In Season two, we are given two hints on the Parents of Donna Troy.
In Episode One, we see her father giving a young Donna an ice cream cone.
She is not an infant, which explains why her accent is American, even though she later spent years in Themyscira, where everybody speaks like Gal Gadot.
Her father dies in the fire, where she is rescued by Wonder Woman, according to Season One Episode Donna Troy.
Her father dying in the fire means he was human.
In Season Two Episode Two Donna says to Kori that she is half human.
That explains her enhanced physical abilities.
Her mother must be not human.
Does her name give any hints?
According to legends, a band of Amazons fought on the Trojan side in the Trojan War. Perhaps her mother was an Amazon, but not from Themyscira.
Her first name, Donna means Lady in Italian, God is my judge in Hebrew and Mighty Ruler in Gaelic.
Are Amazons or Atlanteans considered not human?
If her mother is a goddess, there are several candidates Hera, Aphrodite, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hestia or even maybe Circe, Nike or Thetis, mother of Achilles
My bet is Athena, daughter of Zeus. Since Diana may be also a daughter of Zeus. Diana is Donna’s Aunt.
Athena is one of the nine immortals who are the main characters in my novel.
She always introduces herself as
Pallas Athena, the Goddess of wisdom, civilization, warfare, crafts, justice and
Donna has many of these attributes.
