Notable Traits


The woman spending way too much of her time hiding in the back rooms of the funeral home is very pretty. Too pretty to be spending all of her time around dead bodies, but there she is. Her skin is extremely pale, like she never goes outside. But the rest of her is extremely dark. Her long black hair reaches down her back, curling and waving and occasionally gets into her face. Her eyes are dark, almost a purplish black that sparkles when the light hits them the right way, and are always rimmed with smokey eyeshadow. Her lips are almost as pale as her skin. She almost always wears dark clothing, usually black jeans or leggings, a loose black or blue top, black fingerless gloves, and heavy black combat boots.


Behind the mask, the woman's dark features seem to draw on the shadows and darkness around her, serving to make her even more striking and beautiful. Her long hair is the color of shadows at night, the deepest shade of black with the slightest hint of purple. Her eyes look like the night sky on a moonless night: deep, dark, endless, and with a sparkle hidden under the initial darkness. She doesn't have a mouth. It doesn't affect how she can talk, but she doesn't have one.


At first her mantle seems very empty, strikingly so. She gives off a chill, but whether that's her personality or the mantle could be debatable. When you get closer to her, there is the burn of frostbite. Occasionally, there will be the slight smell like it's about to snow. During the winter months, the winter crown is manifested on her head, but it looks like it isn't properly on her head, like she doesn't care about making sure it's straight.


Cordelia doesn't entirely get things. Most of the time she understands what you mean, but sarcasm, innuendos, occasional metaphors are met with a blank stare. Generally, Cordelia isn't big on emotions. Just shrugs them off and doesn't notice. When it comes to hiding, be it hiding herself, her emotions, other people, her alcohol, her skills can't be beat. That is... as long as she wants things to be hidden. She curses constantly, and will call you a dumbass if you are acting like one. You never see her in a fight.

  • "I once read a short story about a utopia with peace and love and harmony. It wasn’t a happy story though, in this story, there was a child who was kept in the cellar of a building. This child never had and never would know love or kindness, this child was mistreated and abused and neglected. Everyone in this story knew about this child, it was important that they know about it, because that’s how they believed they had achieved peace. All the misery and sorrow of the world was confined to one person. Cordelia always reminds me of that story." Elise Fairview
