- “Never fear, I'm the Rocketeer!”
- ―Kit's cry
Kathrine "Kit" Secord (also known as "The Rocketeer") is the main protagonist of the Disney Junior animated series, The Rocketeer. On her seventh birthday, she receives a surprise package, revealing she is next in line to become the Rocketeer, a legendary superhero who has the ability to fly with the help of a rocket-powered jet pack. Armed with her cool new gear and secret identity, Kit is ready to take flight and save the day with her gadget-minded best friend, Tesh, and airplane mechanic, Grandpa Ambrose, who join her on her epic adventures.
Kit is a little girl around seven years of age. She has green eyes, tan skin, and brown hair tied in pigtails. Her Rocketeer outfit includes a purple lever pilot's jacket, and grey pants with knee pads. She wears dark grey boots tied with purple laces, and gloves. She wears her rocket pack on her back and a streamlined helmet, which features a special fin on the top. Around her neck Kit wears a silver airplane pendant.
Powers and Abilities
- Rocket Pack: Like the previous Rocketeer, Kit uses a twin rocket-powered jet pack that allows her to fly like a rocket. It is controlled by two throttles, fitted to her gloves, and her helmet works as a rudder to help her steer. The rocket pack is known to be difficult to control, and can sometimes conk out unexpectedly.
- In early news postings, she was called Kit Seacourt. Her last name indicates that she's in some way related to Cliff Secord.
