Early Life

Prudence is the illegitimate daughter of Father Blackwood. Her mother, who remains unknown, threw herself into a river after Faustus refused to marry her. Following this tragic event, Father Blackwood took Prudence with him and raised her as his own, which unbeknownst to Prudence, was due to the fact that she was his daughter. She grew up along with Agatha and Dorcas as an orphan in the Church of Night. The trio became known as the Weird Sisters. Prudence became very devout to her faith, and at some point met Sabrina Spellman, who she began bullying due to her dual nature.

Throughout Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

The Weird Sisters show up after Sabrina calls for a familiar in the woods. They taunt her and discourage her attending the Academy of Unseen Arts, call her names like half-breed, and allude to the fact that her parent's deaths might not have been an accident. Before they leave, the three sisters put a blood curse on Sabrina.

Later, Sabrina enlists the Weird Sisters help. She wants to teach the football players from Baxter High a lesson because they hurt her friend, Susie. The three of them agree to aid Sabrina but, in return, she must swear to not join the Academy. Sabrina lies and agrees to the bargain. Together they lure the high schoolers to the mines. They put a spell on them making them think that they're making out with Sabrina and the sisters. In reality, they are embracing each other. Sabrina uses her polaroid camera to take a picture of them. She threatens to reveal the photo to the school unless they stop harassing Susie. The Weird Sisters decide that they aren't done toying with the boys. They make the lights go out in the mines and proceed to scare them. The football players scream and run out of the mines as fast as they can. The sisters tell Sabrina that they put a spell on them to make them impotent. They also tell her that they know she lied about going to the academy.

The Weird Sisters are present at the Dark Baptism and watch as Sabrina runs away from signing the book. They, along with the rest of the coven, go after her. They're stopped from setting foot on Spellman Mortuary land because of Ambrose Spellman. He had bluffed and told them that there is a protective circle around the house. Because she refused to sign the book, Sabrina is sent an Infernal Summons and put on trial. The sisters attend the trial and learn that Sabrina will be attending the Academy after having struck a deal with the Dark Lord.

During Sabrina's first day at the Academy, she sings a couple of notes for Lady Blackwood, the choir teacher. Lady Blackwood comments that Prudence finally has a rival singer. At lunch, the three sisters join Sabrina and Nicholas Scratch at their table. Prudence asks if the Academy is like her other school and that they heard that she didn't want to take her Dark Baptism because she is in love with a mortal. Prudence points out that she shares that characteristic with her father. Nick asks her why she has to be a bitch all the time and Prudence responds to his taunt asking him why he has to be a warlock-slut.

Later, Sabrina is taken to the Witch's Cell where Prudence and her sisters begin the Harrowing. It's witch tradition and Sabrina has to be able to endure what the Greendale Thirteen did. Prudence tells her that she's a Spellman, daughter of a High Priest, she's not scared of the dark and that she can take it. Prudence closes the door and locks Sabrina inside. Her laughter can be heard as they walk away. In the morning, Prudence opens the door and assumes that the cell has taken another victim. Sabrina actually is perfectly fine because Salem had come to her rescue the night before and stayed with her all night. After Sabrina took a shower she went back to the sleeping room and Sah, the Salem and her Pyjamas was gone, she immediately accused Prudence and her Sisters of taking them. But they claim they don’t know what she’s talking about, Sabrina starts pushing Prudence before a Fight escalated. Father Blackwood showed up revealing that he has Salem and tells Sabrina to come to his office.

The next night, the Weird Sisters come to take Sabrina out into the woods. She tries to stop them and tells them that they don't need to hate each other. Prudence tells her that they have plenty of reasons to hate her because her dad betrayed his own kind to marry a mortal. They make her walk the same path that the Greendale Thirteen walked as they went to the nose. They leave her beneath a big tree and warn her to not look behind her or else she'll die. No matter what she hears. They leave her there until dawn.

The following night, Sabrina again begs them to leave her alone but Prudence tells her that there isn't a hope in hell for that. The hang a nose around her neck and lead her back out into the woods. Prudence asks her if she knows what it's like to die by hanging. That it isn't as fast as people think. Prudence asks if she has any last words. Sabrina says yes and says that the Greendale Thirteen wouldn't want this to be happening. She tells them that the Academy tradition of Harrowing will end tonight. Prudence laughs and tells her that it's three against one. She tries to lift Sabrina up by pulling on the rope but Sabrina doesn't move. Suddenly, a ring of children appear around her and the three sisters are pulled up by invisible ropes into the tree. They hang there struggling to breathe and clawing at invisible bindings. Sabrina asks them if they understand that Harrowing will no longer be tolerated and they nod. The children let them go and Sabrina helps Prudence stand. Sabrina threatens Prudence and tells her that if she ever says anything about her parents again that she'll choke Prudence with her own blood.

Prudence gets called into Father Blackwood's office. He yells at her for being bested by a half-breed. Prudence tells him that it won't happen again. He hopes not. He knows that the Dark Lord wants Sabrina to be at the Academy but he never said that she couldn't suffer while she was here.

Physical Appearance

Prudence has dark skin and short wavy blonde hair. 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 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 cruel and vicious, but she is also intelligent and cunning. 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 descendant 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 Lady Blackwood into confessing that she enchanted the ballot box to favor Prudence as Queen of the Feast of Feasts.
