Helen of Troy was the fairest woman in all of ancient Greece, who found herself displaced in time and space.
Helen found her self transported through time from Troy to a Warner Brothers soundstage in 1937 Hollywood due to the Legends having fractured time. The soundstage was dressed for a film featuring the legends based on Helen. Due to her affect on men and that Hedy Lamarr, the actress cast in the role of Helen, was late, the film's produce put Helen into the role.
Without external intervention, Helen's presence in 1937 would have led to gangland style violence breaking out between movie studios. Altered to this, the Legends arrived some time after Helen intent of collecting her and returning her to Troy in 1253 B.C. When the arrived, Helen was leaving Warner Brothers, frustrated with the conflict her presence was causing among the men working on the film, for another studio. Shortly after this, she took on Damien Darhk as her agent.
When Sara Lance, Amaya Jiwe, and Zari Tomaz finally persuade Helen to come with the Legends, she confesses that she is tired of men fighting over her and sequestering her. She was also amazed by the confidence and positions of power the three held, especially Sarah as captain of the Waverider. When Sarah later informed her that they were going to have to return her Troy, she beseeched them not to condemn her to that fate. Sarah was not moved and instructed Zari to take the Jumper and return Helen to her proper time and place.
Zari though was unwilling to put Helen back into that untenable situation. She did take Helen back to 1253 B.C. in the Jumper, but not to Troy. She had checked the Waverider's history records and noted that Helen had disappeared in the middle of the Trojan War, and it did not affect the outcome. With this in mind, she bent history slight by taking Helen to Themyscira in 1253 B.C. This allowed Helen to live in a society where she would be treated as an equal and would not trigger male violence.
Later in her life, Helen was one of four individuals contacted by and trans-temporal request for help sent by Zari from Salvation in 1874. She joined Ava Sharpe, Jefferson Jackson, and Kuasa in using Time Bureau technology to join the Legends in defeating Mallus.
