She volunteers at the soup kitchen in St. Denis with her brother Colin and always thinks about helping others. She is very determined to self-improve and can sometimes be overly idealistic or unrealistic about her goals. She puts a lot of pressure on herself to live up to the ideals that she sets for herself and can get burnt out easily when putting the needs of others before herself. She often raises money for charity when she can and tries to help people, sometimes putting them before herself. Cat is quite sensitive and she takes things to heart, she can be stubborn and also can hold grudges for a long time when her trust has been broken.

- Colin Carver
Catriona’s hero. Colin is Cat’s favourite sibling and she will always respect him and look up to him. As kids, he would always look out for her and they have a close bond. Cat wants to make Colin proud and live up to her childhood nickname “Can-do-Cat” and bring a can-do attitude to everything she tries. Colin pretty much raised Cat, looking out for her but helping her be independent too. Cat trusts Colin's judgement above all else and trusts that whatever he chooses to do, his heart will be in the right place.
Cat hopes that Colin can teach her some skills like smithing and hunting more. She hopes to do him proud by practicing each day. Colin is a determined, steady and humble figure in her life and she admires him for that.
If anyone disregards or disrespects Colin, especially in earshot of Cat, they will find her usually warm demeanour will turn into the form of a cold shoulder. Cat is stubborn and takes perceived insult very seriously when it comes to the reputation of her family. People will have to do a lot of legwork to build up trust again if they slight her by speaking bad about Colin. Colin has currently left the Crossing and Cat doesn't know of his whereabouts. She worries for him often and wishes she could find her way to him somehow.

Cat feels so deeply understood by Sophia and often asks people to look out for Sophia. She worries about Sophia's happiness and lot and tries very hard to show Soph that she cares.
