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 playable character in Final Fantasy Record Keeper who could be initially recruited the Challenge Event Dangerous Beauty as the First Time Reward for completing the event's Mah'habara stage in Part 1.
Her growth chart mirrors that of fellow blaster Edea from Final Fantasy VIII and Krile from Final Fantasy V. She shows slightly better Speed than Edea, yet despite a better weapon draw, lacks Defense and Resistance. Serah is as good or better an archer-mage than Maria. 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.
