Familiar Hunters are warlocks who hunt familiars to prevent them from guiding and protecting good witches. By killing familiars, their charges would be left defenseless and vulnerable to evil in all its shifting guises.


In 2003, a Familiar Hunter hunted down Kit, the former Familiar of the Charmed Ones, who was rewarded for her deeds by being turned human. By scrying for her, he found the former Familiar, now called Katrina, at her home. He attacked her, though she managed to get away and went to the Halliwell Manor for help.

When the Familiar Hunter arrived at the manor, he along with Phoebe and Paige, became stuck in the memories of Piper Halliwell after she had cast a memory spell. While stuck in the memories, he tried to kill the feline Kit several times and eventually succeeded, thus altering the past.

However, Phoebe was later able to contact Piper while inside the memories and asked her sister to relive the last memory one more time. As the memory was reversed, Phoebe and Paige attacked the Familiar Hunter and managed to vanquish him with his own athame.
