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.

Liz shows up at Wyndemere and finds Nikolas arguing with Helena. She informs them that Jake is out of surgery. Liz explains the device is out of Jake's brain and demands to know what they were talking about. Nik starts apologizing for everything and offers to pay Jake's medical bills. The nurse explains they may know his identity after all. She thanks the prince for his help and leaves. Helena isn't worried about Jason. Nikolas calls in some goons to escort her out, once and for all. Rubbing his hands together, he explains that he now controls the entire Cassadine fortune. He's sending her to the island for the rest of her life. "You're becoming worthy of the family name," she says. The prince never wants to hear her rate his performance as a Cassadine again. She still has faith in him and Spencer.
At Wyndemere, Helena informs Nikolas that Jake is Jason Morgan. Nikolas plans to tell Sam the truth, but Helena forbids him to do so and threatens to reveal he rigged the election. However she’d rather it not come to that. She says that if Jake should remember who he is then he will side with the Quartermaines, along with his nine percent shares in ELQ. When combined the percentage Michael and the others hold it would make it statistically impossible for them to take over ELQ. She asks Nikolas to convince the other distant Quartermaines to side with him and give him their shares. Nikolas feels guilty keeping Jason from his wife and child, but Helena says Jake has no idea who he is so he doesn’t miss his family. Nikolas thinks of all who loved Jason and asks how he is supposed to lie to them, to Elizabeth. Elizabeth walks in as Nikolas says this.
