Serena (セーニャ, Seña) is a character from Dragon Quest XI. She is a dependable healer, capable of using recovery magic, and is seen playing a small lyre. Both her and her twin sister Veronica come from the land of Arboria and have sworn to protect and aid the Luminary on his journey.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Serena is a young woman with indigo eyes and long blonde hair pulled back with a green hairband. She wears a green kirtle over a white long-sleeved dress with puffy shoulders, an orange skirt with a silver buckle around her waist, and purple shoes worn with orange socks. She also wears a pair of blue earrings and blue pearls around her neck.

She is a neat and tidy beauty. Although she is calm, laid-back, and compassionate, Serena is also slightly hapless and causes worry for her twin sister Veronica. Veronica states that Serena is the younger twin, but due to her transformation, Serena appears to be the older sister.

NOTE: Serena will temporarily gain all of her sister's abilities near the end of the first half of the game. This technically makes her a Sage for the duration, in the classical sense.
