Hollow Witch 
Upon hearing that Kai distrusts her, the woman reverts into her natural witch form and attacks Kai. She begins to suck out his "sweet young breath," until Adam strikes her from behind, and she falls unconscious.
The three friends run toward the exit, but before they can escape, a second young woman, identical to the first, enters carrying an ambrosia salad and cheerfully offering to share it. Upon noticing the first witch on the floor, the second reverts to natural witch form and attacks Mira. Adam struggles with the witch for a moment before Kai knocks her unconscious. They help Mira up and start towards the exit, but the witch chases after them. Adam hits her with a large bone, causing her to fall backwards into the oven where she is baked to death.
The witches seen can assume one of two forms: a beautiful, youthful form and a crone-like form. In their youthful form, the witches look quite beautiful. They have light skin and blonde hair worn in beehive style. They wear a coral pink dress with a matching bow in their hair, a white apron, and red high-heeled shoes. They have the overall appearance of a 1950s housewife. In their more decrepit form, the witches have leathery green skin, piercing yellow eyes, pointed ears, and disheveled white hair. Even their dresses look older and more tattered in their witchly form.
Perhaps to make up for the way they had treated her, the community gave her a Christian burial. But because she was a witch, they laid her to rest in an unmarked grave in an isolated area of the Old Dutch Burying Ground.
Hulda: The Other Legend of Sleepy Hollow returns this fall to The Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow. Featuring Carla Lynne Hall, with an original score performed by Jim Keyes, this one-woman show tells the story of Hulda of Bohemia, a woman who was originally shunned in Sleepy Hollow for being a witch, but later became a Revolutionary War hero.
I'm back in Hollow Cove, the flamboyant paranormal community, where nymphs, werewolves, trolls, shifters, witches, and other paranormals live comfortable lives away from prying human eyes. As I settle into my new life, I decide to accept my aunts' proposal and join the family business - the business of protecting our town and killing anything that would want to harm it. But I've been away from the paranormal world for quite some time, and my magical abilities are a little bit rusty. Heck, they're practically invisible.
Okay, so I'm in trouble. Big trouble. I'm broke. Worse, my boyfriend of five years just dumped me. What do I do? I move in with my three eccentric aunts in their family home, Davenport House. Sounds exciting, only this massive farmhouse likes to eat men. If I were a regular human, I would have run out screaming like a banshee. As a witch - I do absolutely nothing. Hey, maybe they deserved it? I'm back in Hollow Cove, the flamboyant paranormal community, where nymphs, werewolves, trolls, shifters, witches, and other paranormals live comfortable lives away from prying human eyes.
They took my Merlin license away. To get it back, I must complete the witch trials. Okay, so I have to pass a few magical trials. No big deal. Right? Wrong. The trials are treacherous, ominous, and deadly. I'm not prepared for such brutal, magical tests, but I can't stop. Stopping means failure, and too many people are counting on me. But then the worst happens. While I'm trying to focus on the trials, the local baker in Hollow Cove is poisoned and killed. And someone I care about is blamed.
We killed someone.... Okay, not exactly the news I wanted to hear from my aunts. But here it was. Now, what the hell was I supposed to do with it? Just when I thought I could finally get a well-deserved break from the shitshow I'd been living for the past months, I get hit with this. To make matters worse, an investigator starts snooping around Hollow Cove, asking questions about my aunts. If they're found guilty of this murder, it's a one-way ticket to Grimway Citadel - the witch prison.
Lucifer took my magic. Okay, so technically, Derrick the incubus douche took it, but he was Lucifer's guy and following orders. Still, I can't be a witch or a Merlin without magic. Can my life get any worse? Of course, it can. As I try to adjust and accept life without a drop of magic in my veins, Marcus disappears. Well, not exactly, more like he ghosts me. He's not returning my calls or my texts. Just when I think I finally have my love life on track, it gets derailed, and my heart is slowly torn apart.
As a practicer of Powwow, not to be confused with a Native American powwow, Blymire knew the curse could not be removed until the identity of the one who cast the hex was discovered. Over several years, he consulted more than 20 witches, but none could help.
Eventually, Blymire made his way to Marietta, where he met Nellie Noll. Well into her nineties, she was a witch with a formidable reputation. Through six sessions, Noll teased out that a powerful spell had been cast on Blymire. Noll explained this spell, as Blymire had expected, was the cause of his bad health and horrible luck. Noll even identified rival witch Nelson Rehmeyer as the villain who had hexed Blymire.
Armed with sticks and 25 feet of rope, the trio demanded that the old witch surrender his spell book. When Rehmeyer refused, a fight ensued. Blymire choked him, and Curry smashed him in the head with a block of wood. At trial, Blymire accused Curry of delivering the fatal blow at 12:01 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day.

The documentary investigates the 1928 murder of a Pennsylvania farmer and the allegations of witchcraft that shocked the nation.
Humans who possess mystical or magical abilities are called "witches" or "warlocks", for females and males, respectively. The origins of witchcraft currently remains unknown. However, it is believed that witches and warlocks have existed since the beginning of humanity, passing down their knowledge and skills through generations of family bloodlines. Contrary to popular belief, a witch or warlock's powers are not demonic in nature, although some may use his or her abilities to do evil, oftentimes summoning dark forces by which to achieve their own ends. It appears that the ability to harness magic is hereditary, as three members of the Van Tassel clan have possessed magic; Helena Van Tassel, Katrina Crane, and Jeremy Crane. Furthermore, Jeremy Crane was seen using pyrokinesis as a baby and animating a Golem to protect him as a child.
Witches can draw their power from many different sources. Some, like Katrina, draw their powers from nature, while others may draw it from other places, such as blood, fire, the lunar cycles, the stars, the sun, or even the cosmos itself. Depending on the individual, some witches and warlocks can choose to join or form covens, while others remain solitary, practicing their powers in secret.
Henry spoke about an "Awakening Ritual" that turns mortals who have witch heritage into witches, though he did not elaborate on why the ritual was needed, as it was not required back in the 1700s. This may imply that witches are an extinct or dying breed as of the 21st century, at least in Sleepy Hollow. It is currently unknown if this is the case in other parts of the world.
Katrina Crane claimed that George Washington promised her coven that the Thirteen Colonies would no longer persecute witches, thereby allowing them to reintegrate into society, under the condition that they used their magic to help win the Revolutionary War. Apparently, he did not live up to this agreement, as witches continued to be persecuted and had to remain in hiding.
There are two known covens that witches and warlocks are associated to. One is known as the Sisterhood of the Radiant Heart, which practices magic for benevolent purposes, and the other is known as the Order of the Blood Moon, which practices magic for malevolent purposes. In the 17th century, there was a powerful coven located in Salem, Massachusetts, which practiced magic for benevolent purposes.
Magic is the power to affect change by supernatural means. Magic can often be split into black and white, depending on the situation, and may even be neutral. All creatures (both human and non-human) are connected to this power. While it is possible for mortals to cast spells and/or perform other feats of magic with the aid of supernatural artifacts or otherworldly assistance, witches and warlocks generally have more knowledge and understanding of paranormal energies as well as the forces that charge the entire universe, which they are connected to from the moment of their birth and can inherently control without assistance. When a witch or warlock uses their magic, sometimes their eyes turn white. Some witches and warlocks ingest Moonflower, or Jimsonweed, to strengthen their magic.
Miss Mould You see, being a witch isn't just about the magic. It's about who you are. What's inside you. Your imagination, compassion, selflessness. It's about being brave and overcoming your fears, no matter how afraid you are.
Miss Cackle: Agatha might listen to reason. Surely it's worth a try! Esmerelda gave up her magic for me.Miss Hardbroom: Agatha would never restore Esmerelda's magic. It would end in disaster. This school, and all the witches in it, is your life. I won't let you risk it. Not even for Esmerelda Hallow.Miss Cackle: You're right, Hecate.
She is the second wife of Baltus Van Tassel and the stepmother of Katrina Anne Van Tassel, secretly known as an evil witch bent on gaining land rights to herself and revenge against the ones who ruined her family's lives through a string of murders by controlling the Headless Horseman.
She was born as Mary Archer, one of the two daughters of a happily married couple living in a cottage near Sleepy Hollow. When Mary was still a little girl, her father unexpectedly died for some unknown reason, and the family's landlord Sir Peter Van Garrett, evicted them and sold their home to his relatives, the Van Tassels. Due to Mary's mother being suspected of doing witchcraft, no one in the town was willing to take the Archers in or give them any sort of help, so the family had to take refuge in the Western Woods. Mary's mother later died within a year afterward, forcing her and her sister to fend for themselves in the Western Woods. 041b061a72
