Woodward (ウッドワード Uddowādo ) was one of the Nine Olde Witches who founded Luna Nova Academy as well as the mentor of Shiny Chariot. Her spirit resides in the Blue Moon Abyss to which only one can enter in the nights of blue moon.
In its true form, Woodward's spirit is a beautiful woman with white skin and a very long greenish-gray hair. She wears a green dress with plants with long sleeves and a wide skirt next to a tiara composed of leaves and flowers. It has two grills horns on the head and a symbol that runs its front.
In her appearance before Akko, she takes the form of a huge creature composed of branches with a feminine face similar to her true face.
Woodward is known for her great wisdom. It is rumored that she knows all things of the past, present, and future. In reality she is not omniscient and there are questions she does not have answers for, but they cannot be answered by anyone. In her first appearance to Akko, Woodward appears to be an evil being trying to convince Akko into giving up her ambitions and past. In actuality she was testing Akko, and proves to be a kind person.
She makes her first appearance in the episode revealing that she was Ursula's mentor and responsible for the test she put Akko in.
She makes a brief appearance inside the mirror that magically transformed Akko's appearance to that of Diana's.
Woodward is the mentor of Ursula, whom she knows as Chariot. She taught her that people don't get what they want but what they had put effort through their experiences, a teaching that Ursula would later pass to Akko. Woodward also taught Ursula the second Word of Arcturus, Phaidoari Afairynghor. Before disappearing again, she entrusted Ursula to make sure that Akko will fully wake up the rest of the Seven Words of Arcturus in order to break the seal of the Grand Triskellion.
