  • From the start of the series, she is a close adviser to Daibazal, and is said to have inspired much of his evil, from the decades-ago invasion of Altea, to the lives thrown away in Galra's deadly gladiator arena. Under her guidance, Daibazal's ships scour the Earth, which had recently suffered the Third World War, for survivors. Five space explorers returned to find their world gone and themselves taken to Galra as slaves. Escaping, they made for Altea, where Honerva warned they could possibly awaken the ancient and mighty Golion, broken apart by a goddess as punishment for Golion's arrogance. When her prediction came to pass and repeated enemy attacks failed to stop Golion, Honerva herself traveled to Altea with Jaga. There, she stalked, isolated, cornered and assassinated team member Takashi Shirogane (Sven, who survived in the American version), believing that this would spell the end of the Golion team's ability to combine into the super robot. When the planet's surviving royal, Princess Fala (Allura) took Shirogane's place, this continued the deadly stalemate. Numerous BeastMen, spells, poisons, plagues and schemes came and went. While Daibazal became increasingly frustrated, he would turn his wrath on his former best general, Sadak (Yorak), and even his own son, Sincline - but never Honerva. Honerva kept a large monster-making factory on a section of land near Castle Galra, a laboratory even more hellish than the rest of the planet. At times she would aid Prince Sincline in schemes to impress his father, but seemed to hold him in some kind of disdain as well. Honerva survived for reasons unknown and for one that was very well known - she alone controlled the process by which beasts and sometimes men (like the fallen failed Commander Sadak and Prince Avok of Heracles) were turned into rampaging giant monsters. Two of Honerva's most notable schemes involved faking death and faking rebirth. When Princess Fala seemed to take ill and die, her teammates mourned and prepared to bury her. But when Sincline and Honerva tried to steal her body, they realized the death had been faked to make kidnapping the princess easier (In an ironic edit, the Voltron Force caught on to the scheme far earlier than the Golion team did). A later scheme near the series' end had the long-lost son of stratigest Raible (Coran) return amid rejoicing that fell away when it was discovered that the young man in question was a clone under the control of Galra, who assassinated Lady Hys (Nanny) before being killed himself. Fala found that the gravesite of Raible's wife and son had been violated by Honerva for this scheme. (The Voltron edit, restricted by disallowed mentions of death, quite awkwardly stated that the wife and son were alive in another dimension).
