Who is Gi’ah?
Gi’ah was a specialized agent who was picked by the Skrull invasion leaders to breed Klrr who was another Skrull agent. She was specifically picked as she originated from the planet of Warskrulls and it was believed that their children may be born as Warskrulls. A normal Skrull mimics the physical appearace of any other being but a Warskrull can also mimic their powers, making them much more lethal and useful for the invasion. The two eventually developed an actual relationship with each other and raised their three daughters on Earth like a normal American family. they are placed on Earth to become a means of infiltrating Earth’s government to pave the way for the Secret Invasion.
Her role in the series
So what role could Gi’ah play in the series? It is still unknown who the villain of the series is, but if this new report is to be believed it may mean that she is one of the evil skrulls stationed on earth to infiltrate S.H.I.E.LD or S.W.O.R.D. As we know the MCU has first introduced us to the idea of good skrulls with Talos and his family so it is possible that Gi’ah’s origin story is different. However, Gi’ah most definitely seems like she may be a villain of the series, stationed on Earth by whoever is the Top skrull leader, maybe by the Skrull Queen Veranke.
