A quick drawing before bed, so the background is pretty half assed. Cora at about age 16 getting trained by Rhihaya (Angie's grandmother on her father's side. She's only a mere 250 years old!) to be a diplomat. A "diplomat" in Phinora culture is someone that travels the world and studies other cultures. Many Phinora diplomats stay on the islands and try to maintain peace between the various tribes of monsters. It's a looked down on profession as Phinora are encouraged to be warriors since birth. Those who are unable to or don't want to fight will rely on something else, the diplomat position is one of those professions.
Cora always hated fighting and didn't want to hurt anyone so she always snuck off and trained with Rhihaya to become a diplomat. Michon, Cora's mother, didn't like this as blood wielders are the pride of the Phinora and are the best warriors. Michon always hated how close Cora was to Rhihaya, as the two had an interesting history prior to Cora or Hajii being born. Because of this, Cora often got in trouble.
