History: Caitlin was a former Secret Service Special Agent, she was hand picked to protect the President. She broke the rules by dating a co-worker, and choose to resign, before she was fired. NCIS Special Agent Gibbs made a fast move and hired Caitlin right after she resigned.
Her relationship with Gibbs was interesting to watch-he was her mentor and she could become a great agent.There was real warmth between those two characters, even when they were sniping at each other.
Kate and Tony were always bickering like a couple of school kids or brother and sister; and yet they were really fond of each other as we saw, with Tony towards her in the Ari episodes, and Kate towards Tony when he got infected with bubonic plague through a letter and they were forced to be in quarantine together until it was found out which of the two were infected. Kate was upset when she found out that it was Tony and that he might die. This could have led to a promising relationship - albeit an argumentative one - if Kate had not died,althought that can be seen like true concern for a friend-that's a human nature-to be concern for a friend in danger.
Kate was also Roman Catholic and in many ways a bit prudish, due to her strict upbringing. That said, she was the winner of a wet t-shirt contest in 1994, which Tony found hilarious.
Not much is known about Kate's family, but she did say she had a cousin named Maureen Ingalls (Left for Dead).
She enjoyed working in the NCIS team although she was a bit surprised to find herself bending rules like Gibbs and Tony to get the information they needed to trap some suspect or other.
Kate had had an opportunity to kill Ari when he broke into the NCIS autopsy lab, and shot Gerald, but found that she was unable to do so because of the look in his eyes. When she was about to stab him with a scalpel - Gibbs read her the riot act for this.
Kate and Tony used to gang up on McGee and tease the poor lad painfully, although he eventually realized it was just part of being a probie.
Tony used to nose through Kate's personal effects including her mobile, PDA and even rubbish, which used to really nark her.
Gibbs: "I heard you quit, Agent Todd.
Kate: "Happy news gets around fast, yes I resigned that was the right thing to do."
Gibbs: "Yep, pull that crap at NCIS, I wont give you a chance to resign."
Kate: "Is that a job offer?"
(Gibbs gets in a car with a red head, and drives away)
Kate then joins the NCIS team for 2 seasons.
