Professor Aldous Witch, now known as Witch Doctor, is a former civilian instructor for Hero Factory.
Aldous Witch was an instructor at Hero Factory, educating rookie Heroes in the subjects of astronomy and architectural geology. However, he secretly coveted the Hero Cores that all Heroes wear, though he was unable to wear one himself.
Desiring to possess a Quaza Core, Witch tried to install one into his own body in a Quaza Chamber. However, his attempt was discovered and was forcibly stopped by one of his former students, Preston Stormer. As a result of his position within Hero Factory, he was exiled rather than being imprisoned.
In order to obtain Quaza, the mineral that makes up Hero Cores, Witch traveled to the protected planet Quatros, using his knowledge as Hero Factory staff to deactivate the force field guarding it. However, his ship crash-landed on the planet. Witch began illegally mining the material, and during his excavation efforts, he discovered a temple housing a mysterious skull. By adding a small amount of Quaza to the skull, Witch created the Skull Staff, which amplified the power of the Quaza used, and transformed Witch into Witch Doctor. Using corrupted Quaza spikes, Witch Doctor enslaved the animals of the jungle, and had them assist in mining the Quaza. In order to acquire a new ship, capable of housing his new form and leaving the planet, Witch Doctor sent a distress signal to Hero Factory, claiming that he was being attacked by the beasts of the planet.
Daniel Rocka, a rookie Hero, arrived on the planet to assist Witch, but was instead attacked by Witch Doctor and his Fangz guards. The Alpha 1 Team later arrived to rescue Rocka and encountered Witch Doctor. Despite new armor suited to the planet, William Furno was unable to defeat the Witch Doctor, and the team was approached by several beasts of the forest, though Witch Doctor soon recalled them. With an available ship to help him leave the planet, Witch continued his mining efforts, eventually acquiring the last bits of Quaza from the planet's core.
When he discovered Dunkan Bulk, Rocka, and team leader Stormer shrunken in size, Witch captured Rocka and Bulk inside a small container. The remaining team members Furno, Jimi Stringer, and Julius Nex, also arrived, chased by the enslaved Scorpio. Witch used his staff to direct the Scorpio to attack the Heroes, but they were able to break off the corrupted Quaza spike embedded in the scorpion. Free of Witch's influence, Scorpio attacked the tyrant, giving the Heroes time to recover their allies. Witch directed his mining servant, the Raw-Jaw, to fight Scorpio, and sent a blimp containing all the Quaza flying into the air. Restored to size, Stormer engaged Witch in combat, though he was outclassed in power. Witch was soon challenged by Rocka, who had increased his power and size by outfitting himself with armor pieces found in the temple, and the two fought. Witch Doctor eventually gained the upper hand over Rocka, but before he could deliver a final blow, Stormer stole the Skull Staff from Witch and snapped it in two, removing Witch's power and defeating him. After the Heroes returned the Quaza to the core of Quatros they arrested Witch Doctor, and took him back on the ship to transport him to Hero Factory.
After the breakout at the Hero Factory, Witch Doctor escaped out into the universe.
Abilities and Traits
Aldous Witch was once a mild-mannered professor, with a secret desire to possess a Quaza Core like Heroes do. His covetous attitude led him to attempt to illegally mine the material. Upon being exposed to the amplified Quaza energy by a mysterious skull, Witch became Witch Doctor, increasing in size and strength, and was made much more powerful and faster than most Heroes. He was also a ruthless tyrant to the animals of Quatros, enslaving them all and forcing them to behave in ways they would normally not.
Witch Doctor carried the Skull Staff, a staff powered by Quaza that he found while illegally mining the mineral. The staff allowed him to control beasts of the jungle planet Quatros through corrupted Quaza spikes.
The staff also allowed him to use corrupted Quaza to increase his own power, and manipulate it as energy. When the staff was broken by Stormer, Witch was cut off from this energy, rendering him powerless.
Set 2283 Witch Doctor was released in mid-2011, containing 331 pieces including four dual-colored Quaza spikes. The Witch Doctor set carries a launcher that can fire a spherical ammunition piece when the sides of the launcher are squeezed.
