As a tiny hellspawn child, I met Johnny Gambino, who was then an associate of my hotel-owning aunt's (who had custody of me). They were two members of a society conspiring to overthrow other businesses, all so their own enterprises could prosper.
My aunt and I didn't get along, and this mutual dislike deepened to the point where, as a teenager, I found myself fleeing to the Isle de Gambino, to retreat into the haven of Johnny Gambino's company. As I passed into adulthood, my idolization of the man turned into admiration and devotion, and a mostly long-distanced romance started between us.
However, my aunt, growing paranoid in old age, no longer trusted Gambino and upon learning of our love, cast me out of the family. At this time, I learned Johnny was involved with more than one other intimate acquaintance and no longer sure of his sincerity, I decided to make my own way, refusing his offers of help. I took on two jobs and eventually was initiated into a syndicate, and as I created my own fortune, more and more time lapsed between the intervals in which I saw Johnny.
G Corp, the zombie outbreak, the destruction of Gambino's mansion, Gino's disappearance and return and then kidnapping at the hands of the Von Helsons--all this passed without my knowing of them. It was not until I'd moved and settled in Aekea, opening my own hotel, that Johnny came to me again, on my 22nd birthday, and we had a few weeks together as his mansion was rebuilt, this time with a tower.
When the April First assasination took place, I was no more aware of what was going on than any other Gaian. For a year I waited, tormented by impersonators of both Johnny and Gino, along with rumors started by delusional past loves of both, claiming both Gambinos were alive and with these lie-mongers. I watched in confusion as Gino seemingly returned, his behavior more and more erratic, then was overjoyed to see Johnny Gambino brought back.
(During Gambino's absence, I met and fell in love with another Gambino supporter, Tobias Geminasu, who understood my devotion and while the two of us married on July First, consented to my romance with Gambino continuing.)
Once more Gambino returned to me, and a long song and dance of sheer angst is back in cycle. He visits me then ignores me, demands I stay away from my husband for weeks at a time, continues to hold onto his other lovers, and recently had my DNA stolen and put into a Shadow Sprite beastie, saddling me with a child (of sorts) I never asked for or wanted. (I wound up exocising said "child's" soul into that of my alien baby, Sergio, so for a while it wasn't a problem, but I've recently and inexplicably unexorcised him, so...two kids again. Damn.) For all the drama, however, I still adore Gaia's most powerful man.
