Personality and traitsEdit
Like most magicians, Karine prefered to spend her life in a library with an interesting book and maybe some snacks.
KARINE: Elaborated form of KARIN; Swedish short form of KATHERINE; From the Greek name Αικατερινη (Aikaterine). The etymology is debated: it could derive from the earlier Greek name ‘Εκατερινη (Hekaterine), which came from ‘εκατερος (hekateros) "each of the two"; it could derive from the name of the goddess HECATE; it could be related to Greek αικια (aikia) "torture"; or it could be from a Coptic name meaning "my consecration of your name". In the early Christian era it became associated with Greek καθαρος (katharos) "pure", and the Latin spelling was changed from Katerina to Katharina to reflect this.
- Crazy Cat Lady Subverted. As a witch she is sane, but not entirely in the same reality as her neighbours. She has a lot of animals around her, but mostly they are used as informants. Her social life contains her live-in guardian demon and long-distance communication with other magic users.
