"I am the Queen of Cards. I travel all over the world to monitor and enforce the various card rules."
—Queen of Cards

The Queen of Cards (カードクイーン, Kādo Kuīn) is a non-playable character in Final Fantasy VIII. A master of the card game Triple Triad, the Card Queen controls regional gaming rules and is part of a side-quest to obtain rare cards. Her real name is unknown.



Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The Queen grew up in the Dollet Dukedom, where her father worked as a painter of new Triple Triad cards. Having been raised around somebody so prominently associated with the game the Queen easily became an expert player. By the start of the game, she is one of the leading card players in the world. Although first found idling near the train station in Balamb, the Queen is constantly on the move, traveling from town to town in search of challenging opponents. Her card skills are so respected that any new rule she adopts soon spreads among the populace where she is playing. The Queen offers the player the ability to pass on a new rule to a region for the price of 30,000 gil. She will also offer to combine rules, like any other Triple Triad player. Finally, the Queen of Cards can influence the trading rules. Each time she is played, one of the four trading rules (One, Diff, Direct, or All) is randomly selected and the most recent trading rule used in a game with her may sometimes spread.

By disc 4, the Card Quest has ended, regardless as to whether the player participated. At this point, the Queen has taken up permanent residence on the Estharian continent, just outside the southern border of the city barrier. There, the player can challenge her to win any rare cards they may have missed over the course of the game. Additionally, if they use the Card Mod ability nearby her, then she will carry any modded rare cards.

The Card Quest Side Quest

Although the Queen carries no rare cards herself her father, the card painter, does. If the player is willing to lose certain coveted cards to the Queen her father will be inspired to create a new one-of-a-kind card. In order to begin this sidequest the player must first get the Queen to move to Dollet. The Queen will change locations each time the player loses a rare card to her or wins one back from her. Once the Queen is in Dollet the player will be given a new option to ask about her artist father. They can then lose cards to her in order to get new ones to be painted.
When they player loses one of these cards to the Queen she will say that it is a great card and that she is sure her father can create a wonderful new card from it. She will then move on to the next location. Once the new card has been created the player must locate the artist's son in order to win back the card they lost. The artist's son is located in a house on the outskirts of Dollet (he is the little boy who keeps placing a bone in the artist's painting). The new cards created by the card painter however are distributed to the public and must be won from certain people.
