She is the daughter of Fame Douglas and a world class soprano singer who is an expert in Pi Qua Quan. While performing at the opera house, a shot was fired at her, but killed her mother instead. While trying to find the culprit, she learned that the murder of her mother is somehow related to the "Dead or alive World Combat Championship." She later found out that Ayane was the murderer. She now aspires to defeat her.

When DOA2 first came out, I was expecting to be wowed by the new characters. Helena didn't impress me back then and she seemed to be "marketed" primarily as yet another DOA blonde with big boobs. I can admit she has evolved positively over the years, acquiring some pretty cool moves. However, Helena's moveset does seem to take quite a bit of inspiration from Ling Xiaoyu of Tekken, the most basic comparison being Helena's Bokuho stance and Ling's Phoenix stance. Helena isn't a total copycat, however, but I'd say she looks slightly less natural doing said moves. Some of Helena's attacks lack "oomph," and her overall style is a bit too "bird-like" for my tastes. Besides ridiculous amount of arm-flapping, Helena does have some cool kicks and throws.

Visually, her appearances never grabbed my interest, and her face has ZERO expression. She's plain. DOA didn't need another blonde with big boobs... and no, her silly Sephiroth bangs don't magically make her cool. Some of her outfits aren't terrible, but a lot of her costumes definitely aren't easy on the eyes. She seems a bit forced as a design, all around.
