ProfileEdit

Cornelia is a mage who was revered as a holy woman in the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus. Around Imperial Year 1162, a plague ravaged the Kingdom, claiming the life of the Queen Consort, Dimitri's mother.

In Imperial Year 1181, Cornelia is the mastermind of a coup d'état to overthrow the royal family.

Crimson Flower

Edelgard and her forces lay siege on Arianrhod unexpectedly. Upon learning this from Rodrigue, Cornelia accepts this development and unleashes her Titanus on the invading force. At her death, Cornelia simply laughs and says that Edelgard has been acting in perfect accordance to their plans.

Displeased that Edelgard had caused the death of his subordinates, Volkhard confronts her after the battle and imparts her with a vague threat about avoiding Arianrhod's fate before leaving. Immediately after, Hubert brings news that Arianrhod was leveled by "javelins of light," which instantly killed a third of the Imperial troops stationed there. The two deduce that this was the trump card of Those Who Slither in the Dark.

If Dimitri was sided with, Cornelia has Grand Duke Rufus, the Kingdom's regent and Dimitri's uncle, assassinated. She ensures Dimitri is condemned to death for the crime, making it appear as though the prince had believed the rumors of Rufus being involved in the Tragedy of Duscur and then murdered him in revenge. With Dimitri out of the way, Cornelia takes control of the Kingdom with the support of the western nobles and then invites the army of the Adrestian Empire into Fhirdiad, effectively surrendering the Kingdom to the Empire. Supported by Imperial troops, Cornelia and her "Faerghus Dukedom" set about quashing the rebellious eastern nobles, such as House Fraldarius, over the next four years. She revealed to Gilbert that she sought nothing less than the complete destruction of Faerghus.

Dimitri, who escaped his execution, rallies the Kingdom's loyalists in 1185 and eventually enters Fhirdiad to confront Cornelia. Upon her defeat, she reveals that Dimitri's step-mother, Queen Consort Patricia, was seemingly responsible for the Tragedy of Duscur. According to Cornelia, Patricia had wanted to see her daughter, Edelgard, again no matter the cost, and that had apparently resulted in the killing of King Lambert and the other Kingdom nobles in the Tragedy. Dimitri was shocked by this revelation, but with Cornelia dead, he had no way of determining if she had spoken the truth about his step-mother's involvement and turned his focus to fighting the Empire.

Verdant Wind

While Cornelia is never directly fought, she is mentioned by an NPC. After Edelgard's defeat and death, Cornelia abandons Faerghus altogether, disappearing to parts unknown.

However that was either a ruse or she was replaced by Those Who Slither in the Dark, Currently, she is a power hungry person who was more than willing to claim the throne for herself, even if it means murdering Dimitri’s uncle and framing the former for her crimes. Furthermore, she is a self serving tyrant, as she was willing to given her territory to the Empire.
