Helga Von Vogelweide, codenamed Eishexe ("Ice Witch"), holds dominion over cold and ice using her weapon Maxwell's wand and her "pet" "Winterfrau" (an "Artificial Ghost") created by herself. She is a highly ranked member of the Rosenkreuz, having the same rank as Dietrich von Lohengrin. Helga is in love with Cain and becomes jealous over Isaak "monopolizing" him. She conspires with the Neumann brothers to kill Isaak and Dietrich and seize their power, but Isaak learns of the plans and kills her.

Her arcana in Thores' tarot cards is The Rod, later changed to The Batons.


Helga is derived from Old Norse heilagr - "holy", "blessed".

Walther von der Vogelweide (c. 1170 – c. 1230) is the most celebrated of the Middle High German lyric poets. Vogelweide is of Dutch origin meaning "a gathering place or preserve of birds".
