===Life until 1992===
Catalina, of mixed Mexican and Colombian descent, began her criminal activities when she was a teenager at some point before [[1992]], when she [[First Date (GTA SA)|met]] [[Carl Johnson]] at the recommendation of her cousin, [[Cesar Vialpando]], meeting at [[The Welcome Pump]] in [[Dillimore]], with Catalina fending off two men with a [[knife]]. The two become romantically involved (Although in CJ's case it was reluctant), with Catalina putting Carl through an extreme form of BDSM before committing a robbery. The two begin to rob various 'soft targets' identified by Catalina, including a [[Gasso]] [[Tanker Commander|gas station]] in [[Dillimore]], a [[Small Town Bank|bank]] in [[Palomino Creek]], an [[Inside Track]] [[Against All Odds|betting shop]] in [[Montgomery]] and a [[Local Liquor Store|small liquor store]] in [[Blueberry]]. Their relationship, however, becomes strained over Carl's desire for money to help try and free his brother [[Sweet]], who was [[The Green Sabre|incarcerated]] by the [[Los Santos Police Department]]. After the two separate, she begins a relationship with [[Claude]] and 'helps' him in two races involving Carl and [[Wu Zi Mu]]. Johnson, who wins both races, wins a [[Doherty Garage|garage]] in [[Doherty]], [[San Fierro]] from Claude, who leaves with Catalina on a nine year journey to [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]]. Catalina, however, continues to phone Carl and tease him about her relationship with Claude. The last phone call is received immediately after [[End of The Line]], in which Catalina can be heard having sex with Claude.

After arriving in Liberty City, Catalina begins discussions with and becomes the leader of the [[Colombian Cartel]] and, with some of their members (including [[Miguel]]) [[Introduction (GTA III)|rob]] a [[Bank of Liberty|bank]] in the [[Ghost Town|city]]. After robbing the bank she shoots Claude, leaving him for dead, and explaining that he is 'small time', ending a nine year relationship. She continues her criminal activities with the Cartel, increasing the production of [[SPANK]] and attacking the [[Yakuza]] on [[Staunton Island]] and the [[Leone Family]] on [[Portland]].

After proving himself, Claude begins to work for the Family [[Gang Leaders|Don]], [[Salvatore Leone]], who has him [[Cutting the Grass|follow]] [[Luigi's Sex Club 7]] barman [[Curly Bob]] to [[Portland Harbor]], where he is seen to sell Leone secrets to Catalina and Miguel. Salvatore then has Claude and [[8-Ball]] [[Bomb Da Base Act II|destroy]] a freighter used by the Cartel to produce SPANK.

Catalina is portrayed as a reckless and extremely aggressive psychotic woman, who even turns on close partners if they cease to be useful to her (as seen with Carl, Claude and Miguel). Some of Catalina's psyche is brought to light during her robberies with Carl Johnson, frequently shooting pedestrians, police, and anyone who gets in her way. She also seems to suffer from a Persecution Complex, possibly due to cruel treatment by her stepfather as a child, telling Carl, after he criticizes her use of extreme force, that "They had to die because YOU were slow and stupid, like a big fat brat that eats chocolates while his father gives nothing to his stepdaughter but stale bread!"

BiographyEdit

Life until 1992Edit

Catalina, of mixed Mexican and Colombian descent, began her criminal activities at some point before 1992, when she met Carl Johnson at the recommendation of her cousin, Cesar Vialpando, meeting at The Welcome Pump in Dillimore, with Catalina fending off two men with a knife. The two become romantically involved (although in CJ's case it was reluctant), with Catalina putting Carl through an extreme form of BDSM before committing a robbery. The two begin to rob various 'soft targets' identified by Catalina, including a Gasso gas station in Dillimore, a bank in Palomino Creek, an Inside Track betting shop in Montgomery and a small liquor store in Blueberry. Their relationship, however, becomes strained over Carl's desire for money to help try and free his brother Sweet, who was incarcerated by the LSPD. After the two separate, she begins a relationship with Claude and "helps" him in two races involving Carl and Wu Zi Mu. Johnson, who wins both races, wins a garage in Doherty, San Fierro from Claude, who leaves with Catalina on a nine year journey to Liberty City. Catalina, however, continues to phone Carl and tease him about her relationship with Claude. The last phone call is received immediately after End of The Line, in which Catalina can be heard having sex with Claude.

1992 to 2001Edit

Catalina and Claude, after leaving San Andreas, begin a nine year journey to Liberty City, going through many American states committing bank robberies, including Texas and New Mexico. The two, however, continue on their journey to Liberty City, reaching their destination in October 2001.

2001Edit

After arriving in Liberty City, Catalina begins discussions with and becomes the leader of the Colombian Cartel and, with some of their members (including Miguel) rob a bank in the city. After robbing the bank she kills an unnamed accomplice and shoots Claude, leaving him for dead, and explaining that he is 'small time', ending a nine year relationship. She continues her criminal activities with the Cartel, increasing the production of SPANK and attacking the Yakuza on Staunton Island and the Leone Family on Portland. During this period, Claude managed to escape from an LCPD convoy with, unintentionally, help from the Colombian Cartel (who were seeking to capture the Old Oriental Gentleman) and began working for Leone made man and nightclub/brothel owner Luigi Goterelli. After proving himself, Claude begins to work for the Family Don, Salvatore Leone, who has him follow Luigi's Sex Club 7 barman Curly Bob to Portland Harbor, where he is seen to sell Leone secrets to Catalina and Miguel. Salvatore then has Claude and 8-Ball destroy a freighter used by the Cartel to produce SPANK.

Claude later flees to Staunton Island and begins to work for Yakuza co-leader Asuka Kasen who begins to attack the Cartel following the death of her brother Kenji at the hands of a 'Cartel assassin', which was really Claude working on orders from Donald Love. Love later sends Claude to collect a package from a construction site in Fort Staunton, where he once again meets Catalina and Miguel, with Catalina shooting Miguel in the back and escaping empty-handed. Asuka, desperate to exact revenge for her brother's death, begins to torture Miguel for information, with Claude then using the information to attack Cartel interests, including destroying stands selling SPANK run by the Uptown Yardies.

Catalina, however, strikes back and kills both Asuka and Miguel, and kidnaps Maria Latore, using her as a hostage and demanding a $500,000 ransom be brought to the Cartel headquarters in Cedar Grove. Claude decides to take the ransom money to Catalina and manages to escape an ambush, set up by Catalina, who escapes in a helicopter and keeps Maria hostage. Claude follows Catalina to Cochrane Dam, where he destroys the helicopter with a rocket launcher, killing Catalina and severely weakening the Cartel.

PersonalityEdit

Catalina is portrayed as a reckless and extremely aggressive psychotic woman, who even turns on close partners if they cease to be useful to her (as seen with Carl, Claude and Miguel). Some of Catalina's psyche is brought to light during her robberies with Carl Johnson, frequently shooting pedestrians, police, and anyone who gets in her way. She also seems to suffer from a Persecution Complex, possibly due to cruel treatment by her stepfather as a child, telling Carl, after he criticizes her use of extreme force, that "They had to die because YOU were slow and stupid, like a big fat brat that eats chocolates while his father gives nothing to his stepdaughter but stale bread!"
