- "I see the future. Many more generations of my beautiful daughters. I see my dreams fulfilled."
Melinda Warren (October 31, 1670—1692) was a witch considered to be the beginning of the Warren line. She was born as the illegitimate child of Lawrence Cutler and Charlotte Warren and was delivered by Prue, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell, who had been sent from the future by the Elders.
Thanks to Melinda, White Magic flourished in the New World. She moved from Virginia to Salem, Massachusetts, where she worked with Thaddeus Marks during the witch trials to provide shelter and protection for witches. She was betrayed by her lover Matthew Tate and burned at the stake, where she prophecied the arrival of the Charmed Ones. Her daughter, Prudence, was sent with a friend to Boston for her protection.
