Katarina wears brown framed sunglasses with orange tinted lenses, has long dark brown hair, plump lips and tanned skin. She is wearing a gold necklace with a turquoise colored gem and strands of gold hanging from it. She is sporting an ensemble that consists of a long, ivory colored jacket with light green lace detailing along the front collar. The left sleeve has a crochet-scalloped hem and has peacock feather designs on the back at the tail. She is also wearing shiny brown, fingerless leather gloves with metal, square-shaped rings with a dark heart detail on each finger.
Exposed is her black leather bra with brown and white stripes on the straps and on the banding where a gold button is in the middle. There must be black holsters attached to the sides of her bra since there are two small pistols with brown handles within their holsters under each arm. She has a small tattoo of a red heart with tiny vines around it beneath her belly button. She is visibly wearing a black lame thong. On top, she is wearing white, belted pants with a brown, blue-green and tan striped pattern. Instead of having a zipper closure, there is a corset styled looping with ivory lacing replacing the latter. Finally, she is wearing white heels with brown soles.
She can also be customized to remove her brown framed sunglasses, being knocked into the ground by Gigas while her sunglasses are knocked off in his ending and she removes it in her ending where you can see her brown eyes.
In the console version and both Gigas and her ending, Katarina's long hair is depicted as light auburn rather than brown.
Some of her customizations has her wearing revealing short dresses, long vests, long sleeve midriffs, a modified shoulder holsters, long formal gloves, mid-arm gloves, denim pants, business skirts, leather shoes, thigh high boots and high heels from her primary outfit but without the brown soles. She also wears headbands, magician hats and frame glasses.
From what is known so far, Katarina is stated to be a "sassy mouthed and vocal" talker due to her past losing her parents. However, she show some respect towards her adoptive father, who recently disappeared and became of G Corporation's brainwashed mutated human, Gigas.
Katarina Alves lost both her parents at a young age, and spent several years at an orphanage before being adopted by a man she'd never met. Initially, Katarina rebelled against him using a whole manner of profane language, but the man's kindness and patience eventually wore her hard exterior down. In time, they grew close, though her penchant for profane language remained. One day, Katarina's adoptive father vanished. As much as she wanted to find him, she lacked the money to do so. But then she learned of the King of Iron Fist Tournament.
The savate techniques the man had taught her gave Katarina hope that she could win and take the cash prize. The day of the first match arrived, and the arena was none other than the roof of G Corporation's Millennium Tower.
When Katarina first laid eyes on her opponent, all she saw was an enormous hulk of muscle. There was no way he could be human...
Ending Description: Katarina finally defeats Gigas in battle as she quickly removes her brown framed sunglasses to face Gigas who easily noticed Katarina's presence. When it was raining, one of the G Corporation soldiers manages to shoot her but it grazed her shoulder. When she is about to be gunned down by one of the G Corporation soldier, Gigas defends her by blocking most of the soldier's rapid fire much to her surprise as he tackles the soldier down and plummet into the edge below. Katarina finally realizes that enormous hulk of monster who defends her was actually her missing adoptive father.
From the information known so far, Katarina is a "beginner friendly" character in terms of gameplay.
Katarina fights using Savate, the French variant on kickboxing. Savate translates to "old shoe", as practitioners are allowed to wear shoes during a kickboxing match. Savate focuses primarily on foot kicking techniques that require great flexibility, whilst utilizing punching combinations and other techniques as a sidenote. Unlike other kickboxing styles like Muay Thai, Savate is mostly foot-orientated and is not known for its knee attacks. A popular move for Savate is the chasse bas, in which a practitioner drives his/her foot into the opponents upper leg, causing the most damage by impacting the kick with their heel.
- When Katarina was first officially announced, her name was misunderstood by many as "Catalina" due to transliteration issues.
- She is the third Brazilian fighter in the Tekken series, the other two being Eddy Gordo and Christie Monteiro.
