    Personality:

    Kate is Daddy's little princess all grown up. She's never had much of an interest in romance, beyond creating the odd scandal here and there, and always found more worthy pursuits such as her career. But when appearances dictated she needed a partner for something, Kate was never without a date. She knew what she was blessed with, and she has always made a point of using it to her best advantage. Kate is the epitome of the Penrose girl. For the most part she's fun to be around, until she wants something - and she'll stop at nothing to get it. She's playful, even while trying to ruin you, although it would be fair to say that Kate is also quite oblivious to the feelings of those around her and tends to be hurtful even when she's not trying. She's demanding, frustrating, distant at the worst times - and clingy when it's not appropriate. She's everything you don't want her to be one moment, and everything you hoped for the next. She likes to break rules and make jaws drop, but at the end of the day - she will return to what is expected of her at the family level and obey the orders given.

    History:

    Kate was born into the wealthy McElhaney family. Her father was a property developer, her mother an upperclass housewife with a love of gin and gossiping with other ginn'd up housewives in Melbourne's affluent eastern suburbs. She attended an all-girls magical primary in the city, before graduating to Penrose at the age of eleven.

It was during her years at Penrose that she got bored with being a good daughter. She discovered a penchant for playing with people's reactions, and took up several bad habits - smoking, sneaking into Greyheme, playing pranks on the professors, skipping classes and drinking on school grounds for the fun of it... but her parents were too wealthy for even the school to disagree with her behaviour, and her excuses were so innocent and her apologies so sincere she was never given more than a warning for her actions.

    

She first met Alan at an inter-school event, where their scandalous relationship ended abruptly as the pair returned to their respective schools. Two years later, they reunited in Melbourne while at uni, and dated seriously for three years. When it seemed that Alan was ready to pop the question, Kate left him - instead marrying Seth Rice, a man her father approved of. Their relationship lasted three years, and once her divorce was settled, she took to casually seeing Alan once more.

    

She made her way to Headmistress of Penrose, through money and sabotage, but always kept tabs on Alan. Their twisted romance was talk of the halls more than once at Penrose, and though they tried being serious again - nothing ever worked out.

    In late 2008, Kate started seeing Alan's best friend, Matthew Longhurst, after he dared her to try and hook up with him. The pair fell in love accidentally, and married in a surprise wedding on the Murray. Matt's much younger half-siblings Aiden and Valerie moved in with them shortly after the wedding.

    Kate changed her surname again from Longhurst to Belmont, when her husband chose to use his mother's maiden name rather than the surname he was born with. After a very difficult pregnancy, the pair had a daughter, Hazel, who would have been followed by a second daughter, Rylea, but this time the difficult pregnancy was too much for Kate to handle and the baby was lost as a result. 

    The Belmont's problems escalated further still when Matt was hit by a tram in the Melbourne CBD, and has been in a coma since. Matt's brother Adam took custody of Aiden and Valerie, as Kate began to lose interest in the world outside of her work, her daughter, and the desperate hope that Matt would wake up. She moved with Hazel back to Melbourne and rarely comes to Narrie, as the memories in town are too painful for her most days.

    Appearance:

    Kate is moderately tall with chocolate brown hair and a pale complexion. Although naturally straight, she charms her hair into curls for the fun of it, feeling they lend a better feel to her bouncy, bubbly personality, not to mention the illusion of innocence that isn't there at all. She has glasses, though she more often wears contacts, and tends to dress in designer clothes. She is very rarely seen in the same outfit twice, and would probably have a heart attack if spotted in recycled clothes. She doesn't pile makeup on, though she does spend a fair amount of time plucking, primping and preening to get the perfection she needs. She has strong facial features that can switch quickly from 'cute/playful' to 'serious/dangerous' in three seconds flat.

    Secrets:

    Kate keeps a lot to herself. She's an incredibly private person who doesn't like the world to see her as less than perfect. She doesn't like people to see her real emotions, though she does feel them intensely. Her life has been breaking to pieces since Matt's accident, and she wrestles every day with what to do, but again---she won't talk about that.

    General Knowledge:

    It is well known that Kate is a former girlfriend of Alan Burdett. Her status as the headmistress of Penrose is another well known fact, and her rocky history with a number of Narragyambie residents make it hard to find people who don't automatically dismiss her as a bitch.
