Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt is the privileged and entitled daughter of a billionaire and a captive of Outpost 3. She is a character in Apocalypse portrayed by Leslie Grossman.

Background

The only daughter to her billionaire father, Coco is determined to make something of herself. 

Personality and Appearance

Coco is a bossy and entitled woman in her mid-40s. She has aspirations of being a social media influencer but seems clueless about how to do so, enlisting the help of her younger personal assistant and hairdresser to help her in her efforts. Due to her affluent upbringing, Coco does not have some of the life skills that most people develop, relying on others to help get her through the day. Before the apocalypse, Coco dresses stylishly and ensures she always looks on trend. Upon her arrival at Outpost 3, she is forced to wear 18th-century style clothing due to her 'purple' status. Mr. Gallant still regularly styles her hair to fit this look.

Story

Coco is getting her hair styled by Mr. Gallant at a salon in Los Angeles in an attempt to launch her career as an Instagram Influencer. Everybody's phones suddenly receive an emergency alert that a ballistic missile is heading towards Los Angeles and to seek immediate shelter. Coco dismisses it as a hoax until her father FaceTimes her to tell her that the threat is real and that a missile is also about to hit Hong Kong, where he and Coco's mother and brother are. He tells Coco that he has four places reserved for their family at a safe location but that they are not going to make it and instructs her to get into a car and go to Santa Monica airport where a private jet is waiting to take them to safety.

On their way to the airport, Coco calls her husband Brock and tells him to meet her at the airport. Coco's personal assistant Mallory tells Coco that she needs to go home but Coco begs her to stay, telling her she would be lost without her and offers her her brother's ticket, to which Mallory agrees. As they arrive at the airport, Mr. Gallant and his grandmother Evie show up. Mr. Gallant tells Coco that he heard her father say there were four spaces and that he and Evie are here to take the remaining two. Coco tells him that they can't as Brock is on his way, but Mr. Gallant tells her that he'll never make it in time due to the chaos on the roads. Coco reluctantly agrees and calls Brock, who tells her that he is stuck in traffic. She sees a group of men coming to try and steal the plane and is forced to leave Brock behind, boarding the plane before the men can take it.

Onboard the plane, Mallory goes to the cockpit to ask the pilots where they are going but finds that the plane is unmanned. Suddenly, the missile hits Los Angeles and the plane begins to rock violently, but it restores itself quickly. Coco, Mallory and Mr. Gallant look out of the window to see a mushroom cloud rising where Los Angeles has been destroyed.

A few weeks later, Coco is struggling to adapt to life at Outpost 3. She has been giving purple status and is made to wear 18th century clothing. Mallory, who has been made a gray, asks Coco if she has spoken to Venable about being made a purple, but Coco tells her that Venable scares her.

After eating her cube for dinner, Coco protests that she is still hungry and demands better food for the $100 million ticket price. Venable overhears this and slaps her to the shock of everyone at the dinner table, causing Coco to back down. Coco is later horrified when the group realise Stu has been served as dinner, telling Mallory to come and stick her fingers down her throat.

Eighteen months pass without the residents of Outpost 3 being rescued and they gradually lose hope that help is coming. After being told by Venable that they are cutting down to one meal a day, Coco questions the point of the entire operation as she believes they are just waiting around to find out how they die. [1]

For a hundred million dollars a ticket, I expect goddamn Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen cooking us real food!"
