Soul of the Bride


Nikos is the main antagonist of the Charmed novel Soul of the Bride. He is the son of Hades, the Greek God of one portion of the Underworld known as "Hades".


Nikos was the twelfth and youngest prince of Hades. His father laid a decree to strip his powers and divinity unless he married a goddess or a witch before his 25th birthday.

Seducing PhoebeEdit

Nikos chose Phoebe Halliwell because her name was the same as one of the Titans. To get her attention, Nikos posed as a loving art student. The two seemed to have chemistry, but Nikos was only interested in keeping his godhood. He also made a back-up plan with a journalist named Mitchell Pearl. When Phoebe asked him to model for Prue's photo shoot, he brought a cursed camera to trap the other models' souls in Hades as hostages. After returning to his home, he sent multiple mythological creatures (Harpies, Gorgons, and Centaurs) to kill Prue and Piper while taking Phoebe back to his castle.

The sisters made their way to the Underworld and traveled to Nikos's castle, where he revealed his true nature: a sadistic and self-interested prince. Once Phoebe was within his grasp, he banished Prue and Piper, and locked her in a chamber. He also sent servants to serve her food, but Phoebe recalled enough of Piper's knowledge on Greek mythology to recognize that she should avoid eating anything in the Underworld to maintain her freedom, buying time for her sisters to come and rescue her. The next day, Nikos's family were having a party when Prue and Piper snuck back into the castle and retrieved Phoebe. Nikos then used the models as leverage to make Phoebe to marry him. But in the final confrontation, Prue learned that he had to claim Phoebe as his bride by his birthday or be banished by his father, and the Charmed Ones cast a spell that accelerated time by a few days to that date, forcing Nikos to become mortal and be banished from the Underworld as he had technically failed.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Nikos was described to be an extremely handsome young man who resembled his father: tall and angular, with curly, glossy black hair, intense blue eyes, a strong jaw, and rosy cheeks.
