Paige Matthews is the daughter of Patty Halliwell and her Whitelighter lover Sam. Fearing for the safety of their newborn child after they broke the rules of the Elders by falling in love, Patty and Sam decided along with Grams to hide the baby in an orphanage. While growing up Paige was a rebellious child that drank, smoked, and skipped school. It was when her adoptive parents died that Paige sobered up. A powerful essay on her parents death got her into college. She works at South Bay Social Services.
A little over two years ago, Paige decided to look for her birth parents. She gave up her search when she found out that her suspected birth mother, Patty Halliwell, had died a long time ago. Despite this, she always felt somehow connected to the Halliwells. Paige frequented P3 two years ago to be closer to the girls. When Prue died and Piper incited the spell to find a lost witch, Paige magically received the paper showing Prue's death. At the funeral Paige met the sisters, especially Pheobe, who had a premotion Shax would kill her. Little did Paige and the girls know they were really sisters.
At first Paige seemed reluctant to use her powers and being a witch but slowly forming the bond with her sisters is helping her accept her powers. She's now moved into the Halliwell home and is adjusting to her new life. She has now resigned from her job and is a full fledged witch.
