The Owl House Wiki

My only mistake was letting you two live all those years ago.
—Terra Snapdragon, "King's Tide"

Terra Snapdragon is an antagonistic character of The Owl House. She is one of the nine coven heads, having served as the Head Witch of the Plant coven, prior to the dismantling of the Coven system.



Terra Snapdragon is an elderly witch with wrinkled, ivory skin, and long, green hair that resembles plant matter or vines. She also has pale, violet eyes and wears dark green lipstick. She has the plant coven sigil on her wrist.

In her youth, Terra had a smooth complexion and shorter green hair that was more vibrant and two-toned in color.


Terra wears a purple dress that is banded by yellow-green plant vines. She wears two, green thorny bracelets on her wrists and dons a red-and-yellow lily crown on her head. She also wears what appear to be boots resembling or made of vines.

In "Hunting Palismen", she wore a white cape with the Plant Coven sigil on the neck over her current outfit.

In Terra's youth, her dress was magenta and was not banded at the top with a plant vine. She also wore pale green stockings and high heels that appeared to be made from vines.


Outwardly, Terra is calm and jovial and has a grandmotherly sort of charm. Still, on the inside, she is merciless and enjoys toying with her prey, revealing a sadistic and manipulative personality. She is also entirely loyal to Emperor Belos and enjoys criticizing others. However, after the Draining Spell takes hold of her, she is horrified to realize that her loyalty to Belos has been misplaced, bringing about her demise and the mass genocide of the witch race the entire time.

When she was younger, she was more outwardly ruthless and critical. However, she still had her false friendliness and maternal charm, even proclaiming that she would have made a good mother despite her excessive cruelty.

She also makes various references to plants and gardening when she talks.

After Belos was destroyed and the Collector turned everyone back to normal, she showed ambition to take the throne herself only to be immediately dissuaded by threats from Darius and Eberwolf.


Early life[]

Them's the Breaks, Kid - 868

Terra overseeing IFWOT.

Terra Snapdragon is one of the longer-served Coven Heads, with an ongoing career that spans at least three decades. While Eda Clawthorne was still a teenager, Terra served as head proctor of IFWOT before changing the name to "HECK." She was unimpressed with the program and opted to add one final challenge, a game of Covens vs Wilds. Though she broke multiple regulations instating this challenge, she did not care. Once Raine and Eda were the only two players left, Terra allowed them to duel each other, but they turned their attack towards the Head Witch. Unexpectedly, Terra was amused by their behavior and saw great potential in both of them. Though she gave out no ribbons to the students, she also promised to put in a good word for both Eda and Vice Principal Bump, saving the future Owl Lady from expulsion.[1]

Emperor's plans[]

Hunting Palismen - Coven Heads

Terra with the rest of the Head Witches at a meeting to discuss the Day of Unity.

As the Head Witch of the Plant Coven, Terra Snapdragon is an integral part of Emperor Belos' plans for the Day of Unity and is tasked with recruiting new witches to her coven.[2] She, along with peers, was present when Raine was inducted as the new Bard Coven head.[3]

Follies at the Coven Day Parade - 444

Terra giving Raine their "medicine".

Shortly after Raine was captured by Kikimora, Terra was tasked with "nursing them back to health" with a brainwashing tea and kept them under her care for the past month.[4] She is unaware of the fact that Raine can change the chemistry of liquids by using their whistling, thus preventing them from being brainwashed by the tea,[1] though she still suspects from Raine's behavior that they aren't quite under her control. She privately reported her suspicions to Belos.[5]

The Day of Unity[]

King's Tide (1262)

Terra realizing too late that the Day of Unity was a lie.

During the Day of Unity, Terra and most of the other Coven Heads expose the CATs' plan to corrupt the Draining Spell by uncovering Eda, who was disguised as Raine. They manage to subdue the CAT members and place Raine in the circle for the Draining Spell. However, when the Draining Spell's true effect takes hold, Terra is the first to feel its effects and realizes that her magic is being drained. Terrified, she asks Raine if the whole thing was supposed to bring paradise to all of them, causing Raine to shake their head in denial. Now realizing that Belos was manipulating her the entire time, Terra collapses onto the ground, her magic and life draining out of her until the spell is stopped by the Collector.[5]

"Playing" with the Collector[]

For the Future - 1428

Terra being turned into a puppet after angering the Collector.

In the months following the Day of Unity, Terra was spared from being turned into a puppet - as was the fate of the other eight Coven Heads - if she agreed to play with the Collector. However, one day as she is rampaging through Bonesborough pretending to be Eda in her owl beast form, Terra angers the Collector after he criticizes her impression of the Owl Lady. Terra berates the Collector by reminding him of their deal, degrading King in the process before putting on a mocking performance of Eda. Realizing her mistake too late, Terra pleads to the Collector to spare her, but he ignores her pleas and turns her into a puppet.


Watching and Dreaming - 4706

Terra, Adrian, and Vitimir being warned not to take the throne.

After Belos' death, Terra was restored to normal along with the other puppets. Later, she, Adrian Graye Vernworth, and Vitimir try to take the throne for themselves, before quickly being stopped by Darius and Eberwolf, causing them to leave.

Powers and abilities[]

  • Magic: As a witch, Terra can use magic. Like all witches, her connection to magic comes from a sac of magic bile attached to her heart. Having earned the rank of coven leader, she is undoubtedly very powerful. About thirty years ago, she only needed a small spell circle to defend herself from an attack by Eda and Raine, who combined their magic and used a larger circle.
    • Plant magic: As the leader of the Plant Coven, Terra can cast spells that allow her to control and grow plant life en masse.
    • Mind control: She can summon a special plant and use its leaves to create a tea that either brainwashes others or at least maintains an existing brainwashed state. Unbeknownst to her, Raine used bard magic (changing the chemistry of the tea via whistling) to secretly neutralize the tea to maintain their cover as a spy.
    • Plant travel: Terra can use vines or other plant matter to travel underground or through water.


Behind the scenes[]

Name and basis[]

The name "Terra" is the Latin word for "earth", a word that is present in most romantic languages, such as Italian and Portuguese. The term is derived from the name of the primordial goddess of the Earth in Roman mythology. A snapdragon is a genus of plants known as Antirrhinum.


Terra is voiced by Debra Wilson. Wilson was announced as a guest star in the second season on May 17, 2021.[6]


Terra can be seen on the Plant Coven banner in "The First Day" before making her first on-screen appearance in "Hunting Palismen", albeit unnamed at the time. She was properly introduced and named in "Follies at the Coven Day Parade".
