"My world was conquered... I'll not let that happen to this planet, too. You can't understand— I won't let this planet die!"

Starfire is a DC Comics character created by Marv Wolfman and George PĂ©rez.

Princesses Koriand'r and Komand'r of planet Tamaran were captured by the Psions, who experimented on the sisters and gave them the ability to shoot solar blasts. Koriand'r escaped her jailers and reached Earth, where she joined the Teen Titans, then formed by Robin (Dick Grayson), Changeling (Garfield Logan), Cyborg (Victor Stone), Kid Flash (Wally West), Raven, and Wonder Girl (Donna Troy).

While a member of the Teen Titans, Koriand'r was frequently romantically involved with Nightwing (Dick Grayson). She nearly married him, but their wedding was interrupted by Raven (who was evil at the time). Raven murdered the priest before he could pronounce Dick and Koriand'r husband and wife. The relationship was already on unsteady ground, with Koriand'r fearing that Dick was rushing into marriage and also concerned about the anti-alien sentiments that sprang up in response to the news of the impending nuptials.

In the New 52 reboot, she joined Red Hood and the Outlaws for a time. But as of 2015, she has a solo series that has her living in Key West.

Out of comics, her more prominent appearances include the Teen Titans series and its follow-up/spinoff Teen Titans Go!. In both shows, she is voiced by Hynden Walch. She is also a principal character in the live-action Titans series, portrayed by Anna Diop.
