Heran (for male)/Hera (for female) is the term used to refer to an Etherian of royal blood or an Etherian noble who possesses special powers and abilities, amongst regular Etherians.
Hera/n is also used as a title or honorific for such Etherian royalty, who are addressed as Hera/Heran before their names.
A Hera/n, like a Sang'gre, is identified by a distinctive birthmark at their back which corresponds to the silhouette of a snake with a leaf resting on it's eye (though a Sang'gre mark differs from a Heran's). The symbol resembles the Etherians' bathaluman/goddess, Ether.
From Hera Andal:
- Avria - Queen of Etheria
- Lip-aya - sister of Avria
- Arkrey - pretended to be a Sapiryan and joined the soldier unit headed by Asval to serve as a spy for Etheria. He is the half-brother of Queen Avria.
From Hera Sensa:
- Animus - brother of Andora; his death caused the war in the original history of Encantadia.
- Cassiopea - fans knew her as the queen of Lireo and that she has pure Diwata blood but many are not aware of her lineage to this tribe where she got most of her powers like telepathy and precognition.
From Hera Aega:
- Arman - he is the son of Odessa and Alexus (Ybrahim), his Heran mark was discovered by Pirena.
From Hera Volo:
- Mine-a is not a Heran, she is a Sang'gre that was only adopted by Avria so that she will be the Queen of Etheria as Avria is unable to produce an heir.
- There are two uses for the term Hera, one that is used as a title (what this page is all about) and the other is used for the names of Etheria's tribes—Hera Andal, Sensa, Volo, and Aega.
