Tina is the identical twin sister of Gina. They are new arrivals in the shoe cupboard, having been there only a week before our story starts. Tina's ribbons are normally neatly wrapped around her and she runs her life in a disciplined, stylish way. If she was human, she'd be the archetypically Italian girl, who loves to shop and make herself pretty. She's also a dyed-in-the-silk snob.
Under her immaculate veneer though, is a shy creature who finds it hard to make friends and hides behind her more adventurous and emotional sister Gina. Tina is a 'head-person' while Gina operates from her heart. Tina sees the subtleties of the world and situations where Gina shoots from the hip and doesn’t think things through very carefully.
Although Tina is introverted she has a strong sense of self and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. She's a bit of a lounge lizard when she isn’t diligently practising her exercises at the barre and loves paging through ballet books left lying around by The Boss.
