The Owl House Wiki

Let this be a lesson to all of you. There's no place in society for you if you can't fit in.
—Warden Wrath to the prisoners in Conformatorium, "A Lying Witch and a Warden"

Warden Wrath is a recurring antagonist in The Owl House. As his name suggests, he was the former warden of the Conformatorium. His main goal was initially to capture Eda, whom he has gained a fondness for after trying to capture her.[1] He is the father of Braxas.[2]



Wrath is a humanoid biped demon with pale purple skin and a large, muscular build. Under his mask and hood, he hides a huge mouth of large sharp teeth (with his canines being more prominent), as well as tiny, yellowish-white eyes, which are difficult to see from under his hood.


Wrath wears a dark gray cowl with a small gold fasten over a beaked mask with yellow button-like lenses. He wears a white sleeveless tunic with brass buttons, a brown leather belt with a brass buckle, and black trousers tucked into dark purple shoes. On his uniform, one can also see a triangular brass badge, which emphasizes his position.


Wrath is cruel, domineering, and conformist. On his orders, city residents are imprisoned for "abnormal behavior", some of which is inherent in some residents because of their characteristics. He also has a bad temper, which he manifests on rebellious prisoners and in battle.

Despite this, he is not completely heartless, as he develops a crush on Eda for escaping his grasp multiple times. Additionally, he cares for his son Braxas greatly. Something of a coward if confronted by a stronger magic-user, he can easily be intimidated if threatened with force.


Capturing the Owl Lady[]

The Owl House S01E01 - A Lying Witch and a Warden 317

Wrath with King's "Crown of Power".

Warden Wrath is the city overseer of the Conformatorium, and a member of the Emperor's Coven. He was tasked in capturing the infamous Owl Lady, but she managed to elude him each time. Eda's continued escapes caused Wrath to develop a crush on her.[1] At some unknown point, Wrath was seen participating in Emperor Belos' basilisk project, likely gathering data.[3]

Wrath stole King's "Crown of Power" in hopes to lure Eda to the Conformatorium, and upon (non-fatally) decapitating Eda, he attempts to ask her out. However, Eda rejects his advances, and Luz promptly knocks him out by bashing his head with the Owl Staff. Enraged, the Warden then pursues Eda and gains the upper hand in the ensuing battle, but just as he is about to incarcerate her, Luz and various inmates step in and attack him. The combined efforts of the inmates and Luz are enough to send the Warden fleeing back into the Conformatorium.[1]

Draw me a map

Luz forces Wrath to draw a map.

After Eda gets captured by Lilith, he establishes that he and the Conformatorium serve under the command of Emperor Belos. He is seeking revenge on Luz and King, only to be defeated by them with ease. Luz then forces him to draw a map to Eda's location, and once he is released, Kikimora berates him.[4]

Demotion and the Bonesborough Brawl[]

Reaching Out - 1142

Warden Wrath's mutated form after drinking the altered blabber serum.

At some point, Wrath got demoted for stealing his co-worker's lunches.[5] He would then compete in the Bonesborough Brawl, wishing to defend his champion title. Eda attempted to extort him for information on Raine Whispers and the Day of Unity, to which he called security, so she'd back off. After several rounds, Wrath was meant to face "The Mighty Mittens" in one of the final matches, only for Alador Blight to intervene and encase him in abomination sludge. Edric then force-fed him an altered Blabber Serum which mutated him, making him powerful enough to bat away both Eda in harpy mode and one of Alador's Abomatons. It took the combined efforts of Alador and Amity restraining him so Eda and Luz could use ice spells to bury him in snow and turn him back to normal. Eda then went with directly questioning him, and Wrath informed her about the rumors surrounding the Day of Unity being bad for all magic-using kind.[5]

During the Day of Unity, Warden Wrath was finding a safe place to hide Braxas.[6] After the Collector stopped the Draining Spell, Warden Wrath was among the many who were turned into a puppet by the Collector's spies, and Braxas vowed to avenge his father.[7] After Belos is defeated, he is returned to his normal state.


Four years after the defeat of Belos, Wrath is seen as a cameo with his son, as the two watch Hunter carving a palisman for Braxas.



Braxas is Wrath's son and he's shown to love and care for his son. When Warden Wrath learned about the Draining Spell, he sent Braxas to a safe place to hide. After Belos was destroyed, he was reunited with him.

Powers and Abilities[]

  • Superhuman strength: Wrath displays incredible physical strength. He is able to lift and hold Luz off the ground, as well as operate the cell door levers of the Conformatorium one-handed, a task that requires both Luz and Eda to achieve.
  • Organic construct: Wrath can transform his hands and arms into weapons, such as hammers, sickles, or a mass of tentacles for restraining opponents.
  • Fire breath: In his fight against Eda, Wrath demonstrates the ability to breathe pure fire from his enlarged mouth.
  • Magic: In "Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Hooty's Door", it was revealed that Warden Wrath and his son Braxas are biped demons and that they also have bile sacs, just like witches.
