Anyone care to confirm if you can perform the heart transplant on Cassidu in the game? I heard that you could somewhere Mr. Teatime 13:49, 9 Feb 2005 (GMT)

Can someone check if he will join you if you are a slaver, but you have postive Karma? Mimir 13:51, 9 Feb 2005 (GMT)

Cassidy will not join you if you are a Slaver, a Childkiller, or have a Karma of -101 or below. You can however do these things after he's joined you and he won't leave.--Senornacho 17:32, 9 Feb 2005 (GMT)

Also, the only place I could think where Cassidy could get a heart transplant would be the Sierra Army Depot, in the Vault-Tec Organ Extractor room. Unfortunately, you can only get brains from the extraction process, even though it lists other options.--Senornacho 17:44, 9 Feb 2005 (GMT)

Those statistics would look nice in a big table, if no one has anything better to do.--Fez 07:32, 16 Mar 2005 (GMT)

Is the Stage system going by levels? Because If I recall correctly can't he level up more than 4 times?--ZasZ 23:26, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

Check with the Bible.--dotz 19:23, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

about his name

i'm pretty sure he is not John Cassidy but Cassidy McRae, "Cassidy" can't be his forename coz he clearly states that his father named him Cassidy after comic character

Cassidy was named by his father after a vampire in Garth Ennis' Preacher comics ("Said he was a mean sonuvabitch").--dotz 09:26, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, either his last name is McRae or there's some bug in the game. It's either when you try to sell him or get him professional medical treatment, that I've seen his name written as McRae rather than Cassidy. But on the "Preacher" part...prove it? Tour86rocker 08:55, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Just a matter of preference?

I have some serious trouble equipping Cassidy with anything but a shotgun. He seems to *love* the Pancor Jackhammer, and I can't blame him, but since he *also* seems to *love* burst firing it at long range, I quickly run out of shells. So I gave him a Power Fist as a fall-back. I now realize why he didn't equip that; because he was on "Ranged, then Melee", which of course leaves out "Unarmed" weapons. But when I try to give him a P90, he still prefers his bare fists, no matter what the "weapon preference" settings are. Similarly, I have also given him a Ripper while on the "Ranged then Melee". For a moment I thought he maybe couldn't use those weapons at all, possibly qualifying as "energy weapons," since they use energy cells, but A) they're not energy weapons, B) I could get him to use the Power Fist when set to "Unarmed", and C) that still doesn't explain why he can't/doesn't use the P90. He'll use just about any other small gun, though, even something a little heavier, like the H&K CAW, but maybe just because it's a shotgun ;P -NightChime 08:03, September 27, 2009 (UTC)

  • He can't use the P90 because the sprite has no animations for using the SMG sprite - i.e., the H&K P90c, the .223 pistol, the 10mm SMG, and others. I don't know about the Ripper, but if I had to guess, I'd say he lacks the knife sprits as well. 14:13, October 4, 2010 (UTC)


I'm kinda new to Fallout 2, but I've discovered that when I tell Cassidy to wait me anywhere. He started to attack me for no reason. If I give him some strong drugs while he was attacking me. He would act like a standing corpse. Why?

-Do you have Goris in your party? If you do, make sure you always tell Cassidy to wait before you tell Goris. I had the same problem, and telling Cassidy to wait first seemed to fix it.

-Giving him drugs kills him because of his heart condition. The standing part is a glitch. --Pongsifu 15:02, December 2, 2010 (UTC)


What age is Cassidy and when was he born?

Her real mother?

I think Rose of Sharon Cassidy is the daughter of Sharon Cassidy, isn't she ? Overall reads like "of Sharon Cassidy", my theory on what could be me or whoever else is her mother? Alessio79 07:27, August 2, 2011 (UTC)

Rose of Sharon is a common name for a several different species of flowers. 09:53, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

Old World Blues

Is there any chance we'll meet him here live or dead? I'm not sure how old he'd be though.--BLACK LENNY 00:30, August 17, 2011 (UTC)


MacRae is the character from the first Falout who uses the same sprite. It probably was the working title for Cassidy when F2 was in the works. 09:46, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

After F2 refs?

I think I found a ref for his (and more) after FO2 actions:

Fallout Bible 5#Questions

9b. Hey thanks for answering. You probobly can't find the other questions because I was at my bro's when i sent em. I asked about what happened to some of the fallout 2 npcs after the game. We know myron gets stabbed by a jet addict ironically in the den. And Marcus goes off to go do some heroics of his own. But what about cassidy, sulik and the EC squadren to name a few.

"Cassidy and Sulik: Can't say, no documentation exists. To be honest, I'll probably leave their fates open, since I don't want to pigeonhole two of the most favorite NPC allies from Fallout 2. I kind of hope that Cassidy eventually got his heart meds, though. At last word, Sulik returned to the primitive tribe for a few moons (months) after breaking paths with the Chosen One, then headed east in search of his sister. Cassidy went on to search for Texas, breaking south through NCR and past Dayglow."
"The punks on the tanker also survived, and they had a great view of the Poseidon oil rig exploding. They eventually into an uneasy trading relationship with the Shi after the destruction of the Hubologists, and the two groups went on to make San Francisco a major fishing and trading center."
"And here's the follow-up to the follow-up above:"
