Heller's father was a bank guard who had been fatally shot by a man named Tommy Carlin during a bank robbery. Distraught by his death, Heller swore revenge and began investigating the murder on her own. She learned that Carlin had enlisted in the armed services and so she joined the Women's Auxiliary Corps in order to get closer to him. Heller's fiery temper embroiled her in a number of scuffles, and after several offenses, she was imprisoned inside one of the army base's guard houses.
An army lieutenant named Ben Hunter learned of Heller's superb combat skills and recruited her as part of a Special Forces detachment code-named Hunter's Hellcats. Heller faithfully served under Lt. Hunter throughout the remainder of World War II, but never gave up her search for Tommy Carlin.
