Appearance:
Although relatively short for luperci standards (standing at 5'9" in her optime form), Serafina inherited the slender frame and hues of her father. Her fur pattern is reminiscent of an autumnal forest dappled in sunlight, and her eyes are a soft shade in the transition between green and blue. Her light brown hair falls just between her shoulder blades, although it is often loosely braided and woven with flowers, if the season allows.

She tends to dress for warm weather, leaving her shoulders and neck uncovered as her double-coat keeps her well insulated during the colder months. It's clear that Serafina also has a fondness for the color red, adorning herself with ties and ribbons of these hues, which she also makes use of in a variety of ways. Her outfit has been gradually reworked into one suitable for travel in the wilderness, although she holds on to the tatters of her old Onuban clothes for both sentimental and practical reasons. One never knows when they might need a makeshift sling!

Serafina does not have a commanding presence at all — you could easily overlook her, like a rabbit in the grass. She has an effervescent air that carries her through good and bad situations alike; even while "angry", she is non-threatening.

Empathetic and compassionate, Serafina is guided by her heart more than good sense. She and her siblings were ostracized growing up in Onuba, and this formative experience is what led her to develop a protective positivity rather than cynicism. She doesn't want anyone to suffer like she has suffered. She doesn't always make the smartest decisions, but she tries her hardest to look for and appeal to everyone's best nature. Serafina is the type of person who is first to notice if someone is left out, and she will make a concerted effort to include everyone. It will distress her if someone lags behind or if someone is alone (even if they've chosen to be alone).

Inheriting her parents' offbeat sense of humor, Serafina is kind of a huge dork. She is shameless and confident in most situations, and it takes a lot to have an impact on her sense of self worth. She doesn't seem to care much if people write her off or find her embarrassing, as long as they aren't afraid of her.

At her worst, Serafina has little instinct for self-preservation, forcing others into a position of protecting her from herself or the situations she puts herself in. She can be stubborn, insistent, and difficult to reason with once she's made up her mind. She also has a hard time understanding people's boundaries, and needs to be firmly reminded over and over again.

History:
Serafina was born alongside her brother and sister, Morholt Amaranthe and Siolene Amaranthe, in Onuba to Semini Amaranthe and Lokr Revlis. She had a mostly happy upbringing, with loving parents and doting relatives, including her aunt Akantha, grandmother, and many cousins. Despite this, Serafina and her siblings faced plenty of difficulties outside the Amaranthe estate; their older half-siblings Tiamat and Lotan created discord between the Inner Court families of Onuba after killing off the entire upper echelon of the Arena family. Their violence was blamed on the fact they were children of foreigners and raised on foreign grounds. As children of a foreigner themselves, Serafina and her siblings were thus cast under the light of suspicion, and there was no shortage of discrimination, from cold-shoulders to challenges to duels, and rumor upon rumor of their supposed propensity for violence and general unpredictability.

Serafina thus did not often participate in the courtly activities outside of the Amaranthe estate, but not for a lack of wanting. When Serafina finally found a friend in a young Moreno acolyte by the name of Isabel, she was over the moon. Isabel gave her a chance that few others did, at first under the pretenses of helping Sera "best her innate barbarism" and teaching her the ways of her faith, but a real friendship soon blossomed and eventually love.

This new relationship was cut short. Serafina found an injured Tercero Robles one night, and brought him to the secret sanctuary that she and Isabel shared for their meetings. She learned that he was a wanted man; his brother Dimas was addicted to gambling and in severe debt to the Moreno and Arena families. Dimas used his unwitting and law-abiding brother as a guarantor of his loans, and when Dimas fled Onuba, the repayment fell to Tercero. Tercero hid what his brother did from their family and made the payments at first, though he was eventually overwhelmed by them. Tercero was injured in the process of escaping his arrest.

After Serafina revealed his story to Isabel in an appeal for help, Isabel instead returned with Moreno guards. Serafina and Tercero were forced to flee that night, but rather than return to the Amaranthe estate and bring further shame and disgrace upon her family, they bought passage on a ship heading to the new world, where Serafina's brothers Calrian and Malik were said to live.

Serafina and Tercero arrived in Portland in the winter of 2020 - 2021. They were accidentally separated following a tense argument, allowing Serafina to run into her legendary older brother Lotan and Pazuzu Lykoi, and Tercero to find Tiamat. They were all reunited at La Estrella Roja in the summer of 2021. Finding that the way of life at La Roja was not what they needed, Serafina and Tercero left La Roja to join New Caledonia in August of 2021.

Serafina found home in New Caledonia for a time. After the siege on the kingdom in the winter of '21-'22, she joined Tercero in the Citadel while she decided whether she wanted to return to Onuba. Following a chance reunion with Calrian in the early fall, and other significant changes, Serafina decided to leave her pack and return to La Estrella Roja.
