Ise Katae started life in YE 08 as a Human living in the town of Mei in the Yumiuki Prefecture. She was born into the Ise Clan. Her childhood was a happy one, spending time with her family and learning the family business. She was educated at the local schools, and would visit Yumiuki with her parents.
Katae's world was shattered YE 24 after losing her family in the Second Draconian War. The Ise Clan tried to take Katae in, but she left Mei, transferred the title of the family home to the temple, severed all ties to the family, and joined the Star Army. She was driven by a need to avenge those that she lost. This caused her to be a bit overly aggressive, a trait that the years tempered. Katae never contacted anyone in the clan or returned to Mei during this time.
Her experience in the field showed that she had leadership potential, and her commander nominated her for officer training. However, her admission was delayed because of the Species Restriction Order of YE 29 barring Human in YE 29 from serving in the Star Army.
Ise opted to transition to a NH-29 to better perform her duties. She then attended the Kyoto War College, returned to the Katana. Her time there allowed her to re-examine her life, and she realized that she needed to start thinking about the future. Working hard she continued to rise through the ranks, using the same determination she had earlier, but tempered with experience. In YE 30 she was promoted to Taii, and given her first command the YSS Aeon.
