Directory: Characters → Namekian Katas (カタッツ) was an ancient Namekian and the father of the Nameless Namekian, who later separated into Kami and King Piccolo. He was thus the grandfather of Piccolo Jr.
According to Grand Elder Guru's words, Katas was a genius. He was a good parent, who saved his son. Although Katas was good like all Namekians, his son was partly evil due to being in contact with evil Humans on Earth and divided into the evil King Piccolo and good Kami.
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.
- Katas' name pun is based on the Japanese word Katatsumuri, meaning "snail". The second part of the word is used for Moori's name pun.
