Katarin's newborn child.

Terra comes to stay in Mobliz and begins to take care of the younger children. About this time, Katarin becomes pregnant, and does not know what to do, but Terra helps her. When Terra rejoins the Returners after the defeat of Humbaba, Duane and Katarin resolve their differences. After Kefka has been felled, Katarin gives birth. Hironobu Sakaguchi had high hopes for the scene where Katarin was giving birth, as he had just had a child himself.[1]
