Birthing entire Hive broods
- "I've never heard of a Brood Queen so close to the surface. Mission reports from the Hellmouth on Luna don't even mention them."
- — The Ghost
Brood Queens are special variants of Wizards that are responsible for birthing entire legions of Hive. As a result of their important role, Brood Queens are so well hidden and protected that reports of expeditions and missions launched into the Hellmouth on the Moon don't even mention them.
The first Brood Queen ever encountered, In Anânh, was larger and looked noticeably different from other Wizards; possessing a large abdomen with bony protrusions that ended with a tail.
Brood Queens are a superior form of a Wizard than their Brood Mother lesser. It is unknown what connection the two forms have to each other.
Known Brood Queens
- In Anânh, Brood Queen – A Brood Queen who was the main source of the Tangled Shore Hive, and possibly mated with Hiraks, the Mindbender.
- Ir Abassin, Broodlost – A Wizard, that is possibly a Brood Queen, who was a member of an unknown Hive Brood before disappearing into the EAZ.
- The Brood Queen is the second unique form of the Hive Wizard to be encountered by Guardians. The Deathsinger was the first.
- Multiple Wrathborn Wizards use the same model as In Anânh, but have not been confirmed to be Brood Queens.
