We've plenty of those at WW already, given that "shrew" is a perjuritive name for a strong minded and outspoken woman. Mind you the name Kathy is more associated in my mind with that image than one of sweetness and light.

Teelo Nori, based on the meaning Kathy could be a name commonly adopted on entry into the cult. Her priority is helping those suffering from the war - maybe she runs a refugee camp near WW. The only problem is that the Teelo Nori cult is regarded suspiciously by many Orlanthi - they think the cult brainwashes orphans into the Lunar way.

The only problem with this line of thought is that it gets her involved in the politics of both sides, and what's a nice girl like that mixing with rogues like Kallyr, Tatius and co.?
