The caste of witch is the second lowest ranking female caste. It refers to a jeweled female that does not belong to any of the other castes. They are higher in the hierarchy than Blood Females and Blood Males, as well as being equal in status to a Warlord. Witches have the option of serving in a Court, Coven, or even enter into personal service. It is not necessary for them to do so unless they wish however. A strong witch may also sometimes be trained to become a Healer, Priestess, or Black Widow.
