*Who Is She?
Cassidy is painfully aware that she's not what most people would call pretty, but this has caused her to always work extra hard because of it. She knows that a Queen is the heart of the land and the people, and she pushes herself more than anyone else pushes her to make sure she lives up to these responsibilities. Cassidy is not ambitious for herself, but she can be very ambitious for the people that serve her or the land. She is usually the first one to fight for the underdog and the last one to try to claim anything for herself. She is very self-conscious and in personal matters she is not the most confident. Being a good Queen is very important to her -- as is proving to everyone else that she is. Unfortunately, in doing this, she sometimes endangers herself by going too far. She wears one of the lighter Jewels so is often outranked, but she still does her best to take care of those around her. She will always be one of the first people to step up to help out in anything and one of the last people to walk away after everything is done. Cassidy is a very caring person who will often go out of her way to help people. She is a diplomatic person and will always try to weigh every side in a conflict.
She has very pale skin, unruly red hair, hazel eyes and freckles all over. The kindest way that she has been described as is "homely". One of the most unkind ways she has been described is "the spotted draft horse of Queens." Cassidy is painfully aware that she's not pretty, but this has caused her to always work extra hard because of it. She either wears her hair up in a messy bun or has it in a braid if she can manage it. However, there are times that it just seems wild and unkempt. She sometimes prefers boy's clothes because of her desire to work as hard as she can, but she will dress up when the situation calls for it. According to her, the situation doesn't call for it very often.
*Skills and Powers
Cassidy is Birthright Tiger Eye and she will descend to Rose when she makes the Offering to the Darkness.
Skills: Cassidy has an older brother who she has often wrestled and fought with, so she has some skills for hand to hand fighting. She also is a very adept gardener as she feels such a connection to the land that working in a garden often helps soothe her when she is stressed and worried.
Weapons: She has a basic understanding of how to use a knife, but she's more likely to attack with a garden implement or one of her father's carpentry tools.

Cassidy is coming in pre-canon. She hasn't met anyone in the Dark Court, besides her cousin, Aaron, and she hasn't made her Offering to the Darkness as of yet. She's going to miss her parents very much, but her mother found out about Fandom and thinks it might be the type of school that will bring her daughter out of her shell and prepare her for the day she becomes the Queen of a a village or town in Dharo. For Cassidy's part, she really doesn't want to leave home to go to school. She's happy at home working in her mother's gardens. She's not leaving a bad situation at home, but she has heard about a lot of the bad things going on in other places and how Queens and witches are being hurt. Her mother is hoping that this school can help protect Cassidy and teach her things to keep herself safe until she is old enough to make the Offering.

|She stopped in the doorway and looked at him as if she suddenly saw a different man.|
“You don’t have a feel for the land, do you?” she asked. “It’s just dirt and boundaries to you.”
“I don’t fuss over it like you and Gray seem to,” he said dismissively. “It’s the people that matter. It’s the people that need tending.”
“How do you take care of one without taking care of the other?”
