Who is the White Witch of Narnia?

Jadis the White Witch

Jadis is an ancient being who has turned Narnia into a frigid and cold place – always winter, but never Christmas.

She is actually the sole survivor from another world named Charn, where she destroyed all life by uttering a magic spell known as the Deplorable Word. She found her way out of this world and into Narnia at the time of its creation in the prequel book, The Magician’s Nephew, and has been a danger ever since.

Jadis is powerful, manipulative, and absolutely ruthless. Alongside her servants the Dwarf, and Fenris Ulf, the White Witch is determined to continue Narnia’s Long Winter forever…Will they succeed?
