Corie is friendly, cheerful and optimistic, most of the time the glass is always half full whenever she is concerned. Most of the time you will see her with a smile, unless of course she is in trouble which is rare in the classroom, outside not so much. Her overactive imagination often leads to this trouble, as she tends to get to involved in her games and not think things through before acting. If you feel your being followed (you will easily know) or hear random yelling like Tarzan behind you chances are it’s Corie playing with her plush.
Corie however can be rather childish, asking heaps of questions, taking what pokemon say literally and peaks of being hyper before collapsing from tiredness. This childishness also makes Corie more of a follower then a leader and will panic if put in a position where she has to make decisions as she usually just follows her friends.
Corie was born in Lilycove city, into a family with 3 older siblings. Her family lived on a small street near the entrance to route 121.Their mother was a Linoone and father was a rather laid back typhlosion. Both parents had full time jobs, their father was a mechanic and mother worked an office job as a receptionist, and because of this Corie and her siblings would spend a lot of the time home by themselves, well until 5:00pm at the least. Growing up with two older brothers and a tomboy sister meant she was somewhat destined to be a tomboy too, although that still didn’t stop her from carrying around her favorite plush.
From a young age Corie had been adventurous and this was mostly because of her father who would tell stories about far away places such as Jhoto where he had grown up. Corie would explore where ever and whenever she could even if it was only under a bed or in a cupboard, everything would become an adventure. Climbing a set of stairs would become climbing a mountain. Because of these adventures her family would often lose track of her, though as she grew older this was less of a problem they knew where her usual exploring spots were. Though this did lead to them making the end of the street the boundary, unless however, she went with her siblings. Her sister called it the unknown abyss, the place of no return. It is said that if children went past there alone they would be lost forever. Of course it was just the end of the street, but to Corie it was a place of no return, just as her sister said.
To Corie her siblings were interesting as they were all only a few years apart but were interested in and enjoyed different things and so they were what spiked Corie’s curiosity. Tyler, was a Linoone was the eldest son and eldest of the siblings, being 18. enjoyed the arts whether it was drawing, painting, photography, he liked it all and it was what he wanted to do when he was older. Hiro, a typhlosion was the second eldest of the family and eldest daughter she was 16. Hiro evolved earlier due to her love of battling and sports. Then there was a the exact opposite. Chester, a quilava and the third eldest, he was 14 and interested in science. Chester, unlike his other siblings committed most of his time to study and preferred to be indoors reading or looking over science concepts rather than playing or interacting with others. Whenever they left the house Corie would follow because it was a chance to explore. Usually Hiro was the one she followed around the most as she would do more things Corie found exciting, like skating, ball sports and even climbing trees.
Corie went to your average primary school where she had a small group of friends. Unlike most of the girls in her class however who would sit and talk or jumprope. Corie was always running during recess or lunch, Corie would be found playing different sports or ruff games and didn’t mind getting dirty or injured. Due to this the majority of her friends at school were guys, apart from a few girls who had similar interests to her. During class Corie would listen to the teacher for the majority of the time until around the last 10 minutes, in which she would usually end up staring out the window, not because she was bored but because she was trying to figure out how to make it fun. This was a normal occurrence for Corie and often the only reason she ever got told off at school as the teacher would think she was bored and would doze off instead of listening. It was this particular day however that the teacher decided to call in her parents to discuss what the issue was even though to Corie there wasn’t any. During the discussion the teacher recommended a school situated on an island, she said it was highly regarded and would be a good place to focus on studies. Corie thought it might be fun as it would be a new place to explore and so didn’t interrupt the discussion. After some discussion and her father’s persuasion that she could explore without them having to worry, her parents agreed to give it a try and so sent off an application.
