Gang leader in San Francisco, a rival of Needles Duncan and of John (Josephine) Powers. Her principal business was (and is) a low-key, high-class brothel. Her nickname comes from her affection for (and some say resemblance to) cats.
Born Socorro Marianela Alvarez in Mexico, sometime in 1910, she came to the United States as a child, working the fields and following the crops with her parents. She is physically on the small side, but shrewd and determined enough to more than compensate.
She is now paralyzed from the waist down, having been shot by Count von Schellen in a gun-running deal gone horribly awry.
