Dark Priestesses are upper-level demons that can bestow great power upon those who they bind as husbands and wives. Using a Dark Binding ceremony, powerful Dark Priestesses overwhelm good individuals with evil and pollute their family lines with darkness. These demons have forsaken their own ambitions of power and dedicating themselves only to the promotion of evil. Dark priests are "shielded" from the radar of beings of light that allows them to conceal their deeds.


Main article: Dantalian

The only priestess shown throughout the series was Dantalian, she betrayed her calling and attempted to gain the power of the Charmed Ones and their Book of Shadows by corrupting them with dark magic. Dantalian enlisted the help of her apparent lover, a warlock named Zile, to kidnap Prue and bring the Halliwell to her lair. She then binded an unconscious Prue to Zile in marriage turning not only the Charmed Ones but also their book evil. Shortly thereafter Dantalian revealed her intention to claim the Charmed Ones' powers for herself alone and had never intended to share this power with Zile as she had promised before killing him.  Dantalian's plan however, was foiled and she was vanquished by the power of three.
