The Winter Queen (Greater Epic Boss)
rating: +2+x

By Gold & Apple Inc

Grand Mistress of all things icy, from wind to hearts, the Winter Queen is unique among her sisters in that she has predicted inevitable mutual annihilation among the four and embraced a strategy of preemptive but subtle hostilities that she has dubbed "The Cold War" to ensure her own eventual victory. She has far more spies and agents-provocateur than warriors defending her domain, but then the starkly beautiful natural vistas of her domain require little in the way of defense. She notably has the weakest personal magical reserves and physical durability out of all the Seasonal Queens, so she prefers to operate through intermediaries and rarely appears in person. She is a superhuman genius trapster and tactician, however, more patient and subtle than the vast bulk of faeriekind, and her Subterranean Ice Labyrinth is one of the truly epic dungeons of the multiverse.
