Please. You're not the only witch who parties with sex demons. You don't have to go to them for that. You can come to me.
— Dorcas to Nick[src]


Dorcas Night was a recurring character on Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. She was portrayed by Abigail Cowen.

Dorcas was a witch and a student at the Academy of Unseen Arts, as well as a member of the Weird Sisters. She is one of the witches and warlocks who were saved by the Spellmans after Faustus Blackwood tried to poison the entire coven. Shortly after a coven of pagans arrived in Greendale, Dorcas was turned into stone by Nagaina. After she was restored to flesh by Circe, she was murdered by Agatha, who had been driven crazy by the Great God Pan's gaze.

Early Life

Dorcas was an orphan who grew up in the Academy of Unseen Arts, along with Prudence and Agatha, who she had befriended at a young age. The three of them became the dynamic trio known as the Weird Sisters. After her Dark Baptism and initiation into the Church of Night, she became a student at the Academy of Unseen Arts and was put through the Harrowing. They later met Sabrina Spellman, who they bully because of her dual nature.

Throughout Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Physical Appearance

Dorcas has red hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. Like her sisters, she wears old fashioned clothes with lace collars and black tights. She also wears her hair in a milkmaid braid. Underneath her human appearance, Dorcas has a more ghoulish appearance, consisting of grayish green skin, glowing red eyes and black rimmed teeth.

Personality

Dorcas is an ambitious and impulsive witch. She is a devout member of the Church of Night, who along with her sisters Prudence and Agatha, torments Sabrina Spellman for her dual nature. Dorcas can be quite cruel, much like her sisters, but she is also more reluctant to do such horrendous acts as murder. Although initially appearing as a willing participant, Dorcas later revealed that she was pressured by Agatha into killing Tommy Kinkle by bringing down the Greendale mines. Agatha's only regret being that Harvey survived while Dorcas, in reality, didn’t want to do it.

Powers and Abilities

Dorcas and Agatha kill the Kinkle boys

Dorcas possessed the standard abilities of a witch, such as spell casting, longevity, and telekinesis. She, along with her sisters, once cursed Sabrina in hopes of preventing her from attending the Academy of Unseen Arts. They often referred to Sabrina as a "half-breed." Additionally, Dorcas shares abilities with her sisters, such as telepathy, mind control, and precognition. She and Agatha also once used a poppet to bury Harvey Kinkle and Tommy Kinkle in the mines.

Relationships

Weird Sisters

Weird Sisters

Dorcas, Prudence and Agatha shared a close bond, with Prudence acting as the leader of the trio. They grew up together as orphans in the Church of Night. The sisters look down on and bully Sabrina Spellman for her dual nature of being half-mortal. And should Dorcas and/or Agatha step out of line or act without first gaining Prudence's permission, she will have no qualms about punishing them, as seen when Dorcas and Agatha murdered Tommy Kinkle in the Greendale Mines with a remote killing spell.
