Raid at NightEdit
A few days into the Games, the careers attack the Capitol's Bane while three of their members are out scuba diving. Cora is awoken by Sarah killing the 10 female, and a struggle ensues. Denshi is alerted by the noise, but before they can gang up on Sarah, Thalia enters, scaring off Cora and Denshi.
The fight is brief, and the three capitol's bane members are captured by the careers. They plan on executing the members, but the timely arrival of Hamaji, Naida, and Lucia manage to kill off the 4 male and scare the remaining careers away.
Taking the Fight BackEdit

–Naida about the Careers, Tshe Hunger Games
However, it turns out someone had informed the careers, and they were waiting for the Capitol's Bane. Thalia ends up destroying the boat, standing the Capitol's Bane on the volcanic island as the careers escaped back to the resort on a boat of their own. Frustrated, Cora began to plan a way to escape the arena, being through with the games of the Capitol.
|“||That's when a loud howl rings throughout the island. Everyone turns toward the sound, and realize in horror what the volcano had actually done. Hundreds of the wolves were pouring out of the jungle, the lava driving them from their home. Heading straight towards us, looking for a meal.||”|

Plan to Destroy the ArenaEdit
Cora shares her plan with Hamaji and Naida to destroy the arena. She gets to work in the shoals on a lightning rod device that could be held and not electrocute the user. She works on it all night, only be interrupted by the treacherous District 11 Male. Cora manages to outsmart him and disarm the boy, killing the tribute with his own knife and feeding his corpse to the sharks.
|“||Our waiting finally seems to cease, when we hear a scream. I look to Hamaji, as we both begin to make our way to the tallest spire. When we get into view of it, the sight that beholds us puts the whole plan into jeopardy. The careers, their leader the 1 girl, holding Cora hostage, and waiting for us to show ourselves. We had walked right into this trap.||”|

However, the careers sneak up on the Bane, and manage to catch Cora off guard and hold her at sword point. When Hamaji attempts to talk the careers down with a speech involving Cora's plan, Thalia calls him a liar, and slashes Cora's throat with a sword, killing her quickly.
Cora placed 6th out of 24 tributes.
Cora is an intelligent, yet cautious girl who was super serious. Despite her lack of comedic nature, Cora was very loving, and didn't want to see her allies suffer. She was somewhat timid, too shy to admit her feelings to Hamaji, putting it off until later. As she died, Cora regretted many things, wishing she had succeeded in her master plan.
