14 years ago somewhere in the streets of London another stray cat was
born. It was a lovely black and white cat and it was one of the few
lucky ones to survive its childhood. I was that cat. I lived by
wandering around in the city in the search for food. A good thing was
that there were enough mice around. When I was about 2 years old, I
found the house of the DuBois family. There was a nice girl called Elise
who always put out some milk and other treats. I kept going there
frequently and Elise gave me the name Grace. This because of the grace
and the agility I had when I was recklessly running around.
When I got older I kept going to Elise more and more. I slept in the same
room and was very curious about what Elise was doing. So I followed her
everywhere and came in all kind of weird places, but most of the time Elise
was in her room looking at her books for long days.
When I was about 7 years old, I once followed Elise to this weird room. In
it was a man and Elise started talking to him. The man was stirring in a
large cauldron. At that moment I got distracted. I saw a glimpse of a mouse.
So I jumped up the table, dodged some funny looking things, jumped again
over a cauldron and *SPLASH*.
Damn, I didn't made the jump over the cauldron. Quickly I jumped out of the
cauldron and looked around if I could see the mouse. Damn, it was gone!
Then I noticed something weird. My sight has changed. Somehow it has gotten
worse. Then I saw my front legs... well, there were arms and hands. Soon I
had realized that I looked human. Elise and the man looked strangly at me.
It seems that this also had surprised them.
The next years I kept living with Elise. In this time I learned to control
my changes and used it to become cat or human whenever I wanted. In human
form there were a lot of things I could do which I couldn't do as a cat.
Elise learned me how to talk, write and read. Her family accepted me as a
member of their family and mainly Elise's father seemed pleased with another
daughter that was very interested in all other things then books. I often
helped Elise and some of her friends with some assignments they got and soon
became an accepted member of the Lodge.
Through all this time Elise and I became good friends. She learned me a lot
of these 'human' things and when she was reading more books, I runned around
the city exploring and scouting in my cat form. Sometimes I went with
Elise's father to these nice parties and he introduced me as his daughter. I
didn't care much for that, all I was interested in was learning and
seeing all these new things as a human.
At the Lodge I found out that I could get some of my cat features even in
human form. Once there were these scoundrels that were trying to hurt Elise. I
jumped at them and in anger my claws and fangs grew and soon they both
laid dead on the ground.
It's now 7 years ago since I got my human form. I learned a lot and still
want to learn more. In the Lodge I can help people and it a great
opportunity for great adventures.
Grace looks in human form like a 19-23 year old woman. She really is about 14
years old (7 cat years, 7 human years). Her hair is long and coloured black
and white. So some part of it is black and some part white. Her eyes are
green, but look human.
When she gets angry or scared in human form, her eyes will become vertical
oriented cat-eyes and she will grow claws and fangs. That's kind of
scary if you are not used to it.
