Witches are humans who possess supernatural powers (witchcraft). Witches are evidently very long-lived and seem to reside primarily on Earth. To keep their existence secret, witches avoid revealing their powers to ordinary humans, similar to fairies.
In 1665, before Dimmsdale was named, Timmy Turner, who had travelled back in time, discovered that Alden Bitterroot was a warlock. Alden was planning to trick the townspeople into naming the town after him.
Powers and Abilities
- Witchcraft: Witches possess supernatural powers to an unknown extent. Alden Bitterroot was able to project his magical abilities through his hands, without the use of a wand or spellbook. Somehow, he was able to block fairy magic. Alden could levitate, project green energy bolts and fly on his broom (like many traditional witches).
- Supernatural Longevity: Witches seem to be extremely long-lived; Alden was able to survive for hundreds of years after falling into a well, possibly through the use of his magical abilities.
