Principal Torres (The Principal) is the true main antagonist in Season 1 of Every Witch Way. She is a former Chosen One and wanted to steal the Emma's powers at The Eclipse. She is the American counterpart of Madam Director.

The Principal, whose name has only been revealed to be Mrs. Torres, is an evil witch that wants to steal Emma's powers. The Witches' Council sent her into the human world as a punishment and she wants revenge. It is also seen that she is a former Chosen One herself. She wants to steal Emma's powers so that she may become the one and only Chosen One. She is also the adopted mother of Coach Julio. We don't know for sure if she was sent to limbo in the episode The Chosen One, after Maddie and Emma teamed up and defeated her, but we do know, that when she returned for the series finale, A Girl's Sacrifice, she was sent to limbo (possibly again).
