Stina Destry Heks is a female elf, and the daughter of Timkin and Vika Heks. In the earlier books, she and Sophie had a strong rivalry and Stina was constantly taunting her and trying to bully her. In Neverseen, she is willing to change her view on Sophie if Sophie can heal the gnomes. In Lodestar, it is revealed she is an Empath, like her mother. In Flashback, she assists her mother Vika in delivering the alicorn twins. In Legacy, she becomes a member of Team Valiant, and helps Sophie in many ways, proving that she is not as mean as she once was.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Stina is often described having a "bean-pole" body, meaning she is tall and skinny. Her arm are bony. Stina's brown hair curly and similar to a birds nest. Her eyes are navy blue almost violet in a certain light. When Stina smirks it's like a "cat trapping a helpless bird."

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Match Status: Unregistered

He was in Exillium for faking a talent so he could get in the elite levels but has earned his way back. He works with unicorns, trying to earn a way into the Nobility, and he works with the Black Swan as Coiffe.

She works with unicorns and assisted with the baby alicorns. In Legacy when Stina was made a regent her mother said, "You will make us all proud."

Stina isn't very kind to Sophie, believing Sophie is of lower social status. In Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities, she makes bets about how long Sophie will last at Foxfire (among other things) and mocked her often. She tells Biana that by her and Fitz being friends with Sophie is ruining the Vacker name. In Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities, Stina is the first to tell Sophie that Biana first befriended her because Alden forced her to. In Neverseen, Stina becomes somewhat less hostile and tells Sophie that if anyone could fix things, it would be her. Stina also confesses that part of the reason why she treated Sophie the way she did was because Sophie disliked her the first day she saw her in Slurps and Burps without knowing much about her and laughed at her. She becomes closer to Sophie in Legacy, and the two share a healthy friendship.

Dex and Stina have a long-running battle of mean pranks on each other that started Pre-Keeper. Dex made Stina bald and in return, Stina put a muskog in Dex's locker. Dex also gave Stina a beard, which was added as an extra pranking feature for her in the hairoids. Stina constantly holds the fact that Dex's parents are a bad match over his head.

Marella used to hate Stina in Book 1: Keeper of the Lost Cities and Book 2: Exile books of the Keeper of the Lost Cities series but eventually became friends with her during Everblaze when Sophie did not really pay attention to her. However, in Lodestar, Marella is envious of her when Stina manifests as an Empath, an ability that Marella wanted to manifest in to help her mother, and pulls away from Stina as a result.

  • MARUCA (friend/possible love interest)

Maruca and Stina became friends after Biana started hanging around with Sophie because Maruca felt abandoned by Biana. She was the one that told Stina the real reason Biana became friends with Sophie, which caused Sophie to temporarily break her friendship with Biana.

Biana and Stina used to dislike each other in earlier books. Stina was the one who told Sophie that Biana was only friends with her because Alden forced her to. Later in Legacy, Stina and Biana work together to help Sophie find out who her biological parents are. It is also observed by Sophie in Legacy that Biana looked "less uncomfortable" about the fact that Stina was right. These two have formed a healthy friendship through Legacy since they are both on Team Valiant.

  • KEEFE (Possible love interest/former enemy)

Keefe and Stina used to dislike each other in earlier books. But some people ship them together because they are both empaths.

Character Bio by Shannon Messenger[edit | edit source]

Stina can be hard to like, and she prefers it that way. She’s not looking to be Miss Popular because most people aren’t worth her time—and someone should definitely think twice before they mess with her. Especially Dex. Sure, her family’s had a few scandals over the years—but that doesn’t change how important they are. After all, they’re single-handedly making sure unicorns remain a thriving species—and Stina’s a huge part of that. Maybe it’s not as fancy as the Vackers, but who cares about the Vackers, anyway? That family has gone majorly downhill since they started wasting so much time on Sophie Foster—and don’t even get Stina started on Sophie. As far as Stina’s concerned, Sophie Foster is the most overrated thing to hit Foxfire since the boring Great Gulon Incident.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Shannon Messenger accidentally gave Stina two last names: Heks and Logner. Initially naming her "Stina Logner" on page 149 of Keeper of the Lost Cities, she later forgot whether she had given Stina a last name and used the surname "Heks" for the following books in the series. This error was later corrected.
  • In her registry file in Unlocked, it is shown that she has legal permission to use a spyball.

Quotes[edit | edit source]
