Casey’s favorite place to go as a child had been Capua Nor. The sea was so pretty, and she always thought it smelled so nice. But after entering the Knights, she became quite sick of the ocean. It was far too large and tossed about too much for her taste. She found out that she had a small degree of seasickness, and on the way to Temza, she brought a bag of ginger tablets to keep herself steady in front of her crew. Now, back in life, she’s still unsteady on the sea. But that hasn’t changed her love for its appearance.
Before I post Casey’s return, I’d like to put up an unrelated headcanon I thought up. This settles the Canary/Casey business.
In the book, it is explained that “Canary” renounced her name when she left her family, and that it was very likely that “Canary” was not even her real name. So as my headcanon, I have this idea.
Casey is the Captain’s birth name. It’s the name she grew up with, the name she relates with most. It’s the name of the woman behind the bow. Canary is the name of the Knight Captain, the face the others see. Canary is the name she gives to those she meets under the role of Captain; hence the Canary brigade. However, when she really trusts someone, she tells them her actual name: Casey.
That’s why Raven and Yeager know and call her Casey. They want to remember the woman, the person, the heart they fell in love with. They know Canary, but they remember Casey.
So now that she’s not a Knight anymore, she decided it’s time to return to her old name. That’s why she’s now Casey, not Canary.
ooc: Casey has never seen the snow. She comes from a town by Nordipolica that was destroyed, where it always rained, but never snowed.
ooc: Casey grew up without her mother, but she always took care of the small garden the two of them started together. In that garden were fire lilies, her mother’s favorite flower. That’s why they’re Casey’s favorite- they make her think of her mother.
