Past History

Spencer Cassadine was born February 20, 2006 during a deadly encephalitis outbreak in Port Charles that struck both his parents, Courtney Matthews and Nikolas Cassadine. He was premature, and his mother died after an emergency C-section. Jasper Jacks lied to say the baby was his, and was aided in his deceit by Carly Corinthos. Eventually, the baby was returned to Nikolas who named him Spencer after Lulu and Lucky Spencer.

After some scary kidnappings when he was a baby, Spencer traveled with his father, but when they returned to Port Charles he was smitten with Emma Scorpio Drake. They dated, but she was turned off by his attitude that he was better than people without money, and she began dating Cameron Spencer instead. Spencer did all he could to win her back. Meanwhile, he grew close to his father’s girlfriend Dr. Britt Westbourne and wanted them to marry. Spencer did all he could to get them back together after they broke up, and even conspired with Britt and pretended to run away.

Spencer was badly burned in an accidental fire that happened during his 8th birthday party at Wyndemere. He was treated at the Shriners Hospital and returned to Port Charles wearing a protective mask on his face. He hated his appearance, but grew confident again after his mother’s angel came to visit and taught him that beauty was more than what you look like, but how you acted and treated people too.
