* Marital Status - Single/Widowed.
Current: Rich Widow
Current: Resident Evil Person
Helena Cassadine entered the story as a villainess and quickly became the resident 'evil' person, visiting sporadically to put everyone on edge at the mention of her name. Her first act of unkindness was the spell she placed on Luke and Laura for foiling her plot to freeze the world. She spoke the damning words and then disappeared.
Her main concern has always been the Cassadine fortune and her need to control it. Her grandson, Nikolas is the heir and the object of her affection. Helena has gone to great lengths to maintain control over him and the money. She has never liked Emily, and has taken great strides to remove her from her grandson's life. Unfortunately, one of Helena's attempts almost ended in her own demise, when Nikolas pushed her off a cliff. The woman is seemingly invincible and continues to defy death. Her nemesis is Luke Spencer, and the two have locked horns on many occasions.
Helena never relents, using whatever method necessary to get her way. Murdering Alexis' mother, kidnapping Michael Corinthos, plotting to get rid of Nikolas' parents, Stefan and Laura, brainwashing Lucky, and finally hiring an unscrupulous nanny for Nikolas' child are just a few of her demented acts. Even insane asylums can't hold her. She lurks in the shadows and always knows everyone's dirty secrets, then uses them to her own advantage.
Despite the belief that she was safely tucked away in yet another mental facility, Helena made an appearance at Luke and Laura's remarriage in 1996. One of Laura's last moments before returning to her catatonic state was spent face-to-face with the evil Helena Cassadine as she hexed their joining, once again. Who knows what the vengeful woman will do next.

On Cassadine Island, Dante bangs on the window and yells Lulu's name. He tries getting the fingerprint activated security lock to work. He drags the body of a guard over and tries his thumb but has no success. He bangs on the locking mechanism with a large tank. In the dining room Stavros tells Luke and Laura that Lulu is safe. Luke asks if Lulu has been frozen. Stavros replies, "It is as I said. I am her prince and she is my ice princess." Stavros talks about Lulu's stubbornness to submit to the life he was planning for her. Due to her hot-bloodedness, he had to cool her down. Laura softly speaks to Stavros pleading that if he ever loved her to take her to Lulu. Alarms go off. Stavros yells, "My ice princess," and runs off. Alarms are blaring as Stavros demands Dante stay away from her. He's in the middle of telling Dante he will regret something when Luke knocks him out. Laura rushes to the door and calls Lulu's name. Luke and Dante drag Stavros to the security panel and scan his thumb. The door opens and they rush inside. Laura is worried about the temperature and Luke covers Lulu with his coat. Stavros comes to. Luke holds him at gunpoint until they can leave the ice chamber. They lock Stavros in the chamber as he yells, "She's my ice princess!" Dante lays her on a table across from Helena. He tells Lulu she is not going to die as they try to warm her. Laura pleads for Lulu to breathe. Dante apologizes for not saving Lulu and holds her. Luke and Laura scream back at Stavros that he killed Lulu. Luke tells Laura not to stop him, but she activates the cryo-chamber herself with Stavros inside.
At GH Nikolas says his father has Lulu. Elizabeth thinks he's confused. Alexis tells Nikolas he needs rest and when he wakes up things will make sense. Nikolas explains he is making sense, Stavros is alive. He reminds Alexis how he helped Robert Scorpio, angering Helena. He went to Greece to appease his grandmother and found out she was hiding something. He stumbled across his father in a locked room. Helena recounts how she saved Stavros and tells Nikolas someday he will come back healthier and stronger than ever. Nikolas asked him one day what he was doing. Stavros mumbles something about his princess. Nikolas finds out Stavros saw Lulu in Turkey rescuing Luke and thought she was Laura. Nik tried to reason with Stavros and showed him pictures of Laura and Lulu together. Stavros knocked Nik out and disappeared. Helena caught Nikolas calling Lucky and ended up kidnapping Ethan. Nik reminds Alexis that Dante is now a rival of Stavros.
On Cassadine Island Luke and Laura are shocked when Stavros Cassadine enters the room. Stavros says he is back and better than ever as Luke and Laura stare on in disbelief. He's hurt by Laura's disdain and rejection at seeing him and tells the couple, "Reports of all of our deaths have been greatly exaggerated at one point or another." Luke grabs Stavros holding a dinner knife to his neck reminding him, "You've cheated death twice, now the third time's a charm." Laura stops Luke from stabbing him so they can find Lulu. Luke throws the knife down. Laura begs Stavros to tell them where Lulu is. He promises to share every last detail, but first they will dine. They don't eat and Stavros tells him a Cassadine wouldn't poison a guest. He reminds Laura he wouldn't harm her and they are a family. Laura starts offering to stay with him if that's what he wants. Luke tells her not to negotiate anything. Stavros rejects her, saying he's given up their future to hold onto their past. He adds, "Besides, I've met someone else, Lulu my princess." He tells them not to get the wrong idea; he's just been courting Lulu since he sent the Ice Princess. Stavros is pleased with the second gift he sent Lulu, the bear. He admits to shooting Nikolas but thinks Helena fed Dante to the sharks. Luke boasts eliminating Helena from his family's life. Stavros states he is taking care of his mother the same way she took care of him. He is putting her on ice, just like he did to his new ice princess.
In a secret location Dante knocks out one of his capturers and starts to make his way around eliminating others. He gains access to a private room filled with technical equipment. He finds Helena's body under a sheet with a cold icy stare. Dante backs away from her into a door and peers through its icy window. He utters, "Lulu?"
