One thing could be said about the men and women in this particular branch of the O'Hara Family Tree in Toobworld - the men always found the most beautiful women to marry, and the women were always as beautiful as their mothers.

Helen Juliet O'Hara was the apple of her father's eye, and she idolized him as well. When it came time to go to college, Helen chose to study criminology in order to follow in her father's footsteps. Chief O'Hara offered to pay her tuition and living expenses, but Helen was determined to make it on her own.

Accepted by the University of Metropolis, Helen moved away from her parents in Nebraska to live on campus at UMetro where she also pledged to the "Tri-Psi" sorority.

But Helen was not completely cut off from her family in another state - her second cousin Kate McShane, born in the same year, came to the University of Metropolis from New York City in order to get her pre-law undergraduate degree.

(Helen's grandfather and Kate's grandmother were siblings. In fact, Kate's Dad, Pat McShane [another cop in the family!] was an identical cousin to Helen's Uncle Seamus. Grandfather McShane and Grandmother O'Hara were both right off the boat from Ireland, which was why Pat McShane, Uncle Seamus O'Hara, Timothy O'Hara, Sr., and Police Chief Miles O'Hara all had a touch of the Brogue their own selves.)

When Helen failed to secure a scholarship, it was Cousin Kate who suggested that Helen could make money by modeling. She had seen a want ad in the Daily Planet submitted by the local department store in the Winfred-Louder chain.  They were looking for some young lovely to be the face of the store in their advertising.

(Helen always trusted in Kate's advice because she knew her cousin had no reason to betray her in any way. Kate - who was named after an Aunt Katherine who later served in the Navy during World War II - certainly was never going to be chasing after the same boys Helen might be interested in, since her... inclinations lay in a different direction.)

TOOBWORLD NOTE: The pictures of the University of Metropolis come from the TV dimension in which 'The West Wing' and 'Smallville' resided.  But this does not mean the University couldn't also exist in the main Toobworld of Earth Prime-Time.
