Lera (original version: Dora) is a recurring character in the Metal Saga, first appearing in Beyblade: Metal Masters. She is a member of the Russian team, Team Lovushka. She dreams of going to space along with her teammates Aleksei and Nowaguma. Her Beyblade is Rock Scorpio T125JB.
Lera is a short girl with fuchsia rose hair tied into two ponytails, which move according to her mood; kind of like a dog with their ears. Her eyes are turquoise.
Like her teammates, she wears a spacesuit. Hers is peach in color.
She is a strong-minded Ukrainian who does not hesitate to show her irritation. Oddly, her two ponytails move according to her mood, and Madoka has mimicked this action, too at one point. She appears bratty and is angered easily, especially when she loses at something. Lera translates Nowaguma when his voice is muffled by his suit. She appears to be the only person who can understand him clearly, so one can assume they know each other well.
More than anything, Lera is serious about what she does at the space research center - while she has a bad conscience for cheating at the World Championship, she is willing to do all it takes to go to space. When somebody speaks about this dream lightheartedly, she is immediately offended.
Beyblade: Metal Masters
Lera appears in The Wintry Land of Russia, where she and her team meet the Gan Gan Galaxy. She battles against Masamune and stands her ground to give Aleksei enough time to copy information from Madoka's computer.
Lera next appears in How Grand! The Cage Match!, to witness the match between Nowaguma and Gingka. After Nowaguma's loss she comforts him. She then supports Aleksei in his battle against Yu, she stands up for Aleksei when Madoka calls him a cheat, saying that both of them were fighting in the same condition. However, she doesn't get to battle as both of her teammates lose.
Although, the team loses the match and is eliminated from the tournament, they receive sponsors to fund their space program.
