Cassandra Flick (born 1978) is a main character in the Clockwork series as well as The IT Files. Originally with the Scotland Yard, she later joined Interpol and became a good friend of Lucienne Christophe's. Cassandra later became a member the International Temporal Enforcement Agency as well as the leader of the four-person Team Beta.
Born in Liverpool, England, Cassandra grew up hearing fantastic stories about Scotland Yard and dreamed of one day joining it as her father Nigel Flick had before her. The dream of being in the Yard was quickly achieved and Cassandra became known for being a by-the-book Inspector. After going through two partners Cassandra was paired with Alexis Sutherland, the two going on to solve a murder before it could become a serial case. Eventually Cassandra caught the eye of Raymond Bishop, who recruited her as well as Lucienne Christophe and Jean-Baptiste Odilon to work for Interpol. The trio became fast friends, Cassandra even developing a crush on JB while also befriending Ryan Tully. Cassandra's father Nigel disapproved of her joining Interpol but eventually relented somewhat.
After training Cassandra was frequently partnered with Lucienne, the pair making an excellent team. At one point the pair worked with Ryan in the Ukraine, Cassie later ending up working with Ryan again in Vancouver early in 2007. When Erika Stone began her international crime spree a few months later Lucienne naturally picked Cassandra for her team, also being joined by Hui Lan, Marika Heino and Tasia Spiro. Of the group Cassandra was the most certain that Erika was the culprit when her prints were first found, leading Erika to pick on her the most whenever she bested the agents using Type-7. Eventually the group exposed Erika and recovered the stolen merchandise, though Erika escaped arrest.
Months later Cassandra was reunited with her old team after serving in India for a time. The team's task was to capture kidnappers who'd abducted super-models all over Europe, but the attempts failed and both senior agents, one of them Lucienne, were frozen with no way to help them recover faster. Cassandra and Tasia ended up being the ones who formed and launched the plan that nearly caught the kidnappers, but she was defeated again and then taken herself. One of the kidnappers turend out to be Alexis, who'd quit Scotland Yard after being passed up for Interpol and being separated from Cassandra, having secretly loved her old partner. Cassandra turned down Alexis and for her trouble was used as a test subject for the Type-7 Chip. Eventually Cassandra was rescued and caught Alexis before she could escape, but later on the prison transport was ambushed and Cassandra was kidnapped again, this time presumed dead.
Months after being taken by the Paradise Foundation Cassandra was being used as a field agent to help kidnap important public figures. Eventually Cassandra was recovered by Interpol and was stunned to learned how much time she'd lost. Not wanting to sit on anything ever again, Cassandra admitted her feelings to JB and the pair began a relationship. Eventually Erika Stone was also rescued by Interpol and Cassandra ended up, uneasily, putting the past behind her. Erika and Cassandra never became proper friends, but they no longer hated each other.
After the destruction of the Paradise Foundation Cassandra helped found the International Temporal Enforcement Agency, becoming an Assitant Director and a member of Team Beta with JB. Team Beta often did missions together and JB even proposed at one point, but Cassandra wasn't sure she was ready for marriage and turned him down. The pair worked with Palmira Tiago to take down Club Mannequin, nearly being killed in the process due to Palmira's mistakes. Later after being captured by Barry Finnegan and rescued by Tasia Cassandra decided it was foolish to waste time when unsure about decisions and agreed to marry JB. A month later Gregory Barnes and Anna Sokolov were added to the team, Cassandra named the formal team leader though technically she just shared the position with her fiancee.
Cassandra was forced to make several judgment calls during the final operations against Ouroboros, first helping to stop a riot at Waterloo Station even as her sister Tamera Flick stood frozen by a then-unknown Chrono Flash. Later Cassandra led Team Beta against Ouroboros in New York, deciding to risk enemy casualties in the ope of stopping Richard Stilton. Upon returning to London Cassandra was demoted from Assistant Director in favor of Lucienne, who'd in turn been bumped by Sonia Castillo. One of Cassandra's first assignments after the change was investigating smuggling in Egypt, leading her to briefly reunite with her friend Janice Wang while in Hamunaptra.
When Sandy Vanholt used the Durga Hourglass and the Stillsville Camera to freeze time on a global scale Cassandra was trapped inside ITEA HQ. Separated from JB, Cassandra took solace in a reunion with Ryan Tully, who was separated from his wife Pepper Tully. The two bonded and reminisced a bit, Cassie introducing Ryan to Type-7. When William Volt and Suzanna Ortiz were revealed to have been planning to elope Cassandra saw the situation as a way to raise morale and began to help plan an impromptu wedding, offering her engagement ring for the ceremony as well. After the ceremony happened however Cassandra suffered an emotional breakdown, Ryan ending up comforting her first as a friend and then as a lover. While both had felt the need for intimate contact to help them cope, later when time was finally unfrozen both seemed to regret their actions.
