I've been meaning to post an app for this group for a long long time. But school has really been kicking my ass for this past term, so I haven't had time to draw something I was happy with until now. And even then I was originally going to submit another character, but then I just wasn't liking how they were turning out...So I decided to go back to Cora. I did have to redraw her app picture a few times (sai actually crashed and screwed up two unsaved attempts halfway through)...But holy shit, words cannot express how happy I am that I finished this.
DOB: January 13th
Notable features: She has pointy fangs. ^-^
+ Enhanced senses. Much stronger than average smell/sight/hearing.
+ Doesn't need to breathe. So she can last in oxygen free environments. (E.g. Under water.)
+ Shape shifting- She can transform into a bat
+ No reflection or shadow.
+ Remarkably strong and fast, close combat comes naturally to her.
+ Fast healing, heals even faster when exposed to moonlight.
+ She’s very smart.
+ Good at solving problems/puzzles.
+ Good with close combat.
- Sunlight. Her powers greatly decrease in direct sunlight. (If she goes outside on a sunny day she’ll usually take an umbrella.)
- A stake to the heart. (Fatal.)
- Crosses and other religious relics.
Position: Vice-Principal, and History of Magic and the Supernatural Teacher.
Class Difficulty: Moderate. Most lessons consist of readings and lectures. The main difficulty is the large amount of content in the course, and it is required that students memorise almost all of it in order to pass this class. So it is in your best interest to get studying!
Experience: She has taught history at different institutes in the past, although has never had the position of vice-principal before.
Cora was born in 1828 to a middle class English family as the eldest child. Her parents were very loving, and made sure their daughter had a good life and a good education. Her sister Emily, became her closest friend. They knew that they could share everything with the other, and that they would never tell each other's secrets to anyone. Though she could never be sure, Cora believes that Emily took all those secrets to the grave.
As she and her sister reached maturity, naturally a few suitors came into the picture. Their father, over-protective as most fathers are, would not let them spend much time alone with the men. But on her twentieth birthday, she decided to go out and celebrate. On her own. Only Emily knew about it, and while she did want to go, Cora managed to convince her to stay at home, which might have saved her life.
Most of the night went well, until she met someone. A rather handsome man, someone who she could've sworn wasn't even in the room a short while ago. They spoke, he listened to her, joked around and flirted. It was all so new and he was so attractive and seemed so nice, so what harm was there in going to somewhere more private with him? When they were alone, he pulled her close to him and leaned down, but instead of giving her a kiss, he bit her neck and drank her blood. She found herself unable to move or speak as the vampire emptied her of blood, then looked at her with something resembling pity in his eyes. The next thing she knew was someone's, the vampire's, wrist pressed to her lips and the iron-like smell and taste of blood in her nose and mouth.
Burning hunger took over and she clung to his wrist for dear life. Soon enough the other pulled away and kept her from feeding more. After a few seconds of the two just staring at each other, he stood up and walked away, leaving the fledgling vampire to fend for herself in a world that seemed all new to her senses, heightened by the vampiric magic that was now the only thing keeping her alive. When the day came, she felt weaker than she ever had before and still hungry. No matter how much food she ate, she seemed to only grow more hungry and weaker. Finally, one night, she walked out on the street and after some time of looking found someone to feed off. It was easy enough to get him alone and feed on him, and he was left barely alive when she was done.
Almost two centuries passed since the day Cora was born, and for more than 100 years she had lived in the darkness, not seeing many sunrises before she came to the academy. Having nowhere else to go, she applied as a history teacher - who would be better at teaching history than someone who's experienced the majority of modern history? After getting accepted, she set to work almost immediately, umbrella and history books in hand~
Although Cora is a vampire, she is actually (usually) really helpful and sweet. And can often seem quiet. As a teacher, she likes to make sure that all her Students are Happy and are looked after accordingly. But she certainly isn’t a teacher you would want to mess with. Due to her sharp wit and senses she isn’t easily fooled and can tell lies apart from the truth with no difficulty. She definitely isn’t spineless and will give out detentions and punishment if she feels the need to. As a vampire she manages to resist feeding on humans with the help of medication, resorting to drinking the Blood of animals instead.

It's been quite some time since I've written one of these. I've been busy with school and such, which sucks. I've got so many gosh darn tests, assignments, and the occasional exam going on atm.
There has also been a little bit of stuff happening with a couple of irl friends, I don't want to go into it too much. Just people acting stupid and...Not nice--I've just figured out that...one of my best pals, is probably someone I'm better off not being friends with at all. But it's going to be okay! <3 I'll figure it out eventually!
