One of 2 main villains of the 1st season of Kagaku Ninja-Tai Gatchaman. Subgeneral of terrorist organization called Galactor. Works under supervision of Sosai X (General/ Leader X). At the beginning of the series he's (she's) 27/28 years old.
Specialties: A master of disguise and subterfuge, full of tricks and hidden bombs. A superb escape artist.
Info: Katze is a mutant, created when Sosai X merged male and female twins in their mother's womb. As a result, Katze can shift genders, and spent years transferring between schools due to a yearly gender change until he/she gained control over this ability.
When female, Katze is said to have an IQ of over 280 (and is sometimes seen in the series as the Female General, or Mala in Battle of the Planets). Katse may also be able to change shape. Katze managed to keep his/her identity secret throughout most of the series until Dr. Nambu dug up some old school records and documentation, then fit the puzzle pieces together.
Note: While some fans refer to Katze as a hermaphrodite, Katze is actually a mutant who is either completely male or completely female at any given time. With one exception: the time he was caught in the backwash of the Mechaziner Ray in one of the final episodes of Gatchaman—the first time viewers see Katse officially unmasked.
