|~ Morganthe before her final battle|
Morganthe, also known as the Umbra Queen or the Shadow Queen, is the main antagonist of the second arc of Wizard 101. Born in the World of Avalon, she became the famed wizard Merle Ambrose's apprentice. Not content with his slow, cautious training methodology, Morganthe would often delve into forbidden magic, being responsible for the transformation of King Artorious into the fearsome Pendragon. Nevertheless, she accompanied an unaware Merle Ambrose to Ravenwood, becoming his best student. Morganthe was never content with her laurels, always striving for greater power. Her research culminated with an Astral Magic experiment that almost destroyed Wizard City. As a result her deck and wand were confiscated and she was expelled from Ravenwood.
Desperate to continue practicing magic in any way she could, she eventually found her way to Khyrsalis where she was hailed by the Spider Magi as the prophesied child. There she unlocked her ability to use Shadow Magic, but she failed to learn Star Magic during her time at the Radiant Alcazar. This spurred her to launch an invasion of Celestia to learn their secrets. Her invasion failed, ending with the destruction of Celestia as she returned to Khyrsalis to raise a new army. Her second invasion succeeded, conquering Zafaria and reigning as its absolute ruler until the Council of Light defeated and banished her. Thousands of years later she reappears in Celestia and finally masters the Astral Magics.
Believing herself to be the subject of a famed prophecy, she recovers a large portion of her power from Zafaria and successfully learned the Song of Creation from ancient spirits of Azteca and orchestrated its destruction. Fully empowered with the Song of Creation, she was opposed by a promising young wizard who managed to make Morganthe lose control of the Song, overwhelming her and causing her to be sent adrift into the Outer Void.
