal form they have all the normal abilities of their animals. So if the nymph is a hawk nymph he/she can fly.
While in regular nymph/person form, they only retain passive characteristics/traits from their animals. So if the nymph is a hawk nymph, perhaps he/she remains claustrophobic in enclosed spaces but cannot fly.
Vary between species.
