The Crucible


Hete (meaning Hate in Old English) is an antagonist in the novel The Warren Witches. He was a demon of hatred who foments hatred among humans, and has caused most conflicts around the world, including the Salem Witch Trials.


The demon has existed since the beginning of time, and has caused most conflicts throughout history. Unlike most demons, Hete's true form is a puff of black vapor. There is no known way to vanquish Hete, because he was born from hatred of mankind.

In the modern times, he was summoned by two inexperienced teenagers, Marissa Hargrave and Laurie as a prank on Natalie Kent. Since they substituted wolfsbane with powdered mushrooms for the summoning potion, the demon turned on Marissa instead, causing the girl to become the center of discord at school.

The sisters discovered what happened and tried to banish the demon, but he escaped and amplified his influence over the whole town. He led the female students at Marissa's school to the Halliwell Manor. The sisters then banished him with a spell, sending him back to whence he came.
