Family History is the 8th and final story in The Warren Witches. It is written by Laura J. Burns.


The sisters are enjoying a relaxing weekend when an ancient demoness, Astarte, runs in on them and starts changing their timeline. At first they think that a simple Power of Three spell will fix it, but they were wrong: Astarte was present in Melinda Warren, Brianna, P. Baxter, Grams, their own time as well as Posie Halliwell's time. Now they will have to call upon the magic of this entire lineage to destroy this demoness before they are themselves destroyed.




  • Patty Halliwell: The Charmed Ones' mother.
  • Wyatt Halliwell: Piper and Leo's firstborn son. He has powers beyond everyone's comprehension. He was temporarily erased from existence due to Astarte's disturbance to the timeline.
  • P. Baxter: The Charmed Ones' great-grandmother.
  • P. Bowen: The Charmed Ones' great-great aunt, and Prue's past life.
  • Brianna: The Warren witch who defeated Gabriel Statler during the Crimean War.
  • Penny Halliwell: The Charmed Ones' grandmother.
  • Melinda Warren: The Charmed Ones' ancestor.
  • Astarte: A powerful demon who must be vanquished in all timelines at once.
  • Posie: Paige's granddaughter.
  • Charlotte Warren: Melinda's mother.


  • Gabriel Statler: The Lord of War who started the Crimean war and was defeated by Brianna Warren.
  • Pandora: Paige's future daughter and Posie's mother.
  • P. Russell: Phoebe Halliwell's past life incarnation. She awoke the demon Astarte and got her entire family in danger in the process.

Magical Notes


Safety Spell

When in the circle that is home,
Safety's gone in evil's roam,
Rid all beings from these walls,
Save us sisters three.
Now heed our call.

Protection Spell

For every witch, in every hour,
Send us now the greatest power.
Brick and mortar, wood and stone,
Protect our center, protect our home.

To Call Upon The Warren Line

I call forth from time and space
Women from the Warren line,
Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends,
Our family's spirit without end,
To gather now in this sacred place
To help bring this demon to disgrace.

To Vanquish Astarte

Earth, water, fire, air,
See Astarte standing there.
Draw our power to do your work,
Vanquish her forever from this earth.

To Cloak Brianna's Paintings

Oils and canvas, masterpieces
Hide yourselves from witch's eyes.
Only when Brianna has spoken
May you reveal yourselves and return her prize.

To Vanquish Astarte

(Revised Version)
Earth, water, fire, air,
See Astarte standing there.
Heed our will, and not our words,
Her name ignored, her essence heard.
Draw our power to do your work,
Vanquish her forever from this earth.
