The Witch is a sultry sorceress enemy introduced in VIII.

Characteristics[edit]

The witch takes the appearance of a busty young woman with yellow eyes, sickly pale blue skin, and dark blue hair. Witches are dressed in form-fitting black gowns decorated in an alternating red and purple diamond pattern that terminates in a purple and red skirt, accessorized with a silver choker and black bracelets. Six alternately colored, crystal-tipped magical staves orbit around them while a red-eyed black orb levitates above the monsters out stretched hands. All seven items will sway and maneuver around a witch when she is casting a spell.

Siren[edit]

Sirens are humanoid monsters with the appearance of beautiful women, much like their mythological namesake. They have light skin, long blonde hair, and pointed ears, as well as sharp fangs. Sirens wear gold chokers, green bracelets, and orange strapless, floor-length gowns with green and white diamond patterns on the bodice and ending in a star-shaped skirt. Sirens have six white wands tipped with crystals of different colors floating around them and a blue eye-shaped orb that floats above their head, which they use to attack. They use their voluptuous bodies to charm unsuspecting sailors.

Etymology[edit]

In Greek mythology, sirens were dangerous creatures that appear like beautiful women. They could lure nearby sailors with the sound of their enchanting voice to shipwreck.
