"Mae, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to upset you. I think you're a really great-"
Cole was Mae's high school prom date. The sad catastrophic events of the night left her so traumatized that she's still left mortified to this day. She's reluctant to talk to anyone about it. During the events of the game, Mae is uncomfortable at the possibility of encountering Cole at the party in the woods.
Players can learn about what happened at prom if the 'high school' prompt is selected during the encounter with the goth kids in the graveyard chapter with Bea.
Cole seems to have things relatively in check, unlike many of the other youths of Possum Springs. He appears to be in good spirits and is currently studying at an unnamed college/ university away from the dying town. When encountered at the party in the woods, he appears friendly to Mae. When she starts to drunkenly rant about her failings, he expresses his concern at upsetting her.
The Prom Edit
Mae was uncomfortable with the whole affair; forced to wear a dress and not knowing how to slow-dance. As she leaned in for a kiss, she messed up horribly and drew blood, leaving him bleeding profusely. She rushed Cole to the bathroom to grab some paper towels; shoving them in his mouth to stem the bleeding. She overdoes it however, and Cole starts to choke and thrash about.
At the same time, Mae starts to choke on some smuggled candy almonds. With Cole slumped against the wall, she manages to successfully administer the Heimlich maneuver on herself. However, as a result, she also ends up vomiting all over him; covering him in the remnants of night's chicken cordon bleu.
Right at that moment, someone walks in and finds the two of them: Mae vomiting into the sink and Cole dazed and choking. Mae, for some reason, thinks to pull out all the paper towels from Cole's mouth and flush it down the toilet, causing it to overflow.
She drags Cole out: the two of them covered in puke, blood and toilet water. Cole runs away and leaves, stranding Mae there. Mae has to hitch a ride from Josh to get home; crying on the back of his tractor as it inches along, holding up traffic.
Cole doesn't seem to be close with anyone in the band.
- Unnamed Owl - Cole can be seen standing next to him for a majority of the party.
- At the party, Mae vomits in front of him again.
- Mae is known to call him "Cole-io." The game's evidence leads it to be a former nickname she used to call him.
