KATHRYN IRENE MANCHESTER,
debuting as Miss Kitty Mouse.Boys, what you're hopin' for will come true; let me be good to you.
FULL NAME: Kathryn Irene Manchest
NICKNAME(S): Kitty. Don't bother with Katie or Kathy or KitKat or whatever, she won't listen. In fact, she probably won't even listen to Kathryn anymore.
AGE/DOB: Seventeen years young, born June 1st.
GENDER AND SEXUALITY: Most definitely female and generally eyes the gentlemen.
FAIRYTALE CHARACTER: Miss Kitty Mouse
FACE CLAIM: Amber Heard
POWERS: One could say the ability to calm a bar of rowdy sailors is a power in itself. Her singing voice is rather seductive, like a siren's song.
ANY DISTINGUISHING FEATURES:Kathryn stands a little on the taller side for a female at five feet seven inches. Ordinarily, she looks a bit taller than that with the assistance of high heels. It is extremely seldom that you'll see Kitty without at least a pair of pumps, though stillettos that make her already leggy figure look all the long tend to be her favourite. It is just as unlikely to ever find the girl in a pair of proper pants. She doesn't seem them flattering and will almost always opt for a dress or skirt instead. Her flashy and generally provocative manner of dress generally gains quite a deal of attention.

GOALS: One word: Fame. Plain and simple, this girl wants to be on top of the charts and in every major motion film.
FEARS: She's a little afraid of ending up tied down, but that's what happens after a string of bad relationships. However, she is all the more afraid of seriously getting hurt to mar her appearance.
ANY HABITS OR QUIRKS: Kitty has a rather cute little habit of what she likes to call 'nesting'. This is where she'll gather up piles of blankets and make herself a nice little nest to sleep in like a mouse rather than a young lady.
She also only ever writes in pencil or erasable ink pens. The ability to change when necessary is vital to her.
SECRETS: Kitty is what you might call a 'closet nerd'. Once you get past her sequins costumes and mysteriously dark lashes, she is the prime example of what you would call a 'dork'. She enjoys reading old detective literature, watching science fiction shows, wears a pair of rather thick rimmed glasses and is actually rather intelligent when you get to talk to her. Unfortunately, most people do not see this side because they're too distracted by her bright blonde hair or skimpy clothes.
OVERALL: First and foremost, Kitty is a social butterfly. She loves to talk and talk and talk and talk. In fact, if you find the girl keeping quiet, she is probably up to something. She is one of those types that has a tendency to ramble just to hear the sound of her own voice. Subjects and topics don't really matter when it comes to the young woman either. She is a bit of a social chameleon and with her psychology buff attitude, she can rather quickly determine peoples' reactions and adjusts to suit peoples likes and hobbies. Kitty's attitude can change at the drop of her hat and with the kind of elegance that would shock. This way, she can continue to think of life as one big show and her just a very diverse actor in it. Her knack for sometimes useless knowledge and facts makes it easy for her to pretend she knows what she's talking about when it comes to subjects actually foreign to her. The downside to this constant flipping around is that it's a bit difficult for Kitty to express how she actually feels or thinks when the time comes. To often, she end up saying things just to keep others happy rather than tell how she truly feels on the subject.
However, change has always been important in the life of Kathryn Manchester. To the point where she refuses to write with anything but pencils or erasable ink. The thought of not being able to change consistently makes her extremely antsy.
Kathryn is essentially one giant personality. While her appearance can be said to look sweet and mousey, there is absolutely no way you could describe Kathryn as such. She has a rather big and bold sort of personality, almost teetering on the edge of being downright boisterous. It can often be a bit too much for people to handle, the constant need for somebody's attention. All eyes should best be focused on her, or else she'll just get bigger and more risque. Her attention-loving antics often bring her to talk openly or even engage in sexual sort of things. If it brings attention to her, she really doesn't mind if it takes a little skin to do it. Any press is good press.
Kathryn has always been one for doing things for herself. Independence is key for her. While falling in love may be possible in the future, she certainly doesn't expect or want it any time soon. Significant others just tie one down and that doesn't really work with her desire to constantly move and change. Of course, this doesn't stop her from 'spending some time' with another, but it rarely lasts. It's generally Kitty to break it off. Not only does she not wish to be tied down, but she has yet to meet somebody who can keep her attention or stimulate her mind long enough. Because of this, she doubts she'll be staying with anybody anytime soon. Despite her not wishing to stay with anyone, it doesn't stop her from being quite a flirt. In fact, at times, she can be down right promiscuous. Sexual advances and flirtatious looks are what gets Kitty the things she wants. She views men as somewhat as a challenge. If they fall to her feet, they don't interest her any. She shrugs them off with a laugh and moves on. However, when they show no interest, she doesn't get upset or give up. In fact, this somehow causes her to become all the more attracted to them. However, it's probably just due to her needing everybody's attention at all times and enjoying the chasing - and most importantly, the win.
Despite not being a huge fan of being tired down to a person, Kitty secretly envies the idea of a steady family life. Children actually tend to hold her interest better than boring adults. It seems a little silly, but something about their childish innocence really brings about a happier and more pleasant side of her. Not only with literally young people, either. She tends to like innocent and child-like people in general. They seem so untainted by the world and that fascinates her. She tones down her overly sexual tendencies and enjoys life a little more freely. She also likes to behave as a sort of 'mummy' figure and help them through problems that she once had. However, her profession of choice frowns upon pretty little sex kittens growing large due to a child. Just the same, she does hope to eventually have one of her own. Whether or not she has a husband to do it with.
Though it is generally covered up by flirting winks and puckered lips, Kitty is almost shockingly intelligent. She is quite good at quickly solving mathematical equations, though her heart lies more towards psychology and sociology. The study of human tendencies and the way the brain works actually interests her quite a deal. In fact, it's positively fascinating what humans beings can come up with in her opinion. What makes people tick in such a manner and why some lean to unusual or out of the norm sort of things. Plus, peoples' faces when you're lecturing them about various psychological issues can be rather humorous. Because of her actually there intelligence, Kitty feels the need to constantly be mentally stimulated somehow. Even with something as simple as a game of Sudoku to keep her mind active. She is the same with dealing with people. If they aren't animated enough, she'll grow quite bored and end up excusing herself from the situation entirely.
PARENTS: Alda Manchester and father unknown.
SIBLING(S): Gabriella and Isabella
OTHER IMPORTANT FIGURES: -
HOMETOWN/HOME AWAY FROM GRIMM'S: Trenton, New Jersey
OVERALL: Truth be told, Kathryn couldn't say what it was like growing up with a father. However, that nonsense had never been terribly important to her and her mother was sure to stomp out any curiosity over the mysterious man. Truth be told, she didn't really care. As long as her mother continued telling her these marvelous stories of how handsome and brave he used to be. Like some sort of superhero from a comic book. The story changed every time. Some day he'd be a cop, others a firefighter, the next day a spy. However, Kathryn had to admit, the best job her fake father ever had was that of a fearless detective. That one provided her with fabulous stories of mystery and thus, it all seemed terribly romantic. Of course, Kitty grew to know her father probably never did any of the things her mother's stories went on about. He was probably just another one of her little boyfriends that slipped in and out of the house when they thought the girls were asleep. He was probably just like them and an accident occurred. She wasn't even sure if her mother knew who the man was herself. Because of that, she never questioned the stories. Not even when another mysterious man seemed to sneak by and Kitty was blessed with younger twin sisters.
Kathryn, Gabriella and Isabella or Kitty, Gabby and Izzy, as her mother like to call them were not exactly 'ordinary' girls. It was clear from as soon as they could walk that the girl's were exceptionally graceful. This wound up throwing the three of them into dance classes. However, it was once Kitty was able to inspect the ballet mistress' piano that another discovery was made. As the mistress pressed the keys, Kitty began to hum along to the exact same note. After a while, she convinced the girl to sing a little song and sure enough, Kitty was not only good - she was really quite exceptional. Unfortunately, that was when the problems started.
The Manchester girls were not known for their extensive wealth. In fact, truth be told, they were quite poor and Alda was not going to be able to keep the girls in these dance classes much longer on her own salary. That's what the brilliant idea struck her. Why pay for the girl's lessons when they could pay for their own and then some? So, the girls with their fantastic talent and attractive looks soon found themselves shoved into every pageant, talent show and country fair their mother could possibly find. Sure enough, the little singing and dancing trio was worth more than one could imagine. Eventually, they were even traveling out of state up to New York and Chicago for bigger competitions. After all, how could one deny tossing money at three adorable little blondes. Especially when one had a voice, not like an angel, but more like a big Broadway voice that could belt for hours. Kitty sure seemed to be packing a lot of power into those tiny lungs of hers. However, the more and more Alda pushed for the girls to continue on with the performing, the less fun it was and the more the girls were beginning to grow tired of the whole charade.
One escape that Kathryn was able to get into, however, were books. Now, they didn't really suit the little showgirl she was growing up into. As such, her books (and glasses) were entirely shunned by her mother and had to be done in the utmost secrecy. Some of the stories she found the most exciting were that of Arthur Conan Doyle. After all, her favourite tales of her 'father' were that of him as a detective and in a way, she liked to imagine her father was similar in nature to Sherlock Holmes. Brave, witty and insanely intelligent. Her father must be like that, that's why he didn't have the time to stick around, he was too busy saving lives over in England. However, what stuck to her even more was the amazing Holmes was the mysterious Irene Adler. Kitty immediately took a liking to the woman with her wit, charm and best of all, the fact that she could dupe the super-sleuth. Plus, Kitty felt a personal pull since Irene was her middle name and she too was from New Jersey. Most importantly, however, Irene was a singer. Supposedly the most beautiful and talented around. At a young age, Kathryn hope that she too would grow into such a talented femme fatale.
When she was eleven years old, she got the infamous letter from Grimm's. Truth be told, she almost didn't even attend. After all, her mother didn't want to be without her star. However, Kitty insisted that this was for the best. After all, how could they hit it back unless she got the proper training, right? So, she was willing to give up the child, only with hopes she'd come back even more talented (and worth even more money) this time around.
GENDER: The girly kind!
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD: Hi ! :] I'm nice, I swear.
RP EXAMPLE: don't go above and beyond; let us see your average, every-day post
|Santana wasn't usually the type to be alone. Literally. She rarely walked home from school, bustled through the walls or went out without at least one person at her side. Generally those people being a fellow Cheerio or a suitor of some sort looking for a good time. Whether or not they knew of her severe commitment issues or not, she never seemed to be low on dates. Then again, with a body like hers, she was sure she'd never be low on dates. |
However, there were times in her life that Santana felt a little.. overwhelmed. It didn't happen often, of course. Once in a while, the little Latina actually did enjoy a bit of alone time. That's probably why after a rather strenuous Cheerios practice following school, she did not head straight home where she would risk probably having to deal with others. Instead, she slipped her iPod out of her backpack and slid the buds into her pierced ears, deciding a walk would be best to help soothe her exhausted mind.
Yes, Santana Lopez was a pro with physical activity which is why she was a top Cheerio and even gaining a few solos during Glee club. However, mentally, she was not nearly as bright. The girl wasn't stupid, per say, but she found it very easy to find herself getting frazzled and lost. She wasn't quite on Brittany's level, but there definitely was a reason (aside from sex) that they were so close.
With Glee now being a rather large part of her life, Santana was beginning to find a new found appreciation for music. Sure, she enjoyed dancing around before, but usually only for the Cheerios or at school dances to impress boys with her shimmying hips. Lately, she had actually found herself listening to the lyrics, enjoying the melody and even found herself humming along to more showtune-inspired hits than her usual pop and R&B favourites. Not that she'd ever tell any of the other Cheerios, of course. That would just be embarrassing.
She wasn't quite sure how long she had been walking and wandering when she finally stumbled upon a familiar looking truck. Her dark eyes squint and she strolled up to the vehicle. Sure enough, there was her fellow Glee club member (and occasional on/off fling) laying across the hood. A smirk blessed her full lips before she rather loudly knocking on the hood near his head, intentionally trying to startle him before reaching up to pull out her ear buds to get ready for him to snap at her for interrupting his lounging.
