Wow, did I just say that?
The Ancestral Witches (alternatively known as the Ancestresses, Three Ancient Witches, Three Primeval Witches, or the Mother of all Witches) are a trio of ancient witches. They are the creatures of absolute evil. They completely destroyed Domino while attempting to acquire the Dragon's Flame.
They cursed the Sirenix power that Daphne had acquired, causing it to turn against her during the attack on Domino after she saved Bloom, turning her into a bodiless spirit. But thanks to Bloom in the "The End of Tritannus," the Sirenix curse broke. In the French novel adaptation of the Winx Club: The Secret of the Lost Kingdom, their names are stated to be Belladona, Lysslis, and Tharma, and their birthplace is said to be the realm of Obsidian. The witcheses are the creators of Valtor and the cause of all the trouble.
Valtor mentioned them as being the "Mothers of all Witches" in Season 3. It is unknown what is the exact meaning of this title since the Trix are the only witches known to have claimed descent from them, but it may mean that they are the first witches.
They are described as very old women with graying hair and masks around their glowing yellow eyes. They appear barefooted as well, wearing black or gray dresses and capes and bear resemblance to the Trix.
- Belladona - Being the ancestress of Icy she bares some similarities with her hair. Her gray hair is held up in five separate crown-like extensions, possibly denoting her status as the leader of the trio. She wears a long gray dress with a black cloak. In her astral projection in Season 3, it is grayish blue while her cape is dark blue. She also has a mask around her glowing yellow eyes.
- Tharma - Being the ancestress of Stormy she bears some similarities with her hair. She wears a long gray dress with a black cape. In her astral projection in Season 3, her dress appears maroon much like Stormy's witch form. Her hair is also frizzy, resembling a storm cloud much like Stormy's. She also has a mask around her glowing yellow eyes.
- Lysslis - Being the ancestress of Darcy she bears some similarities with her hair. She has flowing gray hair and also wears a long gray dress with a black cape. In her astral projection in Season 3, her dress and cape appear a faded purple color. She also sports a mask around her glowing yellow eyes.
The Ancestral Witches are beings of pure evil and are cruel and pitiless. They love tormenting their enemies and even their allies and use all of them alike as pawns for their own purposes.
