Ganessa, the 2nd ranked junior, challenges Satellizer, who is ranked first. She challenges Satellizer and is beaten up , but Satellizer begins to lose interest. An stubborn Ganessa keeps attacking and regains Satellizer's attention, but Satellizer is restrained by a Genetics Freshman and his strange Freezing . Ganessa takes the change and strikes Satellizer, defeating her and claiming the top spot in her class. Ganessa's victory sparks an uproar across the academy.
Some time after, Ganessa taunts Satellizer, who was approached by Kazuya. Ganessa's loud moth stirs an audience and she challenges Satellizer to a rematch, since her victory was unsatisfactory and she has nothing to lose. Satellizer silently agrees to the challenge and Ganessa attacks only to be beaten down. Furious, Ganessa assumes her Pandora Mode and quickly gains the upper hand against Satellizer. When Kazuya tries to stop her from harming Satellizer even more, Ganessa strikes him, prompting Satellizer to activate her own Pandora Mode and defeat Ganessa in a single attack. Ganessa refuses to admits defeat, and Satellizer is stopped by two faculty members before she can continue harm Ganessa even more. Ganessa is then taken to the recovery center.

10th Nova ClashEdit
- Main article: 10th Nova Clash
Ganessa is stationed in the Ravensbourne Nucleotide together with Arthur, Kazuya and Satellizer. Ganessa goes on to brag about how it is unsuited of her to be a mere guard and having Satellizer is unnecessary. However Satellizer quickly retorts that being in the Ravensbourne Nucleotide is the safest place to be and it's nothing to brag about. They soon get the announcement of the West Gate of West Genetics being breached. She informs her companions that there are three highly ranked 3rd Years stationed at other areas of the Ravensbourne Nucleotide. Ganessa goes on to further brag about how she won't get to fight but Arthur reminds her that it will be their first engagement against real opponents.
Ganessa inspects a wall after feeling the area around them shake. Arnett bursts through said wall due to being forced through it by Nova Form Cassie. Arnett orders them to fight but Ganessa is still unable to use High-End Skills. Ganessa and Arthur soon activate their Ereinbar Set but Arthur and Morrison's Freezing are useless against the Nova Form Pandora. Nova Form Milena and Cassie beat them however Satellizer persists and continues to fight Nova Form Cassie. Cassie initially has the upper hand and fires a particle beam at Satellizer. But Ganessa blocks the lethal attack from Cassie Lockheart for Satella. The left side of body is severely burnt and her right arm is severed. When asked why by Arthur, Ganessa informs him that she did it to help her comrade but gazing at Satellizer, she takes back what she said and instead says she did it to help those weaker than her. Ganessa loses consciousness and Arthur carries her on his back so he can get her medical treatment. As Arthur tries to get Ganessa to speak and as Kazuya tries to get Arthur to stop since Ganessa is most likely dead, Nova Form Cassie tries to attack them. But Satellizer steps in, taking the damage, both angered and grieved by Ganessa's apparent death and in the process of entering Nova Form.
After Cassie is defeated, Ganessa is soon heard coughing. Arthur and Kazuya then take her to get medical treatment. Ganessa is soon healed but yet to fully recover. As she sleeps, Arthur informs Kazuya that while Ganessa will live, her lifespan was shortened to due to the regeneration treatment.
Valkyrie Introduction ArcEdit
- Main article: Valkyrie Introduction Arc
Ganessa appears in one panel, as Satellizer sought out Kazuya to have them perform the baptism. She warned her rival that until he was baptised, he'd be nothing but prey for the second years.
Ganessa was initially ranked 2 among the 2nd Years. But due to Kazuya's interruption during the Carnival, Ganessa was able to take the spot from Satellizer. Ganessa is yet to learn and use any of the High-End Skills.
Chains of Binding consists of four chains with pointed-weights on the ends. She was able to come up with her own move and taking the advantage of her binding chains and long-ranged assaults, she organized a move with all of her chains attacking through all directions and angles, which she named All-Round Assault, she once used this move to defeat Rana, but was evaded by not moving at all, but also caused Rana some damage.
Ganessa has access to Pandora Mode. She used this only once in an attempt to truly win against Satellizer after Kazuya's initial interruption of their match in the Carnival.
Arthur is her Limiter and lover, although she diminishes this with her overly prideful personality.
While Satella is considered a comrade, Ganessa is very jealous of her because of many perks which Satella has over Ganessa. Though Ganessa sees Satella as her rival, they're still good friends and comrades.
- Ganessa is the second British Pandora introduced in the series.
- Despite her high ranking among the second-year Pandora's, Ganessa does not have any High-End Skills (for example being unable to perform accelerations), making her ranking somewhat an understatement in tandem with her prideful personality.
- The Korean rendering of her name is 가넷사 롤렌드 (Ganes-sa Lollendeu).
- In the anime Ganessa has never won a fight outside of a Carnival.
- When her hair is down she resembles Arnett McMillan and Ingrid Bernstein.
