Biography

Bakugan Battle Brawlers

When Bakugan first began to appear on Earth, Runo found her guardian Bakugan partner in Tigrerra and joined the Battle Brawlers as their Haos player. When Masquerade began launching his attacks against the Battle Brawlers with having hired hands use his Doom Card to banish the Battle Brawlers' defeated Bakugan to the Doom Dimension, Runo lost many of her Haos Bakugan in the process. At the same time, when Alice Gehabich came to Wardington, Runo had her get a job assisting her at her family's restaurant. Though Alice does a good job as a waitress there, she seems to get a lot of attention from the male customers, much to Runo's annoyance. At one point, while doing the dishes one day, Alice collapsed, suddenly fatigued from something, much to Runo's concern. Later, after Drago evolved into Delta Dragonoid II to take down several of Masquerade's hired hands in the top ranked Brawlers in Klaus Von Hertzon, Chan Lee, and Julio Santana, freeing them from the spell Masquerade and Naga had put on them, Runo bears witness when Dan and Drago face Masquerade and his Hydranoid, now evolved into Dual Hydranoid, and lose. With the Doom Card in play, this meant Drago would be banished to the Doom Dimension, but Dan goes after him, refusing to be separated from his partner, leading to Dan being trapped in the Doom Dimension as well. Upset over losing Dan, Runo soon learns of Masquerade then challenging Shun to a Brawl. After telling Mrs. Kuso that Dan would be home soon, Runo joins Shun, Marucho, and Julie with facing Masquerade together, and losing intentionally to be sent to the Doom Dimension as well, unaware that Mrs. Kuso followed her and witnessed the start and end of the Brawl, and learned from Masquerade of Runo and the other Brawlers' fate.

After reuniting with Dan and Drago, the Brawlers are confronted by the Six Legendary Soldiers of Vestroia, who offer a deal to the Brawlers: Defeat their respective Legendary Soldier in a Brawl, and if all the Brawlers win, they and all the Bakugan banished to the Doom Dimension will be returned to Earth. Lose, and they will be stuck in the Doom Dimension for the foreseeable future. The Brawlers accept the deal, and Runo faces the Haos Legendary Soldier, Lars Lion, who uses an illusion of a younger Dan to battle Runo with as part of Runo's test. During the Brawl, when Tigrerra finds herself losing to Lars Lion and her special ability, Runo finally sees the error of her flaw that was causing her to lose, and by overcoming it, she allows Tigrerra to evolve into Blade Tigrerra, defeating Lars Lion, who congratulates Runo on her victory, before once the other Brawlers have won their battles, the Legendary Soldiers keep their promise, and send the Brawlers and all the Bakugan in the Doom Dimension home to Earth.

Back home, Runo learns that Dan must defeat the Brawlers and their evolved partners to get Drago to evolve again, and agrees to have Blade Tigrerra battle Dan. Once Dan defeats the other Brawlers and Drago evolves into Ultimate Dragonoid, Masquerade comes calling again to challenge Joe and Wavern for the Infinity Core. Dan decides to brawl in Joe's place, and the resulting clash between Drago and the newly-evolved Alpha Hydranoid proves destructive to the surrounding stadium until Drago finally proves victorious in defeating Alpha Hydranoid. At that point, Masquerade reveals himself to have been Alice all along, with Hal-G revealing that when Alice and her grandfather, Dr. Michael Gehabich, were infected with Silent Core energy that seeped into his lab through his Dimensional Gateway when Naga went after the Silent Core, while Michael became Hal-G, Alice became Masquerade, with no memory of her actions she committed as Masquerade whenever she transformed back and forth between Masquerade and herself. Guilty over her crimes she committed as her evil alter-ego, Alice left the Brawlers and vanished from public view, much to Runo's heartbreak. Nevertheless, when a portal between Earth and Vestroia opens in the Pacific Ocean, seeing their chance for retribution on Naga, Runo joins the other Brawlers with heading into the portal to travel to Vestroia, but not before first telling her parents and those of the other Battle Brawlers of their intentions. Despite initial shock from the Makimotos and Shun's grandfather, they accept what must be done, and allow the Brawlers to head on their mission.

Once in Vestroia, they find the six attributes having fused into hybrid worlds. After Shun and Marucho remain behind to hold off Tayghen and Hairadee, Runo and Julie deal with Tricloid and Rabeeder while Dan and Drago head to deal with Centorrior and Druman. By the time Runo, Marucho, Julie, and Shun reunite with Dan, they find he was able to defeat the Pyrus/Darkus hybrids with help from Alice and Alpha Hydranoid, as a final brawl from Masquerade before he left Alice's body for good and entrusted Alpha Hydranoid to her. Seeing Alice, Runo gives her a hug and cries her heart out, having been worried sick about her ever since she ran away out of guilt for her actions she committed as Masquerade, leaving Alice happy to see how much Runo had been worried about her and shedding a happy tear before formally apologizing to the other Brawlers and then revealing that Alpha Hydranoid is her guardian Bakugan now. With Alice as their Darkus Brawler, the Battle Brawlers are ready to face Naga, only to find he lured them into a trap, sealing the portal to Vestroia while he and his hybrid generals went to Earth to hunt down Wavern. Luckily, Wavern is able to provide a way for the Brawlers to return to Earth themselves just in time to help as Wavern has surrounded Wardington with a forcefield to protect it and the civilians from Naga's forces. Once regrouped with Wavern and Joe, upon seeing that three of Naga's hybrids are approaching the city, Alice, Julie, and Marucho go after them while Runo stays with Shun and Dan to keep an eye on Wavern. Later, Runo assists Dan against Centorrior and Druman, only to find that Alice had led Hal-G and Naga right to her when she mistook Hal-G for her grandfather and thought he had fought off Hal-G for the moment and needed Wavern's help to be purged of Hal-G completely. Though Centorrior and Druman try to prevent the Brawlers from going to Wavern's aid, they are soon destroyed, and Drago is forced to kill Wavern and absorb the Infinity Core himself to protect it from Naga, evolving into Infinity Dragonoid in the process. Despite being on even terms with Naga, and managing to pin him down, Drago is unable to finish him off when Hal-G sends in Naga's elite 5th Paladin to protect him. Luckily for Dan and Drago, Runo and the other Brawlers come to their aid and easily take down the 5th Paladin, yet Naga recovers, and makes it clear he's not leaving without the Infinity Core. Deciding to give it to him, Drago has Dan activate his ultimate ability, Dextra Attack, and as Drago unleashes it against Naga, he realizes he bit off more than he could chew, and Naga pleads for mercy, but doesn't get any, as with the Brawlers shouting in unison, Drago, Tigrerra, and the other guardian Bakugan unleash their power on Naga, resulting in his body disintegrating, before being reduced to a small ball of rainbow light that then explodes powerfully, ending Naga's life once and for all, banishing his spirit to the Doom Dimension for eternity, and freeing the Silent Core, which Drago then absorbs himself, now having possession of both cores within him. Dr. Michael then resurfaces, freed of Hal-G with Naga's death, but then reveals that the Bakugan have to return home to Vestroia to see to its restoration. With heavy hearts, Runo and the other Brawlers say goodbye to their guardian Bakugan before throwing them one last time to return home under Drago's leadership, with the rest of the Bakugan on Earth following shortly thereafter.

As things settle down, some time later, Dan heads out to go on a date with Runo, but when he meets up with her and sees her appearance, his disrespectful remarks earn him an angry pound on the head from an irate Runo before she storms off, but soon returns, having calmed down, to still go on her date with Dan, indicating them as a couple from here on out.

Bakugan New Vestroia

Some time after the events with Naga, Dan, Shun, and Marucho had gone to New Vestroia to protect it from an invasion by the Vexos, humans from the planet Vestal that were planning on colonizing New Vestroia. After Dan, Shun, and Marucho meet up with Mira, Ace, and Baron, Vestals who are part of the Bakugan Brawlers Resistance, they manage to take out the first of the Vexos' devices that were keeping the Bakugan in their sphere form at the already colonized Alpha City. Back on Earth, Runo is growing increasing frustrated with how Dan and the others went to New Vestroia without her, finally deciding she's going after them. Joined by Julie, they head to Moscow to meet up with Alice and Dr. Michael, but Alice's grandfather explains that his Dimensional Gateway is not perfected yet for safe travel to New Vestroia. Despite the condition of the Gateway, Runo still has Julie activate it so she can go to New Vestroia, but as Dr. Michael forewarned, because of the imperfections, Runo appears only as a ghost in New Vestroia, able to talk to Dan and the others, but not physically touch them. Dr. Michael then explains about the portal back to his lab that Runo needs to reach to return to Earth and corporeal form before it is too late and she possibly ceases to exist. With Dan and the Resistance's help, Runo makes it and returns safely home and regains her physical form, but finds she was followed by members of the Vexos in Spectra, Gus, and Lync. Luckily, Dan and other members of the Resistance had followed them, and during a Brawl with Spectra, he takes Runo hostage, but after revealing he wants to destroy the Vexos, he releases Runo unharmed as a showing of goodwill to Dan. Nevertheless, Alice arrives thanks to her teleportation card left over from Masquerade, and transports the Vexos back to her grandfather's lab to be sent back to New Vestroia before the Gateway overloads and needs to be repaired before it can be used again. Despite being cut off from Shun, Marucho, and Ace, Dan, Mira, and Baron make the best of it as Dan and the original Brawlers decide to show Mira and Baron all that Earth has to offer until they can go to back to New Vestroia to stop the Vexos.

After some time, Dr. Michael is able to perfect his Dimensinal Gateway to allow Dan, Mira, and Baron to return to New Vestroia, but when he explains that it only allows those with a gauntlet to enter, Runo initially shows hostility at being left behind on Earth and yells at Dan not to come back, but he assures her he'll return before he and his Vestal allies head through to help Shun, Marucho, and Ace against Prince Hydron and the Vexos. Some time later, Dan, Shun, and Marucho return from New Vestroia after freeing it from the Vexos and being colonized, and Runo is reunited with Blade Tigrerra.

However, Hydron's father, King Zenoheld, upset that the colonization of New Vestroia failed, has the Bakugan Termination System made to wipe out the Bakugan in retaliation. When the Six Legendary Soldiers give up their lives to entrust the attribute energy to the Bakugan Brawlers Resistance, the gang soon take refuge in Marucho's house where he's built a device to hide the signatures of the attribute energy from the Vexos. Nonetheless, after an argument with Dan, Runo storms out with Mira following her, and they are soon ambushed by Mylene and Lync. Despite Wilda and Tigrerra's best efforts, they are defeated and the Subterra attribute energy is taken.

Runo continues to help Dan and the others as they deal with the Vexos and King Zenoheld until Drago is able to stop the BT System himself, and later the Vexos fall apart due to infighting and soon all are banished to an alternate dimension save for Zenoheld and Hydron, who then perish when the Alternative that Zenoheld unleashed as his ultimate weapon self-destructs with Zenoheld going down with it thanks to the sacrifice of his own son, Hydron, who made certain his father would never threaten another Bakugan, Vestal, or human soul ever again.

Bakugan Mechtanium Surge

After the events with the Vexos, Runo continued to be a pillar of support to Dan alongside Julie when the Mechtogan begin to appear, along with the likes of the Nonet Bakugan and Mechtavius Destroyer. Working together with Mira and Julie, Runo attempted to aid Dan, Marucho, and Shun against the Nonets and Mechtavius Destroyer, but soon Dan and the others are sent to the Doom Dimension again, possibly with no way back this time. In the meantime, Mechtavius Destroyer, with the Battle Brawlers out of his way, begins his genocidal rampage against humanity and Bakugan alike, with his first stop being Bakugan City on Earth, reducing it to a barren crater with a single attack, killing Runo, Julie, Mira, and Kato in the process, before then going after Tigrerra and the other guardian Bakugan on New Vestroia, killing them as well, before then planning on going after the rest of the Battle Brawlers' allies on Vestal, Neathia, and Gundalia as well, meaning Fabia, Ace, Baron, Nurzak, Spectra, and the rest would be next on Mechtavius Destroyer's hitlist.

However, the surviving Nonets in Betadron and Worton provide a way for Dan, Gunz, Marucho, and Shun to escape the Doom Dimension via the Current of Time, sacrificing themselves to ensure the Brawlers could reach Mechtavius Destroyer in time to prevent the annihilation of Bakugan City and beyond and prevent the deaths of Runo, Tigrerra, Julie, Gorem, Mira, Kato, and the rest in the process. They succeed, and Drago and Dan are able to slay Mechtavius Destroyer once and for all, the combined genocidal rogue Mechtogan screaming in anguish and agony as they are obliterated by Dragonoid Destroyer, never to threaten the life of a Bakugan or human soul ever again. After that, Runo and the others hold a party for Dan, but he and Drago, with a little help from Kato, depart for parts unknown, deciding to retire from Bakugan and see how the others fare without them as the top-ranked Brawler from here on out.
