There are always the initials "JC" but beyond that Casey is a visionary and a rebel. Originally a preacher Casey is not happy with mainstream religion, he no longer feels "the calling". Instead Casey opposes the corrupt authorities in charge, just as Christ opposed the PHARISEES. Casey joins a union and becomes something of a sage with followers that seem more like apostles. Even Tom is convinced that Casey is "on to something" and looks for his meaning.
