Working at a local comic shop in Detroit, Katie was one day forced to grab two vampblades, which she thought to be replicas, to defend herself from criminals who had just shot the comic shop owner. As soon as she grabbed the vampblades, she threw up black goo and a chain, which latched unto her and transformed her into a customed vigilante. Thinking back to the old '90s local indie bad girl comic that she loved, Katie choose the name Vampblade for herself.
