Bio: Kat comes from a long line of over-achievers. Her elder brother and sister (twins!) each had a year as student body president, and graduated top of their class and as valedictorians. Now they study Harvard and Yale and are up-and-coming doctor/lawyer/co-presidents of the United States. Kat's younger sister is only in seventh grade but is in all honors classes, captain of the badminton team and has a flourishing social life. Kat's mother is a perfectionist who either cannot grasp or refuses to grasp the fact that she bore four different children with four different personalities and strengths. Ever since the day she was born, Kat had been compared to her brother and sisters on every little thing she did. While Kat preferred to sit by the window with a storybook, her siblingsr chose to tinker with a chemistry set or play sports or do their homework. Kat has always been deemed as not good enough by both of her parents. Her childhood was full of Kat questioning "what am I doing wrong?" her grades weren't bad. She was obedient and behaved, she was even so quiet sometimes people forget she was there. But it never really got any better. As she matured, her parent's nit-picking evolved into something borderline verbal-abuse- or at least that's how it felt like to Kat. She was constantly insulted and torn down. Her parent's flung words corroded in vemon at her as carelessly as they would swat flies. Idiot, stupid, ungrateful...the list went on, and her siblings never batted an eye or even tried to help her in her studies. Kat's grades were slipping and so was her mental health. Locking herself in her room with a book was escapism- but sometimes it just wasn't enough. She could still hear her parents yelling from behind the walls.
That's when Kat turned to drugs. It's started with weed, and eventually to opium, then to shrooms, LSD and heroin. It was recreational at first. Only when it got /really/ bad. she would tell herself. Just to wander through her own Wonderland for a while. But Kat found herself using almost every other day. If her parents knew, it would be crippling. Not only because of the consequences their wrath would be, but also the disappointment Kat feels from her own actions.
Kat has always segregated herself from her peers, which has always made her a bit of a loner. Kat prefers to drink and get high on her own than in groups, and only small ones if ever. She's very bright, and excels in English and Social Studies- more so Social Justice and Psychology. She carries herself as very aloof and mysterious. Not many people really know much about her, and some have never even heard her talk, but those who have think of her as sarcastic and witty. She only ever talks if there's something important to say, so when she does you best listen.
Flaw: Kat has pretty much become dependent on her drugs. It's not much of a devastating secret to keep from her peers, but it is one to keep her family. She had also contemplated suicide, but has never acted on her thought.
Model: Soo Joo Park
+ Why do you want to be a part of this RP?
I really like Skins, and also all the roleplays I've been in recently have been /really/ different from this one, and I wanted to play a character that's troubled.
+ Will you be able to make at least 2 sets a week? Will you be active and comment on others sets?
I will try my hardest, but it always feels as if right when I join a new RP I'm forced to abandon it because school is too demanding.
+ Random fact about yourself (We want to get to know you all!) I don't know I'm actually really boring. I have one double jointed thumb and I can make it do the worm? people say it grosses them out but it's jUST A DANCING THUMB.
