Meanwhile, for Belladonna, it's LoveAtFirstSight when she sees Arriman. She's determined to win at all costs, but there's a minor setback: she's not a dark witch at all. In fact, she's a white witch, who can only perform good magic. But luck seems on her side when she meets an orphan boy named Terrance Mugg, whose pet worm, Rover, appears to be Belladonna's familiar, capable of giving her dark magic. With Terrance and Rover on her side, Belladonna is certain to win. But will she come out on top, when one of the group resorts to underhanded methods to win?

* MamaBear: The thing that pushes Belladonna to do the first remotely black thing in her life is watching Matron (who [[KickTheDog had tried to squish Rover, earlier]]) yell at Terrance and try to drag him away. It angers Belladonna so much that she halts Matron by turning her partially into a tree.

* EvilSorcerer: Parodied. Arriman is a very dark, very evil sorcerer, but his evil acts are more of a PokeThePoodle. It's a children's book, so he obviously can't be ''too'' evil. Played a bit straighter with one of the witches, who is more powerful than Arriman himself, and wears a necklace made out of the teeth of her deceased husbands. (Of one, they never found a body, but a bald werewolf with milky blue eyes appeared after he went missing ...)
