Physical Appearance

Prudence has flawless dark skin, and short wavy bone white hair to contrast with her dark skin. She also has luscious lips and dark brown eyes. She is a girl of tall stature with a slim figure. Her attire consists of a lace-collared dark purple dress with black tights and shoes. In addition, she wears dark makeup to accentuate her dark witchy persona. Underneath her human appearance, she has a more ghoulish appearance, consisting of gray skin, glowing green eyes, no nose and black-rimmed teeth.

Personality

Prudence can be arrogant, proud, ambitious, cruel, and vicious, as well as intelligent and cunning. But she is also capable of compassion and kindness. She is the leader of the Weird Sisters, and as such, believes in order and balance. After discovering that Agatha and Dorcas plotted to kill Harvey and Tommy Kinkle, she aligned herself with Sabrina and punished Agatha for her wrongdoing. Despite this, Prudence shares her sisters' hatred for the Kinkle family, as they are descendants from known witch hunters, to which Prudence holds a great amount of disdain towards.

Prudence also has a long-standing rivalry with Sabrina, consistently attacking her over her dual nature of being half-mortal and half-witch, referring to her as "half breed". In spite of this, Prudence has shown her will to put their differences aside to work with Sabrina on multiple occasions, such as when they punished several football players for their behavior towards women and tricking Constance Blackwood into confessing that she enchanted the ballot box to favor Prudence as Queen of the Feast of Feasts.

Relationships

Weird Sisters

Prudence has a close relationship, with her sisters, Dorcas and Agatha. The three witches grew up together as orphans in the Church of Night. The three sisters look down on Sabrina Spellman for being half-mortal. Prudence has no qualms about punishing them, if they do something wrong; for example, killing mortals without Prudence's permission. Despite this Prudence cares deeply about her Sisters as she got worried when Agatha got sick, and was devastated when Father Blackwood poisoned them going so far to beg the Spellmans to save them.


Ambrose Spellman

CAOS-Caps-2x09-The-Mephisto-Waltz-103-Prudence-Ambrose

Ambrose and Prudence are together

When Ambrose started working at the Academy of Unseen Arts, Prudence began a temporary affair with him during the Lupercalia, while his boyfriend Luke left the country on behalf of her father. After the strange death of Luke and the imprisonment of Ambrose in prison, Prudence was his ruthless overseer.

They had despised each other for a long time, but her attitude toward Ambrose began to change for the better when he decided to stay at the Academy to warn the witches about the witch-hunters' attack instead of running away and saving himself.

Later, Prudence begs Ambrose and his aunties to help her Weird Sisters and reveals that her father poisoned the entire Coven. When they and the coven were saved, Ambrose asks Prudence how her sisters are and tells her that Faustus Blackwood used them by exploiting their desire for a father and he blinded them to the family that they already have. The two hold hands.

After defeating Lucifer, Prudence and Ambrose embark on a quest to hunt down Father Blackwood. Before leaving, Prudence beheads Blackwood’s statue and tells Ambrose that her father won’t be easy to hunt down and to kill. Ambrose vows to seek his true destiny as a witch, something shared by Prudence.


Sabrina Spellman

Prudence and initially seemed to despise and look down on Sabrina for being half-mortal, evident by their numerous encounters, such as when she, Agatha and Dorcas put a blood curse on her, to convince her not to come to the Academy of Unseen Arts and put her through the Harrowing, a cruel hazing ritual at Academy. However, their relationship isn't always so antagonistic. When Prudence is selected as the Queen of the Feast of Feasts, Sabrina tries to convince her to decline the opportunity. However, Sabrina’s efforts are hindered by Prudence's suborn faith in the Dark Lord. Prudence also teams up with Sabrina to punish Agatha for killing Tommy Kinkle and gladly agreed to help Sabrina with her Seance. Despite this, Prudence doesn’t think that she and Sabrina are friends, as Sabrina only talked to her and her sisters when she needs something from them.


Zelda Spellman

Prudence has a great amount of respect for Zelda, for her devoutness to the Dark Lord and the Church of Night. She helps Zelda hide Faustus Blackwood's daughter Leticia to protect her. After Zelda marries Father Blackwood, she became Prudence’s stepmother. In that time, Zelda showed Prudence how Father Blackwood was a ruthless misogynist who would let her die if he had to.
