- —Spirit of Caiera[src]
Caiera was born to the Shadow People of Sakaar. She was one of the few members of her race with the Old Power, the power to control the earth. When she was thirteen years old her village was attacked by the Spikes. Using her Old Power and fighting skills she fought the infected of her village until she was saved by the young Red King. The Red King had stood by and allowed her village to be infected in order to find a Shadow with the Old Power. He proceeded to enslave her. She was later freed and officially made the King's bodyguard. She supervised the enslavement and training of the Hulk and when he later broke free, she fought him and his rebel forces for the Red King.
After the Red King unleashed the Spikes upon the Hulks forces and was revealed to have been behind them all along, Caiera betrayed him and sided with the Hulk and his rebels. Together they managed to defeat and kill the Red King. The Hulk became the new King of Sakaar and when negotiating a new Shadow Treaty with the Shadow People, they offered to make Caiera serve him as his bodyguard just as she had served the Red King. The Hulk refused however, stating that he wanted her as his wife. She agreed, with the two participating in a private marriage ceremony where the Hulk revealed Bruce Banner to her for the first time, baring his soul to her.
As the two vowed to bring peace and stability to Sakaar, Caiera revealed she was pregnant with Hulk's child. Despite Hulk's attempt to shield her, Caiera and seemingly her unborn child were one of the many killed when the warp core on Hulk's shuttle exploded. Caiera's death, the deaths of millions of innocent people, and the resulting chaos that ravaged most of Sakaar's surface with violent volcanic eruptions drove the Hulk to return to Earth to exact vengeance on the Illuminati whom he believed to have detonated the shuttle.
Later, Hulk and Caiera's son, Skaar arose from the ruins of Sakaar. Caiera had given up her body using her Old Power protecting her son among others and became one with her world though her spirit lived on and attempted to guide Skaar, the son she was aware of. before being consumed by Galactus alongside the rest of the planet.

- Superhuman Stamina: While using the Old Power, Caiera's musculature was considerably advanced to the point where it produced considerably less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being. While the limits of her stamina weren't revealed, she could physically exert herself at peak capacity for at least several hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in her blood began to impair her.
