The female version of hero.
As it's a gender specific word, it's considered un-PC by many.
Hero is the gender neutral term, as the word 'hero' had nothing to do with the word "he". One comes from Greek, one from Old English.
In Greek legend there's actually a woman called Hero as in the tale of Hero & Leander.
The heroine triumphed against the evil dude.
