The young witch came to me again yesterday. She speaks in riddles, but sweetly. She says she will be kind for my kindness to her kind. The crops this year looked to fail, but now we think the crops are flourishing late. Perhaps it is only chance, but everywhere the crops are growing now are places the young witch walked yesterday. I can see her now, Freya of the long hair and the summer song, with the edge of her gown lost in the green grass. Surely God made her. The devil could not make anything so lovely.
Mary Wardwell reading an account written by Dorothea

Dorothea Putnam is a recurring character on on Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. She is portrayed by Anastasia Bandey.

Dorothea is the ancestor of Jesse and Theo Putnam. She appears as a ghost and offers her guidance to Theo.

Early Life

In 1692, Dorothea gave the Greendale Thirteen safe passage from Scotland to Greendale to escape prosecution. She transported them by boat, across the Atlantic to Greendale in which they thought would be a safe place. However, this was wrong and they were hunted once again. They were then hung on the hanging tree by witch hunters. But in spite of their kind abandoning them, they were not alone. It was Dorothea who didn't abandon them and cut them down from the tree in which they were hung upon. She later buried them on the land in which her farm stood.

Throughout Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Part 1

Throughout the end of the season, she helps and guides Susie with helpful information. However, Susie is the only person who can see and communicate with Dorothea due to the fact that Susie has limited mediumship. This started when Susie came in contact with one of Dorothea's belongings.

Physical Appearance


During her lifetime, Dorothea was a brave and prejudice-free woman, who helped witches and mortals cross the Atlantic, and was a true ally of the witches and a hero to the marrow, according to Prudence.
