At a young age, Galena was taught a lesson to not be hasty and sloppy when her mother sent her to fetch water from a well with a special water jug, an heirloom of the family. The land was wet and she rushed because she wanted to attend her grandfather Otue's stories in Thunder Bluff. She fell and broke the jug. From now on, she was always careful. When she showed her druidic abilities and left Mulgore to join the Circle. Later, a Cenarion Circle acolyte in Feralas took her as an apprentice. When Master Thal'darah gave word that he is looking for a new apprentice, Galena quickly joined him in Thal'darah Overlook in Stonetalon Mountains, becoming the only tauren in the outpost.
At some point after the Cataclysm, Aramar Thorne and his friends arrived to the outpost. Galena quickly greeted them and became friends with Aram's dryad companion, Taryndrella. Aram wanted to severe the bond between him and the dryad and Thal'darah agreed and asked Galena to assist him in the ritual. She and Drella then harvested some Wild Steelbloom for the ritual in which she assisted her master directly, which, however, went without success. Later, she noticed that Aram and Drella are gone. She used acorns and her druidic magic to learn their location. She magicked them in the north. Quickly grabbing stuff that she needed, the tauren told Aiyell that she would return shortly once she finds an item she had dropped in the woods.
