    HELENA CASSADINE'S HISTORY

    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.
