"The hag is a child-eating creature of human appearance, though likely to have more warts than the average witch."
The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection[src]

A hag is a savage being that looks like an ugly, old witch but has more warts.[4] They possess rudimentary magic, similar to that of a troll.[5] Little is known of them, though it is thought that they are what Muggles think are witches and are therefore popular in Muggle literature.

History

Ministry classification

The Ministry of Magic classifies hags as beings, a fact that causes centaurs and merpeople to desire the classification of beast.[3]
