The Witch or Queen of the castle in which Ico and Yorda are imprisoned rules with shadowy figures acting as her minions. She is the mother of Yorda and caged her daughter in order to later use Yorda’s body to prolong her own life. The Witches skin has a porcelain white color while her body has an ethereal looking cloak and a shadowy blue hue giving her a wraith-like appearance. The Witch can speak Ico’s language unlike Yorda and has a metallic resonance to her voice.
During the final confrontation she uses force fields and magical torrents powerful enough to send the Queens Blade flying through the air and embedding itself in bare rock. Upon her death the castle collapses.
