No, it's how I hide my powers. But where I'm going, I'll never have to do that again. I can finally stop pretending to be something I'm not.
~ Karolina Dean.

Karolina Dean (/kæˈroʊliːnə/ kair-roh-lee-nə), also briefly known as Lucy in the Sky, is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics award-winning series, Runaways.

She was created by author Brian K. Vaughan & artist Adrian Alphona. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she is portrayed by Virginia Gardner.

She debuted in Runaways #1 (April 2003) with most of the other main characters. Like every member of the original Runaways, she is the daughter of evil super-powered criminals; while searching through her parent's home, Karolina inadvertently discovers that her parents were Majesdanian invaders. Majesdanians are an alien race that absorbs solar energy and reradiates it in the form of the colors of the rainbow. She is often called "Kar" or "K" for short, and is known for her free spirit and kind nature. She is a vegan and peace keeper, and once mentioned as being a protester.

Karolina is the group's only lesbian/bisexual character. She is the only extraterrestrial in the group, except for a period of time when her Skrull fiancée, Xavin, becomes part of the team. Runaways creator Brian K. Vaughan played a significant role in the character's subsequent development as well as artist/writer Adrian Alphona, both of whom spent most of the first volume of the series hinting that Karolina was romantically attracted to fellow member Nico Minoru.
