As in her Released Form,


Hestia is kind, slightly childish and sometimes lazy, because she prefers to have fun than to study like when she is at the Caradigan School and falling asleep while in class. She's however becoming very serious, calm and thoughtful during the battles and serious condition, unlike Taiga, Mikoto and Ryouko who are very impulsive, naive, angry and violent. Hestia is very fond of Bell, she is in love with him. She is very worried about Bell when he goes to the dungeons, constantly worrying about losing him. She is also very jealous, especially when she learns that Bell met Aiz Wallenstein and that since then, he had fallen in love.

After being projected with Bell in Alkeed located of the Earth, she wants to become a knight to be able to protect Bell and ended the Dragon War forever. Hestia had discovered that she has a special power to communicate with all the dragons, it is a formidable power but turns against her because she can hear the cries of distress, pain and sorrow of dragons wounded or killed by cruel humans, which tears her heart. Hestia really hates brutality and prefers with gentleness and calm to approve and train the dragons, unlike Ryouko who is very brutal and violent with the dragons. Since Bell become a Fairy-Dragon known as Arthur: the Celestial Dragon, the ties between him and Hestia are greatly reinforced, as she can communicate by telepathy and read in thoughts.

She is very exasperated the constant disputes between Taiga and Ryouko, and tries desperate to stop them. Although Hestia is the leader of the group, she was struggling to get along with her teammates, Taiga, Mikoto and Ryouko, because of their short-tempered personalities and daily hassles. But their ties are very strong in despite of everything, and she acts almost like a big sister for them.

However in her Draconic Form, more she used her dragon power, she progressively transformed herself into a black dragon, but find herself deprived of her feelings, emotions and reason, she feels only the anger and the irrepressible need to kill anyone and even her own friends. Hestia can resume her normal form only if she suppresses the object of her anger and hatred, or if she exhausts all her vital energy but losing consciousness shortly after and does not remember her Draconic Form.


Early Life:

We know very little about Hestia's origins or her past, except that she is a goddess born of the Heaven and never had parents like any other gods, and descended into the Lower World in order to be able to found a Familia and thus grant her blessing to the future members, of course in exchange for Favors on the part of the latter. Thus, Hestia founded the Hestia Familia, and will be joined by Bell Cranel, who for now is the only member of the Familia.
