- Edited the description of Lady Katsa: The main protagonist and niece of King Randa of the Middluns, she has one green eye and one blue eye. Her Grace is first thought to be killing after she kills a distant cousin with one blow of her hand as a child. It is later revealed to be survival, enabling her to endure even the harshest conditions (e.g. she never gets sick, can create a fire in poor conditions, and she can hunt and kill any prey for food or protection). Because of her phenomenal combat skills - another aspect of her Grace but also result of years of training - Katsa was used by her uncle to carry out his dirty work. She becomes friends with
Po,but isfurious when she discovers the truth of his Grace because she has a deep hatred towards mind-readers. Gradually, the two come to an understanding, and Katsa realizes that she is in love with Prince Po. She ends up killing King Leck and later becomes a fighting and self-defense teacher to girls.
