Starfire's design comes from her appearance in the tv series Teen Titans (2003-2006). She is a humanoid alien female from a planet called Tamaran and her real name and title is Princess Koriand'r. As an alien, Starfire has a range of emotion-driven powers unique to her people: she fires green energy beams called "Star Bolts" from her hands, and can later fire them from her eyes and generate large concussive energy fields upon hatching from a stage of puberty called "Chrysalis." She is also able to fly, and has super-strength; these powers are derived from Starfire's fury, joy and self-confidence respectively, but are neutralized whenever mired in confusion and self-doubt. She is able to assimilate a knowledge of other languages, mainly through mouth-to-mouth contact.
