Hesina is the wife of Lirin, and mother to Kaladin, Tien and Oroden.

It is implied that she is originally from Kharbranth.

She is the only woman (and thus the only person) in Hearthstone who can read. She often read for Kaladin from a book on medicine his father owned.[citation needed]


Hesina is described as having dark hair and dark eyes. She wears a glove, not a sleeve, over her safehand.[citation needed]


She appears to be very free spirited.

She is delighted by the person Kaladin has become.[1]
