Bilquis, also known as the Queen of Sheba, is a minor antagonist in the book American Gods by Neil Gaiman. She has a minor role in the book and she is one of the Old Gods. She was born of a demon, so the stories say, and ruled Sheba when she was a young queen. She is the goddess of love and lust, and lived til modern times.
In modern times, she is a prostitute, and she has the power to absorb men who come to her apartment in Las Vegas for paid sex. Bilquis can absorb men through her vagina, literally eating them into nothing, and she tells them they make it happen when she eats them. This is how the Queen gets her power this way because the other gods have different ways of keeping their power; i.e. Odin does gambling, Czernobog does deals, Eastre has Easter, Media has the television, but Bilquis has the power of absorbing men.
The Queen stands on the sidewalk murming spells under her breath and once she is approached by the Technical Kid who insults her for being stupid and he rams into her in his limosuine, killing her.
- There are some fans who somehow mistakes Bilquis the Queen of Sheba with the Whore of Babylon.
