Billie Jenkins is a witch and the youngest daughter born to Helen and Carl Jenkins. Since both of her parents were mortals, her powers came from her grandmother thus making Helen the carrier of the witch gene.

She has the powers of Telekinesis and Projection. Additionally, she posses the basic powers of a witch; the ability to cast spells, brew potions, and scry for lost objects or people. She is one half of the ultimate powe

Billie: "I don't want to face this one."
Piper: "Face what?"
Billie: "The night my sister was..taken."
— Billie opens up to the sisters.[src]

[1]Billie watches on as her sister is kidnapped.Billie was presumably born around the late eighties to Helen and Carl Jenkins. As a child, she maintained a healthy relationship with her older sister, Christy. However, at the age of five, Billie witnessed her sister get brutally kidnapped by someone who would eventually be revealed to be a demon called Reinhardt. Since this event, her parents never spoke of Christy or the incident ever again, as they thought that it was what was best for Billie.

Her mother told her that Billie inherited magic from her grandmother. As a result of this, it was revealed that The Triad hired Reinhardt to kidnap Christy, knowing that the both of them would eventually grow into powerful witches, believing that fellow sister witches would be enough to vanquish the forthcoming Charmed Ones. [4]

Meeting The Charmed Ones EditEdit

Billie: "Which one are you?"
Paige: "I would be Paige."
— Billie meeting Paige[src]

[2]Billie, with her first demon.Billie found out that she was a witch when she noticed she was able to move different things around with the flick of her hand. She eventually did more research on being a witch and started scrying via a computer in order to find demons in San Francisco. While hunting demons, she dressed in a cheap vinyl outfit[5] in order to hide her appearance. One of her first demons lead her to a movie theater during the day, however unknown to her, she was subconsciously jingling her whitelighter who just happened to be Paige Matthews, a Charmed One. [6] [3]Billie formerly meets Paige, Piper and PhoebeHowever, she and Paige didn't officially meet there. Billie vanquished the demon and ran back out of the cinema, leaving an injured Paige. Paige attempted to scry for her, however she didn't get an exact reading. With the help of "Grams," Paige finally embraced the fact that even though she faked her death, she's still a whitelighter and she can't run away from that or her charge. Piper, Phoebe, and Paige eventually found Billie, who was kidnapped by Paul Haas and Black Heart who thought she was one of the charmed ones in disguise. They vanquished both of the demons, and revealed to her who they really were. Billie then made a deal with the sisters; they would teach her everything they know about the craft and she would pick up the slack with battling evil, especially since at that time the sisters were presumed dead by the world. [7]

Practicing Witchcraft EditEdit

Billie: "Oh, yeah?! Actually my problem is, is that you're just killing my buzz!"
Paige: "Buzz. That's what you call fighting demons?"
— Paige meets Billie for the first time.[src]

[4]Paige teaches BillieThe sisters let Billie stay in their home in order to help her become more skilled in witchcraft. Despite having many other things to deal with, from time to time Paige would assist Billie with potion-making and instruct her in fighting demons. The vast majority of the knowledge she came to have was acquired from Leo, whom Paige enlisted to help Billie learn the true definitions and origins of magic, though she also had a tendency to find things out for herself as well. Besides this, she also studied the Book of Shadows and eventually created her own one as well. [8] [5]Billie using her projection power.As the months went on, Billie became an increasingly powerful witch, proving herself to a rare magical talent. Her mind-and-movement based powers also eventually expanded into a new active power of Projection: a supremely coveted and rare ability that enabled the possessor to manipulate reality. However, it took her some time to adjust to this power, because of her ignorance of how to control it and use it properly. In fact, when she just only unknowingly developed this power, she actually turned her parents into assassins and nearly got herself killed in the progress by them. However, with the help of the sisters, The Book of Shadows and Leo, she became exceptionally skilled in her Craft and learned to thoroughly embrace her destiny of being a witch. [9]

Finding Christy EditEdit

"And I have a sister to scry for!"
—Billie attempting to find her sister.[src]

Eventually, it was revealed that Billie's older sister, Christy had been kidnapped by a demon when they were little children. After discovering that Christy's kidnapping was supernatural and not otherwise, Billie became filled with vengeance and became unhealthily obsessed with finding the demons who took her and bringing her home. The sisters, by experience, knew that Billie's obsession would only lead to her getting hurt and not being able to bring Christy back at all though Billie didn't listen for the most part. Eventually, Billie honed her projection power to the point where she was able to project herself to Christy, finding her sister at last.

Turning against The Charmed Ones EditEdit

Paige: "Okay. Did they just vanquish a demon that can't be vanquished? "
Phoebe: "What does that mean? "
Piper: "I think that means we just found the ultimate power"
The Sisters realize Billie has turned against them.[src]

[6]Billie betraying the sisters.Billie finally succeeded in finding Christy, but unbeknownst to her, during Christy's fifteen years in captivity, she was brainwashed to believe that the Charmed Ones were on the verge of becoming evil and was given the mission to "save" Billie and turn her against the sisters in order to kill them. However it was much harder than she initially thought as Billie had become attached to the family. Christy started to plant doubt in Billie's mind, for example; trying to convince Billie that they should get a apartment together and move out of the manor, even jokingly telling Billie that Piper was torturing her with food; trying to get her to believe that it was way too selfish for the sisters to have faked their deaths, and that they were using her and her sister in order to get someone else to do their jobs and fight evil; and convincing her that the sisters created Utopia with the Avatars for their own personal gain. The final straw for Billie came after her parents were murdered by the Noxon Demons who the sisters refused to vanquish because they needed information to find the "Ultimate Power" and get Leo back. Christy's plan ultimately worked and [10] Billie eventually believed her sister, and moved out of the manor and back into her dorm room. It was eventually discovered that Billie and Christy's combined power of projecting and firestarting was the great power that the sisters needed to defeat. [7]Piper, Phoebe and Paige dreaming.Billie and Christy then set up base in Magic School. Although she still was unsure about the sisters' true intentions, Billie gave up on trusting them when Christy manipulated Billie into thinking Piper, "attacked" her, however it was plainly out of self-defense. When she thought things couldn't get any worse, Christy mentions a spell that would allow Billie to project herself into the sisters' minds to find out what they're really thinking. [11] Once in their dreams, she finds out that Piper is consumed with worrying if she will ever be able to get Leo back, Phoebe is consumed with her fear that it is too late to have the children she envisioned as well as Coop, while Paige is attempting to find balance and enlightenment.

The Ultimate Battle EditEdit

Dumain: "What about the Charmed Ones? "
Billie: "Piper, Piper’s the only one left. I don’t understand, you said the Hollow would be enough."
— Billie after the ultimate battle.[src]

After turning Billie against The Charmed Ones, Christy brought her to Magic School, which at the time was being taken over by demons. Once there, she met Dumain, a demon who she thought was a imaginary friend when she was younger, however he was working with Christy and The Triad to kill The Sisters. Once she settled in, Dumain staged an elaborate plan to use incidents of the sister's past to convince both Billie and The Magical Community that the Charmed Ones had truly become selfish with their witchcraft, and Christy got Billie to take over the Manor thus leaving, Piper, Phoebe, and Paige to hide out in the Underworld and then eventually Phoebe's condo. The Triad suggests to Dumain that Billie and Christy summon The Hollow to kill The Charmed Ones, however two other demons were listening in on the conversation, they also happened to be working with the sisters as well. Summoning the Hollow takes a powerful force (as seen in Season 4 when The Source of All Evil summoned it). Although the Charmed Ones were able to summon it themselves using The Power of Three, The Jenkins' had to get the help of Wyatt Halliwell, Piper and Leo's oldest son, as it would take "Charmed power" to summon it. Dumain shimmered over to their Charmed Ones' father's apartment where Wyatt and Chris Halliwell were staying and convinced Wyatt that he was needed to help his mommy. Billie and Christy held hands with the young boy and combined their power with his in order to summon the Hollow. Once acquired, they stole Wyatt's powers so they'll be evenly matched with The Charmed Ones.

Billie and Christy faced off with the sisters who had also summoned the Hollow. During the battle, the manor was obliterated, additionally killing Christy, as well as Phoebe and Paige. Billie goes to Magic School and Dumain convinces her to use her projection power to send her back to Christy, however, she discovers that he's using her to go back to the Triad instead.

Billie projects herself back into the past at the Manor, just as the past Billie and Christy arrive. She warns them but past-Billie sends present-Billie flying into the wall with her telekinesis and goes on to fight. The battle starts to play out as before but then Piper, Grams, and Patty arrive to cast a spell which drives the Hollow out of the five girls. Present-Billie and Piper merge with their past selves; time has caught up with itself. Billie and Christy teleport out with their potion. Billie tries to convince Christy that they have been used by the Triad, but all Christy can think of is fulfiling her mission and killing the Charmed Ones. Billie then goes to the sisters for help and forgiveness. She arrives at Magic School with the sisters and tries to convince Christy to stop her vendetta and come with her, though Christy hurls a fireball at her, causing Billie to telekinetically repel the fireball back at her in self-defense. Billie then breaks down and cries, as the sisters surround her.

Later Life EditEdit

"Just knowing that you're here, if we fail helps, Billie. It's bad enough we have to take you away from school to keep an eye on the Morrises."
—Billie returns back to San Francisco[src]

[8]Paige meets up with Billie again.After the ultimate battle, Billie moved away from San Francisco to the city of Los Angeles to finish college, which she stopped attending after her parents' death. Eighteen months later, Paige asked Billie to look after Darryl Morris and his family on the East Coast due to all of the sisters' innocents and charges being murdered. Paige later comes to Billie to ask her to lend some of her magic to vanquish The Source who recently came back as a Golem. After the Source was defeated, she presumably returned to Los Angeles. [12]

Presumably about five to six years later, Billie moved back to San Francisco after finally finishing college. She eventually became like a surrogate aunt to Phoebe's daughters even at one point, babysitting two of them while Phoebe and her husband, Coop went to the hospital when Phoebe went into labor with her third and final child.

However, the relationship between the two went downhill when she found Christy, and she eventually manipulated Billie into thinking the sisters were using Billie for their own personal gain. [14]

After that event happened, Piper was set on killing her and as well as Christy, while Phoebe and Paige weren't as set on the idea. Eventually, after betraying the sisters, Piper finally got them to agree to stopping them once and for all, which caused them to go into The Ultimate Battle, in which Piper and Billie were the only ones that had survived, Piper then tried to kill her by brutally punching her and then attempting to blow her up. After The Ultimate Battle it can be assumed that Piper forgave her and Billie still remains close friend with her and the Halliwell family.

When the charge jingled her again, she orbed to a cinema, and there she found Billie, dressed in black leather, and a black wig. It can be assumed that Paige is still Billie's whitelighter.

Billie's appearance hasn't changed that much over her year of appearances, she mostly keeps the same style. However, her overall appearance has changed much more than her sister, Christy has.

  • Hair: When we first meet Billie, she does a shoulder length black wig with bangs to her eyebrows however Billie is an attractive young blond woman only donning the disguise as a way to prevent her cover as a protector of the innocent from being revealed.
  • Wardrobe: Over the next several episodes she wears the clothes a typical teenage girl in her early 20's would wear: skinny jeans and a various array of tank tops and blouses. Later on in the season, her regularly side-parted hair goes from well coiffed to a kind of messy look then returns to the sleek look. On casual days she would wear her hair in a pony tail or in a kind of messy up-do. Her make-up remains relatively soft and natural with a touch of eyeshadow, lipstick and lip gloss, nothing overly dramatic or risque.

Etymology EditEdit
