Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew up… in Pontiac, Michigan. Coraline and her incredibly inattentive parents have recently moved all the way across the country.

Living… in an apartment building called the Pink Palace in Ashland, Oregon. Coraline doesn’t much like her new home. The creepy Pink Palace used to be an old mansion.

Visiting… a place called the Other World. While exploring the Pink Palace, Coraline discovered a secret little door that leads to a parallel universe – one that appears to be much better than her bland reality.

Interests… exploring. Coraline loves a good adventure, and she’s always wanted to go explore with her parents who, unlike her, happen to hate the outdoors. In the Other World, though, Coraline’s “Other Parents” pay very close attention to her.

Relationship Status... single. Coraline is still just 11, so dating isn’t yet a priority.

Challenge… escaping the Other World. Despite warnings from her neighbors, Coraline ends up spending most of her time in the Other World. It is only when she is presented with the prospect of staying in the Other World forever that she begins to see how twisted it truly is.

Personality… brave, strong-willed, and adventurous. Coraline has a thirst for life. She hates staying inside and longs to explore the world. In the Other World, however, those generally positive traits might get her into trouble well over her head.
