Katyusha Lidiya Vasin
• Occult Obsessive
Born in Germany of a pair or Russian scientists that had defected to the west shortly before the fall of The Wall a decade before. When she was still very young Katyusha suffered from a severe bacterial infection that was initially missed due to an unrelated diagnosis of type one diabetes. This damaged her vocal cords and while she has over time healed, it has left her effectively mute. She can talk now, but finds it painful to speak in anything above a loud whisper. Katyusha lived with her parents in the same town she was born in, Bremerhaven, until she was eleven years old and her parents received job offers in the States.
After about a year in her new home she started modelling as it was something that her parents hoped would help her meet new people around her own age. She really didn’t care much for it, generally she was just wearing clothes from various discount lines to be used in their ads. But she did like the money that it gave her and her ability to buy whatever clothing, makeup or any other item that she wanted on a whim without having to worry about having the cash to.
For her fourteenth birthday unlike most girls her age she was allowed to get a single tattoo instead of having her ears pierced. This tattoo was special though, thanks to the research that her mother was doing at the time some of the ink had the property of being gluco-variable. Allowing for the very tattoo to change as her blood sugar levels changed. The tattoo is of a fairy being surrounded by 11 twinkling stars. When she is just right all 11 stars will be lit up, when her levels are too low the stars will one by one fade to being clear, but if she has taken too much insulin they will start to turn black.
Since then she has been making her way through school, transferring without complaint like the dutiful daughter whenever her parent's work required it, even if she would get her revenge by sneaking a bottle of wine. She's worked hard in that time to keep her body in shape in fear of being bumped out by the next cute thing to come along and loose all that money she can use to play whenever she wants.
For a model Katyusha is clearly on the short side even if that means she is of a rather normal height for a girl her age. Standing at 167cm tall and weighing 47kg, despite her best effort she is, according to her photographer, well proportioned even if she wants to get down to a nice 45 kg. The first thing that people notice about her is always her flowing blonde hair, followed soon after by her jade coloured eyes that look ready for a brilliant rose to bloom out of at any moment. She has a number of small scars on her legs from when she was a child and ran into a buckthorn bush with nothing more than a skirt and silk knee socks on.
