"We're not gonna hurt them are we? Because I promised Ben that I would get his pig back to him tomorrow."
—Tessa to the others.[src]

Tessa was a college student who attended school with Phoebe Halliwell.


In 2000, Tessa and two other girls, Brooke and Andrea, played back a recording of Phoebe chanting a spell to turn three animals into humans. Tessa chose a pig because she had heard they were smart, although the Pig turned out to be rude, slow, constantly eating, and subservient to the Rabbit and the Snake.

Tessa later believed that they had to reverse the spell, but the other two girls refused. The Rabbit and the Snake locked Tessa in a cage in the closet of her dorm room. Eventually, Brooke and Andrea started to believe the animals-turned-humans were dangerous. The Snake bit both Brooke and Andrea in the living room of the Halliwell Manor. After that, the two transfigured animals killed the Pig and stashed his body in the Halliwell Manor pantry. Tessa was eventually discovered and saved by Prue and Phoebe. She told them everything, including what they wanted.



Tessa appeared in a total of 1 episode throughout the course of the series.
