Go To

The characters featured in Wonder Woman: Warbringer are listed below. For the main Wonder Woman character directory see Characters.Wonder Woman.

Diana Prince, Princess of Themiscyria

"You can't live in fear. You make things happen or they happen to you."

The main character of the book, destined to become Wonder Woman.

  • Embarrassing Nickname: Phyxis, which Tekmassa calls her. A Phyxis is a vial made from clay, a reference to the way Diana was created from clay, not as a human woman, and that Tekmassa thinks she's hollow and empty, as well as easily breakable. Diana is determined to prove her wrong.
  • Fish out of Water: In New York. Not too badly, though, because Themiscyria has access to modern literature and art.
  • The Hero: Well, she is a young Wonder Woman as the protagonist.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Interesting cross between this and I Just Want to Be Special. Diana does want to be recognized as an amazing warrior, but given that the normal on Themiscyria is human women who died bravely and were resurrected as Amazons there, that's just about everybody there. She also wants to make everyone stop treat her differently because of how she was created, so it's mostly just the desire to be accepted.

  • Statuesque Stunner: Alia notes multiple times how tall Diana is
  • When You Coming Home, Dad?: Well, Mom. Diana mentions that she once wove a small tapestry with her mother, and kept pulling out threads at night so that the tapestry wouldn't be finished and she'd get to spend more time with Hippolyta.

Alia Mayeux Keralis

"I'm Alia Mayeux Keralis. My father's blood made me a warbringer. But I am my mother's daughter, and I am going to stop a war."

Daughter of Nik and Lina Keralis, she's been living in fear of the people who want to hurt her family since the death of her parents. After an explosion on the ship she was one killed everyone else, she is rescued from drowning by Diana. However, she is the Warbringer, destined to start a world war, and so her adventure goes on.

  • Black and Nerdy: Both Theo and Nim remark that she's highly intelligent.

  • But Not Too Black: She's the daughter of a white man and a black woman.
  • The Chosen One: The Warbringer
  • Cosmic Plaything: Because she's the Warbringer, multiple factions are either trying to kill her or to save her, all with their own agenda. Even the oracle and several goddesses have a hand in this. Alia herself is just a normal seventeen year old girl who wants to live her life, though.
  • Deuteragonist: The book is named after Diana, but Alia's actions drive the story just as much as Diana's.
  • Doom Magnet: She's the warbringer, and fights and brawls break out whereever she goes
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: Alia desperately wants a normal life without worrying about people wanting to kill her or use her for her family's money.
  • Precocious Crush: Had one on Theo. Isn't really over it, and is implied to get together with him when the adventure's over
  • Screw Destiny: She's destined to bring on the next world war. The whole book is about trying to prevent that from happening.
  • Secret Legacy: Alia is the warbringer, destined to start a world war, like all the other warbringers before her, going back to Helena of Troy.
  • Selfmade Orphan: Jason hints that Alia might unintentionally be this, because their parents died in a car crash while fighting, and Alia's mere presence causes fights and brawls to break out.
  • Walking Disaster Area: What Alia is becoming as her seventeen's birthday draws closer

Poornima "Nim" Chaudhary

"It's the people who never learn the word impossible who make history, because they're the ones who keep trying."

Alia's best friend, an Indian American fashionista.

  • Ambiguously Bi: Or gay, she's not sure yet.
  • Gayngst: A mild case. She's out to her friends, and the casual way Alia mentions Nim's sexuality to Diana suggests that Nim doesn't make a secret of it at school. However, she is not out to her parents, and worries a lot about what their reaction would be, despite the fact that, as Alia points out, they'd probably not react negatively.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Has shades of this, and freely admits to dressing as colorful as she does partly because she wants attention.
  • Invisible Parents: They're mentioned exactly once as people who might worry about Nim, but never actually show up, and she doesn't seem to think about them too much, either
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Into girls, and really likes fashion
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: She only introduces herself by her full name once, afterwards she's only ever referred to as Nim.
  • Twofer Token Minority: Indian American and attracted to women.

Theo Santos
"It's always cooler to be the villain. You get to wear all black and have a lair and brood."

Jason's best friend, the son of Alia's godfather Michael Santos.

  • Drives Like Crazy: The only time he's driven before he crashed, which Nim uses to quickly veto his bid to be driver. He gives the excuse that "That tree was drunk".
  • Missing Mom: His mother is never mentioned
  • Playful Hacker: Seems careless, and is a very good hacker. The hacking comes in very handy at the final battle

Jason Mayeux Keralis

"We aren't like everyone else, Alia. Our family doens't have that luxury."

Son of Nik and Lina Keralis, older brother of Alia. He's been protecting her since the death of their parents.

  • Ambiguously Human: He's stronger and faster than a normal human, as Diana notes. This is because of the family's legacy, but if the "hero's blood" that makes him strong means he's a demigod for being descended from a few Olympians is unclear.
  • Black and Nerdy: He's a biologist, and he's black
  • But Not Too Black: His father was white and his mother black.
  • False Friend: Jason, to everybody given his hidden motivations, but a clear example is his relationship with Theo. He openly admits that the only reason he hung out with Theo was to keep an eye on his father.
  • Glory Seeker: Why he wants to bring on the war: He wants to be a hero of old and remembered as such
  • I Just Want to Be Special: To the degree that he wants to plunge Earth back into the bronze age and start a world war so that he can be a hero like the ones in the legends he grew up hearing.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: He has lots and lots of security hired, and is paranoid about Alia's safety. After The Reveal of his true intentions, it's questionable whether he actually wanted to protect Alia because he loves her, or whether he just wanted to make sure she started the war she's destined to bring.
  • Love-Interest Traitor: To Diana. They bond about wanting to prove themselves, and even kiss, and then it turns out he's been sabotaging The Quest the whole time.
  • Promoted to Parent: After the death of his and Alia's parents.


Queen of Amazons, mother of Diana.

  • The High Queen: She is a beloved queen and keeps a professional distanced air in public events, even if her daughter is competing.
  • Mysterious Past: Hippolyta told Diana the stories of the other Amazons, and how they died in battle before being granted the chance to live again as Amazons if they swore an oath to protect the wider world from the evils the island keeps at bay, but she never told her daughter her own story. It's hinted that unlike the others Hippolyta wasn't a normal human in her previous life, as the armor she died in is unmistakably magical.
  • Parents as People: She obviously loves Diana, but she's also the queen of the Amazons and therefore has to act a certain way and is busy a lot
  • Public Domain Character: As always, she's based on the Amazon queen from the Greek Myths.
  • Really 700 Years Old
  • Truly Single Parent: She formed Diana from clay
  • The Woman Wearing the Queenly Mask: Hinted at. Diana mentions that her mother has to make sure to present the exact right image to the other Amazons, and that she can never act the was she wishes to without considering the consequences.


Hippolyta's second in command. Does not trust the goddesses gift of life to Diana, and fears accepting it will harm her fellow Amazons as the goddesses do not give things for free.

The Oracle

"The Warbringer must reach the spring at Therapne before the sun sets on the first day of Hekatombaion. Where Helen rests, the Warbringer may be purified, purged of the taint of death that stains her line. There her power will be leashed and never pass to another."

The Oracle of the Amazons, a shifting all knowing figure

Helen of Troy

Helen Daughter of Nemesis, goddess of divine retribution, born with war in her blood. First of the haptandrai, the hand of war.

The daughter of Zeus and Nemesis, the first Warbringer from whom Alia and Jason are descended.

  • Posthumous Character: Helen died thousands of years ago, but the story of her life is retold and her bloodline is central to the plot. Her spirit also helps out the characters by revealing itself acting out events from her own life.


Goddess of divine retribution and the source of the cursed Warbringer bloodline through her daughter Helen.

  • Winged Humanoid: Her form is shadowy and humanoid, with glowing stips for eyes, a smattering of flecks of light and dark featherd wings.


Goddess of Strife and war.

  • Elite Mooks: Eris, Phobos and Deimos keep heckling Diana's group, first by possessing member of the group and then by manifesting their own physical forms, but Diana doesn't have too much trouble with them and it's clear they are not trying to kill Diana or Alia.
  • Winged Humanoid: Eris has four feathered wings.


The Greek god of panic and war. Son of Ares and twin of Deimos.

  • Animal Motifs: Snakes. His helmet is adorned with a relief of Medusa's head with the serpents arched and ready to strike. His chariot also has a snake motif.
  • Blood from the Mouth: He likes his manifestations and possessed hosts to have blood dripping from their mouths over their chins, especially while he's fighting or chasing people. He doesn't do this so much while talking though.
  • Elite Mooks: Eris, Phobos and Deimos keep heckling Diana's group, first by possessing member of the group and then by manifesting their own physical forms, but Diana doesn't have too much trouble with them and it's clear they are not trying to kill Diana or Alia.
  • Scary Teeth: His teeth are thin, curved and pointed like a whole mouth full of snake fangs.


The Greek god of terror and war. Son of Ares and twin of Phobos.

  • Animal Motifs: Lions. His helmet is adorned with a relief of a roaring lion. His chariot also has a lion motif.
  • Elite Mooks: Eris, Phobos and Deimos keep heckling Diana's group, first by possessing member of the group and then by manifesting their own physical forms, but Diana doesn't have too much trouble with them and it's clear they are not trying to kill Diana or Alia.
  • Scary Teeth: His teeth are long uneven and sharply pointed.


Virgin goddess war, knowledge, weaving and the pursuit of truth. She was the one who spun the Lasso of Truth and one of the goddesses responsible for giving Diana life and creating the sanctuary of Themyscira.

  • Patron Saint: Athena becomes Diana's patron as it was her name on Diana's lips when Diana died fighting to protect others.
