She is the middle and the only female child of the Collins Family. The eldest being her brother Tony, and the youngest being Elliot. She seems to have a sibling rivalry with Tony, although they tend to hang out together a lot, which is ironic. She seems to hang out more with Tony than with Elliot, since Elliot is too busy with other things.
Cara was always in the center of attention, simply because she was the only girl. She was spoiled and showered with many gift which she got used to. But a tragic accident really made her think about every mistake she has done, although she continues to be the same person she is today.

She isolated herself like any normal person would when something bad happens, but she comforted everyone else, despite the fact that most of the time she wasn't around.
She often argues and insults her older brother, Tony, though it is because she admires him and wishes to be like him, due to the fact that her parents seem to favor Her brother in most cases also engenders hostility toward her brother. The reason that she acts mean is simply because she wants to be liked and actually fears being hated. She can be rude to her family sometimes but at the end, everything goes alright.
