Samantha Stephens is an American housewife who is also a witch. She has a twitch in her nose that has always been her main characteristic when doing magic. She is the main protagonist of the show.

BiographyEdit

In 1964 she married a mortal named Darrin Stephens. She wanted to have a normal life so she and Darrin made an agreement that she would never use witchcraft, except in emergencies, and have an ordinary, "mortal", happy life. This was much to the dismay of her parents, Endora and Maurice, who don't like the fact, as they see it, that their daughter is rejecting her heritage. Samantha became the Queen of Witches in the fourth season of the series.

However, witchcraft always will be a part of the Stephens family as Samantha's family is always playing tricks on Darrin. Through the years Darrin would accept that magic always will be a part of Samantha.

Samantha and Darrin have a loving relationship, but they are always battling against people that want to break up their marriage. They have mutually learned to be a part of the other's world.

In 1965 Samantha gave birth to a daughter named Tabitha who inherited Samantha's magic powers. No matter how much Samantha and Darrin tried to teach Tabitha not to use witchcraft, the little witch is always playing innocent magical games, encouraged by Endora.

In 1970 Samantha gave birth to a boy named Adam who, like his sister, inherited their mother's magic powers. Like his sister, he was encouraged to use witchcraft by Endora, much to the dismay of Samantha and Darrin. although Adam became a mortal then a Warlock later in his life

Physical Appearance Edit

She has large green eyes, silky and sleek blonde hair that is nearly shoulder-length. She is slender but tall for a woman.

PersonalityEdit

Samantha is shown to be a loyal, compassionate, intelligent and a very endearing person, generally winning over those she meets effortlessly.

She likes being a housewife and doesn't like overly using her witchcraft. However, no matter how hard she tries not to use it, she can never stray far from her heritage. She has never ever been shown to be an awfully vindictive or cruel person, like most witches are towards humans.

Samantha has also been shown to demonstrate a great deal of intelligence, able to cope well in bad situations and can solve a predicament entirely by herself.

Samantha also possessed a spirited and compassionate nature. She has also proved to be beautiful and competent; she was very fiery in nature and also happened to be the only one who would stand up for her choices and beliefs. 

She was not afraid to be different to other witches and strongly believed in the justice and rightness of her marriage to Darrin. She would always stand up for what she believed was right.

As a mother, Samantha was warm and kind natured. She was very adoring and maternal to her children and would call her them "beautiful" and act in the most motherly way towards them that was possible. She not only possessed physical perfection, but a good nature too. Her difference to other witches was that she did not loathe mortals and in fact married one. Although she was frequently threatened for this, she would never budge. She also had a high set of principles which she would not injure for anything. She also loved her children more than anything in the world.

She was also not always serious; she would, a lot of the time, be humorful. Although Darrin would rarely reciprocate the humor, it didn't stop her. She was also brave willed and possessed a passionate and fiery spirit. She was more unique than any other witch and had her own style, preferring to stay at home rather than just party and be carefree, the normal behavior of her cousin Serena.

TriviaEdit

  • Samantha is the only character to appear in every episode of the series.
  • It is hinted that Samantha and her relatives are much longer lived than 'mortals' like Darrin.  Samantha may be centuries old.
  • With a couple of exceptions, most of the witches on the show, including Samantha, have names that end in the letter "a" (e.g. Endora, Clara, Hagatha, Samantha, Tabitha).
    • This concept may have been based on Glinda from The Wizard of Oz (mentioned many times in the series) but also it could have been invented either intentionally or coincidently two years earlier by the first comic book appearance of Sabrina the Teenage Witch along with her Aunt Hilda (her other Aunt Zelda did not appear until 1968). Later media has used this as well such as Once Upon a Time with some characters using magic named Regina, Cora, Zelena, and Emma.
