Like Crash, Tawna was zapped by the Evolvo-Ray. All it did was give her a Baywatch body and make Crash love her.
Tawna left Crashie after he saved her life. She eventually ran off with Pinstripe. Classy!
- Rumor has it, Naughty Dog originally wanted Crash to use Tawna as a raft in certain stages, due to her chestile floatation devices. This idea was eventually dropped, but pieces of it emerged through Warped's jetski stages, and Twinsanity's humilskate missions.
