She is the leader of the Soul Bee race, a race that eats souls to live. Q-Bee stands for Queen Bee, which is her title, not her name. Their race lived in the lands of the Dohma family. But during the time when Jedah was dead, her race was on the verge of being wiped out. When Jedah was revived and created the realm of Majigen near the realm of Makai, she noticed the vast amount of souls in the new realm. She headed towards the Majigen to gather souls to fuel her Soul Bees' hunger and her own hunger as well.
Q-Bee is a loyal girl who likes to consume the souls of others. She and her race are followers of Jedah Dohma, and will do anything to please him. She often spies on other people in the dark as a way to gain as much information on humanity and other realms for him. She even tries to ask others to join his side as he can help save everything.
Powers and AbilitesEdit
Q-Bee has many supernatural abilities such as the ability to call out to other bees. Like most of her kind, she can consume the souls of her prey, however, she must be near her foe in order to do it. In a manner similar to Jedah, she possesses strength that is strong to carry objects much heavier than a car and a truck.
About the soul bee race Edit
In one family of the Soul Bee race live roughly 50 to 150 bees. The leader of the family is called Q-Bee. Q-Bee is a title instead of a name. The others are either called P-Bee or just Bee.
Out of all the baby bees born, certain bees are born with a honey capsule, an organ that is used to concentrate and accumulate nutrition. This bee is raised to become the next Q-Bee. A Q-Bee works to raise the next leader of the family.
Within P-Bees there are males and females with a ratio of 1:4. Their physical appearance is almost identical, with the male being slightly smaller. The male exists only to help reproduce. A male's regeneration ability is very weak compared to that of a female. Because the current Soul Bee race has a very strong self-reproduction and regeneration system, it is possible to give birth to new Soul Bees even without the help of a male. In the near future, the male Soul Bees will most likely disappear.
The Soul Bees' true eyes are the large discs on their heads. What seem to be eyes on their face are actually an imitation used to deceive other creatures.
Their sense of touch can catch the smell of food with a range that is said to reach several hundred kilometers.
Their intelligence level is equal to a human baby around 4-5 years old. They are able to carry on simple conversations. It is possible a Q-Bee is more intelligent that other members of the Soul Bee race.
Their appetite is the most important aspect of their behavior. To them, everything that moves is food that is meant to be caught. Their digestive ability is incredible and their stomach is rarely upset from eating bad food. Because their metabolism is incredibly high, they will die if they don't eat regularly. Not eating for 36 hours will kill them for sure.
The attack names of the Q-Bee were taken from "Makai Evil Insect Book", written by Varvle Mattlayer. The names were re-written in the nearest sounds to the human language.
It should be noted that the race of Soul Bees uses camouflage to lure in victims. Case in point: Q-Bee's eyes are not on her face. Her face is actually part of the mouth and can be witnessed opening during certain attack animations. The two large round "hair ornaments" on her head are actually her real eyes. Q-Bee's cute face is a ploy to lure in prey.
This is especially noticeable during her standing animation. Q-Bee angles her head down quite severely in her idle animation, almost to the point that what appear to be her eyes cannot see you very well. In actuality, because her primary eyes are on top of her head, she is actually staring right at her enemy.
It should also be noted that Q-Bee can apparently change form, as her intro animation shows her magically grow from a small soul bee into her normal form.

- Similar to Anakaris, Q-bee's true form is only shown when she's electrocuted (and during her intro). She is the only character to have her Pharaoh's Curse form look similar to her true self. This could imply that all Q-bee's are secretly like this or that she is very small exception and needs a suit to help her look bigger.
