Casey Braxton, is a fictional character from the Australian Channel Seven soap opera Home and Away, played by Lincoln Younes. Casey made his first on-screen appearance on 17 February 2011.
Casey is introduced in Summer Bay with his brothers as the Braxton clan, as their gang, the River Boys, are extending their turf beyond Mangrove River. A friendship ignites between Romeo Smith (Luke Mitchell) and Casey, who becomes concerned about Casey's attitude situation. When Romeo goes to Casey's house, as he needs assistance with his school work, he realises that Casey has a bad home life. His mother Cheryl Braxton (Suzi Dougherty) shows miniature interest in him and his older brothers Heath and Brax continuously puts him down. Ruby Buckton(Rebecca Breeds), who is attempting to move on from ex Romeo, is on the rebound and has a one-night-stand with Casey, who furiously attacks Romeo when he discovers that he treated her poorly. Casey and Ruby's attraction leads to a romantic relationship, but the relationship is put into question when they have to overcome disapproval from Ruby's police sergeant mother, Charlie (Esther Anderson), who cannot accept the fact he is a River Boy.
Casey struggles with his school work and Miles Copeland (Josh Quong Tart) suspects that he may be dyslexic. Cheryl is enraged by the school's recommendation that he gets tested. Miles decides to mentor Casey to help him through the HSC. Casey feels pressurised by Cheryl to leave school, especially when she gets him a job at the fishery. Casey quits school, angering Brax, who feels Casey is throwing his bright future away. Brax endeavours to persuade Casey to return to school. When he does, Cheryl throws him out of the house and Brax hires a motel room for him to live in. Brax realises that the set-up is not practical, so he convinces Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) to let him live at her flat with Romeo and Indigo Walker (Samara Weaving).
Casey lets Tegan Callahan (Saskia Burmeister) hide money belonging to Jake Pirovic at his place. Jake kidnaps Casey and Ruby and when Brax turns up to rescue them, he is stabbed. Jake is arrested and sent to jail and his brother Hammer (Benedict Samuel) sets out to gain revenge on the Braxtons. Casey brings a knife into school in order to protect himself, just in case, he is attacked and Miles sees it. Gina Austin Gina (Sonia Todd) then excludes Casey. She later gives him a second chance so he can concentrate on the HSC. Shortly after, Casey ends his relationship when he becomes annoyed by Ruby's constant nagging about the HSC. Casey is frustrated at being unable to help his older brothers in the fight with Hammer's gang. Casey decides against attending Tegan's funeral and he goes to Jake's place and sets it on fire. As everyone is at Tegan's funeral, no one is injured and the fire is put out. Brax learns Casey started the fire and while angry, he helps him cover his tracks. Georgina Watson (Jaclyn Albergoni) suspects Casey is behind the arson attack and questions him over the incident. The police later find CCTV evidence placing him in the area minutes before and after the fire. Heath tries to convince Casey to run away, but he hands himself in. Casey continues to push Ruby away to protect her. When he assumes she is seducing Xavier Austin (David Jones-Roberts), Casey opts to reunite with Ruby and she agrees to wait for him. On the day of Casey's court case, Magistrate Hanson (Rhett Walton) decides to make an example of Casey and sends him to jail for thirty days. Casey is later given early release and surprises Ruby by accompanying him to the school formal. He then comforts Ruby and Brax after Charlie is murdered by Jake.
Heath's ex-girlfriend, Henrietta Brown (Emma Leonard), begins teaching at the high school and she becomes Casey's tutor. Casey develops a crush on her and they share a kiss. Casey and Henri begin a secret affair, but Heath finds out and publicly outs the affair to Gina. Henri decides to dump Casey, leaving him and the Bay. Sasha Bezmel (Demi Harman) supports Casey when he is bullied by a teacher and she later confesses her feelings for him, but Casey reveals he does not reciprocate. Casey meets his father, Danny (Andy McPhee), and decides to forge a relationship with him. However, he later admits to Brax that he is spending time with Danny, so he can stop him from targeting Ruby and her money. Danny involved Casey in his plan to rob a local pub. When Danny tells Casey to shoot the owner, he decides to shoot Danny instead and he dies. Casey struggles to cope with what he has done and he later goes out to the forest with Sasha, where he sleeps with her. With Sasha getting her hopes up, he calls their night an accident, upsetting Sasha. Casey is kidnapped by his half-brother, Kyle Braxton (Nic Westaway).
