Helgad is the leader of the Nymfas. She is affectionately called Nanang by her tribe - this is a title for the mothers in the Nymfa tribe.
Helgad has a mother-figure personality when raising Deshna/Luna and also she is kind to other Encantados. She is respectful to the Diwatas of Lireo.
Helgad saw the infant Deshna, whom the Nymfas carrying. She subsequently decides to raise Deshna as one of her kind.
The nymfas were saved by Alena, who heard that Deshna was Hagorn's daughter. Alena took Deshna away, intending to return her to LilaSari. But Cassiopea warned Alena not to do it, so she returned the child to Helgad. Cassiopea foresaw that if Helgad raised Deshna, Deshna would turn up good.
During the war between the Hadezars and Lireo and her allies, Helgad christened Deshna a new name as part of her initiation in joining the Nymfas - Luna. She told the nymfas that they were safer there, despite the presence of gargos.
After many years, Helgad did not tell Deshna about her true heritage, eventually dismissing her curious questions on why is she different compared to other nymfas. She scolded one of the nymfas when the latter called Luna's real name. Despite peace being restored at Encantadia, Helgad did not dare to go back to the plains. This is out of fear that Deshna will find out about her true heritage and leave her for good.
Helgad is stabbed to death by LilaSari when the latter sacrifice herself to save a Nymfa. Quina has witnessed the murder of her biological mother. Gilas and Deshna found her lifeless body as she grieves over her Nanang's death. Deshna swears revenge against Helgad's killer, unknown to her that it was her biological mother LilaSari.
Helgad can climb up to the tallest trees as a form of hiding from the incoming invaders. This is one of the skills of the Nymfas.
According to Cassiopea's clairvoyance, Helgad is a skillful mentor to Deshna, where she teaches her the Enchan script.
She has a new daughter named Quina.
