Cassandra is a major character in Tangled: Before Ever After and its follow-up series. She is Rapunzel's handmaiden and close friend, who wishes to join the royal guards.

Appearance Edit

Cassandra is a pale-skinned young woman around Rapunzel's age with dark pink lips, hazel eyes and black bob-cut hair with gray highlights.

Her signature outfit is a grayish-brown shirt, black leather gloves, a dark brown belt with a purse and a dagger on it, dark brown-and-red striped leggings and brown boots.

When performing her duties as Rapunzel's handmaiden, Cassandra dresses in a blue and white dress, with a white headdress.

Personality Edit

Cassandra is described as being "tough-as-nails", a fitting description for someone who wishes to join the royal guard. She is snarky, sarcastic and has a somewhat dry sense of humor. She is also very intelligent, often subtly insulting Eugene in clever ways that go over his (what she considers to be very big) head. Despite this, she is extremely supportive and protective toward Rapunzel, her polar opposite—so much so, that she openly holds animosity for Eugene, believing him to be selfish and undeserving of Rapunzel's love and friendship. One of the reasons for this belief is because she feels that Eugene puts his own desires before Rapunzel's, which she expresses to Eugene. In the series, however, their relationship gradually becomes less hostile, and slightly more playful as the two spend more time together. In "Fitzherbert P.I.", Cassandra genuinely admired Eugene's determination to become a royal guard, and actively assisted him in proving his worth to her father. It was later shown that Eugene's quirkiness had started to warm up to Cassandra, who found amusement in his excitement to school the guards as head of a training class.

Aside from her no-nonsense persona, Cassandra is also a free-spirit, not unlike Rapunzel. Though she has a more cynical way of going about life, Cassandra also finds joy in adventure, living life to the fullest, and experiencing new things. This is most notably seen during "Wind in My Hair", where Cassandra is seen enjoying herself almost as much as Rapunzel.

Although loyal to King Frederic and Queen Arianna, Cassandra is willing to break their rules (and risk her job) for the sake of Rapunzel's happiness and to accomplish her own dreams; this is seen when Cassandra offered to take Rapunzel beyond the kingdom's wall to explore some of the outside world and escape the pressures of royalty. Doing so required much stealth and cunning, traits Cassandra revealed herself to have abundantly that night.

In "Rapunzel's Enemy" and "Fitzherbert P.I.", it is shown that Cassandra respects Corona's history a great deal, and considers it an esteemed honor to uphold the kingdom's traditions.

In "Challenge of the Brave", it is revealed that Cassandra has some insecurities about how she is seen just as a girl/handmaiden instead of the strong, skilled, and capable warrior who deserves as much respect as anyone in the royal guard. These insecurities, and the desire to prove herself can sometimes drive Cassandra to act selfishly, even to those she care about. Once she realizes her mistakes, however, Cassandra is mature enough to own up to her faults and make amends as best she can. Cassandra's cynical nature gives her trust issues. Examples are that she doesn't forgive people easily, she doesn't like sharing her feelings, keep secrets to herself, or she won't except help. This is one of the reasons she has a rivalry with Eugene because he was a thief in the past and she thinks he's ignorant enough to not address other people's feelings (even though it's not his fault he can't tell).

In "Not in the Mood", her personality develops a bit. She was usually merciless and hostile toward Eugene and other enemies, but she realizes she should be more compassionate. For starters, she made friends with a man who was large and scary, but friendly.

Powers and Abilities Edit

Cassandra possesses no special or magical abilities, making her a normal, everyday human woman.

She does however possess skills in horseback ridding, fencing, archery, athletics, and other skills in combat; which she had learned for being the daughter of the Captain of the Guards. She is also shown to be very clever when she understood Rapunzel's clues, had helped Varian with his project and spotting the mistakes in letters from a suspicious character. As well as possessing skills in acting, as she had tricked a Separatist of Saporia member into thinking that she has feelings for him, so he would come to Corona and she could uncover his true intentions. Cassandra also has skills in sowing, cleaning and others skills that are needed for her handmaiden duties.

Weapons Edit

They are mostly of sharp blades like swords, axes, arrows, a few types of shuriken, many kinds of knifes and daggers (which she sometimes places in her saddle bag), saws and even a spear. There is also a few kinds of clubs, mace, bombs, a longbow along with a crossbow and even a grappling-hook in her collection. Along with a few other types of weapons.

Cassandra is mainly seen using one of her swords, the small dagger-knife that she keeps in her boot and a bow that she shoots her arrows with.

Rapunzel Corona Edit

Cassandra is Rapunzel handmaiden and closest friend in Corona, since she had started to live in the castle as a princess.

Eugene Fitzherbert Edit

Eugene and Cassandra don't get on so well and bickered like siblings from time to time. Even when they have two things in common; they both care about Rapunzel and were orphaned as children, with no idea who their birth parents were.

Captain of the Guards Edit

While Cassandra isn't the captain's blood child, he loves her as any father would love their own child, just as Cassandra looks up to the man that raised her.

Varian Edit

When Cassandra first heard about Varian she had thought that he was a wizard that could help her and Rapunzel understand the princess's new, returned hair, until the two met the "powerful wizard" and discovered that he is in fact a fourteen year old alchemist.
