Catherine Ricci (キャサリン・リッチ, Kyasarin Ricchi) (sometimes called Cathy by name) is the supporting character from Time Crisis 5.
Catherine is voiced by Hiroko Ushida (牛田 裕子, Ushida Hiroko) in Japanese, and by Soness Stevens in English.
Cathy has pinned brown hair and blue eyes.
Cathy wears a pink collared shirt opened on her upper chest only and covered with an army patterned 3/4 sleeved jumpsuit and dark brown short sleeved vest with a V.S.S.E. logo on her left arm. She also holds two small bags wrapped on her thighs and wears pastel blue boots with leg armors and kneepads (though only her upper body is visibly seen during cutscenes as she stays in her helicopter throughout the game and is also applicable in the final cutscene).
Initially reporting to Robert Baxter (like Luke and Marc), after Keith Martin duped the next-generation agents, Luke and Marc informed Cathy about Robert's treachery in which she refused to believe. As Keith, Luke, and Marc fought drudges drugged by a narcotic stolen by Robert, Cathy couldn't find such mission Keith failed three years ago, resulting that Robert wants to erase V.S.S.E. entirely (including V.S.S.E. data).
During the final fight against Robert, she attacks him by ramming the Sikorsky UH-60 helicopter against the missile containing the drug and lets her fall down while telling them to take Robert down. After Robert was killed, Catherine was thought to be killed as well, but she eventually survived by swimming out of sinking helicopter, joining Luke, Marc, and Keith to a nearby quiet island.

|“||Huh? What are you talking about?! Luke? Marc?||„|
|~ Catherine Ricci, surprised when the V.S.S.E. agents tell her that Robert is the traitor|
|“||Robeeeeerrrrtt! (After ramming missile away from aircraft) [Robert: Hah!] Take Robert down!||„|
|~ Catherine Ricci, attempting to prevent the missile launch by ramming the UH-60 helicopter against it|
|“||This whole mess is because of you!||„|

- During the mission, Luke is the one who always connected with her.
- In the Japanese version, Catherine is always addressed in her full first name and never addressed as being Cathy. Though this is not the case with Elizabeth Conway from the previous game, who is still addressed as being Beth in the Japanese version.
- Both Catherine and Rachel MacPherson are the franchise's female characters that wear pants instead of a skirt.
- Catherine transports Luke and Marc, just like Alicia Winston transports Alan and Wesley in Time Crisis 3.
