can….. can anyone explain to me what a Witch of Doom’s powers would be?
I’m….. too lazy to really look into it myself but I want to know…….
The Witch is a Class within SBurb that hasn’t been expanded upon a whole lot. While certain Classes have been given definitive explanations of their abilities and meanings, the Witch isn’t one of them, though many people have managed to parsze together a pretty good estimation based upon what we’ve seen Jade doing so far as the Witch of Space, and the panel in which we saw Feferi use her Witch of Life powers. Going on this, the most popular idea seems to be that the Witch class is SBurb’s closest equivalent to the traditional “magic-user” class. They use their Aspects in creative and often illogical ways, like when Jade simply shrank the kid’s Planets using nothing but her fingers and an altered sense of viewpoint.
Doom is also a mystery to the community at large, being that we haven’t really seen it expanded upon much as an Aspect within comic canon. But Mituna and Sollux have both given us a glimpse into it, and it’s very name allows us to give it a loose definition as loss, hopelessness, almost a “death” aspect, to counter-act the Life Aspect. So going on this, and combining it with what we can guess of the Witch Class, a Witch of Doom would be able to creatively and almost “magically” put Doom itself towards their will. They could for instance straight up cause the Doom of their enemies, or perhaps use their powers to swap out their opponent with a version of themselves from a doomed timeline. As with all Godtiers, it’s a very powerful combination, and able to do a lot if put into the hands of someone creative enough.
