About herEdit

Katherine is a foundling girl who proves to be an unexpectedly fierce nemesis to Pitch. She is the Guardian of Storytelling. Her stories can relive the past and change the future. Katherine is known for recording the adventures of the Guardians and also telling intriguing stories. Katherine possesses a heart shaped face with a warm, childish, roundness to it; being that she is compassionate the possibility of her wearing a kind expression is often inferable. She is small in stature and has been described as having extremely open grey eyes. Katherine begins the series with shoulder length curls of auburn colored hair which grows thicker and longer as the novels progress to a point where she will consistently be seen to tie it back into a loose ponytail. A distinctive feature of Katherine is that she has a particular lock of hair which falls into place over her right eye, only to be brushed out of the poor child's line of vision should her curls begin to bother her. This single curl will loosen when she is calm and twirl together whenever she experiences fear of distress; a habit she may have unconsciously inherited from her adoptive father, as Ombric's moustache follows a similar pattern. In terms of attire, Katherine would be commonly seen in the same yellow fur-coat when she was younger.


Caught up in the battle against the Nightmare King, Katherine finds herself separated by the other children of Santoff Claussen. She feels like she is in transition between being a child and becoming an adult. She thinks and feels in a way that makes her more mature than the other kids and she is a valued member of the Guardians. Katherine is a friendly girl who can find the good in everyone. She is brave and clever, but also very compassionate.


  • "There's something new and strange in the forest."
  • "No! We must stay together. Look! Something's coming!"
  • "Will I be turned into a Fearling?"
  • "But you were also our hero. We were so afraid. And then you came."
  • "Nightlight is a great hero. He was once the protector of the Man in the Moon, and he kept Pitch trapped for centuries! He is fearless and powerful, and now he's our friend and protector."
  • "The Guardians battled you in the Himalayas and at the center of the Earth, and each time, we won the day."
  • "You'll fail. You always do."
  • "But what do I know. You're the Nightmare King and I'm just a girl."



  • Katherine has no memories of her parents, but was at least happily adopted by Ombric.
  • She has a large goose, a rare breed only found in the Himalayas, named Kailash.
  • Once Pitch and Nightlight had been reawakened and the fearling army had presumed to haunt the dreams of Earth's children; the creatures discovered Santoff Claussen and although they did not have the time to cause damage due to Nightlight's intervention; it should be noted that Katherine was the only child to stay calm and had kept the others from running.
  • She is close friends with Nightlight.
  • Katherine creates beautiful and detailed drawings of the places and people she experiences on her journeys with the other Guardians. Mr. Qwerty's magical pages can help Katherine tell stories of her journeys through her drawings back home in Santoff Claussen to the other children when she is physically is not present.
  • She is heavily implied to become the fairy tale character, Mother Goose.
