"Power is good. I like power."
—Paige as the Goddess of War[src]

The Goddess of War is a title originally held by Athena in ancient Greece. She wielded a powerful trident capable of shooting lightning.


In 2003, the Charmed Ones were turned into Greek goddesses to stop the unleashed Titans. Paige Matthews was turned into the Goddess of War, Phoebe was turned into the Goddess of Love and Piper was turned into the Goddess of Earth.[1] Paige's first act was to try recruiting an army of demons to worship her and fight the Titans with. However, Piper quickly snapped her to her senses.

Leo Wyatt later told Paige that he had turned her into a Warrior goddess because she constantly sought to become a more powerful witch, without letting the power consume her. Paige gave up her powers after the Titans were vanquished. Although she seemed to enjoy being a goddess at first, by the end she gladly relinquished her powers when Leo called them back.[2]
