Lana was Gohan's first true love. She was the most popular student at Orange Star High School mainly because of her good looks, and was an active member of the honor society. She was admired from afar by Gohan for weeks before they actually began their friendship. Lana lived in Satan City for most of her life, though unlike most of the inhabitants, she does not seem to worship or think much of Mr. Satan.
In the beginning of their relationship, Gohan was afraid that Lana would leave him should she ever find out about his Saiyan heritage, though she eventually finds out when Krillin accidentally mentions it. To his great surprise, she is more upset that he'd keep a secret from her, though she later finds it in her heart to forgive him.
