|Without evil, nothing interesting will ever happen.|
|—The Evil Queen in "Diary of an Evil Queen"|
The Evil Queen, also known as Mira Shards, is the main villain from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. She is currently in mirror prison for the crime of overstepping her story's boundaries and trying to take over all of the kingdoms in Ever After. She famously disrupted Sleeping Beauty's story and invaded Wonderland. She is Raven Queen's mother.
True to her title, this fairytale villain is malicious, but like a true queen, she is also poised and regal, ambitious and a natural leader. She has much apathy for other people, and often has trouble trusting others as she would rather double-cross them. Everyone, that is, except for her daughter. She has been conditioning her daughter her whole life to take after her: bringing her to war meetings with her generals, teaching her to brew potions and poisons, and scolding her for acts of goodness, e.g. apologizing. She knows how to talk her way out of a situation using exploitation of one's insecurities or manipulating feelings. Yet for some reason, Raven is not like her at all. Still, she loves her very much and looks forward to the day when Raven rises to the occasion and takes hold of her evil destiny. The Evil Queen is an excellent schemer and strategist. She is notably intelligent and dedicated to her plans unless they lose their purpose.
In her younger years, the Evil Queen appeared to be more trusting, innocent, humble, and kindhearted. Although she believed in change, she understood the consequences that came with her beliefs. Since she was a teen, she always had an interest in studying Wonderland.
She is described as beautiful and of course, her daughter looks similar to her. She is a statuesque woman with an unbearably dark aura to her appearance, which is intimidating and fearful. She has dark hair swept into a crown-shaped updo and dark purple eyes with slate gray flecks. The Evil Queen takes in two forms: her regular form and her witch form. In her earlier years, she sports a dark figure with an updo, with long hair flowing to the side.
In "Way Too Wonderland", the Evil Queen sports dark purple-spiked hair and a feathered, intricate dark mermaid peplum gown. Her shoulder pads on her gown are adorned with large spiky purple feathers. In The Storybook of Legends, she wore a jumpsuit.

She and the Good King are the parents of Raven Queen. She has a not-so-kind attitude toward her husband, which might leave some wondering why she decided to marry him in the first place, and she is often grooming her daughter Raven to follow in her footsteps, which she never succeeds at. Her family's relationship is kind of strained, and the Evil Queen could not care less.
The Evil Queen had acknowledged that Badwolf used to have a crush on her when they were teenagers. She also had a feeling that Red Riding Hood was jealous, so she secretly hoped that she could resolve any friendship problem before dating a villain in her friend's story.
After the events of Legacy Day, she lets out a menacing cackle, startling the Headmaster while in his office.
Milton infuriatingly interrogates her in his office as the public is aware that the Storybook of Legends is a fake, with the real one stolen and hidden by her. In the large Storybook of Legends from Heritage Hall, she is in her witch form, prompting Raven to eat the poison apple.
The Evil Queen is payed a visit by her daughter, Raven. Though delighted to see her, the Evil Queen masks her joy with her evil intentions. She attempts manipulating Raven by getting her mad into shattering her mirror prison, but she does not prevail. Later that night, she leads Apple to her and has a conversation with Apple. The Evil Queen purposely triggers Apple into shattering her mirror, this time Apple throws an apple to destroy the mirror prison. Free, the Evil Queen vows to keep her release a secret. She does so by disguising herself as a fairytale student, namely Mira Shards, the daughter of the mirror. The Evil Queen spends her few days as Mira Shards, though when Snow White calls her out, the Evil Queen has no hesitation in admitting that she was Mira the whole time. The Evil Queen makes a temporary pact with Snow White, who permits the Evil Queen to play in the dragon games as they are reinstated. The Evil Queen is approached by Faybelle Thorn who submits herself as her minion to do her bidding so that she can be recognized as evil. At night, she enters Apple's dorm and threatens her, so Apple gives the Evil Queen intel that Snow White is in possession of a booking glass. The Evil Queen leaves Apple in tears. The Evil Queen devises a plot to take over the school by transforming the teachers into animals, while interchanging their bodies with animals. While Faybelle does her dirty work, the Evil Queen has her first flying match against Snow White. She reveals that this is all a diversion for Faybelle to steal the booking glass from Snow White's bag. She chooses Apple as her team's captain. When the next generation have their first match, the Evil Queen advises her team as coach to do whatever means necessary to win. Apple keeps that in mind and knocks Darling off her dragon, injuring her leg. It is part of her plan to make Raven take her place, which she does so. As soon as Raven forfeits the match, the Evil Queen casts a spell on Nevermore, making Faybelle convince bystanders that Raven has evil intentions while Nevermore sets the arena on fire. When she is confronted by Snow White, she holds the booking glass and shatters it right in front of Snow, who is holding a fake. After Snow White is being dealt with by the Evil Queen's animal-mind teachers, the Evil Queen receives the headmaster's keys to the school. She shows that she bears no ill will as she uses her magic to recede Nevermore's flames. The Evil Queen is being reported to by Faybelle, who informs her that Raven has fled school grounds. Enraged, the Evil Queen curses Ever After High. She expels Apple from her school by blasting her out the window and sends Faybelle after Apple to lead her into Raven. Raven unexpectedly shows up at the Evil Queen's doorstep, claiming to have put her good intent behind her and is finally embracing her destiny for the path of evil. The Evil Queen's biased words to Raven affect Faybelle, greatly so, thus Faybelle leaves in tears due to her jealousy. The Evil Queen shows little care for Faybelle's flight, and so she proceeds in choosing a land to conquer with her daughter. A while later, the Evil Queen is packing but notices how spaced-out Raven is acting. To ensure Raven's evilness, she creates a void that Raven refuses to throw the animal staff in. The Evil Queen easily sees through Raven's plans and restrains Raven in a force field. She deals with Apple and her friends closing in on them riding on dragons by joining in the battle. The Evil Queen goes against Apple, who holds the booking glass. The Evil Queen defends herself against the rays, but Raven's lent magic intensifies it and the Evil Queen is sent back. After the chaos has subsided, the Evil Queen is payed another visit by Raven, and is escorted onto the fields from inside her mirror prison to watch Raven's dragon match in the arena. She cheers her daughter on.
