Character History:

Kathleen was the middle child of three in an eminently average New York family. Her life was perfectly normal, until 2005 came around; then things changed. First, her older brother moved out to live with his girlfriend in an apartment of their own; then her younger sister, Tamara, first became weird and then ran away.

They couldn't find the wayward teen; neither could the police. After several months, the Brooks family started to give up — until Kathleen ran into Tamara, seemingly for no rhyme or reason. Tamara refused to come home again, but occasional encounters during 2006 proved she was still alive, against all odds — and not any more sane.

Kathleen still hoped she would come home and get help, which is why she was the only one to respond to a letter received on November 7th, 2006. In handwriting that was unmistakably Tamara's, it named a place in Harlem; only Kathleen went to meet her sister there, the next day. In doing so, Kathleen survived the explosion that killed the rest of their family.

Kathleen's grief over their deaths could have transmuted into a hatred for all Evolved, were it not for the fact that her sister demonstrated herself as one such. Instead, she's driven to do her part against terrorism — against people who would use their abilities or even conventional weapons to do harm to innocent civilians. Holding peace rallies or educating people about terrorism isn't Kathleen's style; she took the more active approach instead and wormed her way into PARIAH. Establishing herself as a low-level member of the organization, she played down her dislike of terrorist activities and bided her time, looking for ways to stop the more aggressive members of the group. Permanently, if possible.


Evolved Human Ability:

Kathleen has the ability to enter, observe, and to limited extent manipulate other peoples' dreams.
