Genevieve is the mother of Cane Ashby and former wife of Colin Atkinson. She came to Genoa City from Australia to avenge the death of her daughter, Samantha. She made an attempt on Colin's life, whom she blamed for the death. After, it was revealed that she and Colin had a love/hate relationship. Genevieve eventually ended up with Jack Abbott, but let him down by buying Beauty of Nature out from under him. The wedding was called off and she wasn't able to get back into his heart even by offering him the company.
Genevieve confessed to illegal business tactics to keep Cane from being deported, and had all her assets frozen. Tucker, who was a childhood love, paid her bills at the Club. A secret account she had in Switzerland she had was drained by someone, and strange occurrences linked to her dead daughter have begun. Genevieve was forced to defend herself when Cane thought she was behind it. Genevieve told Tucker she wanted him when she was with Colin.
