I decided to finally draw Serina as her actual species (bare in mind her species is one I made up) so her she is!
If you're confused, this is what I can tell you:
When Serina's planet was attacked by Dr Nerfarious when she was just a baby, her mother (her name is Carlisa) was the only one that managed to escape. Everyone else however, were terminated. Dr Nerfarious wanted the Anixian's power for himself, he wanted to control it, harness it, so he sent an army of warbots to find and destroy all Anixians. (side note: Serina's home planet called Alexia, was said to be a legendary planet that no one had ever seen before. It was in the farthest corner of the galaxy, separated from the other planets. It is said that the people on this planet had the power to heal any injury, and were able to use their lifeforce energy in any way they wanted. Of course, it was also said that when an Anixian dies, their lifeforce energy can be harnessed and used by anyone who finds it.)
When Nerfarious found out about this planet, he sought to find it and kill every single one of the Anixians so he could take their power and use it for his evil ways. Luckily, Serina's mother Carlisa Evelyn was able to take a escape pod and evacuate the planet with her only child. Unfortunately, Carlisa's husband and Serina's father Derik, perished with the other Anixian's to allow his wife and child to escape. The escape pod gets shot down by one of Nerfarious's battle ships, but the two of them manage to crash land on Veldin without getting hurt. As a desperate act to save her child from certain death, Carlisa finds a small orphanage and leaves Serina on the doorstep, but not before writing a single note with her child's name on it, and casting a spell to change Serina's appearance. Serina's pointy ears and wings disappear, leaving her with no unique features. Before leaving her child behind, Carlisa gives her baby her necklace, knowing that one day, it will help her find her child again.
Carlisa then escapes into the night, but is soon captured by Dr Nefarious. He tries to kill Carlisa straight away to take her energy, but finds that he cannot. Carlisa tells him that not only is she protected by a ancient spell due to her royal blood line as Queen (Derik being the King, making Serina a princess) but her power did not lie within her body, but in a special pendant. When Nefarious demands the pendant to be given to him, she tells him that it was destroyed when she crashed on Veldin, along with her child. Luckily, Nerfarious buys it, but decides to keep Carlisa hostage to force her to use the power that she did have to make his machines more powerful and deadly.
Serina is then taken in by Freda, a humble old lady who looks after the children in the orphanage. As Serina grows, her life becomes one full of tears and pain. She is constantly teased for being "different", and she was beginning to lose all hope of knowing who she was and where her family could be. All she knows, is that the pendant that she wore was the key, and no matter what...
She was going to find the answers.
