Cassie Dugan (AKA Bluebird)
Cassie Dugan is Vice-Principle Martha Dugan’s daughter. She’s the reason the Dugan family moved to Freedom City and why Martha took her position with the Claremont Academy. Cassie can fly and has been able to since she was a toddler. She’s never known any school except the Academy, and while she’s enjoyed her time there, she can’t wait to leave. Now a sullen 15-year-old, Cassie is “over” superheroes and has very little interest in being one herself. She has excellent control over her flight and maneuverability…better than most heroes, actually. She’s recently begun exhibiting telekinetic abilities, but she’s keeping them secret from everyone because she’s afraid they’ll expect her to join the Next-Gen and be a superhero. She chose the codename Bluebird when she was in grade school because she leaves a blue ribbon of light behind her as she flies. It’s more of a nickname now and she’s referred to by many permutations of the name, such as Blue, Birdie, B.B., and Beebs by people on campus. Her burgeoning telekinetic abilities also have a blue hue to them.
