Hesua is a background character in The Wise Man's Fear. Kvothe meets Hesua during a stroll with Lerand Alveron in the gardens.
Alveron refers to Hesua as a "terrible woman" with a new man every span of days. Her latest lover was Yllish and didn't speak a word of Aturan.
Her father was wounded in a duel with Esquire Higton over an "inappropriate" remark made by the latter. According to Hesua, her father is improving and should be up before the span is through.
