Cass Zimmer moved to Tanimar from her homeland of Merasong to live with her uncle after her parents were killed in a raid. Cass made the trek from Merasong to Tanimar by herself at the age of 18. Once there, her Uncle Whitaker, who belonged to House Chimera, began teaching her how to be a carpenter, a trade he thought that anyone could do, regardless of their gender.
Shortly after Cass turned 19, she met Terin Zimmer, an adventurer of some repute. Terin seduced Cass, and after a night of what he considered romance, left Tanimar, never to be seen by Cass again. Nine months later Cass gave birth to twin girls, Chloe and Zoe. Through all of this, Cass continued her training in carpentry, eventually becoming (almost) as skilled in her craft as her uncle Whitaker.
On the twins first birthday Whitaker was killed while building a new house for a noble of House Chimera, leaving Cass alone to care for the twins and take over her uncle’s business. Once Whitaker had passed, Cass found it hard getting regular work, because unlike her uncle, most citizens of Tanimar were unwilling to hire a female carpenter. Times were tough for her and the twins for a few years until Tayla Daniels offered her a chance for regular work and a position in her husband’s new settlement of Boon. Cass was preparing for a return trip to Merasong before the offer from Tayla, but now she was being given the opportunity she just couldn’t pass up: to show everyone that not only could a woman be a carpenter, but she could be a better carpenter than any man on Karonus.
Note: Sometime shortly after the death of Whitaker, Cass took on Kond and Noko as apprentice carpenters.
