During the Geraptiku era, Geraldina was admiring Wave as he surfs. However, when Wave and Hikari fell in love, that's when jealousy takes over. Geraldina insisted of making a spell that can make Wave all hers. As a major hurricane rolled through Geraptiku, it was perfect timing for her to do the spell. The spell was successful. Wave wakes up from his slumber, picks up his surfboard, and surf the high tides during the hurricane. An eyewitness saw everything of what Geraldina has done. A riot was formed the next day and invade Geraldina's tent. Geraldina had tricks up her sleeve and disappeared.
Geraldina is selfish, arrogant, and in love. Geraldina does not want to listen to anyone who says about their "love connection" between her and her love interest, Wave Pull. That being said, Geraldina does not like being alone, which is the reason why she casted a curse on Wave. Due to her jealousy, she deliberately spy on Wave and Hikari to wait for her move.

Geraptiku and the Cursed Wave arc
Geraldina first appears in a fan-made comic arc, Geraptiku and the Cursed Wave, as the main antagonist. She appeared when Wave was explaining his story of Geraptiku, before the village was abandoned but she was messing around Wave's mind, causing Sylvestre Junior to be suspicious.
During Wave's first night with the brothers, they go to sleep while Blayne takes a shower. Wave gets the couch as his bed while Zappz asked, or 'begged,' Sylvestre to sleep with him. As the night progresses, Geraldina goes through Wave's mind. Wave wakes up with his eyes changed color. In the morning, Sylvestre finds Wave passed out by the door, which was open. When Zappz asked Sylvestre if they can go to Geraptiku to experience Wave's origins.
Their journey soon took a twist when she appeared after escaping from Wave's medal, in full body. Geraldina introduces herself to the brothers. She shares a story that she was jealous of Wave and Hikari together and she cursed the village girl. She continues to explain but Sylvestre silenced her. Blayne asked her why she cursed Wave to keep to all to herself and why she felt desperate. Cursed Wave gets mad. Geraldina threatens the brothers to join her dark side to rule the world. She unleashed her true powers while the brothers run for their lives.
While running away from Geraldina and the cursed Wave, the Neopets around Mystery Island were being stormed by black sludge. Once a Neopet touches the black sludge, the victim is immediately cursed. The brothers hide in a hut so they don't turn evil from the raining dark sludge. Sylvestre advises them not to touch it. They thought they were being safe but Geraldina and Wave chase them again.
Wave gets mad and Geraldina picks a victim to be evil. She picked Zappz. Sylvestre sees that Zappz was on the path of becoming a evil Ixi. Sylvestre pushes Zappz away and he gets hit by the black sludge. Sylvestre fights the urge of becoming evil but couldn't. Buizel, Blayne, and Zappz tries to leave Mystery Island but Zappz doesn't want to leave Sylvestre behind.
The brothers, exception of Sylvestre, escape harm's way but Zappz feels depressed on leaving Sylvestre behind. They decide to visit Sophie to ask her for a potion to separate Geraldina and Wave.

After Wave disappeared, a villager witnessed it all and reveal it to the public that Geraldina was using dark magic. A riot was formed and caught her off guard. Saying her last words, she disappears in purple smoke. After the trio received the potion from Sophie, cursed Wave witnessed it all in a crystal ball and sending Sylvestre to kill the brothers.
The trio returned to Mystery Island to figure out how to sneak in without anyone noticing. But, Sylvestre spots them and points a spear at them saying that he's going to kill them. Zappz cries Sylvestre to stop and he did. His memory was flowing with Zappz's voice and Wave's promise. He snaps out of it and ask them why he has a headache and why he's holding a spear.
After regaining control of his body, Sylvestre ties up his brothers and take them to the dark duo. Wave drinks a smoothie that he asked. But, the brothers put the potion in the drink. The potion takes effect and separating the dark duo. Sylvestre grabs Wave's hand and Geraldina vows revenge on them. She disappeared. Or did she?
