History: (Nightstalkers#6 (fb) - BTS) - Georgianna got older and since her husband's death nothing seemed okay. She tried to better her life by buying a monkey's paw that was supposed to give her three wishes, but it didn't work.
(Nightstalkers#6) - The Nightstalkers got Georgianna her money back from the con Svengali. Blade acted hostile towards her because she tried to buy magical items and Hanniball apologized for Blade's behavior. Hanniball offered her a drink to ease her pain before he gave her their bill. Georgianna thanked the Nightstalkers for their help and left.
Some time later Georgianna entered on her search for some luck a shop named Magickal Brew. There she was threatened by the cult leader Shiv, who couldn't get what he wanted from the shop owner. Once again Georgianna got help from the Nightstalkers, who crashed through the window and saved her. After the situation was clear King returned into the shop and asked Georgianna if she was okay. She was okay and offered him to call her by her first name. Hanniball stayed with her afterwards to comfort her.
(Nightstalkers#11) - Georgianna went with Hanniball to a cemetery to hear out his feelings. She listened to his ravings about vampires and how he was jealous of normal people, who could die. She told him that he was probably a vampire for a reason and reminded him that she would be dead if the Nightstalkers hadn't saved her from Shiv. Hanniball then told her how Blade cut off his head and showed her how the sun burnt him. Georgianna was shocked, stumbled backwards and cut her hand on the gravestone Hanniball had smashed a minute ago. She offered him her blood, but Hanniball didn't want and just wanted to talk a little longer with her. Hanniball then took his scarf to bandage her hand.
(Nightstalkers#18 - BTS) - Georgianna came to the funeral of her good friend Hanniball King and his colleague Frank Drake.
