'''Helena Mossman'''Half-Life 2 leak|''Half-Life 2'' leak files is a character cut from ''Half-Life 2''. She is the predecessor of Judith Mossman.''Half-Life 2 Raising the Bar''

*Helena Mossman's model shows her as blond, with a purple coat and purple trousers. Her original hairdo reinforced the decision that the ''Half-Life'' characters would have all short or constrained hair - the alternative to what Valve artists call "helmet hair". Furthermore, as the team started working with Michelle Forbes in the voice sessions, Mossman became much more sympathetic and nuanced, moving farther from the personality type for whom this model was originally designed. Mossman's model in the ''Half-Life 2'' leak files is very similar to the retail one; what remains of the original model are only its textures.

*Helena Mossman was to be the director of Kraken Base and was to be met at the start of the game, when Gordon was teleported from Kleiner's Lab to Kraken Base. Like in the retail version, the teleportation would fail and Gordon would instead go to Black Mesa East the scenes|Eli's lab, and reach Kraken Base much later in the game with Odell, after the ''Borealis (cut ship)|Borealis'' chapter.

*Sound files located in the folder "/temp/alyx/" in the playable Development of Half-Life 2 game|''Half-Life 2'' leak files give some information about a prototype of ''Half-Life 2''{{'}}s final Citadel scene. Alyx can be heard saying "Let go of me, bitch!", referring to Mossman, and also lectures the Consul about him being "just another cog in the Combine machinery". As confirmed in concept art seen in ''Raising the Bar'', it hints that Mossman's betrayal was decided very early by the developers.
