Ashaf and Guideau take the episode off as a new case needing the Order of Magical Resonance needs someone who is a necromancy specialist.


Enter Phanora and her right hand and servant, Johan, who helps a local cop with an unregistered insurgence of the undead.


This leads them to discover the person behind creating over 40 undead redheads, who he has already used to begin his grand plans.

Review Summary

Switching to a different member of the Order of Magical Resonance did bring a bit of a boost to “The Witch and the Beast.”

Review Summary

However, with Phanora and Johan not being the most interesting of characters, while we continue to be impressed by the lore, we aren’t by the characters.

Review Summary

Also, as it becomes clear each case has a formula, it makes too much about “The Witch and the Beast” come off as interchangeable from case to case.
