Helr'ven was a Stereb girl, who lived in the underground network of passages beneath the planet Prakith.


When the Galactic Empire came to Prakith, the Thaarke Corporation took control of the Geddis mine and secretly captured a number of Stereb, to work there as slaves. After the Stereb sealed off their tunnels, Helr'ven was stranded in the mine and was among those captured. She was given the job of caring for eight wounded Stereb, as there was no-one else available to do so.
