Backstory:
Childhood

Cassie Newman was born in Silverton, Oregon on February 25th, 2279 to Richard and Frederica Newman. Her father was a priest for the local church congregation. It would be two years after Cassie's birth that her younger sister, Mary Newman, and a year later their youngest sister, Lynn Newman, would also be born. From a very young age, she and her sisters were taught by their mother and father to be caring of others, and to have a good set of morals, and often kept them in line with the Christian faith. All throughout their childhood, the church would be involved in some aspect; Baptism, Sunday mass, preschool care under the church, even private, religious elementary schools were involved. But there would be one factor that remained outside the strict, Christian faith. Frederica's sister, Elena Linde, would often visit the family, and would take her nieces out to see the world, from the calm beaches with the lighthouse in view outside of town, or the blissfully busy, yet chaotic city of Portland, Cassie would always be fascinated with all the sights and sounds of places where they went. It wasn't until Cassie was 9 that Elena gave Cass a way to express her visions of beauty and grace, with her first set of pencils, erasers, and her first sketchbook. With her new gift, and an art instructional book that she borrowed from the library, Cass began to develop her skill and talent as a sketch artist and an illustrator. By the time she was 14, her talent would pay off, as she soon gets accepted to a nationally prestigious art school in Arcadia Bay, Oregon, Blackwell Academy. From there, her life would change.
Teenage life
Cass would begin to dorm at Blackwell in her freshman year, as required of all students. Given the fact that it was her first time being away from her family, much less her circle of friends, she was a really shy person. Nevertheless, once she was able to grow her roots, she was open to the Blackwell community. She had even created an abstinence campaign, and urged her peers not to drink, much to their distain. She was maintaining a fair GPA of around 3.9, and exemplified the best of Blackwell Academy. That would all begin to change, however, in her senior year. One night, she was invited to a party by the local group of jocks in the school. Since Cass had very few friends, and was still trying to find a way to fit in, she accepted, and went to the club where the party was taking place. All around her, she would see her peers drinking, dancing, and taking drugs. Naturally, and quite hypocritically, Cass would accept a shot of beer from one of the jocks. It was the first taste of alcohol Cass had outside of the ceremonial wine in her church congregation. As the night progressed, however, Cass began to feel woozy, and sleepy, despite only having one shot, and would eventually lose conscience.

When she returned to a state of grogginess, Cass found herself being stripped by one of the jocks. She tried desperately to keep the jock from assaulting her despite her state, but to no avail. By the end of the night, the jock had his way with her. By morning, she would find her clothes disheveled, and pain in some areas.

She was ashamed about what happened, and had promptly notified her family for comfort. Instead, she was met with hate and disgrace for sinning. Her father felt that she deserved what happened to her, while her mom did nothing... Her aunt would try to console her in anyway she could, despite her distance. A video of the ordeal was posted on the internet by the jock, and soon she was ridiculed by the jocks at school. Cass would close herself up aright then and there, and her grades began to suffer, causing her more grief. With little support or comfort, Cass would do the unthinkable, on a stormy evening, after class, Cass would walk to the top of the building, an would attempt to jump to her death. But just as she was about to jump, one of her friends, Michelle Collins, would rush to the stairs, and confront her. Michelle was eventually able to talk Cass out of jumping, and once they were at ground level, they had a little talk. Michelle had noticed her actions, her lack of social activity, her lowering grades, and was truly concerned for Cass. Cass would then begin to tell her story, of that fateful night, and by the end, Michelle talked her into notifying the authorities. Step by step, the school administration tracked the video, and in turn, the jock was sentenced to prison time for his actions.

New Discoveries, New Journeys
Through the ordeal, Cass would begin to develop a bit of a fondness for Michelle. She had realized pretty early that she had a dislike for boys, but as she thought about her feelings to Michelle, she would come to the conclusion of her sexuality. She was never able to pursue the relationship, not only because they both had a busy schedule that made the relationship improbable, but because Cass saw Michelle as her role model, her angel, someone who was too bright for her. She was able to get her grades back up, however, and soon was on her way to having a happy school life. She wasn't out of the woods yet, however. As her years at Blackwell began to end, Cass had started to come out to her family members, starting with her Aunt Linde. Trouble would strike again, however, as when she came out to her father, and mother through video chat, she was ostracized, and was disowned by the disgusted father, still convinced that homosexuality was a sin, she would never get to say goodbye to her younger sisters. Her aunt would be there to comfort her, and would take her home belongings out of the house, offering her a place to stay after her graduation. She soon graduated from Blackwell, and with help from her Aunt, would find herself a home to rent in Arcadia Bay. She was desperate though, she had a job working as a waitress at the Two Whales Diner, but she had wanted to pursue a career as an artist. Faced with little choices, she would take a decision that she was against. She would Join the Mobile Infantry. While she had wanted to help people, she had felt a strong repugnance against the Federation for their actions and possible lack of transparency. Nevertheless, she concluded that if she wanted to get to her dream career without starving, and possibly help reform some of the Federation's policies, she would have to work from the inside out. And so, after saying her goodbyes to her aunt, and her friends, she would pack her things, and leave for boot camp... off to the great unknown.

Characteristics:
Artistic

Cassie is really into her own arts, particularly sketching. It is her one dream to write and illustrate her own children's book someday when all is said and done. She also takes in commissions and accommodates for anyone who cant afford it.
Caring
She really gets concerned when her friends get involved in a problem. She'd try anything within her ability to make sure that everyone is at peace, even if they had done something harmful to her and her friends.
Cautious
Cassie is often too careful that he might hurt someone, almost to the point where she might get stressed out in certain situations. Nevertheless, if she does know what she's doing, she'd be able to get through a problem, and may even help others along the way.
Introverted
Cassie is often not to fond of branching out to so many people so quickly. Nevertheless she likes being alone sometimes, and contacts her friends when she wants to. In addition, she's willing to go to social events, as long as it's with her friends.
Moral
Cass is willing to do what's right, and understands when what she's doing is right and wrong. Good for civilian life, but not to great for the Mobile Infantry, who often at times thrive on moral wrong after moral wrong.
Meek
On the contrary, Cass is painfully passive with what she wants to say, often resorting to gestures to get her message through, nevermind shouting. The only time she would resort to shouting is when it is necessary. This might infuriate people.

-Franco Sorrentino
He's a reasonable NCO Officer (My how things have changed.), and he's real adaptable. He helped me do my first ampution, with some help from Swift of course. I don't know what I would've done if he wasn't there to help me, or if I would've been able to keep the Leftenant alive. Nevertheless, I owe him something, I'll have to think of giving him something as payment.
-
Gabriel Logan
He seems to really care for his people on a deeper level. He asked on my well being and whether or not I had recovered, and was concerned about me and Abby's mental health, in a place where SNCO's may more likely inflict pain (Maclagen) he deserves my respect.
-Maria Catrambone
You cheated on Abby while I was gone... and you voiced it all over the ship like it was no problem whatsoever, even in front of Abby's new girlfriend. You're also really in-your-face... Yet I forgive you... for I understand that I had been away for far too long, and that I should've learned my lesson then and there if I had really wanted to keep my relationship, in fact, I thank you for helping me learn that.
-
Graham Maclagen
Not only are you a raging homophobe to the point where you remind me of my father, you represent all the wrong that's within the Federation, to allow someone like him to be in charge of us....oh yes, and to add salt to the wound, you not only went over the line by pretending to be a stereotypical gay guy to make your point on a no fraternization policy, you CALLED OUT THE ENTIRE MEDICAL DIVISION AS BEING NOTHING BUT A GROUP OF GAYS THAT NEED TO BE "STRAIGHTENED OUT!" Way to promote unit cohesion Sergeant! You see, THIS was why I joined the MI, I had hoped to change it from the inside, or at least have a voice for change, there are so many reasons why the MI and to the extent the Federation aren't always the good guys...and he's one of them...

- Abbigail Vitsion
I feel really sad and disappointed that you had to go to two other people besides me for comfort while I was gone... But it was my fault that I didn't just contact you through mail or video chat.... I'm sorry and I should've talked to you more.... and most of all...I still miss you... and I still feel close to you... Nevertheless, I support your new relationship with Inez. I'm sorry you had to face even more loss, blaming yourself for losing the captain and Rhodes, not to mention you lost the one person that fit with you. Yes, we're together again...but you've changed, you have a mask that you wear now, one that acts happy and calm, but you still cry and blame yourself on the inside. You don't even seem to even want to show any emotion anymore since you've become a corporal, taking lessons from that apathetic Staff Sergeant named Maclagen. We're together yes, but would you even care if I was gone? Nevertheless, I'll try not to make the same mistakes I made the last time. I don't have to worry so much anymore, we're getting married after we both get discharged.
- Garret Swift
We've been able to talk to each other a lot. It get's to the point where we joke around and have fun with each other. He's also pretty reasonable... most of the time... I'm still not used to the methods of punishment in the MI, nor would I want to be used to them.

-Alistair Takagawa

He's our new immediate leader replacing Geier. He's a reasonable leader who talks out reason when it comes to problem solving. I would say he's one of the good leaders on this ship. At least, one of the most human leaders on this ship.
- Abbigail Klastner
She's a capable medic. She's also pretty crass, and pretty loud... I-I'd still want to talk to her though....
-
Frank Zeploza
He's been training me in the basics to being a field medic. He's been a real help to me, and he's a really nice guy. I just hope we could wrap up our training soon.... We finished, and he shares my sentiments with Maclagan. But we don't see much of each other now.
-Ashni Tremaine
One of the newer medics on the ship. She's really adorable and sweet. I offered to help her out in how to do some of the treatments. Sort of like a part time mentor if you will. It's a shame Mac had to blow up on her and all of us when she was just new.

- Kristina Sigrun
Brooks loved you, you know... why didn't you open your heart to her when you didn't have the chance? She's mourning as much as I was, so I'm offering to talk to her, and possibly help her get through this. I know the work you do is dangerous, I just hope that this reminds you to take chances before you lose them. But for now it's time to pick up the pieces.

-Alfred C. Smith
He's a good and reasonable marine. We don't talk to each other, but he's one of the sane people on the ship. I guess you have to be sane to be a marine though, considering what we deal with on a daily basis.

- Vanilla-Cinnamon Tea
It just smells so good, and it tastes just as good... I just wish I still had more left.....
-Sketching and artwork
Ever since aunt Linde gave me my first art set, I've had a passion for artwork. I even went to a private boarding school to get an advantage in art. I'm still keeping my skills in tip top shape, bridges, dams, people, scenes from our ops, beaches, shipwrecks, as long as I have me sketchbook, my pencils, my charcoal, and my watercolors, I can be myself. I even plan to write and illustrate my own children's book when I am through with the Mobile Infantry.
- Alcohol
You made me have the worst night in my life! Granted, I-I can still drink a cup or two, but I really don't want to after what happened in the club. I can see why people want to drink... but I'm sticking to my tea if I get stressed.
- Richard Newman
Not only did you didn't care for me when I was recovering from assault, you blamed me for sinning with taking drink, especially under age. And to top it all off, you disown me for having a liking to someone of the same gender, and separated my from my sister.... I...Really...Hate you.....
- Frederica Newman
I-I still love you mom...but you didn't do anything to keep me in the house when I came out. Not only that, but you also blamed me for sinning, and didn't help me recover from the assault... I really hope you can forgive me and for what I do.....
-Elena Linde
You're so independent and carefree. You taught me that the authority isn't always right, and that if I want to make change, I must be determined to do it in my own way. You also took me in when I had no one, and now I'm out, on my own, hoping to change things from the inside...I-I just don't know how I can repay you...
-Mary and Lynn Newman
I miss you two.... I really do hope I can get you away from our strict parents. And help both of you grow along the way, so that maybe you don't make the same mistakes I did.
- Terran Federation
The more I see and hear what we do, the more I begin to despise us. Sure we're protecting ourselves against an alien threat. But did we need to massacre an entire village of innocents just to send a message? Or use corporal punishment to make sure we stay cute, loyal robots? To top that off, we have little to no free, independtant speech, and in order to have our say, we must die for our government, rather than give trust that we know what to choose. Things seem to get worse with the Nationalists in power. Now more innocents will die, either by bugs, by our own bullets, or by starvation from an uncaring government.....

- Yumi Nakamura
She's just as shy and introverted as me. She was feeling a little hopeless at first, but now she has Madlyn. And now they're trying to get their relationship papers. And now she's really headstrong and confident in herself...I feel sad that she went through a similar situation like I did. I'm willing to help her through the cynical world of the Mobile Infantry. Just please separate your relationship with Aora from the battlefield. And now I heard that you had transferred out from here... *Sighs* You really should've stayed... prove everyone wrong that conformity isn't the only option in the Mobile Infantry... Then again, the MI really cracks down on individual freedoms, makes me hate them more each day.... I'll try to keep in touch in any way I can.
- Inez Amantes
Please... take care of Abby for me will you? I was really saddened at first that you took her heart, but the more I see you, the more I know that you fit her more than I did personality wise.....And now you've been dead... for a month now, Abby has told me....you guys were a great couple, and I could tell that Abby is mourning under that mask she seems to wear now... I think she'll still miss you,,, even now if she's with me again.
-Samantha Brooks
Execution for insubordination and sedition... She should've deserved a better sentence, at least a lifetime in prison... but that doesn't matter, I was her confidant, the one person she trusted to tell personal things, and to find solace...She had a girlfriend, an unrequited love... She had so much unfinished business.

-Rosalind Gatsubishi
She was someone that Abby looked up to... and I respected her to an extent, I just hope she is up in heaven right now looking down at us.
-Madlyn Jacobson
She's really upfront with nearly everything, and she really cares for Yumi. I'll try and see if I can do anything to keep them together for their time in service as long as they want to. I failed...horribly, now Jacobson had ran...I-I'd thought that you'd stay and fight, to keep Yumi safe....and I feel betrayed that you chose the cowardly way out...
-
Aora Kelman
He's in the same group of friends as me and Yumi. He developed a romantic interest in Yumi though, to the point where they kissed on the battlefield. That might've been one of the reasons why Maddie jumped ship. Anyway, he's a good medic as well, but I'd say be careful with your relationship, Abby and I can keep our relationship off the battlefield, and so can you, just please don't mess up, and treat Yumi like she's supposed to be treated. He's transferred out, don't know where.
