K'tana's father is Toros, a Vulcan Ambassador to Bolian Prime and her mother is Milar, a Klingon Ambassador also on Vulcan. K'tana is the only child of Milar & Toros, but she does have one half-brother Seth from her fathers first wife who is now deceased. Due to job requirements the family lived on both Betazed and Earth while K'tana was growing up.
While K'tana was at the Academy she married Betazoid Gerald Reese and the two briefly served together on the USS Neptune & then the USS Intrepid where Gerald was promoted to LT. Commander. While on the Intrepid K'tana gave birth to the couples only child Ashton Jonas Reese on June 20. Unfortunately, the marriage only lasted 6 months longer. Shortly before Ashton's birth Lt. Commander Reese was made a commander and second officer. The Reese's marriage was already on shaky ground and the joyous birth of Ashton could not save it. Two months after his birth K'tana was granted a divorce from Commander Reese. She continued to serve on board for another year before requesting a transfer. Due to Ashton's age and the duties of Commander Reese the couple agreed that he would be better off living with K'tana but he saw his father whenever possible. Her daughter currently lives on earth splitting her time between her parents who retired in the south of France and her in-laws.
