She was young and beautiful as a flame with long hair. [1a]
As the forces of Chaos attacked she received a prophetic dream where the whole world fell to the forces of the Dark Gods leaving only one tree. She stood beneath its branches, taking a twig which grew into a sickle and noting the mistletoe growing on the tree. A great host of Beastmen approached and she knew she had a choice to fight them with mundane means or use her magic. She did not hesitate. [1a]
At the subsequent gathering of the Druids at Nemetstein to discuss if they should learn Jade magic from Teclis she told them of her vision and determination to fight. Markus Feintuch argued equally strongly against her but Katelina and her husband Johann Matthias and others set off for Altdorf. [1a]
She would become the first Jade Mother of the newly created Order. [1b]
|I knew I had a choice. I could flee, and die. I could stand and fight with my hands - for that is not forbidden to us. Or I could use the sickle to cut the mistletoe and release the magic within, and in this way defeat the horde. I did not hesitate. Nor should we hesitate now. We must use our powers against the creatures of Chaos. If Chaos should win there will be nothing left of the nature we love.
