Isabel Rochev was from a small village in Siberia where she lived a life of servitude working in a diamond mine. When the head of Queen Industries, Robert Queen, (the father of the young Oliver Queen who would later become the hero Green Arrow) came to her village she was inspired by the man who she saw as a symbol of ones inner power. She fell in love with him and whilst he may or may not have loved her she found him a great source of inspiration and vowed to make something of herself and rise from her humble status as a slave girl.
She achieved this goal when, many years later, and after the death of Robert Queen, she became the new CEO of Queen Industries having brought large numbers of shares in the company though many smaller organizations that she owned.

Rochev arrived on the scene with the goal to make the name of Queen Industries great again after the company had continuously lost profit and support for many years.

With much of Star City destroyed Isabel soon began to increase her influence over the city and become closer to power.
Isabel is a somewhat eccentric individual and often wears a mask to hide her face. She also believes herself to be the true heir to Queen Industries and the true love of Robert Queen's life. This gives her single minded nature and she is also know to wear the jewelry of Robert Queens wife. Specifically her wedding ring.
