Kat the Cat was brought to the Dredgion through accidental summoning, courtesy of Arami whimsically playing with Glyphs unsupervised. Through a combination of potent magical links, Kat the Cat burst through a temporal rift, the first of many to be established on board the Dredgion. While Arami was thrilled to have a new friend, Kat was simply relieved to be summoned by someone who only wished to play games, as he had no great wish to do any actual work. While Arami tried to hide Kat, as he was a product of performing magic that was restricted upon the Dredgion, Imadath eventually started finding a large excess of feline hair on the bridge of the Dredgion.
Once Kat was discovered, Imadath could see the spiritual connection the creature had to others of its kind. He gave Kat an ultimatum: Work for the Dredgion as an assistant to the Masters, or be returned to his native realm the next time a temporal rift to it opened. Choosing the lesser of two evils, work, or harder work, Kat decided to remain on the Dredgion. In his mind, the Masters at least treated him as an equal, and fighting along side them was usually more entertainment than actual work.
