Hot and Cold

Natha Kath was a vaguely humanoid conglomeration of magma and ice with something resembling a toaster attached to one 'arm'. Being formed directly from material deep underground, possibly from another plane of existence altogether, she searched for an activity to use up excess energy, settling on a kickball league. While this league ended up being for Blaseball instead, it provided her a space to feel more connected to the residents of the land she originated from. Natha quickly got along with the rest of the Tacos due to being spunky, fiery, and fun to be around, with teammates jokingly describing her to the press as “cool”, “chill”, and other low-temperature based adjectives.

She was enthusiastic about multiverse theory, and would often talk about the idea of alternate versions of herself, theorizing that there may be Nathas associated with other elements somewhere out there in the multiverse. Unfortunately, she did not live long enough to see Los Angeli split into infinite dimensions, where these versions of her most definitely exist. However, no alternate Nathas have been found by the Tacos.

Natha also had the ability to control the temperature of the toaster arm, an ability possibly related to her Fire blood type and general magma-esque construction. Due to the laws of thermodynamics, it is technically impossible to simply make things cold, but Natha circumvented this with something that she called the Hot Storage, a compartment that heat could be stored in to warm other things up later. This temperature control allowed her to do an assortment of things, such as toast bread, warm up her teammates' coffee, keep her own Cold Brews cold, toast toast, and pitch her signature Hot Pitch, which completely burnt out before reaching the plate and ultimately counted as a ball.

As she would learn the hard way, though, the Hot Storage had its limits. On Season 3, Day 16, a rogue umpire attempted to incinerate teammate Moses Mason (then Moses Simmons). The two were close friends, due to their similar nature of element-based construction, with Moses being made of concrete from the roads of Los Angeles. Activating her Hot Storage to protect them, Natha got in the way of the Ump’s fire. While it kept Moses safe, it was too much heat for her to absorb. Despite her best efforts, Natha was incinerated. The ice that solidified her melted, and the magma spread through the field and back into the ground.

The Hot Storage compartment’s backpack-like structure itself was destroyed in Natha’s incineration, but the toaster-like contraption that she used to do most of the actual heating and cooling of things remained mostly intact, albeit badly damaged. Despite its damage, it retained the ability to heat things up, allowing it to be used as a portable toaster. Because of that, her personal ILB records were misclassified to say that she was a toaster.
