Ohmygoodness... I love my two little girls, but it is SO GOOD to have my body back! I can go running again! I can dance! Freedom!
Still wondering a little as to how Spencer came out on top this year. But just going to put it down to my general aura of awesome. Definitely a nice extra high note to finish off the school year and my school life. ❤️
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.
A noticeable feature of the redhead's is not only the blood red hue of her hair, but if one takes the time to look closely, is the strange colouring of her eyes, which appears more like rings of colour, with a bright gold at the centre around the pupils, which blends along to become bright green as the outer ring of her irises, the colour between being a strange blending and shimmering of the two colours.
Loves friends and spending time having fun with them, especially outdoors. Though she's had a difficult time in keeping them, mostly because of moving around so much when younger, and because she was always 'strange'. She tries to be friendly though, and is protective of those who stick around.
As protective of her family as they might be of her, and not just her blood family, but those she's become close to since moving to Australia.
She never really dated much at all, and then met Alex and they kind of just 'clicked', and ended up eloping only months after dating. She's nuts in love with him.
Prefers to avoid the whole 'drama' stuff, but isn't afraid to confront those who have something to say about her or anyone she's close to.
Cassandra was born to (what she'd grown up believing were) a pair of wizards back in '99 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 psychic talents (which her aunt and father carried) rather than physical, 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 under their bed, bespelled by her mother 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 Cass prepared to hopefully get through little more than the require semester so that she could focus on her future. Though, since moving she became more confused about what it is she really wants. To be an Auror because of her past? Is it still her calling, or is her love for performance too strong to ignore?
Such a question haunted her all through her year, though mostly in the background since meeting Alexander Winfield, who would become her husband during the first term holidays, after their whirlwind trip to Las Vegas. Having met at the start of the year, they quickly bonded over their experiences which were different and yet similar in some ways. This led to them quickly falling for one another and with the death of Alex's father, he was invited to live with Cass and Caitlin. The mischievous duo have since created a small Production label for their Youtube focuses, and Cait set up a studio for them to use as well.
Changes that Cass had been undergoing since late last year came to a head, however, when she started finding herself severely allergic to cast and cold iron, and it was revealed by her aunt soon after that the girl was in fact full-blooded fae, rather than half, that they'd thought. Her mother had been full blooded Sidhe, and the fae blood had dominated over any kind of mortal blood fully. As such, she had been adjusting slowly, trying to learn more about her kind.
Only for her world to be rocked again during Alexander's acceptance, when she found out that her own grandmother was the Sorceress who had been Alex's guardian angel for all his life, bringing up a great many questions regarding the rest of her family - especially her father's state and whether he could actually be brought back from 'death'.
