Ring the bell! Coming to the booth, from Austin, Texas, weighing in at (an undisclosed weight, probably less than your waifu collection) pounds, It’s Caitlynn French! Caitlynn is fairly new to the scene, having debuted in 2012 as Qumola from Book of Bantorra. She’s ran the ropes and trained hard to conquer roles such as Shiro (No Game No Life), Chris (Cross Ange), Hana Isuzu (Girls und Panzer), Matsurika Shinouji (Maria-Holic, Maria-Holic Alive), Tina Sprout (Black Bullet), Mei Tachibana (Say “I love you”), Mio and Midori Nishizono (Little Busters, Little Busters Refrain), Sakura Inami (Beyond the Boundary), Ai Astin (Sunday Without God) and Miyu Edelfelt (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya & 2Wei).
Caitlynn recuperates from her time in the booth by playing video games, MMOs, and watching professional wrestling. She goes through grueling vocal conditioning playing tabletop roleplaying games, and screaming obscenities at the TV during Monday Night RAW. She likes to keep her life simple but unique. Ever changing hair dye, superhero capes, blacklight paint, and yoga pants are all just routine parts of life. At the end of the day she likes to wind down with a good nightly read of the Necronomicon. It is unconfirmed, but highly suspected, her blood is pure caffeinated Pepsi.
