Being a new officer aboard the ship, Cassie's shy nature has prevented her from forming many close relationships thus far. Slowly but surely, the close knit, small crew of the USS Arrow is cracking her stern exterior and she's warming up to her new home.

Personal Life

Generally, Cassie is very work oriented and is sometimes accused of being "all work and no play." However, her gentle and calm demeanor has led to her having a good bedside manner, something she considers a necessity in her line of work. Though, in her social life, Cassie does not often venture out of her comfort zone, she is determined to be less afraid looking into the future with Starfleet.

Due to the high stress she puts on herself, and the stress that comes with intensive training to become a doctor, Cassie has developed some compulsive behaviors; organizing, color-coordinating, as well as other minor anxious habits. It is because of her need for organization and neatness that she can be rather finicky in details, as well as be perceived as "high maintenance." However, her acute eye for detail can be a blessing in her line of work.


Gerald - African Violet

Cassie spends most of her free time reading. Her favorite genres are fantasy and science fiction. Poetry, from Earth and other Federation planets, is also one of her favorites. Her love of reading inspired Cassie to become interested in the skill of bookbinding, a unique and antiquated hobby that she considers just as valuable a skill now as it would have been centuries prior.

Knitting and sewing are also favorite pastimes, because the repetitious motions can be calming. She also enjoys gardening, though hasn't been able to do it much while in the Academy. Being surrounded by plants reminds her a lot of her mothers' garden back home. Growing up with a child therapist as a mother, Cassie was taught early on to learn breathing exercises and remain calm. It sparked a life long appreciation for yoga. Occasionally, Cassie will enjoy hiking, though she's always sure to bring a fully equipped Medkit in case of emergencies.

Gifted to her after graduation, Cassie's African Violet was the first decoration placed in her quarters once assigned to the Arrow. She's extremely fond of the little plant, and affectionately named it Gerald.

Early Life & Family

As a baby, Cassie was adopted by Sana Mae Safi, a child therapist, and Dr. Rin Mason, a pediatrician. As a result of the two women being a same-sex couple, all three of their children are adopted. On several occasions, Cassie has credited her desire to become a physician to her mothers and their dedication to their work as well as the health of their own children.

Cassie and Beatrice, 2378

During her childhood, Cassie was often found in her mothers' backyard. Sitting under the draped canopy inside the small greenhouse, she read as many books as she could get her hands on. To this day, Cassie's love of reading is something she prides herself on and does as often as time allows.

Older brother, Alexander, lives in Spain with his partner and son, working as an Ambassador in the United States Embassy in Barcelona. Younger sister, Beatrice, is a graduate student at New York University studying Biomolecular Science. Since Cassandra's decision to join Starfleet, the two sisters have been estranged. Beatrice refuses to speak with her older sister despite Cassie's efforts to reach out. It's been 4 years since the two last spoke and Cassie often wonders if they will ever be able to bridge the canyon that has been carved between them.

Despite her goals of wanting to be a physician, Cassie did not always see herself working for Starfleet. It was her first year of college that Cassie broke up with her high school sweetheart, just several months after becoming engaged. The sudden loss of one of the most important people in her life led Cassandra to think more about what this meant for her future. The more she focused inwards, the more the shy bookworm in her desired adventure and travel. As soon as the thought of Starfleet crossed her mind, the more it seemed like the only option.

The Academy

During her time at the Academy, Cassie distracted herself from her broken heart by diving into her studies. This, combined with her shy nature, led to her missing out on most of the social life her fellow cadets got to experience, and only introverted her more. Though this was good for her education, she's often been told that her quiet focus can be misinterpreted as rude and snobby.

While studying at the Starfleet Medical Academy, Cassie developed her specialties in Xenobiology and Neuroscience. Additionally, she developed an interest in chiropractic treatments in humanoid species, and the practical uses of acupuncture.
