She has two daughters, Fela and Lyssa. She has a reputation for thrift and good stewardship. Helena is considered one of the most beautiful noblewomen of the Redshore and the competition for her hand in marriage was fierce. She is twenty-two years of age.
Quotes about Helena:
“The best thing I ever did for my family was take to sea after the duel. Helena has my father’s chivalry and stubbornness, my mother’s beauty and brilliance and just enough of her older brother’s pride and wit. She’s a finer ruler than I ever would have been.” —Jon Corsair (Jonathan Holyoake)
