Cora Concept by djeffers Cora Concept by djeffers
Hello peoples! Allow me to introduce Cora.

I don't do many African American characters, so I thought I'd use Cora as the perfect opportunity to help that. 

When her Kingdom is thrown into chaos, no royal is safe. Cora, Princess of her Kingdom and heir to it's thrown, is taken and raised in secret far way from the Kingdom and away from the clutches of her wicked aunt that now reigns over the Kingdom. Cora is told that she was left when she was a baby, but not the fact that she's a Princess and the next heir. 

Cora is a very sweet and kind person, but she can definitely handle herself. She may be a Princess, but she was raises outside of a castle, so she isn't a dainty flower. She's very outgoing and adventurous, so trouble is usually just around the corner as well.

To keep her safe, Cora is told to hide her special ability, a power that every royal is born with, and told to never use it around anyone. In secret, Cora uses her power since it's helps her feel closer to the world she feels she knows, yet has no memory of.

Cora only remembers small things from her life in the palace. Occasionally, she'll get a flashback or small picture in her dreams or if something triggers it, but it's usually something small like a golden hairbrush or the face of her mother. 

I also might make her an undersea artist! 

That's all I'll say.

So, what do ya'll think? Do you like the story? Do you like Cora? Do you have any more questions?

Sounds cool, and I like the idea of her being an artist. Is this a new story?

I'm glad you do. I think it could be interesting. 

It will most likely be one, but since it's original, I'm bound to stay with it longer if not for a while. Who knows, maybe it's the one.

I've always loved mermaids and I feel like every story or movie about them follows a mermaid/ mermaids who intact with the human world, but I don't think there's enough mermaid stories that stay in the water? Know what I mean? 

This is a character in the story that lives in an abandoned ship and loves to collect human objects (he hoards them.), and he and Cora might travel above, but only to look at the sky. When he's bored or wants to be alone, that's where this character goes. He's got a rock that he sits on in just looks out into the sky.

I quite like that idea, of having the mermaids exist in their own world without interacting with the humans. :D

Yeah, it's not done enough.

You won't see any human civilization, but the objects found under the sea might give hints to the time period.

Sounds cool. Do the mermaids live in buildings?

Yes and no.

They do, but it's probably formed out of sand or coral. 

Here's some inspiration I have for the Kingdom...

It's going to look different from all of those, but that's the rough idea.

I'm glad you think so.

I want it to be gold to reflect the energy that maintains the Kingdom.

I like this character, and I think her back story is interesting. Although I think you have a bit of a typo in you description. Wicked what, exactly? I think you just cut yourself off there.
