Although commonly appearing on top X lists of video game villains, queen of blades has never been a well-written or genuinely interesting character.

In SC1 she was a vicious psychopath with no character arc. Her character felt like it was phoned in.

In BW she was a Saturday morning cartoon villain, still with no character arc, who won only because the plot said so rather than because she actually worked for anything. Again, her character felt phoned in.

In SC2, the bad writing reached its nadir when the writers tried to make her the heroine but instead depicted her as a bipolar lunatic who butchers countless innocents because she can, then gets rewarded for her bad behavior by becoming a firey angel. She still has no character arc or development whatsoever.
