Tabitha has tanned skin, dull purple hair that coil up into two large curls on each side of her head, greyish-purple eyes, lavender lipstick and purple eye shadow. In Issue 19 of the comics, her complexion is much paler.
Her outfit is comprised of a rather revealing black bralette, an army green-colored jean skirt bound by a grey belt and dark grey boots. She has noticeably long nails that are painted in the same lavender color to match her lipstick and two diamond-shaped earrings.
In season 8 her hair is a lighter purple, her tube top is a shade of blue, and she now has a pale skin tone.
Tabitha, like witches, can be mean-spirited and petty towards others. She can also be rather vulgar and violent, though, she is still very clever in her own right. She also dislike fairies, and calls Mirta a "traitor" as Mirta became a fairy, when she was originally a witch.
In the comics, Tabitha is much more of a flirt as she and her group purposely came looking for the Specialists during their mission to hunt down any of Lord Darkar's shadow monsters that survived after his downfall. After the Winx and the Specialists let the witches join in their search, Tabitha mainly focuses on flirting with Timmy, even when he shows that he is nervous with her advances.
Tabitha does not make her debut until halfway into Monsters on the Loose, where she, Pulisatilla, Shilly and one other witch come across the Winx and Specialists during their search for any surviving shadow monsters. Shilly acts as the voice of their group, revealing that they purposefully came looking for any Specialists with the hopes of charming them, and the three groups soon form two large groups and split up. Tabitha splits off into a group with Shilly, Timmy, Brandon, Stella, Aisha and Tecna.
During their search, Tabitha flirts with Timmy, who becomes nervous at her advances, until a branch poking out of the cliffside in front of her slams into her nose. Tecna then "apologizes" to Tabitha, hoping that neither she nor Timmy will end up with more serious injuries for the remainder of their mission.
When the group is attacked by a shadow monster and Brandon goes diving into the river below to rescue Shilly, Tabitha follows Timmy's orders to help save their friends.
Tabitha does not appear until the very end of the issue where after Shilly and Brandon have been rescued, the Specialists decide to end their mission early to drop the girls off at their respective schools. During the flight back to Cloud Tower, Tabitha and Pulisatilla ask Shilly for the details of what happened in the caves she got lost in, as she and Brandon were alone together for quite some time. Shilly simply tells them that the ordeal was an interesting one and vows to steal Brandon away from Stella, believing that he is too good to be stuck with a fairy.
Like all witches, her powers are derived from the negative aspects of magic. Tabitha may also know some basic, first-level spells that all witches can use, such as telekinesis, transmuting objects, and fixing minor messes. Like all witches, she can fly. Her magic is green in color.
- The name Tabitha a feminine English given name derived from the Aramaic word "ṭabītā" (טביתא), meaning "gazelle." It is also the name of a woman featured in the Bible (Acts 9:36 to be exact) who was raised from the dead by Saint Peter.
