Katu's life didn't have a very happy beginning. Born into poverty, he was his parents' third and last child. What was more, he was unwanted. Smaller and frailer than his siblings, he wasn't able to contribute much to the family farm. This led to many brutal beatings from both his father and mother, neither of whom bothered to hide their contempt of him.
To cope with his family's abuse, Katu withdrew into himself and discovered a host of magical abilities. Thereafter, in his adolescence, Katu ran away and never looked back. After a long journey, he found himself in more modern, bustling cities, where he used his magic to his advantage as a street performer. His talents eventually landed him in the court of a Lord, from whom he earned a tidy living. It wasn't to last, however, for Katu's restlessness took him elsewhere, and he has traveled endlessly ever since.
Overconfident and sometimes downright cocky, Katu has a knack for causing trouble. An unapologetic trickster, he never takes anything too seriously if he can help it. This is, however, due in large part to his troubled upbringing. Humor and recklessness are his coping methods in an unforgiving world.
