|Killzone 3 (Cameo) Killzone: Shadow Fall|
|Affiliation||Helghan Empire, New Helghan|
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 Second Extrasolar War. It is highly likely that Hera was in her mid to late teens, when the Terracide took place.
Some thirty years after the destruction of Helghan and the relocation of the Helghast race, Hera became Chancellor of the New Helghan government and rules the Helghast Sector of Vekta City. She is first seen presiding over Shadow Marshal Lucas Kellan's interrogation. She is revealed to be Echo's mother, and the two get into a heated argument over Hera's alliance with Jorhan Stahl and their plans on using Hillary Massar's bio-tech weapon to eliminate the Vektans. 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 was 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 will be justified in defending her people and their home.
