Though the primary power of each witch is different, they all share many common abilities. This includes attracting human girls to them so they may steal their bodies. Witches are also capable of looking at the souls of others, and they're the only known race able to do so.
According to legend, centuries ago the devil created four spirits to terrorize those of the living. To this day these witches continue to steal bodies so that they may sustain their immortality. Despite how powerful and dangerous they are, witches care for nothing more than their own immortality. They would rather hide their identity as a witch indefinitely than risk being found out and killed by a hunter. Though they have a great offense, they lack in defense due to their human bodies.
Witches are also attempting to wipe out lycans for an unknown reason. However, because a lycan has an extremely powerful defense, a witch would likely lose to a lycan in battle. The exception is the fire witch, whose strength is one of the lycans' few weaknesses.
A few years before Leonard became a hunter one of the witches was successfully killed. Which witch this is however is currently unknown.
