Early Life

Kait Diaz was born on 20 A.E. on Tyrus, and is the daughter of former Gear soldier Gabriel Diaz, and stranded Reyna Torres, and is the niece of Oscar Diaz. Her mother was also the daughter of Myrrah, the former queen of the Locust Horde, who met her end by Marcus Fenix by the end of the Locust War and Lambent Pandemic. Gabriel and Reyna later founded Fort Umson, a community of people who refused the reorganized Coalition of Ordered Governments, and Kait was raised there.

As a child, her parents took her camping to teach her survival skills, and was later taught some engineering from her father. Around the age of ten, her was dying of Rustlung, and Kait became horrified of this, having dreams of her killing him to end his pain. Before his death, Reyna revealed the existence of Oscar, but he was disowned by the family for being reckless and a alcoholic. Before traveling to see his brother, Oscar had spent a couple of years recovering, but relapsed upon learning that his brother died before he made it to the fort.

Kait was later taught how to shoot and fight from Oscar, and learned more about engineering and mechanics from her father's books. In time, Oscar became a father figure to Kait, and Oscar became the second-in-command of the village after gaining Reyna's trust. As Kait became a young adult, she went on scavenging missions with her uncle, and often raided settlements that were walled COG cities built by DeeBees.

In 41 AE, the COG's reputation became worsened due to the massacre of Settlement 2, causing the Outsider's belief to become solidified, and made some civilians and soldiers abandon the COG and join the Outsiders. The two present at the incident were Marcus Fenix and Anya Stroud's son, former Lieutenant James Dominic "JD" Fenix and his best friend Delmont "Del" Walker, causing the two to abandon the COG. Though Reyna wanted to execute the two, Kait defended them, and they were allowed to become members of the Outsiders. Over the next six months, the three became close friends, and would help the village survive.

Gears of War 4

When raiding settlement five with Oscar, JD, Del, they are stopped by First Minister Mina Jinn and her DeeBees. The minister accuses them of kidnapping her people, but they are able to escape with a fabricator due to an unknown party destroying Jinn's robot. Returning to the village, Kait and the group help the Outsiders fight against Jinn's DeeBees, managing to protect the villagers and defeat Jinn's forces. Shortly after, the village was attacked by unknown creatures, which captured many people, including Reyna and Oscar. Kait, JD and Del managed to evade the creatures, whom Del considers were attacking like a "swarm". JD studied a severed crystalized arm of a creature that Reyna managed to cut off, and decided he and the others needed to see his father if they were going to rescue Reyna and the villagers.

Going to the Stroud estate, Kait meets JD's father, Marcus, who's still angry that his son joined the COG despite his telling him not to. Giving his father the severed arm, Marcus' realizes what it is, but the group are forced to fight against Jinn's forces. Marcus gifts Kait with his late wife's armor and weapons to fight against the DeeBees, and the group manage to leave the ruined estate, becoming fugitives. Going to Fort Reval, Marcus tells Kait, JD and Del that upon defeating the Locust, they buried them the Osmium mines, and their bodies became encased his unbreakable crystal cocoons. While investigating, Marcus is abducted by a Snatcher, and despite wanting to save her mother, Kait decides to aid JD in rescuing his father, feeling responsible due to bringing Marcus into this.

Kait and the group battle through waves of Swarm soldiers, and manage to rescue Marcus from being fully harvested. Marcus reveals that he felt the connection of the Swarm through a hivemind, and tells the group that the villagers are dead. After escaping the mine, Kait lashes at Marcus for wanting to regroup instead of saving her mother, and refuses to wait. JD and Del agree with Kait, and Marcus reluctantly decides to follow them. The group reach to the Tollen Dam, and are confronted by the Speaker, who they manage to defeat, and Kait executes him. Proceeding to the Speyer, Kait and company hold off against a Swarm attack after having a mostly peaceful talk with Jinn. After holding off the ambush, they meet with Marcus' backup, Damon Baird, Augustus Cole, and Samantha Byrne.

The team trek back through the dam to the abandoned city of Tellen, and Kait and JD battle several Swarmaks until they ecounter a Swarm creature at the site of the main nest. After a intense fight, they dismember the creature, and Kait enters the nest, finding her mother biologically entombed within the Swarm's biomass. Reyna tells her daughter that killing her will separate her form the Swarm's hivemind, and urges her daughter to cut her loss. Despite knowing that cutting her lose will kill, Kait tearfully cuts her mother from the Swarm's biomass, killing her. Afterward, Kait was comforted by her allies, and shows them the medallion that mother had given her, which belonged with her grandmother. The medallion is shaped like the icon of the Locust Horde, revealing her to be the granddaughter of Queen Myrrah.
