Koriand'r, translated Starfire in English, is an alien princess from the planet Tamaran and a member of the Teen Titans. Starfire was born on the planet Tamaran as a princess and succeeding heir to the throne. However, she fled her home once her evil older black-haired sister, Blackfire, conspired against her. When arriving at Earth, Starfire quickly found a home within the Teen Titans where she chose to become a crime-fighter and protect Jump City from evil. Due to her limited knowledge in Earth's customs, Starfire struggles to properly assimilate to the planet and her gullible and kind-hearted nature is often used against her by both friends and enemies.
Starfire is kind-hearted, joyous, and optimistic, preferring to see the good in every situation to the opposite of apathetic Raven. Her sunny personality, politeness, and kindness is shared among both friends and even her enemies such as Jinx,Doctor Light, and the H.I.V.E. Five. Her kindness and overall good nature has earned her a reputation which includes always telling the truth and unable to fill the the merciless actions that are required of a supervillain. Starfire's innocence is shown to have a powerful effect on the Titans, and her puppy eyes often succeed in winning them over without a fight. Due to the sharp contrast that lying has against her personality, Starfire finds it hard to tell a simple lie, but became fluent which resulted in fights between her friends. She has a high sense of responsibility and morality as seen when she confessed about her lying and volunteered to leave the Titans because of it (which also highlighted a high regard for herself).
As a result of her naivety, Starfire is often at the receiving end of pranks from the Titans and this trait is occasionally exploited by her enemies. When Beast Boy was looking for someone to prank, he immediately singled out Starfire for her gullibility and tricked her into serving his every whim after she believed that she had killed him. Starfire was later tricked into continuing the holiday season by Beast Boy, Raven, and Cyborg yet the three of them were extremely guilty due to her childlike nature in wanting to experience the Second Christmas Miracle.Mumbo Jumbo exploited this weakness by knocking her out with flowers for a chance to escape.Blackfire periodically used Starfire's innocence to suit her selfish wishes yet Starfire would always forgive her. Upon realizing that Starfire genuinely cared for her, Blackfire attempted to apologize, but her latest trick severely angered Starfire and she nearly destroyed her.
When angered, Starfire's fury reaches its height with her hair sticking straight up, her eyes and fists shooting green plasma, and objects near her begin swirling around her.
Starfire is defined to be a beautiful young woman who stands at a statesque height, carries a tanned complexion, green eyeballs and irises and long hot pink hair. Unlike Raven, Starfire has pencil-thin legs and a less curvaceous figure. She has two bangs that sit on each side of her hair and lock of her hair that moves from each ear.
She wears a purple crop top with a matching purple skirt and armlets that are larger for her wrists but seemingly fit. She also wears purple go-go boots.
Starfire's solar-powered powers are derived from her Tamaranean biology, fueling her attacks with emotion.

Space Resistance: Starfire has the ability to survive in space without using a spacesuit as seen in Legendary Sandwich.
Starfire and Blackfire's relationship is rather complex and sometimes questionable. While Starfire loves Blackfire like any other sister and will still love her no matter what she does to her, Blackfire holds little affection to Starfire, example being how she framed her for an unknown crime by aliens and had Starfire sent to a galactic prison. After being tricked by Blackfire again, even after hoping that she had changed, Starfire became resentful towards her sister and worked hard to take revenge into matters. However, after a fierce scolding from Robin, Blackfire had learned that Starfire still loved her and wanted to be a better sister, but when Starfire escaped the prison to exact revenge against Blackfire, it seemed that Blackfire's apologies wouldn't convince an angry Starfire, who continued to brutalize her, until Blackfire gave Starfire back her doll and apologized for all the things she has done.
Cyborg's Love Matcher 5000 paired Starfire with Aquaman. While she initially didn't trust in the program, Starfire became attracted to the superhero after reading his comics and declaring him a handsome and physically fit. At Beast Boy and Raven's wedding, she sat next to him, but left him soon after the program matched her with a scratching post. Starfire quickly fought Beast Boy for the scratching post as Aquaman cried alongside Robin.
Starfire has had a small relationship as friend with Beast Boy. This was mostly shown in Ghostboy, where Starfire felt bad for "killing" Beast Boy. Beast Boy was also the person who taught Starfire how to lie.
Despite having a small relationship with him, Starfire truly cares for Beast Boy's well-being and often helps.
Silkie is Starfire's treasured pet mutant moth larva. Throughout the series, she is shown to deeply care for him, often dressing him or calling him her "bumgorf". She is shown to value Silkie over her friends to the point of nearly killing them when they revealed the maggot his disappeared but immediately calmed down once she spotted him in the elevator. Silkie is always shown to be near or playing with Starfire.
Starfire, along with Raven and Doctor Light, became friends. Because of Starfire's and Raven's friendliness, Light agreed to become good. However, this was crushed by Robin, Cyborg and Beast Boy almost killing him.
Jinx has had fun with Starfire and Raven in their girl's night out.
Starfire the Terrible
In order to make Robin eligible to be the greatest superhero in the world, Starfire volunteered to be his arch-nemesis and adopted the persona of Starfire the Terrible. Throughout her time as a villainess, she build a hideout in the front lawn, converted Silkie into her minion, and build robots that defeated Raven, Beast Boy, and Cyborg. She was ultimately defeated by Robin through the use of his R-cycle.
Due to the comforts found in H.I.V.E. Tower, Starfire disguised herself as a villain once more and joined the H.I.V.E. Five as the villainess Sapphire. However, due to her and the other Titans' disgusting habits, the H.I.V.E. resolved to blow them up alongside the Tower, forcing her to abandon the alias and confront them as the Titans wanted to be the ones to blow it up.
While at a steakhouse with Robin for a stakeout, Starfire decided to disguise herself as an old man detective named Jeff in order to hide in plain slight. She traced the origin of various crystals to an alley where it was discovered that Doctor Light was attempting to build a death ray out of crystal chandeliers. Starfire cheered with Robin at the success of her first stakeout and was angered when he revealed it was a ploy to get a kiss from her. She promptly returned to her Jeff disguise and told him to never mess with Jeff.
There have been episodes that implicate that Starfire is a good cook or at least cooks food for the team. However, the main dishes that Starfire has shown to serve or make is chilli and meatloaf.
In the episode, Baby Hands, when Robin is reminiscing the time that the Teen Titans first formed, every member of the team is wearing their outfits from the original Teen Titans comics. However, if noted, Starfire's outfit is slightly altered. Her one-piece leotard is shown to cover her breasts, stomach, and navel unlike the comics' design. While there is no explanation, it's quite likely that this was done because of the design's explicity from the comics.
In the episode Gorilla, Starfire has the ability to warp through the spacetime continuum, or in simpler words, travel through time. However, given the tone of her voice when she mentioned this, it's not an entirely good thing if Starfire does this for reasons unknown. However, it may be because Starfire fears of altering the time continuum.
