Bio: Previously identified as the Hooded One, and assumed to be a fallen Templar, a “pale bellied grub” in service to rats. Blind in his right eye and sports a vicious scar. He leads a small party into the remains of Cricket’s Glen following the attack, search of missed valuables and clues to other exiled Templar. He follows the trail of Pilot the Tall and Karic, and tracks them as far as the Barren Lands, reluctant to do battle with a starving cat, and seemingly guided to his quarry by the light of a firefly. Cassius is overcome, along with The Many, by the flood unleashed by Karic’s mystical pouch. Cassius attacks Pilot amidst the Fields of Gold before the entrance to the Great Ash Tree, and accuses him of being the traitorous grub who guided rats in the destruction of Cricket’s Glen and betrayed Deishun to his death. He claims to have killed other exiled Templar: Methos and his disciples. When Karic leaps into the fray, Cassius stabs him through the gut.
