Queen of Swords

Show Summary

1817, Tessa Alvarado finishing her education in Madrid which has included secret sword lessons learns of her fathers accidental death. Returning to California with her Gypsy friend and servant Marta, she finds her father's manservant a thief, her home in ruins, and the local people under the rule of a tyrannical governor. Marta discovers her father was murdered but Tessa is helpless in the face of a wall of silence. In a dream her father comes to her and speaks of his hidden gold, his murder, and of his "Avenging Angel." Seeking justice Tessa decides her destiny is to become that Avenging Angel behind the mask of The Queen of Swords. The name is taken from one of Marta's Tarot cards. As in the theme song Behind the Mask, all the characters have secrets to hide, which are explored over the 22 episodes.
