Heloise was meant to be a serial killer who was stopped by police via a headshot (hence the scar), and was in charge of being Jimmy's torturer but took a liking to him instead. While these darker elements were re-worked into more just implications than ever stated outright, perhaps it explains a lot about her personalty.
