Cassidy Chacon was the former Guardian of Water before Irma Lair. She has red hair (russet-orange in the cartoon), deep blue eyes and freckles. Cassidy is very much like Irma, as she loves to have fun, and often likes to make jokes.
Little is known about Cassidy in the comics, but in the cartoon she lived in a house in Heatherfield with her mother Emily, and the two were very close. Cassidy was very "aquatic": she liked swimming, and was on the Sheffield Institute swim team, the Sheffield Sea Slugs. Cassidy also liked going to the beach. She described Shell Beach as her favorite place in town. She mentioned she liked walking into the ocean, looking at cute boys and going for a swim. Cassidy had compassion for all living things and wanted to be a Doctor, more specifically a pediatrician.
She became a Guardian at 15 years old. Being the past Guardian of Water, Cassidy had the power to manipulate water at will and mind control. She was later entrusted with the Heart of Kandrakar when the Council of Kandrakar realized its power was corrupting Nerissa. Nerissa became obsessed with the power lost. She begged, and later ordered Cassidy to give the Heart back. When Cassidy refused, she was accidentally killed by Nerissa, who as punishment, was locked away in Mount Thanos.
When Nerissa rose again and tricked Will Vandom into giving her the Heart of Kandrakar, the W.I.T.C.H. Guardians broke into the Heatherfield Observatory to look at Cassidy's Star, which can only be seen by Will. Cassidy appears to Will and reveals she has been waiting for their contact since the time of her death, with silence as her only companion. She says she bears no ill will towards Nerissa for killing her or the Oracle for letting her die, claiming that they did only what they were supposed to do to keep balance in the universe. Their conversation ends with Cassidy giving Will her own Heart of Kandrakar to battle Nerissa before Cassidy vanishes into her star, assumed to be a sign her spirit has moved on.
However, in the cartoon, in hopes of reforming C.H.Y.K.N., Nerissa bound Cassidy's spirit to the mortal realm years after her death, and tried to remind her of her favorite things and dreams to make her want to live again. Cassidy refused her several times, saying she had no regrets about being dead and that she didn't trust Nerissa's intentions; still, Nerissa finally made her want to live again by taking her to see the still-living Emily. Cassidy's compassion for her mother, who missed her a lot, made her break down and tell Nerissa she wanted to live again, so she could be with Emily again. This gave Nerissa the edge she needed to take control of Cassidy's mind.
Cassidy remained a mind-controlled spirit until all of C.H.Y.K.N. was rejoined, then she was brought back to life and given her Guardian powers back. She was later able to break free of Nerissa's mind control during a battle with the W.I.T.C.H. group. At one point, Cassidy was thrown into a pool and Irma quickly used her powers to influence people's minds to free her, but as soon as the mind control was gone she was imprisoned in the Seal of Nerissa along with the others.
After Nerissa was defeated, Cassidy was freed. She rejoined her 80-year old mother and continued her life.
She is voiced by Susan Chesler in the animated series.
in the comics she has all of the powers that Irma does, she also possessed the powers bestowed upon the keeper of the heart (except for Quintessence) she also had the ability to create a shadow of the heart, which would work like the normal heart.
Cassidy was the previous Guardian of water, until C.H.Y.K.N. disbanded. When she regained her power and mortal form through Nerissa, her power was twice Irma's power.
She also had mind control, and Irma used her own power to set Cassidy free.
- Nerissa reveals that Cassidy wanted to be a pediatrician.
- In the Animated series, Cassidy is a lesbian. Greg Weisman (season 2 producer) revealed at CONvergence that he personally believed Nerissa and Cassidy were lovers, and later in a Q&A he revealed that CHYKN likely knew this, but they did keep it secret. He believed that they were dating when Nerissa killed Cassidy, saying Cassidy is a lesbian, and Nerissa is bisexual. There is NO evidence of this in the show, and certainly not in the comics. Whether or not Greg was kidding (this is would have been a very mature concept for a children's show at the time) is currently unknown. It may have potentially been explored in the canceled Season 3.
