 Witch Hat Atelier Wiki

Witches are persons that are known to be users of magic, it being forbidden or not. Witches normally cast spells through runes drawn with a special ink, made from the sap of the Silverwood Tree.

History[edit | edit source]

Long ago, the vast majority, and potentially all people were aware of how magic functioned as well as how to perform it[1], making almost everyone of that era a "witch". However, as of the day of the pact, the Pointed Hat Witches wiped the memories of all other witches so they would forget everything about magic. This resulted in those who had their memories wiped no longer remembering how magic is performed, resulting in the Pointed Hats being the only remaining group of witches through process of elimination.

Those who do not know of the secured truth of magic are referred to by modern witches as the outsider. In accordance to Pointed Hat law, outsiders are never allowed to learn of the secret of magic, and in the event that they do, their memory must be wiped immediately.

The only group of individuals other than the Pointed Hat Witches who are shown to have knowledge of the secret of magic are the Brimmed Cap Group, a group of witches who have rebelled against the strict laws of the pointed hats and dabbled in forbidden magic. Unlike the Pointed Hat Witches, the Brimhats seem to have no qualms with letting Outsiders in on the secret of magic.

Society[edit | edit source]

Most witches are born in The Assembly Of Witches, an underwater magical city built for and by witches. The Assembly -and witch society as a whole- is governed by three outstanding witches who take on the responsability to manage the three important pillars of witch society; The Sage of Law, who adjucates the transgression of the statutes of witch law, The sage of friendship, who negotiates foreign relations with other nations, and the sage of instruction, who teaches young witches the principles of magic. Together they're known as The Three Sages.

A considerable amount of the funds available witches comes from the magic tax, a diplomatic agreement made between Pointy Hat witches and various nations across the land. In this agreement, the nations would pay a yearly tax to The Three Sages. In return, the witches would vow to help outsiders with their magic whenever posible, excluding scenarios of warfare or armed conflict. In addition, magical contraptions made by witches would be available for purchase to the general public.

In The Assembly, young witches are taught general education and the basics of magic under the tutelage of the Sage of Instruction. When they reach enough age and knowledge to pass the first the five tests; The Consent of the Crown, they're able become an apprentice for a witch of their choosing. From this point forward, the witch might remain on The Assembly or they might move out to live on land, depending on where their master's atelier is located.

Extinct Groups[edit | edit source]

Other than the Brimmed Hat Group and the Pointed Hat Witches, all other groups of witches have been wiped out. The only group of witches explicitly stated to have gone extinct are the Healing Witches of old [2], however it is likely that there are more.
