- "I'm a witch, yeah, right. How did you find out? Was the hiding place for my broom to obvious? Or wait, did I accidentally leave my cauldron and Eye of Newt lying around? Gosh darn, my days of riding my broom through the night and sacrificing the neighbors cats to Satan are over."
- —Michelle, not believing she's a witch.
Michelle Louise Forbes was born on the 4th March 1992 to Sandra Forbes and Michael Waters, a witch. As Michelle did not know her father, neither she or her mother knew this and thus didn't know that Michelle was also a witch. She is the cousin of Caroline Forbes, a vampire and naeice of Bill Forbes, a vampire hunter. Michelle grew up in Kansas, where her mother had gone to collage and eventually stayed when she had her. She lived a normal life until she was 15, when her mother told her about vampires and that her family hunted them.
