Cassandra (Encantadia)

Cassandra is a fictional character from the Filipino fantasy-themed television saga "Encantadia" produced by GMA Network. Cassandra is played by Filipina child actress Ella Guevara. In the last chapter, adult Cassandra is portrayed by 2005 Miss International Precious Lara Quigaman.

Family affiliation

Cassandra is the daughter of Lira, and, hence, one of the "Sang'gres" of Lireo. She was magically born after the death of Lira. Cassiopea brought her to life using Lira's hair as well as her own blood. Cassandra is the granddaughter of Ybrahim and Amihan (Lira's parents). However, she also addresses Amihan's sisters Alena (also wife to Ybrahim), Danaya and Pirena as "Ila" ("Grandmother"), though they are actually her grandaunts.

History

The prophecy stated that Cassandra is the key to the return of the fallen kingdom of Etheria. Cassandra was kidnapped by an Etherian named Animus and imprisoned in a mystic hourglass. Cassandra is also the heiress to the thrones of Lireo and Sapiro.

After her abduction by Animus and two other Etherians, Cassandra was placed within the Golden Hourglass to be its source of power. Her heritage as the Last Sang'gre meant that she had the abilities to provide energy for the Golden Hourglass, which is the source of Etheria's power.

When the Jewel of the Elements was given by Emre to the four rulers of Adamya, Lireo, Sapiro, and Hathoria, the elemental powers of the Sang'gres were returned. They were able to defeat Avria, Andora, Odessa, Juvila, and Arkrey who were the guardians of Etheria's Hourglass. The Sang'gres seized the Golden Hourglass and simultaneously blasted it with orbs of energy. Cassandra appeared in front of the Hourglass unharmed and safe. She was happily reunited with her family. Avria returned to the Sang'gres accompanied by the snake goddess Ether. The Bathaluman emitted a blast of energy from her mouth, which was easily blocked by Alena. The Sang'gres then threw the Golden Hourglass in the air and again sent orbs of great power at it, destroying the source of Etheria's power. The goddess Ether disappeared, together with all the powers of the Etherians. Etheria began to crumble into dust. The Sang'gres teleported out of Avria's palace and went to the Time Portal.

Animus appeared with his two other companions to thwart the Sang'gres from leaving the Etherian time period. Alena and Danaya slayed the two companions while Amihan and Pirena fought Animus. He proved too strong for the two Sang'gres. Ybrahim returned to his senses and defeated Animus. Just as Animus was about to strike the Sang'gres once more, Cassandra sends a violet colored energy blast that throws him to the ground.

Cassandra, together with her grandmothers and grandfather, returns to the present time of Encantadia. Because of the threat of Ether, she, together with her mother, goes to the mortal realm just as Armea does. She meets up with Armea and tells her about the Sang'gre mark making Armea realize that she is also a Sang'gre.

As written in Encantadia's rich history by Arman, she grew up to become the Queen of Lireo because she was of age. Danaya gave the crown and sceptre to Cassandra. Alena, Ybrahim and Cassiopea come back to Encantadia to visit Cassandra's coronation.
