Hessia was a general of the Amazons of Themyscira. During her time as a general, she went on a mission of peace for five years. On her way home, she discovered the truth about the nature and destiny of the Amazons. As in her eyes, her kind should be able to choose their own destiny, she cut the "thread of Amazon destiny" held by the Moirai. She sailed back to Themyscira soon after.
Eventually, she left Themyscira for good and started living in London, where she works as a martial arts teacher. A friend and confidante of Diana, she revealed her friend's relationship with Superman to the world because she thought it would make them both better.
- Amazonian Physiology: The Amazons are a race of warrior women that have received gifts and blessings from five Olympian goddesses: Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hestia and Aphrodite. Hessia possesses the same potential powers as an average Amazon. These include:
- Enhanced Intellect: A gift from Athena, the Amazons have the wisdom to be guided by peace and justice.
- Superhuman Strength
- Superhuman Durability
- Superhuman Stamina
- Superhuman Agility
- Immortality: The Amazons were gifted immortality. The people of Themyscira lived forever, though could be killed in war or in an accident. Those who followed Antiope and Phthia and became the Bana-Mighdall lost their immortality.
- Self-Sustenance: So long as Hessia stays on Themyscira, she does not require food, water or any other form of nourishment to maintain her health and vitality. Although they are not susceptible to the throes of hunger, this does not mean that Amazons don't consume food for enjoyment. The Amazons frequently hold great festivals wherupon food is served.
- Amazonian Training: The Amazons honed their skills in many fields, aided by the gifts from Athena and Artemis.
- Hessia lost her immortality and began to age as an ordinary person after she left Themyscira.
