Born as the second daughter of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, Drusilla grew up on Paradise Island, along with her older sister, Princess Diana. After Diana left the island, Drusilla quickly rose to be finest archer and rider of the Amazons. After Diana had been in America as Wonder Woman for a while, the queen felt that it was time for Diana to come back home. So, she sent Drusilla to urge Diana to return to Paradise Island. Diana is reluctant to return, just yet. So, she decides to show Drusilla that the world needs Wonder Woman. She convinces Drusilla to dress like an ordinary, American teenage girl and pose as Diana Prince's little sister, who's visiting Diana for a few days. While on a car trip, along with General Blankenship, they're attacked by Nazi spies, that abduct the general, while leaving Drusilla behind. Unable to contact Diana, she decides to go after the Nazis themselves and transforms into Wonder Girl. Unfortunately, she steps into a trap set by the Nazis, that mistake her for Wonder Woman and chloroforms her. She's taken to another hide-out, where she accidentally reveals the location of Paradise Island, prompting the Nazis to invade the island. However, Drusilla eventually manages to escape, exposes a Nazi spy to Steve Trevor and heads back to Paradise Island, to help fight the invading Nazis off. After the crisis was averted, Drusilla remained on Paradise Island.
Some weeks later, however, the Queen sent Drusilla to retrieve Diana again, for the bi-millennial celebration of the founding of Paradise Island. Drusilla traveled to Hollywood and befriended an American soldier named Jim Ames. Though, she begins to resent him when she finds out, he's been lying about his heroism. Jim, however, proves himself a true hero and earns Drusilla's crush. Afterwards Drusilla and Diana headed back to Paradise Island, for the celebration. Whatever happened to Drusilla after that, is still unknown.
