The Condesce, despite being portrayed as a heartless tyrant, has a surprisingly laxed personality from what's been shown. She seems comparable to her Pre-Scratch self Meenah Peixes, always using slang and has a terrible attitude. Despite this, she is extremely cruel, exterminating the entire human race simply because they weren't biologically compatible with her own. According the Draconian Dignitary, she actually enjoys baking, implying she really did start Betty Crocker as a genuine baking company.
She takes the appearance of a female troll with very long hair and a black suit. She has pointy horns that go straight up and are very long. She also has a very long trident which is a similar trident to Feferi's. Her trident seems to have some red rope tied around it. This rope might resemble the blood of her victims. Her large black suit has a long Zodiac symbol that is the symbol for the Zodiac known as Pisces. Likewise Feferi Peixes and Meenah Peixes also have a Pisces symbol as their Zodiacs.
Act 5 Act 2
The Condesce is mentioned by Doc Scratch Act 5 Act 2, when he tells the reader (and the Handmaid) about the story of the Sufferer (Karkat's ancestor). The Sufferer was a troll who had started a rebellion after remembering fragments of what happened to him in the previous session. She is mentioned to have captured him, and then tortured him to death. Part of this torture involved pressing a hot iron with the Cancer symbol in his chest. She also puts the Psiionic (one of the Sufferer's friends and Sollux's ancestor) in her battleship to be used as a living battery whose lifespan was extended until the Condesce's death.
Later on she appears on Alternia, where she meets the Handmaid, who she challenges to a duel. Eventually she killed the Handmaid in an act that is, according to Scratch, both punishment and reward. The punishment and reward for The Handmaid is her death, which Lord English didn't allow her to do until she finished her task, whilst the reward for the Condesce is immortality from Lord English, with as punishment eternal slavery to him. Further information is witheld from the reader, as Hussie assaults Scratch later on. The story is later told to be "Troll Fanfiction".

|~ Jake mistaking Meenah for The Condesce.|

Dirk then tells Jake that The Condesce married Lord English but soon hated English because he wiped out most of the troll race. Dirk also tells Jake that The Condesce ruled the world and began war with the earth. The war killed off so many people that only 2 humans survived. Those humans were Roxys mother and Dirks bro. Roxys mother and Dirks bro managed to rebuild the population. Dirk says that when Roxys' mother and his bro confronted The Condesce, The Condesce instantly killed them.

Later while Roxy and Jane were talking The Condesce interrupted them and got angry at Roxy for escaping her jail. The Condesces ship is then seen landing on Derse and The Condesce (who had Sollux's powers at the moment) shot a Psiionic blast from her eyes which she shot at Derses moon so she could destroy it (which was a success). However doing so she accidentally released Roxy and Dirks God Tier. The Condese then flew to Roxy and Dirk and prepared to fight them. Before Dirk could attack The Condesce, The Condesce took over Jade Harley's mind and turned her into Grimbark Jade who would serve The Condesce. The Condesce ordered Grimbark Jade to zap Jane which turned Jane into CrockerTier Jane who also would serve The Condesce. The Condesce ordered them both to beat Jake, Dirk, and Roxy. Grimbark Jade and CrockerTier Jane managed to beat them without a problem and give them to The Condese who put on an evil grin. She then beat them till she got all of their money. She started smoking a cigarette and put on a new pair of glasses with we're white with stripes on it. She then held up their treasures as if it were her own and she achieved it.

When Kanayas friend Rose tries to avenge Kanaya by killing The Condesce. In the end Rose is stabbed by The Condesces staff and is almost killed by The Condesce but Rose is saved by her mom Roxy. Areana then fights The Condesce by crashing planets into each other to crush The Condesce when they crash. The Condesce dodges the planets and her ship blows up instead.

Act 6 Act 6 Act 5
Vriska Serket formed a plan in which the heroes would defeat their biggest threats. One of the biggest threats was The Condesce. John Egbert, Rose Lalonde, Jane Crocker, Kanaya Maryam, and Roxy Lalonde formed a team to take down The Condesce. As the team planned out how they were going to defeat her, she overheard them and was furious. Once the team spotted her, they prepared to have a final battle.
The Condesce fights John, Rose, Roxy, and Kanaya and seems to have the upper hand. She beats all of them down until Roxy comes behind her and stabs her in the back by surprise.
The Condesce appeared in a fan video of Homestuck called "Rex Duodecim Angelus" where the trolls fight the Black King The Condesce makes a appearance along with the other ancestors, like The Sufferer and Marquise Spinneret Mindfang. She makes another appearance in another fan video called "The Condescension song". This video is a parody of Oogie Boogie song from the movie "The Nightmare Before Christmas". In the video itself The Condesce finally captures Dirk Strider and she teases him by saying things like "He's anime, he's yaoi" or "This can't be the right guy". She constantly pushes Dirk to the wall when he talks back to her.
The Condesce wants nothing more then the destruction of everything. She will do anything to achieve it. Create wars, torture, kill, just about anything in order to make the world topple out of existence. She wants to cause as much chaos and destruction as Lord English. One of her attempts to eternal destruction was to become queen of the trolls. She tries to achieve this by making all the trolls fear her so she can take control over them and make them destroy everything. Although she is the employee of Lord English she hates him with a burning passion and plans on killing him.
Powers and Abilities
As a fuchsia blooded troll the Condesce has an incredibly long lifespan, superhuman strength, speed and durability, and an immunity against telepathic attacks. She is proficient in using a double ended trident (2x3dent), enough so to effortlessly kill a god tier player. She can extend other people's lifespans. Her gold tiara gives her access to several other troll's powers, including control over animals (including nigh omnipotent First Guardians), telekinetic powers strong enough to move planets and the ability to shoot psychic eye lasers that can vaporize an entire moon.
- The troll writing on her battleship says "Battleship Condescension", which has the same initials as "Betty Crocker".
- Nannasprite referred to Betty Crocker as "The Baroness", which matches the other eight-letter titles of the ancestors.
- Dirk later on Sburb Logo also referred the Condesce as the Baroness.
- Mindfang and the Draconian Dignitary both call her a witch. Feferi's mythological role is the Witch of Life, while Betty Crocker is also commonly referred to in-universe as the "Batterwitch".
- The Condesce seems to have some sort of connection with the Witch class; as she has had some kind of relationship with every known Witch player. Damara's post-scratch self, the Handmaid, was killed by the Condesce, Jade was under her control for a short time up until her death, and her descendant and Heiress, Feferi, was the Witch of Life.
- "Glorious Monarch" is a title of the Black Queen (whom the Condesce replaced), which so happens to start with the same letters as "General Mills".
- While communicating, the Condesce speaks similarly to Meenah. This could possibly mean that all post-scratch ancestors talked like their pre-scratch selves (as Aranea and Mindfang do, and Jane and Nanna do, more or less) or is just coincidence with the Condesce.
- It is shown that the mind-controlled Jane and Jade, while still acting with the best interests of the Condesce in mind, are more than just puppets for her and have at least some measure of autonomy.
