We do not have warts and green skin. We do not sacrifice babies and ride brooms. Some do work with nature. Some do follow a diety or dieties. Some are devout to religious practice. Some are athiest. No we can not throw fire balls or transform you into anything other than human. We take our work serious. Help me out here. This list is huge. Be specific. What kind of witch character? Wiccan? Atheist witch? Satanic witch?
Something to keep in mind, some people are born with ability and others in the same family line cannot do the same, some things are inherited to first born in the family and some things skip generations an so on, what's your book gana be about?
First off its got nothing to do with being born a certain way, nephew. Magick is inherent in every man women and child. Knowing how to harness it is not. If its a story of a half werewolf and half witch I hardly believe your goal is to get the facts strait. Nonetheless, you will have to be more specific if you ever want answers. What is it you wish to know, exactly.
Well I can honestly say the gift of glimpsing the future has been on my Moms side for generations back. That is psychic ability though not witchcraft. To be realistic you could say that they were born into a Norse or Celtic or Native American or whatever bloodline that had psychic ability and happened to practice witchcraft. You can not be born a witch per say, in so much as you can be born into a bloodline who has gifts and have practiced witchcraft as far back as any can remember. You could also have an ancient set of amulets that date back to 1000 BC and belonged to the first psychic twins that chose to practice witchcraft. To keep some reality to it that is what I suggest. Candle Magic and incense for meditation is realistic and general audiences can relate to it. Who doesnt light candles for any number of reasons around the world. Sorry but thats as helpful as I care to be on this topic. Hope it helps. :-)
