|Killzone 3 (Cameo) Killzone: Shadow Fall|
She was first seen very briefly in Killzone 3's intro where she greeted her father and then stood by as he made his speech. She was then sent to the planet Gyre for her own safety, and remained there for the duration of the war. It is highly likely that Hera was in her mid to late teens, when the Terracide took place.
She appears as a central character in Shadow Fall, now the Chancellor for the New Helghan government. She rules the Helghast Sector of Vekta City, some thirty years after the destruction of Helghan and the relocation of the Helghast race. She is first seen presiding over Lucas Kellans' interrogation. She is revealed to be Echo's mother, and the two get into a heated argument. After silencing her daughter by force, Lady Visari orders the guards to send her away to safety. She exchanges a few words with Kellan, remarking how interesting it was that the Vektans and Helghast were once considered the same race, and now they were enemies. She leaves the room, telling Saric to keep the Shadow Marshal alive. Lady Visari is never seen again throughout the rest of the game.
Despite the recent argument with her mother, and not agreeing with the use of a biological superweapon, Echo understands the Chancellor's dilemma. She tells Lucas that Visari is being pressured into a new war (apparently, her striving for peace with the Vektans has caused her to become unpopular with the Helghast military). Echo says "Visari is doing this because she thinks she doesn't have a choice." If Vekta attacks, she will not back down. She'd be justified in defending her people and their home.
