packed and book the first flight to Iron Reach! We have to move
on this now!
Katherine's story is one of equal parts tragedy and excitement. She's known great loss in her young life; the loss of her father, the picking-apart of her estate after his disappearance by greedy family members, and the scorn of those she sought help from to find her father. Yet, despite it all, she carries on. She's become close friends with her cousin Rose Sabbot
and the mysterious Grace Saxford
, faced down ancient threats with the help of Duncan Hendricks
and Elijah Butler and brought to light the tyranny of The Prime Minister.
Katherine has few true friends left in the world. Most of her family has turned their backs on her once they realized her inherited wealth would be funneled toward, rumors, mysteries and a futile search for her father. The only family member left that she trusts is her absent-minded and effervescent cousin, Rose Sabbot.
Outside of Rose, the only other person Katherine would consider a trusted friend is the airship captain, Duncan Hendricks. The cocky, brash and headstrong pilot may have initially been attracted to Katherine's good looks, innocent charm, and deep pockets but their relationship has evolved into one of mutual respect, trust, and genuine affection.
In her quest to find her father and finish his research into the unknown she's crossed many enemies who've vowed revenge but none of these threats comes close to the one presented by Dorian Loeb
. Dorian seems to be irrevocably interwoven into the research her father was pursuing as well as his disappearance. Dorian is obsessed with the Harrington bloodline and manipulating the last of their lineage to some dire and final demise.
Katherine Harrington is a Support character with a specialization in Optimizing her turn and that of her ally's for success. Her turn will begin with cycling the top card of the asset deck. This allows her to open up the start phase having potential removed an unhelpful card from the top of the Hero Asset deck. During the course of her turn Katherine's 3 Ingenuity and 3 Savvy will allow her considerable opportunity to manipulate decks in her favor and to draw beneficial cards as needed. And, come the end of the turn she may be left with an excess of helpful cards in hand, one of which she is allowed to pass off to an ally.
Katherine has several weaknesses that need to be taken into account when playing her though. First is her speed. She's going to need a reliable means of getting to those mysteries she's so eager to explore and her 1 Evasion means she's not going to have a bank of free movements to draw on. Secondly, while Katherine is a great Optimizer it comes at a steep cost in Ingenuity and Savvy chips. She'll need to hope the cards she's drawing can replenish those stats otherwise her Adventure Phase will be spent taking the Lay Low action.
