Cassia was born the first born child of Calidus Virtus the alpha of a luperci town on the coast of Britain. The culture of the town was loosely based on that of the ancient Roman Empire due to a particular obsession of the pack’s long dead founders being obsessed with old human histories of the Roman empire. The town had grown from a single pack up to a thriving coastal metropolis with a definitive class system from the commoners all the way up to the nobility. Though technically the leaders were elected, most often those elected were from the higher social classes and were often elected for multiple terms. As the first born child of the current town ruler, Cassia was groomed from an early age to be a proper member of the nobility. Her father had no sons to carry on his line at the time so he saw to it that she was trained in all aspects of society, such as literature, politics, etiquette and even combat. Calidus Virtus, her father, was not simply a high class elected official, but also a leader in the local military. As such Cassia was trained to fight from the second month of her life and onward. When she learned to shift she was taught swordsmanship and archery but mostly for self defense as her father forbade her from fighting in the military against neighboring clans and packs. Her skills in archery and combat also refined her hunting ability at an early age and she was renowned among the nobility as a huntress, often bringing numerous kills for her father’s feasts and lavish social gatherings.
On the eve of her first birthday Cassia was to attend a feast in her honor to be attended by all of the town’s upper class, but the party was not to be. In the few months prior to her birthday rumors had been spreading of civil unrest coming from the commoners. Those rumors came to fruition in a good, old-fashioned coups run by one of the captains of the guard, followed by a hundred or so angry villagers. In the commotion Cassia was found by the traitorous captain, captured, but not harmed. Even having been raised as a noble, Cassia was well loved by the townspeople who often saw her returning from her hunts and other activities in the surrounding countryside. She was held prisoner until the night’s events had finished with the imprisonment or slaying of the nobles. Her father had been slain by the leader of the rebellion to appease the clamor of the angry mob he had stirred up. Cassia was then exiled, for despite the love of the townspeople the new ruling class feared that she would be able to cause an uprising of her own.
She was ordered onto a ship bound for New England region of North America and thus wound up dumped on a foreign shore with naught but what she wore and carried with her. She made her way up the coast, stopping at any areas where civilized luperci could be found and heard tell of the packs of ‘Souls. Her need of a new home drove her to seek out these packs to try and find one where she would be able to start a new life, away from her upbringing and the troubles she had escaped
She is often calm and collected, kind to those who are kind to her and severe to those that prey upon others. She abhors prejudice having been raised in a town where it ran rampant especially in her own family. She is a bit of a loner, but only because she has never had any genuine friendships. When she lets her guard down, the calm, collected façade she paints fade to that of a sweet, gentle girl. When angered she burns like an inferno, nearly uncontrollable until she gets calmed down. Fortunately it takes a lot to anger her to this point and she fears the potential severity of her anger. She is a very deep person, often taking time to ponder the great questions of life. One can often find her alone in thought with a smile on her face or a furrowed brow.
