In the Penny Dreadful Novel:
Katarina is the daughter of Angus MacDonald, Laird of Glen Cairn in the Scottish Highlands. Raised between the estate and her father's digs, she has followed in his footsteps as an antiquarian. Born with the Sight, she has the ability to see and communicate with spirits - and they can be real pests! This has proven to be both an advantage and a disadvantage, given her interests.
She has 2 ghostly companions - Meredith, one of her childhood playmates, a cousin who died shortly after the execution of Mary Queen of Scots; and Anpuhotep, an ancient Egyptian scribe who followed her home after Laird Angus excavated his tomb. He wanted to see "wonders"; he has improved Katarina's command of ancient Egyptian as she has taught him English. Although he prefers to swear in Scots Gaelic, courtesy of Meredith.
Katarina keeps a series of journals, a project she calls "According to Anpuhotep": an English-ancient Egyptian dictionary and historical notes.
