Lynessa is the daughter of the witch Zamora and twin sister of Zinna. She took her residence in Skarab, a region in the west of Oz. As such she became known as the Wicked Witch of the West.
Like most characters of the Grimm Fairy Tales lore, Lynessa has her inspiration in fairy tales or literature. Lynessa is inspired on the Wicked Witch of the West from L. Frank Baum's children's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900).
