An elderly, rural witch. She flies on broomsticks, cackles and has only one tooth. Yup, she's a witch. She does toads, if need be.
Atra's cookery is suspect, to say the least; not simply because that soup might be a witch's brew, but mostly because she is fond of putting soap in everything, magical or not.
After completing her apprenticeship, Atra settled in the forest as a rural witch.
She was married at least once and had 10 children whose current whereabouts are
unknown. It is thought that most of them made it to adulthood, and had offspring of
their own. When she joined Tamlin's gang in 973, some of them were still living with her
in her cottage in the woods.
Atra's connection with the real world is tenuous at times. She had a long period
where all her recipes, including the gang's dinners, included soap, but lately, she's
been focused and hardly ever munches soap at all. After Kel's
natural magical talents were revealed, Atra started tutoring the girl.
