Thanks Porterhause for the video!

Serana Renewal - Special Edition

Thank you to everyone who downloaded, commented on, or endorsed the original mod!
I have decided to release a SSE version for you all.
However, since I am not playing SSE, I can't promise there will be much support for this version. Everything is tested and seems to be working, but, as always, if you come across a bug, please let me know and I will do my best to fix it.

Just a simple replacer for Serana. I made sort of a neo-noir Femme Fatale looking version of her for my own game, ended up really liking it, figured you guys might like it as well.

Comes with five different eye colors, three hairstyles, and support for UNP and CBBE. There's also an optional download to give her dilated pupils instead of slit ones, and an optional download to remove her fangs, if you prefer. Fomods for easy installation. :)

Requires Dawnguard, obviously. Shouldn't need anything else.

Added a standalone follower version (Claire) by popular request. She can be installed with or without the replacer, and vice versa :)

Install via NMM or MO, or drag and drop the folders manually if you so choose. If you want the dilated pupils just install them after and overwrite.

AFT USERS, BE SURE TO PLACE Serana Renewal.esp BEFORE AmazingFollowerTweaks.esp IN YOUR LOAD ORDER!


Q: Can you add _______ body type?
A: No, but you can replace the meshes yourself very easily. Just pick the compatible texture set in the installer (so for SevenBase, install the UNP option, etc) and then manually copy the FemaleBody_0/1 meshes to meshes\actors\character\Serana\Body and overwrite. Replace hand/feet meshes too, if you like.

Q: Can I cure her/will her eyes change?
A: Yes. Curing Serana works perfectly, and her eyes will change to their vanilla green color when she becomes human. If you don't want fangs as well, download the optional file.

Q: What armor is that?
A: Scroll down bby

Bugs ?

Serana's eyes are the wrong color!
Caused by AFT trying to overwrite her eyes to default vampire ones. Placing AmazingFollowerTweaks.esp after Serana Renewal.esp should prevent this.
If you're on a clean save and it's still happening you can also replace textures\actors\character\eyes\ with whatever eye texture you want her to use, but be aware that this changes the eyes for all vampire characters.

There's a gap between her neck and body!
Open the ~ console, select Serana, use the commands setnpcweight 20 and then disable/enable.
If you had another Serana replacer installed with a higher weight setting, her weight won't always automatically return to it's vanilla setting when you uninstall. Setting it manually fixes the issue permanently.

Let me know if you find anything else.


Pretty much everything used in this mod was created by others, I can only take personal credit for a few small parts. As such I ask that you don't reupload this mod anywhere or use parts of it without first getting permission from me and everyone else it belongs to. But if you want to use something for your own game, please do! Sharing is caring. ;)
