Helen Wheels[1] is a trucker living at Boulder Dome in 2253.


Helen was born in Adytum, and learned about cars as a child (she was born inside of a car). She is beautiful, and educated by the Followers of the Apocalypse. She fell in love with Pierce and is a former jet addict. Helen is wanted by NCR for hijacking, from the time she aided Pierce in hijacking for drugs. Helen agreed to be a caravan driver to smuggle the grad students to Boulder. On the way, she fell in love with Eddie, mainly because of his truck and because of his love for her kids. If she sees the PC as a protector, she'll come onto him. Helen came to the Dome in 2250 with Eddie Galenski.
