Character Biography

At 4 feet 0 inches Catt is short for a Catian. Most Caitan’s most are tall and willowy averaging 6 feet for both genders. She is also, pearl white furred, unlike the usual savanna tan and brown of most Caitans, which causes her some distress as her longer than normal fur contrasts with almost everything. Dispite her actual age she looks like a pre teen to those who are familiar with Catians enough to tell. She is older than most of her graduating class but she looks younger. This is due to malnutrician, toxic exposure and genetic tampering by Orions after she was rescued from the irradiated and toxic ruins of the failed colony where she lived. At the time of her rescue she was one of six survivors all children in there preteens.
McHenrys world was a marginal class M world rich in minerals. The mining colony was heavily dependant on hydroponics as the thin, cold atmosphere made the labor of dirt farming untenable. The colonys power systems were a pair of ancient reactors salvaged from the warp 1 colony colony ship the original colonists had arrived in prior to the founding of the Federation. It was the cataclysmic failure of one of these reactors that mildly irradiated and contaminated the entire colony. Cracks in the dome depressurised the colony killing most of the adult population instantly. Only the mining tunnels and hydroponics cavern retained a sustainable atmosphere. Only secondary power generation remained intact. A hodgepodge of solar power arrays and windmills built to supliment the declining output of the ancient power reactors.
Rescue was slow as the Federation casualties durinug the Dominion War rendered Starfleet unable to respond to internal problems. By the time a Federation ship arrived to investigate the colony had been out of contact for roughly four years. A Orion trader had found the colony and started rebuilding the facilities. Claiming the colony derelict and theirs by right of salvage. The surviving children were given medical treatment and pressed into service in the mines.
The arrival of the Federation ship led to high tensions and it was only after strained negociations and the colony itself being ceded to the Orion that the surviving children were released to the Federation.
Catt had suffered greatly during the years of chaos that followed the accident. At 12 standard years she was the oldest child survivor and had keep the other children safe and fed as well as possible. Forced to fight to access what food there was she lost all sence of normal civilized Caitan behavior. Her reintroduction into civilization was difficult. She required both a accellerated education and behavioral modification of a type that made Federation officials uncomfortable. Her clan matriarch refused to aknowlage Catt She has never set foot on Cait. Knows she is unwelcome there and has a fragile self esteem. She tries to be a perfect example of Caitan civility but this is often undermined by her instinct for survival, and tendency towards blunt honesty. Nobody is harder on Catt than Catt is on herself. She is unused to compliments and can’t help making some self depreciating remark if complimented.
The refusal to accept her left Catt clanless. A state that was reserved for only the worst offenders and criminals of Caitan society. As the Clan and the family are the cornerstones of a Caitans identity. Her imediate blood family being dead and the adopted siblings the human child survivors of the McHenrys colony sent to relatives or foster homes left her shy about forming attachments. The temporary nature of a assignment to a Cadet cruise has caused her to isolate herself from potential attachments.
