Katerina Nikolievna Rasputin
Katerina stands at 5’1” and weighs about 120 pounds. She has blue eyes and
Due to the bloodline curse, her personality has been affected greatly. Katerina
at times can seem odd and as if she is always on a tangent. Her mind suffers
from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) causing her to have to do specific
things, and believe she must always wear a hat. She can also have brief
psychotic episodes, where she may hallucinate, and have disorganized speech.
Katerina is a very nice and kind person, although at times few may understand
her. She is loyal to those around her that she cares for and can understand
others well for most of the time.
Finally seeking help to deal with her issues, Katerina now has better control
over herself, no longer suffering from psychotic episodes. The OCD lingers but
she has found a way to manage her life by keeping up with her exercise, yoga,
and meditation along with new eating habits, and other natural ways to heal her
mind. She is easier to understand now, and can complete a thought before running
off to the next topic. The change will be evident when speaking to her. Now she
is disciplined, and focused where before she lacked in those areas
Katerina has the ability of poison generation, which allows her to create and
control toxins. She can use this ability against her adversaries by creating a
dust that she thinks up in her mind and produces through her palms and can blow
towards her adversaries. When she sought help for her disorder her ability of
animation grew and changed as she did. Now she has the ability to control and
change molecules. Katerina lost the ability to teleport when she lost her
obsession with hats.
Katerina is good at hand to hand combat. She has now gained the ability to
meditate and remain focused. She is studying natural medicines, yoga, tai chi,
reiki, and learning about the chakras within her body.
Katerina is the youngest sibling in her family with two elder brothers and one
elder sister. Sadly she has seen none of them except for her sister in the past
eight years. She had gone to her sister’s funeral, and she hated that day more
than anything else in her life. For a good portion of her life she felt like an
outcast, being called crazy and weird for a good portion of her life.
Katerina has been placed in several institutions due to her disorders. Each time
though things only seemed to get worse. The medications seeming to only help for
a short period of time before they simply no longer worked. From the age of 8
years old up till now she has been institutionalized several times, causing her
to have never lived a normal life and never going to school with other children
who were defined as 'normal.'
Joining the X-men had been the best decision she had ever made. Her brother
Piotr had been more that she expected and had turned out to be a friend to her,
which had surprised her more than anything. Meeting V was wonderful and having a
sister was a bonus. She enjoyed herself most of the time.
The longer she was there though the more she realized how hard her mental state
made things for her. Regardless of how happy she appeared, she wasn’t. Deciding
to leave for a while she returned to Russia and spent a lot of time alone.
Finally she spiraled into a psychotic break and realized she needed help. She
was only putting herself and others at risk, and now with being a part of the
X-men that risk was too high.
Initially she didn't think that therapy would help, but she decided to give it a
try. Over the first month nothing really had changed but then she had not put in
much effort. Finally she began doing as her therapist instructed and started
with meditation. Over time she found herself in a routine daily, meditation,
then a jog, followed by yoga. She changed her eating habit and sought natural
medicines, which mostly consisted of teas and different herbs.
Finally when she felt stable enough she returned to the X-men. She knew there
were still going to be challenges she would face, now though she felt far better
suited to face them. She knew she would need to begin training and practicing
more with her abilities and learn better control. Her life now would be
disciplined, and focused. She would still have fun, but her control over herself
could never falter. She didn't know the challenges she would face returning but
now she was ready to face them.
