Ronan was a Tracker, a powerful darklighter who hunted down fallen or weak whitelighters, especially those about to lose their wings.


After Sam Wilder stopped using his powers due to his failure to help out an unnamed charge, Ronan came after him. The Elders couldn't track down Sam since he wasn't using his powers, and dispatched Paige Matthews to find him since the only way to track him was through a blood relative. Unaware that "Samuel" is really her father, Paige helps him to his apartment where Ronan is waiting. Paige orbed Sam to the manor, and Ronan black-orbed after him. He shot Sam, but Piper blew off his arm and he black-orbed out.

When Ronan returned to his lair, Cole Turner was waiting for him. Cole recruited Ronan to help him go after the Charmed Ones; in return, he offered to help Ronan finish off Sam. Ronan was skeptical at first, but Cole magically healed his arm. He then told Ronan that he wanted to get the Charmed Ones first because he believed Paige's death would break Sam's spirit. Ronan didn't know, however, that Cole actually wanted to make the Charmed Ones angry enough to come after him and vanquish him. He was not willing to be evil, but believed that the sisters would never accept him as good. Since he felt he had no reason to live, he wanted to commit suicide by a witch.

Ronan attacked the manor again later that night. Piper tried to blast him, but it had no effect; Cole had given Ronan immunity to witchcraft. Phoebe Halliwell then threw a Darklighter vanquishing potion at him, also to no avail. Ronan then shot a bolt that split into three arrows meant for everyone in the room with Whitelighter blood. The first two hit Paige and Leo Wyatt; the third was meant for Piper Halliwell's baby, but bounced off a protective shield that the baby threw up.

Ronan found Sam in an alley and had a clear shot at him, but to his surprise, Cole wouldn't let him finish Sam off. Cole then explained that he wanted the Charmed Ones to come after him. However, he needed Paige alive for them to do it—and only Sam could heal her. He then killed Ronan with an energy ball.
