W.I.T.C.H. Wiki

Yua is a main villain in Arc 3: A Crisis on Both Worlds of the W.I.T.C.H. comics. She is the banshee Ari captured to hopefully cure his son's "illness".


Yua, like all banshee, is very beautiful. She has wavy greenish yellow hair that falls well past her waist. Because she naturally lives in swamps her hair is often damp, making it appear straighter and even longer. She is pale and slim, with a few large, green spots on her forehead. Aside from this she has a few other non-human like physical qualities. For instance, her ears are pointed and she possesses abnormally sharp upper and lower canine teeth which can be intimidating when she is angry. She is always seen wearing a long, pale yellow dress that is torn around the bottom.


When Ari captured her, she promised to grant him three wishes if he were to release her. However, Ari's final wish was for her to fulfill his future wishes, and thus she was forced remained in his servitude.[1]

She was kept chained up in Ari's basement and is only called upon when he needs her magic to assist him. Her hatred for Ari grew more and more each day, and she enjoyed frightening her custodians by magnifying the sound of the water drops that fall around her.[2]

At one point, Yua was freed by the combined powers of the girls together with Orube's warrior essence. She then took her revenge upon Ari by kidnapping his beloved son, Maqi. The girls helped Ari find his son in the banshee swamp. As the banshee are loyal to each other and have a sorority-like relationship, Yua appeared and stopped the girls' efforts to imprison the other banshee.[3]
