hey love
~ Catra's most famous catchphrase.

Some people have a bad day. i had a bad life If I want something, it will be taken away from me. If I win the fight, I lose the war. Threats only work on those who have something to lose. But I? I've already lost everything. And you can't be good at it because you just get distracted. So what will it be?
~ Catra for the Crimson Waste Denziens.
Hello Adora. Ah... Where are your friends? (Adora: Catra, stop it. You have to-) It's always like that with you, Adora. "I have to do this. Oh, we have to do this.” Let's face it, this is all your fault. If you hadn't been caught, your sword wouldn't have opened the portal. If you hadn't taken up the sword and been the worst She-Ra in the world, none of this would have happened. (Adora screams) Admit it, Adora, the world would still stand if you had never walked through that portal at all. you did this to me you took everything from me You destroyed the world and it's all your fault.
~ Catra scoffed and blamed Adora as reality began to crumble.

Catra is a slender, fair-skinned girl of feline origin with an athlete's physique. She has angular facial features such as a pointed chin, a straight nose, and slanted, heterochromatic, almond-shaped eyes in shades of light yellow (left) and turquoise (right). She has three freckles on her cheeks, gently arched dark eyebrows and a devilishly thin smile with sharp teeth.

Because of her portrayal and her feline parentage, she is depicted as a young girl with sharp claws on her hands and toes, small fangs, large black cat ears, and horizontal markings on her arms and three on her back that resemble those of a tabby cat. stripes. She also sports wild, slicked-back spiky ash-brown hair hidden behind a feline-inspired auburn headdress.

She wears a two-tone orange leotard top over ripped reddish-purple leggings that wrap around her foot, exposing her toes and heels. She is also seen in two belts, the thickest of the two bearing the Horde symbol, and as the show progresses we see her wearing the Captain of the Force brooch on her shirt over her heart.

At the time she sided with Adora, Catra wore a mix of her previous two looks, no longer wearing her iconic tiara and now sporting short hair.


Problems are okay: Wow, I knew this would piss you off, but you're still really obsessed, aren't you, kitty? You know it took a while but I finally understood your character. You try so hard to play the big bad villain but your heart was never in it, was it?
von: What--? What are you? To stop. Stop doing that.
Problems are okay: People hurt you, didn't they? They didn't believe you. They didn't trust you. I didn't need you Left you. But have you ever thought that maybe they're not the problem? And you. You drive them away, wildcat.
von: Why are you doing this?
Problems are okay: It's for your own good, dear. We both know that was never what you really wanted.
~ Duplicate issues analyzing Catra's twisted personality.

Catra is quite a provocative, lazy, irritable, cynical, irreverent, impulsive, self-centered, stubborn, provocative, violent, and abusive person. Although she got along well with her best friend Adora before she left the Horde, Catra never seemed able to befriend anyone, even at a young age, due to her aggressive and violent nature. As a result, she was a lonely person in her childhood. Although she did enjoy the company of Adora, who she enjoyed her time with.

Because of her short-tempered, irreverent, impulsive, egocentric, stubborn, and violent personality, and her tendency to harm others (like clawing out Octavia's eye just because Catra didn't like Octavia's face), she was often scolded and punished by Weaver of Shadows. Due to her self-centered and egotistical personality, Catra developed a sense of inferiority as she believed that she was living in Adora's shadow and that this would later turn her into a more selfish and power-hungry person who always has to prove that she is the best. She also frequently blames herself, blames others, and uses scapegoats for her mistakes and actions, without ever taking responsibility for her shortcomings or mistakes.

As Captain of the Force, Catra remains largely focused on the Horde's success. It gets worse as you rank up, with Double Trouble even noting that Catra takes the war on the Rebellion very seriously. After losing Scorpia's friendship, Catra suffers a mental breakdown and develops mild mental instability. In the end, her consuming ambition was finally shattered when Double Trouble falsely betrayed her, claiming Catra wasn't a villain when in fact she was. This act only served to psychologically destroy Catra even more, causing her to believe even more that she was a victim and triple blaming her, shifting the blame and using others as scapegoats for her mistakes and mistakes. All of this left Catra on the verge of embracing death and encouraging Glimmer to simply kill her, though Glimmer refused to do so out of pity.

After the utter failure of her conquest of Eternia within the Horde and the psychological devastation caused by Double Trouble, Catra begins to question herself to the point of doubting her life choices. She also tries to bond with Glimmer as they encounter a similar amount of miscalculation and alienate her own friends. Risking her life to save Glimmer, Catra apologizes to Adora for everything she has done. She claims to have regrets for her past actions and claims that she realized Adora was always there for her. She also sacrifices everything to ensure Adora is safe, telling her old friend not to try to approach Prime and sacrificing her own safety to ensure Adora is safe as she doesn't believe that Adora wants to save her because Catra, having her own mind, destroyed their former friendship.

After her release from Horde Prime's mind control, Catra struggled to fit in with the group, behaving in a typically anti-social manner even when Adora wanted to help her, wanting to be left alone, declaring that everyone hates her, and calling Adora one idiot. for saving her. Catra faces up to her mistakes by apologizing to Entrapta and is moved when the Princess of Dryl forgives her without hard feelings, she was also moved by the acceptance of the group among them.

From then on, Catra returned to the provocative personality of her cadet days, while retaining a certain vanity and a little pessimism. Unlike her teammates, Catra had a slightly more level-headed mind, as evidenced when she pointed out that attempting to simply blow up Horde Prime's armada to return to Etheria as Adora had intended would be suicidal . She wasn't happy to see Shadow Weaver again due to his long bitterness towards her, but she cried when her mother figure sacrificed her life. Shadow Weaver's last words were to tell Catra how proud she was of her. At the end of the series, Catra confesses her romantic feelings for Adora and reconciles with Scorpia while preparing for more adventures with Bow, Glimmer, and Adora. In the end, Catra found her happiness.

~ Catra reveals her evil nature.
von: You better have something for me.
Scorpio: Recordings of Entrapta. She kept them all in Emily. The chip was damaged when I pulled it out, but... I hope that doesn't matter? It was so small, and you know... a pair of tweezers.
von: You broke... the recordings?
Scorpio: I... I didn't want to...
von: I asked you to do something! One simple thing and you screwed up! But of course you screwed it up. Yes. you are scorpio That's exactly what you do! You couldn't handle Emily...

von: I don't want to see anyone, okay?! Not you, not Arrow Boy or Sparkles, and definitely not Entrapta.
loves: So, are you going to hide here forever? At some point you have to face them...
von: No, not me. Just drop me off at the next planet, I'll go my own way.
loves: What, so Horde Prime can retake it?
von: I can look after myself.
loves: I promised to take you home, and that's exactly what I'm going to do. Why are you acting like this?! We saved your life!
von: I told you not to come back! But you love feeling like a hero don't you?
loves: Should I let you die there?!
von: WHAT DO YOU CARE?! I know you all hate me!
loves: I never hated you!
von: ...So you're even dumber than I thought. Just leave me alone.
loves: I'm such an idiot. I thought things would be different this time but obviously nothing has changed.
~ Catra argues with Adora.
Entrapta, wait... Thanks. And I'm sorry. (Entrapta: I forgive you.)
