"Just know that you'll always have family here if you decide to go." - Nora to Cody
Cora was the angst friendship of Nora Cooke and Cody Scott, who lived together in the same home for runaway teens. After moving to Blackwood Mountain, Cody became one of Nora's closest friends, and vice versa. Nora was consistently there to support Cody, and frantically worried about him when he ran away. She was also the first one to know about Cody's crush on Amber and is a huge fan of his poetry. Nora was the first person Cody told about his parents wanting him to move back in, and Nora told him that she wasn't going to force him to choose her over his parents.
When Nora got sick, Cody became very concerned and took her to the doctors and paid for her medicine, although Nora initially lied about what was wrong with her because she knew Cody would want to try and help, and she didn't want him to worry. Cody eventually took matters into his own hands and contacted a lawyer to sue Nora's parents so that she could afford surgery and make a recovery.
Nora was the last person Cody spoke to before he died, and Nora felt extremely guilty after he died, thinking that she could have stopped him from taking his life, despite Cait pointing out that she would have only prolonged his death to a later date. At Cody's funeral, Nora confesses to Cody's coffin that she loves him, and later, she comes to term with the fact that Cody is gone, and keeps one of his jackets which he wore at the hospital while she was in surgery as a memento.
