Katherine is Julian and Sheridan�s mother and Rachel Barrett�s sister, whom was married to Alistair. After Rachel's death, Alistair pursued Katherine and they eventually married. Into the marriage, Katherine soon learned that Alistair could never love her and began to abuse her. To escape the abuse, Katherine left the country with Martin Fitzgerald and moved to Mexico together. They assumed different identities as Ellen and Bob Wheeler, a married couple. While she was gone, Alistair faked her death and she had no contact with her children. Katherine and Martin eventually fell in love and were able to watch Paloma, Martin's youngest daughter, grow up. Years later, Luis and Sheridan came to Mexico to take Paloma back to Harmony. Alistair also finally found out where Katherine had been hiding. Paloma was kidnapped and Katherine and Martin almost died. They returned to Harmony with Paloma and Katherine was arrested for the attempted murder of Alistair. Martin's truth was also revealed and devastated his family. Pilar and her children grew to hate Katherine. Paloma remained faithful to Katherine and Martin throughout all of this. As time passed, the close relationship of Katherine and Paloma began to fade as Paloma began to grow close to her own mother, Pilar. Later on, Katherine learned that her once dead sister, Rachel, was actually alive and well.
