In X-Men #1, the team raided an Orchis outpost and discovered that they had captured Serafina. During Mike Carey’s pre-X-Men Legacy run, Serafina and her fellow Children of the Vault were introduced as genetic rivals for the X-Men. The Children were humans who experienced enhanced evolution during an accelerated timeframe. After that, the Children gained superpowers and became a standalone species of their own.
