This article contains plot details from one or more of the books.
Galana's pelt color is described in Watch Wolf as the color of storm clouds, yet she carried a noble bearing. She had the green eyes of the wolves of the Beyond. She also may have had many battle scars. Galana had a black or brown nose.
Galana MacNamara led a group of MacNamara she-wolves to fight in the war that may have started, thanks to Dunbar MacHeath. However, the war is stopped when Faolan and Edme rescue Toby, a grizzly cub who was cubnapped for Dunbar's purposes of starting a war between the Watch wolves and grizzlies.
Galana was killed when a rock pierced her heart. Her death caused the fight in which Airmead was injured by Heep, and Brygeen and Alastrine were killed. Outclanners also tore at her flesh, and tried to lap up her blood, and eat her heart believing it would give them strength. She and some of her clan later appear to Airmead and Katria as lochin.
