Hope Kermen is a character that made her debut appearance in Must Be The Heart.
Hope originally thought herself to be just a normal, mortal assistant, and that is what others though of her. However, it was later revealed to be more than that, during a fight against the demon, Killian. During the fight, where she was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time, she was attacked by Killian. She was suddenly overcome by fear, and tapped into her dormant Banshee side and emitted a Sonic Scream.
She was then brought back to the Manor and let in on the Halliwell-Mitchell family's secret. She was also told about the secret of magic and the Magical Community. Since then, she has been on a journey of self-discovery and romance.
Father's Affair Edit
Before Hope was born, her father had an affair with an unknown woman. Her mother found out and that caused her mother to be heartbroken and very angry. Since her mother was a witch, this anger and heartbreak attracted a coven of Banshees to her. She was then turned into a Banshee, and left Hope's father to be with the Banshees.
Hope's mother found out she was pregnant with Hope after she became a Banshee, and originally ignored it, insisting that it wasn't real. A few months later, when Hope was starting to become a little human, her mother fell in love with her. Her love for her daughter turned her back into a human, but she stayed with the Banshees until the birth of her daughter.
Hope's mother stayed with the Banshees for a little while after Hope's birth. Because of this, Hope's child-ears were susceptible to the Banshees screams. Her human ears couldn't stand the screams, and this forced her mother to give her up. She gave Hope to her ex-husband (Hope's father) and never turned back.
Growing up Edit
She was raised by her father and presumably her paternal Grandparents. Hope was kept in the dark about the truth of her origins and mother, and was told that her mother was dead. She also knew nothing about her Banshee side, or her ties to the Magical Community. For the most part, she grew up as a mortal woman.
Before Fated Edit
Prior to Hope's introduction to Fated and her meeting the Fated Ones, she worked as an assistant to Sara Lynn at Sara's company, Interior Chic Designs. Hope was also oblivious to the supernatural and magical world, and was under the impression that she was a mortal.
Physical Appearance EditHope is a beautifully thin and petite young woman standing at 5'3", and is shown to be of a slim build. She has young looking features and is very pretty. She has very pale skin, long red hair, green eyes, and thin eyebrows. She has naturally full, often red or pink, lips and a wide smile that is quite endearing. She looks rather youthful and dresses quite youthful as well.
Her clothing attire is very fashionable and hip with earthly tones, as she is seen wearing dresses or pencil skirts with dressy blouses and high heels or booties. She likes to keep her eye makeup to a minimum in favor of wearing bold colored lipstick, and occasionally wears thin chain necklaces or simple rings to accessorize.
Hope is a highly intelligent, overachieving, and extremely patient young woman. She constantly balances many jobs, most for her boss Sara Lynn. These can include numerous phone calls, scheduling or canceling meetings, juggling interns, speaking to clients, and even smaller jobs like getting coffee etc. Hope has been shown to have an extremely good memory, as she is able to remember every task that Sara throws her way no matter how ridiculous.
She is also kind and caring, as well as extremely loyal to her friends and people she cares about. This was proven when she grew worried about Sara's romantic life because she knew how much Sara cared about her partner. She has a strong mind and is kind, loyal, extremely intelligent (and unafraid to show it), and determined to help people however she can.
Powers and Abilities Edit
- Main article: Hope Kermen/Power Page
- "A banshee is a mythical creature who has a scream that is extremely deadly. However, most of them aren't human looking. Which makes me think she must be half human, half-banshee hybrid."
- —Leo on Hope's hybrid status
Hope is a half-banshee half-human hybrid. Due to her human side, she doesn't appear to look like a normal banshee. Instead, she resembles that of a human. It was stated that as a child her human ears couldn't stand the sound of the Banshee's screaming. Years later she would possess Sonic Scream and be able to hear it without difficulty.
Her Sonic Scream power was activated for the first time in Must Be The Heart when she was afraid for her life for the first time. Episodes later in A Visit To Another Time, her powers advance and she senses a death for the first time. She originally didn't know who it was that was going to die, but later was able to see who it was and draw a picture of her.
Although originally just cordial, the two became close friends both inside and outside of the office. In Must Be The Heart, Hope worries about her friend's romantic life after Sara postpones a dinner date with her boyfriend and possible soul mate.

Appearances in Fated Edit
Season One Edit
- When asked about the future of the character and what impact Hope has on the rest of the Season, the author stated, "Hope's character has potential to be something very different. I feel like she brings a different edge to the show and the universe of Fated. She also expands on the already set mythology of Banshees from Charmed. [...] Hope shakes up a certain character on the show and becomes an asset to the Fated Ones in many different ways."
