Mercenary - Cora Wolf

Post by cornix on 6/4/2017, 11:28

Name: Cora Wolf; nicknamed Valkyrie by her close friends

Age: 16

Group: Rogue

Rank/Profession: Mercenary - Leader of a group called the 'pack'

Appearance:
Cora is normally not a person you would forget, looks wise. She is used to being able to spit on almost everyone’s head (given the usual heights in the attack on titan anime) as she is around 185 cm tall. She does have some muscles, not too many though, which can not be seen if you just take a quick look, and weighs around 65kg.

Even though she is quite tall, her face is not rough. Her lack of extra weight shows in her visible cheekbones and sharp jawline. Her nose is normal. Her lips as well, apart from the natural blood red colour, and even more visible on her almost perfectly white skin.

Cora’s eyes are of a dark grey colour, sometimes seeming greenish or blueish.

Out of safety and comfort reasons she mostly wears her dark blonde hair in a high ponytail, or braided. As most female organisms of the species Homo Sapiens Sapiens she is lacking any form of visible facial hair apart from eyebrows and eyelashes.

Cora’s usual attire consists of a long leather coat, pants and a shirt. All either dark grey or black. Her boots are similar to the boots used in the military with a few additions: steel plated in the tips of the boots, small blade hidden in the sole of her right foot and a small set of lockpicks hidden in the other. In addition to these extras she also carries two throwing knives in each of her boots, multiple other in her leather coat and another pair on the belt on each sides of her hip.

Very rarely she shows up wearing just wearing Sarashi around her breasts instead of her usual shirt.

The reason for this revealing outfit of hers is simply intimidating everyone around her. Or scaring them. Or both. With wearing this outfit all of her scars are visible. The ones on the back, the ones on her stomach, the ones on the legs and the ones on her arms. Cora is covered in them. It shows her history, her experience and her status. Most of them are smaller, the ones on the lower back mostly coming from whips, the ones on her stomach, legs and a few on her arms mostly from training. The others on her arm and some on other parts of her body are mostly from hurting herself in various ways.

The most impressive of these scars are the ones on her back. They include an about one centimeter wide scar drawing from her right shoulder to the left side of her hip, a brand-mark pentacle between her pauldrons and another brand mark of a fox right beneath the first one.

Each of them show her affiliation with various organisations.

Identity:
The first thing you will notice about Cora is her bluntness. If she does not like something about you, she will tell you. If she hides it it mostly is because of other various reasons. With her bluntness comes a nasty habit of stepping on everyone's’ feet. Intentional or not is most of the time not really obvious. It might seem as if she wanted to compliment you, but failed horribly. Apart from that: She is quite quick witted and won’t fail to counter insults of any type.

Cora used to be a very shy and introverted person. The latter she still is. Given her current position in the mercenary business though, she had to force herself into being less shy and seeming more extroverted. Another reason why people might take her as an extroverted and open person is the fact that she tends to talk alot around people. Only in a while you actually do realize that she barely talks about herself. This habit used to be even worse a few years back, where she would hide every piece of personal information about herself.

Another trait people will notice about her is her rationality. She will always try to and at any cost to stay rational. She will set what she wants to reach beforehand and then decide accordingly. Her main goal is her own survival and maintaining, or reaching a high position.

Even though she values survival alot, Cora seems to lack any form of self preservation, as seen in her suicidal 3DMG maneuvers.

A few years back her actual personality was not known to anyone apart from her and a few close people. Or, well, her personalities. Cora suffers from dissociative identity disorder for which the cause was a severe trauma in her childhood. After this getting revealed she got more open with her two other personalities: Vec and Nex. At Least to the outside. She never had a problem talking to them in her head, she always did that. They somewhat worked as companions through lonely times.

Both Vec and Nex share Cora’s and each others’ memories. Cora herself, does not.

Nex is her secondary personality, he barely talks and if he does her voice gets alot deeper and is indistinguishable from her normal voice. He is even more rational than Cora is, she might get influenced by other people and what they might think of her, he does not. He does not show too many facial expressions. His primary use is getting her out of deadly situations with titans or humans.

Vec is basically a homicidal maniac. His or her gender is not really defined, Cora mostly refers to Vec as ‘he’. His voice is higher than Cora’s, but without seeming more female.


Preferences:

-Likes:
Weapons, Cora loves weapons of any kind, the more hurtful the better. Apart from her usual love for bladed weapons like knives, she also came to love crossbows and rifles. She prefers crossbows as they are silent. Depending on the job she has to do, she might choose rifles above crossbows.

Animals. They never really betrayed her, and she is convinced that they can’t either. Should an animal try to hurt or even kill her, she won’t mind. She will forgive it, as it most certainly has a good reason for its behaviour.

Art, in alot of forms. Thus music, drawing, painting, etc.. She herself practices a few forms of art, including drawing (not too good, mostly animals), singing (if noone is present, or if everyone present is either deaf, dead or not a part of the human species), and torturing. Yes. She considers the latter a form of art. It requires a huge level of skill to for example make precise, non lethal, but hurtful cuts. She might also consider other types of skill a form of art if said skill requires alot of precision or knowledge.

Obedience. A good soldier should listen to his superiors and not talk back unless he has serious concerns regarding the accomplishment of the mission, the soldiers possible wounds or death do not count into having ‘serious’ concerns.

Respect. Cora values respect, especially towards herself, alot. Not many things make her day as easy as someone respecting her for her skills or accomplishments. Respect out of fear is happily accepted as well. This is one of the main reasons she values her own position so much.

-Dislikes:
The military. There is nothing Cora despises more than the military as an organisation itself. This does not mean that she won’t like you, just because you are a soldier. If you are a soldier working in the Military Police her respect for you is not as high. Same goes for some individuals working in the Garrison. With working in the Survey Corps though, you show your willingness to accomplish something useful other than gambling or drinking. Another and the main reason why she dislikes the military is the fact that they kicked her out of it.

Obedience without thinking for yourself. Blindly following your higher ups commands is considered ‘dumb’ and ‘useless’. If you can’t even think for yourself before a mission how will you be able to think for yourself while executing the mission?

Emotions. A few are fully alright, but if you get too tangled up in them and can’t think clear anymore it gets useless again. They can work as a motivation, but rationality in all cases is prefered.

-Fears:
While still part of the military her greatest fear was getting kicked out of the military because of Vec and Nex. Or in general both of them to get noticed. She still does not talk about them, but is more free with letting Nex talk. Vec still stays hidden. Now it changed to not being able to hold up other peoples’ expectations, including her own. This does only count for people ‘special’ to her or the general public.

Another fear is not knowing what other people think of her and them thinking something completely else from what she expected them to think. This is only a minor fear.

And doctors. She never liked them because they would always take look at her scars and that might reveal her, it got even worse now since she got out of the military by one of their species.

-Goal(s):
Cora’s goal in life is not really set by now, she used to have one, but failed in this regard. Right now it is mainly to get the ‘pack’ to work together with the military.  


Backstory:
Cora’s family had their farm near the Krolva District. They were quite poor, but never really minded that. As Cora was around two years old she started to remember things. She was able to read at the age of three. Her grandmother, having been a teacher, was now fully occupied with teaching Cora. Neither of her three siblings showed signs of intellect this early.

There was a huge starvation in the Krolva District, the result of two extremely hot summers with a sparse harvest. A group of bandits raided the village, killing the adults and taking their food and kids with them. They ended up selling her two older brother, sister and Cora herself to a group of mercenaries, specialised on training bodyguards for nobles.

As Cora was too young to start her physical training they just ended up training her discipline. Crying for parents or siblings just resulted into her getting beaten up.

After a year with the mercenaries she watched her brother getting killed by them, he was too weak. She tried to help him, but only got kicked away. After this incident they decided on starting her training early. Everyone else she was training with was one or two years older, thus five or six.
   Cora, of course, could not forgive them a single bit and did not really obey them, despite her training before. Everytime she did not do what they ordered her they either cut her back or got the whip. Over the course of two years she became to be an obedient and disciplined child, doing everything they wanted at cost of her developing two other personalities: Vec and Nex. The latter, the quiet one, was in charge to keep the real Cora from getting hurt.

Around her seventh birthday Cora had recovered enough to permanently take over the body once again. Her basic training at this point was almost finished, including fighting and survival skills, knife throwing, martial arts and first aid skills.

Another result of the training and punishment was her sense of pain deadening.
For five years she was trained in martial arts and melee fighting until the day she was supposed to get sold to a noble as a bodyguard.

A group of stationary guards freed everyone. Their leader came up to every kid and inspected them, they put everyone in the orphanage, except for Cora. When their leader looked at her he realized that it was hopeless to try to get her back to live as a normal kid. He took her with him. After two weeks he gave up on trying to let her play with the other kids, she just ended up training all by herself and called it playing.

Since she was freed Cora had never spoken a word to anyone. Her new Foster-father decided to take her with him to the walls. Cora brightened up, talked with a lot of people, and it was her dream since then to join the military and prove to her foster-father that she was able to help people.

As she was telling the other thirteen year olds what her dream was the titan attacked and killed her foster-father. One of the soldiers who knew Cora took her with him to safety. She managed to recover from that last loss really quickly.

One year later, at the age of fourteen, she joined the military.

She hasn’t seen her older sister or older brother since then.

   She managed to hide her disorder successfully for two years. In those two years she did encounter titans on various occasions. After the military found out that she was suffering from multiple personalities they decided to kick her out for the sake of her not hurting anyone or losing control. Given her abilities and Adar vi Rauco taking a liking in her, her chances of working for the military again with other mercenaries are quite high.

(Throwing in a suggestion - maybe write different stats for Cora's difderent personalities? Like give Nex a much higher intellect stat, for example)

Was meaning to approve this, but I find Alan's suggestion very interesting. I'll wait with the approval until that suggestion is accepted/rejected.

(anyway Alan... They're Nec and Vex. You managed to get it into Nex)

I would say this is fine now...

It's up to you if you want to rely on my opinion but everything seems to be reasonable.
