I feel that Cora is not appreciated enough. I think what she lacks in conversational and social skills, she makes up a lot by being a good friend and an exceptional biotic wielder. Her lack of conversational and social skills is not her fault either. She was outcast as kid due to her biotic power so it’s not surprising that she finds it difficult to connect to others.
Despite that, Cora always expresses her concern for Ryder’s well-being. Her biotic ability is exceptonally top-notch and I believe that she was the one whose power deflected the missiles back to the Kett ship in her loyalty mission. If your character also possesses biotic or tech abilities, she’s the perfect team mate to bring into battle for deadly combo detonation.
Cora could have so easily been written as angry & bitter toward Ryder for becoming the Pathfinder, but other than a bit of frustration at the beginning, she was always the most steadfast in her support. She always seemed to be there to reassure Ryder & to remind everyone that, yes, Ryder may be inexperienced, but they ARE the Pathfinder. I don't really know what my point was. Just appreciating Cora. Also, I romanced Reyes, so she was the one to speak to me before the final mission. It was nice.
I saw a post saying the exact opposite and it bothered me so much. When she reminds Ryder of their role and the authority that comes with it, I don’t see it as “you’re the pathfinder and I’m not” criticism but as her trying to give them the legitimacy and reverence that comes with the role. She clearly respects the difference in their positions. She is wistful of what could have been, but immediately puts it aside and is always in a “what do you need me to do?” mood when it comes to missions.
I also find that her “why not me?” questions regarding the fact that Alec didn’t chose her never turns into a why Ryder?“ question. It’s not about why Ryder was chosen, it’s why she wasn’t. She tries to understand her flaws, she doesn’t question others and their competence.
And she’s very supportive, yes. It was lovely talking to her before the final fight. (I think Liam is like that too, btw.)
Was gonna save this for the final day of
#dwarf appreciation week, but I’m too excited. I decided to do some quick colored doodles of a few of the awesome Cadashes that grace my dash. These girls belong to some great artists, writers and people! … except for Oda, she belongs to me :P
People have all kinds of reasons to hate her apparently?? Because she’s a woman, because she’s white, because she won’t shut up about the Asari, because she has the most romance content yadda yadda it’s just bad. I’ve never hosted anything like this but I guess there’s a first time for everything, I’m totally down for it tbh !!
I’m trying to find someone to host Liam week now so we can pick the dates. I have this anxiety about fandom events happening at the same time
