I'm working on a second steam/dieselpunk novel, and that means reimagining the characters with the latest tech. So, Kate here gets a G3F upgrade.
The setting is the 1920s after the Wonder Metal, Unobtainium, has transformed the world for the last couple of decades. The British Empire is still a meaningful thing, the First World War never happened, and society is somewhere between Victorian and Edwardian culture. There are airships and nuclear reactors: it's a bit of a weird place.
Kate is a chimera, the creation of a mad scientist who has used an isotope to Unobtainium to blend human, panther, and wolf into a single, remarkable girl.
