Dotd.pngPhysical Description:

Wearing an elaborate day of the dead style skull mask, bedecked in Aztec jewelry, fine clothing and wearing a top hat adorned with the flowers of the dead, Catrina looks like a walking representation of the doll dandies he/she/it takes its namesake from.

Dotd.pngPersona:

Catrina is a feared denizen of the city of Albuquerque, known to be a prominent leader of the enigmatic and deadly Nosferatu House KæThon (C'Thon) as well as the Heirophant of the local Circle of the Crone. Catrina is known to be a powerful blood sorcerer(ess), a fearsome brute in combat, as well as a ruthless and unflinching steward of Death; going to great lengths to preserve the murderous right of the local Nosferatu over Final Death.

Dotd.pngWhat?... Catrina?

The moniker "Catrina" in this case, has neither to do with the name Catherine nor iterations thereof. It is used as a descriptor in Spanish; Catrin or Catrina meaning fancy, elegant, dapper or dandy. To the right is "El Catrin" or the Dandy from the Mexican variant of bingo known as "La Loteria" in which images are called out, rather than numbers.

La Calavera Catrina was a famous etching by José Guadalupe Posada and the term has been co-opted as a moniker for an art form practiced throughout Mexico in which figurines of skeletons wearing elaborate clothing are depicted going about as they did in life, often socializing, going for a stroll, or working their profession. The dolls are meant to represent denizens of the world of the dead, in which oftentimes the deceased continue living their lives, unknowing or uncaring of their deceased condition.

The actual name of the thing called Catrina is actually unknown.
