Biography

Cursed By A God

"Here's the deal; Cassandra has a gift-"
"A curse."
"She kinda got involved with this guy– god– and it didn't end well, and he was pissed, so he gave her magical sight."
Sylvia and Cassandra[src]

Cassandra was born to a King and Queen of Troy. Cassandra was admired by a god who offered her magical sight for her hand in marriage. However, after receiving the gift, Cassandra refused to marry the god, who then cursed her so nobody would believe her prophecies.[1]

Working For The Order

"I guess some Librarians found her and got her to start writing everything down."
"Wait, she's the person who writes all the books of the people in the Library?"
Sylvia and Penny[src]

After the Order of the Library of the Neitherlands found her, they convinced Cassandra to record all of her prophecies, creating the Books of Everyone after the Library had managed to "industrialize" her prophecies, allowing them to learn of the Great Blank Spot centuries before it actually happens. By 2018, Cassandra died and worked in the Underworld Branch of the Library, where she worked to update the Books during the Great Blank Spot after the Old Gods shut off magic.[1]

Trivia

  • In Greek mythology, Kassandra (Κασσάνδρα) was the child of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. Due to her beauty, she was admired and sought by Apollo, and agreed to become his lover when he offered her a gift. However, Kassandra later went back on her word and refused him. Apollo was angered that she lied and deceived him, and cursed her so that though she would see the future accurately, nobody would ever believe her prophecies.
