She is three years younger than Lightning and is Snow's fiancée. Quite opposite to her elder sister, Serah exudes an air that makes others want to protect her—but her heart is as firm and true as Lightning's is. Still, her curiosity leads her to disaster as she is first branded as a Pulse l'Cie and then imprisoned by the fal'Cie.
Serah appears in the iOS version as a purchasable character. She is the sole character representing Final Fantasy XIII-2, and appears in her attire from the game.

Though everyone else believes Lightning to be dead, Serah alone remembers the smile her sister gave her that day three years ago when Cocoon was saved. So she sets off across time and space with Noel to find her sister.
Serah returns as a playable character, and is the main representative of Final Fantasy XIII-2. She is available from the start by transferring save data from the second demo. If the player did not select her among their party of four, or download the demo, she can later be unlocked by collecting Indigo Crystal Shards.
She is a Spell and Treasure oriented character. Her Limit, Ultima Arrow, deals damage in proportion to her Magic and Luck.

Unlike Lightning, her older sister, something about Serah invites the protection of others, though she is perfectly capable of standing up for herself. Her curiosity proves to be her undoing, leading her to be branded a Pulse l'Cie.
Serah is a Time Traveler, whose combat role is Offensive Magic.
If Serah rings familiar, it is because her growth chart mirrors that of fellow blaster Edea from Final Fantasy VIII, or Krile from Final Fantasy V. She shows slightly better Speed than does Edea, yet despite a better weapon draw, she lacks Defense and Resistance. In spite of her faults, Serah is as good or better an archer-mage than Maria as well. As many battles in the Lightning Saga emphasize ranged attacks and magic, the player may want to consider pairing Serah and Hope to help bring down foes that otherwise stump melee attackers.
Her default Soul Break is Wound, which at the expense of one Soul Break gauge deals two magic non-elemental attacks to one target, with a small chance to Sap it. The bow Starseeker (XIII) grants Serah her Super Soul Break, Ultima Arrow, which for one soul gauge segment deals five non-elemental magic attacks to all foes with a high chance of inflicting Slow. Upon its mastery, Serah's Magic is augmented by 10 points.
She can equip accessories.
Serah appears as life-element ability cards.
Serah is mentioned as living in the same village as Snow following his brief exchange with Lightning.
Serah appears depicted in her Final Fantasy XIII official render. She also appears in her Final Fantasy XIII-2 attire, her DLC White Mage and Summoner outfits and her Theatrhythm Final Fantasy artwork. Her cards are ice-elemental, possibly alluding to the color of her crystal tear in Final Fantasy XIII.
Serah appears on Triple Triad cards in the version available via Final Fantasy Portal App.
