Queen Glacier was the queen of the IceWings. She was allied with Princess Blaze in the War of The SandWing Succession, although this alliance was only accepted because Blaze promised to give her a large swath of the Kingdom of Sand if she helped her win the war. The Ice Kingdom was too cold for SandWings to comfortably live in, so Blaze set up a fortress on its outer edges. Blaze thought that Glacier would protect her no matter what, even if she was facing a challenger. This was proven wrong in The Brightest Night. Glacier died due to a plague that seems to have affected the royal lineage of IceWings in Talons of Power, perhaps sent forth by Darkstalker in revenge because of his father, Arctic.
In the epilogue of The Dark Secret, she is described to be quite tall: “P-p-please can’t we go inside?” She said to the tall white dragon beside her.", with beautiful snow-white scales and stunning arctic-blue eyes "Her arctic blue eyes regarded the IceWing guards". It described her spikes and tail as, "Frost glittered along her wings and horns. The spikes at the end of her tail were as sharp and cold as icicles." She was huge and majestic, far more beautiful and imposing than any other queen in Pyrrhia. Winter said that Glacier got bigger and stronger every year, which is why Icicle would need to challenge her soon if she wanted to be queen.
Although she did not formally appear, Glacier and her troops approached the cave that the dragonets were temporarily occupying within the Ice Kingdom's border. Blaze encouraged the dragonets to stay and meet Queen Glacier, but they decided to leave in fear of becoming imprisoned again. This would mean possibly dying of the sub-zero temperatures in the dungeons, after already being kept captive by the SkyWings and by the SeaWings, in their respective orders.
In the epilogue, Queen Glacier met with Blaze outside of her palace to discuss the Dragonets of Destiny. She threatened to kill the dragonets if they didn't choose her ally, Blaze, as the next SandWing queen since that would demoralize her dragons. She also said she had no problem with wiping out all the NightWings when Blaze mentioned that Deathbringer tried to kill her.
Queen Glacier is present when the dragonets attempt to choose a SandWing queen. When Blister challenges Blaze to a duel, Blaze begs Glacier to fight for her. Queen Glacier doesn't appeal to the idea of neighboring a kingdom ruled by Blister, but she does want to be just and fair. She apologizes to Blaze but says it is her fight, giving the implication that she is an honest ruler. Blaze manages to survive the fight without doing much.
She is seen flying back to the Ice Palace after meeting with Queen Glory to discuss Icicle's fate. Once Winter and Hailstorm return to the kingdom, Winter is placed at the top of the first circle and Hailstorm in the last spot of the seventh circle. Due to Hailstorm's hatching day coming in two weeks after his arrival, he must reach the first or second beforehand if he was to live in the palace. In an effort to reclaim his rank, he challenges Winter to the Diamond Trial. On the way to the Diamond Caves, Glacier asks for Winter's side of the story after hearing Icicle's. Glacier only interrupts Winter's story once to ask about Cirrus, then wishes both Winter and Hailstorm luck during the Diamond Trial.
She is mentioned in the epilogue of Talons of Power when a messenger arrives with some news for Hailstorm, noting that Queen Glacier was the first to catch a plague that was spreading across the Ice Kingdom. The messenger delivers a message saying that the queen of the IceWings is dead. The type of plague is unknown, and it is suspected that Darkstalker created it as revenge against the IceWings.
Queen Glacier was a fair and just queen who put her tribe before anything else, even herself. She allied her tribe with Blaze - not for her liking of the SandWing princess, but because of the promise of territory for her IceWings. When the time came, she made Blaze fight her own battle, which shows she was an honest and just ruler. At one point, she did mention that she would kill the Dragonets Of Destiny, but only if she had to. According to Blaze, she once literally ripped the wings off a SkyWing assassin before killing him to save her. She appeared to be one of the kinder queens in Pyrrhia. She was good at putting together clues and figuring things out but could get enraged sometimes. Though Queen Glacier said she would kill the dragonets in The Brightest Night, she seemed to have no hatred towards them, only saying that because she wanted to protect her tribe. In fact, she seemed fond of their plan to unite the tribes.
