A player character in Victorian Justice League: A Tale of Two Cities.

Princess Diana of Themyscria was born among the Amazons approximately 2000 BCE. The Amazons were dying out when she was still a young adult. To preserve their future, the gods gave them a stone plinth and said one of their best warriors would be preserved on the plinth to help those who need help. A contest was held and though her mother, the queen, forbade her from competing, compete Diana did. And won. Taking up pose on the plinth, she transformed into a marble statue.

The Amazon culture faded and the plinth and statue were moved several times. In 1500 BCE, Diana defended the Minoas from outside invaders. In 100 BCE, Diana found herself in Rome. In 730 CE, she was moved to Gaul where she saved the ancestor of Charlemagne. In 1885 she was moved again to Metropolis Museum. Several months ago, she came to life to rescue a few children who were trapped under a ceiling collapse. She did not immediately return to stone as she usually did. Something was coming, she felt. That was five years ago. She was hired by the museum to help them in their studies of antiquity. She has cobbled together her combat gear from items found in the museums' storerooms.

Because she never assumed the same exact pose every time she went back to "sleep", there are stories of a statue being found and helping out and disappearing. But because the statue poses vary, no one figured out they were all the same statue. Diana is also probably part of the origin of the Pygmalion story.
