Who is Cassidy

My name is Cassidy

My name is Cassidy

A professional thief, specialized in robberies. Uses his skills to steal, but, following a personal "code of honor", leaves no innocent blood behind him

Raymond “Ray” Cassidy, 42, a well-trained body and a mind ready for action, is a strong, determined man, with a past in the army. He’s a consummate professional who has devoted himself to theft and robbery with great skill, but he’s never unnecessarily violent. His “M.O.” is ruled by a strict and personal “code of honor”: Ray’s jobs are planned as commando operations, avoiding – unless he’s forced to – the involvment of the "civilians", as he refers to the law-abiding citizens. No shooting on civilians, no taking civilians as hostages – these are Ray’s rules.

If necessary, Cassidy can be ruthless, but he’s never unwarrentedly cruel, a fact that makes him well-respected in the criminal circles. One of his peculiar habits is to always wear the same black suit, and always wear his wedding ring during his jobs. His car is a black, NOS-boosted Dodge Aspen 360 V8 coupé, that allows him to shake every cop off his back. His more frequent partners in crime are the big and wise Juan Cuervo and Aaron “Ace” Gibson, ladies’ man, thief and gambler extraordinaire. Two friends, as far as one can be a friend in the world of crime, that will share many of Cassidy’s adventures. On the night of August 16, 1977 (the same night when the King of Rock, Elvis Presley, died in Graceland), Raymond Cassidy, after a robbery ended the wrong way, finds himself severely injured, on his Dodge riddled with bullets. He doesn’t know yet that he’s going to meet his fate...
