She was also raised by her father to be a baseball fan.
Beckett went to Stuyvesant High School, a public school in New York City reserved for highly gifted students.
When Beckett's learns that her literary alter-ego will be named "Nikki Heat", she disapproves of the "stripper name" and asks Castle to change it, which he declines to do, and the title of his first book is also unveiled, 'Heat Wave', which has a sexual connotation to it.
In episode 9, Beckett's past is further revealed when a former love interest, FBI Agent Will Sorenson, returns to New York and requests Beckett's assistance on a kidnapping case.
It is revealed in the episode by Sorenson that Beckett once waited in line for an hour just to get one of Castle's books signed, and also how his novels helped her through her mother's death.
In the first season finale, Beckett angrily refuses Castle's help in reopening her mother's murder investigation - having concluded, after conducting her own investigations upon joining the force, that focusing on her mother's death would destroy her life - stating that if Castle interferes, it will end his police collaboration with her.
The two discover that the killer was actually Allison's brother, setting up a mentally ill client of his sister - a social worker - so that he could claim the majority of their father's estate, due to his father suffering from terminal cancer.
By the end of the pilot, Castle uses his friendship with the Mayor to get partnered with Beckett, under the pretense of conducting research for a new series of novels, starring a detective based on Beckett.
Katherine Houghton Beckett was born to Jim and Johanna Beckett on November 17, 1979. Her grandfather was an amateur magician and frequently brought her to the famous Drake's Magic Shop after school in her early teens, resulting in her fascination of the art.
From then on, she has since worn her mother's wedding ring as a neck lace for "the life she lost" and her father's watch, an Omega Speedmaster Professional, a.k.a. On the other hand, her mother's death inspired Beckett to become a cop: to be a detective that actually looks for justice for the sake of the victims' families for the right reasons without 'pigeon-holing' crimes the way Detective Raglan did on her mother's case.
Other than that, she also wanted a position in the force where she could investigate her mother's death further.
She then studied pre-law at Stanford, dreaming of becoming the first female Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, before transferring to New York University after her mother's death to pursue a career in law enforcement.
Between her junior and senior year of college, she spent a semester studying in Kiev, Ukraine.
