Helena would have been dead at eight years old, if only a murderer had understood his instructions.
Born into a mafia family, daughter of a mob boss who was not married to her mother and raised by a hitman, Helena has seen more crime in her short life than most adults. At eight years old, Helena’s entire family was killed in front of her by an enforcer who worked for her biological father. Though Helena herself was meant to be part of that hit, the assassin misunderstood his instructions and let the girl live, instead killing an innocent nun.
The next four years of Helena’s life were spent in Sicily, hiding out with her uncle Lucio and preparing for her return to Gotham. She intended to return to her birth city and take revenge on her family’s slayer, but ended up coming back when he was instead killed by a thug who got away scot-free. Uncle Lucio’s death by a stroke left Helena without allies (though still many enemies) in Sicily.
Since then, Helena has been living with her cousin Temperance in Gotham’s Park Row… nicknamed “Crime Alley”. Helena worked for some time with an elderly doctor named Leslie Thompkins to try and rid Park Row of its bad reputation, until Helena decided Thompkins’ pacifist tactics would never truly work.
Helena looks at society as a whole as corrupt, and thinks the average person has neither the courage nor the desire to understand how bad humanity really can be. She has a very tight, exclusive circle of friends that she believes are trustable: Oliver Queen, Tommy Monaghan, Nat Hattfield, and Lonnie Machin (Known around Gotham High as the “Ne’er Do Wells”). Everybody else is suspect at the very least.
On Dark Day, Helena saw her own reflection emerge from a bathroom mirror in Gotham High and try to strangle her. Helena fought the Doppelganger as she retreated, finding her duplicate supernaturally strong. She managed to meet up with Oliver, who helped hold off Helena’s attacker as they retreated to the school gymnasium.
Before the pair could reach the gym, they found Tommy Monaghan being attacked by an arachnoid creature, appearing to feed on Tommy’s chest as Nat and Lonnie tried to knock it away. Helena and Oliver were faced with the decision of saving themselves or facing almost certain death alongside their friends. They chose loyalty over safety.
Just as Helena’s Doppelganger caught up and the monstrous insect continued to repel the attacks directed against it, a mysterious man in a gas mask and trenchcoat fired from the darkness with a gas weapon. The gas repelled the insect creature, and allowed the Ne’er Do Wells to kill Helena’s evil twin. Together they watched as its body dissolved into black mist.
The Ne’er Do Wells believe that Dark Day was an alien invasion, and that it has continued. Together, they vow to fight the darkness.
