Katsumi first appears in Volume 3 as a mercenary to the Kingdom and enemy to Loto. Later, it is revealed she is attempting to overthrow the Kingdom’s rule over her tribe’s land. Her father, the leader of the sheep herding Oota, apparently died during the assimilation period. Bitter and homeless, Katsumi trains her mind and body in Shangri-La in hopes of reclaiming her lost lands.
Katsumi is harsh and critical, especially towards Loto, for the Oota and the Veruki were never allies. She is unsentimental, cold, and extremely focused, unlike Loto who always manages to find joy wherever she goes. Devoted and religious, Katsumi grows frustrated with herself in her repeated attempts at finding inner peace.
