Doppel This page is about the Lords of Shadow boss. For original enemy, see Malphas.

28-hud boss witch

The Crow Witch Malphas is a boss in the game Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, inspired by the enemy Malphas from the original series. Reimagined as female, here she is a witch who threw herself off the highest tower of her castle home after her lover was led to his death by a rival witch. She survived by forging a symbiotic relationship with the crows that came to feed on her broken body, and over time became a crow demon herself. She is surrounded by a flock of crows and battles Gabriel by tossing eggs that spawn half-bird half-human minions known as Witch Children.

Malphas sent her crows to spy on Baba Yaga, and created the Scarecrows to keep the witch in check. It is suggested that Baba Yaga was the rival witch who took her lover.
