Born in 2244, Cass is the daughter of John Cassidy, a companion of the Chosen One in Fallout 2, and a tribal woman he met on his travels. Her father upped and left to once more wander the wastes while she was still young - leaving her only a name, a pendant, his shooting skills and propensity for hard drinking.
Worn down by years of hard luck and a recent rash of terrible misfortunes, Cass is a despondent merchant who's about to get out of the caravan business. She's smart, tough, and steady with a gun, but hasn't been savvy enough to survive the ruthless caravan wars that have flared up in Nevada since the NCR's expansion. Though quick to join up with the player for some easy money, she's still interested in finding out if she's been suffering from bad luck or something more sinister.
In Al's reviewsEdit
Al has made it no secret that he dislikes Cass greatly (even though he secretly loves her). This is mostly because Cass is incredibly loquacious, a trait that Al finds obnoxious in NPCs. Despite this, she has appeared in quite a few reviews, more than any other companion in the core game. At the end of Rex's Funeral montage, Al shoots Cass after startling him, which decapitates her head. Al was simply annoyed that he had to perform another funeral and was not the least bit saddened when she died, like when Rex did.
- In Fallout New Vegas Mods: Another Kick in The Head - Part 6, she, along with Boone, Veronica, and other vanilla companions, appeared in a dream sequence and tried to murder Al.
