The Black Forest Witch is the name of KQ5 character known as Witch of the Dark Forest in other versions of the game.


She is the witch that rules over the Forbidden Forest ( and the Forbidden Grove within the forest) and other regions of the Dark Forest.

It is believed by some that the evil Black Forest Witch and the unforgiving Ice Queen are in cahoots using sinister powers to promote their shared wicked cause.[1] As such they were considered potential suspects for kidnapping Castle Daventry and Graham's family for their evil plans. Of course while witch herself is evil, and doesn't like intruders in her forest lands. Icebella turns out to be helpful though untrusting of Graham at first.

If she was still an 'ally' of the witch its really not clear what their plans actually were. Icebella either didn't know that Graham defeated the witch, or didn't care too much, after he saved her kingdom.
