Gigi Grant is a 2013-introduced and all-around character. As a genie, Gigi has spent most of her life stuck in her lantern, waiting to be found and summoned to grant wishes. Ever since her shadow sister, Whisp, has taken over her duties, Gigi has been set free to experience life outside of the genie sphere for a while. She is still uneasily getting used to her new environment, in which her wish-granting powers have been greatly diminished, but she's thrilled about the opportunity. Having spent so long making things happen for others, Gigi highly admires people who've made their own wishes come true, like Catty Noir.
Gigi is voiced in English by Jonquil Goode.
In Latin American Spanish, she is voiced by Verania Ortiz.
Personality and Appearance
Gigi emphasizes in her profile that all her time spent in her lantern makes her claustrophobic. Also, in her diary, she shares how lonely and bored she gets when she is trapped inside her lantern. She is still adapting to the real world (outside the lantern) and is shown to be afraid of her surrownding, mostly because she is afraid of the unknown. She is somewhat of a coward because she prefers cowering in the corner to face her problems or agressors (like Toralei or Whisp). Her genie nature also makes her be very loyal and helpful, which sometimes turns against her when people abuse of her power and she is forced to obbey. She is capable of making new friendships easily, but ony when totally confortable with it.
There are conflicting sources on Gigi's area of origin. Some claim it is the Scarehara, others the Far East.
Gigi is a genie with pink skin and freckles across her nose. Her hot pink hair is styled like a scorpion's tail, and has a champagne gold streak running through the left side. Her arms and legs seem to have a scorpion-like segmentation on them.
Howleen Wolf is the one who finds the lantern Gigi resides in. It therefore is possible the two develop a friendship. She finds it a little strange that she is developing a relationship with a 'finder' but enjoys Howleen's personality. She is also friends with her shadow-half Whisp, who once tried to dominate the world. In her bio it states that she is friends with Twyla
Gigi has a scorpion pet called Sultan Sting.
