Olive Branch is very proud of her discipline and obsessed with the superiority of the Life element. Haffaton once had a large number of powerful casters that were responsible for a lot of the side's success. In spite of this, Olive Branch caused them all to die from the Heroine buds in order to "prove" the superiority of her own arts.
After Goodminton reclaimed the city of Goodfinger from Haffaton, Wanda found and wore raiment that - according to Delphie - originally belonged to Olive. Delphie claims that there is some Signamancy and even Date-a-mancy between Olive and Wanda, and that their Fates are intertwined.IPTSF Text 9
As of IPTSF Text 51, it's been revealed that Olive had turned the Ruler of Haffaton, Judy Gale, into a flower-addicted puppet and been keeping her in the Olive Garden. This has allowed Olive the freedom to manage the Side however she wishes, and the plausible deniability during parleys of only being the Chief Caster for her side, and not the real power.
Olive was Heir Designate to Judy Gale, Overlady of Haffaton. While she effectively ruled Haffaton, Duty prevented Olive from directly acting against Judy by directly overthrowing her. However, her Loyalty was so low that she was still perfectly willing to leave a unit likely to murder her nearby, namely Jillian, who was Predicted to kill the ruler of Haffaton. To keep her ruler better under her grip and possibly to increase the chance that Judy would be the ruler fated to croak, Olive took away the Arkenshoes her ruler owned, making it difficult for Judy to flee.
Wanda managed to use Findamancy to recover the shoes and return them to Judy. As Judy departed from Erfworld, Olive became the new ruler of Haffaton, which in turn made her the likely subject of Jillian's prediction.
