Raine: "Well, the next 24 hours are going to be rough. But everyone knows their part, and I'm confident we'll succeed. Because we are... the Covens Against the Throne."
Darius: "Wait, can we please not make this our battle cry?"
Raine: "AKA... the CATs!"
Darius: "Oh, Titan help us."

The Covens Against the Throne, abbreviated as the CATs, was a resistance group based in Latissa plotting to take down Emperor Belos and stop the Day of Unity. They seem to have formed from the Bards Against the Throne.


Unlike its predecessor organization, the CATs are not limited to one type of magic, with three of its members being Head Witches of other covens, two Emperor's Coven defectors, three BAT members, and the inhabitants of the Owl House. The CATs have a "battle cry", an impersonation of a cat hissing. Due to it being presumably "cringey", Darius despises it. As of "O Titan, Where Art Thou", the CATs lack any special uniform.


When the Bards Against the Throne were captured whilst on a mission, Darius was secretly "saving" Raine Whispers, in their own words. At some point after Raine's capture, they and Darius formed a new group with the original members along with Eberwolf.[1]

At a later point, Raine, Darius, and Eberwolf attempted to enter Emperor Belos' mind. However, this plan is thwarted by Hunter, who accidentally breaks a vial of potion and teleports himself, along with Luz Noceda, into the Emperor's mind instead, forcing the group to go to the Owl House and give Eda Clawthorne the necessary supplies to get Hunter and Luz out of the Emperor's mind.[2]

When Eda and Luz are captured after stealing back Francois, along with a box marked 'Eda's longest toenails' (really a disguise for stolen palistrom wood intended for Luz) back from Police Precinct 128, the CATs intercepted the prisoner transport carts with them in and managed to retrieve Lilith Clawthorne, Steve, King, and Hooty as well.[3]

The group then travels to the head, where their plan to stop the Day of Unity begins. Eda takes Raine's place as Bard Coven Head so she can corrupt the Draining Spell's magic with her curse. She also receives a Bard Coven sigil and a concealment stone to disguise herself as Raine.[4]



  • Darius harbors a comedic distaste for the organization's name, acronym, and cat theme.
  • In the Disney+ subtitles, the acronym is spelled "CATs". However, the acronym for the Bards Against the Throne is spelled "BATTs".
  • "CATs" may be a nod to the Broadway musical of the same name, Cats
