Name: Cassandra “Cassie” Venus
Gender: Female
Age: 18
Grade: Senior
School: Cochise High School
Hobbies and Interests: Partying, socialising, music, playing guitar, photography, art (painting and drawing).

Appearance: Cassie is 5’7” and has a very slim build, weighing only 115 pounds. She has long, straight hair that falls down to a few inches above the middle of her back and is usually in a middle parting or pushed back. Cassie’s hair is naturally a medium-brown colour; however, she regularly dyes it in an ombre style so that it gradually turns into a shade of dark blonde towards the middle and ends of her hair. She has a light skin tone and a heart shaped face with big hazel eyes and a straight nose which is rounded at the tip. Her lips are quite full and usually rest in a natural pout. Her face is somewhat gaunt, making her cheekbones and jawline seem very defined. Cassie’s eyebrows are a slightly darker shade than her natural hair colour, which accompanied with her long, dark eyelashes brings considerable attention to her rounded eyes.

It is very uncommon to see Cassie without any makeup on. She favours heavy, dark eye makeup such as black or dark brown eye liner, eye shadow and mascara in order to bring more attention to her eyes, which she considers her best feature. Cassie’s wardrobe can best be described as being inspired by the grunge look. As such, her wardrobe mainly consists of flannel, ripped skinny jeans, crop tops, skirts and shorts in mostly dark colours. Cassie also has several ear piercings; both her lobes are pierced as well as having her helix pierced with a silver ring on her left ear, and her tragus pierced with a silver bar on her right ear. On the day of abduction Cassie was wearing a loose black crop top with a white peace sign on it and black ripped skinny jeans. Accompanying this she wore an undone dark red and blue flannel shirt and black boots.

Biography: Cassie was born to Michael and Nora Venus on the 15th of March, 1997. She was their second child, with her brother Spencer being born two years before her. Cassie and her brother had a comfortable upbringing and have lived in Kingman, Arizona their whole lives. Her father is an accountant and her mother is a geography teacher at a local elementary school.

Cassie gets on very well with her family, her brother in particular. Cassie and Spencer have had a close bond from a young age and have continued that close bond until this day. The pair spend a lot of their time together when they are both at home, and it was Spencer that got Cassie invested in many of her hobbies. For example, he has had a huge influence on her music taste, and her love of music in general. Cassie’s music taste can best be described as mainly being indie pop/rock but she is also open to other genres. Her favourite bands and musicians are The XX, Lana Del Rey, Muse, Marina and the Diamonds, and Mumford and Sons just to name a few. As a result of their mutual love of music, Cassie and Spencer often go to festivals and concerts together, ranging from large festivals such as Coachella, to smaller performances in bars. Spencer also ignited Cassie passion for playing guitar. From an early age he helped teach her to play the basics of acoustic guitar, before she eventually moved on to get professional lessons. Now, Cassie can play a range of different guitars such as acoustic, electric and bass. She has always enjoyed playing guitar as it has been a key source of her entertainment and it allowed to her bond closer with her brother. Spencer has since moved out of the house and it currently part of a band whilst also working at a record shop. Cassie wishes to follow in her brothers footsteps and be in a band when she is older. However, unlike her brother, she aspires to do this professionally and hopes to eventually make a successful career out of her guitar playing.

During her early years of school, Cassie became very popular with some of her classmates. This was down to her fun, outgoing and all around sociable personality. As a result of her sociable and friendly personality, Cassie finds it very easy to make new friends, and as a result has a wide range of friends and acquaintances. However, there are some people that find her up-beat, carefree attitude annoying which has caused some people to dislike her. Whenever she discovers someone has this opinion of her and they aren’t of any significance to her, she will try to avoid the person. However, if the person is linked to her somehow such as being a friend of a friend or she is made to work with the person in a class, she will try to be as friendly to them as possible in an attempt to sway their opinion. Cassie puts having fun over all other things, which results in whoever hangs out with her having a good time in most cases. Due to this way of thinking, Cassie prefers to avoid drama and not get involved in arguments or other people’s problems. This even includes when her friends are having emotional problems and are feeling sad. When faced with this, Cassie usually tries to change the subject matter or in some occasions even avoids them totally until their problem is sorted. As a result of this, many people view Cassie as being unsympathetic and somewhat cold hearted, which isn’t the case. Whilst Cassie does care about her friends, she finds it awkward when dealing with other peoples misfortune and doesn’t like their negative emotions having an effect on her. Cassie continues this train of thought when it comes to her own issues and problems too. If she is ever feeling down or has a personal issue, Cassie prefers to keep it to herself and puts on a brave face for her friends. This is because Cassie wants to keep up her happy-go-lucky reputation, and would rather focus on having fun in order to solve her problem rather than confronting it directly.

It was also during her first years at school that Cassie discovered her passion for art. Over the course of her art classes, Cassie discovered that she had a natural talent for drawing and painting. Over the years she has since refined her skills and creates beautiful pieces of artwork. Cassie enjoys drawing and painting a range of things, from portraits, to landscapes, to inanimate objects. On most occasions, she will decide to draw or paint something based on if she thinks it will look good, rather than creating something that has a deeper meaning. This love of painting and drawing also led on to her finding her love of photography. Cassie enjoys taking photos both for her own pleasure and to help her with her artwork. The photos she takes often gives her inspiration for new pieces of art to draw and paint. As a result of her passion for photography, Cassie started a blog where she uploads many of the photos she has taken. On her 16th birthday her parents gifted her a DSLR camera which she has used to significantly improve the quality of her photography. She also often carries a smaller digital camera around with her just in case she comes across something that captures her inspiration and wants to take a photo of.

Upon first attending Cochise High School, it didn’t take Cassie long to join the ranks of the school’s popular crowd. Once again, this was down to her fun and outgoing personality which won over many of her classmates. Despite being part of the popular crowd, Cassie still has many friends and acquaintances outside the group who she regularly keeps in contact with. However, being part of the popular crowd also had its drawbacks as some pupils of the school began to have a negative impression of her due to her association with some of the more hostile and meaner members of her friendship group. On most occasions though, these opinions were from pupils who didn’t directly know her, and many times she was able to change people’s impressions of her for the better once she interacts with them. It was also upon starting at Cochise High School that Cassie met people that started to invite her to parties. At these parties she was also introduced to drugs and alcohol. On most occasions Cassie usually sticks to the lighter drugs such as pot, but she has been known to try harder drugs such as cocaine on some instances. With this mix, Cassie began to build a wild, party girl reputation for herself. This was due to the mischief she would end up getting into at the parties, which ranged from kissing multiple people, to dancing on top of tables, as well as her developing a try anything once attitude. As a result of this, rumours about Cassie at the parties began circling around the school. For the most part Cassie didn’t seem to care about the rumours, as most of them turned out to be true anyway. When confronted with a rumour that didn’t happen, she would simply inform the person it was false and move on. Whilst Cassie does dabble in drugs and alcohol, she is not a frequent user and only takes them socially, for the most part only at parties. Cassie's parents are okay with her going to parties, however, this is mostly because Cassie never tells them what she gets up to when she is out.

From an early age Cassie had always been a picky eater, refusing to eat certain types of food, limiting herself to certain brands and even refusing to eat things depending on how it was prepared. At first, Cassie’s parents thought that it was just a phase that she would grow out of, however, her picky eating continued on into her late teens. Her picky eating became so severe that when she attempted to consume certain types of food she didn't like, she would involuntarily retch, gag, or even vomit. Her eating habits as well as her having a fast metabolism and a small appetite had led Cassie to become underweight and malnourished. Cassie’s parents thought that she might have had an eating disorder, but she showed no other symptoms of having an eating disorder other than being underweight. Whilst her parents have tried to help her with her picky eating, she has made little progress. At school, many students have noticed Cassie's thin frame and there have even been rumours of her having an eating disorder. Whenever someone concerned with her weight attempts to talk to her about it, Cassie is quick to shrug it off and divert the conversation elsewhere in order to avoid any drama.

At school, Cassie doesn’t consider herself to be very academic. This is because she finds subjects such as English, maths and science extremely tedious, and thus doesn’t try as hard as she does in other lessons. Also, because of her attitude towards putting fun before all other things, this has caused her to put off work related to these subjects. As a result, Cassie receives slightly below average grades in these subjects, usually getting low C’s, or B’s if she actually attempts to try to do well. She invests herself much more in the artistic lessons such as music, art and photography. Cassie does extremely well in these classes and usually gets high A’s. Her parents are very laid back, and whilst they are concerned with her below average grades, they are still fairly relaxed about the situation. This is because they know she is still passing the subjects and are aware that she doesn’t wish to get a job that heavily revolves around the subjects. What also makes them slightly more lenient with her relatively poor grades is the fact that they know she is doing extremely well in the subjects she actually likes.

Advantages: Cassie has a strong and large friendship group which would offer her many allies on the island. Due to her friendly and sociable demeanour, Cassie hasn’t made many enemies over the years which may make her low on people’s priority list to kill. She may also find it relatively easy to make new allies as a result of her friendly and bubbly personality. Her relatively selfish attitude may also come at an advantage to her.
Disadvantages: Due to her picky eating and being underweight, Cassie can be seen to be more physically frail compared to the other students. Also, because of her eating habits, she may refuse to eat some of the rations given to her which may make her struggle to get by on the island. As a result of her friendship with some of the popular group’s meaner member, this could make Cassie a target due to her association with them.
