Strega Nona is a helpful, motherly lady who is always ready to lend a helping hand. She uses magic and spells to help the villagers with their problems. Sometimes mishaps happen (mostly because of Big Anthony), but that doesn’t deter her from giving out a helping hand.
Strega Nona keeps her outfit simple throughout the day. She wears an orange long-sleeve shirt underneath a green vest and pairs it with a long purple skirt, a white apron, and a white scarf above her hair.
