Gianna has classic good looks. Dark-haired, blue eyed, she doesn't really stand out amongst the beauties of Arx, save for her voice. Her voice is powerful and will be long past when her looks have faded. Her expression tends to be impassive and, to be honest, not entirely friendly. Cool. Reserved. Just a hint of steely determination in her eyes. Gianna moves with confidence, as though her rank is higher than it actually is.
Gianna has a sharp blade and a sharp tongue. Both are employed in her defense. She is not a soft-hearted girl; she knows what she wants and she will do what she needs to do to get it. Ruthless? Maybe. Gianna comes across as cool, maybe even aloof; that just means the rare displays of charm or emotion are all the more puissant. Even when she's smiling, she's just a little guarded.
Gianna doesn't speak much about where she's from. Refuses to, really. She sounds and looks Lycene, so that's probably a safe bet. If she has any brothers or sisters, she hasn't said. If her parents are still alive, she hasn't said. If she has any children, she hasn't said.
While she arrived in Arx, she spent time playing songs and singing in various inns, taverns, and other public places where passersby might spare a little coin. Gianna quickly made a name for herself by becoming a Whisper and then founding the Bard's College, a social organization for singers, musicians, those hoping to better their musical skills, and supporters of such artists.
Her rough edges (mostly) smoothed over, Gianna continues to strive for recognition and riches. Gianna has an eye for shiny things, and is unapologetic about her plans to obtain them.
