While Kathryn is the fourth of the five Bones Radford children, she exhibits many of the trademarks of a youngest child: she's spoiled, she's impetuous, she's impulsive, she's rebellious, she's often immature, and she can be impatient and manipulative. However she also has a youngest child's most positive traits: she's charming, she's affectionate, she's artistic, she's sociable and popular, and, yes, she loves to be the center of attention. Maybe Kathryn just didn't get the memo that Jamie was born after her, or maybe being the youngest girl had a more significant impact on her than total birth order.
That said, Kathryn experiences the same tendency towards worry as the rest of her siblings. Unlike them, however, she channels it into brashness, figuring that if she is bold and brave and out there, the things that concern her cannot touch her. Courage in the face of fear and whatnot. Thus, she is a born Gryffindor. And the first of her siblings to Sort into her father's house. This only serves to make her feel even more important than she did already.
Kathryn can also be very dedicated and hard-working. For years she made ballet her first priority in all things. Though that has somewhat fallen by the wayside in the face of boys, and clothes, and flirting, and being popular, she still finds time to sneak off to an empty classroom several times a week to practice by herself. She knows that the barre is one of the few places where she can find her center. When she's on holiday hell or high water cannot keep her from attending at least one class every day. Some might find this dedication confusing as Kat can come off so flighty, but you can't be a child of Susan Bones Radford without a little bit of Hufflepuff work ethic shining through somewhere.
Above all, Kathryn loves freely and loves to be loved. She cares about her family and her friends (and, yes, all those boys who dance attention on her, even if she can't always remember their names). She cannot stand it when someone doesn't like her and wants to do everything in her power to change it. One of the hardest things for her to come to terms with in her life has been her sister Grace's friendship with their cousin Susannah. She's Grace's sister! And Susannah is really closer to her in age! She feels left out of their special bond and sometimes that causes her to not act like her best self. She always feels bad about it afterward. But, well, apologizing is not Kathryn's forte.
Maternal Grandparents → Oscar Bones & Helen Bones. Both Purebloods. Both retired Ministry big wigs or something. Paternal Grandparents → James Radford & Eleanor Radford née Scrimgeour. Purebloods again. He's a retired Auror and she's disapproving.
Uncle & Aunt → Damien Proudfoot & Davina Proudfoot née Radford. He's pretty cool for a scary Auror. She's just straight-up scary.
Uncle & Aunt → Simon Proudfoot and Hannah Abbott. They're complicated.
Cousin → Susannah Abbott.

Kathryn Eleanor Rose Bones Radford was born the fourth child of Henry Radford and Susan Bones Radford, etc, etc, idyllic happy childhood, blah blah blah. Kathryn isn't ungrateful for her very nice family and very nice life, mind you, she just doesn't think it is very interesting to write about when there about fourteen other places you can read all about it. She loves her family and her parents, even if her Dad is super uptight and she's pretty sure William is well on his way to being just as bad.
The sibling Kathryn is closest to is her younger brother, Jamie. He's a fellow Gryffindor and he's always been an awesome partner-in-crime. Only Jamie can call Kathryn "Kay", and only she can call him "Jay". They've always had secret plots, and hideaways, and adventures. Recently, Jamie told Kathryn an even bigger secret than any of those: that he's gay. This didn't exactly surprise Kathryn, though she'd also never really thought about it before. She was completely accepting and thinks he should just tell the rest of their family since none of them are going to care either. She's having a hard time understanding why Jamie thinks it is something he needs to keep a secret at all. She just wants it out in the open so they can check out boys together.
Kathryn kissed her first boy at Fledglings, Hatchlings, Cubs & Kits when she was four years old. It would be inaccurate to say that she hasn't slowed down since, but she'd picked it up again by age thirteen and has become very proficient in the meantime. At first she had boyfriends, but tired of that rather quickly. Boyfriends, she finds, are exceedingly demanding of ones time and energy and are far more trouble than they're worth. Of course, declaring that she wasn't going to seriously date anyone anymore (combined with the fact that, well, she's pretty hot), made Kathryn the girl that everyone wanted to date. These days she has a slew of, mostly older, admirers who are constantly after her attention and she gives it to whomever she feels like at any given moment. This suits Kathryn just fine, really annoys her brother William, makes her unpopular with some of the other girls, and must remain a secret from her father at all costs.
