Witches by Hans Baldung Grien (Woodcut, 1508)

A witch is a person with the power to effect change by magical means ("Witchcraft"). A witch can be either male or female, as they connect with the elements and forces of nature, in order to practice sorcery.


While no complete history of witchcraft has been provided, the Lockhart family of witches is known to have originated since the foundation of witchcraft.


While few have been shown to harness mystical energy and effectively practice magic, witches recieve their magical power as a result of heredity. The offspring of two witches will almost always be witches. Though the probablity of the offpsring of a witch and a non-witch, or a mortal, being witches are reduced to the 50%. No further explanation has been given regarding the mechanics or heritability of these genetics, but it's likely the source of their magical power, or the necessary instructions to produce their magic.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

The primary ability of witches is to manipulate magic as an inborn attribute. They access or use magic in a variety of ways to achieve a number of fantastic feats.

  • Channeling: The act of drawing or summoning other forms of energy, by focusing on the magic of another witch.
  • Conjuration: The act of calling, commanding, or summoning an element, object, person, or spirit already in existence.
  • Elemental Control: The act of controlling and manipulating the elements of air, earth, fire, water, and weather.
  • Mind Control: The act of controlling and manipulating the minds of humans.
  • Mind Stunning: The act of bemusing and rendering someone unconscious.
  • Pain Infliction: The act of creating and inflicting excruciating pain upon another person, especially vampires.
  • Possesion: The ability for another being to take control of another being's form, e.g. body. Possession is different from mind control, by the fact that the being has to physically enter the other, to control them.
  • Precognition: The act of foreseeing future events and happenings.
  • Spell Casting: The act of changing and controlling events by magical influence.
  • Telekinesis: The act of controlling and manipulating the movements of objects and persons.
  • Witches Brew: The act of brewing and concocting supernatural elixirs and potions that contain mystical properties.

Weaknesses and vulnerabilitiesEdit

  • Fear: A distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the condition or feeling of being afraid could cause a witch to temporarily lose their powers.
  • Overuse Of Magic: The excessive use of magic could lead a witch to death from over-exertion.


  • Grimoires: A family journal documented with ancient recipes, rituals, and spells.
  • Candles: Commonly seen tools used to focus a witch's spell and/or ritual.
  • Talismans: Materials used to amplify a witch’s power.
  • Herbs and Roots: Various herbs and roots possess inherent mystical properties effective for magical practice commonly used in brewing elixirs or potions.

Witch huntersEdit

Throughout history, the presence of witches has had various impacts on the lives of mortals. At some point a religious society was formed which marked the beginning of the established vigilantes called Witch Hunters. These vigilantes hunt witches out of pure hatred and fear of witches, believing all magic to be evil and Satanic in origin, though uniquely enough they're able to identify between white and dark magic. They're vast knowledge and multiple numbers make them dangerous threats
