Majorie/Maia was the apprentice to the healing witch, who lived in the log cabin in the candy forest. Scorned by the royals, her teacher cast a curse, dooming all the descendents of the royal family. Fearing this, the king and queen decided to adopt! But since technically those kids are now "royals" they were cursed anyway, haha.
Majorie feels very guilty as she was unable to stop the witch from casting the curse. As the witch cackles maniacally in front of the large oven (old fashioned kind with fire), Majorie pushes her inside! The witch dies, and Majorie is stuck without a reversal spell. She swears off magic and decides to focus on healing.
