|This article is about the character within the Skylanders Academy continuity. You may be looking for the one canon to the main storyline.|
The Golden Queen is devious and resourceful, using her beauty and words to her advantage. She will fake interest if it benefits her and betray even old friends to gain more power without hesitating. She appears to worry about her self image, as she is seen excercising at several points of the show. Despite her influnce and leadership, the queen is prone to losing her temper when questioned, even when she is fully at fault for the mistake.
This woman’s got the golden touch... literally. Not only is the Golden Queen made of pure gold, but this royal evil-doer can turn anything and anyone into the glittering metal. Friend or foe – get on her bad side and be prepared to end up as the world’s most expensive paperweight. It takes a special kind of monster to be the leader of the Doom Raiders, the Skylands' all-star roster of the baddest baddies, and Golden Queen is more than qualified for the job.
The Golden Queen can transform anyone or anything into gold by either her touch or by blasting gold energy waves. She can also levitate herself and others.
Before Golden Queen's arrest, she was friends with the sorceress Kaossandra, and they fought together before a mysterious falling out.
Season 1The Golden Queen first appeared in the series in the episode The Hole Truth, as an inmate of Cloudcracker Prison alongside her fellow Doom Raiders, Wolfgang, Chompy Mage, Chef Pepper Jack, Broccoli Guy, and later Dreamcatcher, who first joins the Raiders after her reckless insults at Broccoli Guy. After being briefly introduced to Kaos and Glumshanks in their special sector, the sorcerer attempted to woo the Golden Queen in the open air area, and despite his lack of sucess, the golden statue took note of his easily gained loyalty and began to scheme the gang's escape.
The Queen and her Doom Raiders formulated a plan to trick the new team of Skylanders into sending them to the confinement area of the prison called "The Hole" where they can combine their powers to create a wormhole and escape, while using Kaos as a distraction. In her part, Golden Queen intimidated Spyro, Eruptor, and Stealth Elf into sending her to the confinement, where her fellow villains were sent before her. When Kaos was begged to be sent in as well, he discovered the group ready to create the wormhole and leave without him, and attempted to barter his escape by offering his knowledge about the Core of Light. With a new greedy conviction, the Golden Queen went back on her disinterest, and allowed him to help them.
Upon realizing their mistake, Team Spyro sent themselves to The Hole to stop the Doom Raiders' escape, expertly dodging the villains' onslaught and forcing them to flee before the wormhole could close. Despite their usage of the freezing badges however, the Doom Raiders were trapped on the other side with Kaos stuck halfway, and they kicked the sorcerer out to leave freely.In Space Invaders, the gang moved to Kaos' Guest Castle to lay low, but while her underlings were left on the small room, Golden Queen encountered Kaossandra after she heard the commotion and was invited into the main castle. No longer interested in Kaos' scuffle with the rest of the gang, she stayed in the fortress for some time to catch up with conversations with her old "friend" and play card games.
Sometime later, in Beard Science, she took an interest in fur and hair, and took Wolfgang out on a date, inviting Kaos so he would know "what a real man looks like". Her mockery and the day's misfortunes encouraged Kaos to cast a spell to obtain the perfect hair, and overnight, the spell steals Master Eon's beard. The next day, the Golden Queen dropped Wolfgang immediately for the evil sorcerer over his new "hair" cut, and they left for a day and night of leisure in various locations. Returning to his castle, Kaos proposed for her over a table of Glumshanks' finest cuisine, and she gladly accepted to stay forever with the magical beard.
The next day, the three left to a small island for a picnic served willingly by the troll butler, but crossed paths with Master Eon, who left the Academy after being left without purpose. He and Kaos fought over the beard, and once the sorcerer lost it, Golden Queen greedily pushed him and Glumshanks into attacking the headmaster for the magical hair, but the wizard escaped with a spell. With Kaos now missing the beard's influence, Golden Queen went back on her decision to marry him by admitting she only wanted him for the hair, and took Glumshanks elsewhere to have the picnic alone. She appeared briefly in The Skylands Are Falling!, excercising at Soulless Cycle. When the evil energy of Skylands is returned to balance, it passed through her, and she turned the entire room and all on it into gold for the fun of it.After being informed by Chompy Mage about the reappearance of the Book of Dark Magic and its location in Skylanders Academy in Crash Landing, Golden Queen tried to steal it for herself in Assault on Skylander Academy, only to run into the rest of the gang as they also went against their plans to steal it together. When confronted by them, the queen threw a hissy fit, which was noticed by the Skylanders and cadets in the Academy, and they quickly grouped to defeat the Doom Raiders and drive them out of the school.
Fleeing into the Falling Forest, the Doom Raiders were found by Kaossandra, who mocked their ruined plan and suggested to them to work together to retrieve the book. Despite the golden statue's hesitation, the other Doom Raiders got eager over the mysterious sorceress' proposal for them to take the rest of the Academy once they've attacked it, and Golden Queen accepted it. Before leaving, however, she wondered about Kaossandra's showcase of stronger magics, and the other sorceress subtly threatened that the gang should be wary if she had to use them.Once they arrive, however, they discovered Kaos has already taken out its defenses after being empowered by the dark book, and Golden Queen ordered Wolfgang to keep the defeated heroes out of the fight by hypnotizing them. With Kaossandra's assistance, they entered the Relics Room, and the queen ordered her underlings to steal the vault's riches as they pleased. However, when Kaos' mother turned to talk to a weakened Master Eon, Golden Queen found the Book of Dark Magic and betrayed her, refusing to hand it over. In an attempt to keep the queen from escaping, Kaossandra ordered Kaos and Glumshanks to get behind her, but Golden Queen coaxed Kaos into joining her by arguing that his mother is keeping him from true power, and he would stay a laughing stock if he didn't join them. He gave into the pressure, forcing Kaossandra to attack all of them with a powerful blast of dark magic so they would escape the school empty-handed.
When Kaos was disowned because of his choice, the Golden Queen found his devotion acceptable, and allowed him to join the Doom Raiders before levitating him out of the building. Back in the Falling Forest, Kaos attempted to find ways to help them, but the golden statue explained that, as a Doom Raider, he only needed to follow her orders and plans; starting with telling them all he knew about the Book of Dark Magic.
The Queen is an old friend of the sorceress and spends a lot of time catching up with gossip with her, but only as long as it is advantageous, betraying her in an attempt to steal the Book of Dark Magic and trying to use Kaos' knowledge against her.
She is aware of his obsession and responds with disgust near other Doom Raiders, but because of his unwavering loyalty to her, she pretends to ignore it to convince him to follow her orders. When he gained new powers and betrayed Kaossandra as well, she decided he was more than what meets the eye, and allowed him to join her gang as long as he stayed submissive.
Golden Queen goes out on a date with Wolfgang in Beard Science because of her fascination with fur and hair, but after the events of the episode, she appears to be no longer interested in him.
Though the other Doom Raiders advised her to drive the floating head away, Golden Queen was impressed by her audacity in insulting Broccoli Guy before even introducing herself, allowing her to join the team.
- The sorceress is one of the few characters in the show with a leitmotif, with sultry jazz notes playing in the background during her major appearances.
- Golden Queen wears leggings under her skirt and robes, only distingushable from her skin when her boots are taken off.
- Though she has her Skylanders: Imaginators appearance's sleeves, in pictures they have their Skylanders: Trap Team design.
- She has yet to be seen with her staff from the games. Oddly, it is also not shown in her fan art, photos or figurine as seen in Kaos' room.
