Hope is weakness. It's an illusion meant to sugarcoat this sickening reality.
He was the father of Heather. He raised her with no hope after her mother died, so that she would not be disappointed in anything. The relationship between the two of them is rather cold.
In the gameEdit
Corey was first encountered, though not named for a short period of time, in the Beryl Ward, guarding the PULSE Machine with Taka and ZEL. He argued with Heather over her actions, ironically being told she "didn't come here to be lectured like you're my dad", and battled her while the player takes on his allies.

The plot here varies depending on whether or not all policemen have been found.
After Taka and ZEL have escaped, Corey attempted to do the same, but was stopped by the police force. They removed his hood and expose his identity to both the player and his daughter, who is emotionally shaken. Corey expressed that he had wanted to avoid such an outcome.
While the police were baffled that an upstanding person such as a gym leader would aid Team Meteor, Corey gave a cynical response about trusting authority, and assured them that there are more. After defiantly claiming the police force ultimately did nothing, he informed them that he would be at his gym and vanished.

In the Police Farce plot, Corey is battled on a Corrosive Field and has two Super Potions.

|A special report from... the Investigation Squad!
And now a special news report from... The Investigation Squad!
Up today is the Beryl Ward's Poison Gym Leader, Corey!
Corey is one of the more reserved Gym Leaders of Reborn. Unlike the others, it's uncommon for Corey to appear outside of his gym, home, or one other place. What place is that? Grimly, I can only answer, the Beryl Cemetery. It seems there's a certain grave that Corey visits often... But why? We, the Investigation Squad, must re-double our efforts to find out!
In battle, look out for Corey's Crobat! With lightning speed and deceptive power, not getting swept by this bat will be a feat in itself! Throw in its defensive moves to keep it in superior condition, and if you're not careful, it'll kick your grass!
And that's all for now! Tune in next time to... The Investigation Squad!
