Kateryna’s Diaries

In sequential order:

Kateryna Tarranne – This Is Your Life!

Kateryna has not had the most…stable of lives. Her mother was a descendant of the great Navigator House of Benetek, while her father was one Tarranne, a Rogue Trader. Her mother served as the Rogue Trader Tarranne’s Navigator. The circumstances of her conception are unknown, but she was definitely born in a Navis Nobilite household. Following her birth she was separated from her mother, and knew nothing of her father. For reasons unknown the Novator allowed her to continue to grow and arranged for her to be educated, rather than having her quietly “disappeared”. Kateryna does not know why he would do this. More to the point, a large number of her relatives don’t know either. Names like “aberration”, “gene-thief”, “eyeless”, “mongrel” and “half-breed” were commonly applied to her, and were it not for the Novator’s command that she not be touched she is sure she would have “suffered an accident”.

Kateryna showed early aptitude for void-piloting, and when she of age was apprenticed into the Imperial Navy. Later released from service, she was given captaincy of a bulk-freighter operating under the auspices of Absolon Von Daark. Von Daark later invited her to a celebratory party, where Kateryna first met her erstwhile employer and his major-domo, the lugubrious Theopholus Gotti (Will). At the party, Von Daark revealed the name of her father as Tarranne, a somewhat infamous Rogue Trader of his acquaintance, who had long vanished into the Expanse. It was Van Daark who suggested that she adopt his name as her own suggesting it was a better fit for her temperament than Benatek and that Tarranne was “a name fit for an explorer!”. It was only months later, when Kateryna was summoned before the Rogue Trader again, that she fully understood what he meant by that. Her surname has previously brought suspicions to the Winterscale Family of Rogue Traders, and her mannerisms when in the presence of Navigators has also given her familial ties away to her own ship’s Navigator.

Despite being unwilling to talk to, or often even be near a Navigator, she does have a great respect for them – which perhaps stems from the knowledge of how their systems and Houses work. She has been known to speak to Navigators in certain circumstances, but the few conversations she has held have left her rather sheepish and keen to keep a low profile…at least for the next five minutes.

Considering her history, it seems strange that such a woman would put herself unnecessarily into harm’s way. However, given her track record on the Vulpis Nigerei, of…
- Partially being responsible for the crash-landing of a small craft onto the Prison planet of Malaziel, killing all the reinforcements that were on board, and the main crew barely escaping with their lives.
- Partially being responsible for the sentencing of the planet’s Governor to work on an acid mining planet.
- Getting drunk out of her mind whilst trying to extract information from people
- Deciding plugging her MIU Unit into an unmarked assasin’s Ornithopter was a good idea
- Jumping into a Diablodon’s mouth in the hopes of beating it up from the inside
- Entering a no-holds-barred brawling competition as the Vulpis Nigerei’s champion
- Plugging herself into a long-destroyed Archaeotech ship and “accidentally” losing concentration
…it is considered to not be the case. There are rumours that Kateryna is paranoid, but these have been dismissed as wild speculation from people who have no eyes or ears.

Kateryna has no knowledge of the whereabouts of either of her parents, but does now know their names.
