When Casandra was younger, she was the main focus of her parent’s happiness. Her mother was a seamstress and her father owned a million-pound company. Until she hit the age of 12, her father lost everything and her family ended up in poverty.
This took an effect on her father who soon suffered multiple strokes from financial distress, making young teenage Casandra, a family carer as she proceeded through college and school.
By the time she hit 20 years of age, she had to make the heart-aching choice of pulling the plug on her father. 2 weeks later, he passed away from starvation in a nursing home.
A fresh open wound left Casandra stuck in a static motion, unable to know what to do with her life. Stuck in a life of grieving and healthcare neglect, she turned to street racing. This led to a close-fatal car crash which ended up with her in hospital for 6 months.
Serving her time for reckless driving, she moved to Connecticut USA to start anew. Only to exceed falling into the same habits of street racing.
Connecticut soon became tedious due to the Law Enforcement
where Casandra ended up using her car to get to Los Santos until it fell apart.
She didn’t really know what to do in a big city until finding herself a job at the Vanilla Unicorn
as a bartender. On some nights when not many dancers showed, she took their place and earned a large amount of cash doing so.
She tried to use the large earnings to start up the San Andreas Grand Prix and Racing league but yet fell into shambles as it seemed to be a massive failure.
Over time, she met Jack Callow at the Vanilla Unicorn
. A quiet individual who used to go by different names, one being Donny. He flashed his cash and treated the girls well at the Vanilla Unicorn
. Some of them would dance for him simply because they were gold diggers. Casandra approached to actually learn more about him.
Soon, learning about him turned into a romantic yet secret relationship. Jack didn’t want anyone knowing Casandra was his girlfriend, nor allowing Casandra to tell anyone. She was just a secret which led to her breaking down and abandoning the secrecy. They tried repairing their relationship, this time making it public before Jack fully neglected her and concentrated on building SAFA.
Casandra, yet again, was stuck in limbo. Leading her to lash out at some other employees in the Vanilla Unicorn which led to an event of her being slammed into the side of her car with a semi-truck. It incapacitated her.
And when she woke up… she didn’t know anyone.
Vulnerable, Casandra’s doctor ended up helping her heal mentally, emotionally and physically. Trapping her in a loop of lies and slander. He made her paranoid and told her that people weren’t to be trusted, including ones she deemed close to her. She only trusted him and therefore ended up dating him. Once it came to realize what he was doing, she tried breaking up with him. Which sent him into a stir-crazy behaviour. She left and never went back…
Trying to build herself back up again from a memory loss, Casandra received phone calls from names she didn’t remember. One was Andrew McKinley, the new appointed Governor and friend of hers prior to the incident. Explaining her situation, Andrew helped Casandra get on her feet and recruited her as a paralegal for the Department of Justice
She had no idea or clue what the hell that even was or meant.
Casandra soon figured out what she needed to do in the job and attended her BAR exam to be promoted to a Senior State Prosecutor. She found a love and passion for finding justice. Devoted to her job, all of Casandra’s friends from pre and during the incident, realised not to disturb her. Leaving her to have 0 social times with anyone and becoming a work-a-holic.
Seeing this, a man named Evan Smith called her, inviting her to come and relax with a game of pool. The game turned into a date on a speedboat. And the speedboat ended up visiting a yacht where they had their first kiss. Their relationship was massively complicated but figured itself out.
Whilst dating Evan, Casandra was caught up with a case involving Robert Martindale; a corrupt cop who cheated on his wife and sold class 2 weapons to civilians. Knowing how close of trust Martindale got with Casandra; she tried using this to her advantage to get arrested.
This led to the famous hostage-taking where Robert pointed a gun at Casandra and made her carry his weed, coercing her into doing what he said or else she’d die. Police were informed, but eventually, they had caught Robert and saved Casandra… They believed she was a drug kingpin because of Robert Martindale’s statement in MRPD.
This ruined Casandra and almost her career. Public members spouting threats and insults at her when all she was, was the victim…
Night after night, she found herself sitting in the shower and crying. Night after night, she found herself having PTSD attacks when she was asleep.
Worn out and broken, Casandra waited for the day to see if she was made guilty or not guilty. The Department of Justice
plea was dismissed without prejudice due to the massive lack of evidence the police failed to provide to prove she was this massive drug lord.
Soon taking her job back as an assistant district attorney, she worked her way up to regaining trust and proving herself that there could be proper justice within the system after it failed her majorly. Under this and new management of the Department of Justice, she was promoted to Senior State Prosecutor.
Whilst doing so, her relationship with Evan became none existent as he failed to tell Casandra he was going to Portugal for a month. Her mind thinking abandonment, or that he was dead, led her to try moving on. And as soon as she did, he came back a day later.
Distraught, Casandra broke it off with Evan in bad decision making. Tearing her heart from her chest and soon leaving her in a panic attack due to how hurt it made her do so. The person she tried making it work with, soon neglected her and made her the background piece, dumping her at the Christmas Government
Casandra soon made a will which was signed off and opened up her own chocolate shop in an attempt to fix her life, before she could do anything else for anyone.
Casandra continued her work in her broken mental state. Drowning herself to avoid problems and voiding any issues she could possibly do. She couldn't fix herself, but she could try and fix the state.
Cohen was eventually called by a family member regarding one of her family's wellbeing and health. She had to take an LOA back to the United Kingdom to ensure she could make sure everything was alright before returning.
