Cerise is an extraterrestrial from the Shi'ar race. She arrived upon Earth after deserting the empire's brutal army known as the Grand Jhar, refusing to fire upon innocents and as a result causing the death of her crew. At first she was attacked by Excalibur, but when they realized she was only fighting defensively, they called a truce. Cerise became a member of Excalibur and was romantically involved with Nightcrawler, working with them on a variety of adventures.

Eventually, the Shi'ar empress Lilandra pardoned Cerise for her crimes, given their circumstances, and allowed her to serve out her prison sentence as a personal aide. Cerise's role in the Shi'ar Empire was to investigate reports of brutality and violence. Nightcrawler professed at one point that he still loved her, but at the time he was planning to become a priest, and thus could not rekindle their relationship.

Under unknown circumstances Cerise has joined the Graces, a group of female warriors, led by Gamora.
