Helena is a Bertinelli, if you know who they are, then you know who she is. Huntress is a known vigilante of Gotham City. One that takes a harsher approach to justice.


Helena had a family - a mother, father and older brother.

But the family had secrets and those secrets of the mother and the father tore the family apart.

Helena's mother and father, and her brother, were gunned down by an assassin. Only Helena was left to tell the sad tale of what happened. She found herself with no immediate family to call upon and because of that relatives from Sicily came to the States to take Helena back 'home'. While in their care she found herself plagued by nightmares, by fears, by crippling anxiety, and they gave her a choice - allow her life to be ruled by these fears, or find a way to fight back.

She chose to fight back.

This embarked Helena on a training regime of strength and fitness and also combat; both armed and unarmed. Her weapon she chose that nice was the crossbow, which would become her signature weapon of choice.

Years passed, as they do, and Helena realized her family was not as normal as others. They were part of the Mafia.

Along with this realization Helena started her hunt for the assassin that killed her family.

This led her into the area of becoming a masked vigilante.

More years passed and Helena eventually returned to Gotham City and with her return a new masked Vigilante appears. Huntress - a woman who's brand of justice was and still is harsher than the rest of the costumed folk.

A bat, but not.

Perhaps a Bird of Prey instead.

Character Details

There are two sides to Helena. What the world sees every day during the light hours and then who she really is at night. As the Huntress, Helena allows all that rage and pain to be used to fuel her fight against the families, but also all underworld elements of Gotham City. She's okay with being the no-holds-bar hit them hard vigilante. Of course all of that rage and anger, and pain, is also a shield against anything that might hurt her. It protects her, but also keeps her at armslength with most people, or groups, no matter that it's inclusion that she really seeks.
