JUNE 13, 2019 - Family emergency took a bad turn so had to stay away but now things are finally calming down. Hope to get going again shortly. Thanks for understanding. ~ZEPH
Before April, 2016
May 2010 - April 2016 : When The Nevus Event occurs Cassandra, who is in Italy, is hospitalized after a head injury then kidnapped by a splinter group who breaks, trains, and conditions her while experimenting on her. The goal to amalgamate demonic mana into her body that'd work with her magus ability to make her a powerful weapon. Secretly one of their employees, Amado, had switched the demonic mana being used for the experiment and was preparing her body to be a vessel for a demon named Nyxeris. When they discovered the presence of Nyx it would be too late as the second explosion of her unpredictable powers would let the demon take over, lead to a slaughter, and see her escape into the world -- and the OFL would do their best to cover up, and undersell, the incident by declaring the subsidiary to be rogue.

March 16th : After roughly 2 weeks, Cassandra flies home to New York. Courtesy of a private pilot and plane hired by ARMA, of course.

May 28th : Returns from Alaska mission, it being a relative success and pushes for Wesley to be promoted to Sergeant giving his excellent work especially in regards to keeping a level-head under pressure.
July 16th - 17th : On the evening of July 16th, just before midnight, Cassandra goes to investigate the apartment of a fellow ARMA magus who’d disappeared while she was away in Alaska. A Sergeant in Shield, who had been a rogue magus until meeting Cass in a dance class inspired her to eventually reveal the status and join ARMA. When hearing that an initial investigation turned up nothing so others thought she defected, Cass refused to believe it and went searching herself. Words scratched on a floorboard (brasbeats) lead to a key taped to the top of the beam; recognizing it as going to a locker in their now condemned dance building, and once inside she found the locker full of a secret investigation where her friend had been tracking the disappearance of rogue magus in the world. Calling Alec to tell him what she’d found, she was digging through other stuff in the locker accidentally touched an odd coin and. . . woke up the next day in a motel in Lakeville, Connecticut without any memory of how she got there. -- Nightshade (F)
July 17th - 29th : Alarmed, she noticed her phone, keys, and gun was missing. In search of answers, she runs into Trystan Sallow, Eye Magus 1st Class of the OFL, sending alarm through her until he reveals he has gaps in memory too. Soon enough they come to find out the human people of Lakeville, in order to keep and protect their idealistic little town, are sacrificing magus for others in order to obtain access to their mana for ritualistic magic - and they’re next on the list. With nobody coming to find them as far as they know, they can only put aside their differences and depend on each other. What follows is a week long experience from hell of near-death and having to injure, and sometimes kill, in order to stay alive until eventually ARMA and the OFL save the day. Each sending out their specialized units in search of their missing magus, and locating the town just in the nick of time. Unfortunately, who or whatever was behind the townspeople committing order in exchange for the towns protection fled their nearby location before they could be found. -- Nightshade (F) [other member left; planned summary included though flashbacks may come later]
July 29th - Aug. 26th : After the Lakeville incident, Cass is sternly ordered to take an actual vacation and for a whole month. This results in much time spent in therapy, but also going to shows, taking trips out of the city and state, etc. with friends, her brother, and well. . . Alec. During this time their relationship goes from slow and casual to serious.
Nov. 11th : During the Blood Moon, New York faces the horror movie equivalent of a blood bath as Lycanthropes run wild. Cassandra and ARMA do what they’re able to help the citizens of New York. During this incident she overhears several magus encounter a man - one with a familiar voice - who proceeds to murder them. The manner of their deaths tie into a case, The Guillotine Murders, that she has been working on for over a year.
Dec. 25th : Who spends their Christmas catching bad guys? Well, Cassandra Greene when you got a solid lead on a serial killer after weeks of tracking him following the Blood Moon. As a gift to herself, and the world, ARMA sets a large op utilizing Knight, Tower, and Shield division units under the lead of the 3 Knight Captains with Cassandra running partial point to snag the Executioner, Toweenar Van Aarde, who orchestrated the bloody killings of the Guillotine Murders going back to 2017. The op went off with minimal, acceptable losses though was a success. When confronted, the rogue magus confessed in detail. He now resides in a magic-dampening solitary cell in New Alcatraz - for the safety of all.
January : With the news of Ireland advancing Outworlder registration in late 2019 then the passing of it January 2020, the world watches as Ireland erupts in fear and violence. ARMA reaches out in secret to assist in quietly aiding in getting their own people out of there and others who might need rescuing.
Jan. 10th : Is promoted to a Captain of Knight Division and earns a commendation for her work on the Guillotine Murders.
Jan. 15th - 29th : Goes through her training as required for those becoming a Captain within ARMA. It is more intense than her experience prior, but also has a lot more paperwork(ugh!).
Nov. 18 - Dec. 20 : Much of New York faces a severe change in weather as it becomes colder and colder. It eventually becomes clear this winter is not a natural occurrence, but one related to magic. This period is largely spent keeping warm and helping out the citizens of New York in other ways as crime seemed to slow with the freeze. Instead Cassandra hit up the PR department, a relatively new and underachieving area in ARMA, with ideas on how to improve their image such as helping at shelters, donating to charities, building free magical-heaters which they then donated to schools, shelters, orphanages, hospitals, etc. to help ward off against the cold especially at night, and so forth.
June 4th : In the news is a lynching in NJ and a bombing in NY that is whispered to be tied to Outworlder Registration. Many in the city talk that it’s possible the violence has spread to the EAA which leaves some of ARMA uneasy as not all who work for them are from this world.
Sept. 5th : The next step in Alec and Cass’s relationship takes place as they discuss living together. They both agree that the best idea is for Cass to move in with Alec at his apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.
May 15th : The simultaneous disappearance of Overseer Aura Edler and Commander Alistair Greene, one of the original founding members of ARMA and former Overseer, sets of alarm bells within the faction. At first things are handled as usual with everyone looking into the disappearance. Slowly things start to degrade. Cass does her best to hide the growing fear and panic inside that something has taken the last member of her family from her. Instinctively they check with the OFL first, but given their temporary truce due to the more serious matter that involved Lakeville, it becomes clear they were not involved.
June 30th : A vacuum is left within ARMA, people begin to speculate that perhaps both the Overseer and Commander abandoned them. Others think it hogwash to create such insulting rumors. Divisive ideas of what should be done, who should lead in their absence, etc. start to crop up between former members of Aura’s group Silverwing, which had been combined into the ARMA branch known as Shield, and the non-Silverwing members of ARMA loyal to Alistair Greene. Cass and Alec spend much time knocking heads, putting people through mindscape therapy(courtesy of Alec and others capable), and making sure that business carries on as usual in both ARMA’s day-to-day, its continued improvement PR, its work with other factions, its care-taking of the citizens of NY, and its search for Aura and Alistair. [this can be considered a general consensus for how things are generally going at the moment throughout the rest of 2021 & start of 2022]
Dec. 12th : People are getting sick and dying. The only connection? Booze traced back to one Thomas Gallo, but Cass doesn't think he's at fault. Though she will investigate. In progress thread. -- Poison In the Well
Jan. 2nd : Shocking everyone, the FWA secretly passes Outworlder Registration leaving many stunned. In areas of the FWA where ARMA was branching out with locations, an immediate decision was made by the Captains within each branch to shutter them and bring their people back to the EAA immediately. The reason two-fold: To show that ARMA is firmly against the Outworlder Registration & to let their allies, such as Fanya Niasa, know that they stand with them.
Jan. 5th : Due to the fact that the Overseer and Commander still have not been found, and the trails seem to have gone cold, discussion has begun among those within of voting in new leaders. As the sister of Alistair Greene and one of the founding members of ARMA, Cassandra finds her name being tossed around as a candidate which leaves her feeling uneasy especially when there are others more qualified. Others are suggesting temporarily voting in an Overseer and Commander until the former are found, or until a new system can be found that might not leave them in this situation again in future such as a council.
