Proinsas Cassidy was born in Ireland where he was a scrappy young kid with a penchant for getting he and his brother Billy into mischief. Coming home one night after a bit of a row in town, Proinsas and Billy were attacked by a woman who came out of the swamp. Billy shot the woman an both she and Proinsias went under. When they didn't surface, Billy thought his brother had died and fled.

Proinsias, however, woke up the next morning to find that the sunlight burned, and ended up passing out, sinking back beneath the water until the night fell and he could crawl out of the swamp into which he had fallen. He tried to return to his life, but soon found that something was wrong. The allergy to sunlight, the need for raw red meat (at the time, he didn't realize it was the blood he needed), and his unusual strength were a mystery to him. He found himself fighting, a lot. He took place in the street fighting during the Easter Rising in Dublin but eventually he left Ireland and traveled to New York and went to the first place of solace he could think of — an Irish Pub named MacSorley's, and there he met his first friend in the New World during an armwrestling match. It would be this friend who would later put the pieces together and explain to Cassidy what he really was.

This sent Cass into a bit of a downward spiral as the bon vivant/troublemaker came to grips with his vampirism and all that it entailed. In time, however, it became clear that he couldn't stay in any one place for too long, and though he loved New York, he began a journey around the U.S., moving from city to city and getting into whatever trouble he could find. Alcohol and drug use are his primary vices, though a good fight is close behind.

Recently he's found himself embroiled in a search for God, which is frankly not a search that he'd ever imagined himself being on. And that search, and those on it with him, are what has brought him once more to the city where he started his American journey.

IC Events


  • Cassidy is a vampire and his powers are a function of his vampirism. As such, he is reliant on blood to fuel his abilities.
  • Immortality: Cassidy will never die of natural causes. He will not grow old. His body will not age. He can recover from nearly all injuries, even the most grievous, so long as he can feed on blood, which fuels his regeneration. However, he can be destroyed by fire or sunlight.
  • Vampiric Physiology: So long as he has fed on blood within the past week, Cassidy possesses the strength to lift a car and the speed to outrun the same. He is resilient enough to fall out of an airplane and survive the fall. And he has the endurance to remain awake even through the day for several days as long as he remains covered from sunlight.
  • Heightened Senses: His vampiric senses are greater than that of a normal mortal, allowing him to hear the sound of approaching footsteps from outside or hear a whispered conversation across a room. He can spot movements in a crowd and read the printed text of a newspaper across a room. And he has a sense of smell roughtly the equivalent of a scent hound.
