  • Nessarose Thropp the Eminent Thropp of Munchkinland also known as the Wicked Witch of the East is a character from the 1995 book titled Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by author Gregory Maguire. The character also appears in musical Wicked. She is one of the antagonists of both the novel and musical, and L. Frank Baum's 1900 book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Nessarose is the spoiled younger sister of Elphaba, aka the Wicked Witch of the West. In both the play and the novel, Elphaba is considered a tomboy second to her very beautiful and attractive but delicately handicapped sister, and is often expected to put the needs of Nessarose before her own. In both the novel and the musical, Nessarose is called by the nickname Nessa, although in the book, she also goes by Nessie. During her rule over Munchkinland, she is dubbed "The Wicked Witch of the East ", for her one sided business deals and cruel ways and overall use of sorcery to control her people. Nessarose meets her demise when Dorothy Gale's farmhouse which was carried by a Kansas cyclone, unexpectedly lands in Oz and tragically crushes her to death. Thus, enabling Dorothy to become the new owner of her magic slippers. Unlike Wicked, the Wicked Witch of the East never made her appearance in L. Frank Baum's 1900 book titled The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, she is only seen with her feet sticking out from under the fallen house.
