small katze smoking screencap

Katze turns out to be a rather complex character. One one level he feels rather attached to Rikki and Iason. On the other he fears Iason a great deal, even to the point of betraying Rikki. He does not like who he is, but feels he is trapped. He is highly intelligent, which is one of the reasons Iason keeps him alive. He works for Iason by running the Black Market on the planet. In this scene, he is meeting with Kirrie in order to set up Rikki. Little does Kirrie know that his lack of loyalty to his former gang leader will cause him to be set up as well.
