Catherine and Gabriel met one day and began to see each other quite frequently. When he asked her to marry him, she ignored the warning signs and said yes. Shortly after they are married, he died somewhat mysteriously. Being his wife, she became entangled in the mystery, not trusting anyone in his family. She formed a friendship with her late husband's cousin, Simon. She didn't fully trust Simon but she realized she didn't have a choice.
