As witches are increasingly featured in S2 of A Discovery of Witches, we bet you’re asking yourself:
What in the Witch is a Weaver?
At AMC, we had the same question, so we’ve studied up on weavers in order to give you some key facts.
Weavers have access to skills that not all witches have, including the ability to create new spells. ‘Normal’ witches rely on the old books, aka ‘Book of Shadows’ and their fellow witches for spells.
Weavers can’t use the spells that already exist in books, so they must ‘weave’ their own. There’s a lot of pressure on weavers due to their unique nature.
In the simplest terms, they must create magic that is unique in nature. And as it turns out, making new and complex spells, takes a lot of witch power.
