Helena Pierce is the Governor of the town of New Haven. She lives in the house near the entrance of the town. There is a New-U Station, and Scooter's Vehicle Station nearby. The house is the one which a person wearing a beer hat is leaning against.
Helena Pierce has been on Pandora for a while and is committed to protecting the people of New Haven. She is not happy with Dahl's actions of abandoning Pandora and releasing all of the convict labor. She is opposed to the Crimson Lance's goal to convert the town into one of their own, and does not get along with Commandant Steele.
She has an "If you broke it, you fix it" approach to life, as evidenced by the numerous quests the player gets to clean up their mess.
Helena has been seriously injured some time in her past as evident by her prosthetic left arm and significant scarring seen on the left side of her face. Her mechanical arm was stolen temporarily by Tannis, in order to convince her to allow the player access to one of the other areas.
Helena Pierce is one of the main mission providers in the town of New Haven. When the player first meets her, she is not friendly, and tasks the player to fix up the power in the mission Power to the People. After the player does this, she becomes more friendly, and gives the player work to do in the line of protecting the citizens of New Haven. She will direct you to Tannis, once you complete Power to the People.
"Yes, did you need something?"
"I hope you've been avoiding the negative element around here."
"Hmm....what can I do for you?"
"Well well...looks like you fit right in."
(On E (Talk))
"I guess Pandora is the perfect place to hide the Vault- remote, harsh, and no one would have believed it - not even me." - after Seek Out Tannis
"I hope whatever is in the vault (sic) can be traded for supplies." - after Seek Out Tannis
"This vault (sic) discovery could be the very thing we need to revitalize this settlement." - after Seek Out Tannis
"The Crimson Lance...another lot of outsiders...this doesn't bode well."
"We cannot trust these Lance Soldiers until we know their intentions."
"Nobody brings this many soldiers unless they think they'll need them."
"What could the Crimson Lance want here?"
(When Player Leaves)
"Watch your back out there."
"That's all for the time being."
"See you soon."
