Dead Rising Wiki

"Thanks, sugar. If you ever need a protection again, look us up. We're in the book under Guardian Angels Personal Security."
—Cora, after being rescued

Cora Russel is a survivor in Dead Rising 2. She is found in the pool area in the Palisades Mall during the mission Fetching Females. She reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role.

Fetching Females[]

Main article: Fetching Females

Cora and her friends, Summer Chavez and Nina Suhr are found in the pool area in the Palisades Mall. Chuck Greene attempts to get the girls to follow him to the Safe House, but Cora tells him that they refuse to move unless he pays their price of $10,000. After Chuck agrees to "settle the tab," Cora thanks him and tells him that they are "worth every penny." The girls then agree to follow Chuck back to the Safe House.

After reaching safety, Cora reveals that she works for Guardian Angels Personal Security and tells Chuck to look them up in a phone book should he ever require their services again.

Ante Up[]

Main article: Ante Up

Cora is one of the survivors that challenges Chuck to a game of strip poker. If defeated she will remain partially naked until rescue arrives.

Sandbox Mode[]

Cora will spawn in the Americana Casino with a massager. Once defeated she drops her weapon and $10,000.


  • Cora, Summer, and Nina are a reference to Charlie's Angels. They work for Guardian Angels Personal Security, and are escorted by "Chuck," which is another name for "Charlie," to the Safe House.
  • Cora's notebook picture differs to what Cora actually wears. It shows her without her robe and hat whereas she wears her robe and hat during her stay at Fortune City.
    • However, it is possible to get Cora to look like her notebook photo by defeating her in Ante Up, in which she will remove her clothes, including her hat and robe.
  • Cora awards Erotica points when her breasts and crotch are photographed.
  • She shares the same forename as Cora, a character from Dead Rising 3.
  • If one of her girls is killed, she and the other girl will stop following Chuck. If both Summer and Nina are killed, Cora will stop following Chuck, saying she is too "choked up" to continue, unless he gives her $10,000 more dollars to continue. Once he gives her the money, she rejoins the party with an extra 10,000 PP bonus.
