Queen Jaydes, Super Paper Mario

Queen Jaydes is the kindhearted (yet strict) queen of The Underwhere in Super Paper Mario. She is the mother figure to Luvbi, raising her with Grambi. She resides near the entrance to The Underwhere, at the other side of River Twygz. She is pampered by her busy D-Men while she keeps watch on those who have received a Game Over. As the ruler of The Underwhere, she possesses power over life and death. Queen Jaydes gets her name from the god of the underworld in Greek mythology, Hades, as well as "jaded", which means "unenthused" or "bored" (both of which are qualities that she possesses). She also bears some resemblance to the Shadow Queen from the previous game.


Queen Jaydes opens a portal to allow Mario and Luigi to "continue" their game

Mario first meets Queen Jaydes after being sent to The Underwhere by Dimentio; after sensing the energy given off by the weakened Pure Heart that he had brought with him, she learns that a Nimbi from The Overthere named Luvbi has disappeared and asks that Mario aid in the search for her. After reuniting with his brother and returning with Luvbi, Mario learns that she is actually Jaydes' daughter — as thanks for locating her, the queen returns to Mario the revitalized Pure Heart, having used her power to restore it to life, and grants the two heroes a "Continue" in order to return them to Flipside.

Upon returning to The Underwhere in search of the next Pure Heart, Mario, Luigi, and Tippi are asked by Queen Jaydes to escort Luvbi to her father, Grambi, in the Overthere, in the wake of a powerful monster's escape from its prison. Queen Jaydes does not appear again until the very end of Chapter 7, where she reveals alongside her husband that Luvbi is the final Pure Heart, disguised as a Nimbi for its own protection. After assuring Luvbi of their love for her and witnessing her transform back into her original form, Jaydes returns to The Underwhere, saddened by the loss of her daughter.

Following the defeat of the final boss, Jaydes travels to The Overthere upon hearing that Luvbi has been restored to life. There, she promises to give Luvbi as much love as she can and encourages the heroes to come visit her for judgement when their games end, as thanks for their hard work.
