Helene is a rather eccentric traveling Dascean merchant the party met while in Xien La. Though it has been a few years since the end of the Long Dark, Helene firmly believes that a Second Dark will one day come. This time, she will be prepared, and help others prepare. As such, she trades in foodstuffs and other survival goods. While in Xien La to trade for rice and re-stock her storage unit in town, she visited an establishment called the Pink Pagoda, having heard good reviews of their entertainment and food. The crew met her as she was ordering from the Pagoda's menu...samples of the whole menu, in fact. She shared her meal with them, as well as some interesting survival advice.
