Book of ShadowsEdit
- Related to the darklighters, trackers are harder to kill
- as they are unaffected by those means used to dispose
- of darklighters. With their distinctive markings, trackers
- pick off weak whitelighters to help thin the ranks of good.
- The tracker will never give up once it has a whitelighter
- in its sights. The only chance for the survival depends on
- vanquishing the tracker.
Tracker Vanquishing PotionEdit
Phoebe made a Vanquishing Potion for Ronan. When Cole called him and he Black Orbed in, Piper tried to blow him up, but he was made Immune to it by Cole. Phoebe then said he wouldn't be Immune to the potion, and threw it, but he was Immune to it as well.
Cole Turner Vanquishing PotionsEdit
While shot by the Tracker, Paige came up with an idea to vanquish Cole: combining three potions. The sisters created three potions, as strong as the one they used on the Source. Before going up against Cole, they tested it on the letter opener with Cole's acidic blood on it, and the potions completely destroyed it. However, Cole still survived after the combination of the three potions.
- Regeneration: Used by Cole to heal himself after being shot.
- Telekinesis: Used by Cole to fling the two robbers.
- Energy Balls: Used by Cole to kill the robbers. He later used it to attack two Avatars. He later used it to vanquish Ronan.
- Fading: Type of Teleportation used by the Avatars, the Elf Nanny and Cole.
- Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Leo, Paige and Sam.
- Black Orbing: Type of Teleportation used by Ronan.
- Apportation: Used by the Elf Nanny to apport a quill and parchment.
- Molecular Combustion: Used by Piper to blow up Ronan's arm. She later tried to blow him up, but he was made Immune to it by Cole.
- Healing: Used by Leo to heal Sam. Sam used it to heal Paige and Leo.
- Conjuration: Used by Cole to conjure a new arm for Ronan.
- Power Granting: Used by Cole to grant Ronan Immunity to witches' powers and potions.
- Shapeshifting: Used by Cole to shapeshift into Sam and back into himself.
- Ronan's Darklighter Arrows are tripled.
- Orb Shield: Used by Piper's baby to protect Piper from within the womb.
- Sensing: Used by Paige to sense Sam.
- Darklighter Arrows - Ronan used these arrows to shoot Sam, Paige, Leo and Piper's baby. After Cole granted him Immunity, Ronan's arrows were tripled, causing him to be able to shoot Paige, Leo and Piper's baby (although the baby protected itself, using a Shield) at the same time.
- Darklighter Crossbow - Used by Ronan to shoot Darklighter Arrows with.
- Sam Wilder - Paige's biological father. He was made Whitelighter again after going to the Afterlife. As he was a step away from losing his wings, he disappeared from the "radar" of the Elders. The only way to find him, was through a blood relative (Paige), thus being Paige's first charge. At the end of the episode, they helped each other with dealing with Paige being left at a church after her birth.
- Ronan - A Tracker. He helps Cole with his plan at the agreement that Cole would help Ronan get Sam in return for attacking the Charmed Ones. He shot Paige and Leo (and tried to shoot Piper's baby) with his Darklighter Arrows. Cole hoped it would blind the sisters by hate that much that they would vanquish him. After Ronan has done his bidding, Cole refuses to let him attack Sam, gave him chance to walk away (and get shot in the back), and then promptly vanquishes Ronan.
- Elf Nanny - Piper and Leo interviewed her for a job as Piper and Leo's nanny.
- Alpha and the Avatar of Force - Avatars. They wanted Cole to join them.
- Trevor - Paige's ex-boyfriend. She dumped him, saying their relationship wasn't going anywhere, but in fact, she did it because of her abandonment issues.
