Spencer Stefan Nikolosovich Cassadine was born on February 20, 2006 to Nikolas Cassadine and Courtney Matthews (although he was originally believed to be the son of Jasper "Jax" Jacks). On Courtney's deathbed, Jax told her that Nikolas was the baby's biological father. Jax kept the secret, and raised the baby as his own. Naming the baby John Jacks (in honor of his late father), Jax soon discovered that Carly Corinthos learned the truth. She agreed to keep Jax's secret, offering to help raise baby John. Robin Scorpio also learned the child's true paternity; during the baby's christening ceremony, she revealed the truth to Nikolas. Returned to his father, baby John's name was changed to Spencer Cassadine to demonstrate the conclusion of the Cassadine/Spencer feud, admitting his ties to that family via half-siblings Lucky and Lulu and stepfather Luke.

The child's great-grandmother, Helena, hired Colleen McHenry as the baby's nanny. Colleen soon developed an unrequited crush on Nikolas, growing desperate for the two of them and Spencer to become a family. In a disguise, Colleen kidnapped Spencer from a manger on Christmas Eve and changed his name. Nikolas and Emily Quartermaine went to Moscow and found Helena christening him with a traditional Cassadine name. Helena held a knife to Spencer, but Emily punched her and took the baby. Helena escaped while they waited for the authorities. Spencer returned to town with Nikolas and Emily, where a party was thrown for him.

When Nikolas began hanging out with Nadine Crowell, a SORASed Spencer introduced Nadine to their horses and helped when Nadine and Nikolas put together his train set. Spencer was rarely seen, and it was clear that Nikolas was leaving him to be raised by his nanny. Several characters commented that Nikolas appeared to be an absentee parent; since then, Nikolas was more active in his son's life. Spencer was seen in Wyndemere and at the park. When Cameron and Jake (Spencer's adoptive cousins) went to see baby Aiden, Spencer was home with a mild cold; in June 2011 Spencer moved to Zürich, Switzerland with his father. On December 22, 2011, Lulu mentioned that Nikolas is in Greece.

On March 26, 2013, Laura mentioned that Spencer is in Italy with his great-grandmother, Lesley.

Famous quotes containing the word spencer:

    Can a woman become a genius of the first class? Nobody can know unless women in general shall have equal opportunity with men in education, in vocational choice, and in social welcome of their best intellectual work for a number of generations.
    —Anna Garlin Spencer (1851–1931)
