Because she is Austrian Herta is often mixed up with the Latvian vixen Dace and the Polish vixen Anna as she has white and red fur. Unlike Dace however Herta has white fur with a red underbelly and a red stripe running down her back whilst Dace has red fur with a white stripe down her back. In her first appearance Herta is a normal vixen but when she returns in the Anthro Saga she wears two sets of clothing. During her time in Argentina, at her trial and around the bunker she wears a white blouse, a dark green skirt and black boots but in battle she now wears a dark green jacket and a black belt. Herta speaks English and German.
Despite the fact she is a hero Herta has many qualities of a villain as she enjoys both physical and psychological torture of the prisoners of the Fox Junta and one of the many characteristics about Herta is that she doesn't mind killing and she is also a very, very cold, stone-hearted character towards her enemies and is a fierce fighter.
Herta is also a very firm character as she does her actions very firmly. She stands very firmly, she marches very firmly during the Fox Junta's invasion of Animalia and during this invasion whilst the adults are together the children are sent with Brainy and Krypto, and during Anthro Girls Sing she does her actions very firmly as well. But despite her villainess qualities Herta does have good qualities. She loves her son and husband and has friendships with not just other vixens in the Junta but also members of the Animalian Patriotic Front and the National Protection Process.
