*** 2387 Nanite infestation occurrence which awakened the Ka'bu DNA within Kathleen. The Ka'bu DNA ultimately became dominant, transforming Kathleen into a full-blood Ka'bu. Her mother is a Ka'bu that settled on Earth as a small group that tired of traveling.***

Kathleen grew up the child of and Engineer (Father) and a Physician (Mother). She stood above her classmates, and her family just knew that she would be a shining star. She proved them to be right, earning dual degrees in both her undergrad and graduate work...finishing at the top of her class in each. But her experience on the Liberator changed her for life, and took her down a path that alienated her from her family...a split which still exists to this date. Her parents are both strong believer in peaceful resolution of any conflicts, and to them...especially her father, she had turned into "Just another warmonger". It has been 5 years since she last visited her family, and that visit was only memorable for how badly it went. Her sister and brother-in-law have attempted to bring them close again as a family, but have not met with any success.
