Ruth Cobb

These talismans were enchanted by Ruth Cobb, an evil witch, using the power of All Hallows' Eve. They were placed around her house, where Charlotte Warren was trapped and about to give birth to Melinda Warren. They were used to detect and repel good witches.



Eva and the Charmed Ones repelled by a talisman.

Eva and her coven had made numerous attempts to rescue Charlotte, but the talismans repelled them each time.

When Eva, Prue, Piper, and Phoebe arrived to save Charlotte, the talismans were imbued with such power that it sent them flying, alerting their presence to the Witch Hunters. Finally, Phoebe removed their magic by using a broomstick to sweep away evil magic from their path, allowing them to get in, save Charlotte, and help deliver Melinda.[1]
