Lest the mother kills the child, the new queen is therefore removed from the mother hive as quickly as possible. A small escort of workers is given to her, to nurture and care for her until she is fit to rule and expand the new hive.
Most queens never meet their parent, which - given their naturally aggressive territorial behaviour - is a good thing. The pheromone mix alone - familiar, yet different - is enough to make most queens fly into a minor frenzy.
Dear lord.. Looking at this art and the concept of the Lacera Hive, I could not help but to envision an alternate universe where Lacera herself smashs Miasma's egg and is like... the alternative Changeling Queen alongside the four others. Then again, Miasma did say that she was ugly both inside out so I have absolutely NO idea any of her intentions were or if she would even be willing meet up with other changeling queens or not.
Oh geez. Yeah, that would be horrifying and totally in character for her. I can't imagine her going to any meetings. If she encountered any of the other ones, she'd probably try to kill them and enslave their hives.
So both are true? It is said are two possible options that have the new queen whn they are finally prepare to rule?
And now I take the advantange to ask another question related to the changeings: in your headcanon how long could be the life span of a "normal" changeling? The same as a pony?
Of course, Miasma looks almost nothing like her mother, so it may have been coincidence that the daughters seemed to share color schemes.
(Not sure where you take "shared colour scheme" from when it comes to Calliphora and Lacera...one's red and the other purple?)
