For other uses of the term Witch, see Witch (disambiguation).

The Witch, also known as the Mage, is a recurring humanoid class in the Disgaea series first introduced in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.

Appearance[]

In Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, they are light skinned girls who wear a black dress and a white hairband. They have triangular pointy ears. They wear red sandals on their feet.

Starting in Disgaea 2 they wear a large bow on their head, and the dress they wear is longer than in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness to the point that they come close to covering up their boots. They also wear pearl earrings and long black boots.

Characteristics[]

Witches are female magic users. Mages are relaxed and optimistic, but less dedicated than Magicians. Witches are known among themselves as Troyra, which comes from "troylab", a word meaning "self sacrifice" in an ancient language. The Witch's ribbon is given to them by the Magic Association at a young age and helps them control their power and serves as an antenna for receiving information about new magic from the Association. This also makes them more optimistic as a side effect of not being required to study.

They can learn magic spells corresponding to their aligned element, but some can learn spells from three elements at once or even all four elements. However, the ones aligned to a specific element are more easily able to learn the most powerful versions of their spells.

Gameplay[]

They specialize in using spells to deal elemental damage from a distance. From the second game onward they use less SP for skills, meaning that there is a choice given to the player in which they can either use Witches to not burn out on SP as quickly, or use Magicians to deal the most damage but burn out SP quicker.

Appearances[]

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness[]

Mages were introduced in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness as one of the starting classes.

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories[]

They return as a starting class now called Witch. Their passive ability decreases the SP cost of spells.

Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice[]

Main article: Witch (Disgaea 3)

The Witch returns as a starting class. They retain the effect to decrease SP costs, now turned into their main Evility.

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten[]

Main article: Witch (Disgaea 4)

The Witch appears as a starting class. They retain their functionality from the previous game.

Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness[]

Main article: Witch (Disgaea D2)

The Witch appears as a starting class. A new feature when creating Witches involves choosing their Element forte. Rather than being determined by class tier, a Witch learns spells matching their chosen forte. Hence, creating a Red Mage who uses either Wind or Ice magic rather than the usual Fire magic is a possibility. However, this also means none of their tiers learn multiple elements anymore.

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance[]

Main article: Witch (Disgaea 5)

The Witch appears as a starting class. Like in Disgaea D2, her skillset is chosen by forte rather than by tier.

Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny[]

Main article: Witch (Disgaea 6)

Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless[]

Main article: Witch (Disgaea 7)

The Witch appears as a starting class.

Other Appearances[]

Phantom Brave[]

The Witches in Phantom Brave excel at the use of magical skills, so their weapons of choice were often books, lithographs, or staves. The Witches would always learn one set of elemental skills on their own, all the way up to Omega. If you speak to a Witch on Phantom Isle, she allows you to rearrange the skills of a character or item.

Makai Kingdom[]

The Mages in Makai Kingdom excel at using books, staves, and magnets as their main weapon. Much like the mages of Disgaea, their defense is often low, making it so a player has to avoid having their mage hit. Though they don't have the first three tiers like Disgaea Mages, a Mage will be randomly given Fire, Wind, or Ice magic when she is created/reincarnated.
