Cassandra, Lost : In the late 1800s, headstrong seventeen-year-old Cassandra fled her family's Maryland plantation with Benedict Van Pradelles, a lieutenant from the French army. They eloped to Revolutionary France and hid in his family's ruined mansion as they plotted their escape from war-torn Paris. A chance meeting with the young pirate Jean Lafitte grew into a clandestine relationship for Cassandra as Lafitte helped them get out of the dangerous city. After a harsh rejection by her father, Cassandra and Benedict ran again, this time to New Orleans. After Benedict's mysterious death, Cassandra embarked once again for her family's home, hoping for a reunion, but the meeting never took place. Her ship was taken by the notorious Lafitte and she disappeared without a trace.
