* {{Expy}}: Interestingly, the three witches can be seen as being inspired by their portrayals in Wicked -- but in different roles. Theodora is Nessarose (the Wicked Witch of the East, [[spoiler:as both turn evil and crazy due to broken hearts as well as being young and naive]]), Glinda is Elphaba [[spoiler:(a good witch who is thought of as wicked, and can see through the wizard's facade)]], and Evanora is like Wicked's Glinda [[spoiler:(advisers to the heads of Oz who are prepared to compromise morals for their own benefits and power).]]

* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Glinda is pure as the driven snow. [[spoiler:Subverted with Theodora. Often incorruptible pureness is associated with innocence and naivite. But Theodora's innocence and naivete are what make her corruptible. Glinda is pure, but not naive, and that is what makes her effective.]]
