Used by Cupids to help charges, grants additional powers
A Cupid Ring is a powerful magical artifact owned by Cupids, who use their rings to guide their charges and are granted additional powers. When Cupids are reborn as cherubs they have no inherent power. It comes from the ring, which they get as soon as they’re old enough to wear it. Over time a bond forms between the Cupid and the ring, the love magic becomes a part of that Cupid. They can still access the magic without their ring, but it's not nearly as strong as when they have it.
Cupid-Witches are shown to possess the power of Remote Beaming, presumably through their Wiccan powers enabling the magic.
It has been shown that other magical beings, specifically witches, can access the powers of the ring. This was shown when both Piper Halliwell and Christy Jenkins used the ring to Time Travel. However, controlling the ring's powers might be difficult, as the ring is motivated by the heart and not the mind.
When cupids use the ring it is recognizable by the flash of pink emitted from the stone. However, when Drazi used it, it was recognizable by the flash of green emitted from the stone.
The Eros RingEdit
The ring of Eros is the most powerful cupid ring in existence. Eros is the source that makes all cupid magic possible and is used to make all other cupid rings. Besides possessing all the other qualities of a normal cupid ring, the ring of Eros can also be used to undo relationships that have been blessed in the heavens. The ring is kept in a vault in Cupid's Temple, which not even The Elders can get into.
Known Magical AbilitiesEdit
In early 2006, Coop took Phoebe back in time to show her past loves, in a bid to restore her faith in love. On their time travel trip, Phoebe was apparently guiding their trips although Coop was activating the power. He took her to the 1920s, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005.
During their trip Coop revealed that changing things was possible, however, cupids do not (or are not allowed to) manipulate the past. They tend to just use this power to teach lessons to an unwilling person.
Later that same year, Piper and Leo borrowed Coop's ring to go back in time and save her sisters. Piper had to focus on who she wanted to go to with her heart, not her head, and overshot the first two times before her future self explained this to her. Their first stop was 1975 where they collected Patty and then 1982 where they collected Penny before traveling to 2050 where Piper and Leo met their futureselves and finally back to 2006 approximately 8 hours before Phoebe and Paige were killed.
Coop can sense when someone is displaced in time and return them to their rightful place in time even if he wasn't the one to displace them. He displayed this when he returned Patty and Penny to their time.
After helping the two co-workers fall in love, the Cupid was attacked by Drazi. After a short fight, Drazi stole his ring, and used it to slow down time so that he could destroy Max and Cindy's relationship. He later used it to slow down time at P3 so that he could destroy Prue and Piper's relationships with Jack and Dan.
In 2006, Coop used his ring to insert Paige inside Henry's body, after Paige came to him, seeking help in dealing with Henry. After a few hours together Paige and Henry worked out their problems and asked Coop to separate them; with a waving his hand, Paige's entire body and mind then appeared from inside Henry.
When Phoebe proved resistant to opening up her heart to anyone, because how her previous relationships ended. Coop used his ring to conjure images from Phoebe's heart of all her past loves, showing her how great her loves where when they began.
In 1999, a unnamed male Cupid used this power to help a couple, Max and Cindy, realize their true feelings for each other. Drazi then used the ring he stoled from the unnamed cupid to turn Max and Cindy against each other.
Drazi continued his work to undo Cupid's love and went to P3, where Prue and Piper were on a double date with Jack and Dan. He used the ring to play on their doubts and fears about each other as well as their relationship.
In 2006, Coop used his ring to bring an energy field that was blocking Phoebe's heart to the surface, so they both could see it. He later used his ring to destroy the field, which opened up Phoebe's heart to love again.
While Drazi was in possession of a Cupid's ring, it protected him from being vanquished by witchcraft permanently, meaning the ring had some amount of protection magic. He wasn't vanquished again until after it was removed.
Stealing the RingEdit
The ring has been stolen twice by two different demon on two different occasions.
- Drazi: stole a ring from the Cupid that destroyed his relationship. He then used it to destroy the relationships the cupid had created.
- Dumain: stole Coop's ring and gave it to Christy. Christy then used it to transport herself and Dumain back in time to give The Triad a warning.
