Pamela Bousquet was a Warren witch of the 18th century. She is an ancestor of the Charmed Ones. She is described as having blonde hair, green eyes, and being very pretty. She only appears in Seasons of the Witch Vol. 1, in the Samhain section.
In the 18th century, Pamela was target to a demon named Qalmor. He had the power to absorb the powers and life forces of his targets, and had collected powers of over 100 witches, making him too powerful for Pamela by the time he came for her. In an effort to protect herself, she cast a love spell on him, and, eventually, fell in love with him herself. They married in France, and remained very happy for ten years until her death during the French Revolution. Following her death, Qalmor went into hiding, and chose to never kill good witches ever again. Before her death, Pamela transferred her powers into her pendant to keep the love spell intact in hopes of protecting future witches. Pamela was able to feel Qalmor from the afterlife because of the spell.
On Samhain, 2001, Pamela sensed a grave danger coming her husband's way. When Phoebe, Piper and Paige cast a spell to communicate with one of their ancestors, Pamela seized the opportunity to return to the land of the living by possessing Phoebe. She was hoping to channel the powers in her pendant to free Qalmor from her love spell so that he would be able to defend himself when the comes. When her descendants refused to help her, she set off to do it herself, not caring about the consequences of releasing Qalmor.
The Master captured her and Phoebe and held them hostage to draw Qalmor out of hiding, then smashed Pamela's pendant to destroy the spell and Pamela's magic. Once freed from the spell, Qalmor strangled Phoebe in a rage, thinking Pamela never loved him. Pamela convinced him that her love for him was real, and Qalmor sacrificed himself for the greater good. Though heartbroken, Pamela returned to the Beyond knowing their love was genuine.

Notes and TriviaEdit
Her parents are not mentioned in the novel, however, based on her history certain things could be assumed.
- Based on her last name, it is likely her mother married a Frenchman, which would support her being in France during the time of the revolution.
- Phoebe repeatedly refers to her as an 'ancestor' and not an aunt. Where this would place her in the family tree is unknown, especially since Pamela did not have any children.
