"I know not everything can be perfect. But I have to believe that it can be." - Peyton to Wyatt.
Peyton Julie Halliwell is the youngest daughter and child of the Next Generation of Charmed witches as well as the youngest daughter of Charmed One; Phoebe Halliwell and Coop the cupid. She is the baby sister of PJ and Parker Halliwell and the youngest niece of Prue Trudeau, Piper Halliwell and Paige Matthews.
Destined to hold the next Power of Three, Peyton is seen as being a pretty powerful young witch. Like her cousins, she is seen to have a multitude of powers and much more than her mother and Aunts before her with her being the witch able to see the future as well as her being an Empath, and as a result of her cupid side also holds more of her mother's abilities.
Additionally, Peyton possesses the basic powers of a witch; the ability to cast spells, brew potions, and scry for lost objects or people. She is also able to access the Power of Three Three as well as abilities from the Goddess of Love, making her very protective of her family and especially her sisters.
Peyton is a decedent of the Warren family line of witches dating back to Melinda Warren of the 16th Century.
Unlike most, if not all of her cousins, Peyton was one of the few Halliwell cousins to be foresaw and yet was not at the same time. In 1998, the Halliwell sisters brought Melinda Warren back from the past, and it was during this time that with Phoebe's help she managed to have a premonition, and saw the future daughters of her family, three of which were the daughters of Phoebe.
After discovering her daughters' powers; Phoebe soon had to acknowledge that she could possibly be the mother to the next generation of Charmed Ones. As a result she knew that she may one day have a third child, more than likely a daughter born with the powers of premonition. It was only until her second daughter was almost four that she started thinking about her third child, and then using the list of names as she played around with names for her youngest daughter and finally with Coop had decided on the name Peyton Julie Halliwell.
In July 2012 after celebrating a new book deal, Phoebe and Coop decided to go away for a second honeymoon in Paris, France, with them having left the girls with Billie. It was during the honeymoon that the pair had conceived Peyton. However unlike with her previous two pregnancies, Phoebe never really knew she was pregnant with Peyton but in the months leading up to Peyton's birth Phoebe powers were going into hyper drive especially when it came to affairs with Phoebe becoming even more invested in helping people find love and become more in touch with love leading her on a vision quest to see the people that were most afflicted by love such as Juliet and Aphrodite. It was after being visited by Aphrodite that Phoebe found out she was pregnant.
Early Life Edit
Peyton Halliwell was born February 14, 2013, a month early on valentines day, to Warren witch and Charmed One; Phoebe Halliwell and Coop the cupid at San Francisco, Memorial hospital and was the last of the next generation of Halliwells to be born. Unlike with her sisters, Peyton's birth had been very traumatic for Phoebe as Coop was away on business due to it being valentines day, however things seemed to get worse as Peyton wasn't breathing when she was born, but with due to her powers and her mother's love she managed to come back on her own. On returning home with baby Peyton, everyone became excited with them all adoring her especially Parker whom was happy to not be the little sister anymore, though Kat was unhappy that she could not play with the baby. Like with her sisters, Peyton was given her Wiccaning a month after her birth to celebrate her into the Warren line.
Peyton looks the double of her father, with a slight look of her mother in her.
- Hair: Peyton has long waist length wavy dark brown hair, which she inherited from her father. She tends to style her hair mostly like her mother's in her younger years and has her hair cut to just above her shoulder after her parents die. She also has a time were she dyes her hair blonde for a while.
- Appearance: In terms of appearance, Peyton is a beautiful and attractive young woman with slightly tanned skin, rosy cheeks and a pair of beautiful almond shaped chocolate brown eyes, that she inherited from her mother. She is tall standing at 5'8" with the pair getting their height from her father with long legs, and a slender yet athletic build.
- Wardrobe: Peyton has a very feminine and girly sense of style with her typically choosing to wear semi dark clothing with her usually wearing cute pattern styled clothes and typically wearing dresses, black jackets, cardigans and blouses and skinny jeans. She typically wore her makeup in a clean and simple style, and she rarely wore jewellery, though she would sometimes be seen wearing a ring wrought in an infinity symbol on her left hand, and she was in possession of the her Dad's cupid ring.
Peyton is described to be the girl-next-door, being naturally friendly, humble and is a hardworking student and quick to adjust despite everything she has been through. On her first day at school she is quick to befriend the other new girl; Briana Trudeau, and soon proves to be a charming, fun-loving child with a quick wit and a small rebellious streak. When called for, Peyton also shows herself to be strong-willed, compassionate and a person with a sense of integrity as well as having a knowledge for love. Peyton also demonstrates quick thinking and a strong resolve coming to work together with her family in order to help Parker and comes into her own as a headstrong, loyal and independent young woman.
Peyton also confessed her feelings of embarrassment and frustration of feeling weak and helpless, fervently wishing she could feel less afraid and be able to take care of herself in any situation due to the nature of her powers. However after the death of her parents, she eagerly exchanges her innocent and faint-hearted demeanor for a more capable, tougher and combat-oriented persona, and has shown that although people may lie to her, she has to stay true to herself and becomes a stronger person for it. She is also very open-minded as well as showing the traditional Halliwell aspects of sarcasm and stubbornness. Upon her parents' death, people tried there hardest to be strong even though the forces of evil are trying to manipulate her. Though on seeing herself change from her normally charming personality being replaced with a more callous, petty and vindictive side, even towards her family and friends, she moves past her grief and sadness taking up a protective and peacemaker role between her sisters.
Peyton has a great sense of camaraderie, strong-will, loyalty and has protective instincts that rival that of her mother's instincts, and shows that she can overcome anything and has an especially great mental capacity. She shows to be intelligent and clever, organizing plans of attack and rescue, as well as tactics into love. She does not believe in more expedient manners of action, and shows good judgement is shown when she knew Chris was in trouble, and gave him advice, instead of outright confronting him over his hasty decision. Peyton has grown into a very mature, responsible, strong-willed, self-reliant and action-oriented young girl who'd go to great lengths to protect those she'd care for, willing to even die for her family and fights to defend her friends, as well as the innocent and helpless, and also finds it really hard to lie.

- School Student: Peyton is a student at Washington High school, and has shown to be a very intelligent young student, although not to the same level as her best friend Briana. Occasionally she does struggle especially with Maths causing CJ to mostly drag her into the class. Peyton is very much a well-rounded student with her being on the track team, the soccer team, year book and the school newspaper. Though it is the newspaper that seems to have her heart with her wanting to be like her mother.
- Magic School: Unlike most of the Halliwell cousins, Peyton was also a student of magic school with her wanting to learn everything about magic and her craft. She has taken power classes as well as other types of classes and is said to be the best spell caster in her class. After the death of her parents, she struggled a lot with gaining touch with her wiccan side causing her to be introduced to Magic school as well as her normal school.
Briana is Peyton's maternal cousin through their mothers as well as her best friend. From the moment they met at their first day at Sunnyside Elementary school; Briana and Peyton have practically become inseparable. With their friendship quickly growing close despite the secrets that Briana was hiding from Peyton, which due to her powers almost destroyed her. Briana helped Peyton adapt to her new life as an orphan and the bond between the two became just as close as a sisterly bond despite not having known each other very long.
After it is revealed that Briana is Peyton's cousin, at first Peyton is upset that Briana had lied and deceived her though their relationship didn't stay broken for long with the two quickly becoming friends again after saving one another from a demon attack. This proved that the two had an extremely close relationship as they are both willing to live and forget as long as they stay friends and sisters. It's found that whenever the other is having problems they go to the other in order to deal with everything. With the cousins sharing both a personal and magical connection with one another that seems impossible for most witches though despite this they do have their fights but Peyton always knows that Briana has her back.
PJ is Peyton's oldest sister. Peyton is very close with her oldest sister despite the near five year age difference between the two sisters. On the day of her birth, PJ made a promise to protect her and teach her about being a witch, although like with her other sister, Peyton tends to spend time with her sisters individually with the pair going shopping a lot and PJ telling her stories.
However like most sisters, they do have their moments with Peyton often feeling that PJ often puts too much on Parker. Despite this however Peyton has a unique kindness when it comes to her big sisters, with her helping the older to deal with their parents' death. She was also the one to predict PJ's relationship with Logan Sommers.
Parker is one of Peyton's older sisters. Peyton is very close her older sister, even though there is a four year difference between the two sisters, and as a result of being Switzerland in her family, she is often left playing the sister in the middle although despite all of that she spends a lot of time with Parker individually and is usually one of the first people to be on Parker's side.
Peyton spends a lot of time with Parker learning and teaching about being a witch with Peyton often teaching Parker a thing or two, and the two also spend a lot of time together. Although like most sisters; Parker and Peyton do fight mostly regarding their older sister as well as their parents death. However Peyton knows that Parker will always protect her especially as she knows her older sisters think that she is limited in the power department.
