|Personal History||Kat grew up in a town where both Union and landowners lived and worked in harmony. Her parents had the opportunity to send her to good schools and did because her father worked for the Union fleet yards. Her mother worked with her grandparents on the farm and it was a relatively stable life. Kat worked hard in her studies cause she had a reputation to maintain and live by.
At the age of 15 her life took off and she became the talk of the school. By now she could drink most of the boys under the tables and still walk a straight line. Kat could hold her booze but not her Irish temper. She got into trouble more than once and ended up being detained by the police for questioning. She got off lightly this time but her temper had not changed for the better.
By the time she entered the Academy she had a rap sheet because of that bloody temper. Trying to control her temper was a joke but with help from one of her professors she found she could control it and did. Now she could focus on her studies and improve her grades which she did quickly. Passing her courses, she graduated in the top 10% of her class.
Kat got the Assistant CEO spot on the USS Tiger real quick and just as fast the Tiger was sent on a mission to the outer rim just before you get to Krill space. For the next 4 years her life was full of adventure and fun times and good friends.
Then the shit hit the fan. The XO was transferred and the new one was no bargain either. Not long after that the CO was arrested for something he did not do and a new CO came onboard. Between the CO and XO life became miserable for all. It didn't take long for Kat's temper to blow up. She was livid on this occasion and the CO ordered her to shut down the stardrive without dropping back to normal drive. Had she done this, the stardrive would have been damaged and out near the Krill border it would not be good, so she decked him and brought the ship out of stardrive the proper way. That was the end of her career on the Tiger and fast. She found herself transferred to Mining Colony 42 as CEO, something she was not sure she would enjoy but a job was a job.
|Service Record||Graduated from the Academy assigned to USS Tiger as Assistant CEO 4 years. Transferred to Mining Colony 42 as CEO.
