Marie-Hélène was born to a middle-class French-speaking family in Montréal in the early 1950s. She was a strong supporter of Québec's independence when she was mortal, and the Embrace has not change that.
Marie-Hélène is a dreamer and a rebel. She has a burning hatred for Anglophones and refuse to speak anything but French, even though she is fluent in English. Marie-Hélène's dreams for an independent Québec command her attention, leaving little interest for Montréal's Sabbat power structure.
