To the Warren Born is a six-page short story, included in Charmed Comics Volume 1. It centers on Melinda Warren's mother Charlotte while pregnant and gives certain hints towards Season 9's second story arc.
A young woman searches through the woods looking for someone to help her with her problem. She says that she is looking for a woman that the people call a "witch" but she just assumed that that was one of the many lies about her. The woman finds the house and approaches the door. She knocks and introduces herself as Charlotte Warren and a voice replies from inside. Charlotte enters and finds herself in the middle of a circle with a pentagram in the center. The voice tells her not to move from the circle, for both of their safety. The unseen voice guesses correctly as to why Charlotte is there and Charlotte asks if she has the "gift of sight". The voice replies with, "when needed..." and suddenly a hand becomes visible and starts adding ingredients to a bubbling cauldron. The voice asks Charlotte what "moves [her] to...seek my assistance" and Charlotte explains that it is of a personal matter and that she must know exactly who she is talking to before divulging any more information. Charlotte asks if the unseen witch is Isabel and the voice confirms it. Out of the shadows, Isabel emerges and it's discovered that it really is Neena. Isabel asks Charlotte to tell her about the father of her unborn child. Charlotte recalls that his name was Lawrence Cutler and that she loved him from the first time she heard his name. When she discovered that she was pregnant Charlotte ran to tell Lawrence the news but he was gone. And for some reason, Charlotte knew he was not going to return. Isabel finally allows Charlotte to enter further into the room and explains that it wasn't Charlotte who knew that Lawrence wasn't coming back, it was her unborn daughter who foresaw the truth. Isabel adds a few red flowers (possibly roses) to the cauldron and explains that she can not fix the potion that Charlotte wanted (presumably to abort the pregnancy). Charlotte is surprised by this but Isabel explains that she will still help. Isabel picks up a jewelry box and places a talisman into the cauldron. She pulls it out and hands it to Charlotte; the talisman is in the shape of the triquetra and Isabel tells Charlotte that it will lead her to a woman in Virginia. Isabel warns Charlotte that the birth of her baby is vitally important for the future of "us all".
