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

Initially the oldest and most powerful of the Charmed Ones, Prue was tragically killed by the demonic assassin Shax in 2001. While her sisters mourned her death, they discovered the existence of Paige, who could reconstitute the Power of Three.

Over the years, Prue's spirit remained peacefully in the afterlife with her family and love Andy Trudeau. However, she never appeared before her sisters, as the pain of her death was too much for her to handle. Several years later, after the Charmed Ones fulfilled their destiny and reclaimed Magic School, Prue finally appeared before Piper after secretly assisting Billie by flipping the pages of the Book of Shadows.


Early LifeEdit

Charmed LifeEdit



Six months after the Ultimate Battle, Prue assisted the young witch Billie Jenkins by flipping the pages of the Book of Shadows like her grandmother used too. When the sisters later asked Billie about it, Piper suspected it was Prue who helped her out. She later used the spell to summon a spirit and Prue appeared before her for the first time after her death.

Basic Powers

  • Spell Casting: The ability to cast spells and perform rituals.
  • Potion Making: The ability to brew magical potions.
  • Scrying: The ability to locate beings or objects with a crystal and a map.

Active Powers

  • Telekinesis: The ability to move objects and beings with the mind. Prue could use this power to increase her physical strength and agility and redirect magical attacks. She initially channeled it through her eyes, but later became able to use her hands. In an alternate future, Prue's power advanced further, allowing her to fire blasts of concussive kinetic energy that easily destroyed the manor attic.
  • Astral Projection: The ability to project the consciousness outside of the body in astral form. It first manifested when Prue felt a strong desire to be at two places at once and was quite exhausting at first. Prue could not use her powers in astral mode, though she was trying to learn this shortly before her death.

Passive Powers

  • High Resistance: The ability to be highly resistant to physical and magical harm.
