* The witches of ''HisDarkMaterials'' are members of an [[OneGenderRace all female]] WitchSpecies. They sometimes marry mortal men. By the time the story reaches them, all of the major witch characters have been widowed many, many times. While a witch is technically immortal, the grief of mourning over all those husbands will eventually kill her.
