Kate Connors is the sister of Mirror's Edge protagonist, Faith (Connors). Kate is the straight laced member of the family, and is a police officer, in contrast to her sister's "outlaw" ways. She plays a central role in the plot of the game, but little is seen of her as she is in the background of the story. Little is revealed about Kate and Faith's history, but it is known that the two once were close to one another years ago.
We first meet Kate Connors early in Mirror's Edge, as Faith sees Kate briefly in the office of Robert Pope. The contrast between Kate and her sister are striking. Kate is in law enforcement, is serious, and believes in the system. She's dressed smartly in police attire and sports a ponytail.
