Charmed falls among the TV shows with an intriguing, captivating, and packed plot. Unfortunately, some fans only watch the series lightly without understanding the need to get deeper into the story to know what is happening. The four powerful sisters represent more than you see on your screen. They all have a specific element that they represent throughout the show using their powers and abilities. The information below will show you these key characters and the element each represents as the series proceeds.
Prue Represents Fire
It’s pretty apparent that Prue is above all, considering that she’s the firstborn of the Halliwell sisters. By now, you know that fire is a good servant but a bad master, a fact that Brad Kern portrayed through Prue. The show’s plot introduces Prue as a born leader and warrior, but one who can sometimes be stubbornly impulsive. The element fire in Charmed depicts strong will, the ability to deal with current issues, creation and destruction, and pain and healing.
All these are the characteristics you’ll see in Prue. In most cases, she’s in charge and the first to hit back. Her responsibility towards the family is evident when she sacrifices a lot to remain loyal and protective against her family. She also gives up her life to save her siblings.
Phoebe Represents Water
The main idea behind matching Phoebe with water is based on her role as a goddess who survives one of the most traumatizing love stories in the entire series. Water flows in different regions, but it takes the same form regardless of whether the area is rocky, steep, shallow, or deep. Phoebe is the youngest of the three Halliwell sisters, but she evolves into a supportive sister.
The fact that Phoebe transformed into a mermaid in one of the episodes amplifies her position as a water representative. Water balances everything around it, which Phoebe achieves through empathy because her premonition powers help her sisters find true love.
Piper Represents Earth
The Earth produces everything good, like plants, and is home to almost all living creatures. Piper’s stability helps her care for her siblings, not to mention that she’s the first to become a mother and wife among the Halliwell sisters. Leo chooses Piper to stand in for Mother Earth when there’s a clash with the Titans. All these pointers explain why the filmmakers created Piper to represent the Earth.
Paige Represents Air
Paige Matthews is the half-sister to the Halliwell sisters. She’s the child of the Halliwell sisters’ mother and her secret whitelighter lover, meaning she came into the Halliwell family like air. Additionally, Paige serves more than two masters in her career, just as the air flows freely over different areas. First, she advocates the Magic School saving project and becomes a teacher in the institution. Secondly, she works as a social worker responsible for fighting for victims’ rights in sorry situations.
Charmed aired on global screens for eight seasons, giving global fans an unforgettable entertainment experience. Nevertheless, you should know the underlying stories, such as which elements Prue, Phoebe, Piper, and Paige represent throughout the series. The above information will help you to follow the show with the utmost comprehension.
