Most bards are people persons who are masters of diplomacy and making people dance in their hand, and who know everything about basically everything. Katie is not that kind of bard. Katie is the kind of bard who is socially awkward and doesn't quite have the sense to let others just do all of the talking. She is very focused on her art, and spends a good amount of downtime playing around with various drawings and doodles rather than getting to know others or entertaining them like bards normally do. She feels more at home hiding alone in room at an inn than she does in front of a crowd.

When she DOES start talking openly with people (which isn't immediate, it takes her time to warm up to anyone new ever since her mysterious witch encounter left her a little bit scarred for life), she is actually quite the storyteller. They'll also probably quickly pick up on her stories' common thread: they're all ones that somehow involve dramatic romances ranging from the comedic to the tragically doomed. Still, she is very open with people she likes and is the sort who'll try to move heaven and earth to do the right thing--rules be damned.
