voicesThe Voices: Batsheva Moromond (WARNING: Contains spoilers for the Hayle Coven Novles)

Each week I’ll be sharing a bio for a different character. Have a request? Feel free to comment below and I’ll do my best to feature your favorite next



Age: 40
Hair: Dark Blonde
Eyes: Blue
First Appears: Family Magic
Series: The Hayle Coven Novels

Little is known of Batsheva Moromond’s origins, except to say she came from a small coven with scant power, the second daughter who never satisfied with her lot in life. It’s rumored she began searching for ways to increase her magic from a tender age, befriending more powerful witches every chance she had, though such gossip is unconfirmed. It wasn’t until Batsheva attended Coven Hall at Harvard, meeting Miriam Hayle, the heir to the powerful Hayle Coven, Batsheva’s goals solidified. Aligning herself with the Dumont sisters, Odette and Naudia, who promised her more influence and power than she could every need or want, Batsheva purposely wormed her way into Miriam’s good graces. Marrying Dominic Moromond simply because he was the only witch she knew she could trust with her plans, Batsheva became the Dumont sisters’ assassin, attacking and stripping small covens, keeping much of the power to herself, on the sisters’ orders. After murdering Odette’s daughter and husband, instead of killing the two Tinder children as instructed, Batsheva instead discarded the powerless Mia and took little Quaid in as her own son, though only because she sensed the magic inside him was much more vast than any she had been able to acquire previously. Once she convinced Miriam to betroth her stolen son to the next Hayle heir, Batsheva was certain she’d finally set the stage for her own advancement and sat back to wait for her chance to usurp Miriam’s power.
