Kit Weston is a former circus acrobat who was taken in by Linda Turner after the villain Fire Bug burned down his circus tent, killing his parents. It wasn't long before he realized that his guardian was secretly the Black Cat. When he helped her defeat the intruders who broke into her house, she allowed him to become her sidekick, the Black Kitten. 

After helping Linda Turner by killing the Crimson Raider, she rewarded him by giving Kit the last gold coin from the cursed pirate's treasure. As the Crimson Raider was cursed to roam the earth until an honest man receieved his treasure, it can be inferred that Kit Weston is pure of heart, and destined to use this coin for the betterment of mankind.
