The Mirror Witch (MIRRORS) is a witch whose barrier is a stage in the mobile game Magia Record. Her barrier and the copies her Familiars create are the stage for the PvP feature of the mobile game.

According to the Mirrors Story that plays as players delve deeper into the barrier and the event Scattered Flowers Melancholy Chapter, the Mirror Witch was once a Magical Girl from Daito Ward named Mikoto Sena. Mikoto was friends with Hanna Sarasa and had the ability of suggestions, essentially hypnotizing others, including Witches and their Familiars, to do her bidding (although this ability had its own limitations). She later became a Witch and Hanna used the hypnosis ability she had copied from Mikoto to influence the Mirror Witch into staying in Kamihama and wreaking havoc on as many people as possible. Despite this, the Mirror Witch will not openly attack people unlike other Witches.

Its Familiars are capable of duplicating not only the physical appearance of a Magical Girl, but their abilities and memories as well. Some Familiars are copied so faithfully that even the copies are not always aware that they are not the original.

The Mirror Witch is capable of connecting its barrier with the barrier of its Familiars that have matured into more copies of their master Witch; effectively, a matured Familiar's barrier becomes an extension of a massive shared barrier spanning many different locations at the same time, and there can be multiple instances of the Mirror Witch within that barrier at once. This includes barriers of other Mirror Witches from other universes as seen in the Chocolatier in Mirror Country event. In Arc 2, the Promised Blood faction use this to their advantage: a copy of the Mirror Witch lives in Kamihama's abandoned prison, and Promised Blood can travel through its barrier into Kamihama without detection.

鏡の魔女 その性質は『隠遁』

その性質ゆえ、結界は幾重にも重なる階層から成る。 ひっそりと隠れていたいだけの臆病な魔女であるため、 人や魔法少女の殺害によって魔力を集めるようなことはせず、 結界内に入ってきた魔法少女たちの魔力を僅かに吸収することで、 自分の身を守る層を形成してゆく。

侵入者が増えれば増えるほど、結界の構造もまた、複雑に発展してゆく。

The Mirror Witch is defined by her reclusiveness. As such, her Labyrinth is made up of many overlapping levels. She's a cowardly Witch whose only desire is to hide from the world, so she does not gather magic by killing people or Magical Girls; rather, she simply absorbs a little bit of magic from Magical Girls who enter her Labyrinth, which she then uses to form more layers in her Labyrinth to protect herself. The more intruders there are, the more complex her Labyrinth becomes.

Minions of the witch of mirrors (IV). Their role is to solicit. A Familiar that waits outside the Manor of Mirrors handing out invitations. When it spots a Magical Girl, it throws a lethal invitation letter at her. That said, it genuinely wants to invite people to the Manor. Some suspect it just believes it is easier to carry the body than actually get a living Magical Girl to go inside.

Trivia

  • "Kirico" appears to be a modification of the Japanese word "kiriko" (切子), meaning "facet" or "face".
    • Satsuma kiriko is a Japanese craft of cut glass developed by the Satsuma clan during the Edo and Meiji periods of Japan.
  • According to her witch's kiss it's theorized her name could be simply "Mirrors".
  • The sign in her labyrinth reads "Welcome to Mirrors".
  • The humanoid figure that appears in one of the Witch's labyrinth backgrounds is a scrapped Familiar. It's concept art shown at the Shaft Art Exhibit reveals that its purpose was to explain how Mirrors worked and that it could speak. This idea was eventually scrapped and the Familiar was replaced with Mitama Yakumo providing the information instead.
