Later, as he grew up, he was unable to get a dog because of the fact that his parents didn't want yet another animal to care for. However, he managed to sneak out and get a well-tended Golden Retriever named Randy.

Before Blue Sty
Katto was born on February 12, 2000 to Amy Polland and Dygo Ortinus in South Dakota. Around this time Willius Icefire got a prophecy saying that Katto would be the one to destroy his evil plan. Thus, Icefire sent out a man named Mr. G to hunt and kill Katto. The hunt went on for 11 years. In 2009, Katto snuck out and bought a Golden Retriever named Randy, who he hid in the vents in his room.
Katto wakes up on a Saturday and feeds his dog Randy, before a tremor shakes the room. Katto is pesterd by an evil alchemist, Willius Icefire, but before the alchemist can kill him, Basil Levus saves Katto from certain death. Basil takes Katto to Egyt, where he tells him the history of Zyaka. Afterwards, Katto changes out of his pajamas into some of Basil's clothes, which end up looking suspiciously like Icefire's: orange shirt with khaki pants. Basil interprets it as an omen.
Icefire rudely interrupts and hexes the two of them using Honomus Revelio, which places them in their worst nightmares. Katto ends up going through six of them: watching his parents die, being alone with Icefire, death, suffocation, traitorship, and being helpless.
