Chloe King is just your average, quirky 16 year-old trying to navigate through high school. Except for this one little thing. It turns out she’s a descendant of the Mai — an ancient race that hails from the Bastet, and possesses cat-like abilities/powers. Did I also mention that she has nine lives and is the Uniter of the Mai to protect them from human assassins and she had no idea until her 16th birthday? Cat powers are probably pretty awesome until you learn that any (human) boy you kiss will probably die. Chloe learns of her fate through two Mai who have been watching her at school: Alec and Jasmine. Naturally, she’s a little shocked by the revelation. And then there’s Brian, her new crush, whose Dad somehow is associated with the Rezza Capital (Mai enemies I’m guessing) and has hired someone to make sure Chloe King dies (nine times to make it stick of course). There’s a lot of mythology in one premiere, I know, but it’s important in order to set up what’s to come.
