|~ Elizabeth detecting Luke's presence in the meeting.|
Elizabeth also named Elise is a witch who is one of the Grand High Witch's followers and is one of the main witches shown in the 1990 film The Witches, although she only has a minor role.
She was portrayed by Jenny Runacre.
Elizabeth is known to be a witch working as a maid in the Exclesior Hotel so it might be a reason why the witch meeting was held there. Like all witches, her main hobby is murdering children, due to the fact they smell like "dog’s droppings” to her. Just before the meeting, she tells Mr. Stringer that she will stay in the meeting just in case, as he didn't suspect that she's the witch. When she attends The Witches annual meeting at a hotel, she reveals what her true form looks like as she is bald and has scaly claws hidden by gloves. Elizabeth is the first witch who welcomes Bruno and introduces him to the other witches during the meeting. When the Grand High Witch demonstrates how her new formula 86 turns Bruno into a mouse, Elizabeth is shown laughing with delight. Before the ending of the meeting, she picks up some things laying on the stage and she detects Luke's presence and immediately notifies Grand High Witch about her discovery.
Elizabeth is one of the main witches to give chase after Luke and then she helps Grand High Witch to use the Forumla 86 on him. Elizabeth meets her downfall with the other witches. Ironically they consume Formula 86 after it was put in their soup by the boy and his grandmother (who had been turned into a mouse). After being transformed into a mouse, she was slaughtered by one of the hotel staff members, believing her to be a real mouse.
