Powers/Abilities: Casey Kinmont was very brave and a natural at using magic, but basically knew only the forbidden vanishing spell. She had a pair of spectacles magically enhanced to reveal the true nature of people and beings.
(Strange II#1 (fb) - BTS) - Casey Kinmont was at a baseball match because her grandfather, who was the coach and whom she idolized, had promised to take her shopping afterward.
(Strange II#1) - Bored and texting away, she encountered Dr. Stephen Strange, who was there investigating the demonic forces secretly at play. He magically enhanced her spectacles so that she could see the true nature of things. Casey was shocked to see past the game's illusion and the demons involved. She rushed Strange to her grandfather's office when the demon Tul'uth arrived to collect on the debt. The demon magically bound the two together and incinerated her grandfather before disappearing. His own hands damaged, Strange taught Casey the vanishing spell, using it to free them and later keep the ball in play in a final play-off for the contract, saving the team and the crowd. She chased after Strange, but he teleported away, leaving only his segmented "hashtag" circle symbol.
(Strange II#2) - Casey researched Strange's mystical symbol to find out more about him, using the vanishing spell to make annoyances disappear. She tried to stop her cousin from collecting her grandfather's belongings, later going to her friend Nissa to research Strange further. She traveled across the USA, trying to find leads, eventually meeting the demon Chosk-Dynn. Strange arrived and rescued her, surprised that the magical gifts still worked for her and recognizing her as a natural magic user. However, Baroshtok pulled the two into his dimension, warning them not to use the vanishing spell again (as items magicked away went to his dimension). Returned to Earth, Strange magically teleported them away again.
(Strange II#3) - Casey and Strange's teleportation was intercepted by the demon Laroximous "Larry" Boneflayer to stop a rival demon, Virilian, who was destabilizing magic. They arrived at a fiercely competitive children's pageant. Larry regressed her age so that she could infiltrate the pageant, but she was soon found out by Virilian. Larry, Strange and Casey witnessed the chaos ensuing from Virilian's corruption of magic. Casey gave her soul to Larry to save the children, but magic itself remained in turmoil.
(Strange II#4) - Casey and Strange teleported back to Strange's Greenwich house. Strange handed Casey the Scrying Gem he had used to ask other magically empowered people to briefly stop using magic while he sent his astral self to repair magic, charging Casey to safeguard his body. Larry communicated to her, insisting that she pull him through the Gem before he would return her soul. Distracted, she rushed to Strange's side to stop Silver Dagger from killing Strange, using the vanishing spell to disarm him. This brought Baroshtok crashing down onto Silver Dagger. Strange returned to his body only to see Casey be kidnapped by Baroshtok, her spectacles falling off. Larry passed Casey's orb soul to Strange, who hoped that she was just lost.

Casey Kinmont has no known connections to:
Bill Kinmont was Casey's grandfather who doted on Casey, calling her Princess, and was a player when the pact with Tul'uth had been made with the Loggers baseball team. He later coached the Larks at the same field when the demon came 30 years later to collect on the contract. He was incinerated (and his soul likely taken) by Tul'uth when he challenged the demon.
