The relationship between a witch and a whitelighter was originally forbidden by the Elders. For this reason, only a small number of Whitelighter-Witches exist, most of which are born within the Warren line of witches.
The first of this species is seen in the series was Paige Matthews, the secret daughter of Patty Halliwell and Sam Wilder. To keep Paige's birth secret from the Elders, the couple brought her to a church, where a nun named Sister Agnes gave her to Mr. and Mrs. Matthews to be raised.
The second was Wyatt Halliwell, who was born from the union of Piper Halliwell and her whitelighter Leo Wyatt. He was ultimately one of the most powerful beings in existence due to being the Twice-Blessed Child.
The two had a second son about a year afterward; Chris, who was also half-whitelighter but not as powerful. Years later, Piper and Leo had a third child together, Melinda Halliwell, who was made into a whitelighter-witch by The Elders in an attempt to create more Twice-Blessed children.

Hybrid Powers Edit
