W.I.T.C.H. Wiki

Water is one of the elements controlled by one of the Guardians, specifically Irma and Cassidy.

The element

Water is one of the four classical nature elements along with fire, earth and air, and is bound to the others through quintessence. Because of water's abundance and it's fundamental purpose in life, the ability to manipulate it grants a Guardian of this element a great variety of ability and power.

Symbol of Water

The element of water is controlled by Irma Lair, one of the W.I.T.C.H. Guardians. This element allows the Guardian it has been bestowed to the ability to control, manipulate, and manifest water or anything liquid-based. This involves water itself, ice in any form, sweat, blood, steam, water pressure, and other variations. With this power, a Guardian can manipulate water-related weather such as blizzards and rainstorms. She can also control water in all three of its physical forms and even manipulate the liquids inside another human's body. Water is a mystical element, meaning that it can be formed out of thin air and controlled while in the presence of a Guardian.[citation needed]
