The Witches of Morva, known as Orddu, Orwen, and Orgoch, are minor players in the villains tournaments and are secondary antagonists in the Disney film The Black Cauldron. In the original book series by Lloyd Alexander, however, the witches have affiliation with neither good nor evil. Generally, the witches serve as underlings to higher powers, often serving under Maleficent or Hades.

The Witches of Morva guard the cursed sword, Drynwyn, in their swamps. Ruber, convinced by Maleficent to find the blade, arrives with two soldiers to recapture the blade. The witches are more than prepared, enchanting the swamps to kill his two henchmen. Orddu even manages to separate the sword welded to Ruber's arm. Ruber flees the battle rather than risk his life further. It is revealed in the epilogue, however, that the Witches had been tasked by Maleficent to kill Ruber when he arrived.
A Disapproving Audience
The witches find their power threatened when Jafar becomes Maleficent's new servant. The three laugh when Jafar is tasked to revive Diablo from the dead, but soon find themselves in awe after the former vizier succeeds. Jafar later eliminates Ruber, to the witches' everlasting shame. All the same, they rejoice along with Maleficent and the other allies.
The Battle of the Forbidden Mountains
The three eventually return to the fray in the Battle of the Forbidden Mountains, facing off against the forces of Skeletor. Orwen and Orgoch work to incapacitate Beast Man, one of Skeletor's generals, knocking the warrior off his perch and into the thicket. Orwen later increases the size and strength of Abis Mal, though he is ultimatey defeated. The three rejoice when Maleficent, aided by Hades, triumphs.
