They tried to make a human/cat hybrid. They failed. They failed a thousand times.
Something was missing, an element to harmonize two feral natures into just one living being.
When they found out what it was, kari's first version was created. And they succeeded.
They made her forget she had a soul.
Now she could do anything they wanted. Anything they ordered. She was their pet, their paw, their weapon. She was ready to do a lot of bad things with a smile on her face. And she did it.
With no regrets.
Things went like that for a while. But eventually kari's soul overcame her memories.
She found herself drowned in pain and confusion. The the horror for the things she did. The sorrow for the things she didnt wanted to do.
She could wait for them to fix up her mind. But then, she would forget her own soul. She would forget the only thing that made her different from a mere puppet.
So she chose not to forget.
Now she's a stray cat, always running from the ones who created her. Tormented by her past. Alone, wary of everyone and sometimes scared enough put a foot in front of the other.
But she's free.
Away from numbness, she found out her dual nature and could conciliate them in herself. She's a human and a cat. She is who she is.
She's in control of herself, and she can feel the results of her own actions in her soul, wether now or before. She's sad most of the times, but her sadness makes the little happy moments brighter.
In a way, it makes her feel alive.</small>
