-- remembers her parents' murders vividly
-- is a metamorphmagus
-- when she was fifteen she was diagnosed with Hyperventilation Syndrome. This causes her to suffer dizzy spells whenever she's overly excited, nervous, happy, or other causes for her to breathe faster which reduced effective delivery of oxygen to her vital organs. She calls it the 'exciteable giddies'.
-- prefers shapeshifting into a ginger cat to sneak around
-- she's the niece of the school counselor
-- is a dancer (ballet, modern, hip hop)
Wildcat, pocket rocket, little bundle of constant energy and amusement, there's a reason she needed to take up dancing to burn some of that energy. All those could be used to describe the girl who was born to an Irish father and English mother. Outgoing, playful, and unabashedly flirty, it's almost impossible to miss the presence of the young woman when she's in a room, though mostly because she's often generally just trying to get smiles or laughs out of others. It'd be impossible to know that she'd been witness to tragedy at all unless you really knew her or were aware of her history, as she often just wants to make sure that others feel good.
That said, the young woman has little to no shame, and will flirt with guys she thinks are cute if she's in the mood for being cheeky, or if they blush easily. She is also an adventure seeker, someone who will almost always pick 'dare', and yet can flawlessly pull off a look of complete innocence, as well as quickly think up cover stories that would even fool her aunt if Caitlin wasn't so good at what she does.
Beneath the fun, cheeky and social exterior there are a lot of issues and fears, but she tries to fight against those, vowing that she is going to follow in her aunt's footsteps and become someone who will help others and bring bad people to justice. Of course, this also means that she may find herself in the odd scrap now and then if she thinks someone's being a bully. She's not someone who can just stand by and watch.
Standing at a staggering 5'2, this redhead doesn't let her height hold her back from anything. In fact, she tends to use it to her advantage when and wherever possible. It is especially effective when she is able to change her expression so well and convincingly to that of innocence or sadness. She is quite expressive, and usually people will know how she's feeling by looking at her, however.
As far as clothing goes, Cassandra tends to prefer wearing whatever she feels like, and will adjust her school uniform so that it at least looks a bit stylish. Whether that means shortening the skirt, wearing thigh high socks, and making sure the shirt sits nicely on her figure, well, at least she's wearing the colours? She usually lets her hair rest over her shoulders and back, and tends to wear something with a heel so that she has a little height. She walks with an almost bouncy strut in her step, shoulders straight and head held high.
Cassandra was born to a pair of wizards back in '98 and love was never something that the household was short on, especially since she had not only very loving parents but also a young aunt who doted on her dearly like nothing else.
Perhaps they'd thought she would end up with her father's family's talents (which her aunt and father carried), but the name of the oracle was given to her nonetheless, and no one could imagine Cass with any other. She thrived in early childhood, making friends easily, always ready to leap at one of the others in the household for hugs, or even just to sit or lie on them.
Life was wonderful for the girl, she loved every part of it and couldn't imagine it not always being that way for as long as she lived.
At least until her parents were taken tragically from her, right before her eyes while she hid in a closet, bespelled by her father so that the intruders wouldn't find the little girl.
It would have perhaps broken the girl completely if not for the aunt who took her in and provided her with all the love and care that she possibly could, in order to try and keep Cass afloat. She had lost two of her most beloved people in her life, but she still had one. And she would make sure that she never lost that remaining most special person.
Though she may have seemed too young to notice what Cate was doing, she was quite switched on and observant and the only thing that got her caught when she was snooping around was if her aunt managed to peek in on her thoughts.
Of course, things changed a little when Cassandra was accepted to Hogwarts and didn't get to spend as much time at home anymore, but she did enjoy the new school environment, making new friends, learning more about magic, which she decided would help her in being able to assist her aunt in years to come. She excelled in DADA, and when not in school, she substituted her 'smallness' with taking up Mixed Martial Arts, and excelling at it as well, very quickly.
Cass became intrigued with her aunt's work, even though the older woman tried to keep her niece from learning too much about what she did at such a young age. But Cassandra was growing up fast, and her teenage years brought rebellion and mischief as she started breaking into Cate's office to read through some of her work, not to mention when her aunt became a bestselling author, from solving the crime that had caused them both grief, it was impossible to keep Cass from reading it.
As far as she was concerned, the grisly details didn't matter. What mattered to Cass was that her aunt was doing good. She was solving crime and bringing bad guys to justice, and to her - the girl who now hero worshiped the older woman - it made her some kind of amazing role model to look up to and want to be like.
That was how Cassandra decided that she was going to fight crime, right wrongs, catch the bad guys and help the innocent. She wasn't stupid of course. She knew that she would have to study hard, and make sure that she did well in required subjects to become an Auror or investigator. The only thing that really got in her way was the fact that she tended to get a little hotheaded when it came to bullying or people doing something that would hurt others. She got herself into fights a few times.
And then in what was supposed to be her last year of school, she and Caitlin found themselves in danger while she was visiting home, and they were forced to go into hiding and on the run while those after them were being tracked down. This cost Cass a lot of her grades and meant that she was going to have to do an extra semester or so of study.
Apparently that study was going to be in a whole different country as well, as the women moved to Australia. And so now Cass prepares to hopefully get through little more than the require semester so that she can focus on her future. Of course, that doesn't mean she can't have a little fun while she's at it.
