"It was better than you can possibly imagine. Danger, excitement, the warm glow you feel afterwards. There's nothing like it."
—Rowan telling Paige about the first time he drank blood.[src]

Rowan was a powerful vampire, who served as a top messenger and minion to his Queen.


In that capacity, Rowan came to the apartment of Cole Turner, the new host to the Source of All Evil, and proposed lifting the vampires' exile in exchange for his clan and queen's loyalty. He met Paige Matthews when she came to the apartment to talk to Cole about Phoebe Halliwell. Talking in the elevator with Paige, the two expressed a common dislike and mistrust for Cole - common, that is, despite their opposing bents and reasons for it. Paige then suggested he meet her that night at P3.

Rowan immediately told his Queen that he'd run into Cole's sister-in-law--meaning she was a Charmed One. The Queen believed that if they could turn Paige into a vampire, she'd give their clan enough power to wrest control of the underworld from Cole before he could consolidate his power.

That night, Rowan led flock of vampires in bat form in attacking Paige at P3. Paige was on her way home, believing that Rowan had stood her up. Later that night, Paige turned into a vampire. He and his Queen suggested that for her first meal, she feed on her sisters in hopes of turning all of the Charmed Ones into vampires. They thought that if they could get all three Charmed Ones on their side, Cole wouldn't stand a chance against them.

While trying to help Paige complete her conversion by sucking her sisters' blood, Rowan was vanquished when Phoebe impaled him with a stake.
