PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION


Manip by Fay; Model: Anna Nalick

Cat is, shall we say, small in stature. Just barely 5'3" tall, she used to endure many a jest about her size and took them all in good natured stride. However small she may be, she is finely proportioned with the shape earned from long hours of hard work and dedication to her craft- that and the long runs she likes to take with her four-legged companions every morning.

Rich brown hair falls in long, straight layers, curling several inches past her shoulder. Green eyes and a tanned skin tone complete her look at first glance.

Short she may be, she never quite seems to be viewed as tiny.
   
PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY DESCRIPTION
Picture by Fay

A peppery and tenacious young woman with a strong will and determined nature, Cat has a rather wicked side to her sense of humor. She does not accept failure, but more so her own than anyone else's, however if the fight touches a part of her she will adopt the cause as her own and all had better stand back.

A gentle hand, a firm voice, and a deep compassion accompany her methods of canine handling.

Another point of fact that Cat has been trying to avoid giving credence too, is the attraction she has for the bad boy sort. She is incredibly drawn to a man who can't keep his hands or eyes off of her, someone who desires her that badly.
HOBBIES Working with canines and running.

SIBLINGS Richard Heis, (Alpha) Geneticist (deceased)
SHORT HISTORY Cat was born Offworld and traveled to Pern with her brother, Richard, and parents where she spent most of her time with her best friend, a dainty doberman female that sadly passed away before seeing Pern with her beloved master.

Drawn to the canines brought with them, Cat stuck close to the side of Sarah Young in an effort to stay with the dogs she so loved, and thus found her way to Alpha Base and an apprenticeship under Tina and Chris' mother. As luck would have it, she felt a connection with a male pup from an orphaned litter, a bond growing between them as she mothered him.

Cat trains her doberman, Dunkin, for protection and combat, while the red-pie Borzoi she received from her mentor is learning to be a fine hunting dog.

She moved to Dawnsister's Weyr (after the Threadfall accident that nearly killed her childhood friend, Brownrider Chris Young) and moved in with Chris, gained her Journeywoman status and helped build and open up a kennel at the weyr with best friend Tina Young. The icing on the pasty is that she now also has the great danes she so desperately wanted. Thanks to Sarah.

Cat was previously weyrmated to childhood friend, Chris Young, but found she needed more then she ever dreamed, when the spicy, sensual Spaniard, Angel Aurelio, serenaded her. After living with him, growing more and more in love, they were married in a secret union. They were working out when the best time would be to have the official celebration and public exchanging of vows, when Angel's long lost (and disapproving grandmother) came back into his life.

Cat also has a secret. Sometimes, she dreams of a man with dark eyes. And that desire has led to terrible consequences.

Having an affair with Angel's brother, Manny, resulted in the loss of both men and a new life growing within her. Pregnant and alone, Cat was left trying to come to terms with what she had done.

Cat and Manny eventually were drawn back together but always had the guilt over Angel between them. After Angel's disappearance and presumed death, the couple finally came to terms and married. They share a son, Daniel, and they live at Alpha where Cat manages the canine facility.

TIMELINE
 
  Breeding Notes

The only Great Danes on Pern were born at DSW's Kennel. There were 16 born. Cat kept 15 for her breeding program and personal use, giving the 16th (the only Blue, from Litter: C) to Drew. He named him Galen.

Litter: A; Born 09.32.06.22
Litter: B & Litter: C; Born 09.32.06.23

09.32 Turns End,
Cat gifted Lady Nyneve to Brownrider Sh'ay.

33.3.14
Brangaine and Cat's beau, Angel Aurelio, have been bonding! Looks like another dane has been given a new master.

33.06.16
Cat gifts the brindle, Andria, to wounded rider Zoriah. Upon hearing about Greenrider Zoriah's injury, Cat made the difficult decision to gift Andria to the wounded woman and her family, to help them with the healing process and to give the dane the home she so desired. Andria was great with children but lacked the aptitude for work.

33.09.06
Gwenyver bonded to the child Mym after taking part in rescuing the child at New Ista. Cat made the painful decision to gift yet another of her precious danes to a new owner. Gwenyver loved children. In fact, she adores them so much that she pines for their attention. Giving kisses, sitting quietly while they love on her, horsing around with them or simply laying her head on a sad child's bed, that is what makes this fawn dane happy. The match with Mym was perfect.

No pup is related, all are genetically different.
3 Litters.

Lady Nyneve (white) is deaf.
Lady Nyneve and Blancheflor (both white) will not be bred.

Dunkin and Aine' are expecting!
Date of Conception:
33.07.12
Born: 33.09.17

The puppies!

7 pups (3m, 4f), all black and tan. One of the pups is Rommel, whom Cat has personally taken a shine to. Aine' is homogeneous for black. The pups, if bred to a red, would throw red pups, or if bred to a fawn, they'd throw some fawns and reds.

Scipio, a male, is yet another of the 7, along with Secret
(f) and Whisper (m).
