Kathie Lee Balo with Smokey.

Kat's rifle.


Kathie Lee is a 21-year-old woman from Dallas,Texas, about 5'6" tall and weighing 155#, with brown hair and blue eyes. Her Texas accent and attitude are obvious, as is the fact that she's one of the rare cowgirls. 

Kathie Lee prefers to dress as she does on the ranch - in trousers and a long-sleeved shirt, but is with difficulty persuaded to accept the social mores and don a dress when in Society. 

Background and Personality

Kathie Lee is usually bubbly, effervescent, and outspoken, with little patience or regard for the rules of Polite Society. A little rough-hewn. she sometimes must be reminded that the streets of large cities are not the places to carry weapons openly. However, she has a good heart, and her teasing, if a little disconcerting to some, is kindly meant.


Kathie Lee's father owns the xxxx Ranch near Dallas, Texas, and indulged his only daughter's wish to spend her time riding the range rather than learning to mind the house. She soon found her father's ranch to be confining, and hired on with another family, with a tacit understanding between Kathie's father and the other rancher, a Mr. Sanders. After several years, she fell in love with the rancher's son, and they were married.
