"Now, she disgraced Gabriel during the Crimean War. She used her power to take away his sword."
—Phoebe, on Brianna's history with Gabriel Statler.[src]

Brianna Bowen was an extremely powerful Warren witch with the power of Advanced Telekinesis, which she channeled through her hands. She was famous for defeating a Lord of War by sending his Crystal Sword hundreds of miles away, which was thought to be an impossible feat.


Early Life


Brianna on the tree

Brianna was born to Bartholomew and Christina Bowen and had three siblings: Laura, Jeffrey, and another whose name is not shown on the Family Tree. At an unknown time, Brianna married a man named Jack and had two children with him. O. Bowen was the first, the second cannot be made out on the Family Tree, but was married and had a child.

The Lord of War

During the Crimean Wars, Brianna confronted Gabriel Statler, a Lord of War, in Sevestopol, Ukraine. Underestimating his foe, he ordered her immediate execution. However, the tremendously powerful Brianna sent his Crystal Sword into the sky and hundreds of miles away. Separated from his sword, the Lord of War lost the source of his power and was quickly defeated.

The Lord of War was reincarnated 140 years later and tried to get revenge and restore his powers by going after Prue Halliwell, the firstborn of the Charmed Ones and Brianna's descendant. However, Prue and her sisters managed to vanquish the Lord with his own sword.[1]

Book of Shadows

Brianna Warren entry

The entry on Brianna in the Book of Shadows.


The second half of the entry.

And thus the Lord of War, his
army invincible, swept through the
Crimea leaving nothing but ashes in his
wake. The cause would have been lost
had it not been for the appearance of an
unlikely savior in the form of a woman.
Her face lined with years of wisdom,
her hands the fountainhead of a power
beyond belief, the Warren witch.
Brianna appeared unarmed before the
conquering army. Underestimating his
foe, the Lord of War ordered her
summary execution, but his plan was
not to be.

Holding aloft her hands the channel
and source of her tremendous energy,
Her mind focused, and her will strong
Brianna did what no man, no army
could: she sent the Crystal Sword of
the Lord of War high into the sky, and
hundreds of miles away.
Separated from the weapon that was
the source of all his power, the Lord of
War was quickly defeated, his armies
crushed and his campaign ruined.
Moreover, the fall from grace of this
Lord of War was made even worse in
the eyes of those who stood in judgment
by the instrument of his destruction, a
simple witch.


  • In the novel, The Warren Witches, Brianna worked as a maid in an art museum, and had a distracting obsession with the priceless paintings and works of art displayed. She was also portrayed to be distant and uncaring even to her own family, having fought Gabriel solely to protect the paintings of the museum from him. Phoebe then magically hid her paintings away from her to force her to focus on destroying the demon Astarte.
  • There is much debate on Brianna's last name, as she is referred to as "The Warren witch" in the Book of Shadows. Yet, her parents and siblings are all named Bowen. The reference in the Book of Shadows is a reference to her lineage, not her last name.


Brianna Bowen has appeared in a total of 1 novel throughout the franchise.
