So is ghost Casey sort of just wandering with only Cassandra being able to see him? Can he touch anything or have an affect on anyone other than Cassandra? What does he generally do? Is this Casey a figment of Cassandra's mind/imagination, or it the real Casey? Does Cassandra tell Mae/Bea any point about ghost Casey? Sorry for the ton of questions, I'm just excited! ^^
No no, it’s fine! Im happy that you asked! ( > w o )b (Now I apologize for my very long reply oh noooo)..
So first thing’s first… Ghost Casey is THE Casey. Like actual Casey.
He actually has been a wondering spirit who’s soul escaped the horrific hell hole ‘Cave God’ pit not long after the gang escaped it.
Cassandra can see him cause she somehow can just see ghosts (blame Mae lol). Also since Mae is pretty much connected to the cave herself, she too can see Casey, but it freaks her out sometimes when she does (I mean….. I’d bawl my eyes out if I see my dead friend…. Now I just got a cool story idea to write out lol thanks a lot my good friend!).
Bea cannot see him, but she can sometimes feel a ‘cold and drifted’ presence whenever he’s in the room (sometimes she can even smell man’s body spray and doritos in the room lol) She doesn’t know whether to believe her girl friend or daughter that it’s actually ‘Casey’ but she just goes along with it anyway (especially knowing that he’s somewhat passed on after his horrific death). The same goes with Angus and Gregg, they cant see him but they can feel him. Gregg would always try to ‘talk’ to Casey whenever he feels him because he misses his best friend.
At first, ‘Ghost Casey’ just wanted to keep an eye on Mae, since she was the only one to actually skip college and come back to Possom Springs (in which he felt just like Bea when Mae came back, he wanted to leave but was distraught when he couldnt’). He and Mae would talk and get along, even when she got with Bea and when she got pregnant too. He was very shocked to know that Mae pretty much named her daughter after him.
When Mae had her baby, ‘Ghost Casey’ went by ‘Uncle CC’ and it would be awkward for him to be around Cassandra because he didn’t know what to do with her as a baby (he wouldn’t mind holding her… If a ghost knew how to without dropping the baby at least).
When Cassandra got older, he was more like a guide. He would sometimes help Casey out with ‘crimes’ too. But he is mostly there to protect Casey and her soon younger sister, from what you ask? The dangers that still lurk in the woods, that’s what.
But no problemo! Im so happy you stopped by to ask! I hope I answered a good amount of your questions!( ﾟ▽ﾟ)/
