Significant Fights. Once, while attempting to enjoy the theater, a man named Reyes was rude to her. He sat in front of her, blocking her view. When she politely asked him to move, he threatened to slash her face with his sword. She only had a dagger at the time, so she temporarily backed down, seeking her retribution the next day.
Face Slashing. After creating a sawtoothed blade by using a whetstone, she tracked the man down. Once she found him, she slashed him in the face for the slight from the previous night. As she made her attack, she yelled: “This is the face that’s getting slashed!” He had friends who sided with him and came looking for her months later.
Killing. After putting together his group of revenge-minded friends, Reyes and his friends planned to punish Catalina but it took them a few months to find her. When the group of men found Catalina and sought to avenge their friend's scarred face, they got much more than they bargained for. Catalina killed Reyes and several of his cronies. Afterward, she ran to a nearby church and claimed sanctuary.
