A witch is a person who has the power to effect change by magical means ("witchcraft"). Most of those encountered by Sam and Dean are practitioners of black magic - that is, spells used for self-gain or to harm others. It is stated that witches get their power from demons - presumably in exchange for their souls. It is notable that Sam, Dean, and Bobby often use the same spells and rituals, but would not consider themselves witches. Witches can be extremely long lived and very powerful. Only three of the witches encountered have been killed by Sam or Dean. Some witches have a companion known as a Familiar who can appear in either animal or human form.
