KatherineTheGreat is the leader of the mysterious hacking group known as CypherPunk. She is a main character in the Kill Your Internet ARG.


Katherine was a child prodigy, gifted in computers and programming. She studied at Berkeley, where she developed an artificial intelligence she named Shahrazad. As Katherine became more proficient in coding, Shahrazad became sentient and self-aware. Soon, Katherine found herself at the mercy of the U.S. government, who demanded that Katherine hand Shahrazad over to them. Rather than risk her life's work being used in a morally ambiguous way, Katherine chose to destroy Shahrazad.

Years later, an antiquated version of Shahrazad that existed on Katherine's lost laptop returned to Katherine, as per her directives.
