Magrat Garlick, a witch who lives in LANCRE CASTLE. The youngest member (comparatively speaking) of the coven that Granny Weatherwax swears she has not got. Mother to Princess Esmerelda Margaret, and daughter of Simplicity Garlick, now deceased.
None of Magrats relations was a witch, which is unusual because witchcraft tends to run in families, making Magrat an original. She was selected and trained by Goodie WHEMPER, a methodical and sympathetic witch with a rather greater regard for the written word than is common among the Lancre Witches.
In certain light, and from a carefully chosen angle, Magrat is not unattractive. Despite her tendency to squint when she’s thinking, and her pointy nose, red from blowing it too often. She is short, thin, decently plain, well scrubbed and has the watery expression of hopeless goodwill wedged between a body like a maypole and hair like a haystack.
