“Mae and Boey seem excited to have left the Priory to travel, but to be honest, I’m more than a little afraid. I’ve always been the type to stay home and read rather than go on adventures. Guess I’d rather write a story about an epic quest than be on one myself. Though I imagine being left out would feel even worse…”
Serving at the priory on Novis, Genny's mother was born there, but she hated the life on the island and departed for the royal capital for several years before returning with her as a newborn, and while her father was never known, it seems he was a nobleman with a wife and children. Afterwards, her mother left her behind at the priory and disappeared, with Genny carrying only a pendant that her mother received from her father. She would spend several years in the Priory, becoming acquainted with fellow children Celica, Boey, and Mae.
When Celica decides to go on a journey to the Temple of Mila to see why Zofia has lost its influence from Mila, Genny requests to join Celica, pledging her healing skills to her cause. After the war, Genny would go on to marry, though her spouse's identity is unknown.
Genny and Jenny are diminutives of the name Jennifer, a Cornish form of Guinivere adopted into the English language during the 20th century. It may mean "white enchantress" or "the fair one".
In Heroes and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Genny shares her English voice actress, Eden Riegel (credited as Claudia Lenz), with Awakening's Sumia and Nah.
In Katsuyuki Ozaki's novelization, Genny develops feelings for Saber. In her ending, she marries a man who no one would have expect. It's rumored that this man could be Saber, but this wasn't confirmed.
