Ciara is new to the series but is shown to have a skater meets emo scene style with black hair and black nails but loves video games, a habit she picked up from her brother Zack, her favorites include Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Mario and Sonic. Ciara is shown to be a little timid and nervous around other people she is not familiar with and high school was hard for her. She had a hard time making friends, mostly because of her unrevealed past with Josh Hunter, she only thing that is known is that the two had a sexual history due to her pregnancy scare, and not much is known about Josh. After a few days, Ciara was able to find a friend in fellow freshman, Jasey McBain. Ciara's father is Milo Giambetti, a bodyguard for Sonny Corinthos, so Ciara has been taught self-defense techniques and is a black belt in Kung Fu. Ciara's mother died when she was four, so she has grown up in a single father household, but her uncle Max Giambetti and his wife, Diane Miller have been a lot of help and Ciara. Diane has been a great mother figure for her. Her dad works with Sonny Corinthos so she does know and has come in contact with Briana Corinthos, Leah Corinthos, Trinity Corinthos, Madi Morgan, Ali Morgan, Elena Zacchara, Sydney Zacchara, and Christian Zacchara.
Ciara was born in Port Charles, New York and it is believed her mom died in childbirth, leaving just her, her dad and brother Zack. Zack always watched out for Ciara, playing the role of the protective older brother. Growing up, she knew both the Corinthos and Morgan families but due to their parents business relationship, she never hung out with the Corinthos or Morgan girls.

Zack asks what Jasey is on and Ciara tells him she mentioned Lexapro and Welbutrin earlier. As they drive off, Zack tells Ciara they have to get her to the ER but Ciara tells him that if they take her to the ER her parents will be called and they are hard enough on her as it is and if they find out, they will care less about the fact someone tried to roofie her, but the fact she was there in the first place and blame her.
