Hel is 700 years old, but she looks great for her age! I guess being a Cybernetic Human pays off.
Silicon Knights sent out these new screens of the villain Hel, from Too Human, along with a handy profile on her that gives all her juiciest details.
All of this information represents Hel before Helheim and the surrounding provinces of Niflheim were granted independence in exchange for material dependencies. Additional information gleaned since this date has been added where possible.
Age, chronologically: 700+ (estimate, no existing records)
Age, apparent: 30-35
Race: Cybernetic Human. Unknown gene stock, possibly manipulated Aesir.
Blood Type: Originally ARH+, now probably contaminated with pathogens and other toxins.
Implants: None on record.
Our intelligence gathering efforts have resulted in little to add. Hel suffers from some kind of wasting disease and she has experimented upon herself in attempts to cure it. Interrogated technicians say that large portions of her body have been replaced with cybernetics to stem the disease or to replace areas that are lost. Whether their purpose is strictly medical or offensive/defensive in nature is impossible to tell.
â€¢Unknown, but immune system is seriously dilapidated if disease is present.
â€¢Probably engineered neurologically for human-machine interactions.
Hel is the daughter of Loki and Administrator for Helheim, a newly formed government formed through secession from the Aesir and Midgard. Claiming an independent state, Helheim entered a treaty with the Aesir called “The Pact of the Fallen”. In return for their independence, Helheim would receive the corpses of all natural deaths from Midgard. These corpses would be rendered at Helheim for the recollection of useful materials â€“ organs, minerals, gene stock, etc.
Hel’s relationship to Loki is not well understood, although Loki claims she is his daughter. Loki’s Aesir wife, Sigyn, long destroyed in battle claimed otherwise. Her origins are dubious at best and although Loki has had dealings with the Children of the YMIR, it is not known how Hel was created. It is known only that when ODIN discovered her existence that he emphatically demanded that she be removed from Midgard. Loki complied, but has never forgotten, nor forgiven, the exile of his daughter.
