The Gedo was the first aura battler created in Byston Well after the arrival of Upper Earth engineers Shot Weapon and Zet Light. As the first aura battler, the Gedo was crude when compared to later models such as the Drumlo. The Gedo’s basic aura power requirements were high, and its speed and aura conversion ability were both low. The Gedo’s sole armament was a simple sword. To gain enough funds to build his aura battler army, Drake Luft sold the Gedo to many buyers, including his liege lord King Furaon Elf of the Kingdom of Ah. When Drake later rebelled against Furaon in the battle to capture Elf Castle, the Gedo units performed very poorly against the Drumlos and were easily destroyed.
