Trained as a surgeon, Helen didn’t have much time to raise her son Michael, who started acting out to gain attention. He was caught stealing one day, and sent to the Skybox. He was later chosen as one of the 100. Helen monitored his progress from the Ark, via his wristband. When the time came for the Ark to land, Helen looked forward to the day that she would reunite with Michael and have a chance to make up for lost time.
When the Ark denizens finally met up with the 100, Helen asked to see her son. That was when she learned that he had been captured by the Mountain Men and killed for his bone marrow, so that the selfish Mountain Men could overcome their vulnerability to radiation.
News like this would have crushed the spirit of any mother, but Helen has seen death more often than most; often despite her best efforts on the operating table. So she didn’t withdraw or become a useless pile of blubbering goo. Instead, she focused her rage toward the Mountain Men, who clearly had no concept of respect for other races beside their own. She vowed to take her revenge on any MM doctors or council members, since it was clearly their decision to butcher her baby.
Because she has lost her own child, Helen has an almost pathological need to keep other children safe and healthy. And to Helen, anyone under the age of 30 is a child. She will go out of her way to protect a child, particularly the rest of the 100. If only these babies had had a mother to watch over them, maybe they wouldn’t have run afoul of the Grounders or the Mountain Men.
