Creation Edit

Melinda Warren created the Book of Shadows before her death in 1692, but her daughter Prudence gave it continuity. Back them, it was a small book, but it grew in size due to every generation adding more information into it. The book possessed not only information about demons and how to vanquish them, but also information they thought it was necessary to write down.

Passing the Book On Edit

Prudence Warren-Wentworth received the book after her mother, Melinda Warren's, tragic death in 1692. Prudence expanded the book greatly and passed it on to her children, who then passed onto their children and so on. In the 1920s, the book belonged to the Baxter cousins.

The book then received new entries by Penny Halliwell, who claimed that she added a good amount of spells and potions to the book. She also stated that sometimes, the book adds to itself. Penny's daughter, Patty Halliwell, was supposed to inherit the book after Penny's death, however, Patty died before she could inherit the book or add much of anything to it. Eventually, Patty's daughters, Prudence, Piper, Phoebe, and later Paige, discovered the book and started adding to it and using it to vanquish evil.

By 2030, the Book is the first place the Fated Ones look at when they get a magical situation on hands. They also write down any information they think important to register.

The Book's place remains in the attic of the Halliwell Manor, but each one of the Fated Ones is allowed to go and read it anytime they want or they need to.
