Witch lands map

A map of the witch clans

The Tikshozero clan[1] was a clan of witches in Lyra's world. Reina Miti was their queen. An ancient rivalry with the Micokojärvi clan meant Miti and Katya Sirkka were sworn to kill each other on sight.[1]

Ruta Skadi recruited the Tikshozero clan among several others to join the cause against the Authority.[2] They battled angels emerging from the Clouded Mountain as part of the forces Lord Asriel had amassed.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Lake Tikshozero is a freshwater lake in the north-west of Russia; its location matches that of the Tikshozero clan territories mapped in a 10th Anniversary Edition appendix of The Subtle Knife.
