A dead witch is a type of witch which lives on after death because the soul of the witch is bound to their bones. To stop a witch from returning they must either be burned or have their heart eaten, for any other method may cause the corpse to reanimate.

A dead witch’s appearance is that of her corpse. The soul of a witch is bound to their bones and a witches soul can remain in them after death. It is practiced by John Gregory to bury a dead witch upside down and caged, to prevent the witch from slowing digging her way to the surface; instead, the witch is tricked into digging a deeper grave.

Their powers are the same as many other witches, but in time their mind changes: they will forget their memories of life, whom their loved ones are and who their enemies are. Their magic also wanes quickly after resurrection and all they think about is blood. Some of them are very fast while others often drag themselves around. Every dead witch is capable of abnormal strength. Regardless, they can still be dangerous and can regain their strength after ingesting the blood of animals and humans. After years, if not killed, they will decay, their limbs will fall off & finally they will find themselves in the dark.
