The Seal of Nerissa is Nerissa's very own sceptre and a magical object in the TV series.


It was created when Kadma stole the Heart of Meridian and merged it with the Heart of Zamballa after Will refused to absorb the Heart of Meridian. However, as the Heart of Meridian was stolen rather than given away, the Heart returned to Nerissa, who called the combined Heart, the Seal of Nerissa.[1] Nerissa tried to add Lilian Hale's Heart of Earth to her Seal but fails.[2] Will discovered that they couldn't take the Seal because of the Heart of Meridian was given to Nerissa freely, so she freed Phobos since he can take it and bend the rule.[3]

Nerissa then absorbed the previous Guardians into the Seal after they snapped out of her control. This allowed the Seal to have all the Guardians' powers.[3] Phobos managed to gain the Seal from Nerissa,[4] and renamed it the Sceptre of Phobos.[5] After retaking Meridian, Phobos set his sights on Kandrakar, and was on the verge of taking it when he was betrayed by Lord Cedric, who swallowed him whole, thus gaining his powers for his own.[6] After Cedric's defeat, Phobos was brought back up and the Seal was also broken, separating into a tear-drop jewel and the Heart of Zamballa. C.H.Y.K.N. and Elyon managed to escape, however, Nerissa couldn't since she didn't put herself in harmony with the others.[7]

Powers and abilities

It has been shown with the power of the Heart of Meridian, the Heart of Zamballa, and the Guardians' Powers, in which that its holder has the powers of:

  • Glamour
  • Teleportation
  • Opening folds.
  • All the powers of the Guardian of quintessence
  • All the powers of the Guardian of water
  • All the powers of the Guardian of fire
  • All the powers of the Guardian of earth
  • All the powers of the Guardian of air
  • Showing who has a Heart of a world (Nerissa did this when she wanted to know who was the Heart of Aridia).
  • Absorb people into the Seal.
  • Creating shields (protects the holder from attacks).
  • Increasing the natural powers of its holder.
  • Warping reality.
  • Alert its holder when its spells are broken by others.
  • All of the powers of the Hearts of Meridian and Zamballa.


When trying to figure out a way to wrestle control of the hearts from Nerissa, Will successfully figured out that the Seal of Nerissa is in fact the Heart of Meridian with "Zamballan highlights" and as such, since the heart of Meridian was freely given and rejected by Elyon to Nerissa (Trill) and the Heart Of Zamballa purposefully merged with the Heart of Meridian by Kadma, the Seal could never be stolen without Nerissa's permission due to the fact that both hearts were both technically willingly given to her freely by both owners. The only loop hole to this was the built in feature of the Heart of Meridian that clearly states that the only way the Heart of Meridian could be reclaimed without the current owner's consent is if a legitimate living heir to the Meridian throne is the one who takes it by force: this led W.I.T.C.H. to ask for Phobos' help, since in Elyon's absence, he was the only one who could claim the Heart.[3]
