Significant Others
Sophie Ann Glaser was the wife of Patrick Glaser and the mother of Melissa Glaser. She perished in the Boatyard Fire sixteen years ago and was killed by a group of Witch Hunters.

Sophie Ann was a member of the Glaser Family.

Early Life

During her teens (or early twenties), Sophie Ann married Patrick Glaser and had one daughter. She was also involved in a circle of witches that included members from the Armstrong Family, Blake Family, Balcoin/Blackwell Family, Chamberlain Family, Conant Family, and Meade Family.

In Curse, John Blackwell mentions that she was a kind witch and they were very close. She taught him about the different medicinal herbs that grew in the forest in Chance Harbor. She was clearly an expert herbologist. John also relays to Melissa, that she loved her very much.

On the night of the Boatyard Fire, Sophie Ann went to the boat to discuss a truce between the circle and a group of Witch Hunters. Richard Armstrong mentions that she is already in the meeting room, along with Thomas Chamberlain. When Sara Armstrong enters the meeting room immediately after the death of her husband, she sees numerous bodies, indicating that both Sophie Ann and Thomas had likely died before Richard was attacked.

Because her husband survived but was not seen with Ethan Conant or mentioned to be on the boat deck with Dawn Chamberlain and Charles Meade, it is likely that he was one of only two circle members not on the boat that night.

Physical appearance

As there were several dead witches shown in Witness, but Sophie Ann was only mentioned by name, her appearance is unknown at this point.

Personality and traits

"You know, a coffee grinder would be a lot faster."
"Very creative... like your mother."
— John Blackwell comparing Melissa to her mother, Sophie Ann, while making a potion together.

Sophie Ann Glaser was a very intelligent, exceptionally kind-hearted and talented witch as described by seemingly close friend, John Blackwell. Sophie Ann was also described as diligent, having a knack for potions and plants, all traits which she passed down to her daughter, Melissa. She was also brave, as she was one of the brave members of her circle that went to the Boatyard (arriving with Thomas Chamberlain) and tried to make peace with the Witch Hunters by calling a truce with them. Blackwell also claimed that she loved her daughter very much and that Melissa meant the world to her.
