Personality

Kate is somewhat shy, but extremely friendly and very open if she is asked something as opposed to volunteering information. She always welcomes new friends and is deeply loyal. She is indecisive and frequently anxious. She hates seeing injustice and is capable of great courage when necessary. One of her biggest motivations is to help others, she is quite compassionate. She tries not to show it, but her feelings can be hurt easily. She loves learning and is a hard-worker at everything she puts her mind to.

History:

Kate has one older brother, Cameron, who she is very close to and writes often; he is a Hogwarts graduate and a reporter. Her mother is a muggle archeologist and her father is a member of the Magical Law Enforcement Squad. Her paternal grandparents died shortly before she was born. Her maternal grandparents died when she was a small child, she barely remembers them. She always felt out of place in the muggle world and didn't have many friends before Hogwarts, which is a lot of the reason she became so close to her older brother, he understands her. Some of her fondest memories before Hogwarts are tagging along with her mom at work, exploring archaeological excavation sites in 'kids camps'.
