Jeric was a powerful demon from ancient Egypt. He possessed the ability to trap souls inside mummy wrappings and transfer the waiting soul to another living body. He was so powerful that the ancient Egyptians couldn't find a way to vanquish him and could only mummify him. However, an evil witch named Isis freed him just as he was being mummified. They fell in love, but Jeric's enemies tracked Isis down and skinned her alive. Before Isis's soul could move on, Jeric trapped her soul in a scarab brooch. He spent several millennia trying to find a body that could host Isis permanently, killing an endless amount of witches along the way.
After traveling throughout the Middle East for ages, Jeric surfaced in the United States in 2002. He tried to put Isis into five witches, all of whom ended up dying. However, in early 2003, the last one managed to find Phoebe Halliwell by scrying. Jeric and Isis believed that Isis could tap into Phoebe's powers and expel Phoebe's soul, allowing her to be permanently reincarnated. Jeric kidnapped Phoebe to his lair in ancient Egypt and transferred Isis' soul to Phoebe's body.
His actions provoked Piper and Paige to turn to Cole for help. Cole, however, had by this time turned completely evil again due to the combined weight of his insanity and the powers he had absorbed from the Demonic Wasteland. He traveled to Egypt and offered a trade of souls in hopes of getting Phoebe back. Jeric wasn't willing to deal with Cole at first but changed his mind after Phoebe's body started to burn out faster than all of Isis's previous hosts. It turned out that upper-level witches' bodies break down faster than lower-level ones when they have two souls in them.
After Jeric had Isis possess Paige's body, he and Cole tried to convince Piper to give up Paige for Phoebe. However, Piper turned the tables on the two demonic suitors by casting a spell that ejected Isis's soul from Paige's body, sending Isis to the afterlife. Jeric thought that Piper had ejected Paige's soul and didn't know he'd been double-crossed until Paige kneed him in the groin to incapacitate him. Piper then blew up Jeric, proving just how formidable her blasting power had become. She then remarked that they were finally together now.
