She has a way with numbers and her magic is magenta lightning. She is very disciplined and knows all the rules by heart. She stays to help Emma. She is like a walking dictionary. She was there to help Emma, but when she was coming out of the seven she was exposed to the Fool Moon and turned her into her evil self. In "Daniel Who?" Her evil self finds out that Daniel is Emma's boyfriend. She spies on Lily and Emma and finds out that Daniel lost his memory so she gives Emma the spell that will restore his memory but intentionally wanted to make sure she lost her powers for Daniel.

Seasons 2-4 (Temporary Leave Due To Leading WITS Academy)
He is the only wizard of the Council as well as being the leader and his magic is yellow smoke. He follows tradition and seems to despise humans as much as witches despise Kanays. He was sent away to Limbo by Desdemona after figuring out her master plan. He is portrayed by Todd Allen Durkin.
She first appeared in Jax of Hearts with the rest of the council. While they were talking to Emma she was believed to leave the Council in Runaway Witch but was later revealed to be kidnapped by Desdemona. She was replaced by Lily, as with her gone there was a spot on the council. Ramona later tried to convince Desdemona to let her go but failed. Her magic is red smoke, but white during teleportation. She cares a lot about fashion and thinks Emma dresses horribly. She was kidnapped by Desdemona. When she finally escaped and tried to find the council entrance, she was caught by Desdemona and was sent away back to limbo. However, she was rescued by Maddie and escaped limbo. She is portrayed by Lisa Corraro.
In season 3 & 4, Ramona doesn't make an appearance due to the fact that Lily replaced her in The Witches Council.
Seasons 2-Present (Possibly Still A Guardian)
Lily is a powerless witch who took Ramona's spot on the council after she was believed to have left the council, but was really kidnapped. She gets framed by Desdemona, making Agamemnon believe that Lily kidnapped Ramona and that she wants to destroy the magic realm. She may not be on the council anymore because of Desdemona turning back to normal and Ramona is rescued from limbo so she may be Emma's guardian again. However, in the season 3 premiere, she still serves on the council. She is portrayed by Melissa Carcache.
