"If the background information is accurate, there's a curse attached to the urn. Anyone who steals it ends up dead. A victim of the guardian who protects it and she feeds off their greed."
Prue to her sisters.[src]

The Guardian of the Urn is a magical being that protects a priceless Egyptian Urn, once owned by an ancient wizard. When the wizard died, a curse was placed on the urn. When the urn is stolen, the Guardian kills the thieves as punishment for their crime and feeds off their greed. The Guardian only wishes to kill those responsible for the theft, though she will eliminate all those that stand in her way. The only way to break her curse is to perform a selfless act.


"You are being punished for your greed."
—The Guardian to those cursed.[src]

When the Urn was stolen from a mansion in Cairo by Wesley, Palmer Kellogg and Clay Muniz, the Guardian awoke and killed Wesley with a poisonous spider.

Clay brought the urn to San Francisco and talked his ex-girlfriend, Phoebe, into convincing her sister to auction it off. The Guardian confronted Palmer at his hotel and asked where the urn was. She then proceeded to kill him with a scorpion. Meanwhile, Prue discovered the urn was cursed and informed her sisters.


The Guardian disappearing.

The Guardian next confronted Clay and the sisters at Buckland Auction House. When the sisters defended Clay and ran, the Guardian decided that more people needed to die.

In order to protect Phoebe, Clay went to urn so she would be spared. When the sisters arrived, a snake conjured by the Guardian tried to bite Phoebe, though Clay risked his life to protect her. Because of this selfless act, Clay was redeemed by the Guardian, who then returned to the urn and restored it to its rightful place.
