With the exception of greater physical beauty and faster body health regeneration, there are no major physical differences between normal people and witches. They can also have unnatural hair color, as seen in the picture to the right with Sylvie (top) and Shavi (middle).
Witches are mortal women who start to absorb magic power, and become a new species. Witches awaken their powers at a random moment in their lives, usually during puberty; if a woman doesn't awaken by the time they turn 18, they will never be a witch for their rest of their lifespan. Witches are sterile, perhaps due to the fact that they have magic power and cannot share it with mortals. Roland, however, believes it may be due to witches being an evolved form of humanity and thus have genetic difference that make their DNA incompatible for reproduction with old humanity.
About 1 out of 100 women can become a witch, and then only 1 in 10 witches exhibit "combat" powers, this includes Extraordinaries. Evolution may unlock combat powers for initially non-combat witches.
There are 3 important events for a witch:
- Day of Awakening: Awakening of their ability.
- Day of Adulthood: Improvement of their ability with a chance to gain a Branch ability, occurring at the age of 18.
- High Awakening / Evolution: Improvement of the ability by obtaining a better understanding of their powers and possible use.
Witches can feel an awakening call. Magic power would gather inside a witch's body on the aforementioned Day of Awakening. During this process, a witch would not only be able to feel the weird changes inside her body, but also, for a majority of witches, they would be unable to restrain the strange magic power, causing them to use their newly-gained ability involuntarily.
For witches who awakened only near the end of adulthood, it was as if they never had a Day of Adulthood. Their magic powers were never able to develop and thus remained in the pre-adulthood form forever. Naturally, they didn't have the derivative skills and steady growth that were unique to adulthood. We don't know if such witches were able to have High Awakenings, but if they were unable to develop, the problems with their magic power would bug them for the rest of their lives.
The self-reinforcing witches are called Extraordinaries. These witches never suffer magic energy backlash as their bodies are always using magic energy. They are also immune to the effects of God stone of Retaliation, and can use them offensively. Evolved Extraordinaries are called Transcendants.
The red mist required for the Demons' respiration is fatal to witches.
A witches' body gathers magic energy starting from the day they awaken. This fuels their magic ability(ies). What kind of magic ability they have can't be determined beforehand, but upon awakening the witch mysteriously 'knows' what her ability is. Witches also get the following enhancements after awakening: slight self-healing, physical beauty, slower aging, in general live healthier, and the temperament is changed too.
Though it can vary, witches have greater resistance to getting drunk. Wendy and Scroll get drunk off one bottle, while Lightning has outdrunk numerous sailors before being legal drinking age.

- Witches quickly recuperate their strength with some sleep, whether due to physical or magical exhaustion.
- Anna slept for a few days after expending all her magic, though her Day of Adulthood seemed to hasten her recovery.
