Koriand'r was an Alien from the Planet Tamaran. Not only was she an Alien, she was an Alien Princess to boot. Born like all her race with the ability to absorb the power of the Sun and convert it into the ability to fly, she would have been a great asset to the team. However, due to the threat of war from a race of Aliens called the Citadel, she like all the young on her planet were trained in all aspects of hand to hand combat by the Warlords of Okaara, who resided on a neighbouring asteroid. So when Koriand'r as old enough she and her older sister were sent to learn the skills they needed to help protect their home world.. So Koriand'r was also a fully fledged warrior too. BUT her skills did not just stop there.
When her home world was over run by the Evil Citadel Aliens, with help from Komand'r who was Koriand'r's elder sister. she found herself due to circumstances sold into slavery. This she accepted in order to help save her people from complete annihilation,
After years of abuse Koriand'r was forced to kill one of her captures, this brought her back into contact with her sister Komand'r who was now herself a high ranking member of the Citadel.
|Komand'r who would become the deadly BLACKFIRE|
BUT Before she could be executed on the orders of her evil sister, both Komand'r and Koriand'r were kidnapped by another evil race called PSIONS. The Psions were a group of sadistic alien scientists who enjoyed dissecting their emeries to find any weakness to use against them. The Psions knowing that the Tamarain race had the ability to absorb the energy from a Star or a Sun decided to see just how much energy they could absorb before exploding. So both sisters when subjected to a deadly experiment.
Komand'r unlike the rest of her race could not fly, as an illness in childhood had robbed her of this ability, and with that the right to become ruler of Tamaran. This had meant that the roll of the next monarch would bypass her onto her younger sister Korinad'r. This had been a major resentment for the older sibling, and was the basis of her hated or her sister, her parents and all the Tamaran people.
As both sisters absorbed more and more energy the pain and torture was almost at a point where they were both of the verge of death. However, at that moment people loyal to Komand'r attacked the Psion base. This caused the machine holding the sisters to explode. The result was both sisters now had energy powers that meant they could both fire "Star Bolts" from their hands. Koriand'r could still fly, and her star bolts were bright busts of energy.
However, Komand'r still unable to fly found her energy blasts were dark and more powerful. The sisters fought but Komand'r almost defeated by her sister escaped....... but that would not be the last Koriand'r would see of Komand'r.
Koriand'r escaped herself in a stolen space craft where she ended up crash landing on Earth. Meeting Robin and the other heroes gathered by Raven.
Koriand'r was nicknamed Kory by the Titans. Later Kory would adopt the name Kory Anders when she spent time working along side Donna Troy as a fashion Model. As Robin, aka Dick Grayson was the first Human she bonded with, she had an automatic attraction to him, as he did for her. The two would remain lovers for most of their time as Titans. They became engaged and planned to marry, but that's a story for another time.
Next time another Old Titan becomes a "New" Teen Titan.
Until then ENJOY.
