Nora is a student at Coldwater High School (CHS). She's good at biology although its her worst grade and had been tutoring her best friend Vee. After the rearrangement of the seating plan in the biology lab, she is now sitting with Patch. She assumes something is not totally "right" with him and that he is even more dark and mysterious because of the lack of knowledge Patch is giving her about him and his past. Though she's attracted to him, she struggles with it due to his secrets and the odd situations that surround him. She soon meets Elliot and Jules, and is unable to decide who to trust. Her father was murdered a year ago, and she is forced to see the school counselor, who has her own agenda.
Nora is described as a “smokey-eyed brunette with volumes of curly hair that holds its own against even the best flatiron”. She is also described as having “bar stool” legs.
