"I've been trying my hardest to keep this town safe, like my grandmother used to."
-- Helen after the endgame in Power Master 1: A Strange Journey, {{{3}}}

Helen is a major character in the Power Master series. She is a shy, timid, and sheltered character, but is kind and always willing to help if she can. Helen is the cousin of Stephan, making her a descendant of the heroes of Moneo, Kyle and Merlina, as well. As with Stephan, her past is largely unknown. She currently lives with her grandmother, the Guardian of Dora.

History

Power Master 1: A Strange Journey

In Power Master 1: A Strange Journey, Helen is eighteen years old. When trying to enter Dora's house, Helen will answer instead, claim she is the player's cousin, and say her grandmother was kidnapped and brought into the nearby Dora Desert. After defeating the person who kidnapped her and returning Dora home, Helen will ask to join the team, which the player can either accept or deny. After the endgame, Helen can be found in her house again, and the player can have her join the team once more.

If the player is already playing as Helen, Stephan will answer the door instead.

Compared to the other characters, Helen is fairly weak. She has the lowest amount of Health and is tied with Stephan for the lowest Defense. She does, however, have access to Whips, which gives her the strongest physical weapon choice at the start of the game. She cannot use swords or axes.

Helen's skills are mainly stat boosters or protectors. She's the only member who can Heal others or raise fallen allies with Raise II. Helen is the only character in the game that gets another skill (Raise II) after gaining all of the ultimate skills, and she also gains another skill (Fairy's Breath) along with them.

Please do not add false or speculative information to the section and please site your sources. Additionally, once the game is released, this section may need reorganizing.

Helen appears in the remake of A Strange Journey, again as a player character. While any one of the main heroes can share the same class, named "Legendary Descendant", Helen has a 25% increase to the Maximum Energy stat. As one of the new mechanics in Power Master: A Strange Journey MV, Helen can no longer learn skills by leveling up. In terms of design, Helen has changed the most out of the original four characters: She now wears a short dress with black boots and gloves, though no longer wears an undershirt and pants.

In the 0.1.0 demo, she is also capable of wielding lances, swords, and axes, in addition to the weapons and armor she used in the original game. Helen also gains additional expressions. The player starts as Stephan, though they can chose to swap with Helen by finding her in the Shop and speaking to her. In the 0.2.0 demo and onward, Helen only has access to whips, shields, and wands, being able to use other weapons by wearing certain armor. She also loses her expressions, making way for her armor-based portraits in later demos.

Helen also has a personal whip, shield, and armor.

The only time an enemy Helen is fought in PM1 is during the fight against the creator's team in the Area Unknown. To fight Alex's team, the player must find and talk to Alex in 26 different locations. Afterward, Alex will ask the player if they want to fight his team.

Development

Originally, only one member was going to join the player (the Warrior of Bora). While players could still choose Helen, the role of the player's cousin was filled by a character named Alice. It wasn't until after the completion of Power Master 3's planning stages that all four members could join.[1] In terms of Helen's actual design, she hasn't changed much. She originally wore a sleeve-less tank top.

Trivia

  • Though Helen's enemy battler sprite in Power Master 1: A Strange Journey depicts her with a Whip, she uses attacks based on the Book of Nightmare. However, her Doppel acts as if it's using a Whip.

Sure, you could swap the characters around at first, but only you and your friend from Bora joined. It wasn't until after I finished Power Master 3 that I went back and made Helen and Hamilton additional members." - Alex in Dora, Power Master 1: A Strange Journey
