In real life, the inspiration for the character of Kathana e'Marish'Chala was Katherine Grantham; an artist, responsible for the maps in Brokedown Palace and Yendi, as well as many fine drawings of Dragaeran animals and locations, based on Steven Brust's descriptions and feedback. 'Grantham' is her married name; she was previously known as Katherine Marschall.

Her work can be found at her Elfwood gallery.

She also did the cover and interior illustrations for the Steeldragon Press (first) edition of To Reign In Hell (by Steven, but not a Dragaera book, hence no article here).
