About this mod

This mod is a visual overhaul of our beloved vampire Serana, with a fierce and scary vampire look (total Vanilla friendly), with four new options for makeup. Designed for my story "A Skyrim's Tale" and shared here for everyone in the community.

The main idea for this mod was create a badass Vanilla-like Serana to fit my narrative "A Skyrim's Tale", as I don't personally like Serana looking like a supermodel or underage, and I also like her original concept and all the layers that her character have, so I tried to be true to her mentality and not make her my "Goth Cute Waifu with Daddy Issues", but a scary ancient and powerful vampire.
There are some options for her makeup if you want her more or less dark, or a fully bloodthirsty vamp. You can change it anytime by just reinstalling the mod using the Fomod options. All versions have an scar (thanks Molag Bal, you bastard!) I painted myself, realistic veins and other little details that give to her skin more unique and natural look. If cured, she will display pale eyes.
The name of the mod and my vision of Serana was inspired by this song:

IMPORTANT: You don't have permission to make modifications on her or her assets, and all custom assets should stay in that mod only, as I don't give permission for you to use it in any way.
You can do your things for private use but you are not, under no circumstances, allowed to share modifications publicly or privately. I also don't offer any support for private use modifications.
Please read the Frequently Asked Questions in this mod description.

Incompatible with all other mods that changes Serana's appearance, just that. She will work with anything else. If you install a mod that changes her appearence, be sure that Anima Nera have priority in your plugin list (put it on the bottom of the list should solve the problems). Although I am not fan of this mod, she works with Serana Dialogue Add-On without any problem.

If you find any other problem, just let me know.

As she is standalone, she uses her own textures and necessary stuff, you don't need to worry about installing mods for her to look like in the pictures, only requiring the Dawnguard DLC. To install use a mod manager of your choice, and if you want installing this manually just drop the archives in your Data folder (but I hope you know what you're doing).

Tho, I highly suggest you to use Expressive Facial Animation and Rustic Clothing by Gamwich to have the best experience of this mod and for your game in general! In a future update she will come with Kozakowy's Vampire Armor, requiring her mod as a master.

Q: What is the outfit in the pics?

A: I will list here the ones I use in my own pics or the ones I know. Please note that some of the picss were sent by other users, but I believe this list can help you:

Black Stays Corset, Empress Armor & Vampire Armor by Kozakowy
Vindictus Habitant and BDOR Pack by Team TAL
Lustmord Vampire Armor by AmethystDeceiver
DX Crimson Blood Armor by DesertX

Q: Can you (or me) change this, add or remove something?

A: No, unless it causes a trouble for the mod to work properly. I created her for my game and my aesthetic and I am sharing her with the community, but that doesn't mean that I need to make patches for your own specific game, especially for free. I will not make any special version to please your aesthetic, I can only fix issues and sometimes takes suggestions, like happened with the glowing eyes and hood with hair.
It also means that I WILL NOT allow any modification of her or her assets. If you don't like her scars, her UNP body, her underware or anything in this mod, just move on. Nothing here will be changed and I don't care if you prefer this or that! She is intended to look exactly that way. There is a ton of Serana replacers on Nexus, I'm sure you will find one you like.


Q: Help, she doesn't look right!

A: All I can say is to try to reinstall, rearrange your load order and see if there is no other mod conflicting with this one. Any other problem can be reported on the comment section and I will do my best to correct it, but remember "Death is certain, the time is not", so please be polite and patient as everyone has adulthood to deal with.

Q: Why she is using underware? There is no nude version of her?

A: The answer is simple: She is using underware because people use underware (if you don't use, not my problem) and no, there will be no nude version of her. If you can do it by yourself for your personal use and... purposes, good luck, but no one have my permission to do it public, just to be clear.


For people without any manners that think the modders are their maids: You can complain whatever you want... IN YOUR HOUSE. Any comment about "ur duur she is not naked, haha unplayable" or people that want everything to be a replacement for porn will be DELETED and I don't care a bit about it. Be warned!

Q: I don't like it / Don't like you!
