Character: The Witch
in Hansel and Gretel story, The Brothers Grimm fairy tales.
In the era of the Industrial Revolution, the residents of the town all worked in the factory, including Hansel and Gretel's parents. The smoke from the factory severely damaged the natural environment, while the witch represents the ancient dark magic world, she is the embodiment of the natural world.
