|First appearance||March 17, 2010|
|Last appearance||July 23, 2010|
|Cause/reason||Fatally shot by Mac Scorpio|
|Created by||Robert Guza Jr.|
Warren first appears on March 17, 2010, when Lucky Spencer questions him in order to establish a timeline of the night of Kristina Davis's first attack. Being a lawyer, Warren is resistant and dismissive, but eventually agrees. After a bit of questioning, Mac comes to them and says Mayor Floyd feels the Bauers have shown good faith by coming in and their interview is over. The Bauers are sympathetic to Kristina, but feel since her father is a mob boss, anyone could have attacked her.
Warren reappears on April 2, where he speaks with Jasper "Jax" Jacks and Skye Quartermaine, and subsequently speaks to Kiefer about Lucky and Dante's ongoing investigation into Kristina's attack. Warren bluntly states that he thinks Kiefer never should have gotten involved with Kristina and encourages his son to talk to her. Lucky and Dante, having already deduced that Kiefer was the one who attacked Kristina, later question Warren and his wife, Melinda, over the attack, but they aren't much help.
On April 6, Warren meets with Jax on business, and discovers from Olivia Falconeri that Kiefer has been hit by a car and brought to the hospital. Upon arriving, Melinda and Warren find Lucky questioning Kiefer. Warren pulls Lucky out of the room and criticizes him for trying to question Kiefer in his condition, and Lucky informs him that Kristina has been attacked again and that she has finally named Kiefer as her assailant both times. Kiefer dies from his injuries, and Warren immediately gives a press conference, offering a reward for information on their son's killer.
Warren discovers from Mac Scorpio that Alexis was the one who hit Kiefer and that it was an accident. Outraged, Warren convinces himself that Alexis did it on purpose and swears revenge on both Alexis and Kristina. Later, Warren harasses an already-overwrought Kristina until Alexis and Jax arrive and force him out of the room.
Subsequently, Warren posts a memorial page online, painting Kiefer as an ideal person and student and also adding a video, where he gives his own scenario; he states that Alexis deliberately ran down Kiefer, and also claims that it was Ethan Lovett (whom Kristina had originally accused of beating her to protect Kiefer from her father's wrath) who attacked Kristina all along, and that Alexis and Sonny had convinced Kristina to lie and tell everyone that Kiefer was the one who attacked her because of their friendship with Luke Spencer, Ethan's father. He later confronts Kristina in her own home and, in an attempt to get her to change her statement, fuels her grief and guilt by repeatedly reminding her that Kiefer loved her. When Alexis arrives home, she criticizes Warren for his actions, and his demeanor immediately changes; Warren calls Kristina a pathological liar and Alexis a child killer, and vows that he will make Alexis pay for what she did to Kiefer.
Warren subsequently confronts Mac at the police station and demands to know why Alexis is still running around free. When Alexis arrives, Warren demands to know why she didn't stop and refuses to believe her story. Alexis calmly asks Warren to stop making everyone miserable, but Warren stops her and promises to send her to prison. Alexis' oldest daughter, Sam McCall, arrives to see Alexis arguing with Warren. Warren furiously continues to deny Kiefer's abuse of Kristina, and angrily declares that he will not stop until the whole world knows that Alexis is a murderer and that Kristina is nothing but a "promiscuous little tramp" who deserved to get beat up, at which point Sam loses her temper and punches him in the face.
Lucky is roped into the confrontation as Warren and Sam exchanged heated words. Warren points out the evidence they had originally found against Ethan and accuses both Lucky and the Davis women of framing Kiefer. Dismissing any and all evidence against Kiefer, Warren leaves, but not before telling Alexis that she belongs in prison and he will see to it personally that she is sent there.
On May 13, Alexis goes to court for Kiefer's hit-and-run. Much to Warren's outrage, the jury rules in Alexis' favor, and she gets off with a suspended sentence and community service. Warren subsequently files a civil suit, vowing to take Alexis for every penny she has. On May 18, Nikolas Cassadine confronts Warren and attempts to get him to back down. Despite Nik's best efforts, Warren refuses to drop the case.
Proceeding these events, however, Warren begins to unravel and begins to call Claire Walsh's office twice a day for a month and using whatever tactic he can think of to try and pressure her into reopening Kristina's abuse investigation, to no avail. Warren later approaches Kristina, Alexis, Molly, and Sonny at the country club to inform Alexis that he is going through with the civil suit and that her court date is coming up soon. Warren continues to heckle Kristina and Alexis, and just as he begins to get really aggressive, Sonny gets in his face and warns him to back off. Asserting that abusers learn their habits from others, Sonny openly accuses Warren of having abused Kiefer himself. Though Warren denies it, it is obvious from the look on his face that Sonny is correct. Nonetheless, Warren leaves without causing any more trouble, vowing that Kiefer will get justice.
Subsequently, on July 21, Warren arrives at General Hospital and demands Kristina's medical records from Epiphany Johnson, but she refuses to give them to him. Just as Warren begins to criticize Epiphany for helping to protect Sonny's "little lying slut of a daughter", Olivia enters and calls him out. After the argument, Warren threatens to sue Epiphany and the hospital for obstruction of justice unless he gets Kristina's medical records by the end of the day. After he leaves the room, Epiphany throws his court order in the trash.
Coincidentally, Kristina is in the hospital with a sprained ankle, and Warren corners her in a room shortly after the hospital is locked down due to Franco kidnapping the newborn Aiden Cassadine. Warren demands that Kristina sign a release for her medical records, but Kristina openly refuses and berates him for abusing Kiefer. Warren snaps and attempts to slap Kristina, but just as he is about to do so, Michael, having heard Warren screaming at Kristina, rushes to Kristina's rescue.
In the ensuing skirmish, Michael quickly overpowers Warren and brutally strangles him to near-death, but is stopped from doing so by Lucky, Ethan, Maya, Mac, and Steve. Warren claims that the attack was unprovoked and demands that Lucky arrest Michael, but Lucky and Mac immediately deduce what really happened and cleverly make it impossible for Warren to press charges against Michael. Subsequently, Warren suffers a psychotic break and induces a shootout, critically wounding Mac and Ethan before turning his attention to Michael and Kristina. Before he can pull the trigger, however, Mac garners enough strength to shoot him in the back. Warren quickly succumbs to his wounds, but not before telling Kristina, "This is all your fault."

|Cause/reason||Stabbed and thrown from a cliff to his death by Luke Spencer|
|Created by||Robert Guza, Jr. and Karen Harris|
|Occupation||Former CEO of General Hospital|
|Residence||Port Charles, New York|
Stefan Darius Mikkosovich Cassadine is a fictional character played by actor Stephen Nichols from June 28, 1996 to January 16, 2002 and June 2, 2003 to October 16, 2003 on the ABC soap opera General Hospital.
Stefan is the second son of villain Mikkos Cassadine — who once attempted to freeze the world with a weather machine in the an infamous 1980s Luke and Laura storyline — and his equally evil wife Helena. The complex and often dark character alternated between playing protective uncle to nephew Nikolas Cassadine and tender would-be lover of Laura Spencer, and his obsessive vendetta against Luke Spencer, whom he blamed for the death of his brother Stavros Cassadine and for his own loss of Laura.
Stefan first came to Port Charles in 1996 with his teenage nephew Nikolas Cassadine, the secret son of Laura Spencer and Stefan's older brother Stavros. The Cassadines are descended from a titled, aristocratic Russian family who fled to Greece following the 1917 Russian Revolution. Stefan had raised Nikolas since infancy after Laura had escaped the captivity of Stavros and been forced to leave Nikolas behind, after Helena murdered Laura's mother when she tried to contact him.
Stefan battled his mother Helena Cassadine for control of Nikolas and control of the family company and was official head of the family by the time Nikolas was seven. His mother, emotionally abusive to him during his childhood, viewed him as weak and soft, which he was only in comparison to the more homicidal members of the Cassadine family. Helena strongly favored his older brother Stavros and alternately ignored and belittled the more sensitive Stefan. Stefan loved and protected Alexis Davis, who was raised as his first cousin but later turned out to be his half-sister, both children of Mikkos. He paid for her to attend boarding school in the United States as a teenager and encouraged her to go into the legal profession. However, he also dominated her and expected complete loyalty and obedience from her. Alexis was charged with doing much of the legwork for "Timoria", Stefan's planned vendetta against the Spencer family and General Hospital, both of which Stefan blamed for the presumed death of his brother Stavros. In their first years on the show, fans detected romantic chemistry in Stefan's scenes with Alexis. Stefan expressed disapproval of Alexis's relationship with Ned Ashton and she later went to great lengths to break up his engagement to Katherine Bell, whom she disapproved of. Fans of the romantic pairing called themselves the "Gutter Rats", though no actual romantic relationship was ever alluded to in their scenes together.
Laura Spencer contacted Stefan after her baby daughter Lulu Spencer was diagnosed with aplastic anemia and was in need of a bone marrow transplant from a matched donor. Nikolas turned out to be a match. True to the love-hate relationship Stefan always had with Laura, Stefan forced Laura to beg for her daughter's life. He then allowed Nikolas to donate the life-saving bone marrow to his sister. At the same time, Stefan launched his Timoria plot, to exact revenge on Luke and Laura for (presumably) killing his brother, Stavros, while he was attempted to rape Laura Spencer fifteen years prior. Stefan later married Luke's sister Bobbie Spencer as part of his revenge plot against the Spencers. The marriage ended in divorce after Stefan caught Bobbie investigating his actions against the Spencers.
In the intervening years, Stefan had an affair with and later became engaged to Katherine Bell. This relationship was derailed for a time after his "cousin" Alexis produced proof that Katherine was Stefan's half-sister Natasha. This was eventually exposed as a falsehood, when it turned out that Alexis was the real Natasha. This revelation rocked Stefan and he reacted as a true Cassadine. Stefan banished Alexis, but eventually forgave her. Katherine fell off a parapet during her engagement party to Stefan, the victim of a failed attempt to murder Helena by Luke and Alexis. Katherine was rescued by Helena Cassadine and restored to health, but died in a second fall from the parapet (this time assisted by Helena) soon after her return.
Meanwhile, Laura was harboring a secret about Nikolas, which strained her relationship with her husband and family. Eventually, Luke discovered that she had slept with Stefan and believed that Stefan, not Stavros, was Nikolas' father, and had lied to him about it. Meanwhile, Stefan had to face Nikolas about the secret that Stefan, too, had kept. Nikolas lashed out at Stefan, moving out and depending heavily on his brother, Lucky Spencer, and his friend, Emily Quartermaine, for support. Stefan did not approve of Nikolas's choices for companions, feeling that they were below his stature as a Cassadine. In particular, Stefan felt that Nikolas should always be wary of Spencers, and not trust them as he had come to trust Lucky. Eventually the two reconciled. Nikolas had always loved Stefan like a father, after all.
DNA testing later proved that Stavros was actually Nikolas's father, much to Stefan's bitter disappointment. The damage was already done to Luke and Laura, however, and they divorced. Shortly before Luke and Laura divorced, Stefan and Laura began a relationship, and Stefan felt hopeful that he could regain his relationship with Laura, the woman he had so loved and hated over the years. Unfortunately, their relationship ended bitterly, after Stefan learned that Laura's presumed dead son, Lucky, was alive, and temporarily withheld the information from her. Laura eventually learned about this from Luke, and violently confronted Stefan. Laura could not forgive him for the lie, and Stefan finally accepted that he and Laura had no future.
Stefan later fell in love with Quartermaine cousin Chloe Morgan and was framed for her murder when his back-from-the-dead brother, Stavros, killed her. The plot was eventually revealed and Stefan was cleared.
He appeared more aggressive and continually more deranged and desperate in his final year on the show. Stefan returned to the show after an absence. He had plotted an arranged marriage for Nikolas with Lydia Karenin, a wealthy Russian heiress, to restore the Cassadine family's wealth. He ordered Nikolas to marry Lydia, but Nikolas was reluctant to follow through. Stefan attempted to kill Nikolas's real love, Emily Bowen-Quartermaine, but pushed Lucky's girlfriend Summer (a Laura look-alike), off the cliff by mistake. His secret was well hidden, though, he thought. Stefan's loan from Lorenzo Alcazar was due (this loan transpired as Stefan re-entered the show); Stefan and Lorenzo's henchmen fought quite a bit with him in his final weeks. At this time as well, Luke Spencer kidnapped and put Stefan on "trial" in front of the entire Port Charles television audience, taped by Dillon Quartermaine. Luke intended for Stefan to admit to the attempted murder of Emily Bowen-Quartermaine and actual murder of Summer Holloway. Stefan apparently died after he was burned (and disfigured) and later stabbed in a knife fight with Luke Spencer.
Luke was arrested for Stefan's murder but was released when Stefan's suicide note was found, where Stefan admitted that he had set Luke up for his staged "murder."

It was announced in June 2008 that Sabato would reprise the role for the second season of General Hospital: Night Shift.
John Cates was separated from his siblings Michael and Gina after they were orphaned as children. John assumed the edgier name of Jagger, and fell in with a rough crowd. But Jagger's heart was still good—all it took to bring that out of him was some tender loving care from young Karen Wexler. In 1992, thugs broke into Kelly's Diner and roughed up owner Ruby Anderson and attempted to rob the place. One of them, a homeless hooligan named Jagger Cates, was shot trying to protect Ruby. Ruby not only forgave him, she gave him a job and a place to live.
Wealthy teen Jason Quartermaine started working on Dr. Tom Hardy's new volunteer "Teen Hot Line." Along with freshman Robin Scorpio and fellow junior Karen Wexler, Jason had a place on the crisis line to help teens in trouble. Karen and Jason grew close, but before long Karen got involved with Jagger Cates, a drop-out with a sweet disposition.
After a storm, Jason, Jagger and Karen were stranded on an island. On the island, they encountered Cal Atkins and his convict brother, Joseph Atkins, who had broken out of jail. Cal dragged Karen to the top of a cliff and tried to rape her. Jagger saved her. Jason got there in time to see Cal plummet to the shore below! Convinced that Cal was dead, the teens made a pact to keep what had happened a secret. Cal was actually alive and well with his brother. Back home, a shoot-out occurred. Jagger suffered a minor wound. Cal was arrested. Atkins escaped and sought out Bobbie, who had befriended him in letters to his jail cell. The escaped convict took her hostage and tried to rape her. Atkins was caught when he tried to escape in a police helicopter flown by Mac Scorpio.
Teenager Brenda Barrett turned up on her big sister Julia's doorstep. Julia persuaded Brenda to move in with her and enroll in Port Charles High. Jagger Cates also enrolled at PC High. Brenda was instantly attracted to him. She could tell he liked Karen, who Brenda instantly disliked. Neither Jagger nor Brenda liked school. But Jagger liked Brenda's style and they fell into each others' arms and made love.
For good reason, Brenda Barrett was insecure about her relationship with Jagger Cates. Jagger and Karen had fallen in love. Karen began having disturbing flashbacks. An old boyfriend of Karen's mother, Rhonda, came to stay with her and Karen. Soon after seeing her mother's old boyfriend Ray Conway, long repressed memories flooded back to Karen because he had abused her when she was a child!
Jagger located his sister, Gina, and hired Felicia Jones and Mac Scorpio to find his 16-year-old brother. At a wild party, someone slipped "ecstasy" into Karen's drink. A kid named Stone came to her aid. He turned out to be Jagger's brother, Mike. Karen felt unworthy of Jagger, who had started to box with Marco Dane as his manager. She broke up with Jagger who was comforted by Brenda Barrett.
A troubled Karen went to work as a stripper at the Paradise Lounge, run by Sonny Corinthos. Stone lived in Sonny's apartment above the club. Soon, Karen was addicted to stripping, Sonny, and pills! Karen kept her new life a secret while she worked at Kelly's and the hospital and went to class at Port Charles University. Jagger and "Stone" were reunited.
After Jagger and Stone argued over Stone's going back to school, Jagger followed Stone to the Paradise Lounge. He saw Karen stripping! Later, a stunned Jagger found Karen in bed with Sonny and beat Sonny up. Sonny put a hit out on Jagger. Marco promised Sonny a piece of Jagger's boxing action in exchange for Jagger's life. Sonny liked the idea of "owning" Jagger and agreed.
Slipping into the strip joint, Brenda's eyes popped when she saw a drugged-out Karen taking her clothes off. Brenda saw it all, and told everyone. Karen's friends and family rallied around her during her recovery. In his next fight, Jagger refused to follow Sonny's orders to take a dive. Jagger and Karen ran away and finally made love.
By 1994, Stone and Jagger finally rekindled the warm relationship they'd had as kids. Jagger stopped boxing and decided to become a cop. He and Karen, who had received a scholarship to study medicine at Northwestern University, got engaged.
Before Jagger and Karen's wedding day, a suicidal patient at the hospital almost plunged out a window with Karen! A new orderly, Miguel Morez, saved them both. Miguel saw how Jagger felt about Karen and had a pang. He had once been in love like that with a girl named Lily.
Jagger stopped his brother Stone from driving the getaway van that would carry Frank Smith out of jail. Tragedy struck when the bike Jagger was riding crashed and he was knocked out! Jagger recuperated from his motorcycle spill in time to marry Karen in a touching wedding ceremony. It was a day filled with love—and surprises. Karen's mother revealed to Karen that Scott Baldwin was her father. Karen, overjoyed by the news, happily hopped on the back of her new husband's motorcycle and sped off to a new life in San Francisco, where Karen would attend medical school to become a doctor and Jagger would become a police officer.
In 1995, Stone Cates had come down with the flu. As his girlfriend Robin Scorpio nursed him with chicken soup, he convinced her she should go to Yale. Stone assured Robin he'd been tested and was HIV negative. They made love for the first time. Mac was furious when he found out, but he came to realize he had to let Robin grow up. When Stone could not shake the flu, tests revealed the worst possible news. Stone was HIV positive. Stone couldn't bring himself to reveal the deeply tragic news to Robin.
Jagger returned to Port Charles to visit with Stone, luckily getting the chance to spend a little time with his brother before Stone died later that year.
Karen returned to Port Charles in 1997 as a young doctor in General Hospital's intern program, where she discovered she was going to be working closely with Dr. Joe Scanlon. Karen and Joe had been childhood friends in Port Charles. Although Karen was now married to Jagger Cates, a police officer stationed in San Francisco, she was still attracted to Joe. And Joe was attracted to Karen!
Karen's marriage to Jagger was on shaky ground but she wanted to make it work. Although they constantly found themselves in close situations, Karen and Joe resisted their impulses as Karen tried to stay faithful to her husband. Afraid of her feelings for Joe and needing to see Jagger, Karen went to San Francisco. While there, Karen learned that Jagger had been having an affair and that their marriage was truly over. Karen returned to Port Charles and her friendship with Joe grew deeper and the two began dating.
In 2008 Jagger returned to Port Charles with his son Stone, named after his deceased brother. It is revealed that Stone's mother is suing for custody of their son and probably would get him.

Jagger wasn't able to take care of them and they became separated and entered the foster parent rut. Stone met Karen Wexler at a party. Someone slipped something into her drink and Stone helped her. Stone did not know that she was dating his older brother Jagger. Karen felt she wasn't good enough for Jagger so she ended their relationship.
Stone was living with Sonny Corinthos. Sonny was seeing Karen and got her hooked on drugs. Jagger found his little brother at his girlfriend Krystal's grave site and they began to build a relationship. Jagger became a cop and became engaged to Karen. Jagger saved his brother when he was supposed to drive the get away car to break Frank Smith out of prison. Jagger had a motorcycle accident but recovered and married Karen.
Stone started to date Robin Scorpio. The pair fell deeply in love. Mac Scorpio, Robin's uncle, proved to be a big obstacle in their relationship as he did not approve of his niece dating a street kid.
He came down with the flu and Robin took care of him. He told her that he had been tested for HIV and they made love for the first time. They used protection at first, but eventually they stopped; this was a decision that would change Robin's life forever. Stone had the flu for a while and decided to get tested for HIV again. The test came back positive. He did not know how to tell Robin.
Stone was shot and his blood got on Robin. He ran away from her. She found him in the same motel where they made love. Stone told Robin that he was HIV positive. Dr. Alan Quartermaine ordered that they both be tested. Stone's test revealed that he now had AIDS. Robin's test came back negative. Alan started Stone on drug therapy. Mac Scorpio, Robin's uncle was furious when he found out, but he cared for Stone and even saved his life during a seizure, and later bonded with the kid. Robin later tested positive for HIV.
Towards the end of his life, Stone was cared for by Robin and Sonny Corinthos at Sonny's penthouse. Stone's eyesight started to fail due to CMV retinitis worsened by his illness. Right before he died he was able to focus on Robin and see her for one last time. His last word were, "I see you...Oh, Robin, I see you." Stone was like a brother to Sonny and Sonny took his death very hard. Brenda Barrett took his death hard as well, and the two comforted each other. Sonny, Brenda, and Robin had Stone cremated and threw his ashes over a bridge where he had gone bungee jumping to fulfill one of the wishes on his "wish list", which he made once he knew he would not live many more months. That same year Sonny lost his pregnant wife, Lily. He donated her inheritance to General Hospital to open the Stone Cates Memorial AIDS Wing. Sonny later named his son Morgan Stone Corinthos, after Jason Morgan and Stone.
Stone's name comes up regularly on the show, unlike most soap opera characters who are quickly forgotten after being killed off. The annual Nurses Ball, ceased in 2001 for some unexplained reason, was always dedicated to Stone and featured his NAMES Project AIDS Memorial quilt, a robin on a bridge (to commemorate not only his life, but the love he shared with Robin Scorpio) created by Mac Scorpio, at the entrance. Robin tells many characters how she contracted HIV from Stone, and even did this when she discovered her mother Anna Devane was alive on All My Children in 2001. Sometimes, Stone, or a great coincidence, messes with the lights after blackouts whenever Stone's name is mentioned, leaving Sonny and Robin to often wonder if Stone's spirit checks in on them from time to time.
In 2008, Jagger returns to Port Charles in General Hospital: Night Shift. He visits Robin and later introduces her to his son, Stone, who later is determined to be autistic.
Stone returns as part of a vision to his former girlfriend Robin Scorpio from September 28, 2010 when Robin, kidnapped and held captive by Dr. Lisa Niles in an underground hole and urges her to have a positive attitude that she'll be rescued.

Edward "Ned" Lawrence Quartermaine Ashton is a fictional character on the ABC soap opera, General Hospital. He was portrayed by Kurt McKinney from 1988 to August 30, 1991, and Wally Kurth from September 9, 1991 until November 2007.
Ned is the son of Tracy Quartermaine and Larry Ashton, a British aristocrat.

Ned has had a number of relationships over the years. He was first introduced as having an affair with Dr. Monica Quartermaine, the wife of his uncle Alan. She didn't recognize him because he had been sent to boarding school as a child and she didn't see him again until he was an adult. He later married and annulled Monica's daughter Dawn Winthrop, divorced Spencer cousin Jenny Eckert, and band manager and recording company executive Lois Cerullo, the mother of his daughter Brook Lynn Ashton. He was also briefly married to Katherine Bell because she was blackmailing the family. The marriage was invalid, because at the same time, he was married to Lois as Eddie Maine. He had a long affair with Alexis Davis, but she left him at the altar on their wedding day.
He had a platonic marriage to Chloe Morgan, who was a distant cousin of his grandmother Lila, and later was engaged to Alexis's long-lost sister Kristina Cassadine, whose death he and Alexis blamed on Sonny Corinthos. Most recently, Ned had a relationship with Skye Chandler. For a time he pretended to be the father of Alexis's daughter, Kristina Corinthos-Davis and had custody of the little girl when Alexis was on trial for murdering Luis Alcazar and was later sentenced to probation. Alexis didn't want the Quartermaines to be involved in the girl's life, and he later decided to give up contact with her. Ned has been a back burner character in recent years, living quietly in Los Angeles and Brooklyn at once.
He returned in November 2007 to attend Emily's funeral.
In May 2010, it was mentioned that Ned is currently in Europe maintaining several bands with Lois. In July 1 2011, it was mentioned that Ned and Lois were together again and living in Paris while maintaining four other bands.
Mikkos Cassadine was a Greco-Russian aristocrat. The Cassadine family are descendants of the Russian aristocracy, with connections to the royal Romanov family. They existed for hundreds of years in Russia until the Bolshevik Revolution forced them to flee to Greece. After that period they built a large economic empire of power and wealth.
Mikkos and wife Helena Cassadine had two children, Stefan and Stavros. He also had an affair with Kristin Bergman, an opera singer, and had two daughters, Natasha (Alexis Davis) and Kristina. Kristin Bergman was murdered in front of her daughter Alexis by a jealous Helena. In 2009, Helena revealed that Mikkos had another illegitimate son named Valentin, who was disowned.
In 1981, Mikkos made his only on screen appearances on General Hospital when he was the mastermind behind a plot to attain world domination by holding the world to ransom through the use of a weather machine that could create severe snowstorms. He was eventually killed by Luke Spencer when Luke foiled his plans.
Nevertheless, the spectre of Mikkos still features prominently in storylines of General Hospital as his widow Helena, daughter Alexis, grandchildren Sam McCall, Nikolas Cassadine, Kristina Davis and Molly Lansing and great-grandchild Spencer Cassadine are still a part of the show.

In 1983, Stavros was originally introduced as the cousin of the late Mikkos Cassadine, who tried to freeze the world with a weather machine, but in 1996 his history was retconned so that he was the firstborn son of Mikkos and his evil wife Helena Cassadine. He abducted Laura Spencer, told her Luke Spencer was dead and persuaded her to marry him. He fathered her son Nikolas Cassadine. When Laura learned that Luke was alive, she returned to Port Charles, intending to just look at him from afar and then return to Greece. Obsessed with Laura (whom he called Lasha), Stavros followed her and was believed to have died at General Hospital shortly after falling down a flight of stairs while attempting to shoot Luke and "reclaim" his wife. However, in 2001 it was revealed that his mother Helena Cassadine had arranged to have him placed in cryonic suspension in a secret room underneath General Hospital. Stavros was revived and came back for another round of murder (Chloe Morgan, who had discovered he was not "Lucien Cane" as he'd been claiming) and mayhem before he was again presumed killed in another fight with Luke---falling into a deep shaft, laughing all the way down. After his apparent death, Stavros continued to "appear" to his son Nikolas in 2002 and in a Christmas Carol-like dream of Luke Spencer in 2003.
