Barnette Orangello is one of the many Dread pilot co-leaders under Meia's command on the Nirvana, and is ranked higher than Dita. It is not really clear whether Barnette is Jura's girlfriend or best friend, Jura is extremely affectionate with her, but by season 2 it's clear Jura acts that way with anyone she likes. Unlike the three other Dread pilots featured in the series (Dita, Meia, and Jura), her Dread cannot combine with Hibiki's Vanguard, due to her position when the Paeksys altered the Dreads.
She displays one of the most aggressive behaviors, in terms of both her fighting style and her attitude toward the men, who have been integrated into the Nirvana's crew (probably more so than Meia).She has a very impressive firearms collection (including a Calico pistol, a Steyr AUG, and a Franchi SPAS-12 shotgun) and is also quite the cook.
During the second season, she voluntarily replaced Gascogne to lead the Registry system, after a sortie against a Harvester mothership. She even took over Gascogne's place as Hibiki's big sister type.
