Katta was born on Bandomeer to Cahnina Junobelle, and was dicovered by the Jedi seconds before the Sith. Jedi knight Obi-wan Kenobi and his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, were sent to pick her up and take her to the Jedi Temple. At the Temple, Katta began training as a youngling. She was the cutest youngling in the galaxy, according to Anakin, who adored childen. During her first few years in the Temple, she made some life-long friendships with a few other younglings; Jadis Boomer, Saphira Loconjinn, Camron Jandoe, Lexa Windlind, Stuu Bengal and Wing Arret. As the Clone Wars raged, Katta formed new relationships with other Jedi, such as Jesco Nightwing, Roxanna Oolange, Lahshretat Tano and a youngling named Jonde Calabaho, or Cabo.
Katta was chosen by Grand Master Yoda to train under Jedi knight Aayla Secura at the age of thirteen. During the following weeks, Katta learned that she possesed Jedi lightning, a rare Jedi gift that was passed down by many generations of Jedi. Aayla and Yoda helped her sharpen her abilities with the rare gift. Three years later,the Clone Wars began at the Genosian Arena. Katta was strictly prohibited by her Master to take part in the battle, and she heeded her Master's warning. But later as the battles on various fronts began, Katta took up her blades and fought along side the Jedi Generals and clones.
