Created by Peter Brash and Paula Quickly, the role of Cassie was cast with Alexis Thorpe, who had previously portrayed Rianna Miner on The Young and the Restless. Thorpe appeared as a contract player from July 8, 2002, to December 1, 2003, at which point the character was believed to have been murdered, reappearing on April 27, 2004, alive and well. Thorpe made infrequent appearances until June 7, 2005, without a proper exit.
Cassie and her twin brother, Rex, crash-landed in Salem during a meteor shower and are originally believed to be aliens. The twins had matching tattoos resembling the Phoenix, calling their connection to Stefano DiMera and John Black into question. As time goes on, they believed to be the children of Tony DiMera and Marlena Evans who had taken away as toddlers and genetically manipulated by Stefano's scientific genius, Dr. Wilhelm Rolf. This was proven false. In reality, a sperm sample had been stolen from Roman Brady during his years as Stefano's captive and combined with eggs taken from Kate Roberts.
At first, Cassie pursues and eventually kisses Shawn-Douglas Brady, unaware he is her cousin. Cassie then becomes involved with Lucas Roberts, unaware he is her half-brother, almost sleeping with him before learning of their relationship. The twins keep their true parentage secret for a while in hopes of joining the DiMera family. Soon after it is revealed publicly, Cassie is killed by the "Salem Stalker" and her stabbed body is staged inside a Thanksgiving piñata; Kate is arrested after being found holding a bloody knife, but the real killer was a mind-controlled Marlena. Months later, Cassie and the other victims are found alive on a remote island, "Melaswen," in a recreation of Salem. Shortly after returning to the real Salem, Cassie is last seen leaving the main floor of the Brady Pub to go upstairs.
Show dialogue eventually established that Cassie has moved to Chicago and, as of 2018, remains single.
