As Drake Luft spread the tides of war across Byston Well, new aura battlers continuously appeared on the scene. During the last battle for the Kingdom of Lao, Shou Zama’s Dunbine was finally outmatched by Drake’s latest aura battlers. Luckily for him, he was given the new aura battler Billbine, which was designed and built by Queen Ceila Lapana of the Kingdom of Na. The Billbine boasted several new features the Dunbine lacked, mainly the ability to transform into a wing caliber, which provided the Billbine with greater maneuverability during flight. The Billbine was also more heavily armed, including a pair of aura shot cannons mounted on the backpack. These cannons could be fired in both modes, and their effect was quite devastating. The Billbine was also armed with a standard sword, but it also carried a combination aura beam rifle/sword.
After receiving the powerful new Billbine, Shou passed the upgraded Dunbine on to Marvel Frozen. With this new aura battler and Shou’s amazing aura powers, the Billbine quickly became even more famous than the Dunbine. Soon after the Billbine entered the conflict, the Ferarios transported all aura battlers and aura ships to Earth. As before, Shou found himself again in Japan and was forced to escape from Japan’s Self-Defense Forces. After finding Marvel, Shou was reunited with the Zelana in Colombia. With the battle fiercer than ever, the Zelana joined forces with the Graon and Guran Galan to fight Drake’s forces. Near the end of the war, the Billbine was painted in a new darker color scheme. In the apocalyptic final battle, the Billbine was destroyed while engaged in combat with Bern Bunnings’ aura fighter Galava.
