    The Story

    The witches is a soap opera with the characters based on hungarian, cherokee, and other cultural witch legends. It is written as a daytime soap. Cherokee has no primary root or any root that could be used for "devil" or "evil." So demonic characters are avoided. Though some episodes include characters that are a mix of angels and animal spirit guides. They could morph back and forth from human to animal. And episodes include heros and villains from other legends that relate to nature, like those from the Nordic and Voodoo cultures.
