Marvel Studios is set to introduce Sera, its first transgender character in the debut season of “Loki”, the upcoming Disney Plus series, reports.

As being reported, the six-episode series will take place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame” and explore a different version of the story, with Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, at its center.

The “Loki” series is being directed by Kate Herron and will premiere sometime in 2021.

The Illuminerdi reported that the role is being described as a major supporting character that will not only appear on the series but also in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future. Meanwhile, Sera is an Anchorite.

Here is everything you need to know about Anchorite:

The Anchorites are a small group of male, wingless Angels who were kept inside a temple in Heaven, the Tenth Realm.

Sera was the only one of the Anchorites who was identified as a woman, thus being the first and, so far, and only major trans woman in Marvel comics.

Sera also happens to be in a relationship with the character of Angela who is the daughter of Odin, Loki’s father.
