Lab 13 was created in 2022 with the sole purpose of developing the Pandora Project. After its foundation, many researchers came to join the project, including Dr. Scarlett Ohara in the year 2053, who personally oversaw the training of Gengo's granddaughter, Kazuha. The project included the Legendary Pandora, which are several hundred times stronger than ordinary Pandora. The five sisters were created from Maria Lancelot's and Gengo Aoi DNA. Ryuuichi Aoi, the father of Kazuha and Kazuya Aoi was also most likely created in this facility.

When the remaining Pandora are nearly wiped out by the Nova-Commander and her army of small-type Novas, three of the sisters from Lab 13 appeared; Cassandra, Teslad, and Windy May. Along with their sister Lucy Renault, who had been masquerading as a Valkyrie for the past year, they soon turned the tides of the seemingly lost battle. The Nova army was rent asunder, and their commander was personally felled by Windy.
After the great battle had ended, Gengo Aoi appeared on the scene, and revealed that all of the sisters from Lab 13 are from the same blood-line as Kazuya Aoi. He also tells them about their strength, which he proclaimed was several hundred times greater than the strength of an ordinary Pandora.
