Prudence Melinda Wyatt, born February 2nd 2003, is the alternate timeline daughter of Piper Halliwell and Leo Wyatt. She was born in the timeline of Morality Bites, where her aunt Phoebe killed a mortal and was sentenced to burn at the stake, exposing magic to the world and bringing back the Witch Trials.
As an adult, Melinda became the leader of a magical resistance created to protect witches and other magical beings. She is close friends with Bridget Ellis and Jake Porter, who are a part of her resistance. She is also an older sister figure to Layton Wyatt.
Melinda was born to Piper Halliwell and Leo Wyatt in an alternate timeline some time after the Charmed Ones managed to vanquish the Source, who at that time had possessed Cole Turner. Her birth was a special occasion as she was the first known Whitelighter-Witch in her reality. Melinda had a relatively peaceful childhood, though her life soon changed.
When Melinda was about five, her aunt Phoebe was arrested for killing a mortal with her powers and sentenced to burn at the stake. This act lead to the exposure of magic and the start of the new Witch Trials. During this time, the relationship between Melinda's parents also became strained and Piper and Leo ultimately divorced. In the year 2009, her aunt Prue and her mother planned to break Phoebe out of jail before she was burned, but they were caught and condemned to the same fate. Melinda then grew up under the care of her father, who was often away helping other witches. Due to her mother and aunts being trialed as witches, Melinda grew up in a hostile environment and was unable to practice her magic due to fear of getting caught.
Becoming A Rebel
However, as a teenager, Melinda began using her powers to break out and protect witches and innocents who were charged with witchcraft. During this time, her father was also arrested and sentenced, though she was too late to save him and exposed herself in the process. This forced her to go underground. A few years later, Melinda befriended a young witch, Layton Harris, who had been disowned by his parents for being a witch. Melinda felt a strong connection to him and decided to make him her unofficial 'little brother'.
Starting the Resistance
As an adult, Melinda started actively fighting the government and protecting witches, providing them with shelter. Several of the witches she saved decided to join her cause. Melinda accepted their help and created the Resistance. During this time she became close friends with Bridget Ellis and Jake Porter.
In 2025, during one raid on a government facility, Melinda freed Sam Reid while under the impression that he was a witch as well. However, when he revealed himself as a half-demon, Melinda tried to vanquish him, fearing that he was a threat to her friends. However, they ultimately decided they needed to work together to escape. She and the others later allowed Sam to join the resistance, as he sought to redeem himself.
