Given To Me: Introducing The Ladies
Kate is one of the most complex characters in the story. You can read about her in the novel “Last Rites: The Return of Sebastian Vasilis.” also the comic book “Files of Karl Vincent.” # 2. She first appears in “Karl Vincent: Vampire Hunter” # 3. (see the links below.)
Kate is of mixed heritage. Her father was Gabriel Bryant, who was fascinated by Japanese culture. He married a Japanese woman, Satou Rina (now Rina Bryant) and moved to Japan to set up his own business. During the crash of ’87, Black Monday, he lost his business, and, desperate for money, follows his brother-in-laws advice and starts working for a Yakuza gang.
When Kate was 8 years old she watched her father gunned down in cold blood. Her father’s killer was Yoshi Isamu. Isamu accused her father, Gabriel Bryant of killing his brother, a Sumo Wrestler named Funaki. After her father’s death, her uncle led her to a sensei named Mitsuaki, where she trained with revenge on her mind. Her one goal in life was to avenge her father’s death. For twenty years she had nothing else on her mind.
Sebastian leads Karl to Kate while she’s tracking Isamu. After a difficult time convincing her, she finally agrees to accompany Karl and the other vampire hunters on the mission to prevent vampires from taking over the earth.
Actress Jackie Pitts has been cast to play Kate in “Last Rites: The Return of Sebastian Vasilis.” She is very pretty and fits the ethnicity of her character as she is part Japanese and Caucasian. The cast of this movie is very diverse. We have just as many female protagonists and antagonists as male. It’s a fun story and in production now. Visit the Facebook pages for “Karl Vincent Vampire Hunter” and “Last Rites: The Return of Sebastian Vasilis” for full information. From Crisp Film Works.
