Halissa was the sister of Valla.[3]



The daughter of a sawyer,[2] Halissa and her family resided in Westmarch.[1] She was close to Valla, and her face always lit up at the sight of her.

Halissa's family were killed by demons, when the Hellspawn attacked their village. Valla grabbed Halissa and they ran to the river and hid for weeks. Memories of the massacre gave her nightmares and "unhinged" her mind. One night she woke up screaming and ran, coming too close to the riverbank and slipping. Valla, who had chased after her, tried to grab her hand, but lost her grip and she was swept away in the current, drowning.[2]



Valla at her family's graves

Valla erected a gravestone for Halissa beside the graves of her parents. She later joined the Demon Hunters, and kept an etching of her sister on hand, even two decades after her death. Halissa's death continued to haunt her, and the memories were used against her by the demon Valdraxxis. Just prior to her departure for Khanduras in light of premonitions of a Fallen Star, she visited Halissa's grave again.[2]

Later, Valla encountered Halissa within the Pandemonium Fortress.[4]


In Diablo III, Halissa appears within the Pandemonium Fortress in Act V, provided the player is controlling a Demon Hunter. The game operates under the premise of her being the sibling of the Demon Hunter, regardless of the character's gender (the same principle applies to the Demon Hunter's cinematic intro and journal entries). She is depicted as a little girl armed with a Hand Crossbow.

Halissa's "older" portrait

Her initial portrait found in the game files shows her as a young woman (not a girl) with similar facial features.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Valla described Halissa as possessing bright, inquisitive eyes, and boundless energy.[2]
