Pre-Birth and Early YearsEdit
Cassandra was born to an upper-middle class small family who probably spoiled her, possibly laying the foundation for her greedy, hot-tempered personality later on in life.
When Cassandra was a young child, her mother became horribly sick. To perserve Cassie's own health, her father sent her to a prim aunt. Due to the panic, Cassie was underinformed, and drew her own conclusions: Mother was dying, Father didn't want her anymore. Especially after the aunt started to act like a mother, trying to teach Cassandra in her own strict and uptight ideals of being a lady, Cassandra stopped thinking of her Mother and Father as such and thought of herself as an orphan, and lashed out at any opportunity.
After Cassandra behaved particularly nastily at her aunt's best friend's engagement party, the aunt sent her away to a boarding school in Champs Les Sims where it was like a million aunts surrounding her perpetually. She couldn't understand a bit of it, not the lessons, not the rules, not why they had all these nice things and no one used them. Quietly she began to liberate these things and put them to good use--mainly, decoration in her dormatory. Even so, she didn't think she could stand having to spend part of her adulthood in the school as well.
During the annual ceremony for the new years, Cassandra sneaked away and took a decorative sword from a suit of armor. Grabbing all she thought she could take, she then stealthy went up to the balcony around the auditorium and cut down the sandbags and curtains, causing confusion below. With a yell of, "Goodnight, sperks!" she set fire to the stage and made her escape, stowing away on a ship bound for young, small fishing town called Bridgeport.
In Bridgeport she met a con man/pickpocket named Louis Etinson. Unbeknownst to her, he soon fell head over heels for her, and when she blatantly declared at a saloon that she was going to take the nearest cross-country stagecoach to whatever town she liked and found first, he got on board the ridiculous journey too. Towards the end of their journey, when the swelling town of Sunset Valley was in sight, she swiped a gun from the driver and proceeded to, on a whim, rob the coach. It didn't go off well, as many other passengers were armed, and she was shot in the leg before being arrested. Louis persuaded the jailer to let him tend to her leg, and while they sat in her cell together, they whispered plans of escape, though Louis couldn't have known what he was getting into.
When the town was asleep, Louis woke from a pretend sleep on a bench outside of the cells. Cassandra had convinced him not to make the plan as subtle as he wanted to; she said there was no point to a subtle escape if you wanted glory. He grabbed the chair from the desk of the jailer, then proceeded to beat him to unconsciousness without the man ever getting out of his cot. Stealing the keys from the jailer, he unlocked Cassie's cell, who then took a pistol from the jailers trunk and shot everyone there--visitor, jailer, or prisoner. After stealing all the money in the place, they bolted out of the prison and caught a stagecoach to the booming gold town of Lucky Palms.
In Lucky Palms Cassie discovered her love for gambling, and also a great skill for it. However, she soon became obsessed with winning and shot anyone who beat her, insisting that the "son of a sperk cheated", which was often the case. In one such occasion, she was about to shoot the man in question when another man, Santiago Castillo, stood up and pointed his own revolver at her. A fight insued, and when Santiago was winded due to his crashing into a staircase Cassie said, "This man owes you his life. So I'll shoot him rather than you...Or you can come work for me." Naturally Santiago accepted the latter offer, and the first thing he was told to do was to help steal three horses off of a man's ranch. On those horses they moved on to another town: Appaloosa Plains.
In this small ranching town Cassie quickly became bored. They only had Spline Reticulators in the one saloon in town, which was little more than a shed. The only games they had were chess. The standard pastime was drinking tea and discussing horses. Cassie's interest in this place, though, was because it was where her parents had lived and she was plotting a little arson and robbery. Little did she know she was being watched by the law, specifically a deputy named Joel Ammity who had seen her wanted poster floating around. To Cassie's disappointment her parents no longer lived in town, so she moved on, and Joel received permission to follow her because he was almost certain that it was her.
