The Candlemaker is an ancient wish-granting deity destined to turn the world to wax. It was cursed onto Dorothy Spinner as an imaginary friend she was meant to fight, but she refused and forced it to be her ally.


  • Wish Fulfillment: The Candlemaker can bestow any wish that Dorothy makes, all she has to do is spawn a candle and blow it out. However, doing so makes the Candlemaker stronger, forcing Dorothy to never want to wish for anything.
  • Superhuman Strength
  • Superhuman Durability
  • Molecular Reconstruction: The Candlemaker's presence can melt objects around him like wax. He can also turn his victims into frozen wax sculptures.
  • Imaginary Friend Creation: At full strength, the Candlemaker can spawn the imaginary friends of any of his opponents. [1]


  • Power Limitation: The Candlemaker is bound to Dorothy, only able to impact the world when she makes a wish or when she becomes a woman (in the form of her first period).
