History

Brought over to Hyperion Heights by the Dark Curse, the Witch ends up as a prisoner of Victoria Belfrey. Aware of her identity, she secretly conspires with her captor's daughter, Ivy Belfrey, who is also awake from the curse.

She is locked in shackles within Belfrey Towers, away from plain sight. After digging up her deceased daughter’s coffin, Victoria brings it to the Witch’s prison, hoping for her help to resurrect her daughter, but the Witch warns of the consequences Victoria will face in doing so. The two then discuss Lucy and Henry and how Victoria plans to surrender her belief. She then warns that while Victoria's plans are possible for success, she will, in-turn, have to deal with her.

Victoria later arrives with tea and expresses her struggles with making Lucy surrender her belief. The Witch advises to sever it by the root, and demands for her special brew, but Victoria is insistent on giving it to her, once her goals have been accomplished. Meanwhile, Ivy is plotting to manipulate Henry and his friends, and in order to earn their trust, has Roni taken to where the Witch is held prisoner, though the Witch herself remains hidden. Ivy later arrives to meet with the Witch, who accidentally scares her. She informs her that Henry's friends are earning her trust, and she endearingly compliments Ivy for fooling her mother. Before Ivy leaves, she requests the Witch to use her real name, Drizella.

Drizella once again arrives to visit the Witch, and presents her with hyacinths, by the Witch's request, grown by Lucy, from the Community Gardens. She impatiently grabs them, and bathes her nose in their scent, confirming to Drizella that they contain the tiniest seed of magic within them. She tells Drizella that they need a fertile ground to grow, much to her frustration, and reminds Drizella how she taught her to survive; imagine her mothers destruction. She also warns Drizella of the threat Regina could possibly face, admitting her uncertainty of what giving her the photo could endure, but Drizella ensures her that Regina won't be a problem for them. the Witch is later presented with the soil she needs, and uses her magic, in order to make the plant grow, and warns Drizella of the dangers in using it,
