Drake dè Mon was a powerful Mercury Demon who struck a deal with a sorcerer to make him human for a year, on the condition that he give up his immortality after experiencing life with a human soul. Drake met the Charmed Ones near the end of this year, when he applied for the position of Literature Professor at Magic School. He became romantically involved with Phoebe Halliwell and reminded her of her capacity to love before he moved on.
Right before his death, it was revealed that all of this was actually a plan set up by Cole Turner from the Cosmic Void, who led Drake to the Sorcerer in exchange for helping Phoebe open herself up to love again.
Drake was a Mercury Demon, though little is known about his past other than his passion and self-found humanity inspired by literature. He claims never to have killed an innocent in his entire demonic life saying he "found ways around it". While he was still a demon, he went from lair to lair in the Underworld selling copies of a book called, "Possessions, Confessions, And Ghostly Obsessions: A Demon's Guide To Everything Magical". He followed many passions over the years, such as attending Juilliard College for the Performing Arts, performed on Broadway, and tried to write a memoir. However, he never did any of those things for longer than a year.
Due to his passion for art and the desire to experience human life, Drake sought out a Demonic Sorcerer who turned him mortal and granted him a soul for a year, after which he would die. He would keep his powers, but would be forced to forfeit them to the Sorcerer if he used them in an offensive manner. The Sorcerer was confident that Drake would eventually give in to his malevolent side, but underestimated Drake's capacity for goodness, since what the Sorcerer wanted was to claim Drake's powers to boost his own if he ever intended to compete with Zankou.
During her time as headmistress of Magic School, Paige Matthews sought to hire a new Literature professor. Drake arrived in the grand hall of the school on his motorcycle and applies for the job. Despite his demonic background, Paige considered hiring him and Drake started flirting with Phoebe.
While at the manor, Drake turned himself into Robin Hood and turned Phoebe and her sisters into Maid Marian and the merry-men. However, the Sorcerer attacked him to goad him into using his powers offensively, so that he would gain them instead. The attack caused Drake to lose his memories and he started believing he was the real Robin Hood. He then went after a corrupt business man after Phoebe complained about her bills, following by his "Maid Marian". Drake then attacked the businessman with his powers after the Sorcerer placed a spell on the man, thus breaking the deal. The Sorcerer arrived and took his powers, sending Drake to purgatory.
Drake was eventually freed and his powers were restored after the Charmed Ones vanquished the Sorcerer with help from Miss Donovan. Paige then hired him as the new Literature professor and Drake informed Phoebe that he only had two more weeks to live.
Falling in Love with Phoebe Halliwell
Over the next two weeks, Drake took Phoebe on adventures to slowly help open herself to love again. They even go as far as astral projecting into a time loop of souls trapped within Cabaret Fantome. Drake, in turn, falls in love with Phoebe himself. The evil spirit Count Roget traps Drake and Phoebe in the realm while he takes over Drake's body. Phoebe, however, manages to escape and recover Drake's body and soul.
Drake spent his last day convincing the distraught Charmed Ones not to give up on love after Leo was sent on a quest to choose his life path without his memories. Piper is injured by a poisonous thorn, and while Phoebe and Paige go to find Leo, Drake has Wyatt heal her.
As his time came to an end, Drake told Phoebe that he didn't want her to see him die, and so he went out into the hall at Magic School. Once there, it was revealed that Cole Turner had actually led him to the Sorcerer in an attempt to show Phoebe that she could love again. When the clock began to chime, Drake died and was seen as a spirit before ascending to heaven.
