The Witch of the Woods
Mysterious old woman
The Witch has been in the Woods for a long time, as long as anyone – even the Durgans – can remember. Sometimes sinister, sometimes haughty, sometimes helpful, she is tolerated or feared rather than loved. She seems to be able to change forms – appearing sometimes as a clawed fiend, sometimes as a beautiful young woman, sometimes as a crone, and sometimes as a great black stag. Whatever her form, she is powerful and deadly if crossed, capable of working magic beyond mortal ken. Some say that she consorts with demons; others, that she is an agent of some forgotten Immortal. None speak of her louder than a whisper.
