Cerberus Daily News Wiki


To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible we must be truthful.
-Edward R. Murrow

Helena Mathioudakis was born on the island of Crete in the Mediterranean, on Earth. She was a reporter working for the Future Content Corporation. Her extranet handle, "Muckracker" or simply, "Muck", was based upon a portmanteau of "Muckraker" and "cracker" that her father gave to her in high school.

Helena interviewed several members of the CDN community, often broadcasting these interviews on her show, Dialogue. One of the subjects she interviewed, Vohkaidin Knox, asked her out, and the two began a successful relationship that eventually resulted in marriage.

At one point, Muck pursued an investigation into strange goings-on that made her integral to the events of Who Goes There 2.
