She was offered the chance to leave and live life as a civilian, but she declined the offer, and was soon transferred to the Supply Division. Before each mission, she fills her backpack with various supplies, and treks out to deliver the goods to Regular Army Soldiers... but there's one problem. She's horrible with directions, and is likely to wander off and be found in a completely different location, earning her the nickname "The Wandering Ghost" by most soldiers. She later found out her sister Madoka also joined to become more physically fit, and was also placed in the Supply Division..... and shares the same atrocious sense of direction her sister has.

The Slug Gunner and its varients are considered the final evolution of Metal Slugs. Walking on two legs for mobility, or on treads for speed, this type has the highest firepower but lowest speed of common slug types. Variants include the Proto Gunner, which is an quicker unshielded version, and a multitude of mask-differentiated enemy variants. It is based on the rebel-designed LV Armor, which itself has variants in the Slug Armor and the Ptolmaic Unit.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The fact that they, unlike other slugs, requires ammo, can't shoot diagonally (some of them can do the heavy machine gun spreading motion), and takes one full second to jump makes it a liability at the worst of times.
