Serena Cadenzavna Eve (セレナ・カデンツァヴナ・イヴ Serena Kadenzavuna Ivu?) is the late sister of Maria Cadenzavna Eve.

She was a Symphogear user and wielded the Airgetlám relic before her death.


Serena (セレナ?) - Means ready and calm from the latin name "Serenus". The name may also come from the Greek "Siren" with the same meaning. Serena also means "alarm/song" in Romanian.

Cadenzavna (カデンツァヴナ?) - is a family name which implements polish grammar, in which female names end in "a" (example: Kowalswa, Skladowska) and male in "i" (example: Kolski, Skladowski). This comes from the Italian word Cadenza which is a form of music that is usually played or sung solo.

Eve (イヴ?) - English name originating from Hebrew, meaning "life" or "living one". It is most famously known as the name of the Biblical Eve, the first woman and sinner who caused humanity to be expelled from the Garden of Eden.


Serena is a 13 year old girl who bears great resemblance to her older sister, Maria. She has warm brown hair reaching past her shoulders with light pink butterfly clips that surround the back of her head like a wreath. Her eyes are light blue. She wears a white dress with detached sleeves and yellow waist ribbons over a red shirt, complete with red tights and yellow shoes.

The relic she wore was Airgetlám. It was largely silver-white in color, with light yellow and blue accents.


Serena is Maria’s younger sister who successfully became a Symphogear user and displayed unparalleled talent. With her calm and gentle personality, she feels hesitant to use her gear’s power for the purpose of fighting. Her tender singing voice soothes Maria’s soul, and her smile has become the very foundation of Maria’s determination.


Maria and Serena were originally born in an unkown town in the Ukraine. They were constantly put at risk by the flames of war fanned by territorial and ethnic disputes in the region. Eventually, Maria and Serena lost their home and family in the wars and became vagrants, wandering aimlessly and huddling together to stay alive. Sometime later, they ended up in the White Orphanage as part of the Receptor Children project. During this time, Serena's song was used to activate the Nephilim.

Six years prior to Symphogear G, Serena sacrificed herself in order to defeat the monster Nephilim she had awakened by using her superb song. Singing the superb song caused heavy damage to her body, and she was then killed when she was crushed by falling debri caused by the energy whiplash from her song.

Serena owned the relic Airgetlám. As a Symphogear user, Serena has the ability to fight Noise with the use of the anti-Noise armour, the Symphogear, that clads her. As a candidate for the Symphogear, she has the ability to fight Noise with the use of the anti-Noise armour that clads her in battle.



  • Superb Song - The special property of Serena's superb song is the ability to manipulate energy vectors. It's categorized the same as Hibiki's song, since their abilities are very similar to each other. Six years ago, using a mechanical devise the Albino Nephilim was awakened and rampantly discharged massive amounts of energy. Serena manipulated the energy and used it to energize the Nephilim, bringing it back to its ground state and saving the lives of Maria, Nastassja and the F.I.S. personnel. However, the burden of taking on the Nephilim's enormous energy, coupled with the backfire from using the Superb Song, left the inside of Serena's body in shreds. As her song has absolutely no offensive capabilities or uses whatsoever, one could say that it was a special song intended solely for the purpose of saving others. Her Superb Song is strong enough to create small earthquakes.

  • GREMLIN†ROYALE - With her X-Drive, Serena make dissapear her Armed Gear, before drawing blade-like claws from her wings, she then flies toward her target, slashing her a first time before performing a second, finishing her target with a blast of light at the end.

  • Serena's death scene is similar to Tsubasa Kazanari's near-death scene in Season 1.
  • Serena is the only user who can pronounce the word "balal" correctly, instead of saying "baral" like the other Gear users. This is because her VA, Yui Horie, is experienced in speaking English.
  • Serena's holy chant wasn't heard in the anime; instead it was sung by her elder sister and appeared in the soundtrack.
  • She only sung half of the superb song in the anime, probably because of time constraints. The full version is available in the OST.
  • She was the only Symphogear user who wasn't given any character songs or participated in any songs, either on CDs or in the OSTs/as BD bonuses, prior to finally being set to receive songs in Senki Zesshō Symphogear XD Unlimited.
  • Serena is 2 years younger than Maria. If she was alive, as of AXZ, she would be 19 years old, soon to be 20.
