Timeline

Timeline:
* 2003: Born and Raised in Manhattan, NYC New York, to Publishing Magnate Derek Bishop and his wife Eleanor.

* 2010: Was awed by the Fantastic Four and their defeat of Dr. Doom. Heroes exist in the world and can help people.

* 2011: While Kate had to be necessity be pretty self sufficient due to her parents very busy schedules between her dad's publishing empire and her mother's vacations and charity work. Kate did get to spend time with her mom helping at soup kitchens and other charities. To blunt some of Kate's superhero fangirling her mom liked to say charity was how everyone, even normal people could help each other.

* 2012: Kate's mother is killed in Boulder Colorado while attending a Charity event on the eve of the Alien Invasion. Nine year old Kate mourns with her sister while her father, already estranged from his wife suddenly has to raise two daughters alone (with a lot of staff).

* 2015: Kate continued to volunteer at the soup kitchen her mother would take her too when she was younger. She ditched her driver and car service to cut through the park to walk home and ended up being mugged. While she was only cut lightly by the muggers knife when she tried and failed to run, the traumatic experience drove her to double down on her self defense classes.

* 2017: Undeterred when Doomsday broke the back of the Justice League and killed superman. To Kate it just proved that he was human like the rest of them and the way the world came together after he died for them. Well like her mom said even ordinary people can help each other and make the world better.

* 2018: The invasion engineered by Loki. Kate was directly caught on the front line along with her entire freshman class from her prep school. She was there when Hawkeye and the Avengers stopped the invading forces and literally saved her life from a Frost Giant. A normal person with a bow and no super powers became a founding member of the Avengers.

* 2018-2020: Kate set out to do what Hawkeye did, expanding her training from self-defense to weapons training. In the same time frame she started to secretly spend her father's money, which he has so much he hasn?t noticed, and get a costume and set of gear ready to debut as a hero.

Personality

Click to expand.

Dedicated:
Despite her belief that she needs to rely on herself, she is exceptionally caring about others and society. She wants to help people and do the right thing which is what has driven her down this road towards masked vigilantism and superheros. She is willing to push herself potentially too far to help other people even.

Headstrong:
From an early age, Kate was frequently lonely and became determined to rely only on herself. This led to her developing a very independent, blunt, and stubborn personality.

Skills

Click to expand.

Adept Swordswoman:
Trained extensively and talented in both fencing and martial art sword styles.

Gifted Markswoman:
She has an eye for this. Be it the signature archery she has decided to focus on or other weaponry she has a sharp eye and impeccable aim.

Master Archer:
Naturally gifted and honed to near perfection. Kate is on the road to becoming one of the world's absolute best archers.

Natural Athlete:
She is blessed with a natural athleticism that supports her vigilante/superhero pursuits. She has to work out, train, and eat right but she is operating at the peak considering her age and humanity.

Socialite:
From a young age Kate has had proper manners drilled into her, and has spent a lot of time among others who are either movers and shakers, or just are from old money. As such she not only knows how to do such socially acceptable things as ride a horse and can tell you the proper utensil to use at specific points in a fancy dinner.

Talented Martial Artist:
She has been trained in self-defense, and is skilled in boxing, jiu jitsu, and other forms of unarmed combat.

Trained Musician:
She can play the cello and has been taking lessons and practicing it since she was a very young child.

Resources

Bishop Empire:
Kate is the youngest daughter of wealthy publishing magnate, Derek Bishop. She comes from money and the connections that come with the family ties.

Costume:
Kate's costume is one of her own designs and actually is a form of lightweight body armor. It protects her from small arms fire and blades. The material also helps absorb energy from hand-to-hand fighting. The forearms and shins are reenforced to assist in striking. Her boots are steel-toed. In addition, she tends to carry a second pair of 'sunglasses' that actually are a very expensive high end night vision system.

Weaponry:
She had most of them designed, styled, and customized based on various Avenger's weapons.

Escrima sticks are very similar to Mockingbird's battle batons.

Sword based off swordman's and is a lightweight alloy blade that works well with various martial arts and fencing styles.

WonderBow was a group project of the Titans. Troia provided a Themyscira bow for the materials (Maned Bull, Hippogriph, Unicorn, and Ironwood). Caitlin Fairchild provided the material sciences and construction weaving carbon fiber, titanium alloys, and other materials with the Themyscira parts. Kara Danvers provided a finishing of the materials once combined with Kryptonian molecular manipulation technologies to merge the varied materials in a way that makes the bow pull like a 70lb draw and like a 300lb draw. WonderBow is a work of science and magical art and truly one of a kind.

Quiver System was the brainchild of Victor Stone taking the form of a two part system. The quivers top can hold a maximized amount of shafts with fletchings which looks very normal. The base unit though that can be popped on and off hold a wide variety of trick arrow heads. Most of the time a set series of payload heads are attached to the shafts, but thanks to a retro looking wrist dial that matches her outfit, they can be hot swapped out for different payloads in the base on the fly for maximum versatility. Very clever and the only upgrade from here would be a nanite fabricator quiver.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Headstrong:
To say that Kate can be a little 'single-minded' at times is an understatement. At times she can be so focused on one single thing, usually as part of her effort to make the world a better place. As such she can and does tend to push herself too far, and is more than willing to sacrifice almost anything to do what she can do what she feels she has to do, no matter what the physical, mental, or emotional cost is to herself. Worse, sometimes this headstrong nature can lead to others she is close to to be unintentionally hurt, which in turn is worse for Kate since she is willing to accept what she does to herself, but hates the fact that what she does might hurt those around her.

Human:
Kate isn't superhuman. She can be hurt. She can be killed. She doesn't regenerate. She doesn't have nine lives. That doesn't stop her but it does mean she is at more risk than a lot of heroes.

Limited Ammo:
Much like Hawkeye whom she patterned herself after the quiver of arrows she carries can only carry so many. She offsets this by having other weapons on her person of course but she is best with a weapon with a limited number of shots.

Trauma:
She is haunted by her past even if she stubbornly only admits it to herself and her therapist. The loss of her mother at a young age. The mugging and injury in central park. Her distant father. These have all served to further isolate her from people around her even as she strikes out to try to make the world better.
