Phoebe is fairly outspoken and bubbly, and is perhaps the most rebellious of the original three Charmed Ones. Phoebe, being the youngest, was often treated as the baby and her older sisters had a tendency to coddle and protect her, a trait which Piper continued as they grew up, which Prue began to resent. Even before her powers were reawaken, Phoebe had a tendency to be very sensitive to others’ feelings, and she took criticisms hard, though she didn’t often show it outwardly. She is extremely compassionate and empathic, and is good at putting herself in someone else’s shoes, which led her to pursue a degree in psychology and later become a successful and insightful advice columnist.
Phoebe is a huge flirt, and when she meets an attractive man, she has a tendency to become somewhat tongue-tied and giggly at first. She is unfailingly loyal to her family, particularly her sisters, and is at times distrustful of men, thanks to her experience of marrying an actual demon. Being the only one of the sisters to be born in the Halliwell Manor, directly above the Nexus, Phoebe is more susceptible to being influenced by evil than most of her family, and therefore must carefully balance her emotions to prevent resentment from festering and leading her to become bitter. She is extremely courageous and unafraid of trying new things; when it became apparent that her ability would be the least active of her sisters, she took self defense and karate lessons so that she could still contribute to fighting evil in ways aside from simply having visions.
After Prue’s death and the discovery of Paige, Phoebe was the first to truly accept Paige into the Halliwell manor, despite Paige’s distrust of Cole. She is very open and honest, but doesn’t like to hurt people’s feelings, and really tries to soften bad news whenever possible. Of the Halliwells, she is most like their Grandmother in personality. Pheebs is extremely creative and has the best memory of the sisters, and is the most adept at recalling previously used or read spells/information and converting them into more powerful spells. While not very book-smart, she is full of street smarts and can pick locks, pockets, and change the tires of a car. Phoebe is far from being the damsel in distress and is fiercely independent, but will come to the aid of her sisters – or an Innocent – at a moment’s notice if she needs to.
Born into a magical family, Phoebe was the third part of a prophecized set of girls known as the Charmed Ones. Her powers, however, were bound along with those of her sisters by her grandmother when they were very young. After high school, she and her oldest sister, Prue (Piper being the middle) moved into an apartment together. While there, Prue fell in love with and became engaged to a man named Roger. Meanwhile, Roger hit on Phoebe at her job, and sent her flowers. When Prue found out about the flowers, she accused Phoebe of hitting on Roger. Upset, Phoebe left San Francisco and moved to New York.
Not long after, the girls' grandmother, Penny, was about to make the binding of their powers permanent, when she died very suddenly. Afterwards, Phoebe returned to the the family home, Halliwell Manor, where her sisters lived, having lost her job and apartment in New York, but unwilling to tell the others. The night she returned, the three began to accidentially awaken their dormant powers, and discovered that they were, in fact, the Charmed Ones.
As the youngest of the sisters, Phoebe was often thought by forces of good and evil to be the weakest of the Charmed Ones, and she took steps. Since her first power - that of premonition - was not something she could use to actively fight demons, she began to learn martial arts. Later, her powers developed, revealing her to have the ability to levitate, and then to be empathic. As an empath, she could use some opponents' abilities against them, reflecting their powers.
Three years after they became the Charmed Ones, Prue was killed, and Paige came into the picture. This pushed Phoebe out of the role of being the youngest sister, into that of the middle, and thus, the peacemaker. This caused her to mellow somewhat, though life still was not kind to her. Her love life was the craziest out of all the sisters. Where her sister Piper married an angel . . . Phoebe married a genuine demon, and in fact became Queen of the Underworld. Thanks to the help of Paige and Piper, Phoebe managed to break out of Cole/Belthazor's hold, and ended up vanquishing him. Twice.
During this time, Piper becomes pregnant twice. The first time, she has a son whom she names Wyatt. The second time, her son is not yet born, but Phoebe discovers that the future version of that son, Chris, has been masquerading as the Charmed Ones' whitelighter for some time, leading to more issues for all of the Halliwells.
