Very little is known about the so called Queen of Darkness. Her gigantic body lies somewhere in the core of Tenebra maze, plunged in a centuries-long deep sleep. That place was an immense and majestic palace long ago, before being overrun by a mysterious force that turned it into the dark, tortuous, and almost living labyrinth known as Tenebra maze. There are many tales about how this came to pass, and they differ greatly on what role of Déméchrelle had in this transformation.
-Some say that the previous occupants of the palace attempted a ritual that went horribly wrong and summoned Déméchrelle from the abyss.
-Some claim that Déméchrelle was a genie protector of the palace, and that, during a fight, she swallowed a very powerful dark mage in order to protect her masters. Due to the mages protective magic she was only able to digest him slowly, over several years, and during that time she slowly took the darkness of the mage into herself.
-Other dismiss her being a genie and instead say that Déméchrelle was actually a normal human and the queen of the palace before some terrible and mysterious events occurred, which turned her into what she is now.
-Another tale says that Déméchrelle was a princess who was banished from the palace after murdering her sisters, and that she returned afterwards for vengeance after making a pact with an entity from a negative dimension.
It's almost impossible to know the truth, buried as it is in time, however all tales agree on one point: the palace was sealed off by a guardian centuries ago and Déméchrelle was put to sleep. Since then, Déméchrelle lies among what is rumored to be piles of fantastic treasure, guarded by a legion of Wandering nightmares. Those minions are actually part of her and are watching over her slumber, attacking any intruders who dare to enter the maze. When the Queen gets hungry though, trespassers might find the large halls of the derelict palace strangely calm and quiet and, find themselves subtly guided deep in the maze, to the royal chamber where Déméchrelle sleeps and then being fed to the sleeping giantess by her minions. Déméchrelle is also said to have created Five Eyes, the Devourer, centuries ago.
