Dr. Kate Corrigan was a professor of history at New York University (specializing in folklore) before she joined the B.P.R.D. in 1984 as a consultant. She wrote sixteen books on folklore and occult history, including the confessions of Isobel Gowdie. She appears in her first field mission alongside Hellboy in in May 1994. She and Hellboy investigated the mass murders in the small European village of Griart. Kate deduced that the village must be St. August and that the killings are being performed by werewolves. She encounters her first ghost on this mission.
In 1995, Kate was promoted to Director of Field Operations, a post previously held by Professor Trevor Bruttenholm and Dr. Tom Manning. She now serves as the special liaison to the 'enhanced talents' agents, or those that command superhuman abilities which include such prominent characters as Hellboy, Abe Sapien, Liz Sherman, Johann Kraus, and Benjamin Daimio amongst others.
In Kate's most dangerous mission to date was acquiring a book The Secret Flame to revive Roger the Homunculus, she was captured by an ageless marquis who wished to trade her for Roger's corpse. She was able to escape by slicing off the marquis' fingers with a knife and destroying one of his rings. The ring, belonging to King Solomon, held the demon Marchosias in thrall, so the monster allowed Kate to live while he razed the marquis' treasures and carried him off to Hell.
