A bloated, disgusting behemoth, the Macronid Queen is the Insectoid goddess of fertility and life, being the natural mother of all Macronids. Thousands of eggs are created by the queen every year, fertilized by the best warriors of each species. The Mantis eggs are fertilized by the Debilitator himself. She resides in the core of his mighty, miles-wide hive, ticked safely away from those who would harm her, for she ensures the future of her devilish race. Any Mantis Macronid, after hundred of years of magical training and nurturing from the Queen, can replace the Debilitator, but she is irreplaceable. The horrid, festering mazes leading into her nesting roost are riddled with traps, guards, and unimaginable hells for anyone fool enough to infiltrate.

There hasn't ever been physical contact with the Queen by an outsider, but if it ever actually happened, her head (AC: -4) would have to be attacked at close range for any real damage to come to her, and those doing so would be susceptible to bite attacks (4-40). "To hit" rolls of 17 or greater by the Queen would indicate she has swallowed her foe whole. If her hit points were lowered to 40 or less, she would TELEPORT to some other part of the hive and never return to that roost again. Any battle with the Queen would probably alarm every last Macronid in the hive, certainly including the Debilitator, so this sort of confrontation would probably outclass just about anyone.
