Her guardian ghost is Vodyanoy, a nature spirit that is able to manipulate water. Zria uses a shamanic drum as a medium and her Over Soul allows her to manipulate water at will.



Originating from Kem, Russia and born on January 13, 1982, Zria was one of many children that were gathered together as test subjects at a Soviet research laboratory, that investigated extra-sensory perception. She nearly died several times due to the experiments they were subjected to and all the drugs they were given, in hopes of increasing their skills. One day, during an experiment that involved an Intravenous therapy IV lines she realized that there was a nature spirit present within the drip. This spirit was Vodyanoy, and they both managed to escape by conducting a Hyōi-Gattai. Wandering aimlessly, she would have died of cold if she hadn't followed some nature spirits, that were hiding underground, to safety.[1]

Shaman Fight in TokyoEdit

Not much is known about her during the first rounds of the Shaman Fight, but she did win two matches and advanced to the team competition of the second rounds.

Landing in AmericaEdit

She got on the Patch plane headed to the Patch village and was dumped somewhere in the American west. Not much is known about what she did and how she got to the village but she did beat the three month time limit and entered the Patch village with a power increase from the Great Spirit.

Shaman fight Second RoundEdit

She found out about the team stipulation of the second round and joined with Pino Graham and Tona Papik Cadimahide to form The Icemen team. Her team was paired up against Yoh, Ryu, and Faust of Team "Funbari Onsen". She and her teammates had a little fun with Team "The Ren" before the match showing off their respective powers. Just before the match on the battlefield, Yoh showed Team Icemen his new Double medium the "Spirit of Sword". The Icemen were frightened by this show but wanted to fight. They first concentrated their attacks on Faust and was beaten back by Faust's new gigantic oversoul. They next tried with Ryu and was also beaten back by Ryu's massive oversoul. They finally attacked Yoh but their attacks were completely worthless. Yoh then wanted them to attack at full force which the group happily obliged to. The Icemen launched a final attack but were finally beaten by the Spirit of Sword and were knocked out of the tournament.

Zria was seen after the fight with Yoh and gang. She had lightened up considerably since her team's defeat.

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

In the anime, she and her teammates never made it to the second round.
