Giana is a young teenager Italian girl that can switch between her two forms. She is shown to be playful and courageous. She travelled the Dream World to get back her diamonds and saving her sister Maria from Gurglewocky. In the Dream World, she likes to annoy owls by doing tricks with her twist ability, even if she still loves them and find them cute. She also loves collecting diamonds and tries to collect as many as possible. In the real world, she likes spending her time by playing with her plushes, enjoying her diamond necklace and even sleeping in class. But despite these, she's weak. She can't protect herself from her father and the bullies.

Giana can transform to her Punk persona only in the Dream World, with her twist ability or the Fire Wheel power-up. As Punk Giana, she is very mocking and abusive towards enemies, doesn't fool herself and just wants to smash things with her Fire Dash. She wishes to beat the kids that bullied her and her teacher that humiliated her in front of her class. Even as Punk, she cares about Maria.


Giana has several abilities:

  • Twist : Can be cute or punk, Giana can twist her dream. Sceneries changes appearance and platforms moves. The enemies also changes.
