In Terry Pratchet’s Discworld universe, he has five books that focus on Tiffany Aching, a trainee witch.
She has a mix of non-magical and magical powers.
- First Sight
- Second, Third, and Fourth Thoughts
Her magical powers are:
- An unnamed ability to connect to the land
- Borrowing - kind of like astral projection
- Taking something into her (e.g., heat) and channeling it away without harming herself
- Hearing spill words (words almost spoken)
I was trying to describe what type of witch she was but got stuck because her skills are a mix of witch types and doctor/medical skills with a bit of scholar thrown in.
Calling her a Discworld witch, to someone who isn’t familiar with the books, doesn’t encompass everything.
So what kind of witch is she?
