Gala-Na is the High Councilor of the Albion High Council, and thus leader of the echidnas of Albion. Many of her policies and decisions were controversial and extreme, such as those made during the High Sheriff crisis or following Knuckles' evolution. However, she has always acted in the name of the "greater good" and her intentions were good. Gala-Na was captured following Albion's destruction at the hands of the Eggman Empire. She has violet fur, purple hair, blue eyes and peach skin. She wears yellow/amber dress, pink sandals and rings in dreadlocks.
Gala-Na believes that all the Echidnas of Mobius should be united in Albion, and resents the Brotherhood of Guardians for denying her pleas to bring the echidnas of Echidnaopolis back to Albion. She is incredibly determined, willing to do whatever it takes to achieve her objectives.
Gala-Na was initially depicted with lilac fur, light blue eyes, and yellow robes, with pink sandals and rings in her dreadlocks. However, she later appeared with red fur, purple eyes, and goldenrod robes.
Gala-Na requested that the Echidnas of Echidnaopolis should be moved to Albion, in the hopes that the Echidna people would be made whole. When the Brotherhood of Guardians refused, she became extremely angry.
She had the High Sheriff brought to Albion to be disassembled. However, Knuckles the Echidna disagreed with Gala-Na's position, and helped Antoine (the Sheriff's son) and Bunnie to escape with the High Sheriff.
She feared Knuckles' growing Chaos powers—a fear only reinforced by Knuckles using his Chaos powers during the rescue of the High Sheriff. She therefore had Nic and Nack the Weasels captured Knuckles, and then attempted to forcibly remove his powers by means of a similar device to the one that Dimitri the Echidna used to drain the Chaos Emerald powers into himself. However, the process was tampered with by Charmy Bee and his fiancee Saffron, who couldn't believe that Echidnas outside the Dark Legion were hurting Knuckles on purpose. The end result was Knuckles breaking free and becoming Chaos Knuckles, a green version of himself with limitless powers. Thus, Gala-Na's foolishness only resulted in alienating Knuckles and his allies, as well as making his abilities stronger than they were before.
Gala-Na's decision to act against Chaos Knuckles would have worse consequences, as the accident mutated Albion's top energy scientist, Dr. Finitevus, into a negative version of Knuckles who soon became a dangerous threat. She ordered his termination, but the white-furred Echidna escaped after sabotaging Albion's defenses; he later returned leading an army from the Eggman Empire to reduce the city to a wasteland. In her last act before the invaders found her, Gala-Na recorded this history of events on a disk that Remington, transported to Albion along with the rest of the surviving Echidnas by Enerjak, found amid the ruins and gave to the Guardian Locke.
- Karl Bollers planned to use Gala-Na as one of Robotnik's Sub-Bosses following Sonic the Hedgehog's year in space. However, this idea was dropped when Karl Bollers left the series after Sonic the Hedgehog #134.
