Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up... as princess of Themyscira, the hidden island homeland of the Amazons. Diana was a gift to her mother, Queen Hippolyta, and she grew up as the only child on the island. Though Hippolyta initially forbade her daughter from becoming a warrior, Diana’s persistence changed her mind. Young Diana received rigorous Amazonian training from her aunt, General Antiope, although Themyscira’s peaceful isolation meant she was unable to test herself in real-world battle.

Living... in the world of man. When US pilot Captain Steve Trevor crashes near Themyscira in 1918, Diana is devastated to learn that mankind is caught up in a viscous, brutal war. She decides to accompany Steve on his return trip to the Western Front, which brings her face-to-face with the world of man for the first time—but not the last. Diana eventually decides to stay amongst humanity and server as its protector. She currently lives undercover as Diana Prince, Curator for the Department of Antiquities at the Louvre Museum.

Profession... warrior hero. Diana has superhuman strength and extensive battle training. She’s also helped by tools including her sword and shield, her indestructible gauntlets, and her truth-telling Lasso of Hestia. This mythical warrior is a full-on superhero.

Interests... fine art, antiquities, and ice cream.

Relationship Status... in love with Steve Trevor. During their mission together, Diana develops romantic feelings for valiant Steve, the first human she’s ever gotten to know. Though fate may not allow them to be together, Steve will always hold a special place in Diana’s heart.

Challenge... saving the world. Diana’s initial enemy is Ares, the God of War, but she soon realizes there are many more threats out there too. Throughout her long life, Diana has often been torn between working from the shadows vs. publically claiming her role as a hero. In either case, however, her dedication to fighting evil and oppression never wavers. As she puts it, “I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.”

Personality... compassionate, driven, and intelligent. Diana changes a lot over the course of her immortal life, growing from a naïve young warrior to an elegant undercover hero. At her core, however, she’s driven by kindness, compassion, and a desire to help people. Her empathetic, lighthearted spirit sets her apart from some of her brooding fellow superheroes. As Diana knows, “Only love can truly save the world.” She delights in human things like ice cream and adorable babies. But don’t be fooled, Diana is also a fearless, fearsome warrior with a sharply strategic mind.
