–Great Witch, Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea
Daimajo (大魔女; also known as the Great Witch in Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea) is the head of the witches and a minor character in Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea. She is the one who oversees the Witch World.
Daimajo has raceless white skin, and jet-black eyes with dark rims. Like other witches, she wears a large witch hat and cloak. Her cloak is a dark brown with a red interior, fastened with a button, and her hat is wide brimmed with a red interior, similar to her cloak. Her hair is jet black with her long bangs that reach down to her nose, the length of her hair reacting down to her hips. She is often portrayed with a large three eyed crow sitting on a swirled wood staff.
She is cold and stubborn, and quite wise.
Evident by her name, she appears to be quite powerful. possessing a respectable title and status. As overseer of the Witch World, she appears to have power over the witches residing there, many of whom are also similarly powerful.
- Wadanohara and the Great Blue Sea - Daimajo appears as a supporting character, a wise witch that Wadanohara visits in an attempt to cure her amnesia.
Chlomaki is one of Daimajo's fellow witches.
Wadanohara is Daimajo's acquaintance and fellow witch, introduced to each other by Chlomaki.
Syokamori seems to be Daimajo's assistant.
Shiroma is one of Daimajo's fellow witches.
Tuchikure is one of Daimajo's fellow witches.
- Her name, in Japanese, means "Big Witch".
- Sometime in 2017, Daimajo's name has been omitted from the Character page and has been reverted to 'Great Witch', the reasons behind this change remains unknown.
- Daimajo's familiar is based of the mythical creature, the three-legged crow, otherwise known as Samjok-o in Korea or Yatagarasu in Japan.
- In Korea the Samjok-o was considered a symbol of the sun. The ancient Goguryo people thought that a three-legged crow lived in the sun while a turtle lived in the moon. Samjok-o was a highly regarded symbol of power, thought superior to both the dragon and the Korean bonghwang. This could emphasize Daimajo's role as the Great Witch (a witch superior to all witches).
- In Japanese mythology, this flying creature is a raven or a jungle crow called Yatagarasu (八咫烏, "eight-span crow") and the appearance of the great bird is construed as evidence of the will of Heaven or divine intervention in human affairs. The crow is a mark of rebirth and rejuvenation; the animal that has historically cleaned up after great battles symbolized the renaissance after such tragedy. This could likely be a reference to how Daimajo helps with handling the curse on Wadanohara's memory that had happened during conflict.
