A 4th grade girl that lives in an unnamed city with her friends and a boy named Arnold. While she is rude and often pushy towards Arnold, she is secretly in love with him and carries a heart-shaped locket with his picture in it. She refers to this locket when she is lonely or in an emotional crises. Her best friend is a girl named Phoebe Heyerdahl. She is most easily recognizable with her unibrow, and pink dress and bow. She lives with her parents, Big Bob and Mirium Pataki. She also owns an unnamed Monitor Lizard that is only seen once in "Helga's Parrot," it is assumed that the lizard stays in her room but it was never confirmed.

Helga is known to be sassy and sarcastic when speaking to others, but deep down has a big heart and often helps Arnold in sticky situations without letting him know she's there. Dispite what she might say about Lila, Helga actually enjoys her company and confesses that she likes her in "New Girl," because of this they sometimes hang out together after school.

While Helga seems to be in control of her life around the other kids, she is often neglected at home by her innatentive mother and her workaholic father.

She has an older sister named, Olga who comes to visit from college on her breaks in the year. Her sister is considered to be the perfect daughter in her parent's eyes and because of this, Helga is often ignored and sometimes even referred to as "Olga" by Big Bob. Olga admits to Helga that she is jealous of the fact that Helga doesn't have to be perfect all the time and after this confession, the two sisters get along better.

Only three people know of her crush on Arnold. Phoebe is revealed to know about it in "Helga Sleepwalks." Helga told the school psychologist Dr. Bliss in "Helga On The Couch," and in "School Play" she tells Lila in an attempt to play Juliet with Arnold playing Romeo in the classic Shakespeare play. Lila admits that she had a feeling that Helga liked Arnold and willingly lets Helga take her place in the play commenting that it's "Oh so sweet."
