'My little Emerald', that's what her grandmother always used to call her when she was little. A nickname that would follow her through life as those closest to her referred to her as "Em" or "Emerald". Doria Sorci grew up a single child just outside of Lafayette Louisiana to parents that were working nearly all the time, so she often would spend time with her grandmother. When she could Doria would also spent time with her cousin whom she often referred to as ‘Couz’ for short and considered him her only real cousin as she couldn't stand the others. He was a few years younger than her but really treated him like a brother. Times were tough since their mothers had an on/off sister relationship to say the least. And it didn't help with his mother's drug problem, however, it did have him moving to Hathian where she would visit with her dearest cousin.
Growing up Doria had already been a misfit growing up, picking up smoking a variety of things at 15 and then drinking at 17, neither helping her post tragedy. Her parents gone so much they hadn’t even noticed that much, save for the heavy eyeliner she began to wear, and the stereotypical nose and belly ring just to spite her parents, (oh and she thinks it looks good too.) To this day Doria had seen her cousin last at his mother's funeral, even missing a little of beauty school that she would later get her certification in as a nail tech.
Skip forward to 2017, Doria encounters the worst tragedy of her life, the murder of her parents. They had been at a restaurant on 'date night' in the back but couldn't get out when supposedly gunfire erupted between a gang and cops. She was still living with her parents at the time, but working at a nearby all inclusive salon for hair, waxing and nails, (that also served booze, of course), and was saving up to move out soon. She’d began to drink and smoke much more heavily, getting into more and more trouble at work to the point where she ended up rage quitting over them always asking if she was alright, and then there were the neighbors. Always pestering her, and the one person she only wanted to see.. well he didn’t have a phone, her cousin in Hathian. The cops were another matter, as while she was not under investigation she had plenty of one to one unwanted talks of them, and it didn’t help that they knew of her ‘acting-out’ in her younger days.
Just wanting to get away from it all and start fresh Doria packs up and moves to Hathian after having just ‘visited’ to find her cousin with no success. Doria was tight on money since the supposed moderate inheritance she was to get the 23 year old wasn’t allowed to touch until the investigation into her parents death was cleared.Given that she sold their childhood home for what she could after settling debts and bills,, she wasn’t really left much considering. Just wanting to get away from it all and start fresh Doria packs up and moves to Hathian.
