Satan has one son, but my sisters are legion, motherf----r!
~ Cordelia to Michael Langdon

Cordelia Foxx (later Cordelia Goode) is a major protagonist of American Horror Story, serving as the main protagonist of American Horror Story: Coven and American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

She is the Headmistress of Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, and later reigning Supreme Witch of the Salem Coven; she is also the daughter of Supreme Fiona Goode.

She is portrayed by Sarah Paulson, who also portrayed Lana Winters and Bette and Dot Tattler in two other seasons of AHS - Asylum and Freak Show, respectively.


Cordelia is gentle and caring toward others, particularly her students, much to the chagrin of her mother, Fiona. Her disdain toward her mother is made clear when she tried to give her mother a potion that would have put her into a coma for a few weeks. Cordelia's relationship with her mother seems to be based on these sorts of actions as well as quips and sardonic remarks. However, despite attempting to even murder her, Cordelia was intelligent enough to conclude the Coven would not survive without her mother's power. She shows a dark side by proclaiming Queenie as "dead" to her for the witch's betrayal and alliance towards voodoo. As a teenager, Cordelia was left behind by Fiona to Myrtle, who was in charge of the academy back then. Cordelia frequently displays her love to Myrtle, often referring to the latter as Auntie Myrtle. She has shown extreme dedication, and loyalty to the coven, and her students.

Appearance wise, Cordelia is a young blonde haired woman with brown eyes (later one brown, one blue when her sight was restored) and a light complexion. She is seen with glasses at times.


  • She is the third character in American Horror Story to be portrayed by Sarah Paulson. The first was Billie Dean Howard in Murder House and the second was Lana Winters in Asylum.
