Catherine was a detective who witnessed her mother's murder years ago. she was saved by a beastly looking man. 9 years later, a case led her to discover Vincent, an ex-soldier who was supposedly killed in military action, was actually alive. from his DNA, she found out that he wasn't fully human. but after getting to know him personally, she started to find out more about her mother's murder and how Vincent was linked to it. Vincent was one of the enlisted soldier signed up for the Muirfield project, where else her mother was the scientist that came out with the vaccine to create soldiers with superhuman abilities.
the very idea of seeing a beast outside Disney movies was alluring. Catherine at first sight, was quite an eye-candy to look at, but along the way, her persistent attitude started to make her an annoying character, especially the way she seemed to throw herself at Vincent despite his reluctance to get involved. fortunately for her, Vincent finally gave up fighting her attraction and decided to fall for her, which made things even more delicious, especially when one of Catherine's colleagues, Evan, also felt an attraction towards Catherine. the love triangle barely had time to blossom when Evan started to investigate the DNA he came across when being rescued by the Beast. to stir things up even more, Vincent's ex-girlfriend started taking part after seeing him paying Catherine a visit in the hospital and found out that he wasn't exactly dead. the series started out being slightly frustrating to watch as we saw it traversed down the expected path, but when more casts were added, it turned entertaining and worth the wait.
