Helen is a character alongside Jamie in The Homeward Bounders.

Her origins are in a harsh desert world where the weak are usually killed at birth. Helen was born with a withered arm and her mother was forced to beg for her daughter's safety. However, it was discovered that Helen can change her arm into anything at will, and she was taken to the [House of Uquar]?, who took care of her until she was cast out onto [the Bounds]? when she discovered Them playing a game with her world.

She meets Jamie at the Bounds and holds onto him so she'll have a "native guide".

She enjoys making fun of Jamie, revenge, and has a certain softness for creepy-crawlies. On many occasions after a fight, Jamie gives her "gifts" of bugs and rats to calm her down.
