Gigi Edgley’s scamming, sparky sexpot.
A monochrome fizzbomb of scamming and seduction, Chiana became a part of the Farscape furniture when a Nebari transport in trouble was picked up by Moya. Imprisoned for behaving and speaking in inappropriate ways, she was on her way to be mentally cleansed to remove her wayward tendencies.
She remained on Moya, becoming an integral member of the crew. At first her snurching (read theiving) ways, habitual dishonesty and tendency to regard sex simply as an enjoyable contact sport just drove everyone to distraction.
Over time she’s slowly built up warm relationships with Moya’s crew. Except late arrival Jool, of course, who she still can’t stand. It’s because of her real friendships with the crew that they can trust her now, not because her con-man character has changed.
She and D’Argo struck up a highly charged sexual relationship during the second season, which ended when Chiana herself shot it down in flames by sleeping with D’Argo’s son Jothee.
Since then, things have got much stranger for her. Possessed by an alien life-form, and now affilicted with visions that seem to accurately foretell the future, Chiana’s no longer so certain of herself.
