This is kind of why I support things like Helios> Eric and Katie. Say what you will about Kai, but other characters actually have an opinion of Helios which makes him less bland in my book. All Eric has is Kamilla and Katie Isotov (well other than a distaste for Morgan though that's so common it doesn't count for much). Other than that it's a pretty big list of Neutrals. Cess would have that problem too I guess, mainly because he hasn't talked to many people.
Note that you don't necessarily have to interact with people to do this. A fair number of people have opinions of Isotov who have never talked to him.
If Katie's reason for not being in Bottom is Isotov that's not very good. Aiya has a person which she has a lot of development with (and which is also a lot more plausible), but she's low because that's all she has. I see Katie much the same way now.
On second thought, I'd probably support Isotov>Damian. I'm not big on Katie or the monologues, but they do help make his character more interesting.
Edit: I think this recent interaction made Katie a little more interesting IMO, fine with current position.
