Hera is the first sucessful Human/Cylon Hybrid, the culmination of the Cylons' experiments to achieve viable procreation. Her parents are the human Lt. Karl "Helo" Agathon of Galactica and a copy of the Number Eight-model of Cylon ("Caprica" Valerii) who took part in the Cylon experiment to set up Helo into falling in love with and impregnating her. This experiment was conducted because the forced cross-breeding experiments in the Cylon Farms met with complete failure, and the Cylons theorized that the key element to procreation that they were missing was love (which is very important to them, because the Cylons believe that "God is love"). As a result, Hera is currently the only successful progeny of a humanoid Cylon, and therefore literally considered a "miracle of God" by the Cylons.

Hera was conceived 24 days after the Cylon attack on Caprica, in a night of passion after Helo "rescued" Caprica-Sharon from what was really a Cylon trick. Caprica-Sharon was ordered to convince Helo to stay in "hiding" on Caprica, but instead she truly fell in love with Helo and then began helping him to escape the Cylons; Caprica-Sharon apparently then switched over to the human's side. After Lt. Thrace arrived on Caprica to retrieve the Arrow of Apollo, she left in captured Heavy Raider along with Helo. and Caprica-Sharon went with them back to Galactica, much to the consternation of many in the Fleet. Caprica-Sharon was held in Galactica's brig for the next few months, as her pregnancy continued to advance.

Hera was born by Caesarian section one month premature. President Roslin then arranged with Dr. Cottle to fake her death, telling Helo and Sharon that she was dead, then secretly letting a woman named Maya adopt her. Maya did not know her true origin, and was told that she was the daughter of a Pegasus officer, who had given her up for political and religious reasons. The reason for this subterfuge was to keep Hera safe from humanoid Cylons hiding in the Fleet, by making them think that she had died (Downloaded).

When the Fleet settled on New Caprica, Roslin began teaching the school in the settlement and Maya came with her. Maya brough along Hera, whom she had named "Isis" (Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II).
