Warlocks are evil magical beings, often seen as the evil counterparts to witches. Their main goal is killing witches and obtaining their powers to become more powerful. Warlocks are pure evil beings that possess no soul. They are closely related to witches, being described as two sides of the same coin.
Becoming a WarlockEdit
There a several ways to become a warlock;
- One can be born as a warlock if at least one parent is a warlock.
- Witches can kill other witches and steal their powers, which betrays the Wiccan Rede and causes them to lose their soul, turning them into warlocks.
- Witches can be converted into warlocks through dark rituals, such as a dark binding ceremony to a warlock.
- Familiars, guides to new witches, can betray their masters and kill them, which transforms them into warlocks.
The Collectors are a breed of warlocks that have the unique power to absorb knowledge from the minds of others. They do this by transforming their fingers into long needles that they use to penetrate a being's mind. These warlocks have a thirst for knowledge and seek to learn all they can by stealing the minds of others.
Dragon Warlocks come from a long lineage that spawned from the terrible union of a dragon and a sorceress. These warlocks possess the power of flight and can breath fire. They work as assassins and are considered the most dangerous witch killers in existence.
Familiar Warlocks are born when a familiar betrays and kills it's witch. It then absorbs the witch's power and gains human form for a period of time, in which they must destroy the remains of their former lives to permanently become a warlock.
Hybrids are born from the union of a warlock and another being. One known hybrid species of a warlock is that of a half-warlock, born to a warlock and a mortal.
