Kynda Helsi is a wolf and member of Salsola. She is the daughter of Siv Helsi and a foreign, unknown male, and younger half-sister to Draugr Helsi. She is a völva (witch-woman) known for exceptional leatherwork and talent as a falconer. Practically since birth Kynda was raised alongside Loki Helsi and Violeta Rose Soul, the children of her mother's mate Itachi Lykoi. The three remained close throughout childhood though grew more distanced as adults, though maintain good strong (if long-distance) relationships.

Currently, Kynda lives at Fort Preble, Salsola's Portland Outpost with her mate Hugleikr Silfr. She regularly works with her daughter and informal apprentice Reykja Helsi, who moved to the Outpost alongside her mate.

When in her Optime form, Kynda has a short, asymmetrical bob cut.
