Queen Glacier was the queen of the IceWings and was allied with Princess Blaze in the War of The SandWing Succession, although this alliance was only accepted since Blaze promised to give her a large swath of the Kingdom of Sand if she helped her win the war, and possibly so that Queen Glacier wouldn't have to deal with Burn or Blister at the original SandWing border. The Ice Kingdom was too cold for SandWings to comfortably live in, so Blaze set up a fortress on its outer edges. Blaze thought that Glacier would protect her no matter what, even if she was facing a challenger. This was proven to be wrong in The Brightest Night, in which Glacier stepped back in order to ensure a fair duel. Glacier died due to a plague that affected all IceWings in Darkness of Dragons, sent forth by Darkstalker avenging his mother, Foeslayer. The new Queen is now Snowfall, who is Glacier's daughter.
In the epilogue of The Dark Secret, she is described to be quite tall and imposing, with beautiful snow-white scales and stunning arctic-blue eyes. She was huge and majestic. Prince Winter said that Glacier got bigger and stronger every year, which is why Princess Icicle would need to challenge her soon if she wanted to become queen and live up to her parent's expectation.
Although she did not formally appear, Glacier and her troops approached the cave that the dragonets were temporarily occupying within the Ice Kingdom's border. Blaze encouraged the dragonets to stay and meet Queen Glacier, but they decided to leave in fear of becoming imprisoned again. This would mean possibly dying of the sub-zero temperatures in the dungeons, after already being kept captive by the SkyWings and the SeaWings, in their respective orders, they didn't wish to be imprisoned due to their experience.
In the epilogue, Queen Glacier met with Blaze outside of her palace to discuss the Dragonets of Destiny. She threatened to kill the dragonets if they didn't choose her ally, Blaze, as the next SandWing queen since that would demoralize her dragons. She also said she had no problem with wiping out all of the NightWings when Blaze mentioned that Deathbringer tried to kill her during the meeting with the dragonets of destiny.
Queen Glacier is present when the dragonets attempt to choose a SandWing queen. When Blister challenges Blaze to a duel, Blaze begs Glacier to fight for her. Queen Glacier doesn't appeal to the idea of neighboring a kingdom ruled by Blister, but she does want to be just and fair. She apologizes to Blaze, and says it is her own fight, giving the heavy implication that she is an honest ruler. Blaze manages to survive the fight without doing much, mostly because Blister just messed around with her.
She is seen flying back to the Ice Palace after meeting with Queen Glory to discuss Icicle's fate. Once Winter and Hailstorm return to the kingdom, Winter is placed at the top of the first circle and Hailstorm in the last spot of the seventh circle. Due to Hailstorm's hatching day coming in two weeks after his arrival, he must reach the first or second beforehand if he was to live in the palace. In an effort to reclaim his rank, he challenges Winter to the Diamond Trial. On the way to the Diamond Caves, Glacier asks for Winter's side of the story after hearing Icicle's. Glacier only interrupts Winter's story once to ask about Cirrus, then wishes both Winter and Prince Hailstorm luck during the Diamond Trial.
She is mentioned in the epilogue of Talons of Power when a messenger arrives with some news for Hailstorm, noting that Queen Glacier was the first to catch a plague that was spreading across the Ice Kingdom. The messenger delivers a message saying that the queen of the IceWings is dead.
Glacier is mentioned very briefly when King Darkstalker pulls out a scroll and enchants it to tell the news of the IceWings. The scroll announces that Glacier is dead and her daughter, Snowfall, has taken the throne. Snowfall is leading an army to avenge Glacier and the other 19 dragons known to have been killed by the plague.
Queen Glacier was a fair and just queen who put her tribe before anything else, even herself. She allied her tribe with Blaze - not for her liking of the SandWing princess, but because of the promise of territory for her IceWings. When the time came, she made Blaze fight her own battle, which shows she was an honest and just ruler. At one point, she did mention that she would kill the Dragonets Of Destiny, but only if she had to. According to Blaze, she once literally ripped the wings off a SkyWing assassin before killing him to save her. She appeared to be one of the kinder queens in Pyrrhia. She was good at putting together clues and figuring things out but could get enraged sometimes. Though Queen Glacier said she would kill the dragonets in The Dark Secret, she seemed to have no hatred towards them, only saying that because she wanted to protect her tribe. In fact, she seemed fond of their plan to unite the tribes.
