Katarina is a female Progenitor that appears in the Siberia level of Conduit 2. She was prisoner of The Trust, and it was Michael Ford's mission to find and help her. During the Cold War she secretly controlled the USSR.
According to data logs, Katarina liked to experiment with cybernetic technology, due to organics being "unstable". Her work includes the Siberian Wolves and Cyborgs encountered all over her fortress, it is possible that Sasquatches are also product of her experiments. She also worked on anti-air Ion Cannons, but wasn't able to set them operational before the Trust invaded her base.
Katarina was captured by the trust personel, and held trapped within a containment tank. It appears that the trust plan was to kill her so Adams would be able to absorb her powers easily, and so Ford wouldn't be able to interact with her before Adams. When Ford arrives the base, he learns that the scientists are already working on that and there is no time to lose. However, by the time he arrives to her, she is way too wounded to survive and decides to give her powers to Ford so he can stop Adams' plans.

Subject: Progenitor Katarina
The Progenitor known as Katarina was originally the goddess Inanna, and for a while she bonded with the Russian ruler known as Catherine the Great. She has since taken on many new forms, but she still retained the name of her favorite hybrid. The fall of the Soviet Union and the recent rise of Russia once more emboldened Katarina, and she has formed a new plan to become a power in the region again. Tapping into her alien technology, she has developed an army of cybernetic robots with which she hopes to make a play soon.
- Katarina is the Macedonian form of the name Katherine, or Catherine, possibly hinting at a greater connection between her and Catherine the Great
