Cera has brothers and sisters, who were seen briefly in The Land Before Time, and has a nephew, which is Dana (voiced by Nancy Cartwright, who also voices Bart Simpson in The Simpsons), and a niece, which is Dinah (voiced by Sandy Fox). Dinah and Dana made their appearances and were seen in The Land Before Time VI: The Secret of Saurus Rock. Technically they are actually her cousins as mentioned by her father.
Cera's father, Topsy, whose name was revealed in The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses, is seen in every film in The Land Before Time film series, but her real mother was only seen in background shots of the original The Land Before Time. In The Land Before Time XI: Invasion of the Tinysauruses, Cera's dad was in love with his new girlfriend, Tria (voiced by Camryn Manheim) and had his name, Topsy, revealed.
Cera is a bossy and snobby young dinosaur who tries her best to show no fear. She has no problem bragging about her accomplishments, even going so far as to fabricate entire portions to make herself seem more brave, but will run away at the first sign of any real danger. She is also very sweet and caring, but that side of her personality is usually masked by her normally gruff exterior. Cera also has a fear of heights, as seen when she and her friends have to cross a ravine.
In The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure, her design was slightly modified to make her look older and more appealing. Her head and face is now less round and more angular, but her body design remains true to the original film.
