FictionEdit

ON THE BRINK OF A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGHEdit

A brilliant researcher, but a shy, lonely person, Kate Winthrop has been working at the Miskatonic Science Labs for 4 years now and her supervisor still doesn't know her name. That doesn't matter to her though, as she has been working to complete a private quest for most of that time. Almost 3 years ago, she watched as a device malfunctioned, and Professor Young, her long-time mentor and friend, was torn apart by an indistinct creature that shrieked and gibbered before vanishing into the night. Since then, she has delved into darker scientific studies, always hoping to find something that would allow her to find and defeat that creature along with others of its kind.

Tonight, her research has finally paid off, allowing her to create a device that can defeat the alien beings she has detected in Arkham![1]

Very few of Kate Winthrop's scientific colleagues even know her name. She is painfully shy, but nonetheless possessed of a powerfully focused scientific mind. Several years ago, she watched as her mentor was devoured by an unthinkable creature from another world. A weaker mind might have gone mad or dismissed the sight as a hallucination. But Kate knew with full clarity what she saw and has spent her time ever since studying the phenomena that caused the tragedy. The result of these studies is the flux stabilizer. The device is still a work in progress, but she hopes to perfect a device that can permanently protect this world from the monstrosities that dwell in the worlds beyond. Kate is always eager to test the device or do more research at any place evidence of the supernatural may be found.[2][3]

The Investigators of Arkham HorrorEdit

Kate has been working at the Chemistry Department of Miskatonic University for four years.[4]
