She is one of presumably many animals that reside in the zoo in King Roland's castle. She is a white long-haired, and therefore an angora rabbit with a Southern accent who has talent for whistling, and lives in her own little castle.
She was introduced to Sofia by Princess Amber as a better choice for the pet contest instead of Clover. After eventually giving up on Clover, Sofia asks Ginger to go with her and she agrees, even revealing that she likes to wear bows, which Clover did not. However, unlike Clover, Ginger turns out to be somewhat snooty and not very fun to be with, and Sofia ends up leaving her with Baileywick while she returns home to fetch Clover. Ginger watches Clover's performance with everyone else and appears to develop a romantic interest in him afterwards, as she praises him and acts flirtatious after getting his attention during the parade, to the annoyance of Crackle. Clover also returns those feelings.
