In Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Before the beginning of the game, Cornelia was Gepetto’s daughter. Her and her mother both died. At some stage in his life, Gepetto recreated Cornelia as a doll, basing her appearance on the daughter he lost. Gepetto conducted puppet shows with Cornelia in his theatre, the Vosges Theatre, where they became very well known and famous throughout Paris.

Eventually Gepetto leaves Paris to travel with Yuri Hyuga. He stops using Cornelia for puppet shows and uses her as a tool from which to channel magic in order to defend himself from monsters. He briefly returns to Paris to pick up a dress he had commissions from Pierre Magimel for Cornelia to wear.

  • Since Gepetto is Alice‘s Uncle, this makes Alice and Cornelia cousins.
