First Apparition Date: 1998? (2018 for my version of her)
Species: Lion (Panthera Leo)
Family: Sarafina (sister), Nala (niece), Mheetu (nephew), Tama (possibly her niece too), the strongest of Scar's Lion Guard (former mate), Chumvi (son), Kula (daughter)
Age/Generation: Elderly, born during Ahadi's reign.
Residence: Pride Lands
Appearance: Helena is a sandy-colored lioness with reddish orange eyes and a dark pink nose.
Personality: She is a gentle lioness that likes to take things easy. She is also a little glutonous like her daughter.
Like And Dislikes: Like Dwala, she adores little cubs and seeing them grow is the greatest thing to her. She does not play games with them though, but take great care of them. Besides how tiring it was, Helena was used to handle her twin's sibling quarrels. She also like every kind of meat and swoons towards black-maned lions.
Fact About Her: She is based off that background lioness in The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, the one that says "My, how you've grown!" to Kiara. I made her Sarafina's sister since they both shared the same voice actress (Zoe Leader). Helena's original name was Samafi, but I thought it sounded a little too much like Sarabi. Also, she used to have a crush on Scar. (The main reason is hinted at the "Like and Dislikes" section above.)
History: Helena was born in the Pride Lands alongside her sister. Her occupation was to babysit the cubs while the other lionesses went hunting. She did join hunting parties on occasions, but mostly prefers to care for cubs.
With the strongest of Scar's Lion Guard, Helena had the twins, Chumvi and Kula. But before her cub's birth, Helena's mate got killed in an "accident" while he was on his duty. It saddened her to lose her beloved mate, but she focused on raising her two cubs.
Helena is currently an elderly lioness retired from hunting activities.
