Gytha 'Nanny' Ogg is the undisputed matriarch of the sprawling Ogg family, and second only to Granny Weatherwax in terms of witching expertise in the ramtops.

Nanny Ogg is a dumpy and bandy-legged old woman with a face like an apple that's been left too long and an expression of near-terminal good nature.  She dresses very like a raven, with the pointy black hat usually marking the witch's trade on top of an extremely thick thatch of white curls.
She is in good shape.
She is standing.
You can't help but notice one hundred warts upon her face.
Wearing : a pair of hobnailed boots, an old black cloak and a pointy black hat.

Appearance and mannerisms

Nanny is a jolly old lady, who is able to make herself at home in any company. She has had many admirers in her younger days, but time has now left her with a body that could only be called comfortable and a face like Mr Grape the Happy Raisin.

Like Granny Weatherwax, she goes in for the regulation black witches hat and cloak; unlike Granny, however, she likes to wear red boots, drink scumble, and sing the hedgehog song.


Nanny's cottage is located in the centre of Lancre Town, however, she has left tending the cottage to some of her myriad daughters-in-law, and is usually to be found outside Granny Weatherwax's cottage.

Guild roles

Nanny is best known as the teacher of the hedgehog command and its associated verses.

When asked nicely, she also teaches many other witch commands.

She can also provide witches with a list of spells that they can learn from Granny, if they ask her 'What spells does Granny teach'.

Other information

  • Nanny knows the recipe for brewing scumble, though you may need to trick her to get it.
