Pinning this young woman down is a challenge. She's evidently not city folk; she speaks seldom, explains even less, and seems more at home in the wilds of Filgaia than anywhere near inns, markets and homes. Even her ethnicity is difficult to actually place. Wandering Filgaia as a Drifter, she brings with her an abiding faith in the Guardians of the land, and the ability to call upon a particular spirit to aid her. But while she has a certain rapport with the natural world and seems sometimes to understand the ways of beasts and monsters, she nevertheless goes through the world alone and with few close friends, and fewer still who understand who Catenna is and why she's chosen a path beneath a lonely moon.

Background

Catenna is highly unusual among the Zortroa Kinship in that she adheres to religious traditions similar to those of the Ellurian Baskar, including a version of the Heritor tradition utilized by the Fereshte of northern Elru. These traditions seem to have descended specifically through the maternal line of her family: Her mother, Maurea, is an inferior beastmaster but a dedicated Zoa Priestess - likely the only one among the Zortroa, to Catenna's knowledge. She passed her Medium down to Catenna, who was favoured because she was born beneath the light of a full moon.

Catenna is the fifth of seven siblings: In order, they are Alba, Laccoas, Riima, Vallis, Catenna, Sinea and Terae. Her mother had won the heart of the warrior Cientas - or really, more caught his eye than anything, though he eventually grew frustrated with her devotion to the Guardian religion, drawing fault lines through the family. The religion drew fault lines through Catenna's family: She was effectively her mother's favourite and learned much of the Guardians and of Celesdue, lessons to which she took readily, while her brothers and sisters resented that favouritism and became traditional Zortroan beastmasters. By the time Catenna was eight, she was consistently teased and tormented by her siblings because while they had cool imps and wolf pups and bears as familiars, all Catenna had was a baby screech owl who came around sometimes to hoot at her. The taunts and jibes undermined her confidence. While her mother insisted that these things took time and she'd learn someday, Catenna began to view herself as somehow flawed - as if she were worse than her siblings and undeserving of her mother's special attention and shamanistic education.

At some point in her childhood, Catenna received the Stone Moon Medium owned by her mother and was inducted in her own right as a Zoa Priestess.

In the broader region of Elesius, Zortroa are viewed by more urbanized people - that is, Elesians - as subhuman animals no better than the beasts they roll with. They're known in turn as mercenaries and savage hunters, selling their services often as Drifters and emerging in parts of Elesius where war and strife still dominate. This lifestyle did not suit Catenna; when she was old enough, she and her owl set off to the north, though not before a vituperative argument with her father and siblings which effectively burned her bridge behind her.

Catenna ventured for some time in the north of Elru, primarily encountering various hazards in the Veruni Control Zone and making her way for a time to some of the surviving centres in the far north. During the course of these adventures, her owl companion was killed, never being suited for combat in the first place.

The loss of her familiar evidently instilled in Catenna a sense that there was nothing in Elru for her anymore but empty wasteland, Strangers/Veruni and loneliness. Seeking to get as far away from the empty continent and her own people as possible, she returned to Elesius - reluctantly - and arranged passage on a ship bound for Port Timney, where she arrived in 499.

Ignas

Record of her in the region only begins in late 499, starting in roughly Port Timney. She brought a small bounty upon herself in some quarters after robbing a merchant of his dried meat, evidently feeling that the merchant had it coming.

With no real goal in life other than to find a place for herself, Catenna soon arrived in Adlehyde, where she spent the first few months of her life drifting in and out of the circles of acquaintance of several other Drifters. Against her own wishes, she'd slipped into a life not unlike the lives of the more mercenary Zortroa, except she got there without the benefit of a familiar or a family to support her. The course of her travels drew her into various friendships, among them a woman named Riesenlied, to whom she grew quite fond.

That friendship promptly exploded in her face when it turned out Riesenlied was a Metal Demon, appearing with the other Demons in the destructive assault on Adlehyde. Catenna found herself forced to raise a hand against someone she cared for, yet who had betrayed her. The fighting and dying left her deeply discouraged, but she retreated into her faith to find some solace.

In the aftermath of the Battle of Adlehyde, Catenna took time at the memorial service to comfort Jacqueline Barber, who invited her along on her northward travels. With nothing left in Adlehyde for her (if ever there was anything), Catenna agreed. These travels brought her into the orbit of Cyre H. Lorentz, a Baskar of Beastman attribute, who immediately flirted with her. Unused to being treated that way, Catenna chafed a little at the attention at first. But the two would steadily grow closer with time.

The journeys took Jay, Catenna and their little group northward to Lacour. There, the group received the name CaraKin - short for Caravan Kinship. The 'Kinship' in there was a Catenna suggestion that ultimately won out over 'Jay's Baes.' CaraKin lingered for a time as a team member won the Lacour Tournament of Arms, but soon enough, word came of the discovery of a Guardian Temple in the badlands.

Catenna joined CaraKin in challenging the Guardian Temple, a challenge which came even as the Metal Demons launched an assault on it. Herself and Cyre battled Berserk at the temple gates before delving into the structure itself. There, they encountered the Guardians themselves, who tested them - a test they could not pass - before tasking them with preventing Mother, the goddess of the Metal Demons. In the depths of the Temple, Catenna was further tried by Celesdue personally, the Moon Guardian teaching Catenna a valuable lesson in humility and patience by forcing her to sit alone for months in the space of ten seconds and lose all hope and expectations of Celesdue giving her the backpatting she hoped for before the Guardian finally appeared once Catenna had given up and lost all expectations.

A chastised Catenna fled the Temple with her companions, but in the course of her escape was captured by Kislev and locked up at a military outpost alongside Asteroid the Kid and a woman named Kaguya. While the other two managed to escape, Catenna found herself struggling to do so without her Mediums, and it took CaraKin and Astie riding to the rescue to break her out. The group escaped with several Kislevi Gears before moving on to adventures in Aveh and Kislev.

The Statues and the Owlet

Catenna was among those tasked by Elder Halle with pursuing the Guardian Statues. Given a Sealing Rod and a ritual, Catenna struck out to seach for the Statues, taking part in the sealing of several of them. These quests brought her deeper into the lives of Astie and Kaguya, the former being revealed as Lydia Seren behind her Rigdobrite head, the latter outing herself as Veruni in her successful bid to obliterate a Statue. But this time also brought her closer to Cyre and took her relationship with him deeper into the bounds of love, when she joined him in defending his home village of Wehaca and the Statue within from a Malevolent plot by the Trial Knight.

Throughout it all, Catenna continued to experience sightings of an enormous white bird overhead, shaped basically like a massive snowy owl. Following the clues to villages around the Badlands, Catenna came to learn about the Great White Bird of the Badlands, a monstrous creature which preyed upon innocent villagers in the area, particularly children. Eventually this search brought them to the Bird itself - and Catenna quickly identified it as not just a monster, but a Totem Owl of Celesdue, a creature essentially of the Guardian, but one horrifically twisted and warped by the Demon King's Malice.

Determined to try and purify the Great White Bird, Catenna led CaraKin to the tower known as the Titan's Roost, where the Bird dwelled. The group ascended the Tower and met the Bird in battle. But efforts to cleanse it proved futile, and the Bird was ultimately killed in a bid to end its suffering. However, a single Egg remained, which Catenna took custody of and began to care for like her own child.

That Egg would travel with her for the next two months, until CaraKin discovered the ancient Elw ruin known as Lost July. Once again Catenna found herself battling Berserk before the ruins of a Statue, the Quarter Knight having grafted a modified Sealing Rod to his arm to enable him to destroy sealed Statues. During the battle, Catenna was grievously wounded - but at that point, the Egg hatched, revealing a small white Owlet with no sign of pollution by the Demon King's Malice. Determined to preserve that tiny life, Catenna threw everything she could at Berserk and assisted a bevy of fellow Drifters in killing him once and for all.

The Moon and the Sphere

In the aftermath of the battle in Lost July, Catenna found herself on Lunar, separated from the Caravan Kinship. She was soon drawn into the service of an illegal performance troupe, a group of dancers led by the caravan-master Drago. Catenna chose to integrate herself there in the hopes her travels would bring her across the path of Jay and others, using her ritual dancing skills to try and pass as a fan dancer. Soon enough, CaraKin found her anyway, and all was well, though Catenna would return to Drago's caravan periodically to gather information.

Catenna's experience on Lunar did little to deepen her understanding of the relationship between Althena and Celesdue - but she could feel the Moon Guardian's power all the more clearly there. This eventually led her to locate the Statue of Celesdue, unsurprisingly on Lunar despite nobody on that world knowing who Celesdue actually is. The Statue was menaced by Mauri, the militant Red Priestess of Althena, who nearly destroyed it but for the intervention of several Drifters and Lunarian allies. Catenna was ultimately able to seal it, though several of her friends were badly wounded in the process.

After months of Lunar adventuring and a sojourn through the lost labyrinth known as Uzda il-Jam, Catenna found herself in Azado during the attack of Sin, a creature so horrific that even Celesdue herself was terrified. Catenna did what she could to help others prevent the destruction of the city, but the immense Clysmian was too powerful to be denied, and Catenna found herself lost in the tunnels beneath the city with CaraKin. But those sojourns brought them to a transporter, with which they returned to Lunar - in the middle of a second Metal Demon bid for Adlehyde.

Catenna escaped that without major engagements, but found that the worst had happened: Mother had awoken. Her contact with Celesdue was deeply dampened, plunging the Owlet into a deep, near-fatal lethargy.

Much of Catenna's time from here on in was divided between caring for the ailing Owlet and searching for the Photosphere, intent on defeating Mother. Eventually the CaraKin was able to cross the ocean to Elru, where Catenna acted as best she could as a local guide, drawing on her knowledge of the continent. It did not take long, however, for her to run into something she did not want: Her sister Riima ventured far from the Zortroan lands to confront Catenna upon finding her still alive, promptly mocking her beliefs and insulting the Owlet when it became clear Catenna would not abandon her faith and come home. Catenna promptly told her sister where to stick it.

The night after the incident, however, the Owlet escaped the CaraKin and went off on her own into the Arctican winter. Pursuing the sick bird, Catenna discovered the Owlet had found an ancient Temple of Celesdue buried beneath a mountain. Catenna and her friends defeated an ancient Metal Beast long sealed in there, opening the way to a sanctum of the Moon Priestess herself - and there, Celesdue returned the fully-grown Owlet to Catenna, introducing her as Saarda-Shanta and sending her back with the Silver Moon Medium. The entire Owlet experience had been a test of Catenna's faith and character, possibly even with Celesdue watching it all through the Owlet's eyes, and she had passed it sufficiently for the Moon Guardian to choose her as her champion.

Thus empowered, Catenna joined in the assault on the Photosphere. Her new Silver Medium abilities, and the power of Saarda-Shanta to spontaneously "grow up" and join the fight, proved crucial in disabling Mother and making her ultimate destruction possible. The battle was won: Mother was defeated, and one threat was removed from the world.

Powers and Abilities

Catenna's sprite in Spira.
  • Silver Moon Medium: Catenna was raised as a dedicated Zoa Priestess in the service of Celesdue, but found herself in possession of the Silver Moon Medium after discovering a lost temple in the depths of Elru. The Medium grants her a far stronger connection to the Moon Guardian than most and enables powerful Material summons and arcana.
  • Sea Medium: Granted to her in the depths of the Guardian Temple, this new Medium gives Catenna the ability to tap into the powers of Lucadia, Guardian of the Sea, though it is an ability she has barely begun to explore. While her life has been devoted to Celesdue, the inextricable bond between the Moon and the tide makes this a fairly natural fit.
  • Beast Bond: The Zortroa, long driven off their land by the Kingdom of Elesius, broadly did not follow the path of the Baskar in communing with the Guardians, but instead developed the ability to bond and in some cases even merge with wild monsters. That said, Catenna is notably worse at this than virtually any other Zortroa and has virtually no ability to command beasts outside of her familiar, whose bond with her is more spiritual and rooted in love and care than is typical of Zortroan beastmasters' bonds with their creatures.
    • Saarda-Shanta: Otherwise known as the Owlet, or the Great Owl. Saarda-Shanta is a Totem Creature of Celesdue and is at least partly an embodiment of Celesdue's essence. The child of a Totem Bird driven mad by The Demon King's Malice, the Owlet was hatched from an egg saved by the Caravan Kinship and raised from vulnerability, but has since come into her own as Catenna's familiar, companion and friend.
  • Moonlight Archery: An accomplished bowhunter back with her home tribe, Catenna has taken to carrying a bow and arrows as her primary weapon. She doesn't have a specific style but has learned to combine her marksmanship with the agility she learned through her training in dance to inflict damage on her enemies.
  • Swordsplay: Catenna's secondary weapon is a simple, curved-grip shortsword she discovered in an old armoury in the Sacred Grounds of Linga. Restored by a blacksmith and set with a moonstone in the hilt, it's a basic weapon but useful enough at close-range combat.

Relationships

Sprite for C1A2/4.

<3

  • Cyre H. Lorentz: "We both understand what it is like to feel like we cannot live up to what was expected of us... we both know how it feels to leave behind everything that we love. Even though he is so carefree, there is a nobility to him... and more than that, there is so much about is that is the same. Perhaps it was fate, that he should be the one that I love...."

Dependents

  • Saarda-Shanta: "I am sorry I could not save her mother. That failure weighs on my heart... and it leaves me with an obligation. And yet, she has chosen to stay with me and contribute as best she can. Sometimes I wonder if there is truly any separation between she and the Lady of the Moon...."

CaraKin

  • Jacqueline Barber: "Jacqueline... no, Jay.... I am forever grateful to her for extending a hand to me when I was alone and full of doubt in a strange place... and I owe her a debt for saving my life when I had thrown it away in vain. Her heart is full of kindness, and she seems always to want to do what is right, even when it is hard for her. I could not ask for more in a friend."
  • Arleph Ardan: "In some ways he reminds me of Ethius with social skills. I am not sure why he does so. Perhaps it is that sense of... otherworldliness...?"
  • Carina Wynne: "She is an energetic one, but most clever in her own way. She seems to be a most worthy companion with a very unique skill, one I could certainly never master. I sometimes wonder if she is perhaps a little bit... too excited for her own good...."
  • Ethius Hesiod: "I feel I know so little about him. At times he seems a mute but reliable companion. And yet there are those flashes of madness, even a thirst for blood. What kind of man was he, that he is capable of such behaviour?"
  • Ivan: "In him I see shades of the life I could have led - that of a weapon born from the womb of mankind. If he has indeed chosen a different path, I owe it to him to help him find his way."
  • Kourin: "She is perhaps more willing to learn than I gave her credit for. Kourin... I wonder how she is bearing the anxieties of returning to a world she seems to despise...?"
  • Mariel: "A precious friend, and one whose wisdom is most valued, along with her kindness. To meet someone so gentle...."
  • Prissa: "Vivacious, clever and quite fun to be around. I'm starting to understand a little more about the world she comes from, and yet, in a way, I feel like I have much more to learn about her."
  • Shalune Amira: "I do not know her yet as well as I should. And yet... she seems to be quite a pleasant young woman, with skills I could never hope to match in mechanical matters. Her heart is kind. I like her."
  • Talia: "A good woman with a kind heart. She has kept Jacqueline safe and well in trying times. I am grateful to her."
  • Tesni Inoue: "She showed up out of the blue and has a strange ARM. Why ask why."

Friends and Acquaintances

  • Alisha Diphda: "It was a cucco, miss."
  • Avril Vent Fleur: "An interesting young woman with a rapport with the Guardians. Perhaps someone I should know better, for what manner of secrets she holds...."
  • Bart Fatima: "A competent enough man, though he seems to be one of those who lives for the apparent. That is fine. He handles himself well. I would travel with him again if need be."
  • Cecilia Adlehyde: "She is an interesting young woman, and seems curious about me for some reason. She seems to see things similarly to how I do."
  • Dean Stark: "He has an energy to him that I find very endearing."
  • Elena: "W-what is it about Granasian priestesses that seems to entice Cyre so?!"
  • Elhaym van Houten: "She seems like a nice young woman, and polite. Quiet, perhaps. But I appreciate quiet in people."
  • Fei Fong Wong: "He certainly seems to have a nobility to him, which I appreciate."
  • Ida Everstead-Rey: "She is a good woman, and I am glad she has found her way out of the shadows. Who knows what the future will hold for her."
  • Jean: "I had no idea she had such talents! Learning from her has expanded my life quite a bit. And I certainly feel more in shape...."
  • Josephine Lovelace: "A woman of considerable talent and competence. I like her."
  • Katyna Reidal: "An interesting Beastwoman from somewhere I do not know. She seems most curious but also quite pleasant in her ways. I like her."
  • Leon Albus: "He is a competent man and goes about his business effectively and without complaining. I can respect that, though less so his deficit of spiritual wisdom and blindness towards matters of faith and heritage. Perhaps he needs to learn."
  • Lily Keil: "She does not say much. Then again, neither do I. She is competent and clever, though. I would partner with her again, should the opportunity come up."
  • Lulu: "While she was forthcoming, she plays much close to the vest and hides much behind sharpness. In a way, that's something I understand and respect. With luck there's something I can do to support her charge."
  • Lunata Croze: "With luck, she will find her way."
  • Maya Schrodinger: "Were it not for her, I would have died in the sunken city...."
  • Morgan Newkirk: "I always feel like he is undressing me with his eyes whenever I run into him, and not in the way Cyre plays at it. It is slightly unsettling, but otherwise he seems competent enough."
  • Noeline: "I wish I knew her more than I do, and perhaps it is an indictment of me that I do not know her so well as Riesenlied. She seems in some way to be more... untouchable, perhaps is the word...?"
  • Riesenlied: "Riesenlied... to think that a Metal Demon could be so loving a person, and so capable of going against the wishes of her fellows. If she can truly become compatible with this world, then I wish to help her find a way...."
  • Rosaline Calice: "There is a small part of me that worries that she is interested in Cyre... but to see that she has become a Hellion... could even someone so sweet and kind be consumed by that power...?"
  • Sephilia Lampbright: "One is sad to see her running free in the streets with her doll. But she seems kind enough, in that earnest manner that young people have."
  • Seraph Boudicca: "A helpful being with what appears to be a good heart. I should like to know her more. I feel a touch of kinship with her, in some ways."
  • Seraph Lanval: "Interesting, and less of a ragamuffin than he lets on...."
  • Tethelle Cirdian: "She has an energy to her, and her story feels similar to why I came to Ignas. I like her and trust her, and I treasure the rare times when I find myself traveling with her."
  • Vin Barrett: "An interesting man... one who walks with the Guardians as well, I think. Baskar, perhaps. He seems... playful. But solid enough."
  • Virginia Maxwell: "...She seems almost more childlike than young Sephilia."
  • Yuna: "She seems to be quite earnest and talented. With luck, she will overcome her trials."

Ambivalent

  • Elvis: "A less odious sort than many of the other Veruni... yet he seems to swing between approachable friend and likely nemesis. I do not quite understand him."
  • Marivel Armitage: "Insufferable. But she is trying to find her way to a good place, and we share many of the same goals. Knowing that helps, in intervals."
  • Matilda Whitehead: "Wasted promise. I am at least glad she chose Odessa over the Veruni."
  • Ryudo: "A horrible, unpleasant man who treats people poorly. While he may be an ally when the occasion arises, I find his attitude dismal and his contempt for my beliefs to be... sadly typical."
  • Vinsfeld Rhadamanthus: "One white conqueror is much the same as another...."
  • White Knight Leo: "To see part of this man's memories... he seems like a man with a very noble heart, who yet carries much pain and conflict with him. I could come to admire him, were his faith not so bent on conversion of the masses...."

F.O.E.

  • Ambrosius: "Perhaps there is more to him than I gave him credit for, though his ideal is anathema to this world.... If he plans to walk the path the other Veruni walk, then he is my foe, and that is all that matters."
  • Berserk: "A mindless brute who met the fate he deserved. I do not enjoy taking a life, but I am glad I could play a part in removing this one from among the living - and though I hesitate to pass such a harsh judgment, I do feel that nothing of value was lost in his demise. Good riddance."
  • Janus Cascade: "Just another mindless nihilist who places his short-term wealth over the continued existence of Filgaia. This world is better off without him."
  • K.K.: "Those who threaten the Guardians themselves will get what they deserve."
  • Kent Hauch: "He and his thugs seem more troublesome than most riff-raff. Perhaps I should have paid more attention...."
  • Krelian: "Another monster...."
  • Seraph Edna: "Using my boyfriend as a chaise lounge is not safe for child."
  • Parbody: "She is unpleasant. The mask is unnerving."
  • Seraph Ragnell: "Suffer."
  • Seraphita: "...Why is this rabbit trying to set me on fire, while also hugging me?"
  • Sin: "Obsession... this should not be."
  • Yarobeleedt: "It is easier to dislike this Metal Demon. I must guard against that tendency - that of basing my dislike on his appearance. But he shows none of the kindness and remorse that I have seen in Riesenlied and even some of the others. I have few qualms about going against him."
  • Zed: "Ugh!"

Sad Priestess in Snow

  • Kaguya: "I held back because I love you. I wished that you could have been a sister who could help build a bridge between our worlds. But I can't let my feelings for you stop me from standing between you and the evil that lies within your ambitions."
  • Lydia Seren: "We will see each other again. My precious star sister...."

Family

  • Riima: "All my life, she taunted and tortured me... is this truly what one should expect of one's older sister? She always seemed to loathe me worse than the others, and seemed to play the most mind games with me. I have met enemies who wish to kill me and enemies who hate what I stand for, but I have met nobody who seems to hate me like Riima does."
