I know you love me. It doesn't change the fact that you're a fucking bitch!
―Cate Dunlap

She harbors strong hatred towards to Supes, deeming them "Dangerous Animals" and secretly developing a virus via the hands of Edison Cardosa as a means of eradicating Supes. Her motherly manners are means to manipulate students, especially those who have childhood traumas such as Marie Moreau and Cate Dunlap.
