Samantha is a witch born into a large, eccentric family that includes her mother Endora, her father Maurice, her twin cousin Serena, her Uncle Arthur, and aunts Clara, Enchantra and Hagatha. With the exception of her Aunt Clara, Samantha's entire family frowns on her "mixed" marriage to a mortal. She is married to Darrin Stephens, a non-supernatural man whom she literally bumped into several times in one day, and subsequently fell in love with. Though now a dutiful wife and mother of two, she is not your typical suburban housewife. While trying to maintain her household, as well as her promise to Darrin of "no witchcraft," she copes daily with Endora's dislike of her husband, Darrin's dislike of her mother, a practical-joking warlock of an uncle, an irresistible, doddering older aunt who can unintentionally black out the entire Eastern seaboard of the United States, the world's nosiest neighbor, and assorted other wood nymphs, elves and warlocks. Though once crowned "Queen of the Witches" by the Witches Council, Samantha uses sound logic and clever instinct to find her way out of most of the supernatural challenges that befall the Stephens family in their home on Morning Glory Circle in Westport, Conn.
