History: Hebe was the youngest daughter born to Zeus and Hera, king and queen of the gods of Olympus. For an untold amount of time, Hebe served her family diligently as their cup-bearer, serving them wine and ambrosia during their meetings and festivals; the ambrosia, which could boost even a god's vitality, she brewed herself. The only one she didn't serve in this manner was her father, Zeus, after he chose a mortal boy, Ganymedes, to be his personal servant.

Hebe fell in love from afar with her mortal half-brother Hercules during his Twelve Labors. It wasn't until years later, after Herc died and ascended to godhood, that she was able to act on her feelings. To everyone's surprise, Hera offered Hebe to Hercules as a bride as a peace offering; Hera has commented that after the battle against the giants, Hebe wouldn't shut up about Herc's heroics. The two have been happily married for millennia and have two sons, Alexiares and Anicetus, who act as Olympus's gatekeepers.

The only time Hebe is recorded in directly interacting with mortals in the days of the ancient heroes is when her nephew-in-law Iolaus, who in his youth was Hercules's charioteer, was in his older days challenged to a duel. Hebe granted him one day of youth during the day of the duel, permitting the duel to be on even terms; Iolaus won the duel.

When Hercules traveled to Earth for adventures after the worship of the Olympian gods faded, Hebe often sneaked down to Earth to be near him. Finding Herc in others' beds, male and female alike, often caused her anger and jealousy, but for unknown reasons she always forgave him and went back to him. It has also been implied that Hebe had many lovers on the side herself over the millennia.

Recently, Hebe was working in a Los Angeles soup kitchen for the homeless while auditing classes at UCLA, activities she chose in order to stay busy while Herc was busy with his acting career under his assumed Kevin Hunt identity. She sometimes appeared on television alongside him as a recurring guest star, portraying her distant cousin Nike. When her latest mortal half-sister, Nyssa Savakis, was attacked by their brother Ares's Warhawks biker gang and Nyssa instinctively called down lightning on them, Hebe was initially reluctant to get involved. She was present at the meeting of the Olympian High Council in her position as cup-bearer of the gods when the gods decided on a "wait-and-see" approach to Herc assisting Nyssa; Hebe suspected her mother was behind Ares's attack, but could not prove anything.

Despite all that, Hebe rejoined Herc and Nyssa on Earth, accompanying them as Herc made the rounds introducing Nyssa to her extended immortal family. Despite Nyssa's reservations, the two have become close friends.

Role-Playing Notes:

Hebe is the eternal teenager, prone to all the mental and emotional ups and downs that entails, from exuberant optimism to kneejerk rebellion and surly moodiness, with everything in-between. She loves her husband, despite his tendency to stray; she has not been entirely faithful herself, either, as her eternal teenage-rness also includes experimentation. Despite all this, she supports him in everything he does.
