Full list of appearances
Steerwoman Shelinda (操舵士シェリンダ, Sōdashi Sherinda, 1-49, Gingaman vs. Megaranger) is one of the main antagonist of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman. In all of her appearance she was portrayed by Kei Mizutani.
Shelinda first appeared as the second in command to Zahab; she was the white-haired steerwoman of Balban. She first made an appearance to stop Sambash from destroying her steerwheel.
She led the attack on the Ginga Forest in order to gain the forest energy necessary to revive Daitanix. The plan was foiled by Oogi who turned the forest into stone.
Shelinda later appeared to confront Gingaman for the first time to prevent them from foiling Sambash's final plan. She led a group of Yatottos to confront Ryouma and Hayate on the top of the mountain near Ginga Forest and thrown a Shell Bomb toward them, exploded and throw the latter two off the cliff in the river. When searching for the two men whereabout she heard Hayate's flute voice from all directions. She used her own shell flute to dispel those from false direction only to find Ryouma as Hayate is now far away from her. Furiously, she attack Ryouma and left Yatottos to kill him and left to battle Hayate who had succeeded in stopping Sutoijii's soundwave. Shelinda then attacked him only to lose with a wound on her arm and start her rivalry with him.
In finale she fought one last duel with GingaGreen and she was finally defeated. Only her sword remained which was used by Zahab in his final battle.
Megaranger vs Gingaman
Shelinda was resurrected, along with Zahab, the other Generals and Maijins. She soon learned of the treachery of Hizumina and slashed her, wounding her in the process. She then battled GingaGreen and was defeated once more.
PersonalityShelinda is cruel, selfish and greedy. The mistress of swordmanship, she is a very powerful enemy of Gingaman. When fighting, she will never retreat nor leave the battle until the result is shown. She also attack Hayate even if the latter is suffering from the curse of Gaaragaara, calling that it's "Space Pirate's way". Shelinda never goes easy on anyone, even women or children. Her cruelty is also displayed on her fellow crew members but mostly to Sanbash and Iliess. She never accept anyone order except from Zahab, shown when Daitanix is overheat and she refuse to abandon the battle until the captain ordered her.
Apart from fighting against the Gingaman directly, she also shown to be quite devious, creating an illusion of Hayate's lover to trick him. Overall, all of these eventually proved to be her downfall as she was killed by Hayate in the end.

She can lasso her opponent with energy-whip, swinging them around or fires powerful exploding attack from shell ornaments on both of her wrists.
