Nobody knows what befell Katashi's parents; she was washed up on one of the countless Naga islands in a simple wicker basket with the sea, like the babe, as calm as a summer lake.
Rescued by the Pearl Priestesses, Katashi was adopted into their temple and raised as one of their own, her origins of little concern to her, for she never knew anything different.
Becoming an adept priestess of Shalassa, the Dragon of Water, Katashi first began to question the fate of her parents when she overheard a Human visitor suggesting they might have been slain by Lord Okane, Daimyo of Hashima Island. Determined to find out what really happened to her father and mother, Katashi left to find Okane, only to discoved he had since been defeated by Lord Hiroshi, the new Daimyo of Hashima.
To facilitate her investigation, she has hidden her true motives under a mask of obeisance and excellence, and has since risen highly in Hiroshi's army.
It was during one of her private forays into her troubled past that Katashi was captured by the pirate Changbo.
Katashi is a Flood Conjurer.
Katashi appears only in Might & Magic: Heroes VI.
