Ned also maintains a longtime rivalry with his cousin AJ Quartermaine over the years.
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.

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, his alter ego and stage name he used for his music career.

In the summer of 2006, it was rumored that the show was considering recasting the role with Daytime legend, Joseph Mascolo; however Mascolo returned to his famous role as Stefano DiMera on NBC's Days of Our Lives.
Mikkos Cassadine according to some critics was "The Face of Evil" hell bent on world domination; very similar to many comic book super villains in pop culture. The Cassadines were introduced and create by General Hospital then executive producer, Gloria Monty. Over the years, Mikkos has been painted as a vicious tyrant, who was very controlling of all of his children. Mikkos's personality is very similar to that of his widow's Helena Cassadine (previously, Elizabeth Taylor, currently Constance Towers).
In August 1981, Mikkos Cassadine appears on his private island in Greece with several of his business associates, including his brothers, Victor and Tony. Mikkos presents his plan to use the world's largest uncut diamond, the Ice Princess to power his weather machine and force the entire world to bend to his will, and allow him to rebuild the world in his own pure, perfect image. The first step of Mikkos's plan is to freeze the world, starting with Port Charles, New York; the hometown of Luke and Laura Spencer. By freezing Port Charles, Mikkos could bring the world to its knees and force its leaders to do his bidding. Mikkos refuses to negotiate with the World Security Bureau (WSB) and lowers the temperature in Port Charles so low that it is declared as disaster area. However, the machine malfunctions killing Tony and Alexandria Quartermaine along with others, however Mikkos remains. Luke, Laura and WSB agent, Robert Scorpio break into the Cassadine compound, to stop Mikkos; during a struggle with Luke, Mikkos is frozen to death after falling into his own ice chamber. Luke is able to shut down the machine and Port Charles is safe; Victor is sent to prison. However, Mikkos's murder at the hands of the Spencer clan would affect the show for years to come.
The feud between the Cassadine and Spencer families start after Mikkos's death; his widow Helena decides to take revenge on Luke and Laura. For years, she tortures them all because of her plans to avenge the murder of Mikkos.
Mikkos and Helena's controlling ways are often mentioned as the reason for the family being so screwed up. Their oldest son, Stavros in 1983, kidnaps Laura Spencer, forces her into marriage and to bear his son, Nikolas. Their other son, the gentler Stefan, is looked down upon for not being more like his brother, and parents. Stefan also has a thing for Laura, but he is killed by Luke in 2003. In the 1990s, it is revealed that Mikkos had an affair with the Swedish opera singer, Kristin Bergman who bore him two children, Natasha and Kristina Cassadine. When Helena finds out about the affair, she kills Kristen forcing Mikkos to send his daughters into hiding. The infant Kristina is put up for adoption, while Natasha's name is changed to Alexis and Mikkos lies, claiming she is the daughter of his late sister, Sophia, and raises her in Greece with his sons. In 2009, Helena reveals that Mikkos had another bastard child, the evil Valentin who had been disowned by Mikkos years earlier. Valentin is initially meant to cause more trouble for the Spencers and even the Cassadines, however the storyline is dropped. Mikkos and Helena are also believed to have another child, Irina Cassadine, who is shot to death by Helena in early 2012. Though Helena claims Irina as her daughter, it was never stated that she was fathered by Mikkos.
Mikkos's tyrannical spirit also affects his grandchildren, most significantly his granddaughter, Sam McCall. When a 16 years Alexis gets pregnant at boarding school, Mikkos forces Alexis into giving Sam up for adoption. Mikkos then forges a death certificate to make sure Alexis can never find her daughter.
In 2016, Valentin Cassadine finally makes contact with his family, killing off his nephew Nikolas and claiming the Cassadine fortune for himself. Valentin reveals that he was shipped off to boarding school in Bedlington, England when was around 5 or 6 years old and never returned home.
Victor Cassadine is a fictional character from the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital. The role was originated by Thaao Penghlis in the 1981 Ice Princess storyline. On January 31, 2014, Penghlis reprised the role on and off until September 16, 2014.
Victor first appears as a minor character in August 1981 along with his brother Mikkos and Tony. Victor has a short affair with Tiffany Hill while his brother Mikkos plans to use the world's largest uncut diamond, the Ice Princess to power his weather machine and force the entire world to bend to his will, and allow him to rebuild the world in his own pure, perfect image. While Tony and Mikkos get killed in the process, Victor is imprisoned for his part in Mikkos' scheme. It has later been suggested that Victor died in prison.
In January 2014, Victor returns to Port Charles. He is now the director of the WSB and as such was involved in freeing Liesl Obrecht and getting her the job as chief-of-staff of General Hospital after meeting Sonny Corinthos from her cell. Victor visits the recently returned Robin Scorpio, who has been kept away for almost two years, and announces that he has big plans for her. Victor wants Robin to help him to bring back his sister-in-law Helena Cassadine - who has been shot by Luke Spencer - and his nephew Stavros - who has been frozen by Laura Spencer. Victor showed Robin proof that her friend Jason Morgan was alive and she agreed to help him. While in Port Charles, Victor acquainted himself with great-nephew Nikolas Cassadine and his son Spencer, before departing for the Crichton-Clark facility in Scarsdale with Robin and later encounters Heather Webber. In May, Victor made a brief appearance to deliver a message from Robin to her husband, Patrick Drake, as well as deliver stolen embryos to Lulu Spencer and Dante Falconeri, at the request of former love interest, Liesl Obrecht.
In August 2014, it is discovered that Victor had threatened a troubled Rafe Kovich, Jr. into causing an accident involving Patrick, his daughter Emma, and ex-fiancee Sabrina Santiago that had resulted in the death of Patrick and Sabrina's son, Gabriel, who had been born premature as a result. Meanwhile, Robin has been successful in fulfilling Victor's plans to resurrect his dead relatives, as well as Jason, who Victor intends to use for his own purposes based on Jason's past as mafia hitman. Victor is discovered to be the employer of Peter Harrell, Jr., who had been conning Maxie Jones for months in an effort to obtain her mother, Felicia's, Aztec jewels. After Peter kidnaps Maxie and Lulu to a secluded cabin, they are nearly rescued by Dante and Nathan West (Liesl's son) before Victor gasses the place, and abducts all four of them to the Crichton-Clark facility. While at the facility, Lulu and Dante are left to face a recently resurrected Stavros, and Maxie comes face to face with Peter Harrell, Sr., seeking revenge for an incident with her parents years ago. Meanwhile, Victor develops suspicions about Nathan's paternity and orders a DNA test on the young detective to confirm whether he is his son. Back in Port Charles, Liesl deduces that her son and his friends are being held at the Crichton-Clark facility, and aids police commissioner Anna Devane in a raid. Liesl confronts Victor, telling him that Nathan is in fact his son, but when the test results prove otherwise, Liesl shoots and kills Victor. As a result, a detonation sequence is triggered to protect sensitive material, and Liesl, Anna, Nathan, Maxie, Dante, and Lulu all escape the facility (along with Robin, Jason, and a resurrected Helena who escaped through other means).
Stavros Nikolai Mikkosovich Cassadine is a fictional character from the ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital.

Eighteen years later, the role was recast with Robert Kelker-Kelly, who portrayed the role from June 1 to November 9, 2001, at which time the character was believed to have died. Kelker-Kelly subsequently reprised the role for several episodes, as a hallucination, between February 14, 2002, and December 24, 2003. On April 10, 2013, Kelker-Kelly reprised the role amidst intense secrecy on the part of the series.
Stavros Cassadine was first introduced to the series in November 1983, as he attempted to reclaim his "wife" Laura Spencer from her long-time love Luke Spencer. Over a year earlier, Stavros had arranged for Laura's abduction, having become completely obsessed with her. After telling Laura that Luke had died, Stavros took Laura to an island, where he married and raped her, the latter event resulting in the conception of their son, Nikolas. Jealous over her son's obsession with Laura, Stavros' mother, Helena helped Laura escape from his captivity. Stavros, however, managed to track Laura down, and following an encounter with Luke, fell down a flight of stairs, broke his neck, and died.
In June 2001, Stavros was revealed to have been cryogenically frozen by Helena, until medical science could revive her son. After recovering from his injury, Stavros quickly began wreaking havoc upon the citizens of Port Charles, namely Laura and his own brother, Stefan. Under the alias of businessman Lucien Cane, Stavros began to build a relationship with Chloe Morgan, seeking to undermine her relationship with his brother. When Chloe discovered Stavros' true identity, he murdered her and framed Stefan for the crime. Stavros also began manipulating Gia Campbell, in an effort to obtain information on Nikolas, and deduce whether or not Nikolas would remain loyal to the Cassadines.
Eventually, Laura and Stefan were able to conclude the Stavros was alive, prompting Stefan to break out of prison. After confronting Stavros on Spoon Island, Stefan tied him up and left him inside an empty coffin. However, when the police came looking for Stefan, they freed Stavros, and following some questions, let him go. When the time came for Stavros and Nikolas to come face to face, Helena arranged for Nikolas to believe that Stavros was still frozen, prompting Nikolas to declare that he hated his father and hoped he remained "dead". Subsequently, Helena lured a handful of her enemies to the underground laboratory where she had kept Stavros hidden, and trapped them inside. Stavros, in an effort to prove his love for Nikolas, gave him the necessary information to escape the laboratory, with Gia in tow. Following a vicious altercation with Luke, Stavros found himself dangling over the entrance to a bottomless pit, and in one final effort to thumb his nose at Luke, threw up his hands and fell to his presumed death.
In April 2013, Stavros was revealed to be alive, after Helena had saved him from the bottom of the pit twelve years earlier. With Stavros on the brink of death, Helena whisked him away to Cassadine Island in Greece, where he had been recovering ever since. Stavros is eventually discovered to be alive by Nikolas sometime in December 2012, and in an effort to discover what his father and grandmother are up to, attempts to endear himself to them. On April 12, Luke and Laura rescue Lulu from Stavros and trap him in his own cryogenic chamber. He is presumed dead.
Following the intervention of his uncle, Victor Cassadine, Stavros is resurrected in September 2014, due largely in part to research performed by Robin Scorpio. After Victor arranges for Lulu, Dante, Maxie Jones and Nathan West to be captured, Stavros reappears with the intention of impregnating Lulu with an embryo he had harvested from her the year prior. Stavros' efforts fail, and he is shot to death by Dante. Despite this, a resurrected Helena gets her hands on the embryo, and flees the Crichton-Clark just as it explodes.

When Alan miraculously came back from the dead and Sean moved on from Monica and began a relationship with Tiffany. Tiffany began working for the television station WLPC as an executive and gave Colton Shore his own show called The Colton Connection.
In 1988, Sean and Tiffany finally married in the Quartermaine mansion. During the wedding ceremony, Tiffany's real name came out: Elsie Mae Crumholz. Sometime after the wedding, the Cartel began working in Port Charles, and they poisoned Tiffany in order to blackmail Sean into giving them information on Robert's investigation into the Cartel. The Cartel's evil plans eventually fell apart and Tony Jones was able to cure Tiffany's illness. When Tiffany's sister Cheryl Stansbury died in a car accident, Sean and Tiffany went to Phoenix to get Cheryl's baby son Lucas. Lucas had been adopted by Bobbie, after Cheryl was told that her baby died. When Bobbie discovered that Lucas was actually Cheryl's son and the baby hadn't died, she kept quiet about it, so that she could keep him. Cheryl eventually found out the truth and got Lucas back, however Cheryl left Lucas to Bobbie and Tony in her will, under the assumption that Tiffany didn't want children. This infuriated Tiffany and she took Bobbie to court to gain custody of Lucas.
The custody battle for Lucas wreaked havoc on Sean and Tiffany's marriage. Tiffany tried to fight dirty by telling the social worker about Bobbie's past as a prostitute, but Sean refused to testify if Tiffany brought it up at the custody hearing. Despite Sean's protestations, Tiffany's lawyers used to ammo, but Tiffany lost the case anyway and Lucas was given to Bobbie and Tony. Sean and Tiffany grew further apart and the distance between them only widened when Sean began having an affair with lawyer Jessica Holmes. When Tiffany discovered that she was pregnant with Sean's child, Sean decided to fight for her and get her back. Jessica tried to stop him by claiming to be pregnant as well, but Sean returned to Tiffany anyway. Things took a turn for the worse when Tiffany found out that Sean might have gotten Jessica pregnant as well. She went into premature labor and her baby died. Devastated, Tiffany nearly committed suicide but Bobbie and Tony arrived in time to stop her. Jessica later retracted her pregnancy claim even though she found out later on that she actually was pregnant with Sean's child. When Jessica was murdered, Sean confessed to protect Tiffany because he thought she had killed Jessica. Felicia Jones and Mac Scorpio came to the rescue with proof that psycho Ryan Chamberlain was the murderer. In the clear, Sean and Tiffany were now able to begin to repair their broken relationship.
When Luke shot Sean and badly wounded him during a shootout with mobster Frank Smith, General Hospital recommended that they transfer him to another treatment facility in Boston, Massachusetts. Tiffany discovered she was pregnant again just before the pair left town in 1995. It is later revealed that they had a daughter and named her Anna after their good friend Anna.
