A Natural Witch is born with a predisposition towards practicing magic. They do not summon power from a God or a Demon, and instead are capable of harnessing their own and nature's energy for power. They go by the law of Nature, so the goal of many Witches is to honor the design of nature and to maintain balance within the natural world. The balance of nature is intimately tied to one's spiritual relationship with the Earth, and the idea that all living things (e.g. animals, humans, plants, etc.) are considered sacred, as they are all different aspects of nature. Contemporary witches would also agree that using modern ceremonies, rituals and shamanic practices is the best way to attune themselves with the natural rhythms of the universe in their efforts to obtain guidance and knowledge from wiser known witches called "The Spirits." The relationship between Nature and Natural Witches is very important. While the majority of Witches seem to respect Nature with just as much commitment and reverence as religious factions do about their churches or mosques and they know that with every spell they do there must be a balance. If you take something, you must give something in return and vice versa.
Traditionally, Natural Witches are born with a primary Active Power, such as telekinesis, but their powers grow as they age. These powers can be used at will and do not require incantations or potions. Natural Witches are able to access their magic from an early age, but their powers can manifest from the womb and can even be tapped into by their mother. Often, their supernatural abilities are exhibited in early childhood, though it is not unusual for a person to grow into adulthood before her or his capabilities are realized. In addition to their active powers, Natural Witches can also cast spells and create potions to amplify their magic.Their supernatural powers are passed on to them through blood from their ancestors, and are bound to their emotions, thoughts, and souls. A witch's magic is a genetic component that may skip a generation, making them mortals before their magic resurfaces.
Deflection - This ability can be used to deflect all kind of supernatural powers that are used against the wielder using a blue energy-based shield that generates from the wielder's hand. However, this power must be consciously activated in order for it to work, which makes the Witch vulnerable when unaware of an impending attack.
Animal Communication - The Witch is able to understand and communicate with the animal kingdom, possibly gaining their assistance.
STORY SO FAR
He has lived at Crawford City most of his life. His grandparents, on his father's side had moved there before he was even born. His mother came from another city but she moved there to be with her husband after finding out they were pregnant with him. Growing up, he was close with his grandparents. As a kid he would talk to animals like stray cats. At first it was just considered kids talking to animals but it continued as he got a bit older. His grandmother was a natural witch. His parents didn't inherit the magic, so it had skipped a generation. So everytime his grandmother babysat him she would teach him about his powers and everything else included in the witch package. It wasn't until one of his grandma's lessons he wasn't paying much attention she had used a mild spell on him repeatedly, getting a bit more painful that he activated his secondary power delfection, blocking her last one. Of course she tried to help him harness it. It was a power thought he rarely used to this day.
When they retired his parents had decided to move to Willow Creek to make a vineyard outside of the town to make wine and sell in town and other nearby areas if it was successful. Fortunately they came from old money so even if they weren't successful, they could still afford to get by. Henry decided to stay in Crawford City where he was doing illegal street racing. He never told his parents about it, keeping up the appearance of a good boy. He knew his grandmother wouldn't have approved.
At first he enjoyed the racing and the thrill it gave him, but eventually he was starting to get tired of it. During his final year, he met with another younger driver, Kasen. At first he paid Kasen no mind but each race, they both fought for first place. So far it was a 50/50 ratio for win/lose against them. Henry sometimes joked he was going to win and take the lotus, of course he never did.
Eventually the parents retired again and Henry inherited the vineyard. He wanted to do this on his own but knew that was hard since he was alone. He hired someone local who knew what to do. With the work load reduced, he had a stable made with two horses. He spoke to them often, never using bits on them. On the rare occasion when he wanted to impress someone, he would take them riding and do it without saddle or bridle, keeping his powers a secret from the other person.
When it was wine season though he worked hard to get everything done. He was thinking of potentially trying to hire someone and in return have free board. He supplies some bottles of the wine to the local stores in Willow Creek that sell alcohol. It wasn't a rich business but it was enough to get by without digging into his trust fund that had been made up for future college that never happened.
