Family History is the 8th and final story in The Warren Witches. It is written by Laura J. Burns.


For a complete plot of Family History, go here.

The sisters are enjoying a relaxing weekend when an ancient demoness, Astarte, runs in on them and starts changing their timeline. At first they think that a simple Power of Three spell will fix it, but they were wrong: Astarte was present in Melinda Warren, Brianna, P. Baxter, Grams, their own time as well as Posie Halliwell's time. Now they will have to call upon the magic of this entire lineage to destroy this demoness before they are themselves destroyed.




  • Patty Halliwell: The Charmed Ones' mother. She had the power of Molecular Immobilization. She and her mother were targeted by Astarte.
  • Wyatt Halliwell: Piper and Leo's firstborn son. He has powers beyond everyone's comprehension. He was temporarily erased from existence due to Astarte's disturbance to the timeline.
  • P. Baxter: The Charmed Ones' great-grandmother. She had the power of Molecular Deceleration. She was targeted by Astarte.
  • P. Bowen: The Charmed Ones' great-great aunt, and Prue's past life with the power of Cryokinesis. She has a hard time pronouncing Astarte's name properly.
  • Brianna: The Warren witch who defeated Gabriel Statler during the Crimean War. Her power was Advanced Telekinesis. She is completely disinterested in helping her family vanquish the demon and prefers to tend to the paintings in her museum.
  • Penny Halliwell: The Charmed Ones' grandmother with the power of Telekinesis. She and her daughter were targeted by Astarte.
  • Melinda Warren: The Charmed Ones' ancestor. She possessed the three original powers that passed on to the Charmed Ones: Telekinesis, Molecular Immobilization, and Premonition. Being at a very young age, Melinda is timid and doesn't dare to face a demon.
  • Astarte: A powerful demon who must be vanquished in all timelines at once. She was summoned by P. Russell, who wanted to use her power for her own interests, but the demon killed her and vowed to end her entire family line.
  • Posie: Paige's granddaughter from the future. Her mother was injured and she is to help vanquish the demon.
  • Charlotte Warren: Melinda's mother. She teaches her daughter to be brave.


  • Gabriel Statler: The Lord of War who started the Crimean war and was defeated by Brianna Warren.
  • Pandora: Paige's future daughter and Posie's mother. She was injured and eventually succumbed to her injuries.
  • P. Russell: Phoebe Halliwell's past life incarnation. She awoke the demon Astarte and got her entire family in danger in the process. The demon then killed her. By vanquishing the demon, however, the timeline was restored and Russell returned to life.

Magical Notes[]

Book of Shadows[]


Safety Spell[]

When in the circle that is home,
Safety's gone in evil's roam,
Rid all beings from these walls,
Save us sisters three.
Now heed our call.

Protection Spell Against Astarte[]

Spread a mixture of sage and apples around the outside of a residence.

For every witch, in every hour,
Send us now the greatest power.
Brick and mortar, wood and stone,
Protect our center, protect our home.

To Call Upon the Warren Line[]

A tektite crystal is needed.

I call forth from time and space
Women from the Warren line,
Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends,
Our family's spirit without end,
To gather now in this sacred place
To help bring this demon to disgrace.

To Vanquish Astarte[]

A potion made with oak bark is to be thrown the same time the spell is cast.

Earth, water, fire, air,
See Astarte standing there.
Draw our power to do your work,
Vanquish her forever from this earth.

To Cloak Brianna's Paintings[]

Oils and canvas, masterpieces
Hide yourselves from witch's eyes.
Only when Brianna has spoken
May you reveal yourselves and return her prize.

To Vanquish Astarte[]

(Revised Version)
Earth, water, fire, air,
See Astarte standing there.
Heed our will, and not our words,
Her name ignored, her essence heard.
Draw our power to do your work,
Vanquish her forever from this earth.
