It's good to see you guys. It's… been a long time for me.Tawna, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time
Tawna (also known as Tawna Bandicoot) is an alternate universe counterpart to the main universe's Tawna. She is unlocked as a playable character after completing the level Hook, Line, and Sinker.
As with her main universe counterpart, Tawna was affiliated with her universe's Crash and Coco. At some point, she lost her friends at the hands of her universe's Nefarious Tropy (N. Tropy (F)) and fought against her on-and-off for years, just like Crash and Neo Cortex do in the main universe.
During the events of It's About Time, she first appears to rescue Crash and Coco when they are kidnapped by pirates. The bandicoot siblings quickly recognise her, and come to realise that she isn't from their universe. They have a brief interaction with the siblings explaining their current quest. Tawna encourages them but quickly takes her leave, insisting that she works alone, yet promising to help them out on the side.
Later, she encounters Dingodile and explains the inter-dimensional rifts to him, and the two agree to work together. The two of them reunite with Crash, Coco and Cortex on Nitros Oxide's ship, and they all set off together to defeat N. Tropy and N. Tropy (F). Soon after, Tawna ties up Crash and Coco to stop them from taking Nitros Oxide's Hovercraft to the Tropys' lab and jumps in herself, insisting that it's too dangerous for them and that she should do it alone. She sets off for the Tropys' lab and tries to fight them, but is overpowered by the two of them and is nearly killed by N. Tropy (F) before the rest of the gang arrives just in time. N. Tropy (F) decides to kill Crash and Coco instead, and teleports Tawna, Cortex and Dingodile away to fight the bandicoot siblings.
Tawna reappears after the N. Tropys are defeated and celebrates with Coco. She then goes with the rest of the gang to the Sn@xx dimension to celebrate their victory, and gets some fried food while they're there. When Cortex kidnaps Kupuna-Wa, she gives Crash a boost to chase after him and ends up left behind with Dingodile. At the end of the game, she celebrates by playing video games with Coco and Crash.
Tawna is a highly independent, no-nonsense woman who stands up for herself and what's right. After losing her universe's Crash and Coco, she insisted on flying solo to stop anyone close to her from getting hurt ever again. Resourceful and confident, Tawna uses her hookshot to aid her on the many adventures she has across dimensions. Once Crash and Coco defeat the N. Tropys, she allows herself to get closer with them.
Tawna is a tall, mutant bandicoot with orange fur, a cream-colored muzzle and blue eyes. She has short blond hair partially dyed cyan, and styled into a large faux-hawk. She wears a pink top with a blue and yellow line decal on the chest, a blue bandanna around her neck, a brown short-sleeved leather jacket with spikes on the shoulders, leather gloves with metal braces which are fingerless except for her ring fingers, tight blue patched pants with two brown leather belts, dark brown steel-toed boots with pink leg warmers and three golden earrings in her right ear.
