Duchess RavenWaves

Through sheer arrogance and supreme vanity, the evil Duchess RavenWaves has decided that she more than anyone else deserves to be called the most beautiful girl in the world. However, her striking good looks are on the surface only, and her very long, raven-black hair reflects light from the outside rather than shimmering with a shine of its own. Jealousy is never pretty, but Duchess RavenWaves doesn't understand that the real beauty of Lady LovelyLocks comes from within, and no magic potion, hair color, or frizzy perm will ever be able to match that.

This prideful girl has confused beauty with extravagance and royal majesty with tacky luxury. Her competition with Lady LovelyLocks has caused her to overdo and exaggerate everything. Tangleland, her home, is a very dry and unsightly place because she spends more time on herself than taking care of her land. The resulting static electricity fills her hair whenever she gets angry, causing little sparks to fly every time she touches something. This of course does nothing to improve her conceited personality.

Duchess RavenWaves has retained the loyalties of the small, bad-tempered Comb Gnomes. In return for their help in conquering the Kingdom of LovelyLocks, she has promised them beautiful hair. They do whatever she tells them, for they see her as their only chance to become lovelier than their rivals, the PixieTails. But as long as there is no inner beauty in any of their hearts, try as they might, they will never become truly beautiful.


  • Duchess RavenWaves uses a big telescope to spy on Lady LovelyLocks. It also includes sound, so she can eavesdrop as well.
  • According to the storybooks, Duchess RavenWaves is two years older than Lady LovelyLocks.
  • Duchess RavenWaves' mother was the Grand Duchess RavenHair.


  • Explaining herself to Lady LovelyLocks: "I've seen the magic your hair creates in the Looking Room. I'll have your hair, then the kingdom!"
  • After Lady LovelyLocks rescues her from a cave-in: "I never thought I would say 'thank you' to you, Lady... so I won't!"
  • Replies to Longcurls' "rak" with: "Rak, indeed!"
  • To HairBall: "All I need is some of her magical hair. Then I'll have her power."
  • "What a great day to plot against Lady LovelyLocks!"
  • Explaining herself to HairBall: "She saved my life. I owe her a favor, HairBall. And I don't like to owe anyone anything. But don't you worry. There's always a next time... There's always a next time!"

I love Duchess Ravenwaves, I actually found her more lovely than Lady. I mean hello! Not only is she evil, but she's drop dead beautiful! Her long hair, that dress and her voice are really staples that should not be viewed as evil, but just another side of beauty.

Anyway, I support the Duchess!!!

For some reason, I always loved Duchess RavenWaves much more than Lady Lovelylocks - I think it's because her dress was purple - my favorite color when I was a child! I wish she could have won at least once!

I always wished she could have won once, too. SO PRETTY! My best friend and I actually started coming up with a story in which she actually managed to kill Lady, a long long time ago... We were messed up children.

I always liked Duchess Raven Waves the best as well. I had the doll of her when I was little, and I thought she was the prettiest character. Aside from having not quite black but still very dark hair, there was also something about Lady Lovely Locks' sugary sweetness that got on my nerves.

I totally agree. LadyLovelyLocks is just so...annoying. And when you realise she has flying animals living in her hair, she really gets a lot less lovely, doesnt she? Plus, Duchess RavenWaves is funnier

Haha, well, I guess you can never please everyone. Evil

LLL's pixietails don't actually live in her hair though, but she can call them to her by shaking her hair, and it seems that they take a nap in her hair sometimes. Hm, I once woke up to find my dog sleeping in my hair... that didn't improve my coiffure much though! Shocked

But yeah, RavenWaves is funnier, she always cracks me up. Eye-wink
