Her employers' daughter, November Terra, once owned a Siamese cat named Pip which didn't get along with anyone other than November. Eventually the family had to get rid of the cat, which they did by giving it to Rebeka. November held great affection for the cat, and visited Rebeka (in order to see Pip) as often as was socially proper.
Her affiliation got her killed, caught up in a terrorist raid on the family. However, she died along with her attackers, accidentally killed by an unregistered telepath.
