Story: Witch of Morthin
In this tale, the witches are both an integrated part of the kingdom and yet still a separate community. So when something drastic happened to one of my Main Characters, the surrounding people knew exactly who to call. And enter Myina.
It’s just as well, really, as my other Main Character is clueless on these matters.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but there really is something about an elderly woman with magic that automatically demands respect.
