The Resident Evil 6 Files: Helena Harper 2
Helena Harper doesn’t compromise her beliefs, and is not one to step aside and let others take charge. She does, however, have a tendency to let her emotions get the best of her. She was in the top of her class, and the agency’s first choice for the job, but officials were concerned that she would let her morals let in the way of her work. They were right.
While investigating a series of murders, Helena successfully found and apprehended the killer. In the process, she used excessive force on the suspect and was suspended from the agency. She claimed she had to shut the killer up because he was making threats in front of the victim’s family.
After her suspension period was over, she found herself in situations where she couldn’t maintain her self-control. When Deborah’s boyfriend became abusive, an enraged Helena shot and injured him. Her superiors were unwilling to overlook her gross misconduct, but they didn’t want to fire her, so they transferred her to the Secret Service.
During the attack on Tall Oaks, Helena was manipulated by Derek Simmons in his plan to assassinate President Adam Benford.
Because of the incident with her sister’s abusive boyfriend, Helena’s chances to join the DSO were ruined. Below is a report sent from one of Helena’s superiors to Hunnigan, who had supported the idea of Helena joining the DSO on account of her strong will.
As from today, Helena Harper is to report for duty and serve under the USSS. We will watch and see how she handles her new position, but as far as I can tell, I don’t see her lasting for much longer in this line of work.
I understand the anger she must have felt when her sister Deborah was put in the hospital by an abusive boyfriend, but no matter what the circumstances, firing on an unarmed civilian is unacceptable conduct for a government agent. Not only that, but she could also put those around her in danger. I am aware of her abilities and I know that you think well of her, but this is my decision.
