Age: 27

Occupation: Writer


Daughter of Helen and Jon West, Cate is a budding writer and life-time resident of Arcadia City.

Since her father’s death 17 years ago, Cate has been haunted by dreams of the terrible event. She blames herself for not preventing his death even though there was no way she could have intervened.

Yuki Takeba has been Cate’s best friend with since they roomied at Arcadia college. Cate and Yuki are both fans of Japanese art and cooking, with Cate preferring the shopping for ingredients for Yuki to cook!

Over the years Cate’s intuition has gotten stronger and stronger. She’s not sure if this is related to her father’s death, or what to do with the“Gift”. She prefers not to think about these things, instead focusing on her writing.

Cate is currently preparing for the release of her first novel with her friend and editor Wesley Carr. The novel goes on sale in Europe on the 5th September.


Writing, going to the Farmer's Market and collecting antique Japanese woodblock prints.
