Catalina was born in Madrid Spain, to Kane Liafador and an unknown woman. Kane took the Cat from her mother at a young age hoping to keep her away from Ziccarra Liafador and the Red Cardinals. Misfortune fell upon him when Cat realized she was related to La Malaguena, her interesting having grown substantially; Kane sent her to live with a friend in Belize.
This did not stop Ziccarra as she had her Cardinals meet with her young niece and train her in her ways. Catalina is responsible for hundreds of deaths in Belize and is credited for setting up a Cardinal Stronghold there. She is a big conspirator in the “Liafador Legacy Plan, which is to be initiated in New York City”
Catalina commands the Shadow Guard; they are a specialized group of Cardinals who were genetically altered to master the dark forces much like herself.
Fall from graceAfter being "infected" by Y intercept and raped; Catalina was forced back to Belize by her father. Once there she learned Ziccarra had stripped the control of the Black Cardinal from her. Vowing revenge Catalina, met with Isabella Marisol; and persuaded her to overthrow Z as the Queen of the Cardinals; on the grounds that Z would not be interested, once she turned Venezuela into a safe haven. Since losing her Cardinals; she has been hosting multiple award shows under the name Katherine Lynn.

Mind-Set - is a form of hypnotism that requires extreme concentration and focus. It is perhaps the most powerful and dangerous of the Cardinal secrets, granting a warrior unshakable resolve and tenacity. The Mind-Set will cause a warrior to ignore pain and fear, and has proven capable of casting off the effects of brainwashing.
Cloak of the Chameleon - using extreme physical control, the Cloak of the Chameleon alters breathing and circulatory patterns, in order to perfectly mimic the sounds of another person.
The Ear That Sees - is an exercise that concentrates hearing, to compensate for loss of sight and allows a warrior to identify a foe through sound alone, with cues such as heartbeat, the sound of cloth against cloth, and the patterns of breathing and other movement.
The Sleeping Phoenix - technique mimics death, by exerting extreme physical control over involuntary bodily processes. It has proven valuable in fooling enemies, and in extending survival, such as when a Cardinal grandmaster used the technique to preserve his life, after the being stabbed by a Ronin shinobi.
The Blind Sword - a lesser sword fighting technique that allows the practitioner to defend them self in no visibility conditions, consisting in just extending the sword using its scabbard for touch and compensate loss of sight.
