Dulcinea Wilkes (1760-1790) was a well-known witchcraft activist in World Twelve Ba. Born in Steeple Bumstead, Essex, she moved to London in 1781 and became embroiled in the Witches’ Uprising in 1789, where she cast various violent spells. Along with the other ringleaders of the uprising, Wilkes was burned at the stake. According to the legend, as she burned, the lead of St Paul’s Cathedral dripped off the dome. Effigies of her (obviously representing the real-life Guy Fawkes burnings) continued to be burnt atop St Paul’s until 1845, when the practice was discontinued owing to the high price of lead.
