The Cassadines are a fictional aristocratic family on the American soap opera General Hospital. Various family members have been sometime residents of Port Charles and of the private Cassadine-owned island in Greece.

BackgroundEdit

The Cassadines made their first appearance in the 1980s, when Mikkos Cassadine, the patriarch of the family, along with his brothers Victor and Tony, were involved in various nefarious plans, including the Ice Princess storyline, a plot to freeze the world using a weather machine. When Luke, Laura and Robert Scorpio foiled the plan, both Mikkos and his brother Tony are killed while their other brother Victor is arrested. Mikkos's widow Helena Cassadine appears in Port Charles just in time to curse Luke and Laura from the sidelines of their wedding.

The Cassadines also abducted Laura Spencer and forced her to marry Stavros, after telling Laura that Luke was dead. During her captivity in Greece, Laura gave birth to Stavros's son Prince Nikolas Cassadine. When Laura discovered Luke was alive, she left Nikolas behind in Greece to be raised by his uncle Stefan Cassadine, Helena's second son. Stefan and Laura had also been lovers and Laura believed Stefan to be her son's father instead of Stavros.

Stefan eventually took control of the family and in 1996, he and Nikolas moved to Port Charles with Alexis Davis who was later revealed to be Mikkos' illegitimate daughter (Natasha Cassadine) with Swedish opera singer Kristin Bergman. Since 1996, Helena returns from time to time to terrorize the citizens of Port Charles. Helena has been obsessed with gaining control over Nikolas, who is heir to the Cassadine legacy. She brought her dead son, Stavros, back to life in 2001, after keeping him in the basement of General Hospital for many years. However, Stavros was presumed to have been killed for good after Luke pushed him into a bottomless pit. Stefan was also murdered by Luke in 2003, at which time with seemingly every vengeful Cassadine out of the way, Nikolas declared the war between the Spencers and the Cassadines was over. On April 3, 2013, Luke Spencer shot and killed Helena on board the Haunted Star ship, which Helena had stolen after kidnapping Luke's daughter Lulu for Stavros to marry.  On April 10th, Stavros appears on the Cassadine Island where he has Luke and Laura. He had frozen Lulu in hs ice chamber.

Alexis has given birth to three daughters, Samantha McCall, Kristina Corinthos-Davis, and Molly Lansing-Davis. Nikolas now has a child, Spencer Cassadine, with the late Courtney Matthews. Sam had a stillborn daughter, Lila McCall, with Sonny Corinthos. Sam also has a son with Jason Morgan named Danny.

Cassadine IndustriesEdit

Cassadine Industries is a large international conglomerate, which was founded by the Cassadine family in the late 1970s as a front to cover for their dirty dealings. But the business took off, being controlled by Mikkos Cassadine, Stavros Cassadine, Helena Cassadine, and Nikolas Cassadine amongst others. In December 2005, a single Cassandine Industries account was estimated to be worth $15 million at the time. As of May 2009, Cassadine Industries was estimated to be worth over 20 billion dollars.
