Coryn, or Cory for short, is is a male burrowing owl, or Athene cunicularia. He is the son of Myrtle and Harry and Kalo's younger brother, as well as the brother-in-law of Grom and the uncle of Siv and Bruno. As an egg, he was stolen by the Pure Ones, but was rescued by Coryn, who took the egg back to his family. His family was so grateful that, upon its hatching, they chose to name the chick Coryn in his honor.
The egg that was to be Cory was snatched by some Pure One refugees. Coryn managed to return the egg to its family. Upon hatching, the burrowing owls named him Coryn. The original Coryn stayed long enough to see the owlet go though some of his ceremonies, even allowed to bring the owlet his first worm. The original Coryn, after he left, assumed temporarily that he was supposed to be a tutor the owlet named after him.
Coryn later grew up and was just nicknamed Cory. His sister, Kalo, had taken a mate, Grom, and had a daughter, Siv. During the Burning of the Books by the Blue Brigade, Cory witnessed his sister holding on to a book of legends. The Blue Brigade claimed Coryn, who became king of Hoole and right now under the influence of the mysterious Striga, ordered this command. After Kalo fled, Cory decided to see the king. Cory became a key character in waking Coryn from the Striga's spell.
Cory, Kalo and Grom were sent to the Northern Kingdoms with Gwyndor, Coryn and Octavia to recruit owls for the War of the Ember.
