Phoebe Halliwell is the youngest child of Victor Bennett and Patty Halliwell. Phoebe was the carefree spirit who lived in New York before moving back to the Halliwell manor. Upon returning to the manor, Phoebe was on good terms with Piper, but there was mountable tension between herself and Prue. Eventually tensions lightened up some for the eldest and youngest as the season progressed.
Phoebe was the Halliwell who actually activated the powers of the Charmed Ones, after discovering the Book of Shadows in the attic. Readily accepting her powers Phoebe grew into an excellent spell writer, creating potions, and knowing all about the Book of Shadows. Having powers and uniting with her sisters helped to give Phoebe a purpose in life - something she was sorely lacking.
Always wanting an active power but having only the "passive" power of Premonition, Phoebe began to compensate by studying Martial Arts and self-defense. As the seasons progressed, Phoebe's ability to defend herself using Martial Arts became excellent. Becoming a witch helped Phoebe grow as a person and become confident enough in herself that she went back to school to get her degree. She successfully graduated in season three.
She lost her oldest sister, Prue, because of the Source. Phoebe became the middle sister. This meant playing the mediator between Piper and Paige, who differed as much as she and Prue had done. She found how hard it was for Piper to stay neutral and try to keep everything calm. After adjusting to many changes Phoebe married her long-time boyfriend Cole, but later found out he was the source of all evil and was forced to kill him. After the loss of her baby and the stress of a new job, Phoebe's life is finally getting back on track.
