Description[edit | edit source]

Witches are creatures that feed off of misery and spread curses. Witches will affect humans near them through the use of a Witch's Kiss. They hide within labyrinths. Once a witch is disposed of by a magical girl, they will drop a Grief Seed, which magical girls use to control the darkness in their Soul Gem. Witches are also known to summon familiars to defend themselves or maintain their magical constructs. A familiar can eventually grow into a new witch after it consumes four or five humans.

Origin[edit | edit source]

The Witch Charlotte

Witches are born when a magical girl's soul gem is tainted to the point where it becomes a grief seed. From these seeds, a witch will erupt.

A soul gem's darkness will spread when its host uses magic, and if enough magic is used, the damage will be permanent and a witch will be born. Moreover, the negative feelings from the magical girls themselves can act as a catalyst to hasten the Soul Gem tainting process.
