Cassius was a Roman politician in the Ancient Rome, who conspired and eventually proceeded with the killing of emperor Julius Caesar during the event known as Ides of March.
In the averted timeline Julius Caesar knew that his friend, Cassius would eventually conspire to kill him due to owning a Rise of Rome book from the future he stole from Nate Heywood. After marching to Rome after winning the Gallic Wars with his legion, Caesar killed both Cassius and Brutus.
When the timeline was restored, Cassius proceeded with killing as in the original timeline.
