"Hélène", real name unknown, is one of the highest-ranking members of The Twelve.


Early LifeEdit

At some point in the life, she was recruited for The Twelve and rose through the ranks.

Meeting with DashaEdit

Hélène met with Dasha at a swimming pool in Barcelona. Having kept tabs on Villanelle, Hélène had found out that Villanelle had pursued Eve Polastri in London. Dasha claimed to have everything under control and claimed Villanelle was just skittish because of all the changes. Hélène told her "skittish" was unacceptable and reminded her that she wouldn't be going back to her beloved Russia until they allowed her to. Hélène ordered Dasha to get Villanelle working without any extracurricular crap. Dasha suggested she kill Eve but Hélène forbade her from doing that as it would cause too many problems. She told Dasha to drive a wedge between the two women instead.

Villanelle's PromotionEdit

After making Villanelle's promotion official, Hélène finally meet Villanelle face to face after having kept tabs on her for a long time. She wanted to personally inform her about her promotion. They drank champagne to celebrate and Hélène then gave Villanelle her next assignment: killing a Romanian minister. Villanelle was upset that she would still be doing the same work rather than giving out orders. Hélène didn't understand where she got that wrong idea and pointed out they had met all her demands for material perks. She told Villanelle to enjoy Romania and left.


Seeing as how she's working for the Twelve, she has a cold and ruthless side that she knows well how to hide from her family.




She has a daughter, who is often looked after by Hélène's mother while Hélène works. Hélène's daughter doesn't get to see her a lot, causing her to play tricks to get her mother's attention.



She has been keeping tabs on Villanelle for a long time. Villanelle being one of the Twelve's greatest assets, Hélène appears to have a certain fondness for her as she personally oversaw her promotion and wanted to tell Villanelle about it in person.


She is one the highest-ranking members of The Twelve, overseeing Dasha and arranging Villanelle's promotion to Keeper, which is one of the highest known functions within the organization.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • She presumably is French as she speaks French with her mother and daughter. However, it's not unlikely that her French identity is part of her fake identity.
  • While her exact rank within the Twelve remains undisclosed, producers have confirmed that she is the highest within the organization that we have seen.[1]


Memorable QuotesEdit

Do you know why I love you Villanelle? Because you're an agent of chaos. And I love chaos. Chaos disrupts. It rips apart and starts again. It's like a forest fire. It burns, it kills. It's monstrous, but it's beautiful.

You wouldn't be able to, by the way. Kill me before I kill you. You're a child, you have no idea what you're dealing with.
