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]

Favored familiars

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