Explanation of the conversion: This was one hell of a power to try to write in Champions rules. I settled on an Area Effect Transform and Entangle. The Transform changes any object to an object stopped in time and the Entangle holds the object in place. The limitation of "stopped by any barrier" means that she can't effect an object when there is anything between them, even simple glass. If she attempts to freeze or blow something through a closed window, it will only freeze or blow up the window.

Piper Halliwell History: Piper Halliwell was born on August 7, 1973 to the witch Patty Halliwell and the human Victor Bennett, their second child after Prudence.

As a witch she developed the power to freeze time, the same as her mother. March 24th, 1975 she was visited by a future version of herself. It was also on that day that Patty signed a pact with the warlock Nicholas to make him a ring that made him immune to her daughter's powers (That 70's Episode 1.17).

After Piper's little sister Phoebe was born in November 1975, Penny bound their powers to keep Nicholas from killing them and taking their powers.

Victor and Patty's mother Penny argued that he couldn't protect his own children from the supernatural since he was merely human, and Victor left (recounted in We All Scream For Ice Cream 3.10).

On February 28th, 1978, Patty was drowned fighting a water demon, which Piper's older sister Pru witnessed (recounted in P3H2O).

Although Piper showed a great aptitude for cooking, she had to get a job as a bank teller because it had health benefits she could use to help Penny.

Three Sisters After completing high school Piper and Prue then moved into an apartment together in Northbeach where they stayed until the Penny became ill and they moved back in with her. Prue became engaged to a man named Roger and she asked Piper to be her maid of honor. About the time Piper and Prue first ran into whitelighter Leo Wyatt, but didn't know who he was. Roger kept coming on to Phoebe secretly, then claimed Phoebe was after him. About this time Penny took a picture of the three sisters in front of the manor. Penny planned to use a potion to bind the girls powers forever, but she died before she could use it. Phoebe then left for New York to search for their father (PreWitched 3.17).

Piper Halliwell Six months later Phoebe returned home to live with her sisters. Piper learned she was one of three sisters called the Charmed Ones, powerful good witches who protect the innocent.

Prue then received a message on the Halliwell's spirit board from Max, a young boy with witch powers who had been kidnapped and was being forced by bank robbers to help them break into places. About this time Leo Wyatt also returned to the Halliwell house and got together with Piper. While Leo was working on the house, Phoebe discovered him levitating to replace a light bulb and he had to admit to being their whitelighter, or guardian angel. Leo made Phoebe swear not to tell her sisters about him. Leo explained to Piper that his work would keep him away from her and she accepted that. Prue was able to rescue Max and reunite him with his father, who Leo had had secretly healed after the robbers shot him (Secrets and Guys 1.14).

Started dating her whitelighter, Leo Wyatt.

Piper Halliwell When the sisters were attacked by the warlock Nicholas, who had a ring that made him immune to their powers, they cast a spell to travel back in time, where they were able to warn Patty and got her to unbless the ring. When they returned they able to vanquish Nicholas (That 70's Episode 1.17).

Piper gave up her job as a restaurant manager to open her own club, called P3.

Piper started a romance with their new neighbor Dan Gordon.

Piper was infected with a rare fatal blood disease and Leo was forbidden from helping her. When she died in the hospital, Leo met her as her spirit left her body and healed her. As punishment the elder whitelighters clipped his wings and made him human. Being mortal, Leo decided to focus on winning Piper's heart (Awakened 2.12).

Piper Leo eventually won her heart, but when a darklighter targeted Piper's sister Prue, Leo begged to have his powers returned so he could save her. He got them back, but didn't break off his relationship with Piper (Murphey's Luck 2.16).

Piper Halliwell When the evil alchemist Kierkin and his life essence creation Terra squabbled about him controlling her, she escaped and found her way to the Charmed Ones, where she possessed Piper during her 10 year class reunion. Keirkin followed Terra, but was slain by the Charmed Ones. Although Terra was able to pretend she was Piper for a little while eventually her sisters caught on to her plan. In order to save Piper Prue killed her and had Terra possess Leo, forced Terra use her alchemist powers to revive Piper, then with the Power of Three the sisters were able to vanquish the essence from Leo (Coyote Piper 3.09).

Piper Halliwell After a friend of Piper's discovered that Victor was back in town Piper went to investigate. About this time Prue noticed a strange ice cream truck that seemed to be abducting little kids. When Prue and Phoebe followed the truck they were sucked into it, where they found a strange frozen park inside and many children trapped there, being sucked into the nothing one by one. Phoebe and Prue freed several of the kids and trapped the driver inside his own truck, only to learn the children were demons and the truck was good. They contacted Victor and discovered that he could open the door on the ice cream truck because only humans could and asked for his help in freeing the truck's driver and recapturing the demons. Although the driver was taken by the nothing, they captured the demons and helped the new driver get his truck. This also helped Prue reconcile her feelings for Victor, who decided to move back into town (We All Scream For Ice Cream 3.10).

Piper Halliwell A warlock named Eames killed a witch with the power of deflection under the charge of a whitelighter named Natalie. Natalie went to Leo and the Charmed Ones for help. The Charmed Ones blew off Natalie's warnings and went after Eames together, only to fall for his trick in helped Eames kill a darklighter and take his crossbow. Eames then killed Natelie and took her power to orb to the realm of whitelighters planning on taking them all out with the crossbow, but where he was found the Charmed Ones waiting for him. They then vanquished him. Phoebe also confided in Leo that she didn't really vanquish Cole. The whitelighter elders were so happy with the Charmed Ones performance against Eames they lifted their probation on Leo and allowed him to be engaged to Piper (Blinded By The Whitelighter 3.11).

Piper Halliwell While preparing for the wedding of Leo and Piper, Prue started having reoccurring dreams of a dangerous man in a bar named T.J. she was visiting. Without knowing it her astral form was being used by her repressed emotions to get away from her responsibilities. After a murder outside the bar was blamed on Prue the police started to look for her. The sisters father Victor, Phoebe's half-demon boyfriend Cole Turner and Detective Daryl Morris attended the wedding, and the whitelighter elders sent Patty back to Earth for the day to attend the wedding as a gift. Before the police came after Prue T.J. crashed the wedding on a motorcycle, Piper almost called it off. Phoebe talked Prue into getting herself together and Daryl, Leo and Cole found the real killer. Leo and Piper were married by the ghost of her grandmother Penny in a special ceremony (Just Harried 3.15).

Her power grew so that she could not only freeze objects, but speed up their molecules, causing them to blow apart, something that took a lot of getting used to for Piper (Exit Strategy 3.20).

Piper Halliwell Prue was killed by the demon Shax, an assassin of The Source of All Evil (All Hell Breaks Loose 3.22).

Sisters After Prue's funeral Piper and Phoebe discovered that they had a half sister named Paige Matthews, who their mother had hidden because she was the product of an affair with her whitelighter. Piper and Phoebe helped Paige discovered her powers and they became the new Charmed Ones and vanquished Shax. Despite the Source of All Evil's failed attempt to turn Paige evil, she accepted her life as a good witch (Charmed Again Part 1 4.01 & Charmed Again Part 2 4.02).

Piper Halliwell Piper then tried to work out her anger over loosing Prue by hunting down random demons. Piper was exposed to the breath of a Fury and became one of those creatures, but she was able to overcome the transformation (Hell Hath No Fury 4.03).

Piper Halliwell When a evil zen student named Yenlo tired to kill his former master, Piper tried to save him by swapping souls with him so he could lead the other sisters to where he was being kept in limbo (Enter The Demon 4.04).

Piper Halliwell Phoebe authored a Source vanquishing spell that used the power of the Halliwell's witch ancestors. When the Seer informed the Source of his coming demise by the Charmed Ones the Source unleashed the Hollow, an ancient entity which could steal magical powers. The Source used the Hollow and it's dark guardian to steal Piper's powers and in the process nearly killed Phoebe, but Leo healed her. The Source then sent a darklighter with the Hollow to kill Leo and steal Paige's powers. The darklighter stole Paige's power for the Source and wounded Leo. The Seer then foresaw that the Hollow would consume everything if the Source kept using it. Thinking they might not survive Cole gave Phoebe a new engagement ring. At this time Paige was helping a woman named Carolyn regain custody of her child after getting out of an abusive relationship. Paige used magic to help Carolyn. The Seer betrayed the Source by contacting Cole and giving him the Hollow to help defeat the Source. The Seer and Phoebe then used their combined abilities to put the Hollow back in it's crypt. They returned the powers stolen from Piper and Paige, but this secretly left Cole with the Sources powers. Paige then healed Leo (Charmed and Dangerous 4.13).

Cole then started getting nightmares of becoming the new Source. Paige started practicing orbing herself over distances. Cole tried to fight becoming the Source, but it kept him from revealing what happened to the sisters, as the Seer attempted to guide him on his new dark path. A demon named Kurzon planned on taking over the underworld, so the Seer fooled him into thinking the Charmed Ones were planning on attacking him. She got him to attack the Charmed Once first. Paige got promoted for her work with Carolyn, but had to turn it down for fear of using her magic for personal gain. Phoebe started to get a bad feeling about her coming marriage, so Piper suggested she use magic to find out what her heart felt. Kurzon attacked Paige, was attacked by Piper and retreated. Phoebe cast the spell to hear her hearts desire, which ended up summoning her future and past selves. Older Phoebe refused to tell Phoebe about the events of the future for fear of changing things for the worse. Learning a young and vulnerable Phoebe was in the present, Kurzon attacked young Phoebe, but Cole protected her. Leo then took little Phoebe to the realm of whitelighters for protection. Kurzon attacked again, wounding older Phoebe. He was vanquished by the Charmed Ones, but not before older Phoebe told Phoebe to marry Cole. This returned the older and younger Phoebes to their own time. Paige decided to turn down the promotion to avoid personal gain from magic (The Three Faces of Phoebe 4.14).

Leo and Piper had their powers swapped by their unborn baby for a short time, until they learned to appreciate how hard each other's lives are (Siren Song 5.04).

When the Halliwell home started to suffer from hauntings due to all the past evil killed there, Piper summoned a witch doctor to cleanse the home. Although the witch doctor did his job, he was worried about the power the sisters commanded and their susceptibility to all that evil. The council of witch doctors decided it was best for the world if they got rid of the sisters, so they cast a voodoo spell on them, hoping their obsessions would destroy them. Paige became obsessed with marrying her old boyfriend Glen, going so far as to kidnap his bride to be and impersonating her. Phoebe became obsessed with a competing advice columnist and turned him into a turkey, which she planned to serve for dinner. Piper became so obsessed with a clean house she attempted to destroy the manor and start over with a cleaner house. Leo as able to help the sisters overcome their obsessions and they warned the witch doctors not to come after them again (Obsessions 5.13).

Leo and Piper's baby was born a boy, and they named him Wyatt Matthew Halliwell.

Leo was elevated to the status of elder whitelighter and get a divorce with Piper because he couldn't spend time, although he still watched over her and their son.
