Higurashi Katsumi was born in 6 BNE to a Force-User father and a second-generation Esper mother. She led a normal childhood until 0 NE when a small Yakuza organization attempted to kidnap her and her parents. Although her parents resisted the yakuza long enough for Katsumi to escape, she was found shortly afterwards and forced to join the yakuza, who claimed to have captured her parents as well. Enslaved by the yakuza, she was eventually put to work as a pickpocket, but by 4 NE had shown no signs of the powers the yakuza had hoped she would develop.
In 4 NE, shortly after the end of the Jedi Civil War, Katsumi attempted to steal one of Akatsuka Ryuji's lightsabers, believing it would fetch a high enough price to buy her parents' freedom. Although he caught her, she reminded him of himself as a child and he made her his apprentice, promising to help find her parents.
Despite her difficult childhood Katsumi remains optimistic and outgoing . She feels a deep gratitude to Akatsuka Ryuji for freeing her from the yakuza.
