Videos with Gina

Gina (born Yevgeny and also known as Patient #11) is a trait positive girl and older sister to Bree. She was born in Siberian Russia, near Lake Baikal. She and Bree were bought from their mother by Dr. William Porter.

The Hart Study

Gina was first seen on VHS tapes left for Jonas outside of his motel room. She was in isolation in a hospital, where she was being treated by Dr. Calvin Hart. Though she was not one of the genetically-altered trait positive girls that Dr. Hart was trying to keep alive, she was the control for the Hart Study.

Even though it was revealed that Dr. Hart wasn't telling the full truth, it's still clear that Gina was once afflicted with an ailment that caused her difficulty to breathe. She often had coughing fits, and once even stopped breathing altogether. To help with the situation, Dr. Hart gave her a green pill, which helped slightly, although side effects did include diarrhea, chills and vomiting. In Shocking Discovery, Gina seemed to have developed a rash on her upper back, similar to the one Emma got in Eat Pie.

Much of Gina's past continues to remain a mystery, partly because it's been revealed that Gina's memory has been scrambled due to all the experiments that the Hart Study did to her.

Her Rescue

While Dr. Hart claimed that Gina died at the age of fifteen, it was revealed in the episode KIDNAPPED! that Gina is very much alive, shown getting out of Lucy's car and running toward Dr. Hart. She had been, in fact, held captive by Dr. William Porter. An Elder of the Order, Dr. Porter had every intention to use Gina in an upcoming Ceremony, unless Dr. Hart could provide another trait positive girl. His study was a failure, as he was unable to produce a genetically-altered trait positive girl. This compelled him to make a deal with the Order: Emma's life for Gina's.

When Daniel came to save Emma from Dr. William Porter's abandoned hospital, Daniel took Gina instead of Emma, having heard from Dr. Hart that he was not going to go through with the Ceremony, and would instead sacrifice himself to save Emma.

Teaming Up with the TAAG

After the events of the Ceremony, Gina left with the others and lived with them in the rented cabin. Although she didn't seem to want to get involved too much, even going so far to build a bench just to get away from the others, it was later revealed that, she was the one who gave Emma money to buy a train ticket to see her parents.

Gina has also developed a rocky relationship with Sarah as a result that Sarah has occasionally come to the conclusion that Gina may have feelings for Daniel and/or vice-versa. Sarah later violated Gina's privacy by posting her torn up pictures on the forum and asking fans if they could put the pieces back together. Though Sarah claimed innocence, based on the fact that the drawings were mostly of fruit and flowers, the TAAG soon discovered that Gina also drew Bree's mother. Unfortunately, Gina's scrambled memory continued to hide any other information about the wayward parent.

After the group saw a threatening video from Dr. William Porter's Shadow, Gina mysteriously disappeared. When Daniel and Jonas went looking for her, they found her at Bree's old house. Gina said that she could remember coming to that house to play when she was a child. After this, Gina decided she wanted to search for Bree's mom to find answers, telling us she would be in chat to discuss it. When all was discussed by TAAG, they split into two groups; Gina with Jonas and Jennie who were planning to hunt for Bree's mom, and Daniel and Sarah who refused and decided to stay behind.

While Jonas and Jennie got ready to find Bree's mom, Daniel and Sarah talked in the living room. Gina began to feel guilty for splitting TAAG up.

The Search for Bree's Mom

A few days later, TAAG spent some time together At the Beach, where Jonas and Daniel talked. They decided not to split up and to come up with a solid plan to find Bree's mom before heading out.

Personality

In the seven year old VHS tapes, it was clear that Gina enjoyed music, and was often heard to hum. She had a particular interest for the song "Piano Man" by Billy Joel, and became very excited when she heard she was going to be able to sneak out of the hospital and go to a Billy Joel and Elton John concert. It remains unclear whether or not Gina was able to go to that concert.

After meeting Jonas, Dr. Hart also expressed that for the first 13 years of her life, Gina was very happy and strong, but by the (apparent) end, she got tired of being "locked up like a lab rat."

Gina has been revealed to be very artistic. Since joining with the TAAG, Gina has shown her talents at wood-working as well. In the video “Playing With Wood”, Gina built a fine bench by hand. She also has a knack for drawing, which she says helps her to make sense of her scrambled memories.

Etymology

Though it's the masculine form of the name, Dr. Hart revealed in his last video that Gina's original name was once Yevgeny. (The feminine form is Yevgeniya). In either case, the name is a Russian form of the name Eugene/Eugenia. This name comes from the Greek roots for "well born." [1] (A suitable name for a trait positive girl.)
