Catherine "Cathy" Ricci (キャサリン・リッチ Kyasarin Ricchi?) is a supporting character from Time Crisis 5.


Catherine has pinned brown hair and blue eyes.

Catherine wears a pink collared shirt opened on her upper chest only and covered with an army patterned 3/4 sleeved jumpsuit and dark brown short sleeved vest with a V.S.S.E. logo on her left arm. She also holds two small bags wrapped on her thighs and wears pastel blue boots with leg armors and kneepads (though only her upper body is visibly seen during cutscenes as she stays in her helicopter throughout the game and is also applicable in the final cutscene).


Catherine's main responsibility is providing air support for next-generation V.S.S.E. agents Luke O'Neil and Marc Godart (ala Elizabeth Conway from Time Crisis 4).

Notable Events

Main article: Time Crisis 5

Initially reporting to Robert Baxter (like Luke and Marc), after Keith Martin duped the next-generation agents, Luke and Marc informed Catherine about Robert's treachery in which she refused to believe. As Keith, Luke, and Marc fought drudges drugged by a narcotic stolen by Robert, Catherine could not find such mission Keith failed three years ago, resulting that Robert wants to erase V.S.S.E. entirely (including V.S.S.E. data).

During the final fight against Robert, Catherine attacks him by ramming the Sikorsky UH-60 helicopter against the missile containing the drug and lets her fall down while telling them to take Robert down. After Robert was killed, Catherine was thought to be killed as well, but she eventually survived by swimming out of sinking helicopter, joining Luke, Marc, and Keith to a nearby quiet island.

  • During the mission, Luke is the one who always connected with her.
  • In the Japanese version, Catherine is always addressed in her full first name and never addressed as being Cathy. Though this is not the case with Elizabeth Conway from the previous game, who is still addressed as being Beth in the Japanese version.
  • Both Catherine and Rachel MacPherson are the franchise's female characters that wear pants instead of a skirt.
  • Catherine transports Luke and Marc, just like Alicia Winston transports Alan and Wesley in Time Crisis 3.
