[DETAILED STATS]

Appearance:

Cate is tall, but not ungainly, her natural hair colour is Sandy Blonde, although few of late has seen that. She will be a red head one time you see her and the next Brunette. In her past she often used disguises often and uses that skill well, often wearing the local clothing of whatever area she is working in, but on base or on ‘official’ duty she will wear the dress of the day. On her left arm, running from shoulder to wrist is a black and red tattoo of a dragon, a souvenir from a time she had been working in the Hong Kong region. Cate has blue/green eyes. She wears scars across her back from her time held captive in North Korea.
   

Personality:

At times belligerent, abrasive. Uses course language frequently. Can be friendly once she knows people. She is extremely motivated and loyal, being able to fit in with almost any group or circle she finds herself in. That might seem a little contradictory to her mean streak, but she saves that and her sarcastic whit for those who rub her the wrong way. Essentially Cate does not suffer fools easily, she will go out of her way to be kind and courteous, but the rough side of her personality, at times will show through, even among those she is working with and it has to a degree made her a subject of disciplinary action from her commanding officers on a number of occasions. In the main, it is enemy combatants that will feel the brunt of her demeanour when the wrong buttons are pressed. She is also not the most passionate of women, having this extremely hard edge to her that turns potential lovers off, they see a beautiful woman, until she speaks, then it all goes south.

   

Hobbies/Interests:

Music, mostly of the Country genre-she plays guitar: enjoys fishing and reading long novels. Cate loves to delve into history, she regards that as a hobby and takes it to another degree by seeking out archaeology sites whenever she can. She is passionate to almost being OCD about horses, she will if she can, talk endlessly about them. Back home in Australia she has five, all Show jumpers.

Field/Work Experience:

    She graduated from ADFA in 2005 (Australian Defence Force Academy)with a BA in Physics and a PhD in Electrical Engineering having written a paper on Thermal Dynamics, after which Cate then went immediately to fast jet training with RAAF. On completing her initial training she qualified on the F/A18c and with exchange postings with both the USAF and RAF she completed further training on the BAE Hawk, Boeing F/A18D and F and the GD F16D. Eighteen months into her Air Force career, after two months in Afghanistan, she was sought out by ASIS recruitment; the Australian version of the CIA as was their regular method of sourcing the appropriate candidates. Cate was only one of eight candidates at the time.

    Her first mission was deep inside North Korea to locate and retrieve stolen military software; she was captured after being betrayed by a double agent and held for 3 months, Cate’s handler being safely tucked away in Hong Kong. No one expected her to return at that time and in her captivity she endured physical torture and as a result she bears the scars of repeated whippings across her back. Through cunning and resourcefulness, she managed to escape, a lazy guard thought she was subdued enough to enter her cell, it was a fatal mistake on his part. Eventually making it back home via Seoul and the Australian Embassy, the double agent was never found and the case unceremoniously closed. In 2011 Cate returned to full time active duty with the Air Force, although she still does ‘contract’ work for both ASIS and the CIA with her superiors knowledge.

 Currently Cate is serving a two year tour as an exchange pilot with the 187th US Air National Guard Wing, as the 100th FS Squadron leader. She is in command of Cobra flight. The 187th is located at Montgomery Air National Guard Base, Alabama. The 100th is the famed 'Tuskegee Airmen' unit of WW2, in her capacity Cate had to learn quite quickly how to fly 'old school' as she was the designated driver of the Squadron's P51D Mustang during open days at the base. Elements of the 187th FW were recently stationed at Bagram Air Base Afghanistan, which includes twelve F16 block D fighter/bombers from the 100th, for Operation Enduring Freedom. They returned to Alabama for some down time, with a new mission slotted in for them somewhere is South America, currently classified.

 Cate has previously been XO of 77 Sqn RAAF, F/A18c's at Williamstown NSW and XO of 1 Sqn RAAF F/A18F. Earlier in her career she served two rotations as co-pilot on the venerable F111. She served six months with the Roulettes Flying team on the PC-9


   
Personal History:
 Cate grew up in suburban Sydney, with her twin brother Ben, to Anne and William MacGregor. She lived her whole life around Navy bases, both her parents serving with the RAN, William is now an Admiral and her mother a Captain surgeon. Cate had a fairly nondescript life until she graduated from High School then as she said much later all hell broke loose. She graduated with the highest marks achieved in subjects such as science, math and high school engineering Because she was already in her schools Air Force Cadets and she graduated with high marks, she was asked to apply for,  to enlist and serve with the Officer Graduation Candidate Academy. Her going to the Air Force was much to her parent’s dismay, but she argued that it was there she would serve her country best. Her brother Ben, is currently serving with the SAS.

 Despite her 'difficult' personality Cate has made some good friends over the years but sadly never anything even near meaningful in the guise of what could be called a relationship. That was until the day she walked into  Montgomery Air base. After settling in she went as most do to the officer's mess where the first person she saw was this man in jeans and cowboy boots smelling distinctly of horses. He was Captain Robert Henschel of the ANG, normally a cop (that didn't put her off) they were in conversation from the start, they've been inseparable for a year.

Captain USANG  Robert 'Bob' Henschel
1st Lieutenant USANG Patricia 'Trish' Ramirez
