31st October, 2001; the Master's lair
Widowed from Pamela Bousquet
Pamela Bousquet (wife) †
- Cole: I didn't know demons could be good like that.
- Phoebe: Demons can't. But Qalmor hadn't really been a demon for a long time. When you take the demon out of the man, he can be good. And he can love.
Qalmor was a major character from the short story, Samhain of the non-canonical novel Seasons of the Witch Vol. 1. He was a powerful demon who assassinated witches for millennia before coming across Pamela Bousquet in 1780's France and fell under her love spell. He was also the mortal enemy of another powerful demon known as "the Master".
Initially a lower-level demon, Qualmor slowly built his power by hunting witches to steal their powers—his ability to absorb their powers and life-forces gave him an advantage. After three thousand years of hunting witches, he became a formidable figure both in the Underworld and other witches, while also being at war with another Upper-Level demon called the Master. Neither ever came out on top.
Falling In Love With Pamela Bousquet
In 1780's, Qalmor tracked a move on a Warren witch named Pamela Bousquet to France to obtain her powers. Knowing she wouldn't stand a chance against him, the woman cast a love spell on him instead, and subsequently falling in love with him herself. They married in France in 1783. However, after living 10 happy years together, she died during the French Revolution in July 1793. Following her death, Qualmor went into hiding since Pamela left her powers in a pendant to keep the spell intact, and chose to never kill good witches ever again.
- "You loved me truly. And now that the spell is gone, I find that I loved you truly as well. You taught me how to be good."
In 2001, Pamela's spirit sensed that something was coming for her husband and used the day of Samhain to cross over to the physical realm where she possessed Phoebe Halliwell's body to undo the spell, so that he may be able to defend himself. His archenemy, The Master, drew Qalmor out of hiding by kidnapping Pamela, and destroyed the necklace that stored her powers. Qalmor furiously attacked Pamela, thinking she never loved him.
He eventually realized she returned to the living realm for his sake, because she grew to love him, and that his love for her was real as well. Having overheard a conversation between the Charmed Ones about him and the Master being connected, Qalmor allowed himself to be killed by his mortal enemy to protect Pamela. With his death, they were both vanquished.
