Early lifeEdit

Little payton
Payton was born to a happy family consisting of her mother Lillian and her father Christopher, but that soon changed when her father became an alcoholic after landing in a depression when his powers were taken away. During this time he was frequently careless in looking after Payton when Lillian was at work. Out of anger he once threw a bottle of alcohol at her. (see more : Christopher and Payton).

When she was two, Payton's little sister Claire was born. Claire was favored by Christopher because he felt he had a fresh start with his youngest daughter. As a result Payton developed a close bond with her mother, who started teaching her magic from a young age. Payton has fond memories of her mom, especially her laugh and her perfume. One of Lillian's main objectives was to create a good connection with other royals, which is why she took Payton to France shortly after her third birthday, where Payton met Sebastien Ambroise. (see more: Lillian and Payton)

When Payton was four, her parents died in an attack by The Valkyries and The Millers. Her sister's protective shield made sure she and Claire survived. Afterwards Payton was taken to the hospital where she saw the doctors try to revive her mom, with no success. To this day Payton still hates hospitals because of the things she saw that night, as it is one of her earliest vivid memories.

She was raised in the magical dimesion as princess Payton for most of her childhood years. Legally she was under the custody of her paternal aunt Lucy Greene, who became queen of Slivatica while she lived in Texas.

When she was 13, she became a freshman at Sint-Joseph's Boarding School and she started dorming. Her original roommate was Katie Sampter. The following year Katie transfered to a single room and when Claire became a freshman Lucy arranged for the sisters to be roommates, while she remained living in Texas, keeping her distance from the sisters. While attending SJBS she meets most of her close friends, including Mike Creeton and Mila Romano in their first year together, as well as her boyfriend Pierre Dumoulin

Payton became a part of the school newspaper mid-way through her sophomore year, her first year at SJBS, in an attempt to make new friends. 

Season OneEdit

In her Senior Year, Payton's winning streak of not drawing attentions to herself and avoiding getting killed comes to an end. With the arrival of The Dawsons Payton is forced to recognize the history they have in her hometown. Despite this she refuses an alliance at first, and drives them out of town. When the spell to do so backfires, she is forced to accept an alliance between them anyways. She agrees to fight with them in an upcoming threat. She attends a vampire-political gathering for this, and trains with the Dawsons to prepare for the fight. Payton impresses them with her fighting skills, and she talks to them about having to be vigilant all her life.

When the fight comes, Payton feels betrayed not knowing that the enemy are James' siblings. This forces a strain on their alliance, especially with Alyssa being mysterious. Eventually Jason and Seth talk to her and convince her that their alliance is worth it. Payton agrees to continue training to them for future threats, potentially in the form of Aria Woods who escaped the fight against The Travellers.

Payton then focusses on Homecoming and her responsibilities at the school newspaper. She helps Sarah Wells get a date with Mike, and eventually she agrees to go to Winter Formal with Jason as Mike was her original date. In early December Payton is invited to a dinner honoring Seth's 205th birthday. Payton shares a talk with Nate about her concerns that Aria is still out there. When Payton mentions she is all the family she has, Nate objects saying they are her family too.

On Valentine's Day, Payton is involved in Operation Cupid, orchestrated by Mike to get Mila and Katie to admit their feelings for eachother and open up. However she also experiences the painful reminder of her break-up last spring. Despite this, Payton is happy for Mike, Sarah, Mila and Katie.

When news hits that they have tracked Aria down, Payton heads to Paris with Seth and Jason during spring break. There they fight Aria, who has brought backup in the form of the Anconi. Payton gets a severe concussion, a broken left tibia and bruised ribs. Despite of this she is concerned about what the Anconi's involvement means for Jason. Payton and Jason share a talk, which gets deep when it revolves around their connection. Payton reveals she knows that Jason has certain feelings, but that those will never be returned.

After the trip to Paris, Payton focusses on college applications, and she finds out she has been accepted into Portland University for a Communications degree. This leaves her to question if she should leave her sister to go attend college. Mike creates even more doubt when he breaks their pact of going to Portland together, stating he is going to Arizona where his mom is.

When Jason is taken away for his part in killing The Travellers, Payton feels guilty and James talks to her about the different laws and repercussions in their world. On her turn, Payton opens up about life in the magical dimension, contrasting to her current life in Sint-Joseph's Boarding School. Payton then decides to write Sebastien Ambroise.

Before graduating and potentially moving away, Payton attends prom with her friends. There she tells Mike to go to Arizona, realizing that not being around her would inavoidably keep him safer.

Season TwoEdit

When Payton finds out her sister is missing, she is panicked, but Seth manages to calm her down and is a large support for her. After Claire wakes up, Payton watches a romance between Claire and Seth develop and she ensures the couple that she is supportive. She thanks Seth for everything he has done, and they share a meaningful hug.

When Payton finally graduates, Jason shows up as a surprise during the graduation ceremony. Payton then prepares to move to Portland with Lauren and Nate and Jason. However when Jason explains to her that he has to stay in Waterfall Creek for upcoming threats from The Millers Payton feels abandoned by her friend.

When Liam shows up, Payton doesn't want anything to do with him however Claire does and she eventually lets him go. It's not until several months later that Payton actually meets her brother, when he shows up in Portland to help her fight a bunch of vampires.

Jason eventually keeps his promise and joins Payton in Portland, though the relationship between him and Payton is strained for a while.


When in Waterfall Creek for homecoming, Payton gets approached by the culture comittee. They ask her to join, but Payton politely declines, and she continues spending the weekend with Claire.

  • Bash' marriage proposal?

Season ThreeEdit

TO BE EDITED SEASON THREE When there is still no word of Mila and neither of Liam, Payton starts to get more and more scared. She starts to think that Liam and Mila's disappearance are not a coincidence. The next day, Payton and Jason go to the safehouse Alyssa had told them about. There they find Liam, keeping Mila captive, and Jason beats Liam to a pulp. When he gets close to killing Liam, Payton stops him and tells Jason she doesn't want to lose him again if he breaks another one of the Anconi's laws. Payton tells Liam to never come near her or her family again, and tells him that he is dead to her. She regrets ever allowing him in her life, and she apologizes to Mila for what he did to her. Payton continues to feel guilty but she tries to focus on school again.

While Claire distracts herself with senior year and her desire to be a designer, Payton is very supportive of her. She visits Waterfall Creek on the first day of school for the seniors. She is happy to see that Alyssa has moved to town to help protect her little sister.

In the fall, Payton attends the wedding of Alyson and Dylan. Jason finds her at the beach, and the two of them talk about what's between them. Jason asks Payton out on a date to Fall Fest, and Payton eventually agrees, deciding to give Jason a chance.

Jason starts talking about their future and overwhelms Payton, who says she needs time before she can have a relationship with him. Whenever Payton is back in Waterfall Creek , they start hanging out a bit more.

  • Payton's nerve damage?

Their relationship develops slowly from there on. Their spring picniks are consisting of him telling her old ancient stories, and their summer afternoons consist of showing off their skills at the pond, or at the Dawson house. Jason also takes Payton camping.

In december she hosts a dinner party on Christmas where she invites all her closest friends and family.

When Jason takes her to an old building in Waterfall Creek, he suggests to her to make it into a nightclub. Payton is originally a bit hesitent, but she agrees after all when Lauren talks to her about it. Lauren and Jason start working together on the project, and Payton is happy that Jason has found a job that works for him.

When Mike comes to visit her during spring break, Payton wonders why he does not seem to be talking about school. Instead he seems very interested in the club idea and avoids any school related subject. When she finds out he has quit, she is dissappointed but Mike explains to her that college wasn't his thing and with everything that happened to Mila he didn't want to be at the other side of the country from his friends. Payton agrees, and she starts to feel a bit homesick herself.

"If she ever becomes a vampire, I don't kknow if there is much room for improvement in her beauty..."
Nate about Payton during the Dawson Charity Ball

Payton is a very beautiful, attractive young woman with a long squared face, light olive complexion, brown eyes and brown hair, variating from dark to light. Her hair is usually shoulder lenght, occasionally shorter or longer. Her eyes are not green like most of her paternal ancestors.

She prefers wearing her hair half up or fully up in a ponytail. She usually wears make up, not a lot but not a little either. She jokes it's her way of looking flawless like others in her family such as Alyson and Elisabeth.

Her style can be described as casual, but with a classy touch. She has a thing for pastel colours, and loose fitted items. She also buys dresses, but those somehow make it into Claire's closet as she said herself. She has a style that mixes work and party for when she is at the club.

To see Payton's outfits throughout the season, see Payton Silverstone/Appearance


Payton is a twiceblessed royal, which makes her unique even within the royals. Her bloodlines are the Silverstone Bloodline and the Greene Bloodline which grant her several special powers on top of the elemental powers she has like every witch in the form of Geokinesis.

Her expertise is within spells of the Silverstone bloodline, but she has knowledge of Greene spells too. Payton has created three spells herself, most noticably the one she used to help her vampire family members deal with sunlight, and a protection spell for her unborn child while she didn't have her powers. Aside from basic witchcraft, Payton was born with some specific special powers.

  • Telekinesis (enherited): She can move objects with her mind, without touching them. She can also do this to humans to a certain extent. She enherited this power from her mother's side of the family
  • Advanced Agrokinesis (enherited): Payton can control nature and earth better then the average witch or wizard. She can make fauna and flora survive in otherwise harsh conditions. She enherited this power from her father's side of the family.
  • Advanced Photokinesis: Payton can control light, both natural and synthetic. She can brighten rooms that do not have a source of light.
  • Portaling :Payton can, like all other royals, use a portal to transfer to another dimension. Being born in the Silverstone House, she has a close connection to the portal in the attic and can sense it from a distance.
  • Empathy: Payton can sense feelings of people around her. She usually knows when someone is hiding someone or lying as well, so the power goes beyond just emotions. She has conditioned herself into blocking out Claire, and later on she does the same with Jason. She later channels part of her power into rings for Seth and Alyssa. She is the first empath to be born with the power.
  • Healing : Payton has the power to heal. She theoretically can also heal people without a hartbeat and bring them back, but that would stop her own heart because the amount of power it takes from her. She can not heal herself, and because of this Payton is often extra protected during battles. 
  • Omnikinesis (shared with Claire) : Payton and her sister Claire together are able of doing omnikinesis, having control over everything. This is a result of them being born as twiceblessed children. Before Claire was born, Payton had the ability to do this on her own, but she never manifested in this particular area of witchcraft at this early age.
    • Payton and Claire first use this power against The Travellers, but they have known the theoreticality of it since they were raised in the Golden Castle. Due to Claire's problems with bloodmagic, the sisters have agreed not to use this powers because the dangerous consequences it could have.
