We are vulnerable. You have brought our kind to the center of the stage when we are hated most.
— Corwin to Mary Sibley

Alexander Corwin was a member of the Council of Salem, as well as a witch infiltrated on behalf of Mary Sibley.

Early Life

Although young, Corwin is part of the selectmen in Salem. Is given to understand that this has been possible thanks to the intercession of Mary Sibley.

Personality

Shy and hesitant, leans always the opinion of others as when he has come to the defense of Mary attacked in public by Mr Hawthorne.

Physical Appearance

Alexander Corwin was an average looking young man, with dark blond hair, green eyes and a medium build. Clothes worn by him were clean and austere, perfectly in line with the Puritan dictates, and historically impeccable.

Throughout the Salem Series

Corwins is knocked out by Alden.

Corwin is knocked out by John Alden.

Mary Sibley is working to include the young council member Alexander Corwin among inner circle of selectmen, to be elected magistrate in place of the late Magistrate John Hale and ensure that office to an undercover of their hive, in clear opposition to the rise to power of Mr. Hathorne. Mrs Sibley meets Corwin at the meeting house to discuss their future and how to plan Corwin's candidacy, unaware of being spied on by John Alden. Corwin, unfortunately, does not show up at The House of the Seven Gables because was captured and imprisoned by Alden, who asks him to reveal the identity of the witches of Salem. Tituba and Mary, in the meantime, perform a wicked spell and put to rest forever Corwin by linking his spirit to a ram's head to whom Tituba cuts the tongue, doing magically the same to Corwin, who bled to death. (From Within) The next morning, Corwin's body was found hanging on display to the gallows and in his mouth a piece of paper with an infamous writing. Mary Sibley took the opportunity to corner Hathorne, but the body of the deceased is carried away by the doctor. Corwin's corpse, or rather his index finger, is then stolen by Mary and Tituba from the laboratory of Dr Wainwright and used to perform a spell to guide the two witches to Corwin's assailant, believed to be a mysterious witch slayer and in order to prevent him from carry out more bloodshed. (Book of Shadows)

Powers and Abilities

Average witch belonging to the Essex Hive, Alexander Corwin is one of the several witches who have found themselves involved in deadly feud ongoing in Salem. Judicious and circumspect, Corwin does not seem addicted to the dark power but rather willing to resort to the black arts only when necessary. And it's right in the head to the House of Seven Gables through dark and narrow alleys that Alexander Corwin senses danger and surrounds himself by a spell which guarantees him invisibility to escape what he perceived as a threatening assailant. Invisibility has, however, as limiting effect to not even give intangibility and it is for this reason that Corwin is discovered and rendered unconscious by John Alden. Like most witches - if not all, according to the shaman and John Alden - Corwin is susceptible to the witch dagger powers as well as to the witch's knot that keeps him tied to iron and dead wood used by Alden to hold off the witch, preventing all sorts of witchcraft.

Name

  • Alexander: Latinized form of the Greek name Αλεξανδρος (Alexandros), which meant "defending men" from Greek αλεξω (alexo) "to defend, help" and ανηρ (aner) "man" (genitive ανδρος). In Greek mythology, this was another name of the hero Paris, and it also belongs to several characters in the New Testament. However, the most famous bearer was Alexander the Great, King of Macedon.
  • Corwin: From an English surname, perhaps derived from Old French cordoan "leather".

Trivia

  • He probably takes his last name from Jonathan Corwin, a wealthy New England merchant, politician, and magistrate. He is best known as one of the judges involved in the Salem witch trials of 1692, although his later work also included service as an associate justice of the Massachusetts Superior Court of Judicature, the highest court of the Province of Massachusetts Bay.
  • A lock of his hair was kept by Mary Sibley in a box with other belongings of her fellow witches, possibly to have control over the members of her hive since she used the lock of hair to track Corwin, and establish a magical link between him and a fetish to cast a spell on him.
