Lupusregina Beta is a brown-skinned beauty with an athletic look and red hair tied in two long braids. She wears a maid uniform with short sleeves and long black gloves with a skirt that has a long slit on its left side, revealing thigh-high white stockings. She is equipped with an imposing black and silver scepter slung across her back.
Lupusregina Beta has a very bright and outgoing personality but is able to act accordingly like a perfect lady. She is sociable and friendly towards humans. However, this is only a mask to conceal her brutal and cunning personality. She also enjoys making lewd jokes to people like Enri.
Lupusregina tends to use her 'Complete Invisibility' spell frequently in order to appear behind someone's back without being detected, as she loves to startle people. Yuri has claimed that Lupusregina can be as sadistic and evil as her sister Solution. The author Maruyama has stated on Twitter that during a full-moon at nighttime, she becomes a little bit crueler.
Lupusregina is considered the friendliest of the battle maids by the Homunculus Maids. They also think that being approached by her is a sign of good fortune.
In the Web Novel, she is not a sadist, just a cheerful character who loves to eat.
Lupusregina Beta was created by Beast King Mekongawa to be one of the battle maids, the Pleiades. They served as a last line of defense against intruders. However, because she is unlikely to be able to stand against enemy players who managed to come this far, her only real purpose was to distract the invaders until the guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown were able to fully prepare for their final stand in the throne room.

The Two Leaders Arc
- Main article: The Two Leaders Arc
Lupusregina is given a mission to spy in Carne Village and to protect three people in the village: Enri Emmot, Nfirea Bareare, and Lizzie Bareare. She visits the village with stone golems to help with the construction of the new wall. She is also the one responsible for delivering the alchemical items and apparatuses to the Bareares. She follows Enri, Nfirea, and the goblins when they explore the Great Forest of Tob in order to search for both herbs and information about the forest. She receives a newly developed potion made by the Bareares, and Nfirea wants her to report the news about it to Ainz. When Enri decides to make some drinks, she asks Lupusregina if she knows how to make delicious drinks. In response, Lupusregina claims that she knows how to, but she serves only the Supreme Beings as a maid and thus she does not help other people with chores and prefers instead to laze around.
Although the inhabitants of Carne Village decide to protect their village from the possible attacks of the army led by the Giant of the East and the Demon Snake of the West, Lupusregina suggests asking Ainz for help since he will easily solve the problem. However, Enri rejects her idea of asking help from Ainz a second time, stating that they should do as much as they can by themselves without depending on their savior too much. After hearing her answer, Lupusregina has a disappointed look on her face but says that they should work hard to keep the village safe. Once Ainz hears the news of Enri being present in E-Rantel, he scolds Lupusregina in his office for her carelessness and tells her to take her job seriously.
Afterward, Lupusregina talks with Enri about the matter of her being appointed to be the new chief of the village. Lupusregina gives her some advice, saying that it doesn't matter if Enri is the chief or someone else is the chief because she will mess up sooner or later. She says that there are only forty-one people who will never make a mistake and that there is no point worrying about what happens when Enri fails and that nobody is better suited for the job than her. Lupusregina also tells Enri that if the goblins can't save the village, they will prioritize her safety first. However, if she is the chief of the village, then this scenario will change as the village will become her property and they will fight to protect the village to the bitter end.
Shortly after, Lupusregina sees the villagers gathering in the village square because Enri has been appointed as the new chief. Yuri Alpha appears behind her and asks about Carne Village, saying that was the reason she got scolded by Ainz. Lupusregina says that a new leader has just arisen and wonders what kind of faces the villagers will make if they are attacked and everything is set ablaze, much to Yuri‘s displeasure. During the attack by monsters from Tob Forest, she saves Nfirea from the Giant troll and kills it.

Mass for the Dead Arc
- Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc
At the time of the Great Tomb of Nazarick's transfer to the New World, Lupusregina Beta was among the NPCs that were killed in the transition. Momonga finding the dungeon in ruins due to the strange Cracks and overrun by Chaos Beasts quickly revived her and the Pleiades with magic. Unfortunately the maid suffered a severe abnormal drop in levels since her revival as did the other NPCs that were brought back to life. When the protagonist appeared before Momonga who was suspicious on the identity of the homunculus, Lupusregina can be one maids that vouches on his identity as being a creation of Beast King Mekongawa. After the protagonist leaves with a Redeem Slime summon and Narberal Gamma, Lupusregina is left with the remaining Pleiades in Nazarick. To rebuild Nazarick, more information was needed to determine the new phenomena that was now affecting the dungeon. Thus Momonga had the maids train to prepare for a survey of the Cracks. When they were deemed ready Lupusregina and her sisters investigated the Cracks, fighting the Chaos Beasts to learn its secrets.
To avoid Nazarick being detected, Lupusregina was assigned to work with Mare to disguise the surface of Nazarick. Whilst altering the terrain of the landscape, Mare's magic disturbed a nest of Forest Worms prompting Lupusregina and Aura to fight them. They also have a close call when a human scout approaches the area, but Lupusregina and her comrades quickly capture him to be interrogated. Lupusregina with the rest of her sisters greeted Narberal Gamma upon her return from the outside world. From the doppelgänger she gained some insight on human society and started practicing on how to communicate with them by referring them as "maggots". It gained some attention from Sebas Tian and Momonga who intervene to correct some misconceptions and focus their training on hospitality. The maid would also serve as a messenger, relaying various communications throughout Nazarick and monitoring the Crack in the Throne Room.
Lupusregina would be asked by Cocytus to train with him, alongside Narberal Gamma. The two maids obliged and sparred with the Floor Guardian and were initially happy to help. But as the training became more intense, the two maids began to worry, bringing the issue to Albedo who notified Momonga. After Cocytus's session with the Overlord of Nazarick, the Pleiades members were poleaxed when Floor Guardian decided to allow for breaks. While patrolling a Crack on the Throne Room with Yuri, Lupusregina noticed Yuri to have something on her mind, though the other maid stated that she was fine but in reality was concerned with the discarded piles of debris. Accepting her words, Lupusregina excused herself, not knowing that Yuri would institute a plan to clean the piles on all the floors.
While guarding the Crack on the 6th Floor, Lupusregina faced an increase number of Chaos Beasts coming from the anomaly. One nearly go through the perimeter but the maid managed to kill it before it got away. Though she believed it to be no issue, her laxity of the seriousness of subjugating Chaos Beasts angered Momonga who reprimanded her for not reporting the increase in monsters. The maid was pulled from patrol so that she could reflect on her actions. Disappointed in herself and wishing to get back in Momonga's graces, Lupusregina took Cocytus's advice to consult with the protagonist. From him the maid learned the concept of "Ho-Ren-So" and put all her effort in improving her work ethics. The next time she was assigned a task, Lupusregina impressed Momonga on her diligence that he forgave her for her previous blunder. Her use of "Ho-Ren-So", causes Sebas Tian to have an idea to bringing an air of hospitality in Nazarick to provide a bit of relief to the work focused Floor Guardians. As part of his initiative, Lupusregina served to tea and snacks to Demiurge and Albedo while they were reviewing Nazarick's defense plan.
Later Lupusregina posed as an emissary from a distant country and sold ores to E-Rantel from an abandoned mine near the city. When visitors from another world came through the Crack on the 10th Floor, they were given sanctuary until Nazarick could find a way to return them back to their world. Meanwhile the visitors were asked to assist them in subjugating the Chaos Beasts that infested the Throne Room. One of the visitors, claiming to be a goddess, requested to be excused from the defense as it would require her to fight alongside the undead, which she had a phobia. Lupusregina who was chaperoning them permitted it.
Lupusregina would eventually get to explore the outside world when Momonga called the Pleiades to explore an island that connected to Nazarick via an unstable [Gate]. To assist them, she and her sisters were given swimsuits by Pandora's Actor. With the protagonist and Slimeko's help, the maid and her sisters found that the island was once a base for a pirate crew. Upon discovering the base the Nazarick agents came to fight several undead pirates. The team found a hidden port containing a wrecked ship. Once the wreck of the pirate ship was dredged up, they were attacked by a Giant Mollusk forcing the maids to fight together to slay it. The adventure though ended with the maids retrieving many abandoned valuables for Nazarick.
The maid would also join Cocytus's team, Cocytus and the Pleiades, for the Nazrzick Fighting Tournament which became the winners of the tournament. And also help to prepare for Nazarick's Christmas party, by making Christmas Cakes, though would annoy her sisters when she ate the ingredients.
When a being named Shiramochi-ō placed a spell over Nazarick, causing all the NPCs within the dungeon to fall under a New Year's celebration. Lupusregina and her sisters were compelled to go to Fake Nazarick to serve as guards for a Chaos Zone that took shape there. Lupusregina and her sister Yuri were placed to guard a [Gate] behind the area called the Takemikazuchi Shrine that led to the replica of the Throne Room. They would not allow anyone to pass even Momonga unless they were challenged and defeated. Momonga would defeat Shiramochi-ō though just before he met his end, the White Mochi King used the last of his power to turn back time, creating a loop of the events that saw Nazarick fall under his spell. Though in this new timeline, Lupusregina and her sisters challenged Momonga with a karuta game. The spell under Lupusregina would eventually be broken thanks to a repentant Shiramochi-ō sacrificing himself, though her memories while under the mental influence would be erased.
Lupusregina and her sister Solution would be attending to some new visitors to Nazarick and escorting them outside its confines. They were alerted to a disturbance near the dungeon and found a stranger to be caught by the Enhanced Treants. To prepare for a Yozakura, Lupusregina and her sisters prepared for the festivities, bringing the Chivalrous Costume for Demiurge, which caught Sebas Tian's attention.
For a brief period, Lupusregina enjoyed the company of Albedo, who was starting her new routine as a general maid as part of her new hands on initiative to make Nazarick more efficient. She and Yuri helped their maid junior to learn the proper way to prepare tea. And later at Albedo's recommendation, participated in a training exercise to test the security of the 9th Floor.
On a mission to investigate a lead of possible existence of players near a seaside village, Lupusregina joined the Pleiades in shadowing, the protagonist and his adventurer team. The mission soon developed into a collaborative effort with Blue Roses to assist a dwarf named Tsuibayaya in acquiring the scales of the Legendary Mermaid for his swimsuits. Due to the unexpected adamantite adventurers presence Lupusregina and the others had to act covertly without Blue Roses being the wiser. After the two parties separated to cover more ground to search the beach, Lupusregina and her sisters worked with the protagonist and his team to locate the place where the mermaid lived. Once the maids donned on their swimsuits, their search led them to a tide pool and the lair of the Legendary Mermaid. Lupusregina and the rest of Pleiades made themselves scarce to avoid Blue Roses becoming aware of their presence. After the Legendary Mermaid was fought against, the scales retrieved, and Blue Roses gone, the protagonist had Lupusregina and all the Pleiades dress in their swimsuits before Tsuibayaya to cement his cooperation to work for Nazarick.
In a series of hauntings that began to occur in the Tob Forests, the cause was believed to be the work of evil spirits that were unappeased due to the absence of the Harvest Festival. To cleanse the forest of the spirits, the protagonist organized a festival with the Pleiades in the ruins of Carne Village. However the festival was attacked by what seemed to be a [astral entity that arrived invisible, though Lupusregina that to her ability was able to see through it and point it out to her allies. The entity turned out be a fox girl named Kyuko who was at first hostile to the Nazarick denizens as she believed that they were enslaving Hamsuke. Once the misunderstandings were cleared up, Kyuko willingly joined Nazarick before joining in the festivities. Lupusregina commented on the new addition to their ranks with Yuri at the sidelines and was surprised to hear her sister say that the fox reminded her of someone in Nazarick.
The maid's healing abilities among others were called upon by Momonga, to heal a guest from another world who defeated a powerful entity known as the Grim Reaper. During the next phase of Nazarick's plan to take control of the Tripartite Alliance, Lupusregina and Yuri snuck into the quarantine area around the Northern Cave that housed a Crack and possibly thousands of trapped Chaos Beasts. To release the growing hordes, the maids broke the cavern walls to lead the monsters to the surface. Later Lupusregina acted as one of the Demon Maids of Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth. After the Demon Emperor made a deal with Emperor Jircniv Rune Farlord El-Nix to save E-Rantel, at the cost of the latter's life and the riches of the city, many of the citizens resisted the deal. To punish the humans that were resisting the plundering, Lupusregina and her sisters moved into to slaughter the city guards. In response members of Blue Roses rose to fight back.
After news about Miyoshi spread and that he was Momonga's bathing attendant, Lupusregina and many of the female NPCs petitioned to Momonga to allowed to challenge the Sapphire Slime for the position. To give them an opportunity to have the chance the Miyoshi Cup was created to determine if any of the participants had what it took to be a bathing attendant. The event also served as a way to select women that were needed to create a harem so as to activate a dangerous golem in Spa Resort Nazarick so CZ could disarm it. Lupusregina was among the finalists to be selected for the harem, but as for who would be the bathing attendant, Momonga defeated all of the participants in the final test thus allowing Miyoshi to go unchallenged.
After Nazarick received a priority [Message] from Cocytus that the Great Lake area was being frozen by a abnormal cold wave and threatening to freeze the lizardmen and driving the native monsters from the northern monsters, Lupusregina alongside Entoma and CZ were sent to determine the cause of the weather change. Before they left they were given Christmas Costumes to protect them from the frigid temperatures. They made their way towards the northern mountains following the source, on occasion fighting beasts that were trying to escape for the cold. The maids finally came to a cave where the found a Crack and the Frozen Giant that was continuously bashing anything that emerged from the phenomena, its strength creating the wind pressure that was creating the cold front. The monster proves to be very formidable but Entoma was able to deduce a weakness in its structure allowing the maids to set fire on it and cause to crumble. To draw its attention CZ used herself as bait long enough for Lupusregina to set fire on the vines holding the thing together. After their successful mission the group returned to Nazarick just in time for the second Christmas party.
Some old visitors to Nazarick returned to the dungeon and were being harassed by an evil clone of one of their associates. In a plan to seduce the clone and seal her power, Lupusregina participated in a plan to set up an Cat Café where she and Lupusregina used several cats to appeal to the clone and set the mood for the date. During this time Lupusregina befriended a new face among the guests of Nazarick.
The Pleiades were called into session by Yuri to brainstorm some ideas on what kind of chocolate she should help Aura make for Project Valentine. In her feedback she made a note that the chocolate from Valentine's Day was of a different quality served at the cantina. She acted as one of the judges for the taste test of the confections for the project. Lupusregina would also be present at the second campaign for LittleMass, and cheered alongside the general maids and her sisters at Acidity and Alkaline's final performance.
Lupusregina would also participate in a performance test of Tsuibayaya's swimsuits against those in the Treasury. Like the others she concluded that the dwarf's creations were still inferior to those in Nazarick's possession. Yuri seeking to escape the perverted gaze of Shalltear hid behind Lupusregina. When the "Nazarick Swimsuit Athletic Meet" was organized, Lupusregina chose to join Shalltear's Red Group. At the first competition called "Sandy Beach Obstacle Race" Lupusregina came in third place at the finish line, but White Group still won thanks to the extra points Albedo earned for defeating the obstacle monsters. In the second competition, which was the "Floating Island Survival", the maid was the first to jump on the platform and maintain her balance in the center of the float. Lupusregina would have to skirt to the edge of the platform to avoid being in Yuri's way when she landed on the float next, but Red Group won after the float broke in half due to the weight of White Group. At the last competition of "Mix Gender Water Cavalry", Lupusregina served as one of Shaltear's carriers along with Solution. They carried their team leader against not just Albedo's White Group but also Momonga. Ultimately the game turned into a tie, though Lupusregina and the participants celebrated the game as it proved to be a fun experience.
While the E-Rantel Magic Research Institute was setting up barriers around the Northern Cave to prevent another horde from escaping. Lupusregina, Yuri and Shalltear snuck into the area to do another search, this time to see if they could acquire another specimen of an unknown beast. The trio were unable to locate anything significant, resulting in Shalltear making the decision to head back to Nazarick on her own, while the two maids continued scouting the area. When the two maids returned back to Nazarick, they were surprised to learned that Shalltear was still not back yet. Later it was found that Shalltear was under the incomplete mental influence of a World Item. Lupusregina and Yuri learning of their comrade's fate tried to take the blame for the incident as Shalltear they believed that had they been present with Shalltear they could have prevent it. Momonga did not see it that way as it was he who dispatched them outside Nazraick.
Later at a Tsukimi organized by Momonga for the NPCs, Lupusregina and Entoma were seen happily chowing down on dango at the moon-viewing, though CZ asked them not to spray their food out while they were eating.

- (To Enri Emmot): "Really now, En-chan, I've been following behind you guys from the beginning~su. Strange, didn't you guys notice? I thought everyone was ignoring me because I had no presence~su"
- (To Nfirea): "What's all of this then~su. A pure, innocent boy's love, trampled just like that~su. Ah, what a riot~su! Fuha!... All right, enough kidding around, what really happened?"
- (To Unlai): "Welp, I'm the maid of Ainz-sama, and the other Supreme Beings, soooo... I don’t want to work for anyone else ~su. I just want to laze around su~. Let's not talk about work and all that other stuff."
- (To Enri): "...Hm? Something wrong? You've been sneaking glances my way recently. Are you in love with me? Ahhhhh, how troubling~ my, how shocking, to think that En-chan is a lesbian~su. Looks like I need to let everyone know~su."
- (To Enri): "What what what what's this? Oh no~ My heart's beating so fast. But please don't confess to me. I'm not a lesbian, I like the opposite sex. Noooooo~ Let me go~ I'm going to be raped su~"
- (To Enri): "Well, come lay your problems onto onee-san — from the secrets of H stuff to seducing men~"
- (To Enri about becoming the Chief of Carne Village): "Aw, do I have to answer you...hm, well, whatever. To begin with, if you're being pushed into this position and you know you’re going to regret it, then you'd better not take it on to begin with. Think about what kind of things you can and can’t handle."
- (To Enri): "This is just my opinion anyways; you should probably decide what you want to do on your own. Sit down, chew the cud a little, that sort of thing. For starters, let me put this out here, it doesn't matter if you're the chief or someone else is the chief, you're going to mess up sooner or later. There's only forty-one people I know who'll never make a mistake. 'Cos of that, no point worrying about what happens when you fail. But when you think about it, nobody's better suited to the job than you."
- (To Enri): "Welp, that's about it. Haaa, I don't want to play counselor at all. Then again if En-chan didn't become the chief, the beautiful tragedy would unfold and it would be more fun."
- (To Yuri Alpha): "That's right, Yuri-nee~ I mean every word of it. Every time I think of the people I get along with getting trampled like ants and exterminated with brute force, I can't help but laugh."
- (To Narberal Gamma about Ainz): "Ainz-sama is amazing! I can't believe he thought so far ahead, and in such detail! He must be some kind of monster!"
- (To Prince Barbro): "You're not needed in the plan of the highest one, of Ainz-sama. That's why you're going to die. Do you understand now?"
