Oh, you've got a line? Hey guys, she has a line. Superheroes have a line. Teen Titans have a line. We don't give a fuck!— Queen of Fables to Harley Quinn.
Queen of Fables is a character on the T.V. series, Harley Quinn and was a recurring antagonist of season 1.
Harley Quinn used to look up to her as a role model, but realized she took things too far after witnessing her mass-murdering habits when they teamed up.
Queen of Fables is an African-American female wearing golden armor, consisting of a chest plate, tall necklace-like jewelry, golden circular earrings, thin golden lines on the top of her boots, and what is either partially golden hair or a crown.
She wears light purple, high-heel boots that almost reach her knees, pinkish-red leggings, and hot pink long gloves that cover almost the entirety of her arms. She wears a light purple headdress-like clothing which appears to be an extension of either her neck jewelry or dark purple cape, also cut into the shape of a large leaf.
She has pinkish-red hair above the golden portion that seems to be made to look similar to a flame. She wears hot pink, shiny lipstick and has a small heart red heart on her right cheek near her eye, which seems to be a tattoo although it could be a mark of sorts.
Queen of Fables is the first female supervillain who almost destroyed Gotham in the '80s. She was a powerful sorceress and fed up with her position not among the male supervillains, she single-handily turned Gotham City into an evil forest, using her magic to pull characters from the pages of storybooks until she had a whole army at her command. Unfortunately, her plans were stopped by the Justice League and she was sealed in a U.S. Master Tax Guide Book instead of being sent to Arkham Asylum. She has been acting as a tax consultant for over 30 years until she was released from the U.S. Master Tax Guide Book.
"So You Need a Crew?"
Poison Ivy told Harley Quinn about the Queen of Fables after Harley tried to recruit her to her crew. Ivy insisted there was a "glass ceiling" for female supervillains and told her how The Queen of Fables was a sorceress who conjured an entire army. When Harley asked what happened to her, Ivy gave her a card and told her to ask her herself. Harley went to Taxes 4 Free where she met the Queen of Fables who told her how the Justice League came after her and her crew and instead of throwing her into Arkham Asylum like any male villain they had Zatanna Zatara imprison her inside a U.S. Tax Code book. She made a point of the double standards when it comes to male and female villains, saying she couldn't even get a crew so she had to create her own.
This gave Harley the inspiration to seek out villains who were downtrodden and disrespected, desperate enough to work for her.
She was killed by Harley Quinn with a bat, which decapitated her.
She's heavily implied to be a sociopath. Superficially, she's charming and spirited but is quick to reveal that she has no second thoughts about using mass murder as a solution to literally any problem, and not caring if other criminals are horrified. She has no remorse or conscience, openly calling herself a villain. Fables also displays a serious lack of empathy; besides not caring for those she murders, she seems unable to realize how her fellow supervillains could be disturbed by her actions or see her actions as rightfully excessive.
She is a chain smoker. She apparently finds Superman sexy. Harley created a Tinder page for her to "get her fuck on".
- She taught the class "Evil 101".
- She is ruthless and cold-blooded, being by far the second most evil villain in the series, sometimes surpassing even the standards of the Legion of Doom due to her "destroying to bloodline" policy. Ivy has said that Fables is "cable bad" and is a person who definitely belongs in Arkham Asylum for life.
- Her insistence that she needed to kill everyone at the family reunion to prevent any survivors from coming back to get revenge is proven right when Jason Praxis does exactly that.
- When Harley states she has a line she won't cross, the Queen of Fables responds that the Legion of Doom has no such standards. Harley's attempts to join the Legion do nothing but prove her point.
- The Justice League's willingness to throw Harley's entire crew into the Phantom Zone over a reasonable (but wrong) hunch with no trial or even much of an argument lends a lot of credence to her claim that them trapping her in the book was at least an overreaction.
- She is the first major villain to die on the show.
- There's some debate over whether or not she's truly dead as she was seen to be able to still talk after she had been decapitated. Albeit, the human head only stays alive for 10 seconds after decapitation.
