About

Leading the evil Unseelie Court is the powerful Queen of Darkness. She is also the queen of magic and murder. Some know her as the Queen of Bats. This ruthless arch fey rules over the two divisions of the Unseelie Court: the Winter Court and the Autumn Court. She is a hateful, spiteful monster who seeks to destroy the Seelie Court.

Dark Sister. The queen is actually the sister of Titania, one of the leaders of the Seelie Court. Darkness overcame her and she lost her claim to the throne of the good fey.

Evil Minions. As the leader of the Unseelie Court, the queen has numerous minions at her disposal. Six hellhounds always accompany this evil fey. Other dark fey, undead, and evil elves fill her court.

Powerful Mount. At times the queen rides a nightmare, or a black unicorn.

Summon Swarms of Bats (2/day). As a bonus action, the queen can summon 1d6 giant bats. They appear in unoccupied spaces within 60 feet of the queen.
