Full name: Katharina Elisa Meyer

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Titles: Miss

Meaning of Name:
Katharina - German form of the name Catherine; "Pure"
Elisa - Shortened version of Elizabeth; "My God is a Vow"

Nickname(s): To those in her native city, she is known as the latter half of her name: "Rina" [Ree-Nuh]. Those she calls her close friends and family typically call her by this name, which can sometimes confuse those who know her by her preferred nickname of "Kat". Most people around Paris know her by this name, which she finds to be more grown-up and less cute-sy.

Sex: Female

Age & Date of Birth: 24 years of age; Born on the afternoon of November 18, 1898

Birthplace: Boston, Massachusetts, The United States

Current Residence: An apartment. Kat currently lives in a moderately sized apartment in a quieter section of Paris. It's considered a very nice area to live, as it's only a five minute walk away from where most of the city's action is and, on the 6th floor where her particular space is, offers a very nice view. The area is currently becoming more popular with the rich, but not extraordinarily so.

Lives With: Her dog; A long-haired dauschund named Caesar.

Occupation: Free-Lance Journalist and Writer
Kat is very passionate about journalism, however, she isn't taken entirely seriously in the matter due to the fact that she is a woman. She often finds herself struggling to find newspapers and magazines that will publish her work, no matter how good it really is. Through all the rejection she's faced, she feels ready to find a more serious place in the world of writers and is currently trying to find a newspaper that will hire her full-time.

Past Occupations: A published writer for several different newspapers, journals, and magazines through both Paris and back home in Boston.

Physical Appearance

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

General Description/Facial Features: Plain Jane by day, but drop dead gorgeous at night can best describe Kat's appearance. Contrary to having grown up with a mother who was all about aesthetic beauty, she does not think very much of the way she looks. When working or in a situation where she does not have to impress anyone, Kat can easily blend into the crowd and be entirely washed out. However, with the right amount of makeup and colors that suit her, she is quite a stunning young woman who has known to catch the eyes of many. The contrast between her "day and night" looks is so startling that many people often mistake her for another person all together. Her overall appearance is that of a heart-shaped face with a small, pink mouth and a curiously analytic gaze. She is a strikingly classic beauty, over-all, but rarely lets people see that from her.

Height & Body Type: 5' 6'', a little taller than average height. Kat is a very good representation of the long, slender body-type that the 20's are known for. While she does have some curves to her, she normally does not play up on them and prefers the more modern look of sleekness.

Eyes: Blue-gray, very light. What shade they are depends on the lighting and if she is wearing makeup or not. They can be very stand-out when she is made up in darker hues of eye shadow.

Skin Tone: Fair.

Scars: Only one on her leg from falling off her bicycle when she was nine.

Type of Dresser: A secret shame of Kat's is her adoration for clothing and new styles being put out. While she vowed to never dedicate her entire life's earnings to new, shiny things, she will occasionally splurge on something she thinks would suit her. During the day, when she's working, she tends to wear more plain, simple things as she feels anything flashy is a distraction and takes her focus away from her writing. This is when she tends to look the most plain, when she wears her dull navy blues, grays, and whites. She'll keep her hair pinned up with a ribbon, headscarf, or hat, but will let it down to its natural length when she's getting dressed up. When going out, she likes to wear colorful items that play up her appearance and enjoys spending time getting dolled up before an evening at the dance club.

Hair Color & Style: Chocolate brown with a few caramel highlights to it. She wears her hair short, but not as short as most; it falls in curls to her shoulders, giving her enough hair so that it can be pinned up and styled as she wishes.

Tattoos/Piercings: No tattoos, but she does have her ears pierced.

Personality & Such

Disabilities: Kat has a slight vision problem when reading and so usually keeps a pair of glasses on her for when she needs them.

Mental State: Sane.

Talents & Skills: Ever since she was very little, Kat has had a knack for story telling. This has carried over into her writing. Even in her most technical pieces, there is something very charming about her writing that has been known to hook her readers and keep them wanting more from her. While she tends to write more journalistic, non-fiction pieces, she will come up with the occasional short-story or idea for a novel. Most of these projects remain unfinished in notebooks that she keeps in boxes under her bed to return to when she so desires. She very rarely enjoys writing for herself and always aspires to show the world what she's created on the page.

If one can count it as a talent, Kat also has an impeccable memory. There isn't much about her past that can slip out of her mind, and very rarely forgets things.

When it's required of her, which is usually never, Kat's a pretty agile girl who is especially fast. Most people never get to see her run though, because, as previously stated, she never really needs to do so.

Activities/Hobbies/Pastimes: Writing, Socializing, Studying Current Events

Self-Image: Kat is confident in herself in a way unlike most women. Never having been one to take her appearance into consideration, she is more confident in her brains than her beauty. She's very sure of what she knows and when she doesn't know something, she has no problem going out to seek whatever it is.

Weakness: Her attraction to the out of the ordinary. Sometimes she winds up in situations she is so unfamiliar with that she ends up in trouble.

Overall Personality: Katharina is a woman of deviance -- She refuses to settle for what is expected of her, which is the reason why she's come to Paris in the first place. She is also a woman of great logic and, through her charming smile and seemingly girlish personality, knows a surprising amount about the world around her. She isn't afraid to show off this side of her and can sometimes be seen as a bit of a know-it-all. Nosiness is something else she is often accused of by those who haven't quite adjusted to her nature of always wanting to understand why and how things work the way they do. While she may seem rebellious and out of the ordinary in some areas, she is still a little old fashioned in others: She isn't quite used to the new ideas of casual sexuality, and sometimes finds herself critical of those women who take these new "norms" to the extreme and regards them as "loose". To those women who are especially old fashioned, Kat finds herself impatient with them as most find her chosen profession quite silly. There have been more than one occasions when she's been told to stop reporting on current happenings and write up a quaint little love story instead, but anyone who knows her well enough can supply that Kat is not the kind of girl interested in frills and the classic romance, and would rather take on an adventure instead.

She's slightly secretive when it comes to some parts of her life.

Best Personality Trait: Her "try everything once" attitude and brains

Worst Personality Trait: She can sometimes come off as a bit of a smart-ass and seem TOO sarcastic.

Fears: Not a germaphobe, per-say, but Kat has an issue with being around the sick. The thought of someone decaying into a state of completely loss of consciousness and ability does a little more than freak her out.

Sexuality: Heterosexual

Thoughts on Love & Relationships: Never one for the classic love story, Kat isn't going to settle for just any guy. She has sworn to herself that whoever she eventually settles down with will be someone out of the ordinary. She's slightly guarded as to who she lets herself open up to romantically due to what happened with her boyfriend, but isn't necessarily cold about it. Open to the idea of being in a relationship once again and hopping to eventually settle down, but Kat isn't in any rush to do so. She'll often say that, "Good things taken time."

Relationship History: Kat was "going around" with a boy named James for two years. They'd been close childhood friends and grew up together and decided that pursuing a relationship was the next step. They were a very affectionate pair, but that came to an end when James left Boston for England to study there, which resulted in him joining in the fight for World War I. James was killed in action, which left Kat particularly devastated. James' death is another reason why Kat is in Paris -- to seek closure and to move on.

General Likes: Jazz music ; Evenings in Paris ; Boston Commons [She misses the city very much] ; Her Dog, Caesar ; Fall Season ; Fashion ; Black Coffee ; Writing ; New "Modernist" Literature ; Her Car ; Drinking ; The Seaside ; The smell of old books ; Eccentricities in People ; Music in General ; Socializing

General Dislikes: People Who Are So Moral-less They Are "Out of Control" ; Conservatism ; Tea ; Seafood ; The Catholic Church ; Extremely Loud Noises ; Those Who Find Her Profession A "Waste of Talent" ; Smoking [Though she is a social smoker, she doesn't very much enjoy it]

Usually Equipped With: A shoulder bag that contains a tube of red lipstick, a few hairpins, a notebook, a few pencils, and a compact mirror.

Background

Mother: Franziska "Fran" Sigrid Meyer

Mother's role in upbringing: Kat and her mother were very opposite in their personalities. The family, being very strictly religious, always pushed very high morals on Kay and her sister, which Fran only helped to encourage. Kat never liked her mother's idea of a happy life being one that served a husband and nothing more -- Yet another reason she left Boston, Kat's mother expected that her daughter would hurry to find a suitable husband just a short few months after the death of James.

Father: Heinrich "Henri" Armin Meyer

Father's role in upbringing: A rather distant relationship, Henri was too busy with his work as a professor at Harvard to spend much time with his three children. He spent what free time he did have drinking and wandering around the city with his friends.

Family Finances: Slightly wealthy -- More than enough to by. Rare for an immigrant, Heinrich came from a very wealthy family and was allowed to take his chunk of inheritance with him when he came to America and earns a fair amount of money from his job.

Birth Order & Sibling Relationships: Middle child.
Older Sister - Sabine Marie - 28 - Closer to Kat when they were younger. Now that she's married with a child on the way, the two have grown rather distant.

Younger Brother - Armin Reiner - 20 - Very close. They often write to each other. Armin shares Kat's love of writing, so the two get along very well.

Education: Obtained a degree in English at Simmons College in Boston.

Ethnic Heritage: First Generation, American born Austro-Hungarian

Accent: Slight Boston Accent; It's fading away them ore she's in Paris and can only really be heard when she's yelling, angry, or talking fast -- Something that is very known about the accent in general.

Languages Spoken: German, English. Currently learning French -- It's not going so well.

Religion: Non-Practicing Christian

History:

Moila.
WILL YOU PLEASE DO MY HISTORY FOR ME, BIO QUEEN?!

Jake Im sorry but your characters never end up single.
You're going to wind up with Kat. Dont even try and resist it. You guys do love-interest storylines quite well though.
YOUR LAST CHARACTERS WERE COUSINS AND THAT DIDN'T EVEN STOP THEM

Btw Wyatt looks like a saucy person.
