Katas lived on planet Namek before Age 261 and belonged to the Dragon Clan during a time period when different classes of Namekians were more common, and when Namek had knowledge of higher technology such as space travel.
In Age 261, a massive climate shift took place on Namek. Katas managed to save his son by sending him off to planet Earth in a Namekian spaceship before dying along with almost all of the other living Namekians. The only survivor of this was Guru, who gradually restored the population.
