Prior to the events of the books, Cas was raised by both his parents. They travelled a lot due to his father being a ghost hunter. After his father's death at the hands of the Obeahman, Cas is left to be raised by his mother, a white witch. Cas later takes on his father's career, to the worry and fear of his mother. After several years of practice, Cas, still in high school at this time, his mother and their pet cat move to Thunder Bay, Ontario after he hears of a ghost known as Anna Dressed in Blood.
It is said that Cas has both dark hair and dark eyes. He has some scars as reminders of his job. He is also somewhat mussily because of his occupation
Personality and TraitsEdit
Cas is defiant, brave, and strong willed. Once he has his eyes set on the prize, he doesn't let it go until he has it. He is not as outgoing as his mom, who makes friends easily. Cas is so used to working with the dead that he doesn't have a strong relationship with the living.
Cas kills the dead with an Athame, that he aquired after his father died. He is the only one who can use it properly. It seems to respond to Cas's long line of ghost hunters.
His Mom: Cas's relationship with his mother is quite strong. After the death of his father, Cas grows more protective of his mother and tries to protect her from everything. The same goes his mother, after her husband's death she tries to stop him from ghost hunting, afraid that she will lose her son as well. It's clear she knows it's not possible for her to persuade him, so she goes along with him, doing whatever she can to protect him. Later in the book when Cas gets infected by the Obeahman, his mother stays by his side while he is dying and also goes along with the trap he has for the Obeahman.
Thomas Sabin: When Cas first meets Thomas he finds him nosey, arrogant, and completely unlikeable but then Thomas drags him, saving him from the monster version of Anna after Mike's gang belted it. He helps him find out what happened to Anna and how to release her from her mother's spell. After Anna was dragged into hell Thomas, alongside Carmel, helped Cas find a way to save her. Thomas becomes one of Cas's best friends.
Carmel Jones: When searching information of Anna Korlov he questions Carmel who seemed an easy girl to get the info he needs. After confronting her ex-boyfriend Mike (deceased), Carmel finds him interesting and become close friends when Anna went missing. A great listener to all his problems even when situations went out of hand.
Anna Korov: The ghost he was supposed to kill, his last hunt before he went after his father's killer. Instead Anna haunted his heart and he fell in love.
Mike Andover: Carmel Jones' Ex-Boyfriend. He is jealous about Carmel and Cas so he gives Cas a warning by ambushing Cas in Anna's house. That is where Mike's life ends, and Anna saves Cas.
Will: One of Cas's fake friends (later on a potential enemy). Will was also very close friends with Mike Andover, turned against Cas when he was hesitant on killing Anna Karlov, stole Cas's Athame and injuring Anna with it in the process when Cas couldn't kill her. Becuase of his actions, he causes the Obeahman to awaken and become obsessed on feeding/killing Anna.
Morfman Sabin: Thomas' Grandfather. A witch who is knowledgeable about voodoo.
