|Aliases||The Cursed One|
|TV Show||Buffy The Vampire Slayer|
Once a popular, rich, shallow, vapid, and very self centered cheerleader at Sunnydale High, Cordelia inadvertently became involved with the numerous strange and supernatural events via Buffy Summers. Originally ignorant (and in more than one way) Cordelia became painfully aware of the existence of vampires and the supernatural and a reluctant member of the "Scooby Gang". Upon graduation, she moved to Los Angeles to become an actress only to stumble across the Vampire With a Soul, Angel in his quest for redemption and assumed a more heroic persona before her death, helping save the world.
Cordelia Chase first appeared on March 10, 1997 on the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiere episode, "Welcome to the Hellmouth". She was portrayed by Charisma Carpenter who would go on to reprise her role as a supporting cast member for several seasons in both the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and it's spin-off Angel TV series.
Cordelia goes to Sunnydale High and is very self centred. She has feelings for Xander but hides them for the most part. After graduating from school she moves to L.A. to work with Angel and is given psychic, but painful, powers.

- "People who think their problems are so huge craze me. Like this time I sort of ran over this girl on her bike. It was the most traumatizing event of my life, and she's trying to make it about her leg! Like my pain meant nothing." ―Cordelia Chase on suffering; Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Out of Mind, Out of Sight"
