Katheryn Riviera was born in Athans, Greece in May of 2057, however very soon after her parents received a contract from Aztechnology and soon the family moved to Tenochtitlan where they took up a very comfortable corporate apartment in the Aztechnology HQ. Katheryn was never exceptional in school, she was smart and driven, yes, but she didn't have the same fervor that many of those who had been born into the corporation had. She eventually became a member of Aztechnology's Cybercrimes division, taking on the name "Aphrodite" as an homage to her Greek heritage. Though was stuck in the mid-level position without any sort of forward momentum until late January where a bout of unstable mana travelling nearby a leyline forcibly Awakened her, granting her magical abilities and a way of advancing within the Awakened-central ranks of Aztechnology.

However after an incident some time ago, she lost her contract with Aztechnology and found out that she was being pursued by The Pantheon. She has since tried to hide out in Denver, but has recently moved to Seattle to try her hand at Shadowrunning.
