The Witch of the Wilds ("The Witch" for short) is a fictional character featured in the Junkenstein legend told by Reinhardt Wilhelm in Junkenstein and in the comic The Return of Junkenstein.

She is one of the bosses in the seasonal brawl Junkenstein's Revenge.

Story[edit | edit source]

The Witch of the Wilds was a vile being of magic who forged blood pacts with desperate people. One such person was Doctor Jamison Junkenstein whom she and her servant The Reaper visited in his greatest hour of need. She offered Junkenstein the Spark of Life in return for a favor, which he accepted. He used the Spark of Life to animate his Monster which he released to lay waste to the town of Adlersbrunn as revenge for the townspeople's treatment of him.[1]

The Witch and The Reaper later joined Junkenstein, his Monster, as well as his army of Zomnics in the doctor's bid to swarm the castle of the Lord of Adlersbrunn. The Lord fought back with the help of four wanderers who battled the dark forces and won.[2] They defeated Junkenstein's army and killed him, but since the Witch still needed the doctor to repay his debt to her, she resurrected him. He proceeded to build a new, stronger army to attack Adlersbrunn a second time. The Witch and her allies faced four new heroes that were called upon by the Lord, and the Witch, too, called on a new servant, The Summoner, to assist her in the fight.[3]

Trivia[edit | edit source]
