Phebe, Cora’s sister, suffered from a chronic illness by the name of lymphoma since birth. For her entire life she had been isolated in her home daily, not being able to go anywhere or to do anything with anyone, this often made her very angry, manipulative and jealous with her sister Cora. When Cora reached her teenage years, Phebe would often beg her to take her different places just so she could basically live and make friends with others despite her condition. One night she ended up leaving the house with Cora to hangout with a guy Cora referred to as JD. She ended up losing her virginity in that same house but at a tragic cost once she ended up dead and dumped in a shallow grave after her first night of pleasure.

Cora’s Mother

Cora’s mother seemed to be very tough to grow up with. During the first episode she told Cora that she had a sister but it wasn’t a very welcome or inviting way to tell her. She flat out said that when Cora was a baby inside of her, she took up a lot of her energy and left no energy for her sister to be born healthy later on in life. This automatically placed a lot of blame on Cora for her sister Phebe being tragically ill her entire life. Typically this would lead to a lot of guilt on a person overall if they’re being blamed for their sibling being chronically ill. Her mother often used Phebe’s sickness as an excuse for everything she did wrong by telling her because she didn’t do whatever it was that she told her to do, this meant that it was the reason Phebe was sick. This led to a life of child neglect and abuse for Cora often times through mind games.

JD is a childhood figure of Cora’s. You can’t really say they were friends, nor can you say they were enemies, but they had this deep connection with one another the day they both locked eyes. This was no deep romance though, not even true love. Their relationship involved nothing but sex and drugs. But after a long night of partying with Cora and her sister Phebe, things got out of hand when Phebe ends up dead.
