Diana of Themyscira was an Amazonian warrior and daughter of Hippolyta. She was given powers by the gods, to be used to combat all evil as the heroine Wonder Woman.
Diana is the daughter of Queen Hippolyta, and the first child born on Paradise Island in the 3000 years that the immortal Amazons lived there. In the early 20th century, Hippolyta was instructed to mold some clay on the island's shores into a baby girl. Six Olympian gods then granted the clay statue life, and each gave her their own gift of an ability.
Diana grew up surrounded by a legion of sisters and mothers. During her early adulthood, the gods declared that the Amazons must send an emissary into Man's World. Queen Hippolyta held a contest, but forbade Diana from participating. She entered anyway, in disguise, and easily won the competition. She was then named the Amazon's champion. She was given a uniform fashioned from the standard of someone who had visited the island a few decades earlier.
Wonder Woman did not keep her identity a secret, and she was not at first a "super-heroine". Indeed, her character was in many ways that of a girl in the woods, innocent and without guile. Diana spoke only Themyscirian, a combination of classical Greek and Turkish. She had to learn English when she arrived in America, rather than knowing the language intuitively. Nonetheless, Diana was trained as a warrior and had no compunction against using deadly force when called for. Diana often dealt with war, injustice, inequality, death, and conflicts involving the Olympian Gods.
Diana was also given the Lasso of Truth before embarking on her mission.
