Now witches are also special in their own little way just like shifters. They have their own unique power, one unique power. With that power of course comes their weaknesses so weaknesses differ from witch to witch. Powers also differ witch to witch, usually dealing with linage as well. If mom is a witch your character most likely will get that power or something close to it. Yes that's right, if mom is a pyrokinetic that means your character can't by a hydrokinetic and vice versa. Powers must be linked by linage end of story. And only one power per character, even if both mom and dad were witches your character only gets one power so choose carefully. If you need a list of powers that we might allow please go here.

In 1590 Scotland an unknown amount of witches were killed off in the North Berwick Witch Trials. It started when a group first discovered their abilities and caused half of their villiage to loose their minds from hearing voices and feeling as if they had been controlled by the "Devil".

If your character is going to be even loosely part of the Eclipse Coven they are going to have abilities listed here, only those in pink are allowed for eclipse coven.

Ranging from control over the flame to creating the flame out of nothing. Many powers that were related with the Solar Coven were Pyrokinesis, Temperature manipulation, Electrokinesis, and Helliokinesis. There weren't many powers to be found with the Solar coven sadly, and this is why so many were killed.
