Prue Halliwell was the oldest daughter of Patricia Halliwell and Victor Bennett. She was the older sister of Piper and Phoebe Halliwell and half-sister of Paige Matthews.

As the oldest of the Charmed Ones, Prue was often viewed as the leader and the most powerful. She inherited the power of Telekinesis from her ancestor Melinda Warren and later gained the power of Astral Projection.

Prue was tragically killed by the demon Shax after her sisters made a deal with the Source of All Evil to reset time after magic was exposed to the world.


Early Life

Prue was the firstborn daughter of Patricia Halliwell and Victor Bennett. As the oldest sister, Prue always felt responsible for her sisters, causing her to mature on an early age and take care of her sisters. She was greatly affected by her mother's death and wasn't able to say she loved anyone for years. Prue also resented her father from leaving for a long time, although the relationship was somewhat restored after she became a witch and unstood why he left. Prue and her sisters were raised by their Grams.

As a teenager, Prue was very popular and dated Andy Trudeau, whom she had known her entire life and went to high school with. During high school, she also had another boyfriend tried to hurt her. It was hinted that Grams made this boy disappear. In her college years, Prue went to a depression after getting involved in a car accident that injured Phoebe. After college, Prue became engaged to Roger, her boss from the museum. However, Roger made a move at Phoebe, of which Prue blamed Phoebe for a long time. He also took advantage of her at work, causing Prue to eventually break up with him.

Charmed Life

When Prue became a witch, she gained the power of Telekinesis. As the oldest, she still felt responsible for the safety of her sisters and often took the lead when fighting demons. Prue was initially reluctant to be a witch, as she was concerned for their safetly, though ultimately started loving it. During this time, Prue started working at the Buckland auction house, which was led by two warlocks. She and her sisters eventually defeated them. Meanwhile, Prue started dating Andy again, who was now a police inspector and her magical secret caused a lot of problems for them. Andy eventually found out the truth and was later killed by a demon. Prue was heartbroken by his death and blamed herself a long time.

In her second year as a witch, Prue gained the power of Astral Projection. She also started dating her co-worker Jack Sheridan. However, Prue later decided to quit and follow her passion for photography. She also had a short fling with the criminal Bane Jessup.

In her third year, Prue became more active in demon hunting and improved her skill, becoming a 'Super Witch', to vanquish Belthazor. When she found out about the Triad, she became obsessed with vanquishing them. During this time, Prue became suspicious of Phoebe's boyfriend Cole, especially when he was discovered to be Belthazor. Prue was furious when she found out Phoebe had faked his death because she loved him. However, Cole later proved himself several times, causing Prue to accept him, though she remained cautious.

After magic had been exposed to the sisters vanquishing Shax in front of a camera, all hell broke loose. Ultimately Phoebe made a deal with the Source to restore time, though Prue and Piper were left severely injured by the demonic assassin. With Phoebe and Leo still in the Underworld, they were too late to heal Prue and she died of her injuries.


Shortly after Prue's death, the existence of a fourth sister was revealed. Through a spell cast by Piper, she was unknowlingly drawn to the funeral, where Phoebe had a premonition about Shax attacking her. Piper and Phoebe eventually summoned their Grams and mother, who revealed the truth. The sisters later united with Paige and managed to vanquish Shax, avenging Prue and restoring the Power of Three.

Her sisters greatly mourned her death and struggled to move on and accept Paige as their new sister. Piper in particular was devastated by her death, which eventually led to her temporarily being transformed into a Fury until Leo and Paige managed to calm her down.
