When we first met Hetan, she had not chosen a mate and seemed to have no interest in settling with any one man. Her sexual appetite was described as quite voracious and her habits, quite ferocious. She did, however eventually find a mate in Onos T'oolan.
After Onos committed suicide in order to spare his people, Hetan, as his wife, suffered the greatest indignity and was hobbled by the removal of her toes and then used by any man who saw fit to do so. She later died during an escape attempt arranged by Bakal and Estaral.Toc the Younger found her body, resurrected her and reunited her with her husband and children though she remarked she had "someone else's toes."
In answer to a reader's question, Steven Erikson explained why he resurrected Hetan and that ultimately it boiled down to "because she, Toc, Tool, and all of you deserved it". For his full response read his answer to question 1 in the Tor Q&A session
