Helena is a fair-skinned woman with a slightly chubby build. Her medium-length hair is curly and of a brown hue, and a blue bucket hat sits atop her head. She has a pair of brown, small eyes, on which a pair of black glasses rests. Her clothing consists of a white shirt, a tan unbuttoned trenchcoat, a blue plaid skirt adorned with patchwork and a pair of black court shoes. Also, a blue plaid scarf is tied around her neck and drapes down her chest.
Helena contracted a serious disease at a very young age, rendering her hospitalized and blind. Helena's father, deeply concerned for his beloved daughter, gifted her an exquisite wooden cane. He taught her how to sense the outside world, using her cane as an echolocation device. Helena's father later hired a tutor for her, Sullivan, who was excellent in teaching Helena. She was able to find a passion for language and literature, though she felt unaccomplished as she had been writing fictional 'experiences' of hers. Wanting to find her true self, she left her home and headed to Oletus Manor to attend a conference; this was a facade in order to lure Helena into playing the Manor's 'game'.
According to Identity V's official website:
Helena lost her vision in a fever when she was 1 year old, but she still learned how to read and write from her parents and a tutor. However, Helena has a greater ambition: getting a college degree. Can the owner of Oletus Manor pay for her tuition? That's what the braille invitation letter suggested, at least.
Due to her condition, Helena's vision of the map is totally dark, however, she can see whatever is near to her with a blue color.
- Echo: When she taps the ground with her cane, the sound waves produced can detect the location of the hunter within a small distance; Strike: When she strikes the ground with her cane, the sound waves sweep across the whole map and reveal the hunter's location, which is shared with teammates. Decoded cipher machines and moving teammates can also be detected. She cannot carry other items.
- Mind's Eye: Blindness has sharpened the Mind's Eye's other senses. When she decode cipher machines, almost no calibrations are triggered and her decoding speed is increased by 30%.
- Fragile: Physically weak. Obstacle vaulting speed is decreased by 30%.
All completed Objectives reward the player with +335 Logic points for the Logic Path.

|Family: My... most precious treasure.
||A photo: A middle-aged man wearing glasses is standing in front of a hospital bed, looking down at the girl lying in it.|
|Father's Gift: If possible, I would like to give her my eyes.
||"Bring this cane and listen intently to the sound it makes when it hits the ground."|
|Change: She's too young, she won't understand a change like this.
||Father's diary 1: Helena has become irritable and has begun to break her toys. The doctor said this was normal behavior and that I should think of a way to settle her down. Perhaps giving her more toys will work.|
|Private Tutor: Special children require special care.
||Every teacher is capable of leading children into the classroom, but not every teacher manages to teach them anything useful.|
|Talent: When God closes a door, another is opened.
||Helena, I am amazed and proud of your comprehension and ability to learn.|
|An Obedient Child: Helena, control your actions.
||A photo: A young female teacher is standing behind Helena with her hands on the girl's shoulders.|
|Hope: Some people are unable to get up after a fall and some garner strength from it.
||Father's diary 2: Hiring a tutor was the right decision. I never thought that a special child like her would be able to get this far. My little Helena has become a little poet.|
|Uncontrollable: To become an unprecedented hero, you have to take on many roles which you will only perform once.
||Father's diary 3: Helena has good ears. I don't know why she would say that.|
|Seize the Moment: Weakness can also be turned into a weapon.
||I will turn you into a miracle, Helena. A miracle that will never again be replicated.|
|Honest Life: Everyone needs an opportunity such as this, even if only once.

Helena caught a disease at a very young age, rendering her hospitalized and blind. Her father cared deeply for Helena, and even wished he could trade his vision for her blindness. He gifted Helena with an exquisite cane with which she could use as an echolocation device. Helena's father hired a tutor for her, who was excellent at teaching Helena. Seeing this as a chance for popularity, Helena's tutor made her pretend to be deaf in order to sound inspiring for teaching a blind-deaf girl. Helena, however, got sick of lying and left her home to live for herself and make her own decisions.
