Name: Caterina Hannah Valentine (Cat)
Age: Just turned 'sixteen'.
Wearing: Cat loves wearing girly things- frilly skirts, converse, anything pink, bow headbands, dresses...things like that. She loves vintage things, and isn't afraid to shop at thrift stores. Actually, that's her second favorite place to shop. Her first favorite place to shop is Forever 21. Cat loves skinny jeans and tanktops, but doesn't wear them as much as she used to. Her backpack is a light chocolate brown with pink outlining and floral printed.
Cat has dyed bright red hair, and she's not afraid to admit she dyed it- the reason being 'it's the color of red-velvet cupcakes!' Her hair is cut a little below her shoulder-bones with her slight bangs usually always being pulled back into a pouf or pinned back in some way, Cat almost never has them out. Cat usually either has her hair in a perky ponytail, straight out with a flower, straight out with a bow/headband, or just out straight or in waves, or curly. Her eyes are a chocolate brown color, and have flecks of deep, bright blue in them. She wears clear contacts most of the time and is ALWAYS wearing heavy-ish eyeliner and mascara, and shiny pink lipgloss. Cat is very
petite, standing at 5'2 and almost less than 90 pounds. She has a tattoo of the outline of a heart on her right foot, on the toe next to her big toe. Cat got it last year, and her parents don't know yet.
This is Cat in mermaid form. Her tail is silver-ish blue and her top is blue with white/silver floral print.
Species: Mermaid, but nobody would ever know if she didn't tell you.
Abilities: She's allowed to move water without touching it as well as expand it and mold it into different shapes. With this power, the young mermaid can create balls of water, blasts of water or even geysers strong enough to life people off the ground. Cat also possesses a bit of the power to control fire and lightning. Cat also has many common abilities, that all mermaids have. She has a transforming power, in witch they have absolutely no influence, 10 seconds after they come in contact with water. If all water is removed (dried) from her body before the 10 seconds are up then the mermaids will remain in human form. But if not dried, the mermaids will grow tails. Every mermaid has a power over water- Cat's is that she can mold water. If in a special 'moon pool' during a special full moon she (or a mermaid) can get a power over weather. She (or any other mermaid) have also been thought to be able to breathe under water like a fish. She can stay submerged for long periods of time but they still need to breathe air. She can hold her breathe for at least 12 hours before needing to resurface but, since she is still young and doesn't have very much practice, more experienced mermaids can stay under for much longer. In water mermaids (including Cat) have the additional ability of speed-swimming. When she speed-swims her body is enveloped in bubbles that she uses as a jet stream to swim quickly with. Mermaids (still talking about Cat here) tails are also very strong. It is also possible that the place where a mermaid undergoes transformation affects the powers over water.
Other: When she comes into contact with water for ten seconds, she grows her long silver-ish blue colored tail and the top. Her tail is covered in scales and end in a classic dolphin-shaped fluke. She also has a short dorsal fin running along the back of her tail from her waist to a little more than halfway down the tail. Cat (or any other mermaid) also lose their clothes they were wearing in human form which reappear when they become human again. There is a possibility that she could absorb her clothing into themselves as a side effect of her metamorphosis into a mermaid. Her hair keeps it's natural color and length, but any accessory or product in her hair disappears, along with her clothes. When she dries, her hair returns to whatever hairdo it was in. When Cat transforms her hair starts out untangled. Cat (and other mermaids) possess several magic abilities that she hasn't figured out yet, but will figure out along the way.
Cat's personality is a bit like a cheerleaders- perky, bubbly, cheerful, and happy all the time. She's more than a bit of a ditz, and lives in her own world 99% of the time, which makes sense since she's a mermaid. Cat is hopelessly and openly flirty with guys, and doesn't keep relationships for very long. She's probably the sweetest girl you'll ever meet, but hard to keep a conversation with because she's constantly changing the subject and is very, very, random. Despite Cat's happy personality, she is overemotional almost all the time and can get sad very easily, so you'll have to be careful with her. It's still sinking in that she's a mermaid, and she still has to fully learn to cut down the water fights when she's with humans. Cat is super-spacey, but she's fun, and very much adorable. There ARE those rare times she has smart or good-ish ideas, but you won't see that very often. Oh, and by the way, never tell Cat a secret you want to keep. Don't let yourself get fooled- Cat is very manipulating, can be hurtful, and will sabotage you- shes not all cheese and daises. Something, say, endearing
about her is her innocence, it's like she thinks and sees out of a child's eyes. Cat isn't as innocent as she was before, but is still very much so, and probably won't get when your saying something inappropriate. Oh, and she HATES swearing! But Cat is a very, very, very, very loyal friend, and when she gets to know you she'll have your back in every way, and has that way of understanding people because of how different she is.
