This article is about Marinette's paternal grandmother. You may be looking for Marinette's maternal grandmother.

Gina Dupain[1] is Marinette's paternal grandmother and Tom Dupain's mother.[2] In "Befana", after she mistakenly concludes that Marinette no longer wants to spend time with her, she is akumatized by Hawk Moth into Befana, a candy-themed supervillain.[3][4]

Appearance

Physical appearance

Gina is at a regular height with short silver (nearly white) hair and dark green eyes.

Civilian attire

She wears glasses with tan rims, and she wears a black leather jacket with an upward collar and silver flat studs on the shoulders. She also has black fingerless driving gloves with holes around the knuckles and on the back of her palm, a watch with a tan strap, red jeans, and a black belt.

When she is riding her motorcycle, she wears a red motorcycle helmet with black edges and gray comfort liner.

As Befana

Befana has reddish-brown eyes, pale green skin, and long, brushed-back hot pink hair with two white streaks. She wears a black mask with red edges on the sides of the face. Her outfit is a black short-sleeved bodysuit with jagged pink edges to the arm and leg sleeves, a large jagged pink-tipped collar above a regular black collar, and a pink and black bow resembling a wrapped candy on the chest. She wears black fingerless driving gloves, spiked black cuffs, black shoes, and two thin black belts around her hips. One belt has a circular red-orange pouch attached to it, and it has a black symbol on it based on their bow. For a weapon, she holds a black gun-like object with a dark gray horn-like barrel, a jagged red stripe around the barrel, a blue rectangle on each side, and a semi-cube end of the handle with colorful objects inside.

Personality

Gina is a very sweet, charming and a caring person. She deeply cares for her family, especially with her son, Tom, her daughter in law, Sabine and her granddaughter, Marinette. As seen in "Befana", Gina is also a bit strict, energetic, enthusiastic and quite ambitious. She is also kind, benevolent and understanding as she wanted Marinette to have a great birthday and spend a lot of quality time with her too. Despite this, she can be forgetful and have a hard time adjusting to changes, as she didn't realize that Marinette was no longer a child and liked new things.

As Befana, she is more cruel, impatient and very demanding. She was ardent to render retribution on Marinette for not having any desire and rejecting to invest time with her. She's additionally quite stubborn and facetious, particularly when she begins singing her song to her victims. While aggressive and cruel, she still acknowledges and is pleased by acts of kindness and selflessness. She is also very prestigious when it comes to manners, even forcing Hawk Moth to ask nicely before he gives her orders.

Abilities

As a civilian

Gina is very experienced with riding her motorcycle.

As Befana

Befana can fly with the help of her akumatized motorcycle. She can also either turn people into coal statues or to fairy minions via her pistol and order them to do her bidding. However, Befana apparently can not touch her own candies or she will turn into a coal statue as shown when Ladybug uses her candies against her.
