Benjamin Montana was a powerful witch and the patriarch of the Montana Family, who had been a participant in a longtime feud with the Callaway Family. He was the husband of Rosaline Montana and father of Steve and Richard Montana.



When Paige Matthews got involved in the feud between the families, she was struck by a plasma ball, so Richard brought her inside his house. Benjamin was distrustful of Paige and wanted her to leave, though his son insisted she was there to help. Moments later, the spirit of Olivia revealed herself to Benjamin in his office and killed him as part of her to reignite the feud.

Benjamin as a spirit.

Months later, Paige summoned Benjamin along with other relatives to stage an intervention for Richard, as they all believed that Richard had a problem with magic. When Richard refused to listen, the spirits left. Paige later asked Benjamin to help stop Jinny by possessing her.
