The Witch is a supporting character of the movie Brave.



When the Wisps led Merida into the Witch's hut, the Witch said if there's anything she likes of her wooden stocking. Merida saw the old woman's broom moved when she revealed the old Crone's true nature, the old Witch tells Merida to get out for not buying anything. Merida begged a spell to change her mother's fate so the queen will forget about marriage. The Witch made a spell cake and said she could trust her. After Merida left, the Witch had moved away on a vacation to the Wickerman's festival in Stornway. After the bear transformation, Merida found her deserted hut. The ghost of the Witch told Merida to break the spell, and find the second sunrise and left Merida a riddle. The Witch isn't seen for the rest of the film.
