Hagatha the Witch is an orc shaman and the main antagonist of the The Witchwood expansion for Hearthstone. She is the one responsible for corrupting the forests around Gilneas, transforming the Blackwald into the Witchwood by awakening and twisting the wood and its inhabitants.[2][3][4][5] She notably serves as the ultimate boss encounter in the Monster Hunt single-player experience.

Not much is known about Hagatha's true nature. It's not clear if she is indeed the rumored source of the curse that has befallen the Blackwald, or merely one of its victims. She may have been the survivor of some great battle who dragged herself deep into the forest and fell prey to dark magic, a wicked manifestation of the forest's anger, or an unusually skilled shaman whose ambition and desire for vengeance have outstripped all good sense. Somewhere on a swamp bank in the depths of the forest, she waits. When she speaks, every malignant thing in the woods bends an ear to listen. When she breathes, coils of glowing mist drift between tangled branches, and restless spirits wake from timeless slumber. When she rages, gnarled trees with jagged grins uproot themselves, and whole hillsides rise to lumber into the night. When she dreams, the people of Gilneas have recurring nightmares of a great serpent that threatens to devour the moon. In her despair, the vile and bizarre Shudderwock stalks the land. While terrifying, Hagatha isn't a mindless force of nature, nor is she all-powerful. It's unknown why she hates Gilneas and its people, or if she even truly does — Gilneas may simply be an obstable to a larger goal. Whatever Hagatha's ultimate motive, the curse is already closing its claws around the city, and she will not stop until it is lost to the Witchwood.[1]
