Covenant of the Goddess

There are no appointed or elected "kings" and "queens" of Witches, though some individuals have adopted those titles. A high priestess from whose coven others have hived off is entitled to be called a Witch Queen, which is entirely different.

Many covens have a maiden, who is at least a second-degree Witch and is the personal assistant of the high priestess. The maiden can substitute for the high priestess in certain tasks; she also handles various administrative duties. She is likely to be in charge of a "training circle" of potential initiates. According to tradition, the office of maiden is held by one woman, until she succeeds the high priestess or leaves to form her own coven. In some covens, the position may be rotated as a means of training for third degree.

Many covens have a summoner, also called a fetch, who is in charge of scheduling meetings and notifying members.
