Claim to Fame

Revenged minded vigilante who has the Mafia in her sights.


As Huntress she has a reputation of being the cold blooded hunter of those who lay claim to being members of the Mafia.
As Helena Bertinelli, she is known to be one of the better teachers in Gotham, truly an advocate and voice for her students.


Helena Bertinelli was born to Maria Bertinelli who was in the midst of an affair with Santo Cassamento. Her early childhood was spent listening to her parents fight with her father, Franco, often abusing her mother.
At the age of eight, Helena witnessed the death of her entire family. Due to miscommunication, Helena was allowed to live.
An uncle took her under his guardianship and sent her to Sicily where she was raised by a cousin. She was trained in marksmanship, driving and other combat-related skills.
After she reached adulthood she returned to Gotham, revenge on her mind. To provide herself with a job, Helena got her degree in education and got her credentials to teach English, choosing to teach at a high school level. She also started to take martial arts lessons. At night she took on the guise of Huntress and started to exact revenge upon those who have wronged her, not only seeking out those responsible for killing her family but some of her own blood as well, wanting to make them pay for the fear she lived in as a girl.
Over the years she ran those who disapproved of her methods, some of the other heroes who call Gotham home. She would eventually try to keep her desire for bloodshed at bay and began to work with them

Character Details

Helena is a woman shaped by tragedy, how she is now a result of many years of undealt with anger and grief she has yet to conquer. Bitter and slow to trust, she is not the kind of person who welcomes someone in past her shields quickly, it usually taking months, sometimes even years to be allowed to get close to her. While a woman with very little in the way of qualms where killing is concerned, she is also a nurturer, a woman who goes out of her way to help others, especially her students whom she loves as if they were her own children
