Gelda resembles a human female with a fitting body, long hair tied up, and a white battle outfit. As a vampire, she possesses notable fangs that can be seen protruding slightly from her lips even when not speaking.
Gelda had always kept a calm and emotionless expression, never showing any no remorse for her actions. This however, turned out to be a façade, as she did feel guilt for her wrong doings, and wanted to die in order to be free from her vampire life.
3,000 years ago
12 years ago
When the Vampire Clan was somehow released of its seal, they moved in and took over Edinburgh in just one night, annihilating its population or turning them into vampires for their army in Izraf's conquest of Britannia. Inside the castle, Gelda watches a lone Holy Knight from Liones easily killing all of the vampiric Edinburgh Holy Knights and was surprised by his power. Later, Gelda and Ren encountered Meliodas and battled him with her partner believing him to be the very same person who sealed them 3,000 years ago before she killed her in treachery and knew Meliodas wasn't Zeldris. Revealing her story to the Dragon's Sin of Wrath, Gelda wished to die, knowing that there's no purpose left for her in this world anymore since Zeldris was gone and she could only do what vampires do on instinct. Meliodas seemingly granted her wish and killed the vampire in a massive burst, that resulted in a hole 30,000 feet deep in the earth, but Meliodas actually sealed her again.
Some time after the battle with the Demon King, Meliodas releases Gelda from the seal to which she laments how she wished it were Zeldris who would be the one to do it. As she is about to fall into despair Meliodas interrupts her and quickly tells her how Zeldris really wanted to see her and that she was his only hope. She responds that, although they love each other, what he really wanted was to be the new Demon King.
Meliodas confirms this, explaining how Zeldris wanted to be the new Demon King to create a peaceful system so he and Gelda could be together without any repercussions from anyone. Gelda notes that Meliodas is referring to Zeldris in past tense and asks where Zeldris is. Meliodas answers that Zeldris went missing after the battle with the Demon King. After learning this, Gelda leaves to go find him herself stating that she does not care where he is in the world and asks if Elizabeth can understand where she is coming from. Elizabeth questions how she knows her and Gelda tells her there is no one that does not know her name in the magical realm.
Abilities and Equipment
Like her fellow vampires, Gelda is powerful with a two-fold increase when at nighttime. She was shown displaying power over fire.
Gelda was shown to respect Meliodas greatly despite being a Demon and saw him as the only one to understand her pain and for him to administer a coup de grâce on her.
Zeldris is Gelda's lover. Not much is known between the two, but it appears that Zeldris greatly cared for Gelda, as he chose to seal her and the Vampires instead of killing them like he was ordered to. Likewise, Gelda appeared to care about Zeldris as well, but simply wished to die in peace since she could not be with the one she loved any longer. Meliodas, however, chose to seal Gelda once more until the right time would come when she and Zeldris could be together again.
