"I'm the most beautiful being in all of the universes!"
Heles is a human-like woman described as being extraordinarily beautiful. She is a very slender yet curvaceous in frame with light brown skin, large green eyes (along with dark turquoise eye shadow), red lipstick, and black hair with gold beads at the end. Her design resembles a mixture ofand . Her clothes have the same style as the other Gods of Destruction. She wears what appears to be ancient Egyptian apparel: a headdress, a dark turquoise sash, and a white skirt.
She has been described as disliking anything that she considers ugly. She is also shown to care for life and existence, meaning that, like Belmod, she does not tolerate any form of evil, being shocked by the decision of her superiors to annihilate eight of the twelve universes in the Tournament of Power, even calling it horrendous. Noticeably, despite her duties being of destruction, Heles appears to be rather benevolent, showing genuine compassion for her warriors, and showed extreme disgust at Frieza's savage methods of combat. She is also shown to have strong confidence in the warriors of her universe, as she frequently brags about their fighting prowess and combat spirit. Unlike most other Gods of Destruction, Heles does not berate the failures of one of her subordinates and does not appear to have any emotional reaction to when one of her team members loses.
Heles is not without her own self-indulgence, as she has various servants tend to her care. Also, viewing herself as the most beautiful being in all universes she enjoys having her servants regularly regard her as such. Despite the fact she tends to destroy things she considers ugly, her universe still has the second highest mortal level of the eight Universes participating in the Tournament of Power, and sixth overall, showing that her management of Universe 2 to be at least fairly good.
Noticeably, she is the only God of Destruction who has come to admire Goku, although it could merely be because she finds him quite handsome, and put all value based on appearance, and like Mule was surprised that Beerus was not invited to the Gods of Destruction summit, even asking Champa why he did not invite his brother, showing she had no grudge against Universe 7 for being the cause of the tournament. Despite this, she would later on openly express that she considered Goku to be a threat to Universe 2's survival in the Tournament of Power, and did not hesitate to order her remaining fighters to gang up on the wounded Saiyan.
Heles is also flexible when the situation demands it. For example, when her team was reduced to only 3 members, she told the remaining members to prioritize survival over appearances. Once her team lost in the Tournament of Power, Heles "gracefully" and "beautifully" accepted her fate as she and the rest of Universe 2 were erased.
After the winner of the Tournament of Power, Android 17, wished all of the erased universes back into existence, Heles stood with Pell and Team Universe 2 and cried tears of joy as they were all given a hero's welcome back on their homeworld.
She is just as flamboyant about love and appearances as her subordinates often doing poses as she helps Kamikaze Fireballs with their transformation.
In the manga, at some point in time, Heles participated in the All Universe Hide and Seek Tournament held by Zeno. But when Beerus hid and fell asleep for fifty years during the tournament, it had to be canceled. She and the other gods had to calm Zeno down, who was furious. Since then Heles and the other Gods of Destruction have felt disdain towards Beerus.

In the manga, Heles was being pampered by several servants when she received a summons from the Grand Minister. Upon arrival at Zeno's Palace, she is shocked by the presence of a second Zeno. She is further shocked when all Gods of Destruction are asked to participate in an exhibition match. She teams up with the other gods at the beginning of the battle to fight Beerus, who all gods held responsible for the situation.
When Champa called the other Gods of Destruction whose universes were participating in the Tournament of Power, she expressed admiration for Goku. As the tournament began, Heles saw Brianne and her teammates being knocked away by Narirama's extendable arm spin attack. Afterward, she presented the Kamikaze Fireballs' transformation and is furious when it is interrupted. She explained Fireballs' abilities. When Rozie is about to be knocked out, she is calmed down by Pell, who says that with maidens come knights.
Later, Heles is horrified to witness Frieza's violent attack against Jimeze, even thinking that Frieza killed him at one point. After Frieza kicked Jimeze out of the ring, Heles wondered how someone as evil as Frieza could exist as she stared at him. Frieza noticed and gave her an evil, cruel and unrepentant smile, which bothered Heles even more.
Heles is then amazed as she witnesses Goku activating Ultra Instinct in his fight with Jiren. Later, she and Pell attempt to have two of their warriors fuse using Pell's Potara earrings. She is disappointed that the plan failed but notes that the destruction of the Potara was still beautiful.
After Goku exhausted himself from fighting Kefla, Heles took advantage of his vulnerability and ordered her universe to gang up on Goku. She comforts Brianne after she gets knocked out of the tournament. She then marvels at Zirloin, Rabanra, and Zarbuto's transformation and inheritance of the Kamikaze Fireballs' powers. She is further amazed when the three use Pretty Black Hole, a technique that not even the Kamikaze Fireballs could use. Upon the remainder of her team being knocked out, Heles instructs the team to accept their fate with grace. She joins her team in saying farewell to everyone before the Zenos erased them.
Heles, along with the rest of Universe 2 are revived when Android 17 uses the Super Dragon Balls to restore the erased universes in the tournament. Heles is seen crying tears of joy with Pell and Team Universe 2 as they are being cheered on by a crowd of people.

As with all Gods of Destruction, Heles is incredibly powerful, only being surpassed in her Universe by her angel/attendant Sour.
In the manga, during the match of the Destroyers, Heles was damaged by Belmod's energy cards. She was able to pierce Liquiir's arm with her bow and arrow, although Liquiir was fast enough to anticipate her arrow. Near the end of the match, she was one of the defeated Destroyers as only Quitela and Beerus were left standing, while Belmod was faking his defeat.

- Jerez's name seems to be taken from "jerez", the Spanish name for sherry. However, in the manga, and the Funimation dub of the anime, her name is Heles, which was directly taken from the German light beer, Helles. The official subtitled version of the anime also confirms her name, Jerez, to be taken from the light beer, Helles, as all Gods of Destruction, including their attendants, are named after alcoholic drinks.
- She is one of the two Gods of Destruction who was jointly designed by both Akira Toriyama and Toyotarō, the other one being Belmod. The two are coincidentally universal counterparts.
- Additionally she and Belmod are both Gods of Destruction associated with public superhero teams of their universes, Kamikaze Fireballs (a group of Magical Girls) and Pride Troopers (a team of superheroes whom Belmod was previously a member of in the manga), both of which have a habit of posing, which lead Pride Trooper leader Top to come to the Kamikaze Fireballs defense when Android 17 interrupts their posing.
- It is unknown if the Kamikaze Fireballs act as Heles' Agents of Destruction, like the Pride Troopers do for Belmod (as they destroy evil threats).
- In the manga, Heles is shown to have archery skills. Ironically, in the anime Super Ribrianne can also utilize archery through her Heart Arrow of Love, Love Storm Arrow, and Ribrianne Super Amore Shower techniques.
- Additionally, Heles' God of Destruction's Banquet technique in Super Dragon Ball Heroes, she fires blasts that resemble a cross between peacock feathers and arrow heads.
- Heles is the only known female God of Destruction; however, it is worth taking note of, that prior to the erasure of Universes 13-18, there might have been other female Gods of Destruction.
- Since the creation and addition of the Saría the female God of Destruction Elite avatar from Super Dragon Ball Heroes Heles is currently no longer the only female God of Destruction, though Heles is still the only Goddess of Destruction that is canon to the main series as Saría only appears as part of Super Dragon Ball Heroes and related media.
- Heles has a tendency of substituting the words "good" and "bad" with "beautiful" and "ugly" respectively.
- Heles, Champa, and Mule are the only Gods of Destruction to smile at their demise.
