The Callaway Family is a family of upper-level witches that owns an estate in San Francisco. They were in a feud with their neighbors, the Montana Family, for generations, though neither side remembered how it started.


At some point in time, Olivia fell in love with and even got engaged to Richard Montana. However, she was killed by his brother Steve in a crossfire. After her death, the families called a truce. Angered because her death was not avenged, Olivia returned as a spirit and reignited the feud by attacking her own family.

The Charmed Ones became involved due to Paige working for Grandma Callaway as a temp job. They performed a seance with both families, where the truth was revealed. As the families returned to fighting, Olivia possessed Paige and tried to kill Richard so they could be together in death. The families agreed to finally make peace to prevent more deaths and told the sisters where they could find Olivia and Richard. Paige then talked to Olivia and convinced her to move on.[1]
