Charmed

"No. It's time you stopped focusing on yourselves and started focusing on Eames. You must prepare yourselves for battle. Mentally, physically, sartorially."
—Natalie guiding the Charmed Ones.[src]

Natalie was a Whitelighter and a good friend of Leo Wyatt. The two were both medics during World War II, serving in the same unit, and became Whitelighters around the same time.

As a Whitelighter, Natalie had a sterling reputation, though she was known as a stickler for the rules and a strong believer on planning attacks in advance. She was also something of a martinet who trained her charges military-style and insisted that they submit their spells to her for approval.

History[]

When the warlock Eames killed one of Natalie's charges, a witch named Vivian, and took her power of deflection, Natalie went to the Charmed Ones for help. She also revealed that the Elders sent her to see if Leo's relationship with Piper was clouding his judgment. She made no secret that she disapproved of their relationship. She also felt that the Charmed Ones were far too reckless, especially considering their calling.

Substitute Whitelighter for the Charmed Ones[]

After their hesitation led to Eames killing a witch, Leo thought that Natalie might be right and asked her to temporarily take over as the Charmed Ones' Whitelighter. The Charmed Ones didn't like Natalie's bossy demeanor and obsession with planning ahead, but went along at Leo's request.

Natalie offered herself as bait to Eames and lured him to the park so they could take away a crossbow he had stolen from a Darklighter. She was certain the plan would work, despite the risks involved. However, her strict conduct and pride in her own plan seemed to be her downfall. The witches thought their defeating Eames was too easy and she marked it off as her plan working, failing to see Eames disguising himself as the crossbow. Once they took him into the manor, he revealed himself and stabbed Natalie with an arrow. He then slowly tortured her to death. Ironically, her death aided the Charmed Ones in vanquishing him. They summoned Leo after she was taken and he orbed them to the Heavens, where they vanquished Eames through their own methods of improvisation.

Physical Appearance[]

Natalie was slightly overweight. She had short red hair that touched the tip of her neck and green eyes. In a matter of fashion, she wore suits to depict her serious personality.

Personality[]

Natalie was known to be a true follower of the rules and no-nonsense type of person. She did not allow her feelings cloud her judgment and would rather sacrifice a witch for the greater good than risk losing more. When Leo felt a witch in pain, Prue figured out it was a trap. Natalie acknowledged the pain herself, but somehow managed to tune it out that she didn't feel her die.

In the end, it was her dedication to following the rules that led to her doom.

Notes and Trivia[]

  • Natalie's stern manner and her tendency to micromanage her charges, as well as the effect it had of annoying the Charmed Ones, could be taken as a precursor to their future in dealing with the Elders.
  • She is the first and the only Whitelighter shown to die from the Darklighter arrow's poison.
  • The character of the reboot Tessa Flores-Cohen was based on Natalie:
    • They were both female Whitelighters who filled in when the Charmed Ones' original Whitelighter couldn’t. They were both strict when they realized where the Charmed Ones stood with their abilities. And they were both killed while fighting alongside the sisters.
