Katherine Pastoria was the queen of Oz prior to the Wizard's accession as ruler. She was the wife of Samuel Pastoria and the mother of Ozma.


Katherine Pastoria gave birth to a daughter, Ozma, with her husband Samuel.[1]

After the Wizard's accession to the throne, he charged his right hand, Eamonn, to kill both Katherine and Samuel. She attempted to protect herself with her daughter's emerald dagger, but to no avail.[1]
