A winter witch is the name given to the variant of a normal witch who specializes in magic of cold.123


In Irrisen, a winter witch may also be a member of the Jadwiga, the nobility of Irrisen.4 They are the granddaughters of Baba Yaga, and are viewed with enormous respect and fear in their homeland.5 The White Witches are the exclusively female winter witches who govern and administer Irrisen.6

Winter witches of Irrisen take hardy familiars; prime examples include foxes, hares, penguins, ice mephits, and ice elementals.7
