There are people that are said to brighten a room just by being there. This is the case of someone taking that expression literally. Standing tall and proud, this humanoid rendition of a sabertooth tiger is composed almost entirely of swirling plasma glowing in violets and streaked with reds and oranges. Her hands and feet are clad in a dark slag, cracks glowing with the same intense colors as the rest of her, and these coverings extend in fragments towards her elbows and knees. More of the same dark material has collected around her hips, her shoulders, and in dreadlock-like strands of hair. Her eyes are completely white, hints of an ultraviolet glow forming a feline iris to those looking carefully. Instead of horns, like her caracal form before, Kat has an impressive pair of fangs befitting her chosen form, made of a blackened metal similar to that of her hands, feet, and hair. She's just as curvy as she's ever been, and hasn't found a reliable way to wear clothing without it simply burning off. Fortunately for the censors, however, there's nothing to gawk or stare at.
- Caracal (Endotherm)
In the world of anthropomorphics there’s a saying: That which stands up stands out. Namely, ears. Kat is an exemplar of this either by intent or accident. Her head is capped with two snowy white ears, streaked with hints of a coppery blue here and there and ‘tufted’ with long, narrow spikes of clear ice that refract and fragment the light that passes through their many facets and curl back like horns. Her hair, a deep black with streaks of snow crossing against the grain of what normal hair would be, rolls down between her shoulderblades before coming to a stop. Thick ‘horns’ of ice grow from her head, swept back starting from the crown of her head and continuing to the base of her skull, the thickest pair forming just behind the foremost. The horns themselves are pale in color, a similar blue to her fur, and have a similar prismatic effect to the tufts of her ears. Her face, especially given the look of her ears, identifies her as being at least loosely related to the caracal. Her fur is streaked and patterned with blues and whites, highlighting the contours of her face as if by design. Her eyes are themselves a vibrant purple ringed with violet, though they seem to have been plucked from within uncanny valley- perhaps they seem too glassy, or they don’t quite move correctly. Moving on from her slightly unsettling gaze to the rest of her yields a fairly pleasing form to behold. Her body is not without its curves and swells, giving the feline a soft, voluptuous figure. Her clothing speaks to a degree of modesty, tending to favor darker tones with the occasional accent of red or purple. Function over form, she's often in sturdy pants and a high collared work shirt, though these tend do be well fitted to her curves. Her tail is long and slender, curled behind her with the occasional icicle hanging from it. She keeps her pawed feet bare, likely because good shoes are hard to find.
- Frigid Tiefling (Endotherm)
What was once a paradox of a desert cat made of ice is now.. a Tiefling made of ice. she's a voluptuous blue humanoid with four fingers, a whippy, spaded tail, and quite the impressive rack (of horns). They're a reptillian array, two-by-eight with the second rank back much more pronounced, and an additional two in line with them just to the outside.
She's adjusted to the new form with stride, putting an outfit together that highlights her curves: A short jacket, a short skirt, a camisole beneath the jacket, and a belt to tie everything together.
Thanks to where she got this new body, some of the ice she's made of has a distinct glow to it. It's been manipulated carefully to accentuate her features, highlighting her lips, cheeks, and belly. There's also a fair number of streaks up her arms and legs, where she pulled the water in in the first place.

Kat is a Thermic Elemental. More specifically, she’s what’s known as an Endotherm. To most, this boils down to “Ice Elemental”. She’s comprised almost entirely of frozen material, usually water ice with some other particulates and fun stuff mixed in. With the strange appearance, spikes, and little motes of frost that like to orbit around her out of the way, she’s lived a fairly average life. At some point in her recent past, she took a job with a private security firm, got herself some training, and found she was a fair hand with a rifle. Training, however, is as far as she got. Her company never put her into the field, likely because they didn't want the liability of having an unknown factor in their operations (how exactly do you get an insurance company to provide health insurance for an inorganic being, or exempt said being from a company policy without serious audits?).
After finding that many decent organizations were unable to get around the whole “Not a living thing” issue and wouldn’t hire her, she decided to make the hop to another planet and try for a more interesting existence. This, of course, failed. She wound up headlong in a wormhole and is.. hopefully somewhere interesting this time.
- About Thermic Elementals
Thermic Elementals, endotherms in particular, tend to be paradoxical. An endotherm tends to manifest as living ice, but is not strictly an ice elemental. Their influence over their own manifest form is enough to move fluidly and with grace, but beyond that they do not have the ability to, say, make a living snowman or an elaborate castle. Often times an endotherm will attempt to assimilate into a culture or group that interests them, rather than seek out more of their own kind (A generally fruitless endeavour.) Thermic elementals are capable of traveling across spacetime at relativistic speeds with relatively terrible accuracy. More often than not, the thing that kills a Thermic is overshooting a planet and hitting the local supermassive and disappearing into the event horizon like so much space junk. Older thermics tend to drift lazily from planet to planet, star to star, consuming the thermal energy there to find before drifting off to somewhere warmer.
A Thermic is, typically, born via a sort of mitosis. A parent elemental consumes a dying star (which, often times, is dying because of the parent to begin with), and in doing so absorbs enough energy to split their being, creating a new elemental.
Kat is no exception, having chosen to live on a world with a reasonably advanced civilization and a lack of the flagrant xenophobia that tends to plague that stage of cultural development. That is, until she grew tired of her current location and made the hop to another world. Or so she thought. As it would turn out, she wound up caught by a wormhole that ferried her off to Infinitas. It’s not the worst outcome of a jump, but it’s certainly not what she’d hoped for.

While Thermic Elementals are capable of interstellar travel, this is not a power Kat would have ready access to on Infinitas, as it would remove her entirely from the play area with no way to return.
