"Marriage is just a 'tradition', right? Seriously, who wants to be tied down? As long as two people are together, it's okay, right? It's best to be free, don't you think?"
— Catherine questioning the point of marriage

Catherine (キャサリン Kyasarin) is the titular character in the game Catherine, and a major character in the official novels Catherine: The Novel and Catherine: The Mysterious Tale of Rapunzel.

She is a carefree and enigmatic beauty who falls in love with Vincent Brooks at the Stray Sheep. She works as a video game developer at a technology company called Fowles Electronics.

In her free time, she seduces men and then kills them by dooming them to their nightmares. It is unknown if she is a rapist or a consensual succubus. Her mission is to help clear the world and human gene pool of unfaithful cheating men.

PersonalityEdit

Catherine is generally upbeat, cheerful, eccentric and bubbly. Catherine's initial physical appearance and personality are meant to mirror what Vincent is searching for: a free soul. Freedom defines her entire attitude and feelings towards life: she's impulsive and resists commitment. This is demonstrated by the fact that she works with Dumuzid to corral men into the Nightmares "on a whim". Despite being a succubus, Catherine isn't entirely cold-hearted -- she once told Jonny that she felt bad that he would probably begin having "nightmares". It is also difficult to label her as "evil" or "malevolent".

VincentCatherine

Catherine looks at Vincent.

Catherine's personality is almost the polar opposite of Katherine McBride's. She spends more time with Vincent as their relationship develops, neglecting her duties as a succubus. It's unclear if Catherine has a true interest in and feelings for Vincent, but given that she allows herself to be with him in certain endings and is upset when he attempts to leave her, it seems that a part of Catherine truly does love Vincent. She hates working and always asks Vincent when he's done with his job, although she views jobs and work as a necessary evil to maintain a functioning society. She is very uplifting, approving and supportive of Vincent and tells him he's fine just the way he is - a contrast to Katherine's berating, criticizing, scrutinizing and nagging attitude towards Vincent. Unlike Katherine, Catherine doesn't seem to mind Vincent's drinking and smoking habits. Catherine is more affectionate with Vincent, in contrast to Katherine.

CatherineAbusive

Catherine being physically abusive after Vincent breaks up with her for Katherine.

Catherine can be perceived as an emotionally, sexually, physically abusive, and manipulative girlfriend. Catherine is prone to having rapid swings of emotions - she's revealed to be rather emotional, experiencing rage one moment and joy the next. When Vincent breaks up with her on Day 7, her initial reaction is one of desperation; that, as long as she is #1 in his life, he may have another woman, even a child, in his life. Though this can be seen as a last play at manipulation, her reaction appears genuine. It quickly shifts to abusive when Vincent follows her into the Stray Sheep's bathroom and is physically assaulted, as she warns him of the dangers of breaking up with her and, thus, leaving her "protection".

CatherineHyper

Catherine excited for a horror movie date with Vincent.

Her true personality is evident in the Catherine True Ending and Catherine Good Ending, where her attraction to a chaotic Vincent is clear. During the Catherine Bad Ending, she shows nowhere near as much interest in him. This shows that, despite her base attraction to Vincent, Catherine seeks excitement above all else.

Catherine has a few hobbies, interests and quirks. Catherine tells Vincent she has a sweet tooth, enjoys horror movies, and playing video games with her father. In the novelization, Catherine works as a video game developer, showing that she has a creative side.

HistoryEdit

No details are given about her origin, other than that she is a succubus from the "Underworld" who is able to change her form to suit the ideal woman of a man, though she does have an antagonistic relationship with her overprotective father, Nergal, who is the Lord of the "Underworld".

She is focusing on Vincent's city for her marks because of her casual "employment" with Boss. Her appearance as an ideal woman to other men is completely different than when she appears to Vincent. Catherine has successfully targeted and seduced:

She has also once appeared to Jonny at an aquarium and tried to seduce him, taking a physical form similar to Katherine (Jonny has feelings for Katherine), and the feelings in Jonny's heart were enough to send him into the nightmares, even after he rejected her. Jonny is Catherine's only known failed target who has successfully resisted her.

CatherineEdit

Catherine-Header

Catherine and Vincent meet for the first time.

Catherine first appears at the Stray Sheep after Vincent's friends have gone home. She entices him with her refreshing mindset of freedom and an aversion to commitment, matching her personality and looks to be exactly what he's looking for. She goes home with him that night.

On Day 2, she wakes up next to him in bed and, after a brief talk, runs off for an urgent "dentist appointment" (with Steve). She meets him again at the Stray Sheep that same night and, again, wakes up with him, this time, telling him her name. Their affair continues.

It is heavily implied that she breaks up with Steve on Day 3 to spend more time with Vincent. Steve appears in a more frantic and paranoid state on 4-1 trying to find "her" again. The following day, he's able to track Vincent down and threatens him, desperate to get Catherine back. This makes it clear that Catherine broke up with Steve by telling him that she was seeing Vincent.

Talk

Catherine and Vincent talk.

Vincent confronts Catherine about the phone call he received from Steve Delhomme, demanding that they stop seeing each other, as Steve is Catherine's boyfriend. She denies this, saying he has the wrong Catherine.

A couple days afterwards, Vincent calls her to the Stray Sheep and breaks up with her. Though initially hurt and upset, after he follows her into the bathroom, she takes her anger and sadness out on him physically by beating him. He won't relent and ends up completely breaking things off, despite her protests.

Screenshot22

Catherine confronts Katherine.

Catherine appears shortly after that in Vincent's apartment, as he is welcoming Katherine in. After a heated exchange of insults between the two women in which Katherine angrily calls Catherine a pig, a bitch, and a whore and Catherine calmly calls Katherine extra-baggage, an old-granny, and pathetic and futile attempts of trying to order each other out of Vincent's room, Katherine, due to Vincent's betrayal and Catherine's constant insults of her worthlessness to Vincent and Catherine's superiority to Katherine, snaps with despair and moves over the kitchen sink searching for a kitchen knife while still facing Vincent and Catherine but to no avail as Catherine predicted this and took the knife in advance.

CatherineDies

Catherine bleeding all over Vincent's carpet.

Vincent attempts to calm down Katherine by telling her that he had already called off his affair with Catherine, causing Catherine to snap with rage and jealousy and Catherine blames Katherine for Vincent's confusion. Catherine claims that if Katherine went away, Vincent could finally be free and attempts to kill Katherine with the kitchen knife. Vincent tries to defend Katherine and is cut non-fatally in his right lower rib cage. As Katherine dashes over the coffee table to escape, Catherine grabs Katherine's hair, shoves her to the floor and a struggle begins. Catherine ends up impaling her abdomen while seemingly having the upper-hand on Katherine while they are both on the ground; this is the last time she's seen normally in the game (except in her endings), though she briefly returns as the 8th boss of Vincent's nightmares.

Catherine 4

Catherine's boss form in the cathedral.

Catherine is a boss in the one and only level of The Cathedral. She takes the form of a giant nude demonic version of herself with her skin peeling off; most especially on her left arm. Her mouth is exaggeratedly large, showing rows of sharp fangs. Her hair is identical to her human form. During the climb, Catherine constantly insults Katherine; she asks her "You can only get his attention by getting pregnant?" and says "You're just his dead weight!". At the same time, she tries to convince Vincent to forget Katherine.

Later on, Boss explains her existence as a succubus; that he employed her to help with The Great Trials. He explains that normal people cannot normally see her (Except Katherine, during the confrontation on the 8th night) and reassures Vincent that he will never see her again.

Catherine only appears in her own endings: Catherine True Ending, Catherine Good Ending, and Catherine Bad Ending.

The Trivia for Tonight.....Edit

Immoral

The Immoral Beast, a monster symbolizing Catherine.

Catherine ~ Stage 3-3 (Normal Gold EN Version)03:30

Catherine ~ Stage 3-3 (Normal Gold EN Version)

The Immoral Beast has appeared. It's the killer. Do not die.

Catherine ~ Stage 8-1 (Normal Gold EN Version)05:24

Catherine ~ Stage 8-1 (Normal Gold EN Version)

Catherine has appeared. It's the killer. Do not die.

  • Catherine is Caucasian (white), as mentioned by Vincent.
  • Catherine's boss forms are the Immoral Beast and "Catherine".
  • Catherine may be a rapist and Vincent could be viewed as a rape victim. It can be argued that Vincent's first drunken hookup with Catherine was consensual, since they might have both been drunk at the time. However, Vincent can't remember it in the morning, or any of their other sexual encounters either. It is unknown if she ever actually had sex with Vincent during the events of the main story, and there are arguments both ways. However, the Immoral Beast, the fact that Catherine wakes up next to Vincent naked, and in Vincent's dream, she says to Katherine that "Vincent is a wild man in the sack" implies that they had sex. However, this only occurred in one of Vincent's dreams. However, it can then be counter-argued that Vincent's reality would, naturally, affect his dreams and his subconscious.
  • Catherine is written as キャサリン (Kyasarin) in Japanese for both Catherine and Katherine. This leads to a lot more ambiguous references in the Japanese game, as the player must rely on context to determine which C/Katherine is being talked about. In a few instances in the English version, the vagueness of which one Vincent is talking about is so important that the localization team altered the subtitles to read as "her" when he actually speaks her name, leaving the player intentionally confused.
  • Catherine wears baby pink on her lips and cheeks and has blue eyeshadow on.
  • Catherine admits to having a sweet tooth, though the only food she is shown to order in the game is the summer squash pasta while at Chrono Rabbit.
    • This is also inconsistent with the story. It is crucially implied that only Vincent and Boss can see her, although it is implied the waiter/waitress at Chrono Rabbit can also see and hear her.
      • Given the player doesn't hear the waiter/waitress speak, it's possible Catherine was just pretending to talk with someone just so Vincent would hear her and run away from Katherine.
  • She has a tendency to give violent love bites, which Vincent has to cover up with bandages to hide.
  • Her e-mail through which Vincent texts her is "CoquettishCat@kriosphone...", where coquettish is a reference to her flirtatious personality and, "Cat," as a shortening of her name.
    • "kriosphone" seems to be a combination of "krios" and "phone". "Krios" is a probable reference to Crius, a figure in Greek mythology. "Krios" is also the ancient Greek word for "ram" (male sheep), which play a role in Catherine. "Kriosphone" could be viewed as a joke, since it is likely it is the e-mail service used for succubi to connect to their victims.
  • As mentioned in Vincent's trivia, Catherine represents the blonde, young woman in which a man must choose between her, or a black haired and mature looking woman in one of the Lovers Arcana tales. Catherine represents physical desire.
    • Katherine and Catherine share the same English voice actors with Yukari Takeba (Michelle Ruff voices Katherine and Yukari) and Rise Kujikawa (Laura Bailey voices Catherine and Rise), the characters who represent the Lovers Arcana (as Lovers Social Links and dating interests) in Persona 3 and Persona 4, respectively. Both games are related to Catherine.
Ant Invasion02:32

Ant Invasion

Catherine and the ants.

  • Despite being a demon, she seems to fear ants.
  • In the Catherine True Ending she is shown in her demonic form, with the same face as she had previously, meaning that either that is her true face or she decided to stay that way just for Vincent. The same can be said of Vincent, who looks similar to his mortal form.
  • Catherine confirmed in the Catherine Good Ending and Catherine True Ending that she is unable to bear children with a human male, though it is unclear if this is still true when Vincent becomes a demon himself, and the fact that she has a 'father' seems to indicate demons can in fact reproduce (of course it's possible she and Nergal aren't blood-relatives).
