Pandora is the middle child of Paige Matthews and Henry Mitchell and the youngest twin. Pandora is ten-minutes youngest than her twin sister. She´s more connected to her Whitelighter side and she´s also the trouble maker of the twins.
Pandora is the youngest daughter of Paige and Henry, and the younger twin to Tamora Mitchell. Pandora's powers were bound when she was still a baby, as well as her sister´s, as neither one could control them enough. She got them back in high school and she was able to learn how to control them over time.
Pandora is different from Tamora and they fight a lot but always end up making peace in the end. She and her sister grew up very close to there cousins, Melinda and Prue. Pandora is shy and a little withdrawn.
Despite being close to Prue, Melinda and Tamora, she likes to talk with Charlotte because she feels like they have similar ways of thinking.
Pandora was always the trouble maker. Almost all of the situations involving a wrong use of magic was her fault. She often takes her sister with her on her rendezvous.
Pandora is a senior at college, however, at the same time, she´s working as a social worker in the same place her mother used to work years ago.
Both Pandora and Tamora share some characteristics with their mother when she younger. Paige is more responsible now and is always asking her daughters to get out of troubles.
The Power of NinePrue, as well as her cousins, have known for their entire life that being the child of a Charmed One means a lot in the Magical Community. On Piper´s birthday in 2030, the whole family was attacked by a Sender demon who killed Phoebe. Prue knew that the only way to prevent her mother from being killed was changing the past. So Prue and her cousins Wyatt and Chris went back in time to stop the events from happening. Wyatt, Chris and Prue came back from the time travel with Piper, Phoebe and Paige and together, they managed to stop the demon from killing Phoebe. They found out that the demon Ayacha was behind the whole thing and all nine Charmed progeny went to the Underworld and put an end in Ayacha´s life using the Power of Nine spell. Before dying, Ayacha reveals that the Charmed Ones´ progeny was known as the Destined Ones. They also found out that evil was gaining strength and they needed to be prepared for that.
Relationship with TamoraPandora and her twin sister were always best friends, but that didn´t mean they didn't fight. Tamora was the responsible twin while Pandora was the trouble maker of the twins and didn't think twice when it comes to the use of magic. Since they were kids, Tamora was often pushed into Pandora´s mess. In 2030, Pandora cast a spell while trying to help her boss and ended up getting stuck to Tamora. Prue and Melinda and also their mother Paige tried to get them back to normal, but the only solution was for them to stop fighting which they did.
Pandora is impulsive, protective, energetic, humorous, withdrawn, and calm. Pandora, unlike her sister, is more connected to her Whitelighter side. Since she is in tuned with her Whitelighter side, Pandora has an inherent need and ability to help others, which led her to want to become a social worker. Pandora is unreasonable when she's angry or when someone doesn't agree with her.
Pandora is responsible, but when it comes to magic, she is rather immature. She is a trouble maker and that gets her into some bad situations. Pandora is also very intelligent, not a spell-writer, but not afraid to try. She can remain calm depending on the situation. She is not afraid to stick up for what she thought was right.
When it comes to love, Pandora is not the dating type. She loves to be with someone, but she is not dependent on others.
In relationships, Pandora doesn't have a long list of dates. She dreams in finding Mr. Right.
- Drew Landon: Pandora and Drew had a brief romantic relationship, that was primarily physical. They broke up after only dating for a short while. Drew died in the year 2033 after trying to save a group of innocents stuck in a fire, and this saddened Pandora to learn of her friend and exes death. She also attended his funeral with her sister, Tamora.
Professional LifeShe is a graduate of UCBerkeley where she studied and presumably majored in Social Care. She also has a part-time job at South Bay Social Services, where she is an assistant. She currently works at the same place her mother worked at when she first found out she was a Charmed One. Pandora tried to use magical help to solve a few hard cases, however, this has backfired a few times. She sometimes goes to her mother for help instead.
AppearancePandora and her sister were both born with auburn hair color, however, their hair color darkened to dark auburn over the years. Sometime before 2030, Pandora changed her hair color to brown. She has long hair and blue eyes (possibly from her father´s parents).
Pandora wears casual clothes on a professional basis. To go out at night she prefers more revealing clothes. Sometimes she even wears her sister´s clothes.
Pandora wears simple makeup but a little more makeup when going out.
