Cordelia was born on Londinium to Hugo and Victoria Sexton growing up in a life of privilege. Her father is an Alliance General and her mother is member of Parliament. When the war broke out her older brother Conrad followed in the path of their father and took a commission with the Alliance. Cordelia was mostly known for being a socialite, living life as one large party. Cordelia did whatever she wanted to despite how it looked or reflected those around her. As a teenager she was thrown out of several boarding schools due to her behavior, much to her parents disapproval. After somehow remaining to stay in a school long enough to graduate Cordelia made no moves to go to secondary school or join a profession, she merely worked the party circuit on Londinium. Her mother urged her to grow up as she was starting to be an embarrassment to the family. It was her father's idea to grant her a commission, thinking military life would straighten her out but that was exactly what it took to push her completely away. The night she was due to ship off to the academy she booked passage on a freighter ship to the Outer Rim enlisting instead in the Independent Army under the name Cori Sutton.
When she first joined she did it merely to irritate her parents but the more time she spent with the Brown Coats she began to realize the differences between the Core and the Outer Rims. She completely dedicated herself to the cause and learned that she was a natural with guns and fighting. Towards the end of the war she had rose to the rank of corporal. During the Battle of Du-Khang she got separated from her unit and stumbled across an Alliance officer who had also been separated from his unit. When she confronted the officer she realized it was her brother Conrad. The two of them stood in a stalemate, guns drawn at each other both trying to explain to the other why they were on the wrong side. Cori will never know if she got through to her brother as a sniper bullet took him out right before her. Shocked from seeing her brother killed mere feet from her, she staggered back stepping on a mine. Luckily for her the mine was defective and the blast smaller than intended, as a result she was wounded.
She woke up a several weeks later in an Independent hospital camp with damage to her spine causing her loss of use in her right leg. A field medic came up with the idea for a hydraulic brace and managed to convince one of the mechanics to make her one out of scrap parts. With it she was able to walk again but is almost always in pain. The loss of her brother combined with constant pain from her injury led Cori to drinking, she soon became addicted to alcohol and pain medications. Due to her experiences in the war Cori has developed PTSD and, is prone to lashing out at people, experiencing flashback and nightmares.
At the end of the war she moved from freelance job to job usually getting fired due to her bad attitude or the fights she had become known for picking. She bounced between being a hired gun on different ships and spending time in local jails in the rim usually after being arrested for causing trouble. Until three months ago when she ran across a person from her past who eventually convinced her to join his crew. As far as Cori is concerned Cordelia Sexton is dead and only Cori remains.
