I know in the 90s anime they seem to be completely human and I don't ever remember it being mentioned that they are aliens or even possessed by Daimons.
In the manga, I was always confused if they had ever been human, I seem to recall Kaolinite saying she created them from clay, but I can't find it now.
I do remember Tomoe claiming he made a perfect fusion between alien and human life and had them in a tank.
Was it only the revived Witches 5 who attack in the Mugen Academy who were clay or were they always golems?
Also, if they were originally humans, I suppose they were totally willing to become possessed and it is why they are perfect hosts for the Daimon.

I assumed they were humans in the 90s but created or vessels in Crystal and the Manga. Would have been interesting if Sailor Moon used her healing powers on them but they were probably acceptable hosts like Tomoe.

Kaolinite was the only who appears to be forced in my opinion, though it might also be possible Tomoe "forced" them to be hosts too by tricking them into thinking they would be his lab assistants and made them hosts instead.

Then again he could have also created them but if so, why stop with just the 5 of them? I'm sure he would have made more?

Considering we see what happens when those eggs hit civilians or animals and stuff, when Sailor Moon does her attack, the host is freed but that doesn't happen to Witches 5, Kaori, or the Mad Scientist, they get demolished..lol

Its interesting because the Un Nouveau Voyage (2015) musical (wow ... 2015?), musical, I had the impression that the Witches 5 were all humans who worked in Tomoe's lab before the lab blew up. My headcanon is that after Professor Tomoe made the deal with Pharaoh 90 the Witches 5 became hosts of Daimon Eggs like Kaoriknite because their bodies too were affected by the explosion. That's why the Witches Five can't be healed because their bodies were corrupted beyond repair.

I think in the manga they were definitely science artificial humans.In Crystal their was a brief scene with them in tubes.

Flipping through the Eternal editions, it seems like they were human girls that underwent the full process of becoming hosts for the daimon eggs.
Professor Tomoe mentions to Kaolinite after she's lost the first few witches that she is wasting his eggs when she wastes her soldiers.

In Crystal, Mimete uses eggs to possess some students at her concert but in the manga, she asks Kaolinite for help and Kaolinite says it's a waste, but she has to rush the development of the eggs in the students and forces them to become monsters. Apparently, they've already implanted them in some students and are letting them be taken over slowly.

They also mention how disappointing it is that Haruka and Michiru left the school since they would have made perfect hosts.
Tomoe also says he managed to create some beautiful results when vesseling the eggs in specimens and it shows the Witches when he says this.
Whether this means they were human women or if he created artificial bodies isn't right out stated, but I'm assuming they really are students and teachers he experimented on.

It shows Hotaru in one of the test tubes like the Witches are in, in Crystal, so that also seems to point towards them being real, that and they do have human identities (eg Mimi Hanyu, Ruru Teruno)

I think the reason I believed they were clay is when Kaolinite summons them back again to attack the Senshi, they trap the Senshi in wax and when they are destroyed by Submarine Reflection, they melt into wax themselves along with fake versions of the inner Senshi who were also wax.
It was probably the Mixx translation that called it clay.

As for the '90s, I do think they are humans, and probably not possessed since we don't see anything like that out of them besides possibly Cryprine/Ptilol.
It makes me wonder what they were offered to do such horrible things.
