Katy Touchfeather is an agent with British Intelligence.
Touchfeather was a young, energetic woman who had wanted to be a stewardess from the time she was 14. In school she usually ranked near the bottom of the passing grades except in languages where she excelled. By the time she graduated, she was fluent in French, Spanish, German, and Italian and could say "No" to men in several other languages. With her good lucks and athletic body, along with the language skills, she was able to get a job with BOAC immediately.
On her first flight she met and fell in love with the pilot, a dashing airline captain who was equally as smitten. They were married just weeks later. After less than half a year had passed, he was dead in a car accident in Rome.
Weeks after his death, she learned that his demise had not been accidental but a murder as he had worked his sideline job, or perhaps real profession, as a courier for a secret nameless British Intelligence Agency. After getting over the shock, she was offered a chance to work for them as well and, interested in a chance for revenge, she agreed.
After months of intense training in all forms of spy craft from codes to killing, she commenced her duties and soon became one of the agency's top operatives. She works for C.W. Blaser, an older spymaster who was the only man she could never fluster when she tried, a point in his favor in her eyes while being a point against her in her own opinion. While Blaser is always respectful when dealing with Touchfeather, he does not hesitate to send her on dangerous assignment when needed.
Touchfeather, who hates her last name as being so incredibly different, uses as a cover her previous role as stewardess but through the influence of Mr. Blaser, she switches airlines to whichever takes her where she needs to be.
