Witches were a type of wizard that gained instruction from entities outside the Prime Material Plane. Almost all Witches were female, but a few male Witches existed and were usually called Warlocks.[note 1]
On the Prime Material Plane, witches were often inhabitants of rural villages or land that bordered wilderness.
In the Feywild, witches typically received their magic from either an archfey or the goddess Sehanine Moonbow. Hamadryads were one of many races in the Feywild known to occasionally be granted magic and take on the mantle of a witch.
