Princess Snowfox was the niece of Queen Diamond, and the only remaining heir to the IceWing throne throughout the book Darkstalker (Legends). She was described to be exceedingly cruel and sarcastic, and if she ever became queen, Clearsight had foreseen at least four futures where she would lead to a genocide and succeed in wiping out the entire NightWing tribe. This knowledge is what stopped Darkstalker from killing Queen Diamond, and this is thought to be because in Runaway when Prince Arctic and Foeslayer were escaping, they killed six IceWing guards and injured Snowflake. She was mentioned to have a daughter at some point in the future who was destined to inherit the throne. Since Queen Diamond had no other heirs, every member of the royal IceWing family is descended from Snowfox.
Snowfox is described as a beautiful white IceWing with a scattering of blue-grey scales across her wings that look like shadows stretching across them. She wears a First Circle necklace with a single circle accessory and has small gems like sapphires embedded in her teeth. She is also described as having dark blue eyes that can strike fear in her enemies.
In Runaway, Snowfox is first shown approaching Snowflake and talking to her, asking her to call her 'Fox'. She tells Snowflake that she has a few ideas if she's interested, and they start to scheme.
Later on, they believe that Queen Diamond knows about Arctic's plan to meet Foeslayer, and they think that their plan is ruined. Snowfox promises Snowflake that she won't have to marry him (Snowflake doesn't like Arctic at all), and they start to try and figure out a way to get Arctic out of the IceWing Kingdom.
Snowfox plans on hinting to Arctic that Queen Diamond planned on killing the NightWings, to make Arctic believe that Foeslayer was in danger and make him run away with her.
Snowfox is with Snowflake when Arctic accidentally orders spears to kill the IceWings chasing them. Snowflake chases after him, yelling and calling him a monster and claiming that he didn't deserve life or happiness. However, Foeslayer blasts fire towards her, which Arctic catches in his claws and shoots down at Snowflake.
Snowfox puts out the fire on Snowflake's wing with her frostbreath before swearing vengeance on the NightWings due to her friend's injury and her fellow IceWings' deaths. Because of this, when Clearsight has a vision of Snowfox potentially wiping out the NightWings in Darkstalker (Legends), it shows Snowfox's hatred for NightWings.
Clearsight mentioned Snowfox after checking all possible paths in the future where Darkstalker killed Queen Diamond. She predicted that the NightWings would most likely face genocide of their entire tribe if Queen Diamond was killed and Snowfox became queen of the IceWings.
Clearsight tells Darkstalker not to kill Queen Diamond until Snowfox has her first dragonet that will be fit for the IceWing throne (it is unknown whether she does have a dragonet, however, it is likely she does since no one has mentioned a genocidal Queen Snowfox in IceWing history).
Snowfox is said to move like "a confident predator" who is very cunning and always plotting something. She seems pretty confident like the comparison suggests, as she approached Snowflake almost immediately. She is implied to be manipulative as well, as at first, she was willing to manipulate Snowflake into helping her take the IceWing throne.
Snowfox is also very intelligent, as she schemed with Snowflake on ways to get rid of Arctic and ascend to the throne. She is cruel, as mentioned in Darkstalker (Legends), and brutal. She seeks out NightWing genocide to get revenge on them for what they did to Snowflake's wing.

"We won't let that happen. You'll never have to marry him. I swear by the eggs that hatched the world." - Telling Snowflake that she won't have to marry Arctic
"Silvery moons. You have a depth of dark water below your ice don't you?" - After hearing Snowflake's sarcastic comment about Prince Arctic
"I'll never forgive you for this!"
"I'll kill every last NightWing when I get the chance! You'll wake up one day with my claws in your eyes! I'm going to wipe out your whole tribe and leave you until last so you'll know their deaths are all your fault!" - To Foeslayer
"Yours first. Yours is more urgent. I can deal with the dragonets later if I have to." - Telling Snowflake that getting rid of Arctic was a more important priority than ascending to the throne
"I have a few ideas . . . if you're interested."
"Isn't it wonderful to meet a dragon who's a kindred spirit?"
"You must be the happiest dragon in the Ice Kingdom."
It has been confirmed that Snowfox is in a relationship with Snowflake. Snowflake and Snowfox work together to try to kill Arctic since Snowflake hates him and then to become the queen of IceWings.
- In Runaway, Snowfox goes by 'Fox' to avoid confusion with Snowflake.
- Snowfox is described as having strange looks for an IceWing, yet still being beautiful.
- She is one of the few dragons depicted in the series to have gems embedded on her body, some other known ones being Ex-Queen Scarlet, Onyx, and Queen Moorhen.
- Tui has confirmed that Snowfox was in a relationship with Snowflake, Prince Arctic's former fiancée. This makes her one of the five characters that are canonically LGBT+.
- Snowfox is one of four known dragons to have nicknames, the others being Princess Sunny (Beetle), Moonwatcher (Moon) and Ex-Queen Magnificent (Maggie).
- All current Royal IceWings are stated to be her descendants, meaning that she might have been forced to marry.
- Snowfox is against all NightWings after what Foeslayer did to Snowflake.
- Because she was related to Queen Diamond, she had the animus gene and possibly passed. However, it's more likely that her daughter is adopted due to her relationship with Snowflake.
- Her not having a biological dragonet could have resulted in the disappearance of the animus dragon lineage in the IceWing Kingdom, to which Snowflake could have put the blame on the NightWings and Darkstalker.
