Genevieve, Commander of the Grey, is one of the main characters in the Dragon Age prequel novel The Calling, by David Gaider. Formidable but harrowed fighter with a big-arse sword, nerves of steel and a unhealthy intensity. As of April of 2021, added photorealistic portraits.

The space misandrist enemy of Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, by golly ! Who was a goofy, not-highbrow parody of Filipina national super-heroine Darna.
