Whisp is a 2013-introduced and fiction-only character. She is the made-alive shadow of Gigi Grant, created from a wish for a friend to keep her company by one of finders. For a long time, she was known as the Shadow Genie, but following a wish to turn her into a true genie, she has lost the shadow aspect. Whisp and Gigi have a difficult history, but ever since Whisp became a true genie and has taken over Gigi's duties, getting the spotlight she's always wanted, they've been working on repairing their sisterhood. Whisp is an experienced manipulator and both merciless and creative in obtaining her goals, but she's trying to reform.

Whisp is voiced in English by Jonquil Goode.
Whisp started out as the literal shadow of Gigi Grant. She was raised to life during an eclipse by a wish made by one of Gigi's finders who, on advice of the Brothers Grimm, wished for her a permanent friend. Gigi and Whisp were very good friends, sisters even, at first, while they were alone in the lantern, but every time the lamp was found, Whisp was left alone. Whisp did not like being ignored and especially didn't like being left behind while Gigi made new friends. Seeking revenge, she learned that she was not bound by the rules of genies. She started to follow Gigi on her adventures, mesmerizing finder's to serve her own needs of attention and retribution. When the Brothers Grimm found out about this, they created a magical mirror that would cancel the effects of Whisp's whispering powers. Gigi used the mirror to save Fawn and thwart Whisp's grab at domination, but the mirror broke into thirteen shards as a result. Whisp took the pieces and hid them all over within the lamp, ensuring that next time she'd succeed. Gigi's lamp was found centuries later by Howleen Wolf in boonighted States of Scaremerica and Whisp got straight to work. The one thing she hadn't counted on were Howleen's sister and friends, who put the mirror back together and got Howleen out of her influence. However, Howleen, being a younger sister too, felt sympathy for Whisp and as her last wish freed Gigi from the lantern and made Whisp it's new host, allowing her to make new friends the same way Gigi could before. Whisp gratefully took the spotlight she always wanted.
By Gigi's own words, Whisp is "clever, mischievous and funny, and bursting with new ideas". She is, however, also the jealous type and possesses an amount of magic of her own. Whisp's has several abilities unique to her; one shadow-based and the other whisper-based. As a shadow-brought-to-life, Whisp can live unseen among the shadows. Additionally, during eclipses, she would be solid even outside the lamp and become much more powerful than usual. He whisper powers are a combination of manipulation that flow into mind control. Once someone opens to the suggestions she whispers to them, it is not long before Whisp can hijack their will and order them directly.
Whisp has two appearances, her shadow genie appearance and her lamp genie appearance. As a shadow genie, her hair is dark purple and is in a high ponytail, similar to Gigi's. Her skin is dark lavender. Her makeup consists of purple and dark purple eyeshadow and dark purple lipstick. Her eyes are pink. Her earrings are shaped like lightning bolts. She has a purple scorpion-like tattoo on her neck, a star, a moon, and a circle moving down along her right cheek, three circles moving up from her right brow, another tattoo on her right hand, and another going down her left arm. Her shirt is dark purple, sapphire blue, and black. She has patterns resembling a scorpion's on her arms. Her torso fades into a genie tail that resembles either smoke or a shadow. Her pants are the same as Gigi's, but the markings are purple, instead of gold.
As a lamp genie, she is a near identical twin image of Gigi with a few differences. Her hair is turquoise with a hot pink stripe and is in a high ponytail, similar to Gigi's. Her skin light pink like Gigi's and she wears the same turquoise eyes shadow with dark pink lipstick. Her eyes are a light green. Her earrings are shaped like gold feathers. Her tattoo markings are exactly like Gigi's now. Her shirt is the same as Gig's except the turquoise and hot pink are switched. Her pants are the same as Gigi's, but they are an off white with a light blue tint opposed to black, and appear to have platinum gold markings opposite her yellow gold ones. She wears the same style of shoes Gigi does, but they are turquoise.
Whisp and Gigi regard each other as sisters, with Whisp being the younger one.
Gigi is Whisp's best and only friend, and Whisp is unhealthily jealous of her.
