Corinne Cavanaugh grew up in Fallcoast, living what many would consider the typical life of a Cavanaugh. Best schools, best clothes, tutors for school -- her parents even paid for a fencing instructor to give Corinne lessons once she was old enough to hold a fencing sabre. She graduated from St. Crispin's High School in 2014. Rather than go straight to St. John's University, however, Corinne spent two years in Portland, attending Southern Maine Community College, which boasted the best-rated culinary arts program in the state. Completing her AAS in Culinary Arts, Corinne returned to Fallcoast and finally enrolled at St. John's University, focusing on business and marketing classes to complement her culinary arts degree, with every intention of eventually starting her own catering company.

But things went sideways just a few days after the start of the spring semester. One cold January night in 2017, Corinne was kidnapped by an escaped fugitive. They wound up in an old, abandoned house well over a century old, and Corinne was stashed in a cold closet. By the time the authorities tracked them down and recaptured the fugitive, though, Corinne had suffocated in the cold closet, and wasn't breathing when they pulled her out.

And then, she came back again. Paramedics responding to the scene will claim it was CPR that did the trick; perhaps it did. Who knows?

Her parents buried the news, wanting to avoid the press as much as possible, and Corinne was sent away for several months to get her head back on straight, staying with relatives from her mother's side of the family in Boston. Recently, however, Corinne has returned home, but she's decidedly not the same young woman from before her abduction and near-death experience. She's got a new lease on life, and she has every intention of enjoying it to the fullest.

The Truth

What most people don't know is that Corinne's near-death experience during her abduction was much more profound. When she was found in that cold closet, Corinne was actually dead -- at least her body was. Her soul was in the midst of making the Bargain with a Geist known as the Frozen Bride, and it was struck just as the paramedics attempted CPR. She became one of the Bound at that moment -- a Sin-Eater. But given how far her parents went to keep Corinne's name out of it and then sending her off to Boston for nearly seven months, it's meant that Corinne has only a little practical knowledge of just what she can do as a Sin-Eater.

So, what will happen next? Only one way to find out...

Abducted: Corinne's abduction by an escaped fugitive in January 2017 was kept under wraps -- or, at least, the press was excluded from the juicy details confirming that she was the one abducted, thanks in large part to her parents' desire for privacy and to avoid the Cavanaugh name being plastered all over the news media. What some might know, though (mostly other family and perhaps some close friends), is that she nearly died from suffocation before being resuscitated, and that she was withdrawn from her spring semester classes at St. John's University.

Boston: Corinne just returned home after nearly seven months in Boston, staying with family relatives from her mother's side of the family. Her presence in Boston was to give her a chance to get back to living again after the traumatic experience of being abducted (see above). She certainly did that, all right -- in fact, she has a newfound vivacity about enjoying everything life has to offer.

Cavanaugh: The name stirs up images of high society, the cream of the crop. Being a Cavanaugh has meant Corinne has had the best: the best clothes, cars, tutors, smartphones -- you name it, Corinne's probably had it. It might have turned some heads when she initially went to a community college for a couple of years (more on that below) after graduating from St. Crispin's High School in the Class of 2014, but she did come back to attend St. John's University.

Culinary Arts: The reason Corinne went to Portland was to attend Southern Maine Community College, which boasted the best culinary arts program in the state. She could have gone further afield if she's wanted -- she is a Cavanaugh, after all -- but Corinne chose to stay fairly close to home. She actually graduated with an Associates in Applied Science in Culinary Arts in 2016, before coming back to Fallcoast to enroll in St. John's University.

Fencing: From the time she was old enough to hold a fencing sabre, Corinne was given instruction in fencing. She took those lessons to heart, and she's gotten pretty good at it, though she won't go so far as to claim to be one of the best (she's skilled, but not that skilled). These days, when she practices, she favors the rapier.

Frozen Bride (Sin-Eater only): Other Bound who meet Corinne are likely to get a crash course in this Geist -- a bride-to-be, kidnapped by a jealous suitor and thrown into a cold closet, where she not only suffocated but also froze before she could be found. She initially had only the desire for vengeance against those who harm others out of a twisted sense of "love", but being Bound to Sin-Eaters seems to have taken the edge off that. Corinne, in particular, prefers compassion for the victims and tries to better their circumstances however she can, though she isn't above the occasional desire to obtain vengeance for those who cannot.

Party Planner: Corinne, over the years, has learned how to (and how not to) throw a party. She plans and organizes for the occasion, and being a Cavanaugh certainly helps with just how good a party she can put together. That skill is a substantial part of Corinne's plans to establish a catering company.

Sin-Eater: Corinne's near-death experience during her abduction (see above) was more like an actual death experience. Just, she wasn't ready to give up, and a Geist known only as the Frozen Bride (also above) came to her with the Bargain. The manner of her death made her one of the Silent; her reaction to her death and subsequent second chance at life marks her as a Celebrant. Given her skillset, one might wonder if perhaps she'll make the effort to become Fallcoast's Mortuus Exaltatius. While she isn't a part of any krewe, she would be interested in perhaps joining one, or maybe even forming one.

St. John's University: Corinne attended St. John's for the fall semester of 2016, though missed the spring semester of 2017. But she's back again for the fall semester of 2017. As for extracurricular activities, there's the Knights of St. John, which she may investigate and see about joining, given her fencing instruction. She's currently taking classes in both Business and Marketing, and it's a distinct possibility that she may elect to go for a double-major instead of deciding between the two.
