Betty and Millicent Coldstone

It is unknown how she met fellow evil witches, Agatha Cackle and Millicent Coldstone. She attempted to help Agatha gain control of Cackle's Academy.[1] She was shrunk by Mildred Hubble and then frozen by Miss Cackle. She devised a plan with Agatha to help gain control of the school a second time by Agatha going in disguise as Miss Cackle.[2] She and Coldstone attempted to double-cross Agatha by turning on her when they gained control of the school. Miss Cackle rumbled their plan and they were puffified by Mildred.

The New Worst Witch

When Belladonna started at Cackle's, Betty sent her gifts and sent her whatever she asked for such as a puppy in attempt to get Hettie Hubble.[3] She devised another plan to take over Cackle's by getting Belladonna to win the 'Golden Broomstick' so she can open the witches portal so Agatha and Betty can get into Cackle's.[4] Their plot was rumbled by Hettie and her friends. However, she and Agatha manage to escape through the witches portal.
