Cassie Drake, as she appears in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End
c. 2017-2018 sometime after A Thief's End
Treasure hunter (legitimately)
She is voiced and motion captured by Kaitlyn Dever.
Cassie was born sometime after the events of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and is an only child. Due to only having an appearance in the Epilogue, not much is known about Cassie except that she has inherited her parents' love for treasure hunting, history, and archaeology, often accompanying them on their expeditions. She is presumably between 11-13 years of age as a teenager.
Events of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End - Epilogue
A month before a trip to India, the Drake family appears to be going on a boat ride. Cassie finds her father's keys to his secret cabinet, and finds his past items (his journal, holster, the St. Dismas Cross, etc.). Cassie finds and reads through her grandmother's journal on Captain Henry Avery, and finds two pictures of her father and uncle in adolescence, and a picture of her parents with Victor Sullivan with the treasure of El Dorado.
Cassie is a teenage girl with a petite stature. Her appearance shares many similarities with her mother, with them both having dirty blonde hair, fair skin, and hazel-green eyes. However, her mannerisms (including her cursing) are reminiscent of her father. A unique trait is her large, black framed glasses.
- Originally, Cassie was going to be a male character. When game director Neil Druckmann introduced the character to the concept artist at Naughty Dog, she simply asked him "What if it was a girl?", which prompted the team to change Cassie's gender as that wouldn't affect or change anything in the story.
- The design on Cassie's shirt resembles an illustration of the Cintamani Stone seen in a book during Chapter 2 of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
- By exploring the various clickable objects through the house in the Epilogue, players can find out a little more about Cassie and her interests, for example:
- The posters in her room imply that Cassie enjoys rock climbing, surfing, photography, and video games.
- She has a copy of Crash Bandicoot, which is implied to be Elena's as the high score is the same as it was in Chapter 4.
- A guitar is also shown in the corner of her bedroom, as well as a guitar case.
- She is a fan of savage starlight.
- Cassie is also a fan of the graphic novel Nameless City by Faith Erin Hicks.
- She is an accomplished scuba diver.
- In her room is a poster depicting art of a pregnant woman wearing a gas mask and holding a gun, titled "American Daughters". This is believed to be an Easter egg for The Last of Us, another Naughty Dog game.
- Cassie is the first member of her family bearing the Drake surname to have been born with it. Nathan and Sam adopted it, their birth surname being Morgan, while Elena took it as her married name.
- Due to "Cassie" being a popular nickname for the name "Cassandra", it is possible that she was named after her paternal grandmother. If that's the case, which it likely is, her full first name could be Cassandra.
- She can read Latin.
- Cassie's watch might be either a Casio DW-5600P-4ER or a BGD-501-4BER.
- Cassie wearing the watch on her right hand suggests she is left-hand dominant as watches are usually worn on the wrist opposite the dominant hand, so a right-hand dominant person would wear a watch on their left wrist, and vice versa.
- Nate and Elena having a daughter has some irony, considering that both Nolan North and Emily Rose, the people who play Elena and Nathan, are both parents of two sons.

Let me think, does that affect or change anything? No? Cool, that’s different. Yeah, let’s do it."
