W.i.t.c.h. Animated Series The Complete Series 2 Seasons with 52 Episodes on 3 Blu-ray Discs
The Guardians must save Meridian from the evil sorcerer Phobos and Cedric who are searching for Phobos’ sister, the long lost princess of Meridian and true heir to the throne. They later find her and the Guardians then set about saving her from Phobos. When Meridian is freed from evil and true heir takes the throne, a new mysterious sorceress named Nerissa frees Phobos’ top henchmen and reforms them as the Knights of Vengeance. Once the Guardians learn more about the sorceress and her evil plan of reuniting former Guardians, they are able to defeat the Knights only to have more powerful Knights of Destruction, in addition to the former Guardians attack them.
The Guardians’ chief ally is Hay Lin’s paternal grandmother Yan Lin, the original, former Guardian of Air, and the one that taught the girls about their magical abilities and destiny as the second generation of Guardians of the Veil. They are also helped by Caleb, a heroic soldier from Meridian, leader of the rebellion against Phobos, and Blunk, a frog-like goblin creature (known as a Passling) who takes things from the human world to Meridian (and vice versa), humorously mistaking everyday objects for other things or items of value. Matt, Will’s boyfriend, accidentally learns about Meridian and when he sees the troubles there going on, he learns how to become a warrior to help them. They are also helped by the Oracle, leader of the Universe in Kandrakar, who was the one who chose the five girls.
Guardian Powers and Magic
Each of the five Guardian’s powers are derived and drastically strengthened via the mystic temple by Kandrakar, transmitted to the Heart via the Aurameres (the physical representations of the Guardians’ powers). The Aurameres grant the same exact elemental powers to each of their guardians; for instance, powers held by Irma would also have been possessed by Cassidy. The keeper of the Aurameres is Luba, a cat-like being.
When the Guardians transform, they change form, height and grow wings, which help them fly. Also, the Guardians can combine their powers together and create a beam of concentrated mystical energy from their hands as seen on the show’s premiere. Since the Veil was taken down, the Guardians have to cross worlds by “folding”, with the help of the Heart of Candracar. Queen Elyon and Blunk (via the Tooth of the Tonga) can fold as well.
In order to travel to another place in the same world, each Guardian can teletransport. Teletransporting is a difficult ability to learn and one can materialize into another solid object if not careful enough. If a Guardian teletransports while not connected to an Auramere or a Heart than they will drain their life force.
It has been shown that if a Guardian uses her elemental powers and is not connected to an Auramere, it will drain their life force, making them much weaker. This may be why Nerissa aged so much faster than the rest of C.H.Y.K.N. A Guardian can become a Quinto-Guardian, which has the powers over the five elements: Water, Fire, Earth, Air and Quintessence. A Quinto-Guardian can gain the power to create solid ice out of thin air as with liquid water. The only known Quinto-Guardians are Cornelia (temporarily via the merged Aurameres) and Nerissa (by using her Seal). The Guardians can also become one with their dragon (or the powerful nymph Xin Jing, in the case of the Guardian of Quintessence and Keeper of the mystical Heart of Kandrakar, Will) and literally become their element while increasing all of their elemental abilities to their zenith of strength. But this is risky and rather dangerous because it costs them their humanity and they could be easily controlled and enthralled.
Astral Drops and Altermeres
Using the Heart of Candracar’s mystical power, a Guardian can create an Astral Drop, a duplicate of herself, when the words “Spord Lartsa” (Astral Drops spelled backwards) are said. The Astral Drops are doppelgangers, summoned when the Guardians have to go on a mission and need doubles so their absence is not felt. Although a Drop is a perfect physical copy of a person, they possess none of their memories, and have no personality of their own. All the Astral Drops make their debut in “Ambush at Torus Filney”. Cornelia makes another Astral Drop in “The Mogriffs”, as does Will in “H is for Hunted”.
An Altermere is an Astral Drop brought to life through the power of Quintessence. Unlike Astral Drops, they do not fade away when “Astral Drop” is said; they are actual living beings with feelings, emotions and memories. The concept of Altermeres is introduced in “H is for Hunted” when Will creates an Astral Drop to do her chores (laundry). Nerissa soon creates trouble by making it an Altermere. In “R is for Relentless”, Nerissa tries to corrupt Yan Lin to her side, but can not. So she traps Yan Lin in the Seal of Nerissa and creates an Altermere double who does not realize she is not the real Yan Lin until Nerissa tells her. In “Z is for Zenith”, Yan Lin introduces her long-lost sister she found in China to Joan and Chen Lin: Mira.
