EDIT: Changed a few things (not that you can tell now that I look at it lol)
Iiit's Kat! This lady- snakes-on-a-plane.deviantart.c…
I finally drew her face aha~ her appearance is based on Beyonce : D
She's a vizard, the last of my zodiacs, chosen by the Cat zodiac Aspect. (Cat was meant to be the 12th sign, but rat screwed him over~) Because Cat isn't an actual part of the zodiac, Kat herself is unique to them as well. Unlike the rest, Kat was born in Soul Society, and chosen by her zodiac Aspect at birth, where the others were killed and immediately turned into vizards by their Aspects. In relative terms, Kat is in the middle of the age range of the zodiacs.
She was abandoned as a baby, but found and adopted by a retired shinigami couple almost immediately. She knows nothing of her own heritage, but was raised by the Chinese and Japanese couple, and leaned to follow their traditions. Kat, like the other zodiacs, was 'born' a vizard because of her Aspect, and was able to hide it for most of her life, through the academy and up until she learned shikai, which is when her powers were discovered and she was booted from SS. From there, she found the others and started her career as a drifting 'superhero', in her own terms haha.
Kat has the ability to summon and wear a mask that looks like her hollow mask, even in gigai, that doesn't grant her any actual powers. She uses it to help mask her own identity~ (because she enjoys being mysterious and spooky)

Brief personality: Kat is a strange, quirky and somewhat mysterious individual. She has several hobbies, including comic books (a recent obsession), and making herself out to be a superhero herself. Despite her rather outlandish appearance, Kat is a pro at blending into a crowd and making herself unnoticeable. She is friendly, but she always seems like she's holding something back, or keeping secrets, and is quite cunning and a little ruthless in her pursuits. Luckily, she doesn't have many because Kat is rather lazy, and like her zodiac enjoys nothing more than a nice nap. She's quite lucky, which benefits her because she is also rather rash and quick to make decisions. She's quite confident and self-assured, and doesn't spare much thought to the future. She's the epitome of a drifter, and tends not to stick to one group for long. She does miss her adoptive family, and would be the first to rush back to SS to see them if she could. With relationships, much like a real cat, Kat can come off as indifferent one moment and quite affectionate the next. She often keeps her moods to herself and people at arm's length, but her friends know her to be pretty hot and cold, but still quite loyal to the end. She prefers keeping a mysterious and enigmatic air about her, so oftentimes people don't really know where they stand with her. But, she does pick favorites, and lets them in a little more than others. Kat likes being a drifter, and would rather not have real responsibility if she can help it, instead helping people on her own vigilante terms.
