Queen Esther is a young small-town Jewish leek (part of the onion family), who only appeared as the main protagonist in Esther... The Girl Who Became Queen. Esther's arch-nemesis is Haman, the King's second-in-command, who is played by Mr. Lunt. She became queen after Haman threw out Queen Vashti, the original queen. Esther has a cousin named Mordecai and a huge family. Mordecai often calls her "Essie." Word has it that her hair was deemed too difficult to animate, requiring the introduction of another female lead which eventually became Petunia Rhubarb.
