ュリアーナ transliterates from "Yuliana," an English transliteration of the Russian and Bulgarian form of "Juliana," deriving from either the Greek ιουλος ioulos Speaker (downy-bearded). Or from the Roman god Jupiter.

This character is named "Claudia" in the non-English anime dubs.[14][15][16][17]

Yuliana, a lower-ranking double-digit (No. 43), is the second warrior to be killed in the US anime version of Battle of the North.[20]


Early life unknown.

Battle of the NorthEdit

Member of the battle group in Pieta during the Battle of the North. Assigned to Team Undine: Undine (No. 11), Deneve (No. 15), Zelda (No. 24) and Claudia (No. 36).[21]

During initial meeting of the battle group, Matilda's dialog in the manga given to Yuliana in the anime.[22]

Engagement IEdit

During the first engagement with the three scouts, the Armadillo awakened decimates Team Flora. Team Undine reinforces Team Flora. Armadillo wounds Yuliana with an extensible quill. Undine orders the wounded to retreat.[23]

Deneve and Undine sever Armadillo's head. When the head tries to escape, it forces Juliana and Wendy to exceed their Yoma power limit. But Flora and Clare cut it to pieces before Juliana and Wendy awaken.[24]

Engagement IIEdit

Manga and anime diverge here.


Yuliana appears in Yuma's flashback. In the banquet hall of the Eastern Inn, Miria holds a meeting with the battle group. She tells everyone to take a half dose of suppressant. If rendered unconscious during combat, a warrior will radiate no aura, making her appear dead to both the Northern Army and Organization.[25]

The Northern Army invades Pieta.[26] Yuliana does not appear in second battle.

Yuliana's sword appears in a graveyard.[27]


As Team Undine waits on a roof, a winged awakened being bursts through from the attic, killing Yuliana. The Japanese,[28] German,[29] French[30] and Italian[31] dubs switch Yuliana's name with Claudia's. The FUNimation English dub switches back to "Yuliana" in conformance with the manga.[32]

All manga translations use "Yuliana" or equivalent, not "Claudia," for the name of this character.
