In this paper, we give a definition of harmonic curvature functions in terms of V-n and we define a new kind of a slant helix. We call this new slant helix a V-n-slant helix in n-dimensional Euclidean space En and define it by using new harmonic curvature functions. We also de fine a vector field D which we call a Darboux vector field of a Vn-slant helix in n-dimensional Euclidean space En and we give a new characterization as:
