History: Kat enlisted in the USNC at age 17 in 2544. Kat signed up immediately for demolitions and engineering training, and found her training being put to use sooner than later. She first saw action at the Battle of Sargasso in the year 2446, assisting in taking out bridges while Covenant forces were moving over them. Kat was promoted after the battle to corporal and signed up for the Navy Special Weapons division. She went through several more months of harsh training and was redeployed across the galaxy, spending the next two years in some of the heavier combat situations. In 2549, Kat signed up for the ODST, spending several months in training before being immediately deployed to Paris IV.
Kat saw her first action as an ODST by hot dropping into the city. Further action took her across the front of the war, where Kat was promoted to Master Sargent. When the war finally ended, Kat immediately signed on again to fight the remnants of the Covenant Loyalists, putting her hard earned talents in explosives to use. When she was informed about the Spartan-IV program, she jumped at the chance to prove herself further. After the augmentation process, Kat was stationed at Cairo station, much to her chagrin.
