History

Prue: "That's my doll."
Piper: "You gave it to me."
Prue: "No, I didn't. You stole it."
— Prue and Piper when they were toddlers.[src]

Piper was born on June 7th, 1973 to Patty Halliwell and Victor Bennett. On March 24th, 1975, she was visited by her future self who, along with the future selves of her older and younger sisters, tried to unbind the bond that her mother had made with the warlock Nicholas. She had promised him the powers of her daughters and had granted him immunity from those powers by blessing his ring.

Piper in 1975.
Added by PerryPeverellIn November 1975, Piper and her older sister Prue Halliwell welcomed their little sister Phoebe Halliwell into the world. Not long after her birth, their grandmother, Penny, bound their powers in order to keep them safe from Nicholas. To ensure their safety and a normal childhood, Penny erased all magic-related memories, causing them to forget about magic and their abilities.

In her teen years, Piper didn't quite know where she fit in; according to Prue she was like the Jan Brady.[1][2] An old classmate of hers also recalled that Piper liked to sit in the back of the class, drawing on her jeans.[3]

Becoming a Charmed OneEdit
Piper and her sisters on the night that their powers reawakened.
Added by PerryPeverell"I hate being a witch."
—Piper to her youngest sister, Phoebe.[src]
On October 7th, 1998, Piper's youngest sister, Phoebe Halliwell returned from New York after spending six moths there. On that night, Phoebe had cast a spell that reawakened the powers of the three sisters that were bound by their grams when they were young.

Both Prue and Piper did not believe Phoebe when she told them that they were witches. However, soon after, Piper discovered that she had the power to freeze time as she initially thought, freezing Chef Moore during her job interview and believed her youngest sister.

Piper is confused and scared about being witches.
Added by PerryPeverellAt first, Piper was confused and hated being a witch. Not sure from where her powers came or if she was truly a good being, she tried to keep the magic down. However, she couldn't fully control her power and often froze the scene when she began to panic.

Phoebe convinced her that Piper was good, since she was the most caring person Phoebe knew. Piper, still not sure if she was truly good, went to a local church. As she stepped inside, she was convinced that she was good as she was not struck by lightning.[4]

Quitting Quake and Opening P3Edit
Another busy night for P3.
Added by Buffymybasset"I owe it all to Joanne. She made me realize that somehow I had forgotten what my dreams were, still are. I always wanted to be a chef and have my own restaurant not manage one. It's a good job and the pay's okay but it's not my dream job."
—Piper deciding to quite her job at Quake.[src]
At Quake, Piper constantly had to work in double shifts. She was unhappy with her job and the lousy boss she had, which is why she decided to quit and pursue her life long dream of owning her own restaurant.

"The Industrial Zone".
Added by NicknameguyHowever, opening a restaurant would be too risky and thus Piper opted for a nightclub instead. She had set her sight on a building formerly know as "The Industrial Zone". Prue claimed it was a great place, saying that she often used to go to that club after work.[5]

With the help of her sisters, Piper got a loan and bought the club. She named it P3 which stands for "The Power of Three" as well as for herself and her sisters; Prue, Piper and Phoebe. Though some say they thought it was the name of a parking level.[6]

The sisters and Leo having fun at P3.
Added by PerryPeverellP3 had a rough start. The first few nights didn't attract many people and Piper was already in the red. Prue had already contacted someone from the bank to help pay off the loan. However, when Leo Wyatt had put a spell on Jeff Carlton, who was the manager of a popular rock-band called Dishwalla, the club was put on the map.

The club became the place-to-be in San Francisco and was the biggest source of income after Prue had quitted her job at Bucklands. It was also the place where the sisters would go to after they had fought another demon. Piper tried hard to keep P3 demon free, and she succeeded very well.

Prue's Death and Accepting PaigeEdit
"Tell her, Piper. It's all right to hate her. You should hate her! When my parents died, I hated them for it. I was alone, and I hated them. It is okay to hate Prue."
—Paige to a raged Piper, to break her down to let out her true emotions.[src]
Piper breaks down at Prue's memorial plaque.
Added by LeonardoWyattOn May 17th, 2001, Piper's elder sister, Prue Halliwell was killed in battle by the demon Shax. The sudden loss of their sister was devastating for Piper and Phoebe, but it had hit Piper harder. Her emotional rage caused her to act reckless towards demons and got herself turned into a fury.[7]

After Prue's funeral, the two sisters find out that they have a half-sister named Paige.

Piper accepts Paige as her sister.
Added by PerryPeverellPiper has trouble accepting Paige as her sister. When she was turned into a Fury, Paige caused Piper to breakdown and reveal how she felt about Prue's death. Finally revealing her true emotions, Piper, turned normal again, could start to mourn Prue and accept Paige as her sister.

Piper had baked muffins for Paige and brought them to her at South Bay Social Services, where Paige worked. When Piper was a Fury, she had scratched Paige in the neck and thus wanted to apologize.

Phoebe Becomes the Queen of the UnderworldEdit
Cole and Phoebe flame to the Underworld as King and Queen.
Added by PerryPeverell"Phoebe, you're evil. You're like the queen of all evil, literally."
—Piper to Phoebe Halliwell.[src]
Cole Turner tricked Phoebe Halliwell in marrying him through a Dark Binding[8], not knowing that Cole had become the Source of All Evil. Paige and Piper had figured this out[9] and wanted to confront Phoebe with this. However, Phoebe had a bigger surprise for them: she was pregnant. When she found out the truth through a premonition, she was in shock, however, the Seer convinced her to become the Queen of the Underworld.

Added by PerryPeverellConvinced that it was impossible to turn her good again, Piper prepared potions to vanquish Phoebe. Leo and Paige tried to convince her that Phoebe still had good in her, but Piper was stubborn and didn't listen. She had lost a sister again and would rather see Phoebe dead then as the Queen of the Underworld and thus all evil.

Feeling helpless, Piper turned to alcohol and drunk herself unconscious. Paige was able to wake her up and convinced her that Phoebe could still be saved, and still turn good, as she had seen signs of goodness in Phoebe.

Piper, Phoebe and Paige vanquishing Cole.
Added by PerryPeverellFiguring out that vanquishing Cole could turn Phoebe back, Piper, Paige and Leo went to their penthouse and confronted Cole. Right at the moment where Cole was about to kill her sisters, Phoebe interrupted. She joined her sisters and vanquished Cole.

Phoebe was still pregnant, however, and the baby began taking over Phoebe. Piper tried to bind its powers but the baby kept defending itself and its mother. The Seer was able to steal the baby and crowned herself as Source of All Evil. She, together with the infernal council members were ultimately vanquished by the sisters, after which life returned to normal.

The Birth of Wyatt HalliwellEdit
The sisters are overjoyed when they find out Piper is pregnant.
Added by PerryPeverellPhoebe: "Don't you get it?"
Piper: "What?"
Phoebe: "Don't you get it? She's pregnant!"
Piper: "Who's pregnant? I'm pregnant?"
Phoebe: "Hi baby!"
— The sisters find out Piper is pregnant.[src]
After many failed attempts, Piper managed to get pregnant. The pregnancy was not easy. Aside from the problems of a mortal pregnancy, Piper's powers became uncontrollable and she often burped orbs. This was all caused by the growing powers of the baby she was carrying, who also swapped the powers of his parents when they had a fight, so that they could walk a mile in each others shoes.

The baby protects himself and Piper from a Darklighter arrow.
Added by TheBookBoth the sisters, Leo and even Darryl decided it was best for Piper if she would stay out of demon fighting. That way, the baby wouldn't be hurt. However, the baby proved to be able to defend himself and his mother from the womb by using a protection shield and healing wounds. Piper became invincible.[10]

Invincible as she temporary was, Piper was still vulnerable for diseases. During her third trimester, Piper was diagnosed with Toxemia. The doctor said the treatment involved a no-salt diet, no stress and lots of bed rest for the rest of her pregnancy.

Added by PerryPeverellThe next day, Phoebe, Paige and Leo discover that magic has disappeared from the world. As it turns out, a prophecy made long ago is about to come true: the birth of the Twice-Blessed Child.

Piper gave birth to her son, Wyatt Halliwell, on the dining room table on the same night. Wyatt came in a swirl of orbs, much to the surprise of everyone. However, everyone was under the impression that Piper and Leo's child would be a girl,[11] and thus it was an even bigger surprise to see Mr. Winkie between the legs, as Phoebe had put it.

Breaking Up With Leo WyattEdit
Leo: "As an Elder I have the power to take your pain away."
Piper: "You can't make me forget you."
Leo: "No, help you find peace."
— Piper and Leo break up.[src]
Leo taking Piper's pain away.
Added by PerryPeverellPiper and Leo temporarily broke up when Leo became an Elder. He was forced by the other Elders to stay in the Heavens. When they hugged, Leo used one of his new Elder powers to take Piper's pain away, making it easier for her to accept a life without him. He would lower the effects of this power each day until it would finally wore off.

Phoebe feels Piper's pain.
Added by PerryPeverellHowever, Chris had sent Leo to Valhalla[12] making him unable to lower the effects of the power. As a result, Piper became an over-happily woman who was happy with every little thing in life and always had a big smile on her face.

Phoebe and Paige had no clue of what Leo had done and tried to find a way to turn her into her normal self. Paige had cast a Memory Spell on Piper, hoping that she would turn normal again, instead, it erased all off Piper's memory. She still was an over-happily woman, but she had no clue who she was and where she was or even that she was a witch.

Piper and Leo decide he moves out of the manor.
Added by PerryPeverellSome time later, when the sisters could free Leo, Piper's memory came back and the power that Leo had used on here wore off when she saw him. Phoebe felt her pain with her newly gained Empathy power and began punching Leo.[13]

Back in San Francisco, Piper and Leo decided that it was best that Leo moved out of the manor. He was still allowed to come over and spend time with Wyatt. This proved to be rather difficult for Leo.[14]

The Birth of Chris HalliwellEdit
Piper after she finds out that Chris is her son.
Added by PerryPeverellPaige: "Uh, Chris is your son."
Phoebe: "Wyatt's brother. Look, I know this is huge..."
Piper: "No, it's, it's not huge because it's not possible, it's crazy because I'm not pregnant."
— Paige and Phoebe reveal to Piper that Chris is her son.[src]
Chris was conceived when Piper and Leo were trapped in Limbo by a Darklighter. Although she and Leo had no idea that Chris was their son, Phoebe and Paige both had already found out.[15]

Piper's baby bump when pregnant of Chris.
Added by PerryPeverellThey had kept it secret from Piper until they knew that she was finally pregnant. When they told Piper, the sisters decided to keep it secret from Leo. According to Piper it would make things way to difficult for her and Leo if he knew. A few weeks later, when Piper and Chris were attacked by the Spider Demon, Phoebe and Paige had to tell Leo.

The pregnancy, like Wyatt's, didn't go smoothly. Piper lost a lot of blood and could have died during the birth, but the doctors could save her and Chris. In the meanwhile, adult Chris had died. He was killed by Gideon whilst protecting his younger brother Wyatt.

Temporary Retirement from being a Charmed OneEdit
Piper's new appearance.
Added by PerryPeverellPiper: "Just say you're okay with it."
Phoebe: "So we can get the next generation ready to pick up where we left off."
— Piper and Phoebe to Leo.[src]
After vanquishing one of their biggest foes, Zankou, Piper and her sisters decided to retire from magic. They took on the appearances of three other women and also gave Leo another appearance. They faked their deaths and had Victor temporarily move into the manor.

Piper's memorial.
Added by TheBookAfter their funeral, Victor told them that the constant changes of appearances confused both him and the children. That is why Phoebe decided that the sisters should choose one appearance and make it a permanent one by the use of a spell. Piper chose the look of a blonde, which Leo liked a lot.

The sisters and Leo also changed identities, becoming the cousins of their father Victor. Piper was now known as Jenny Bennett and Leo as Louis, her husband.

The Ultimate BattleEdit
The Charmed Ones summon the Hollow.
Added by PerryPeverellPhoebe: "First the Triad..."
Piper: "Then Billie and Christy."
— Piper and Phoebe before the Ultimate Battle.[src]
When Christy Jenkins had turned her sister, Billie, as well as the whole magical community against the sisters, making them believe they didn't care for anything else but themselves anymore, Piper and her sisters were banished to the Underworld. They were able to go to Phoebe's condo and prepare themselves to battle the Jenkins'.

Piper is knocked unconscious by the epic explosion.
Added by PerryPeverellTheir first encounter with the two Jenkins' occurred in the manor. Both the Halliwell's as well as the Jenkins' had prepared potions of the same strength. When the potion bottles collided, it created an epic explosion that blasted the Jenkins' through the banister of the stairs, hurting Christy and the Halliwell's through the windows of the sunroom, knocking Piper unconscious.

Added by PerryPeverellPaige orbed her sisters back to the condo where two demons, Nomed and Zohar awaited them. The two demons had a proposition: the sisters should summon the Hollow and let it infect them after which they would collect the powers of the Triad and then kill Billie and Christy. Everything went according to plan but it killed Phoebe and Paige as well as Christy. Angered, Piper began punching Billie who was still alive.

Saving Phoebe and PaigeEdit

Added by Avatar2483"But if you lend me your ring, I think I can go back in time and save her. It can do that, right? I mean, you can go back in time."
—Piper to Coop, planning on saving her sisters.[src]
With the help of Coop's ring, Piper travelled back in time with Leo to 1975. Although Piper wanted to go back to Phoebe right before the Ultimate Battle, she travelled back to the moment of her conception. She and Leo appeared right into the bedroom of her mother and father, Patty and Victor.

Piper, Leo and Patty in 2050.
Added by PerryPeverellPatty joined Piper and Leo and travelled to 2050. Again, Piper arrived in another time then she intended. She wanted to travel to her Grams in 1975 but instead travelled to the time where she herself was a grandmother. Piper and Leo's future selves advised the three on how they could save Phoebe and Paige. By returning the Hollow back to where it was contained before the whole manor exploded, they would save them.

Patty, Piper and Penny returning the Hollow.
Added by PerryPeverellFiguring that the Power of Three would be needed to return the Hollow. Piper, Patty and Leo got Grams. The four travelled back to 2006. Right on the moment that they arrive, the Charmed Ones and the Jenkins' start battle. Piper, Patty and Penny successfully pull the Hollow out of the five woman. Time adjusts itself to its new future and Piper flashes into her past self becoming her present self again. Phoebe and Paige are saved, alive again. Not long after, the Charmed Ones and Billie are able to kill The Triad and Christy and return Patty and Penny safely to their own time again.

By the year 2050, Piper and Leo live a happy and healthy live in the manor. Piper still has possession of the Book of Shadows and reads from it to her nine grandchildren until she is tired and needs to rest. She still appears with long hair, though it has become completely grey.[16]

—Leo to Phoebe about Piper.[src]
Piper's longest and permanent relationship was with Leo Wyatt. She met Leo for the first time when he came to the sisters as a handyman. While he actually served as the Charmed Ones' Whitelighter, Leo was forbidden to have any romantic relationships with his charges.

Professional LifeEdit■Bank: Before working at Quake, Piper had a job as a banker. Much to her grandmother's dismay, Piper did not want to work as a chef at a restaurant since a job as banker earned more, and the family could use all the money they could get.

Though the club struggled a few times, the club did well and was the biggest source of income for the sisters.

PersonalityEdit"Piper, listen to me. You are the most sweetest, most caring person I've ever met. No, I mean that, you are. You're always there to help anybody, even strangers. You've been doing it your whole life."
—Phoebe Halliwell to Piper.[src]
Piper is described as the most kind, caring, and maternal of the four sisters. She can be very sarcastic and quick-witted, a trait likely acquired from years of looking up to Prue. Piper grew from the meek, shy and very much arbiter middle sister, to a confident, charge-taking, quite comedic cynical woman.

20 of 187..Of all four sisters, Piper's appearance changes the least frequently and drastically. However, even these trivial changes reflect how her character changes.

■Hair: For her entire childhood and going into her twenties, Piper sports dark brown hair of a moderate length and bangs. She lets her hair grow and gets a slightly lighter shade. Piper continues to grow her hair and gets light brown highlights during her first pregnancy. The highlights wear off and wears bangs again. She continues to grow her hair and has a loose curl on occasion. Piper lets her hair grow long and cuts it occasionally. In 2050, Piper still has long hair and lets it turn grey.
■Aliases: As the alias Jenny Bennett, Piper has blonde hair which is generally shorter then the hair of her normal appearance. Her second alias, Jamie Bennett has long brown hair with loose curls.
■Wardrobe: Her fashion sense is conservative during her early twenties. As she grows older she starts to wear more feminine clothes as well as hair gloves on occasion.
■Make-up: Piper wears little to no make up. She keeps it clean and chooses colors that match her skin and lips closely. She only wears more make-up then usual for parties and other events.
EtymologyEdit■Piper: A name that came from a surname given to those who played the flute pipe.
■Halliwell: Derived from any of the several places named with the Old English pre 7th Century elements "halig" meaning "holy", plus "well(a)", a well or spring. These places include Halliwell in Lancashire, recorded as Haliwell circa 1200; Holwell in Dorset and Oxfordshire appearing respectively as Halegewelle and Haliwelle in the Domesday Book of 1086; Halwell and Halwill in Devonshire, recorded as Halgewilla in 1086, and Holywell in Northumberland, Kent, Cambridgeshire and Cornwall.
