You mention that as if it was a bad thing but for a decent witch unleashing violence is part of the whole job specification. Chief Witches are meant to cause trouble.
Did you encourage Eileen to defect given she is your biggest rival and has bested you in magical confrontations several times?
No - and I'd defy Eileen on being the better magical being. My range of spells is more extensive - and I'm prepared to use them.
Is there anything you would have done differently knowing what you do now?
Yes. I'd have made sure Eileen couldn't come back to the Kingdom to help fight against me. I should've destroyed the link way with Earth and Eileen then could've stayed in a self imposed but happy lifestyle. She'd have been better off there. I'd have been better off here.
Do you regret your alliance with Brankaresh?
Yes. I should've known better than to trust that slimy, treacherous toad. But at the time it did seem to be the best way of achieving my objectives. Notice his powers have gone back to their usual weaker state. Mine, by contrast, have recovered almost immediately. It's also good to get back to my usual intimidation and threats. The Queen needs reminding daily that she should not take her position, rank, job for granted.
