“Then you should know that some women don't take kindly to quipping. If you don't want to talk, then let me sit by your side in silence. I just want you to keep an open heart, Zeek...”
—Kate, in a conversation with Zeek
Kate (ケイト Keito) is a playable character from TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga. She is a loyal knight of Wellt who is assigned to be the bodyguard of Princess Sasha. She deeply respects her deceased father, who was a knight like her.
Kate is introduced alongside Sasha when they are fleeing from Duke Codha's soldiers at the beginning of the game. Both of them join Runan's army after he comes to their aid. Early in the game, Kate makes a promise to never leave Sasha's side. In her first conversation with Zeek, she is suspicious of him until he reveals that he was enslaved and forced to serve the Gerxel Church.
Despite Zeek's attempts to remain distant from her, she insists on staying by his side. Over time, the two of them fall in love. Believing that Zeek is misunderstood by the others in Runan's army, she ignores Norton's warnings that Zeek is most likely to be a traitor. When Zeek defects back to the Zoa Empire, Kate immediately assumes that he has been captured by the Gerxel Church and asks Runan to rescue him.
Regardless of which army that Kate is sent with after the third route split, she will eventually reunite with Zeek. If she is in Holmes's army, she frees Zeek after he is captured by her allies at the end of Map 31. Before Zeek can reveal the truth about himself, Nefka appears and tells Kate that she has been tricked by Zeek. Afterwards, she is kidnapped by Nefka and imprisoned in the Gerxel Church's temple.
When Runan and Holmes invade the temple towards the end of the game, Kate can be re-recruited by Sasha if both of them were sent with the same army after the third route split. If she is recruited back into Runan's army, she will be present in the final battle against Zeek.
In the ending, Kate refuses to accompany Sasha back to Wellt Castle and instead decides to visit her father's grave. She also tells Sasha that her father would not forgive her for her actions and claims that she lacks the qualifications to continue on as a knight.
Kate aspires to live as a fine knight because of a promise that she made to her father before his death. She is initially confident in her fighting skills and ability to protect Sasha. Unlike the rest of Runan's army, she believes Zeek's claims and trusts him. She becomes very upset when others suspect that Zeek is a traitor, as shown in her conversation with Norton. After Zeek leaves the army, she is always in low spirits and behaves strangely, which Sasha points out in their scene before the third route split.
When Kate reunites with Runan and Holmes near the end of the game, she feels deeply ashamed of herself and believes that they would not forgive her for her actions. However, she is reassured that all of her allies like her.
If she is kidnapped from Holmes's army (at the start of Map 32), she will appear in a cell in Map 38. If she is kidnapped from Runan's army (at the end of Map 36), she will appear in Map 39. She can be re-recruited by having Sasha speak to her in either scenario.

|Knight Proof||Arrow Knight|
Kate is a decent unit, starting with good bases and average growth rates, but rather poor Movement that can cause her to be left behind by the other characters. She will be a useful fighter who doubles as both a sword-user and an archer, and her support with Sasha will prove to be useful, especially early in the game. She also receives good support bonuses from Zeek, but since he is not playable for very long, it is limited in usefulness. Regardless, it helps her offense and defenses in the early stages of the game, making her easier to train. Her promotion gives her a mount, which fixes her Movement problems, but also rather poor stat gains. Statistically, she is very similar to the other Lady Knight, Sharon, although Sharon has superior Agility. Nothing in particular makes her stand out, but she is among the better half of the playable mounted units.
If the player wants to keep all of the playable characters alive for the ending, it is noteworthy that it is helpful to train Kate, as she is auto-fielded in a chapter near the end of the game and thus will be placed in the middle of the battle. Although, Sierra and Renee have some tricks that can be used to ease the situation if Kate ends up being under-trained.
