Hippolyta is definitely a cool person to meet—if you're female, that is. The former Queen of the Amazons isn't too cool with guys these days. If you want to have a chat with her, head down to Elysium, the land of the blessed dead. She'll be the tall, buff, and beautiful queen with a no-nonsense look on her face. Watch out for flying arrows.
