She is mentioned in the book of 1 Kings of the Old Testament, and in the New Testament. An enigmatic queen ruling over the "Kingdom of Sheba", located south of Jerusalem. However, there is no precise evidence to ascertain the existence of the Queen and her kingdom. At one of the kingdom's possible sites, Ethiopia, there is a wondrous national myth that the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon wedded, and the Queen became the matriarch of their first empire.
Both her ears and tail feel velvety and fluffy. An uncertain existence like a mirage; no, it is perhaps for that reason, that the Queen of Sheba is recorded as a "Peerless Beauty" in many legends, rivaling the majesty of King Solomon himself. Yes, she is indeed a beautiful woman, but for some reason, there's a rather unfortunate vibe to her... of course, no one can understand.
Also, many regions have legends about her having an inhuman figure. Arabians said “the Queen had furry legs and donkey hooves”, Southern French said “her feet were webbed like a goose’s”, etc. The correct version is the story that says that she is the daughter of a djinn woman and a human man. It’s also believed that the Queen possesses a shapeshifter’s power to have a variety of appearances, as if she were a light-refracting lens.
First, she is one who thrives on prosperous business. There is no tolerance for greedy, pointless expenditure. Profits dealing with money and treasure; they are the very blood and breath that circulate through her mind and body. She very much lives and breathes money, treasure, business connection, and get-rich-quick schemes. Even so, the act she puts on is intentional, having seen into the future, and one must bear in mind that all of this may also be a possible sham. An optimist with a calm and carefree demeanor. Except she’s very predatory when it comes to money. She remembers clearly what people said ages ago and brings that up again the most critical moments.
She has a self-deprecating side regarding how, contrary to her glamorous legends, her own past was nothing but modest. And she strongly values modest stories of everyday life. She has powers of future precognition, originated from her djinn bloodline. It’s implied that her meeting with Solomon in the legends was actually an intense mentally draining Clairvoyance vs Clairvoyance battle, where they would go through the three enigmas adapting to what was becoming settled as the future and the past.
Likes: Obtaining things for a low price and parting with them for a large sum (this is not exclusively about commercial products). Pretty bottles of perfume. Dromedaries.
Dislikes: Treasures (including people of talent) gathering dust in storehouses. Predicting the future of people close to her. Bactrian camels.
Motives and attitude towards MasterEdit
When dealing with her Master, she’s fully respectful to the relationship in their contract and finds this very refreshing. If their deepening bonds eventually cause any changes in the Queen’s heart, those will be too minor to be noticed.
Comments from the DjinnsEdit

Shalosh: She sleeps in camel pantaloons. Sheba: Those are lumpy roompants-!

Abigail: Lately she’s been less and less prone to calling me by the wrong name. Although that’s a tiny bit sad… I’m sure it’s for the best.

Solomon: Protecting this Chaldea and helping the Master are the priceless joys of my current life…
