Kate Connors is the twin sister and polar opposite of Faith Connors. More sensible and reliable, Kate believes in the "good" of the city, and joined the City Protection Force to help preserve it. She dislikes Faith's clientele, as Faith does cops. Their very different paths have kept them apart for years, though Kate still has a lot of affection for her sister and trusts her implicitly.
Early life Edit
Born into a family of four, Kate grew close to her father, Abraham Connors, while Faith grew close to their mother, Erika Connors. Kate's parents were protesters against the rise of the totalitarian regime that was gradually taking control of the city. With her father providing funds and leadership to the Libertas movement, her parents brought their two children along to their protests. Kate and her sister witnessed the murder of their mother during the November Riots, as she was crushed to death as others sought to escape. After her mother's death, Kate's father became depressed, as a result of guilt, to the point of alcoholism.
At the age of 16, Faith left Kate and their father to live on the streets. After a series of burglaries, that were later found to be enacted by Silvine Security Systems, Abraham Connors sent Kate to live with an aunt in New City while he stayed in Old Town, later setting the house up for sale under Kate's name.
Sometime later, Kate became an officer within the City Protection Force.
Trainee years Edit
During her probation as a trainee officer, Kate was visited by Faith during patrol. Asking if she knew where their father was, Kate suggested that her sister check out Hoagy's Bar, where their father once loitered.
Later, Faith, who started looking for clues as to what Silvine Security was searching for in their old house, infiltrated a demolition site for a New Eden Estate in order to gain access to their house. Kate, having deduced that it was Faith that was the "crazy girl that had jumped off of a crane to get in", confronted her in the house just in time for the two to escape before the demolition charges went off.
Murder of Robert Pope Edit
Now a junior officer, Kate conducted a follow-up check with Robert Pope in his offices about a series of break-ins that occurred the week before. He then asked Kate about Faith. Suddenly, Kate was attacked and lost consciousness; she awoke to a murdered Pope, who was killed with her gun. Having been listening in over the CPF radio chatter, Faith arrived when the radio announced the reporting of gunshots from the mayor's office that Kate was in. Promising to help, Faith took a piece of evidence from Pope's desk and escaped the CPF forces to begin her own investigation into the murder. Meanwhile, Kate was charged with murder and later found guilty for Pope's death.
Faith, having found the real murderers, but unable to expose the lies, ambushed the convoy carrying Kate to prison from a rooftop with a Barrett M95 and tells Kate to head for Mercury's hideout. Kate was later recaptured by the CPF when the latter ransacked Mercury's hideout. She was then taken to the Shard building, presumably to be transported directly to jail from there. Forming an alliance with Lieutenant Miller, Kate's superior in the CPF, her sister caused the destruction of the city's surveillance servers in order to gain access to the building's rooftop, where she found Jacknife holding Kate at gunpoint and loading her into to a drop-off helicopter. Kate was then rescued by an undeterred Faith when her sister jumped into the helicopter and kicked Jacknife out to his death.
- Kate is voiced by Philippa Alexander.
- She, like her sister, is of mixed descent.
- She was 24 at the time of Mirror's Edge.
- After the ending of Mirror's Edge, it is announced that Faith and Kate became wanted fugitives and were being hunted by the CPF.
- On the Battlefield 3 map Operation Metro, above the Faith Connors street name, a street named "Catherine" can be found, which is presumably related to Kate.
