Gala is a human cleric mentioned in Might and Magic Book One: The Secret of the Inner Sanctum. There is a statue dedicated to her in Sorpigal, with an inscription that reads: "In honor of Gala... for her brave attempt to work with the savages of the Volcanic Isles".
When the party encounters the Volcano god in his lair, they can ask him for a riddle. He asks them: "Who was brave yet failed?" If they answer "Gala", he will give them a key card that can be used to open the Inner Sanctum.
