Sati was an exile that was created without a purpose by programs Rama-Kandra and Kamala. The Oracle, who protected Sati after she was smuggled into the Matrix, believed that the child would someday have a large impact on the future of both humans and the Machines.
Saved from DeletionEdit
Because Sati was created without a purpose, she was born an exile and would have been scheduled for deletion if the Machines found out that she existed. However, after consulting the Oracle on how to save their daughter, Rama-Kandra and Kamala made a deal with the Merovingian to smuggle her into the Matrix by offering the termination code for the Oracle's outer shell. The Oracle promised to watch over the child after Rama-Kandra and Kamala left the Matrix. The Oracle allowed the deal to go ahead as she believed that Sati was important.
Meeting at Mobil AvenueEdit
They met Neo while he was in Mobil Avenue. Sati was the first to speak to him when he woke up. She explained to Neo where he was and said that they cannot leave this location unless the Trainman allows them to. Rama-Kandra then calls Sati to him, not wanting her to disturb Neo any further. During Neo and Rama-Kandra's conversation, Rama-Kandra explains that he and his wife Kamala had to try and save Sati from deletion as she was created out of love and without a purpose. Going through Mobil Avenue was the only way to bring her daughter into the Matrix without the Machines knowing about it.
The Trainman arrived to pick up Sati and her family and take them into the Matrix. As she and her family entered the train, the Trainman did not allow Neo on board and threatened Rama-Kandra that he will be left behind if he helps him. Rama-Kandra, having no choice but to leave Neo, boards the train and enters the Matrix with his family.
After the train dropped off Sati in the Matrix, she was brought to the Oracle's apartment to be in her care. Neo, after escaping Mobil Avenue with the help of Trinity, Morpheus, and Seraph, met Sati again at the Oracle's apartment, where she was baking cookies with her. Once Neo arrived, the Oracle told Sati to be with Seraph while she speaks with Neo.
After Neo leaves, Sati returned to finish baking the cookies with the Oracle and took some in a bag with Seraph. As Sati and Seraph were leaving the apartment complex, the lights within the hallway began to turn off and were soon followed by Smiths. Trying to escape, Seraph and Sati entered an apartment room only to have the Smiths find them. Sati tells a Smith that he is a bad man before being assimilated by them.
A New DawnEdit
After Neo's final battle with Smith, the Matrix was reloaded once again. All those that were assimilated by Smith were returned to their original states. Sati awoke next to a black cat and was eventually discovered by Seraph. Both of them approached the Oracle, who was sitting at a bench in a park overlooking Mega City. The three of them looked at the sunrise that Sati has created in honor of Neo. She asked the Oracle if they will ever see him again, to which the Oracle replied that she believes they will.
