Cathy Smith is a female alien from outer space, specifically the far-off planet Rhapsodia. She comes to Earth with her grandfather, in order to restart the age-old society: the Monster Buster Club. She is the Pink Monster Buster of the team, and one of the team's two female members, alongside Sam.
- This is indicated by several sources in and out of the show:
- Dancing in the Dark mentions she took an exam 200 years ago.
- In Dog Daze she is indicated to have acquired an allergy 250 years ago,
- She turns "sweet 700" (presumably in Rhapsodian years) on her birthday in The New Recruits. Implied to be the human equivalent of 16 due to the phrase "sweet sixteen."
- Her profile at http://www.monsterbusterclub.tv/english/index.html mentions
- She looks like a 12 year-old Earthling
- She is actually 250 years old
- On the Rhapsodia age scale she is only a teenager (13-19)
This means that 5 Earth years are probably about 14 Rhapsodian years.
When Cathy comes to earth, she takes on a human form. In this form, Cathy has right-sided curved blonde hair, blue eyes and a slightly tanned skin complexion. She typically wears a long-sleeved pink top under a green sweater that reaches just down to her abdomen, with her sleeves rolled up to her forearms. Cathy also wears pink pants with matching pink socks and pink converse. Cathy also accessorizes her hair with beads that keep her hair in its normal style. these beads are pink and green, as seems to be the theme throughout Cathy's outfit.
