Heady is a Splicer model that appears exclusively in the Minerva's Den DLC for BioShock 2. Like other Splicers, she is mentally unstable from her ADAM abuse. Judging by her dialogue, she has no time for emotions, and takes her job very seriously. She distrusts The Thinker and is disdainful of her coworkers believing that they're all out to get her. She has a distinct Nordic accent.

Heady is dressed in the attire of a conservative businesswoman. Her outfit consists of a modest, tartan circle skirt, a button-up blouse worn under a thick v-neck sweater, stockings, a pair of mary-janes, a beaded necklace, and an identification tag. Compared to many of the Splicers encountered in 1968, the changes to her body from her addiction seem quite minor. The most noticeable of these deformities include a scar running from the left side of her mouth, tumors growing from her right forearm and above her left eye, pronounced wrinkles, lightly sagging skin, a swollen shut eye, and some missing teeth. Her brown hair can be worn in three ways, pinned up short, in a large beehive, or at shoulder length, and she can wear a pair of glasses with a pencil tucked behind her ear as an accessory. Her eyes are hazel.

Model 1: The primary model has light skin. Her sweater, heels, and necklace are brown, her blouse is white, and her skirt is done in a faded blue plaid pattern. Her stockings are light brown.

Model 2: This model has slightly darker skin. Her sweater, heels, and necklace are black or very dark brown, her blouse is white, and her skirt is done in a faded red and white plaid pattern. Her stockings are white.

Model 3: This model has pale, cool-toned skin. Her sweater is light blue. Her stockings, necklace, and blouse are black. Her skirt is done in a black and dark grey plaid pattern.
