Piper Halliwell is a fictional character from the WB science fiction comedy-drama series Charmed and its subsequent spin-offs. The character is portrayed by actress Holly Marie Combs, and appeared in every episode of Charmed from its pilot, "Something Wicca This Way Comes", first broadcast on October 7, 1998, until its series finale, "Forever Charmed". Piper was developed by Charmed creator Constance M. Burge as the middle of three sisters, until the death of elder sister Prue Halliwell's (Shannen Doherty) at the end of the third season. After the discovery of her long-lost half-sister, Paige Matthews, Piper became the eldest of three sisters, a role she kept for the remainder of the series' run.
She is one of the show's titular characters, the Charmed Ones, and the owner of nightclub P3 in San Francisco, where the series is set. Piper is married to her former whitelighter, Leo Wyatt (Brian Krause) and is the mother of two sons and a daughter. Her storylines revolve around her attempts towards a normal life, despite her supernatural abilities, and her overcoming the obstacles of her romantic relationship with Leo, including saving their eldest son, Wyatt Halliwell, from becoming evil.
Combs was cast as Piper after initially auditioning for the role of Prue. The character has appeared in most spin-off material, including the novel series, the video game, and the board games. Combs won a Best Lead Actress in a Science Fiction Series award in the 2003 RATTY Awards, and a Best Television Actress award in the 2005 Series Magazine Awards. She has also been nominated for a further three RATTY Awards. In 2008, AOL Television named Piper the third greatest witch in television history.
Piper Halliwell was born August 8, 1973, the second child of Patricia Halliwell and Victor Bennett. In the Season One episode "That 70's Episode", it is revealed that, on March 24, 1975, she was visited by a future version of herself. It was also on that day that Patty made a pact with the warlock Nicholas to make him a ring that made him immune to her daughters' powers. After Piper's younger sister, Phoebe, was born in November 1975, Penny bound their powers to keep Nicholas from collecting them and ultimately killing them.
Growing up, Piper is the middle sister—meek, shy and very much the arbitrator between her sisters, Phoebe and Prue as originally witnessed in the first episode of the series “Something Wicca This Way Comes”.
It was revealed in the season three episode, Coyote Piper, that Piper wore glasses and braces in high school and was a shy and awkward student often feeling overshadowed by her sisters and classmates such as Joanne Hertz and Missy Campbell. She ran for freshman class secretary but was too nervous to finish her speech; needing Prue to finish it for her. One of her friends was Justin Harper, who later dates Prue in season three, having had a crush on her throughout high school. Piper graduated Baker High School in 1990.
Flashbacks from the Season Three episode “PreWitched” reveal that Piper was trained as an accountant and a chef at college. She worked as a bank teller after her college graduation, but was persuaded by Grams to resign. Right after Grams died in 1998 from a heart attack while walking down the stairs, Piper worked as a private caterer and as a chef at a trendy bar/restaurant in downtown San Francisco called "Quake".
After their Grams dies Piper and her older sister Prue move back into their childhood home — a Victorian manor which has been in their family for generations and willed to the sisters. The pilot picks up six months later when their youngest sister Phoebe moves home and discovers The Book of Shadows in their attic, from an old spirit board. The three sisters make the discovery of an ancient prophecy which spoke of generations of Halliwell's culminating in the arrival of three sisters becoming the most powerful witches known to walk the earth -- The Charmed Ones.
As a new witch, Piper develops the power of molecular immobilization; the ability to slow down the molecules of an object or person to the point of motionless activity. At first her power was triggered by fear and only works on people/objects within close range in the same room as her. She also has no control over the length of time the effects last. She used her power for the first time during a practical interview for Quake -- Chef Moore entered before she had completed her recipe, and she froze him accidentally, to complete her dish.
The first season of the series focused on Piper and her sisters learning about their witchcraft and using their magical gifts to protect innocents from the supernatural evils that plague San Francisco. While Prue acts as the fearless lead witch and Phoebe is the care free and reckless spell-caster, Piper takes up the reins as the moral compass and voice of reason for the Charmed Ones. Unlike her sisters, Piper was the most reluctant to embrace her destiny as a Charmed One fearing that it might mean she was evil (“I've Got You Under My Skin”). During the initial season the main antagonists for Piper and her sisters are warlocks, with the occasional demon appearing sporadically throughout the season.
During her first year as a witch, Piper proves to be the sister most "unlucky in love". Her relationship with Jeremy Burns ended when she found out he was warlock intent of stealing her powers, she also fell for Mark Cho — a ghost who needed the sister's help avenging his death. Later, she meets Leo Wyatt, a handyman hired to do odd jobs around the manor (“Thank You for Not Morphing”). Piper and Phoebe both compete for his affections, but Piper ultimately wins his heart. Leo turns out to be a "guardian angel" or "Whitelighter" to the Halliwells and was forbidden from pursuing a romantic relationship with his "charge" (“Secrets and Guys”). The pair part ways, but not for long.
Season Two begins as Piper and her sisters celebrate their one year anniversary as witches (“Witch Trial”). Piper leaves her management role at Quake and opens her own nightclub, aptly named P3. Early in the season, Piper's relationship with Leo ends because of the distance required for his responsibilities as a Whitelighter. She began seeing her next-door neighbor, Dan Gordon, however a love triangle forms once Leo returns mortal. Piper constantly struggles to choose between Dan or Leo, a decision which doesn't become clear until the final half of the season when she chooses to be with Leo ("Murphy's Luck"). Season Two also shows Piper dealing with the loss of her first innocent, her Doctor, which greatly affects her. At season's end, Piper and her sister discover that the demonic attacks on their lives have not been random, but orchestrated by an evil demonic power known as The Triad ("Be Careful What You Witch For").
Season Three sees Piper and Leo begin a tenuous journey down the road towards marriage. After The Elders forbid their relationship ("The Honeymoon's Over"),Leo proposes to Piper as a holy union is something that cannot be broken, but they must plan their wedding in secret in case they are discovered before the ceremony take place. Their plans are exposed to the magical community and Leo is taken away by the Elders causing Piper goes on a magical strike and refusing to hunt demons until he is returned to her. However, she realizes that she cannot shirk her duties Leo is returned on the condition that their relationship does not interfere with their magical responsibilities ("Once Upon A Time").
Meanwhile, the newly-discovered Triad sends a demonic spy and assassin after Piper and her sisters -- a demon known as Belthazor, who infiltrates their lives disguised as the human Assistant District Attorney, Cole Turner ("The Honeymoon's Over"). Piper and her sisters eventually learn that their true enemy is a powerful demon known as The Source of All Evil and ruler of the demonic Underworld, desiring their lives, powers and their coveted Book of Shadows. Cole's love for Phoebe overwhelms his demonic nature, and Phoebe fakes vanquishing Cole after Prue and Piper enlist the help of demonic bounty hunters to kill him. Phoebe eventually tells Leo, Piper and Prue (in that order) that she let Cole go, much to their chagrin.
After they foiled a warlock's plans to destroy all whitelighters, the Elders finally allowed Piper and Leo to marry. The ceremony was conducted by Grams at Halliwell Manor (after three attempts). Prue and Phoebe served as bridesmaids. Also attending were Darryl Morris, Cole and her parents. ("Just Harried"). In the season finale the sisters are attacked by Shax leaving Piper and Prue left for dead("All Hell Breaks Loose").
The fourth season begins with the revelation that Prue has died after Leo was only able to heal Piper. During her funeral Piper and Phoebe discover the existence of their baby half-sister, Paige Matthews. With the addition of another younger sister Piper finds herself taking on the mantle as eldest sister and the lead witch. In balancing this new role and grieving for Prue, Piper is uncharacteristically cold towards Paige, finding it hard to accept her as a sister, however the two soon bond and grow close when trying to save Phoebe from her marriage to Cole, who had been possessed by the Source after the sisters seemingly vanquished him. Piper initially doesn't believe Paige's warnings that Cole has turned evil again. However, Piper grows suspicious at Cole's reluctance to let Phoebe save Paige from being turned into a vampire, as well as his refusal to let Paige or Leo orb to their new apartment. She suspects that Cole is at the very least working with demons again. When Phoebe briefly joins Cole as his queen, Piper takes it particularly hard. Believing that she inherited Prue's responsibility to protect her younger sisters, she briefly feels like a failure.
After vanquishing The Source of All Evil the Charmed Ones are told they have fulfilled their destiny and offered the opportunity to give up their magical lives in exchange for normality — no magic, no warlocks, no demons, and even no Elders ("Witch Way Now?"). They decline the offer, and Piper learns that she is pregnant with her first child.
During Season Five, Piper deals with the growing powers of her unborn child, and is diagnosed with toxemia, during her third trimester ("The Day the Magic Died") as a result of the stress of battling demons and warlocks. The family decides to have the baby at home when it's apparent that the baby has developed massive powers from the womb. Her baby is delivered by Phoebe and Paige, but the family are surprised that the baby is a boy, and not the little girl Piper met during her visit to the future ("Morality Bites"). Piper names the baby Wyatt Matthew Halliwell, after Leo and Paige who worked tirelessly to protect him. They also discover Wyatt is the most powerful magical child in history. Since he is the long-prophesied, twice-blessed child born on the Wiccan Sabbath, he is hunted by demons from as soon as he is born. Piper and Phoebe conduct a mass-vanquishing of demons in the Demonic Market, prompting powerful demons to place a law preventing any demon or warlock from hunting Wyatt.
During the season finale, Piper and her sisters meet Chris Perry, a Whitelighter. He appears from the future to aid them in their defeat of the ancient Titans who, after being release, destroy nearly all of the Elders, with Leo able to rescue and protect the surviving ones. Leo transforms Piper, Phoebe and Paige into the Goddesses of Earth, Love, and War, respectively, with the aim of giving them enough power to destroy the Titans("Oh My Goddess, Part 1"). While Phoebe and Paige struggle to control their power, Piper remains calm and serene. Indeed, Leo turned her into the Goddess of Earth because she'd always wanted as normal a life as possible. However, angered by Leo's impending ascension to become an Elder she uses her anger to open a hole in the ground and bury the Titans. While Phoebe and Paige relinquish their Goddess powers, Piper unleashes her rage on San Francisco, stirring up a massive thunderstorm. She confronts Leo in the heavens and accuses him of abandoning their family. Leo attempts to heal her pain, but rather traps her pain deep inside of her and causes her to become light-hearted and "chipper" ("Oh My Goddess, Part 2").
Chris becomes the girls' new Whitelighter as Leo struggles to leave the family to become a full-time Elder, and Piper attempts to adjust to life as a single mother and begins dating mortal suitors("Valhalley of the Dolls (Part 1)"). Chris reveals that he has returned to the future to protect Wyatt from a dangerous evil force that will not reveal itself for a full year, a mission complicated by Leo's intense mistrust of him. Piper throws herself into protecting Wyatt, and decides to swear off men as she decides that Wyatt is the only important male in her life. ("Prince Charmed"). Chris also reveals that Wyatt became a powerful force of evil in the future, and he wants to find out what turned him evil.
Piper and Leo reunited after they are trapped in the Ghostly Plane by a Darklighter. After Leo is shot by the Darklighter's arrow, and is close to death he tells Piper that he loves her, and they sleep together. In the morning, they are rescued by Phoebe and Paige. Leo is persuaded by his mentor Gideon to return to the Elders permanently, yet he does not know that Piper is pregnant with their second child ("The Courtship of Wyatt's Father"). She decides to abstain from telling Leo the truth, as leaving their family was hard enough the first time around.
It is revealed that Chris is really Piper's second child, Chris Halliwell. The entire family work even harder to aid Chris in saving Wyatt. Piper is persuaded to live in Magic School with Wyatt. Although Chris is half-Whitelighter, he does not protect himself from the womb as did unborn Wyatt. Magic School is protected from evil and prevents death from occurring in the halls, and they are safe. Eventually, the sisters and Leo discover that Gideon is actually after Wyatt in a twisted scheme to save what he considers the greater good. In future Chris' timeline, Gideon took Wyatt away for several weeks while trying to kill him. While Wyatt was able to fend him off, the shock to his system turned him evil--a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Piper goes into labor during the season finale ("It's a Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad World (Part 2)") but the side effect of Phoebe and Paige's traveling to an evil parallel world to stop Gideon causes everyone in their world, including Piper, to become over-optimistic and happy. She casts a spell on Phoebe and Paige to make them cheery also, infuriating Leo and Chris as they attempt to convince the sisters that Gideon is hunting Wyatt. Gideon kills future Chris, and Piper suffers from internal complications in the hospital. Leo breaks the spell on Phoebe and Paige and kills Gideon--an act of "great evil" that restores the balance between the two worlds. Piper and baby Chris are saved.
Season Seven, with the season opener "A Call to Arms", begins with introduction of the mysterious "Gathering Storm" and this force's manipulation of Leo. Piper tries to help a haunted Leo who killed a fellow Elder, as a result of the demon Barbas convincing Leo he was after his family, just like Gideon. Some months later Piper cannot understand how Leo can make such a tremendous comeback from his grief of killing an innocent Elder, but she is willing to accept Leo back into her life once again. After Leo brings Piper and Phoeb back to life after being killed by a Celerity Demon, he tells her that he is an Avatar, a powerful being who is neither good nor evil. With his Avatar kin, Leo and the sisters create a world of peace, Utopia. However, they soon discover that Utopia comes with a high price--the loss of free will and the ability to feel pain. After Leo sacrifices himself to the Avatars, Piper and her sisters figure out what is happening. With the help of Zankou, a powerful demon imprisoned years ago by the Source, they force the Avatars to rewind the world back to what it was.
Leo is punished by the Elders for becoming an Avatar, and he is once again taken away from his family to endure a trial. He has to determine if his destiny lies with his family or the other Elders. In the 150th episode, "The Seven Year Witch" Piper receives help in the form of Phoebe's past love, Cole. The Elders trick Leo into joining them, but Cole helps her and Leo get back together for good. In the process, Leo clips his wings and becomes a mortal. Soon, Zankou resurfaces, with the intent of taking over the Underworld and destroying the Charmed Ones.
Piper and her sisters destroy Zankou and the Nexus in the season seven finale "Something Wicca This Way Goes" after having lost their manor and The Book of Shadows. Once they have destroyed Zankou the mortal world, the underworld and the Elders believe Piper and her sisters to be dead. It is revealed they faked their own deaths in order to live normal lives.
In Season Eight Piper glamours into Jenny Bennett, with only her loved ones being able to see her as she was. However, Piper's new look matches someone else who was wrongly wanted for murder as featured in the episode "Run Piper, Run". After clearing her look-alike’s name Piper has to change her look and get a new name, Jamie Bennett. While in disguise, Piper and her sisters take on a protégé, Billie Jenkins. While Billie helps with their demonic load, eventually Piper and her sisters realize that hiding their true selves is a mistake. After a plot that involves the Department of Homeland Security to explain her sudden return from the grave, Piper returned to her real name and old life in the aptly titled episode "Rewitched".
Despite having been through hell and back in their relationship, Leo finds it hard to adapt to being a mortal married to one of the most powerful witches in history. Even going to a magical marriage counselor doesn't turn out as well as they had hoped. However the two soon work out their problems.
In the tenth episode of the final season, "Vaya Con Leos", the Angel of Death comes to Piper to warn her that Leo's time is coming. While Piper figures out a way to prevent Leo's death an Angel of Destiny tells Piper and her sisters that they have another battle to fight and Leo's death would have motivated them, and specifically Piper, to fight it. Piper reasons that losing Leo with his return hanging on her success is a much greater motivator than just losing him. The bargain struck, the Angel of Destiny vanishes, taking the frozen Leo with her. Simultaneously, Billie is searching for her elder sister Christy Jenkins, who was abducted by demons 15 years earlier. However, no one knows that Christy has been turned evil as a result of her sense of morality being severely warped, and she is actually working hand in glove with the Triad in an effort to kill the Charmed Ones.
Piper starts to film everything that goes on in the house so when Leo comes back, he can watch what he missed. She also tries to avoid demon fighting, but is thrown back into it when the Triad resurfaces. Piper and her sisters kill the Triad, but to their surprise Leo doesn't come back. Meanwhile, Christy convinces Billie that Piper and her sisters are about to be corrupted by their power and therefore must die. Believing that the Jenkinses are the threat they have to face, Piper is the most determined to take the battle on. As the Jenkinses (with the behind-the-scenes help of the Triad) turn the magical community against the Halliwells, Piper escapes with her sisters to the Underworld. In the next-to-last episode of the final season, Piper and her sisters team up with two demons and summon the Hollow. They then use their new powers to vanqish the spirit-form remains of the Triad before confronting the Jenkinses, who have also taken in the Hollow. The two sets of sisters are evenly matched since the Jenkinses took Wyatt's powers, resulting in the destruction of the manor and the deaths of Phoebe, Paige and Christy. Piper finds Billie alive in the wreckage and savagely beats her, but has to be restrained by Leo, who was returned by Destiny.
The series finale, "Forever Charmed" shows Leo and Piper going to Phoebe's condo before going to Victor's apartment to get Wyatt and Chris. Coop materializes there and is stunned to find that Phoebe is dead. Piper, however, is determined to get her sisters back, reasoning that they've conquered death before. She borrows Coop's ring, and through time travel summons her mother and Grams. They manage to send away the Hollow and prevent the deaths of Phoebe, Paige and Christy. However, with Christy alive, Leo is removed once more. Meanwhile, Billie realizes that the Triad has manipulated her, and convinces the sisters to trust her again. Using Billie's projection power, the Charmed Ones go back in time and vanquish the Triad and Christy. Leo is returned, and the sisters, Grams, Patty, Victor, Wyatt, Chris, Leo and Coop rejoice in their final victory.
With the destruction of all the strong demons of the past, the sisters can finally have normal lives. Piper and Leo's marriage returns to peace and they soon have a third child, Melinda. Piper also sells P3 and opens a restaurant. The story ends with an elderly Piper reading the events of the past from the Book of Shadows to her granddaughter. After Piper leaves with Leo to rest, more children enter the manor and we get to know them as more of Piper's grandchildren. Piper's granddaughter Prudence closes the door with her telekinetic powers, ending the story of Piper Halliwell and the Charmed Ones.
Piper's initial ability, inherited from her mother, was to freeze objects; this was initially interpretted as freezing time, however it later became clear she was slowing down molecules to the point of stasis. The ability causes all persons (except good witches) and objects to freeze in motion. Her power is limited in ways as she cannot use it against good witches and certain types of demons such as Furies and ghosts. Others would fight through her freezes or be simply slowed down.
Early on Piper's power was triggered by fear or panic but she eventually learned to freeze things at will. Once she learned to control her powers it was activated by hand gestures, meaning she couldn't use her ability if her hands were restrained. She later learned to freeze objects with just one hand (and on one occasion, she used a costume prop wand). At first, she simply froze everything in her immediate vicinity, later learning to selectively freeze certain objects. Indoors, her powers only worked on objects in the room she was in. She also had no control over the length of time the effects would last.
Later on, Piper was able to selectively choose what she wanted to freeze, whether it be a single object or a select group people for example only the innoncents. As she gained more control she was able to hold them frozen for a longer period of time and unfreeze specific objects at will, such as unfreezing a demon's head in order to interrogate them.
Later, Piper gained the power to cause things to explode by speeding up molecular movement instead of slowing them down. This power was usually triggered by anger, frustration or surprise. Since both powers depended on gesturing with her hands, Piper was apprehensive about using them at first, not certain whether she would freeze something or blow it up. This power could also be used on mystical discharges, such as fire balls, and meant she was able to harm and sometimes kill demons using simply her powers.
Piper's powers are linked to her emotions intimately. In season five, she began losing control over her powers when she and Leo were having marital problems she went to the extent of blowing up an entire wall. As with her freezing power she had to use both hands for her powers to work, but she later learned to use just one hand.
Unlike Prue's telekinetic abilities, the limits on Piper's freezing power are not determined by an object's mass. Even relatively new to her powers, she once froze a moving truck to prevent it from hitting a baby's carriage. It is unclear what Piper's limits were out of doors, but in a magical trip to the future, she once froze an entire city block, but not objects/people in a nearby building.
Like the other Charmed Ones, Piper can also brew magical potions and recite/write spells. She is best at making potions, as predicted by Grams in 1997 before she died from a heart attack, because Piper is a gifted and university-trained chef. In contrast with Phoebe and Prue, Piper has never been interested in learning conventional means of fighting, such as martial arts kicks and punches, preferring to rely on her powers and rightly so since use of either of her abilities in an confrontation would result in an favorable outcome.
Piper has dated a ghost, a banker, a construction worker, a grad student, a governor, a fireman, a warlock, and her whitelighter (and eventually her husband) Leo Wyatt. They broke up for some time because their relationship could not work due to their conflicting magical destinies. Piper then sought to have a normal relationship with a mortal, her next door neighbor Dan Gordon, before reuniting with Leo. Throughout their relationship, Dan remained oblivious to the fact that Piper was a witch.
Piper and Leo still had to deal with the consequences of their forbidden romance after getting back together. When the Elders issued an ultimatum about Piper and Leo's relationship, Leo proposed to Piper who, after some hesitation, accepted. They tried to marry in secret, but the Elders were told of their plans after Cole exposed them to the magical community. As a result of this, during the wedding ceremony (with Prue and Phoebe as bridesmaids and Grams as the High Priestess) the Elders painfully orbed Leo away. When the Elders forbade Piper from ever seeing Leo again, Piper decided to go on strike and not be a witch anymore. Once she realized that she still had a job to do and she still had to save innocents despite her anger over the Elders' decision to forbid her from being with Leo, the Elders sent Leo back. The Elders said that Piper showed great courage in protecting innocents even when she had the love of her life taken away. The Elders however, allowed Piper and Leo to continue seeing each other on the condition that their relationship would not interfere with their jobs.
Leo and Piper were finally married by the ghost of her grandmother, Penny, in a special ceremony. The sisters' father, Victor, Phoebe's half-demon boyfriend Cole and Detective Darryl Morris attended the wedding. The Elders sent their mother, Patty, as a gift for the day to attend the wedding. Piper and Leo's marriage produced two children; Wyatt Matthew Halliwell and Christopher Perry Halliwell.
This was not to be the end of their struggles to have a relationship and have a magical life as well. Leo had to leave Piper and his son for a short time to be an Elder, but worked around it. After Leo killed an Elder, Gideon, who was trying to kill his son, Wyatt, he began to see floating, green heads (the Avatars) and then, unfortunately for him, he was tricked by the Demon of Fear into killing another Elder named Zola.
Leo tried to get over this but was ultimately turned into an Avatar who unwittingly corrupted the girls to create Utopia, but this went wrong. After this is Season 8 (Veya Con Leo's), when Piper learns that the Angel of Death was after Leo, and so in an attempt to stop Death taking him, a spell was cast and every man in the world was turned into Leo. But this backfired and Piper had to call down the Angel Of Destiny who said that she would take Leo, and when the Ultimate Battle had been fought, Leo would be returned to her. So with the help of a demon, Leo was frozen and taken from Piper, but he is later returned to her after the final battle.

Piper and Leo faced a lot of obstacles along the way (ex: Elders forbidding their relationship, Angel of Destiny taking Leo, Prue crashing their wedding) and always wondered if they were meant to be together. They attempt marriage counseling to fix their marital problems (Season 5x18, Season 8x07). They separate during Season 6 when Leo becomes a full-time Elder. In Season 7, Leo becomes obsessed with defending his family from harm, and becomes an Avatar in the process.

Piper originally worked as an accountant for a small bank in San Francisco before quitting her job to pursue her dream of being a professional chef. A few months later, Piper landed a job as a new chef under the tutelage of Chef Moore at a high quality restaurant Quake. Only a week or two pass before Piper's boss leaves Quake and she is promptly promoted to restaurant manager, a job that has her constantly working double shifts and makes her unhappy.
After quitting Quake, Piper opens P3, a nightclub named as a tribute to the Power of Three and Prue, Piper, and Phoebe. P3 struggles at first until it manages to land Dishwalla. The band's manager is in league with Masselin, a demon who feeds off of souls he keeps trapped inside of him. The Charmed Ones defeat Masselin and the manager is arrested on kidnapping charges, but P3 is put on the map.
P3 becomes one of the hottest clubs on the Bay Area scene; the sisters often hang out there after they vanquish demons and warlocks. It closes briefly after Prue's death, though it reopens when Piper moves on and accepts Paige as her sister. P3 is open for at least 7 years, though in the series finale Piper finally becomes a chef in her own restaurant, as she'd always dreamed. Not much is said about what happened to P3 after Piper becomes a chef again.
