Paige Matthews (b. August 2, 1977) was the half-whitelighter daughter of Sam Wilder and Patty Halliwell, and younger half-sister to Prue, Piper and Phoebe Halliwell. Fearing repercussions for their tryst, Sam and Patty gave Paige up for adoption, and she was taken in by Matthews and his wife. In 1994, her adoptive parents died in a motoring accident, Paige herself being saved by her otherwise latent orbing power.
Searching for her biological parents, Paige came to suspect that Patty Halliwell was her mother and that the Halliwell sisters were her half-siblings, though she dismissed this because of Patty's death in 1978. After Prue's death, Paige suspicions were confirmed, and she joined her half-sisters and reconstituted the Power of Three. Paige resigned from South Bay Social Services in order to focus on witchcraft, and later became headmistress of Magic School for several months to prevent the Elders from closing it. Though she handed the job over to her brother-in-law, Paige went on to work there as a consultant and recruiter for new students, as well as a visiting lecturer on magic.
Her duties as a whitelighter led her to meet Henry Mitchell, with whom she fell in love and married. The two had twins, named Kat and Tamora, and took in the son of Christopher Mercer, naming him Henry Jr.
- "Well, that's how they appeared, with you in their arms! I was stunned. I - I didn't know what to think. They said that you were in great danger, that they had no other choice but to give you up, to protect you. [...] They asked me to find you a good home, a safe home, and to keep their secret... until you came looking."
Paige was born on August 2, 1977 to Sam Wilder and Patty Halliwell. Due to the potential ramifications of a relationship between a whitelighter and his witch charge, Penny Halliwell persuaded the two to give the baby up, fearing that Prue, Piper and Phoebe would be denied their powers should the forbidden relationship be made apparent. However, Sam's reason for wanting to give Paige up was that he wanted her to have a normal life away from magic and demons that her half-sisters would later be exposed to.
Sam orbed himself, Patty and their baby to a church nearby, where they gave her to Agnes, asking her to find a good home for her, as well as to keep their secret until the day Paige returned seeking the truth. They also asked that her name begin with the letter "P", as part of the Halliwell naming tradition.
