Where do witches come from

Witchcraft and all the elements of witchery date to the beginning of humankind. Witches came to life and earth with the fall of Lucifer. While Lucifer fell to the pit, the thirteen who failed God by fawning over Morning Star, God’s favorite, were left on the surface to be separated from both God and him for all eternity.

With their fall they would no longer be of god and joined humanity in the fight for survival. However, unlike humans God did not leave them without capacity, they would live extended lives and have access to power the rest of us would never know.

But inside their makeup and even with the power they could gain, it would never outweigh an eternity lived in youth and in the presence of God only to have it replaced by the knowledge of their imminent demise.

They would live longer than mere earthlings but were haunted by deaths eminence and having to live the decay of life’s decline. Even in death they would not be returned to God.

The knowledge would be carried generationally in their seed throughout their history, but they would have no history as their birth would occur only as required to maintain the thirteen.

And they would not be brought to life through an act of magic or an act of God, but by natural child birth at different times and scattered as if by the whim of time. Through time and separation the disconnect between the witches would grow dissolving any sense unity.

Despite everything, they maintained an innate understanding of their future and how to gain power. The access to power came through the pain of getting there. Pain would always be the cost of power gained from a trip to the realm, the source of all power.

They would also know the pain of impatience as more than one would be called for each vacancy and all would die in their efforts, all but one. It took time to get there, decades, as if that in itself were a punishment, though the one who made it would have power beyond our imagination for hundreds of years.

Kimberley Clarke knew it all and she wouldn’t change it for any other world. She had been to the realm, paid the price of admission and she was good with it.  She particularly loved dispensing power, but didn’t they all.
