Leticia Somnolens was a hag who lived in Medieval times. A spiteful creature, she was jealous of the daughter of the local King and tainted a spindle with a Draught of Living Death. She then tricked the young princess into pricking her finger on it, sending her into a deep sleep. Her plan was foiled, however, by a wizard who smeared his lips with Wiggenweld Potion, and then kissed the princess, curing her and bringing her out of the sleep.
Behind the scenes
- The story behind this Hag is obviously based on the tale of Sleeping Beauty, with Leticia being based on the character of the Wicked Fairy Godmother.
- Somnolens is a derivation of "somnolence", which means "sleepiness".
