Katsuro was born to a typical family in a small village in the Earth Republic. His grandfather—grandpappy, as they call him—fought with the loyalists in the Rebellion. His father was serving in the navy for the Republic when he met a beautiful woman whom he married. They had a son, and named him Katsuro. A few years later, they had a girl named Riko. Katsuro and Riko were nearly inseparable as children.
But one night, while everybody was asleep, two men broke into the house and slaughtered Katsuro's parents. Pursuing them, he tried his hardest to catch them. That's when he unlocked his Earthbending abilities. He fought them as hard as he could, but they still got away. He barely survived; they were so strong. He was only 6 years old when his parents were murdered. After that, he and he and Riko moved across the Earth Republic to Ba Sing Se, moving in with grandpappy. They loved the old man more than they loved their own parents.
After turning 13. Katsuro began to pursue his dreams as a police officer. He applied for the local police force's youth training program, and was accepted. He loved every moment of the program, learning about the local laws and law enforcement. But he had to drop out of both the program and his schooling 2 years later to take care of grandpappy, whose health was deteriorating quickly. Katsuro got a job to support Riko and himself. While he worked, Riko would take care of grandpappy. One day while he was working, however, grandpappy passed away.
Katsuro came home to see Riko crying beside his grandfather's lifeless body. Any type of sanity he still had broke, and he fell into a mood of dazed, lifeless depression. He buried his own grandfather, with no ceremony, and went on with life as normal, working to support now only him and Riko. But Riko wasn't happy; she wanted to move our on her own. This eventually led to a huge argument between the two, which ended in Riko moving out, leaving Katsuro all alone.
That night, after Riko had left, and after silence had grown over the apartment, Katsuro broke down into an insane bout of rage. After trashing the apartment, he fell on the floor, crying. The will to live left him, and all he wanted to do was curl up in a ball and die. But he knew he couldn't do that; his parents would have never let him do that. And that's when he realized it: Although he had nobody, his parents were still counting on him. If they were looking down on him, he knew they'd want him to pursue his dreams.
And that's what he did. Putting himself back together, he packed up and moved to Republic City. The though of living by yourself would have any 17-year-old rattling in their boots, but not Katsuro. He was brave, and he didn't let anyone stop him. He got a job at the Republic City police department, pursuing his goal as a detective. Things only look bright for his future.
Being a lawful good, Katsuro can never stand by and let people suffer. He is eager to help people. His past has left him calloused to the world around him; his depression has lessened, but it's still there. Nothing can ease the pain of losing everyone he loved. Anybody who tries to get close him only gets pushed away; he wont let anyone in. He is eagerly pursuing his goals of mastering Metalbending, becoming a detective, and advancing as a pro-bender. He has a deep sense of service and is slightly interested in politics, although even the thought sickens him. That is the reason why he chose the police force instead of politics.
