Kit Trace: Writer. Moron. Kate’s best friend. Occasionally funny (citation needed). Also answers to Red. Immediately forgets how to structure a sentence when asked to write about self. Snarky.
Kate Flynn: Artist. Actual pterodactyl. Kit’s best friend (yeah we’ve heard all the jokes). Also answers to Flynn. Secret weapon is screaming. Morbid stuff. Sparkly stuff. Coffee.
