Witches are female creatures with magical powers who resemble humans. They are formidable and their powers are seemingly unlimited. However, according to Jenka, even witches eventually grow old and die, implying that their powers do not extend to immortality. However, they clearly live much longer than humans and age slowly as well, as Jenka has lived on the Island since its creation and is still alive, and Misery has been on the Island for almost as long, but still appears youthful. Considering this and Possesed Misery's form, it is possible that their powers allow them to look like humans when they may not actually be the same species.
