Aesthetic Information and the Suchlike
Cat is a short young woman standing at a whopping five feet, weighing in at one hundred twenty-one pounds. Her Brazilian heritage has granted her beautiful caramel colored flesh while her love of hygiene has granted her a smooth complexion. She refuses to cut her dark, chocolate mane, therefore it’s found its way extending just short of her waist. Her eyes switch between the colors of a soft powdery blue with green flecks and a stormy grey hue. Her physique is one to marvel – Not just the curves, but the muscle. Though she looks petite and harmless at first with slender limbs, well-cut muscles become visible with just a flex. Though not quite manly. The whole of her back is covered with a Celtic cross being embraced by a rose and its thorny vines. On her right foot is a blue rosary that shows the beads wrapping about her ankle while the cross itself rests atop her foot. Her right forearm reads Descanse em paz: Melina Rodriguez y Javier Rodriguez del Rosario in memory of her dead brother and mother. Her left forearm reads Para todos a quem eu amo, vou sacrificar tudo. Translation: For all those I love, I sacrifice all. On her right cheek, tattooed is the kanji symbol for strength and beauty. She sports a rather dashing bullet wound scar on the left side of her abdomen. She’s usually got some kind of pretty ornament dangling from her navel – Yes her navel is pierced, as is her tongue and her ears from tip to bottom. Long story short: She's the personification of deadly beauty.
Thalia's voice fits her
Cat is very outgoing, never afraid of a challenge; a natural leader. She's flirtatious and not afraid to use her seduction to get her what she needs. She relies on her charm and slight manipulation to get her out of tight spots. Her ego is rather large, though so is her heart. She can be really kind and always protective, but as sweet as she is, she can be a bitch as well. She's usually passive aggressive about her anger at first and will reply to her harasser with dry sarcasm, cold humor, and witty remarks. Once she’s been thoroughly pissed off...watch out. She’s prone to taking her anger out through violence unless she’s been directed elsewhere by someone close enough to know how to handle her. Cataleia has always been one to be optimistic, but she has her own pains like everyone else. Rather than sob to others, she finds release in her lights and music in the most cliché of ways. Yes, she will sing and dance her heart out in solitude, surrounding herself with beautiful lights with which she finds her comfort and serenity. Cataleia loves cars. She doesn’t know shit about them other than she likes how they look. She has her own four vehicles that she was gifted by her father over the years and she takes care of them as though they were her children. Cataleia is a very busy young woman and seems to always be multi-tasking. She seems to always be practicing something, though that just adds up to her resume of skills. Though, as of lately, she’s decided that she knows enough and will be relaxing just a little bit more. When time comes that she, her loved ones, or an innocent person is threatened, she becomes a cold-natured woman that would not bat an eye at taking life if it meant that an innocent life would be spared.
Cataleia is indeed a true patron of the arts and enjoys all forms of art. She took over the Performing Arts Club after Kurt Wagner and has done her best to bring it justice, planning to hold monthly art displays, concerts, talent shows, and dance recitals. She knows there are few students left, but she has opened the extracurricular clubs refugees as well. To instill some sense of...normality.
All kinds of food. Cataleia often eats her meals as though she will never see food again. She's also been known to hoard sweets in her room and office. She enjoys a fine meal, by her hand or any other as long as it ends in her stomach.
"I work out!"
Cataleia loves working out and can often be found in the recreational hall. Working out doesn't necessarily mean pumping the iron and doing push-ups. She has to make time for her other athletics. Her regime consists of dance, parkour, martial arts, and weightlifting. She spends at least four hours a day working out.
Singing and composing.
Cataleia enjoys singing, of course. Many times, its just to hear her own self singing. Her ears are beyond sensitive, so she likes to have something that's easy on the ears. "What better than my own heavenly voice?!"
Cataleia is heavily a romantic and often daydreams about that one person that will come one day and sweep her off her feet. The sad part? She's never had time for a romance to last. But now, she's mastered all that she needs and its time to take life slow. Maybe she'll find someone to settle down with.
Friends and family, of course!
And that's not just because of her ethnicity. Cataleia grew up on the Xavier estate and saw everyone there as family by one way or another. She was very close to them and developed tight bonds that makes her willing to lay her life on the line for them.
Cataleia loves to teach others anything and everything she knows. Knowledge is a precious gift and she believes that everyone is entitled to it. Her favorite things to teach are Martial Arts and PAA classes. Knowing that someone will walk away from her class knowing a little better how to defend themselves warms her heart.
People who think they have any artistic talent - But really don't.
She hates to see atrocious paintings or drawings and hear people call it art. She hates to hear people banging on pianos or plucking away at random guitar strings and calling it music. She absolutely abhors hearing people sing in cracked voices and uneven pitches and then dare to say they should be on stage.
Not homeless people. Hobos. She has seen way too many films in which unsuspecting passersby get shanked and robbed, left there to die by a dirty-looking man with wild eyes and insane body hair.
She hates snakes who would dare to double-cross her or lie to her. Okay, yeah. She's lied and double-crossed people, but it was and is part of her job description. She has never double-crossed people who didn't deserve it. Yeah, it might seem self-righteous and arrogant. Maybe a bit hypocritical. But that's how it is.
She can't stand people who don't take care of their body or some sort of pride in their appearance. Like her friend, Zalika, she is a health nut and tries her best to make sure her students are healthy
She cannot stand people being judged for what they are rather than who they are. She has seen many good people have their entire lives ruined because of simple suspicion and accusations of being mutant. The fact that a person's good deeds would be dismissed because they are different sickens her.
She has been doubted many times and talked down to because she is female. She is so not down with that "1950's bullshit". She's the type of woman to punch a man in his dick for any obviously sexist comments. She does not believe that one sex is stronger or better than the other. Its all about the individual.
Kitty has several habits, though the most noticeable one is her obsessive grooming. Whenever she has a spare moment, she's brushing her hair or checking on her manicure. She often stops in front of anything that provides a reflection to ensure that she looks picture perfect, as though paparazzi will pop out at any given moment. Another habit of hers is her constant production of melodies. I don't mean that music that comes from her. She's always humming or outright singing while conducting menial chores such as paperwork, cleaning, cooking, or reading. Whenever she's working out, she produces an array of rock and heavy metal music all around her. She also seems to always have her headphones in with her iPod at her side. Even though music is rarely ever on, she simply enjoys the feel of having her headphones in.
Cataleia has a serious repression issue when it comes to her less than happy emotions. She bottles her regret, sorrow, and fears and keeps them bottled for long amounts of time. This often results in nightmares and a loss of sleep that she’ll catch up on during the day. When her emotional walls come down, she often suffers from dysphoric mania. Something that a few people have noticed, but no-one says anything about is the fact that she often hallucinates, seeing and speaking to her deceased loved ones - Generally when she’s alone. She knows they’re dead, but she wants to believe that they aren’t.
Corresponding with her personality and her physique, Cataleia wears revealing clothing – Her shorts are short and her pants are tight. Her tops are low cut if not mostly unbuttoned. She favors the colors purple, blue, pink, and green and is rarely seen wearing something not of those colors unless it’s black. She usually has her hair down unless she training/working out, then it’s tossed up in a messy bun that usually falls down later on anyways. She doesn’t wear any bracelets or watches, hating to have her wrists cluttered. The only jewelry she’ll wear are her navel piercings, earrings, tongue piercings, rings, and necklaces. She hates hoop earrings.

WeaknessesAcoustolumikinesis is defined as the ability to create, control, and manipulate sound waves and light photons. And not just photons of visible light. Though, I am bonded to light and sound on a cellular level, making me a slight more proficient and stronger with my abilities than others with mutations of a similar nature. Through rigorous training with Professors Xavier, Munroe, and Summers as well as intense studying in the various fields of Photology and Psychoacoustics, I learned exactly how to use my mutation in every way possible. One of my easier feats am what one would call being Omnitone. My vocal chords can produce any sound, no matter the pitch, source, frequency, or volume. One of my greatest applications of my power is solidifying light photons to create constructs - Whether weapon, shield, or otherwise, as well as morphing the light photons into a form of energy by energizing them, serving as blasts, lazers, etcetera. Doing so sucks energy out of me more than anything else. I am completely unaffected by any sort of light or sound, even being able to nullify them to protect others. I have recently perfected hologram creation through light manipulation, though it takes a lot of concentration because of all the moving and different colors to create and maintain. My more basic applications of my power include inducing seizures, confusion, vertigo, nausea, deafness, blindness, dazes, and unconsciousness - Done by exposing my opponent(s) to varying lights and sounds. That's just simple science. Being able to hear the vibrations produced by things around my, I can use my sound wave manipulation to produce sounds that match the vibration of objects, which can cause them to explode/shatter; like glass. My body is constantly absorbing more light photons and sound waves from around me, constantly bonding to me. As a result, I give off a glow at all times from my luminescent blood, though its more visible at night and there’s always a faint hint of music emanating from me, more audible when I am unconscious. My greatest achievement yet is tapping into the light photons bonded to my body and becoming one with the light. For lack of better phrasing, I suppose it could be explained like so: As mentioned, I have a molecular bond with sound waves and light photons, so in essence, one might say I am sound. Or I am light. Or both. But I aren’t really. Anyways. This bond allows me to focus and get a feel of the light and begin to shift my cellular structure, becoming light and attaining its attributes, including its speed. But, I cannot travel at light speed while in my solid, Sapien form unless I am within fifteen feet of Nolan. - Note that I have been speculating riding sound waves or using them for some sort of flight. It is highly possible for me to do so, but I most likely won't attempt training and practicing to do so any time soon as I feels that my arsenal of applied abilities is enough already.
Mutation related, Black Holes and other forms of nullifying vacuums are her greatest weakness. There's no need for any massive vacuum that would threaten anyone within immediate distance, but even a small one kept near her opponent's body would be enough to render her sound waves and light attacks useless, as the vacuum would suck up the light and sounds with ease. Physically concerned, her right arm is her greatest weakness due to a spar gone wrong with Logan mixed with the attempted help of a young mutant with healing capabilities but lack of experience. If her right arm is hit with enough force, it paralyzes completely from shoulder to fingertips for about an hour at the most.
Cataleia has two garters that sheathe ten kunai a piece. Other than that, she has twin katanas – She has never used a gun never will. Items of sentimental value would have to include the locket around her neck that shows a picture of a younger her, her deceased twin, her deceased mother, and her father. She has four vehicles – A 2009 deep purple Chevy Avalanche, a 1969 royal blue Dodge Charger, a 2014 hot pink Chevy Camaro z28, and a 2016 olive Mustang Cobra. All of her cars have pictures on the dashboards of herself, her mother, her brother, her father, and deceased friends. In her room, she has a photo album with doubles of those pictures and then some. Cat is never ever without her iPhone and her iPad.
Academically, Cataleia excels in American and British Literature. She’s also an expert in Photology and Psychoacoustics, holding a Masters in Psychoacoustics. She’s currently studying college courses for a Doctorate in Photology eventually. Although she is the world’s leading expert on both, she’d like a certificate to show it. She also knows more than anyone at the Academy about mutations, having spent what little spare time that she did have studying them. Physically, the girl’s body is a weapon of mass destruction – Her father is a professional martial artist that’s been training his daughter since she was walking. She now has claimed a red belt, a black belt, and a brown belt. 3rd Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo, 2nd Dan Red Belt in Muay Thai, and 2nd Dan Brown Belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu. It goes without saying that Cataleia is a wonderful singer. With her martial arts training, her father taught her a bit of acrobatics. Though no-one has yet found out, Cataleia is in fact, a contortionist. Stealth is her middle name. Nuff said. Cat’s skills of manipulation, charm, and seduction just about rival Remy LeBeau's. She is multi-lingual and currently is fluent in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Yiddish, Italian, German, and French – Though she’s still learning more. From her years of training, Cataleia has a deep sense of focus and can feel when her mind is being invaded – She can sometimes use her will and focus to force the invader out. She can also predict her opponent’s next move as far as melee fighting, based on their stance and their body movements. Not all the time, but a good deal of the time. Last, but not least – Cataleia is a professional dancer. She also plays piano and guitar expertly. She an expert marksman when wielding her kunai and shuriken and an expert swordswoman when wielding any blade. Cataleia specializes in areas of subterfuge. She's been trained by her father to be a combination assassin-spy, and she does a damn good job of it. She even spent some time under training of Natasha Romanof.
Cataleia-Inocencía Bibiana Rodriguez del Rosario was born in Goiânia, Brazil with her twin brother Javíer. Their father, Estéban, was a master of Brazilian Jiujitsu, Muay Thai, Judo, Taekwondo, and weaponry. Their mother, Melina, was a small-time performer. Both of them were mutants. Cataleia and Javíer lead carefree lives, both training under their parents to one day follow in their footsteps. But that all changed one day - People had begun to grow suspicious of her family when it had been made known that two of her cousins were born mutants. Attacks on her family in Brazil began to happen and their name and faces were put out for the communities to see. Even though Kitty, Javier, nor their parents ever hinted at being mutants or showed signs, they were still targets. Cataleia was four years old, visiting her father's eldest brother and his new wife. She couldn't understand what was going on at the time, but she would soon. She heard shouting from outside, screaming for them to come out and give themselves up. Her uncle and aunt told them to stay inside so that they could go out and reason with their neighbors. They assured them that its all happened before and it would be no hard feat to settle them once more. Cataleia and her brother were peeking from the window to see what the commotion was and were immediately greeted by the sight of their uncle and aunt being gunned down. That was the last straw for her father. Using his mutation, he barreled out of the house, his eyes glowing black. Kitty's mother had grabbed her two children and went to escape through the backdoor. Cataleia knew not what her father did, hearing only strangled screams and cries for help. He met up with them later on the outskirts of town, bringing with him everything that they needed: Important documents, money, and family photos. But they weren't out of the clear just yet. They hopped around from place to place, hiding their faces wherever they went. One day, there was a mysterious knock on their door. Her father answered hesitantly and was met by the sight of a woman with soft red tresses, a man sporting a visor, and a man who's appearance was hidden by a fedora and a large trenchcoat. They greeted them with "We know who and what you are." But before her father could attack, Cataleia had slipped out of the door and quickly latched onto the blue prehensile tail she had spotted under the coated man's trenchcoat. Her father was a bit more at ease knowing that he was speaking with mutants and allowed them into their hotel room. As they began to talk to her parents about a place where they could be safe and their children would get an education, Kitty was distracted herself with the blue man's tail, pouncing it like...well. A kitty. Her parents eagerly agreed and they packed their bags, headed to New York!
Cataleia and her brother absolutely loved their new homes, quickly making friends and integrating themselves into the Academy life. While Javier was busy with sports and clubs and her parents became Professors and X-Men, Cataleia busied herself with learning and competing. Cataleia was excused from doing homework by her Professors, as she begged them to spare her so that she would have that time for other things. Knowing that she would be doing something productive, they granted her request. Life was great. Until Stryker came into her life. She was eight years old when she was kidnapped along with a handful of others, taken away to Stryker's secret lab. It was there that she met Nolan, whom Stryker intended to mix various X-Genes into. Cataleia proved herself to be a hassle for the couple of days that she was in holding, constantly harassing the guards and earning herself some scars and bruises in the process. She did, however, form a close bond with Nolan and made sure to keep a smile on her face while assuring him that they would be rescued. Due to her unruly behavior, she was punished by being the first one to be tested on. Stryker had strapped her down to the table next to Nolan and she held his hand tightly as the process began. The experiment was a failure in Stryker's eyes, as her X-Gene didn't conform perfectly to his, giving him only a tenth of what she was capable of. He tossed them back into their holding cell. The very next day, they were rescued by the X-Men. Cataleia pleaded with them to bring Nolan back with them, claiming that they couldn't let him go back to his family. Afterwards, Nolan was one of the few people her age that Cat would put her schedule on hold for or allow to join in her schedule.
Cataleia continued to excel in school and had gotten her black, red, and brown belts all by the age of sixteen, a year before she graduated. She had also been taking acrobatic/gymnastic lessons from her father, Kurt Wagner, and Remy LeBeau, mastering it with ease. Cataleia, along with others, had been training to become X-Men since they were much younger. Though, of course they knew they would be allowed to venture from the school and pursue other interests until their predecessors had retired. Cataleia, who had been training to specialize in subterfuge and swordsmanship decided that she was going to attend college. She attended Binghamton University to major in Psychoacoustics. She was surprised one day to find a redheaded woman and a brunette man waiting for her in her dorm room as she returned from class that night. A couple of her Professors from Xavier had mentioned Cataleia's skill in subterfuge and combat, asking that they teach her and help her become better with proper training. Cataleia eagerly signed the contract - She had officially became an Avengers' Apprentice that night. She dropped a lot of her free time and spent all of her time between University and S.H.I.E.L.D , though she always made time for Xavier's and family. After graduating at the age of twenty-one with her Masters in Psychoacoustics, having shown a better comprehension of it than anyone they had ever seen (thanks to her mutation), she graduated a lot earlier than she should have, Cataleia became a full-time Avenger and finished her training with Natasha and Bart. Like everyone else, she returned to Xavier's to learn to take the reigns. It was during the summer, and they had all taken 'workshops' for their positions and ran over some training to refresh on working as a team once more. Cataleia had been assigned Head Mistress and Director of the Performing Arts and Martial Arts clubs. She would teach classes on Power Control along with a comrade. She had been voted by her comrades to lead the X-Men as well. She selected Zalika to be her Co-Commander and Lincoln as her Assistant Dean. She also called in a friend to help out, now preparing to deal with the mess the world has placed itself in.
-Her room and office have various secret candy and food holding compartments in the walls, floorboards, and desks.
-Cataleia is able to see lights far outside of the visible spectrum and see three times as far and four times as clear as the average human.
-Cataleia can actually see the light spectrum in a unique way as well as sound waves.
-Her hearing is highly sensitive, as she can hear ten times better and five times farther than the average human. She can also hear things outside of the human range of hearing.
-She has selective hearing and sight.
-Her mother and brother were killed on a mission, fighting against the Snake Society - Adder, Cobra, and Viper are Cataleia's mortal enemies.
