Kit, believing her beats to be superior to Jax, challenges Jax to a DJ battle in which only original music can be used. She is winning the battle, but is exposed by Jax as using a DJ Diamondmind which every believes is plagiarism. Seeing as this track was used for her audition, Kit is expelled. Kit inadvertently reveals to Jax that she is Diamondmind and with Jax and Scarlett's help is able to stay at the school.



Kit comes off to be a little rude, bossy, and a little sarcastic at times. Though she is often seen being an great friend to Denzel.

Kit admits that she does love Scarlett and shouldn't take a detective to figure out that they are siblings because they both have the same last name.[8] Scarlett says that not only does Kit make her songs better, but Scarlett as a person better too and they if Kit got expelled it would be a big loss for Keaton, Scarlett, and she would really miss Kit.
