About This Quiz

Witches are one of the most misunderstood groups in human history. They were mostly just women who sought out education and knowledge that went slightly - or perhaps a lot - outside of what society deemed was appropriate for them. Since what society deemed appropriate for women was typically a life of unpaid domestic or farmstead-based labor as the legal chattel of their nearest male relative, it was understandable that they sought other options.

The types of knowledge that witches sought out were not usually all about putting nasty hexes on people or cursing enemies. Instead, witches tended to look into medicinal knowledge, learning to heal and cure. They learned reading in different languages, and how to understand the weather and biology. They mostly tried to use their knowledge for good.

This quiz is not about those witches. This is about the dark witches: the hexers, the cursers, the ones who chant scary things from the shadows and make it all happen. This is about the witches who know that the best way to not end up on a pyre is to ensure the jerk who might put you on it ends up so terrorized by demons that he wouldn't even dare. If you're one of them, then you need an appropriate name. Let's figure out what it is.
