There isn't anything known about her history.

Throughout From Dusk Till Dawn: The SeriesEdit

Season OneEdit

She is seen talking to Richie when she tells him that she's been waiting for him. He notices that she isn't the the one he's looking for. She watches the show with the rest of the spectators and is part of the blood frenzy.

When the brothers beat the labyrinth, she and a few other culebras sacrifice themselves, dying from the sunlight reflecting off the disco ball.

Physical AppearanceEdit

She has a slim build, wearing only dark colored stripper lingerie. She wears a gold necklace with a single, red ornament at the end. She wears dark lipstick and has medium length black hair.


She is shown to be flirtatious and quiet most of the time. She does, however, shows she cares about the other culebras as she sacrificed herself alongside them.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

  • Immortality- Culebras do not age or decay and are immune to death by disease or sickness.
  • Accelerated Healing- Culebras heal from physical wounds much faster than humans. In addition, chronic illnesses, such as poor vision, are immediately corrected. For example, Richie was shot in the hand and had a large hole that caused him immense pain if too much pressure was applied to it. Upon transformation, the large wound healed rapidly and his vision was heightened, no longer requiring him to wear glasses.
  • Superhuman Strength- Karina has more strength than a regular human.
  • Shapeshifting- Karina can shape-shift into a reptilian form that is far stronger and more feral than their human form. It causes them to mentally degenerate into mindless animals that can be killed easier as they are not as smart in a fight and are more blood crazed, though when partially transformed, they are simply more aggressive and can speak, while other are more like hungry zombies and even hunt in hoards or packs. They either have flaked or scaly skin with sometimes hardened scales and horns.


  • Sunlight- Culebras are vulnerable to the sunlight and will die of exposure to it.
  • Staked- Culebras are vulnerable to stakes to the heart, as it will usually kill them.
  • Extraction- Karina is vulnerable to heart extraction.
  • Decapitation- Culebras are vulnerable to decapitation, but like snakes, they have been shown to still have movement.




  • Karina is a female given name and comes from Latin origin. It means "pure" or "beloved one".
