Eliza "Liz" Cormier was the last born in a litter of four puppies: three boys and one girl. Her family was very close despite how much traveling they did apart as traders. After joining her brothers in Krokar, Eliza rose in the ranks to become Navigator in the Foundation path.
When Krokar disbanded amidst tragic circumstances, Eliza underwent a darkening of her bright and bubbly personality. Whilst her mate and child were kidnapped for an extended period, Eliza did her best to hold the remnants of the family together in The Shoal, plotting revenge against the cult who'd brought about Krokar's demise.
In the Winter of 2018/2019 Milos went on a mission to rescue a long lost family member; Eliza gave birth to her seventh and final child (her sixth by Milos), Thistle Cormier, while her mate was gone.

This is Liz's most common form. She is willowy with a trim waist.
Eliza is spunky and organized with a stubborn streak, especially when someone is trying to change how her things are organized. She is the peacekeeper amongst her older brothers, and she does whatever is asked of her, but particularly enjoys cooking and falconry. Liz is fond of sarcasm and has a domineering streak which she acknowledges openly and frequently makes a joke of. In fact, she's more likely to be found wisecracking and deflecting questions about herself than having in depth discussions. She tends to shy away from seriousness, but is always ready to help family or a pack mate - even if her efforts to help are irritating.
Milos Parhelion: In late 2015 Liz realised and admitted she had feelings for Milos, and in January 2016 the two began a relationship. In the Spring of 2016 they became mates and in August 2016 they welcomed their first children into the world. Liz and Milos have been through a lot, including the stillbirth of two children, but they remain utterly in love; Eliza is more devoted to Milos than to anyone.
Willow Cormier: Eliza's eldest child, born in December 2015 and fathered by Storm. To her surprise (since she was never a huge fan of children), Liz loves her to death. Willow went travelling in 2017 and Liz missed her eldest daughter. When Willow returned shortly after Krokar's disbandment, it was a bittersweet moment for an emotional Eliza.
Logan Cormier: Eliza's oldest child by Milos. She has no idea where he gets his bossiness from >_>
Bramble Parhelion: Eliza's second oldest child by Milos. Bram will always be Liz's baby. Could get awkward when he starts meeting girls.
Cora Cormier: Youngest daughter by Milos. Cora is surprisingly mature for her age and is often the first to stand up to her Mother.
Lucille: her sister-in-law. She likes Lucille, although she finds that she gets on Lucille's nerves sometimes.
Finlay Cormier: Eliza's middle older brother. The two get along fairly well, though Liz doesn't approve of his choice of lover. When Eliza killed a cultist in an act of vengeance, Finlay was prepared to step up and take the fall for her.
Tybalt Cormier: Liz's oldest brother. He's generally protective of her, and she has him wrapped around her little finger... mostly. They've drifted apart and have only seen each other a handful of times in the past five years.
Storm Cormier: Liz's adoptive brother - she was jealous of his bond with Gus since the day they met, later developing an envy of the past she never got to share in. In September 2015 she confessed her love for him. In October 2015 the two began a relationship which resulted in a single daughter. In January 2016 Liz realised her feelings for Milos Parhelion, and broke things off with Storm.
Peony: Peony and Eliza were "frenemies" for several months, before the Collie mix disappeared, abducted; Peony was later rescued and went off to Old Ironsides.
Walker Dupree: Liz initially disliked Walker flirting with her and later, when she saw him as hurting Finlay, that dislike deepened. These days she's still unsure of the Southern wolfdog, though she grudgingly leaves him alone for her brother's sake.
Sian Damaichu: Eliza bumped into the shy girl in Amherst and felt oddly maternal towards her, helping her to track down her Father, Eros Damaichu.
Eros Damaichu: Eros's attitude drives Liz insane but, typically optimistic, she's determined to find some good in him.
Aster Cormier: mother. She died during the hurricane in 2012.
Briar Cormier: father. He died during the hurricane in 2012.
Galilani Adahy: Eliza met the AniWayan when her falcon evaded her in The Dampwoods. The pair solidified their friendship when Liz admitted to Lani that she was in love with Storm. Liz considered Lani one of her very best friends and had a connection with her which went deeper than most of her friendships, but they lost touch in 2016. With AniWaya disbanded, Liz wouldn't know where to start looking for Lani.
Nvda Eclipse: Eliza and Nvda share a fondness for cooking and Eliza hopes to learn from her.
Gypsy Chanterelle: Having known Gypsy on and off since they were teenagers, Eliza has gone from detesting her to developing a grudging respect for the Coyote - mostly due to Gypsy's ability to pick up on Eliza's feelings before she's even aware of them.
Ciara: A good friend of Liz's and someone she looked up to. A role model of sorts.
4. Skills and Inventory
Eliza has become very good at working with birds of prey, mostly due to the bond she's developed with Sidonia.
She's a competent cook, though she doesn't put quite as much effort in as she once did.
Eliza is good at sailing, having been doing so since she was a puppy.
Eliza once loved to trade for her pack and even had a shortlived stall at The Outpost. Since Krokar disbanded the items she's interested in have changed somewhat, from trinkets that might help a pack to prosper, to information, weapons, pelts - more practical things.
Eliza was born to a family of fishermen. Like the rest of the group, she learned to sail on a river at a young age, having been in a canoe before she could shift. She was the last puppy born in a litter of four. Her brothers tended to fight amongst themselves and she was able to avoid it for the most part, leaving her to spend more time with her mother instead. The pair found a baby falcon that had fallen from its nest and Eliza raised it, which was the beginning of her interest in falconry.
Her closeness to her mother meant that she was hit especially hard when they died in 2012, however the strength of their family helped her move forward. She still misses her parents quite a lot.
In 2014, their home flooded, so the pack decided to move. Eliza stayed to help with scavenging from their previous home with Tybalt Cormier but eventually set out for the new lands of Krokar on her own.
Along the way, she came across a dog named Peony who had been taken hostage by a loner. Eliza offered to put Peony out of her misery before deciding to rescue her - trading away a beloved keepsake of her Mother's in the process. The two travelled the rest of the way to Nova Soctia together, and moved into the same cottage where they argued regularly, but still remained on fairly good terms.
In the Spring of 2015, Peony vanished. Eliza assumed she had "up and left" for her own reasons. This revealed a slightly more serious side to Liz, and it was during her time of searching for Peony that she began to get to know Milos Parhelion.
Throughout mid to late 2015, Eliza realised her feelings for her adoptive brother, Storm Cormier. When he temporarily left Krokar to face up to a dark and painful past, Liz was devastated - and angry upon his return. They shared a night of passion, resulting in the birth of Willow Cormier in December. Around that same time, Liz realised her true, deeper feelings for Milos and broke things off with Storm.
The start of 2016 saw Eliza and Milos cement their relationship and agree to become mates. Not long after, the Austringer Hostility rocked Eliza's world, quickly followed by the 2016 Meteor. After managing to overcome both events, she and Milos had their first litter, Logan Cormier and Bramble Parhelion in August 2016.
