The Queen of Beggars resides in a graveyard inside of the Stonemarket District. Rumors have it that she knows of all the events in The City. Donating gold to her will award the player Focus Points which can be used to upgrade Garrett's abilities.
The Queen of Beggars name is unkown, almost nothing is known about her early life or even where she originated from. At some point she eventually came to The City upon where she then resided in an abadoned Old Chapel (once previously owned by The Keepers), where throughout the years she began to build a small community for the frail and poor to who she reffered to as 'Beggars' whom operated under her command.

Personality and CharacteristicsEdit
Nobody really knows who the Queen of Beggars is or where she came from. What is certain is that she is old and blind and spends most of her time in and around an abandoned old chapel on the edge of town living with a community of the poor and needy. The beggars are often those most willing to share what little they have and this seems to fit the Queen perfectly, hence her unofficial title.
Although blind she seems to be able to find her way perfectly well and rumour has it that she can see more than most through the eyes of the rats and the beggars on the streets. Her manner of speaking can be abstract and confusing and she will often stare into the distance as if lost in thought.
For all her odd behaviour, the Queen is perceived as knowledgeable in city events. She is quite sociable and can be found entertaining some of the more notable gossips in The City; games of chess with Basso or close conversations with Madam Xiao Xiao are not uncommon. All over a nice cup of tea, of course.
The Queen of Beggars seems to have a soft spot for Garrett and has known him since he was a street-urchin. Garrett in turn doesn't necessarily embrace the Queen with open arms but certainly finds her intriguing and extends to her his uncommon respect.

- The enigmatic Queen lives inside the The Old Chapel the ruins of a Keepers chapel. She also gives out bonus Focus Points a primal/keeper related enhancement.
- Her identity is never given but some rumors suggest she has lived almost as long as the city and knows things.
- She is also concerned with the balance and prophecy like the Keepers of old.
- As a character her personality and duty of interpreting the the important things that go on in the city is similar to the character interpreter Caduca, the blind oracle of the keepers in the early games. But some fans think rather that she is Gamall from original Thief series.
- She is similar to Vera Moray from the game Dishonored, as both are blind old women who have magic powers in a similar steampunk setting.
