Helena is Nedar's daughter. Besides that, and the fact that Egeus later in the play calls Nedar "old Nedar," we aren't told anything about this person.
Nedar is Helena's father, "Made love to Nedar's daughter, Helena," (line 109). As we have already seen with Hermia is Act I, daughters are seen as their father's possessions, which Helena's introduction in this line helps illustrate.
