"I will no longer be your slave!"
―Carina to the Collector[src]

Carina was a Krylorian slave of the Collector, acting as his aide and servant. She eventually grew tired of her master's cruel treatment of her and, in an attempt to kill him, she tried to harness the power of the Power Stone, but she could not handle its extreme power and was quickly killed.


Serving the Collector

Presenting the Asgardians

"I present to you, Taneleer Tivan, the Collector."
"Asgardians, it's an honor."
―Carina and the Collector[src]

Carina brings Sif and Volstagg to the Collector

Carina was the aid and servant of the Collector, a position she abhorred due to her master's negative treatment towards her and her predecessors. She presented the Asgardians Lady Sif and Volstagg to her master at his museum when they brought him the Aether.[1]

Carina defended her master when the Asgardians questioned his methodology, which involved the imprisonment of living creatures. After the Asgardians left, Carina and Tivan discussed plans to collect the other Infinity Stones, starting with the Orb. Tivan suggested hiring Gamora; Carina was unsure of that idea given Gamora's connection to Thanos.[2]

Claiming the Orb

"I don't have to tell you what happened to the last attendant who disappointed me. Do I?"
Collector to Carina[src]

While serving her master by polishing the cages in the Collector's Museum, Carina was reminded by the Collector that the last attendant who served him became a part of his museum when she disappointed him. Carina worked tirelessly to please her master despite her own growing hatred of him.

Carina finally comes to personally greet Gamora

When Gamora arrived at Knowhere in the company of the Guardians of the Galaxy with the intention of selling the Orb to him, she ordered an appointment with the Collector through Carina. Carina chose to make the Guardians wait before calling in the group after Rocket and Drax the Destroyer had broken into a drunken brawl. Carina stood by as the Collector explained the power of the Infinity Stone.

Carina dies upon touching the Power Stone

Upon hearing about the immense power of the stone, Carina sought to take the stone and use this power to free herself from her cruel employment, not understanding everything she heard Carina grabbed the stone in an attempt to use it for herself to kill the Collector. However, to her surprise the stone was more powerful than she realized that it instantaneously began ripping Carina's body from the inside, causing a massive explosion and making Carina scream in agony. The Power Stone made Carina's body disintegrate in a purple explosion, which only injured Tivan, but destroyed most of his collection.[3]


Carina had always to tolerate the cruel treatment of the Collector, her master. Abhorring her position as the Collector's aide for his negative treatment towards both her and her predecessors, Carina became a repressed individual, despising her master secretly while pretending to be faithful towards him, such as when she defended her master's Asgardian methodology. Desperate to achieve her freedom at any cost, when Carina became aware of the immense power of the Power Stone, she immediately grabbed it and announced that she will be no longer his slave. However, after hearing everything the Collector said, Carina refused to understand the Stone's power, and she ended up suffering an agonizing death.
