Coriander is a character that appears in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. She is an anthropomorphic animal and one of the Spice Maidens.

Appearance

Coriander is a camel-like anthropomorphic animal. She has black eyes and brown skin, with her straight black hair flowing all the way down to her back. She wears a dark green dress that has gold trimming patterns a cross it and, to match, wears gold-colored shoes. She has piercings on both her ear and nose.

History

Past

Captain Plunder met Coriander when she was still a young girl and formed an impression of her as being sweet and innocent. However, she grew up to become a fierce fighter; Zorabel would state that Coriander and her sister frequently caused 'bother', for example, by brawling in taverns like The Pink Parrot in Scourge Bay.[2]

The Akotek Treasure

As part of Zorabel's plan to steal the Akotek Treasure, she insisted that Coriander, along with her sisters, accompanied Captain Plunder. Plunder protested against the idea though, claiming having women on a ship was bad luck. The girls joined Plunder's crew regardless, with their mother coming along.[1]

After arriving at the island where the treasure was, Plunder had the curse of the tomb placed on himself by accident. Coriander and her family then took the treasure back to their ship, unaffected by the curse. They then returned to Scourge Bay.[3][4][5][6]

Trivia

  • Like how the Spice Maidens are a reference to the Spice Girls, a famous English pop girl group from the 1990s, Coriander appears to be loosely modeled after Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham's Spice Girls stage persona.
