The Zelana served as the home base for Nie Given’s fight against Drake Luft’s military conquest of Byston Well. Although its design was based on the Bull Beggar class aura ships used by Drake and his allies, the Zelana was faster. Armed with several machine gun turrets, the Zelana‘s main defense was its aura battler unit. The underside of the ship’s hull could also hold up to two Fou wing calibers, though usually only one was docked at any given time. After receiving heavy damage during the last battle for the Kingdom of Lao, the Zelana was repaired and upgraded by Queen Ceila Lapana of the Kingdom of Na. When the Ferarios moved the conflict to Upper Earth, the Zelana was at first separated from its allies in Colombia. After reuniting with the Graon and Guran Galan, the Zelana continued the fight against the forces of Drake and Bishot Hate. In the final battle over the Pacific Ocean, the Zelana was destroyed during an unsuccessful attempt to ram Shot Weapon’s aura ship Spriggan.
