Background: Katerina has grown up relatively unloved. She has no memories of childhood and only remembers passing through several contracts. Each time her contractor has died she's moved on without remorse. Her motto is "No looking back." She began forming contracts at a very early age, which began a pattern of neediness. She relies heavily on her contractor for a sense of self worth, even if they are just using her as a weapon. Her first few contractors were relatively unknown and powerless until they bound her to their will. Eventually, stories of a powerful weapon in the form of a woman began circulating, until it reached the ears of a certain someone in the underground.
Because she has grown up without a sense of belonging or warmth, she is incredibly vulnerable to anyone who shows her the least bit of kindness. This has been used to manipulate her and since then she has turned mistrustful and cynical in her worldview. Katerina longs for a life beyond her contracts, but hates the weakness that comes from being alone. So the cycle continues...
Personality: Callous, calculating, manipulative and cold-blooded. Can be very emotions driven and may go into fury-driven rages on occasion.
